Week 8 of the 2018 NFL season schedule will get underway this evening when the Miami Dolphins take on the surging Houston Texans from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. While both teams are 4-3 on the season, they are definitely heading in polar opposite directions.

Texas Flood

It seems like ages ago, but heading into Week 4, the Miami Dolphins were a perfect 3-0 while the Houston Texans sat at an awful 0-3 mark. Fast forward to Week 8, and it is the Texans that are taking over the AFC South. With the Jaguars sputtering a bit, the South is wide open, and right now it seems that the Texans are ready to capitalize.

According to SB Nation, Houston has a great chance to win their fifth straight game this evening when they host the injury-riddled Miami Dolphins. What started out with so much promise for the Dolphins has turned into a nightmare. The good news for Miami is they still have plenty of time to right the ship. In a season that looks to be shaping up that a 9-7 team has a great shot at a wild-card, Miami is still very much alive.

The bad news is on a short week they have to travel to Texas to face a Houston team that is playing with a ton of confidence.

Schedule, odds and ATS pick

Week 8 has a ton of great NFL action. In fact, almost every game on the board has two teams facing off that are neck and neck in the standings.

Cleveland at Pittsburgh, Seattle at Detroit, and New Orleans at Minnesota are just a few of the top-notch teams facing off this week.

Last week was another great one in terms of the NFL picks ATS. The week finished up a season-best 5-1 ATS. Below is a look at the Week 8 schedule, current odds, and predictions.
