NFL football pool, pick’em, office pool, confidence picks: Back the Seahawks in Week 8, 2021

Entering NFL office pool picks might not require you to know the depth charts of every team. However, it’s been another injury-riddled season and it’s important to keep up with the latest NFL injury news before making your Week 8 NFL confidence pool picks. Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield has expressed a desire to play through a fracture in his non-throwing shoulder after dislocating it multiple times and tearing his labrum.

However, the decision isn’t solely being left to Mayfield, and the Browns could start Case Keenum against the Steelers on Sunday. That’s just one of dozens of high-profile injuries, so you’ll need to adjust your NFL pool picks accordingly. Before you make your NFL predictions, you need to see the Week 8 NFL football pool picks from SportsLine’s proven model.

The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,700 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six years ago. It went a sizzling 24-14 on top-rated NFL picks last season, returning more than $800. The model also enters Week 8 of the 2021 season on an incredible 126-85 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

More importantly for NFL confidence pool players, the model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports office pool players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, the model has simulated the entire Week 8 NFL schedule 10,000 times and generated its optimal NFL pick’em plays. Go to SportsLine to see them.

Top Week 8 NFL office pool predictions

One of the top Week 8 NFL pick’em predictions from the model: The Seahawks cruise past the Jaguars for a comfortable six-point win. Despite losing Russell Wilson to a finger injury during a Week 5 loss to the Rams, the Seahawks have been competitive in primetime games the last two weeks with Geno Smith at the helm.

Seattle lost by three to both Pittsburgh and New Orleans, and after giving up at least 300 passing yards the four previous weeks, the Seahawks’ secondary has finally started to settle in. The Steelers and Saints combined to throw for just 436 yards in those two games and Seattle held its opponents to just 36 combined points.

While the offense has struggled without Wilson and running back Chris Carson (neck), it should receive a boost this week taking on a Jaguars defense that ranks 26th in points allowed per game (28.7) and 30th in yards allowed per game (411.8). The model is predicting nearly 260 passing yards and two touchdowns for Smith as the Seahawks win in well over 60 percent of simulations with a projected final score of 25-19.
