The main slate on Sunday kicks off in London at 9:30 AM and features a total of 12 games. The Chiefs and Chargers both have week 8 byes, removing two of the better offenses in the league from our pool of player props this week.

We broke down the available props for all 12 games to identify our 14 best bets from the entire NFL Week 8 slate. Here are our picks along with the sportsbook with the best available odds.

Latavius Murray - Anytime Touchdown Prop

Best Available Odds: +240 at BetMGM

Murray has hit paydirt in 2 of his 3 games with the Broncos. He faces the Jaguars this week who have allowed 7 touchdowns on the ground this season. Russ has had his issues getting the ball in the endzone while in the red zone so we expect the Broncos to lean on Murray here.

Jalen Hurts - Anytime Touchdown Prop

Best Available Odds: +140 at Caesars

The Eagles are coming off a bye and facing a Steelers team that is double digit dogs. We believe the Eagles are going to run the Steelers right out of Lincoln Financial this Sunday and Hurts will add to his 6 rushing touchdowns on the ground.

Michael Pittman Jr. - Anytime Touchdown Prop

Best Available Odds: +185 at Caesars

Pittman missed on our touchdown prop last week for us but we are firing away again this week. He faces the Commanders this week who have allowed the 2nd most passing touchdowns on the year. At 14 touchdowns allowed through the air through 7 games, Pittman should have a solid chance of getting in the end zone for the 1st time since Week 1 in this matchup.

Jalen Hurts Over 1.5 TD Passes

Best Available Odds: +110 at DraftKings

Are we crazy for believing that Hurts will be able to hit both this prop and the anytime rushing touchdown? Maybe, but coming off a bye against a weak Steelers, this Eagles should be able to put up some serious numbers on offense.

Trevor Lawrence Under 214.5 Passing Yards

Best Available Odds: -114 at FanDuel

The Broncos are holding opponents to under 200 passing yards per game and rank 3rd in the league. Lawrence is averaging just over 240 passing yards per game. We believe this will be a close game and there will not be much need for Lawrence to force the ball downfield much causing his total to come in under the total.

Kenny Pickett Over 1.5 Interceptions

Best Available Odds: +190 at BetRivers

The Eagles are 2nd in the league with 9 interceptions. They have had 2 games this season where they picked off the opposing QB more than once. They face Kenny Pickett who has already thrown 7 in 4 games. Now the Eagles get a full week off to scheme and study for this game? We believe they are going to light up Pickett and will get multiple interceptions.

Davis Mills Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns

Best Available Odds: +128 at BetRivers

Mills has thrown for 2 touchdowns in 3 of his 6 games this season. The Titans, his opponent this week, have allowed 13 passing touchdowns on the year which is 8th worst in the league. Tennessee may win but Mills will be throwing a good amount and will have chances to get this plus money ticket cashed.

Geno Smith Under 0.5 Interceptions

Best Available Odds: -118 at BetRivers

Geno has only thrown 3 interceptions this season. For the most part, the Seahawks success has come on the ground and with their defense. They face a staunch Giants defense here that has not given up much to opposing offenses. That said, the Giants only have 1 interception this season which is 2nd to last in the league. We believe Geno can get through this one unscathed.

Rhamondre Stevenson Under 62.5 Rushing Yards

Best Available Odds: -109 at Caesars

Stevenson failed to get over 40 yards last game against the Bears. Damien Harris was back in that game and was used a bit. He will be back again this week and should be more involved. The Jets are allowing just over 100 yards per game on the ground which is top 10 in the league. The Jets are capable of getting up early on this Pats team and if so, Stevenson will be used even less.

Alvin Kamara Under 61.5 Rushing Yards

Best Available Odds: -110 at DraftKings

The Raiders are similar to the Jets in rush defense and are in fact a bit better. Kamara has only surpassed this total in 2 of his 5 games this season. Vegas is a short favorite this week and the Saints may be in more passing situations than rushing this Sunday. Kamara may go off in the passing game but should be limited on the ground.

Derrick Henry Over 98.5 Rushing Yards

Best Available Odds: -115 at BetMGM

Henry gets the worst rush defense in the league this week. The Texans are allowing almost 165 yards per game on the ground. Henry is already averaging 89 yards per game against average defenses and has surpassed 100 yards in 3 straight games. He will make that 4 straight this week as he tears through this week Texans rush defense.

Jaylen Waddle Over 62.5 Receiving Yards

Best Available Odds: -113 at BetRivers

The Lions are allowing an average of 260 yards through the air this season. That places them in the bottom 10 in the league. Waddle has Tua back and that is a good omen for him as he has had games of 69, 171, 102, and 88 with Tua running the show. We expect him to get over 100 here and this prop being a gift.

DJ Moore Over 58.5 Receiving Yards

Best Available Odds: -115 at DraftKings

The Falcons are the worst team in the league against the pass. They allow on average 318 yards per game through the air. DJ Moore is legitimately the only threat on the Carolina offense and should be force fed the ball in this game. He may end up with just 8 yards per catch but he should get a ton of work and the 60 yards should be manageable.

Saquon Barkley Over 3.5 Receptions

Best Available Odds: -135 at DraftKings

Barkley has grabbed 4 or more receptions in 3 games this season. However, in 2 other games, he had 4 or more targets. He faces the Seahawks this week who are susceptible to running backs catching out of the backfield. Ekeler caught 12 passes, Kamara had 6, even Eno Benjamin had 3. Barkley should have no issues picking up 4 or more catches here in this one.

For the first time this season, DraftKings Sportsbook did not take sole ownership of the best odds award for week 8! BetRivers Sportsbook (who did not have odds available for all of these props) ties DraftKings with the best odds for 4 of our 14 props this week.

Good on DraftKings for not losing the title, but definitely a wake-up call for bettors that have not yet given BetRivers a look!
