Here at Cappers Info, we are taking a weekly look at the teams that could be ones ripe to pull off some major upsets! Check out the potentially ugly dogs that could come up and bite you in the butt in you aren't careful for NFL Week 8 for pro football betting action!

Underdog Pick #1: Denver Broncos (+110 at Diamond Sportsbook) vs. San Francisco 49ers, Sunday, 1:00 ET: Give us a break. C'mon, the 49ers are playing with a third string quarterback making his first start in years. The Broncos are significantly better than the 2-5 record that they are sporting right now, though last week's 59-14 loss to the Oakland Raiders sort of begs to differ about that. Every team has a dud every now and again, and for Denver, last week was it. The short passing game is a great strategy to try to beat a San Fran defense that has been the best part of the team to date. Some of the best running backs in the NFL have absolutely been crushed by this Denver 'D' this year. Don't let that big performance last week by RB Darren McFadden fool you. It'll be tough sledding for RB Frank Gore, and we bet that the speed of the defense will be able to keep QB Troy Smith in the pocket, which will take away his legs. Parlay that with the ability to just let their corners stick one on one with receivers, and the Broncos could be in for a fine showing in Jolly Ol' England.

Underdog Pick #2: Jacksonville Jaguars (+240 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Dallas Cowboys, Sunday 1:00 ET: This NFL underdog pick is simply based off the fact that there is a good chance that the Cowboys just hit the self-destruct button and forget about the rest of this nightmare of a season. There's no reason that a team that is 1-5 and has looked like you know what all season should be laying 6.5 points, even against a Jacksonville team that has really shown very little this year. QB David Garrard should be back in the saddle once again, and he has already directed a win against the Indianapolis Colts this season. Don't be overly shocked if this is yet another "upset" in what might be the last week you see the Cowboys getting this type of respect on the NFL lines.

Underdog Pick #3: Buffalo Bills (+280 at Diamond Sportsbook) @ Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 1:00 ET: Ah yes… the upset that would blow up virtually every Survivor Pool in the country… The Bills nearly did that last week at the Baltimore Ravens, pushing one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl to overtime before finally succumbing. Look, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick isn't the second coming of QB Jim Kelly, but he is certainly playing better ball right now than recent QB rejects like QB JP Losman and QB Trent Edwards ever did. Buffalo has to win a game at some point… right…? The Chiefs are due to be coming back to earth at any moment now, and we think that this is the perfect combination of a great time for a good game from Buffalo parlayed with a perfect letdown spot for Kansas City.
