Week 7 NFL action is underway, but FanDuel Sportsbook has already released NFL odds and lines for Week 8, giving us an early preview of the upcoming slate.

Week 8 includes a matchup between the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions.

Dolphins vs Lions Odds & Lines Week 8

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: MIA: (-174) | DET: (+146)
Spread: MIA: -3 (-115) | DET: +3 (-105)
Total: N/A — Over: (N/A) | Under: (N/A)

The Dolphins go on the road as slight favorites against the Lions in Week 8. Miami is an early -174 moneyline favorite and favored by 3 points on the spread.

Dolphins vs Lions Prediction Week 8

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Dolphins: 60.8% to win
Lions: 38.7% to win

Oddsmakers are giving Miami the edge ahead of this contest. ESPN's FPI also likes the Dolphins, and I'm in agreement. Despite some impressive offensive performances to start the year, the Lions have only managed to win one game so far.

Miami, on the other hand, has looked like a playoff team when healthy and is trending up with the return of Tua Tagovailoa. Take the Dolphins -3 (-115).
