Monday Night: Las Vegas Raiders @ Detroit Lions
Bye Week: None

And now the Comm-nosticator’s predictions for week 8:

Yuengling Brewers (-1/2) vs. Renegades
Two-thirds of the Beermen's starters are projected to score double digits. It should end up closer than the estimations, but Coach Val will need a big game out of each of her MNF players to have a chance at an upset.

Predacons (-1/2) vs. Misfits, Inc.
For the first four weeks of the season the Preds couldn't lose. Now it seems like they can't win. Last week they lost their third in a row, despite being 25 point favorites. There is another big odds line here but maybe they can at least eek out a victory?

Baltimorons (-1/2) vs. Stiletto Stompers
These two have the same record and only eight points separates their season point totals. The 'Morons have a slight edge at RB which might be the difference. But are the Stompers really starting the TB Defense against the Bills tonight?

the HAW (-1/2) vs. Dumbbums
It's easy to win when your team scores 40 points above your projected total. And it probably won't take that many to beat the CAPS, who have had two unlucky games in a row. They should win this one, though, as long as D'Onta Foreman has an appropriate total on Sunday night.

Phys. Ed. Phenoms (-1/2) vs. Spiked Vipers
After losing their first four games of the season, PEP have won their last three and hold the same record as the Vipers. A bunch of Qs on both teams will probably hold the key to victory here, but let's also watch what happens with each of their underperforming QBs.

And the game of the week...

Marauders (-1/2) vs. Lightning
The Bolts took over the top spot in the league and stand alone with a 5-2 record. It's going to be tough to stay there as they face off against the high flying Marauders. This 1 vs. 2 matchup starts tonight but won't be decided until Sunday Night Football wraps up. It really could go either way.

Happy Halloween and good luck this week!
