Our staff and community make weekly game picks across the league

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Green Bay Packers

The Las Vegas Raiders are on a bye but we’re grinders and don’t take any time off, so our writers and fan community 2021 NFL Season Pick ‘Em challenge at Silver and Black Pride is on for Week 8.

Here are the Week 8 odds from our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook. Live odds are available for tonight’s game as well, and the opening line is Cardinals -6.

After a total of 94 possible contests, here is the writer’s standing:

  1. Matt Holder 70-37-0 (65%)
  2. Bill Williamson 70-37-0 (65%)
  3. BD Williams 62-45-0 (58%)
  4. Marcus Johnson 54-40-0 (57%)

It was a rough week for me as I went 8-5 and Bill closed the gap on me with a 10-3 record in Week 7. Marcus technically gained ground on BD...but because he didn’t submit picks...whomp, whomp, whomp. BD floated around .500 by going 7-6.

Fan Community Leaderboard

We officially have a three-way tie for first place! Huge weeks from Ren Hoek and LivingLegnd were enough to close the gap on Wall So Hard. Everyone within the top 8 is still within two games of each other, so this contest is certainly still up for grabs. Shoutout to Raiders805 for coming out of nowhere to tie the most correct picks for the week.
