2023 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools Week 8 Recap

By Jeff Stinger

The hits just keep coming, as Week 8 of the 2023 NFL season had plenty of unlikely upsets. Our entire Nitro NFL Survivor campaign has been hit hard in the first half already, which should mean a rough time for our remaining survivors in our buy-in pools. However, is that really the case?

Nitrobetting is here to take your bets into the end zone this 2023 NFL season. This time, let’s take a closer look at what transpired in the intense Week 8 action of our Nitro NFL Survivor Pools campaign. 

2023 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools: Week 8 Recap

The Damage Has Already Been Done

Nitrobetting continues to deliver the best NFL survivor experience on the web with its 2023 Nitro NFL Survivor Pool contests with a total prize purse worth over 6 BTC (~$207,500) across multiple public and private survivor pools.

A pair of Super Bowl contenders suffered massive upsets in Week 9, with the Chiefs getting stunned in Mile High by the Broncos and the 49ers losing at home to the rising Bengals. The Denver’s victory was the most shocking of them all, as KC had a 17-game win streak against the Broncos entering their latest divisional clash.

Despite those two upsets, and luckily for the remaining survivors in our eight buy-in Nitro NFL Survivor Pools that began play in Week 1, this past week’s developments didn’t factor much in terms of eliminations. In fact, there were only a total of seven players who were eliminated this week, and our top three buy-in pools (Nitrogen, Hall of Fame, and MVP Pools) went untouched at that.

Week 8 was an oasis for our survivors amidst the bloody battlefield of the 2023 NFL season. However, it’s about to get much tougher as we approach the midway point of the campaign, especially with the Week 9 schedule having slim pickings as we’ll get into the next section below.

Here’s how the 2023 Nitro NFL Survivor Pool landscape looks after Week 8:

NFL Survivor Picks for Week 9

Most of the matchups on Week 9’s slate are relatively balanced affairs. Thus, finding an easy survivor lock on the schedule is as confounding as it has been all season. That said, one might be inclined to take a risk and bank on a pair of four-win teams that do have their flaws. In our humble opinion, though, there’s no better time to pick either New Orleans or Cleveland as a survivor lock this season considering the heavy unpredictability of these two teams’ respective division races.

The Saints just scored 38 points on the road in a win over the Colts, and they’re currently (-7.5) favorites to beat a Chicago Bears team whose offense is still being helmed by backup quarterback Tyson Bagent and not Justin Fields. The Browns are also worth considering for survivor this week, as they’ll be hosting the one-win Arizona Cardinals as (-8.0) home favorites.
