Week 8 Thursday Night Picks
Dolphins at Ravens
Dan Schalk: Baltimore Ravens. I actually have more faith in Matt Moore than I do Joe Flacco, but on a short week at home, I’ll take the Ravens defense to be the catalyst to their victory.
Brandon Reid: Baltimore Ravens. The road teams are 5-2 this year in Thursday night games. Miami is riding a three game winning streak. Baltimore is banged up and probably only operating at 75% health, on a short week. So everything points to a Miami win. Well, since I think I am 1-6 this year picking Thursday night games, and since this season has been pretty crazy in general, I’m picking Baltimore. How’s that for football scientology!
Orlando Torres: Miami Dolphins. Miami surprisingly is 4-2, but also they’re arguably the worst 4-2 team currently. I guess they’ll head into week 9 as the worst 5-2 team because the Ravens currently have no WR’s and more importantly they can’t score..
Graham Sweet (Celebrity Picker): Miami Dolphins. My head is saying that the home team should win on a short week, but I’m going with Miami. I don’t think Baltimore is very good and Miami is battle tested, between the week one bye week because of the hurricane and they’ve shown the ability to close out close games. Not to mention they now have Matt Moore at QB, who actually wasn’t bad in the playoff game last year until he got concussed.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/nfl-pickem-week-8-thursday-night-picks/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/USATSI_9724801-660x330.jpg?fit=660%2C330&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/USATSI_9724801-660x330.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1AFC EastAFC NorthBaltimore RavensMiami DolphinsNFLNFL PicksRecent PostsBaltimore Ravens,Miami Dolphins,NFL,NFL Picks,week 8 thursday nightWelcome to our weekly NFL Pick’em.
