Barstool Sports Advisors NFL Week 8 picks

Through eight weeks of NFL picks, Stu Feiner is the only Barstool Sports Advisor with a winning record (21-18-1).

Also, Feiner, Dave Portnoy and Dan “Big Cat” Katz are all sub. 500 on their “mortal locks.”

On Friday’s episode of Barstool Sports Advisors “Dave Portnoy nearly dies from sickness on Barstool Sports Advisors Set,” the guys were in rare agreement on three games. The “earthquakes” turned out to be mostly winners (2-1).

Here are highlights of Barstool Sports Advisors analysis and you can choose to follow or fade them when making your picks at PA sports betting apps.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns

Dave Portnoy

The pick: Browns -3.5

“I don’t think the Steelers are very good. Mike Tomlin is talking about not going to USC. I’ll take the Browns but I don’t like the game.”


The pick: Steelers +3.5

“Revenge, revenge, revenge. Didn’t the Browns beat the Steelers by like 5,000 in the playoffs? Shred them and torture them? One person you don’t want to f— with is Mike Tomlin because he takes it to the grave. Steelers win the game outright.”

Big Cat

The pick: Steelers+3.5

“I just love Mike Tomlin as an underdog.”

Final score: Steelers 15, Browns 10

Tennessee Titans vs. Indianapolis Colts


The pick: Colts -1

“I think the Colts can make a run at the division. The Titans are good but they had two big games in a row. I love the Colts at home.”


The pick: Colts -1

“I love the Colts. “

Big Cat

The pick: Colts -1, Over 50.5

“I love the Colts and the over. Carson Wentz was a little gimpy the first time they played and he is playing better.”

Final score: Titans 34, Colts 31

New England Patriots vs. Los Angeles Chargers


The pick: Patriots +5.5

“The Patriots are back. I think they are going to the playoffs and are going to make a run at the Super Bowl. I think we beat the Chargers who are a pretty good team.”


The pick: Patriots +5.5

“I think everybody’s betting the Chargers here. They are still my Super Bowl champs. In this game, Chargers win but Pats cover. It’s going to be one of those jerk— backdoor covers.”

Big Cat

The pick: Patriots +5.5, Over 49

“I think the Chargers defense is not great.”

Final score: Patriots 27, Chargers 24

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints


The pick: Saints +5

“I think at home, the Saints keep it close. Stu has been good this year.”


The pick: Saints +5

“I love the Saints defense. The Saints will win. Everybody and their mother is betting Tampa.”

Big Cat

The pick: Saints +5

“The Bucs are on fire. But they lost by ten on the road against the Rams and won by two in New England, won by six in Philly. Road not so great.”

Final score: Saints 36, Buccaneers 27

Dallas Cowboys vs. Minnesota Vikings


The pick: Vikings +2.5

“Everything to me says Cowboys. Man in the suit hasn’t been great this year but how can you not love the Cowboys, having said that, I’ll take the Vikings. It’s impossible to like the Vikings here.”


The pick: no pick

Big Cat

The pick: Vikings +2.5, Over 54.5

“This is a rat line.”

Final score: Cowboys 20, Vikings 16

Barstool Sports Advisors Week 8 “mortal locks”


The pick: Patriots ML

Final score: Patriots 27, Chargers 24


The pick: Lions +145

“I’m taking a team that’s a pathetic story. Lions outright. They win here.”

Final score: Eagles 44, Lions 6

Big Cat

The pick: Redskins +3

“Both these teams suck, just take the dog. Washington still has some guys who could be good.”

Final score: Broncos 17, Washington 10
