With the Ravens on their bye week, we can further shift our focus to the other teams playing this weekend. Luckily, there’s a full slate of must-watch contests that should be competitive and exciting.

Here’s how the staff sees Week 8 playing out. Be sure to join in on the action by voting on the polls for each game down below!

Updated standings:

1) Baltimore Beatdown Readers: 68-38

2) Vasilis: 67-30

3) Taylor: 66-40

4) Kyle B, Frank: 64-42

5) Jake: 61-45


Unanimous Selections

More than half of this week’s matchups were saw a clear predicted winner:

It’s hard to disagree with any of these selections, as each team predicted to win by our team is a prohibited favorite in their respective matchup. Still, it’s surprising nonetheless that not one participator strayed away from the norm.

“Lone Wolf”

There were just two instances of a participant being alone on a selection:

  • Spencer was the only writer to take the Giants over the Lions on the road
  • Jakob is by himself in picking the Raiders to upset the Texans

The Lions are on a bit of a skid but have looked rather competitive and strong for much of this season. Nevertheless, Spencer likes the Giants - who have lost three games in a row - to upset them in Detroit.

Our newest writer at Baltimore Beatdown, Jakob, is starting his pick’ em tenure off with a bold move, taking the Raiders to top the Texans.
