Boomer & Gio's NFL Picks: 2020 Week 8

75756A5E-120A-4932-810C-2FD980DB785E

Week 7 was not the best for the Boomer & Gio crew, as even though Boomer surged into a first-place tie with a 3-2 week, the group went 5-10 collectively, including the undesirable bagel for Gio.

This week, it’s gettin’ snippy, as a couple of picks were made on the fly solely to be contrarian and hope to pick up a win on the competition! Cutthroat city, man.

First, the current standings (last week in parenthesis):
Boomer: 16-19 (3-2)
Gio: 16-19 (0-5)
Jerry: 13-22 (2-3)
(Al’s parlays still aren’t winning you that hundo and change)

And now, Week 8 picks from B&G (and J), brought to you by Oddstrader.com, Solo Stove, and Prop Swap:

GAME 1: LA Rams at Miami (+3.5)
Gio:
LA Rams
Boomer:
LA Rams
Jerry:
LA Rams

Gio’s take: “I lost with the Rams last week, but I have a winning record with them…I think they’re going to dominate this game. I think it was a bad idea to start Tua against this defense in his first start, so I love the Rams in this game, with a STRONG stamp of approval.”

GAME 2: Las Vegas at Cleveland (-2.5)
Gio:
Las Vegas
Boomer:
Las Vegas
Jerry:
Cleveland

Jerry’s take: “I’m not going to go with the Raiders if you two are, because I need to make a game up! But I’m going to go with Boomer’s idea of addition by subtraction, which I hate to say, but maybe they’re more cohesive without OBJ.”

GAME 3: San Francisco at Seattle (-3)
Gio:
Seattle
Boomer:
San Francisco
Jerry:
San Francisco

Boomer’s take: “I’m actually going to take the 49ers here, because of the way they’ve played the last couple weeks. Jimmy G has played really well, and they’ve won two in a row now. Russell Wilson has been spectacular, but this is a division game – and much as Russell found out last week against Arizona, teams in your division are coming after you. I think this is gonna be a close game.”

GAME 4: NY Jets at Kansas City (-19.5)
Gio:
Kansas City
Boomer:
NY Jets
Jerry:
Kansas City

Gio’s take: “There’s no way the Jets will score two touchdowns in this game. The Chiefs will score over 30, and it will be fun to watch this to see how bad it gets. Patrick Mahomes will be out with like 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter.”

GAME 5: Tampa Bay at NY Giants (+10.5)
Gio:
NY Giants
Boomer:
Tampa Bay
Jerry:
Tampa Bay

Boomer’s take: “Everybody talks about the Bucs and Bruce Arians and their offense…it’s really their defense. JPP is gonna have a monster game this week, just you watch!”
