Cincinnati Bengals fans were optimistic when the team drafted quarterback Joe Burrow first overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. Now they are giddy, as the former Heisman Trophy winner has recovered from major knee surgery and teamed with former LSU teammate Ja'Marr Chase to form a scary combination. The Bengals have also been stout on defense and share the AFC North lead with the Baltimore Ravens at 5-2 after winning four of their past five. Cincinnati is a 10-point road favorite against the New York Jets in the latest Week 8 NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Should you jump on the Bengals with your NFL survivor pool picks?

The Bengals could be one of the popular NFL knockout pool picks, with several other teams also worth considering. The Buffalo Bills (-13.5 against the Miami Dolphins), Los Angeles Rams (-14.5 against the Houston Texas) and Kansas City Chiefs (-10 vs. New York Giants) also could be attractive NFL football pool picks. Before you lock in any Week 8 NFL survivor picks, you need to see which team the red-hot SportsLine Projection Model is backing.

The model can be used to crush the survivor pool format, which calls for picking one team to win each week but never using the same team twice. The player who lasts the most weeks without picking a losing team wins the pool. In the model's simulations, the team winning the highest percentage each week has gone a perfect 7-0 after the Cardinals (84 percent) crushed the Texans in Week 7. 

Arizona joined the 49ers (75 percent in Week 1), Buccaneers (79 percent in Week 2), Cardinals and Ravens (79 percent in Week 3), Bills (87 percent in Week 4), Patriots (78 percent in Week 5) and Colts (81 percent in Week 6) as winners for survivor contestants who used those teams over the first seven weeks. You can only see who the model is backing in Week 8 at SportsLine.

Top Week 8 NFL survivor pool predictions

For NFL Week 8, the model is recommending you fade the Chiefs, even though the reigning AFC champs host the 2-5 Giants on Monday Night Football. Kansas City will be looking to make a statement in primetime, but was dominated by the Titans in a 27-3 loss in Week 7. Patrick Mahomes and his cache of offensive weapons remain, but he has nine interceptions and has been sacked 14 times as the offensive line struggles to protect him.
