- Today's Eagles vs. Bills and Panthers vs. 49ers NFL Week 8 matchups are expecting windy weather.
- See detailed weather forecast for each game below, as well as how bettors can take advantage.
It’s been an ugly weather weekend across the United States, including plenty of wind and rain affecting yesterday’s college football slate.
While the majority of precipitation has cleared out, there are still windy conditions teams will have to deal with today.
After a historically-windy forecast for Eagles vs. Bills in Buffalo sent that total plummeting, today’s Panthers vs. 49ers matchup (4:05 p.m. ET) at Levi’s Stadium will also be played in some incredibly strong breezes.

Let’s look at the Panthers vs. 49ers weather forecast, including how bettors can take advantage of traditional bet types, as well as player props.
Panthers vs. 49ers Weather Forecast, Betting Analysis
Levi’s Stadium will see 17-18 mph winds this afternoon, which as we detailed above, lends to a lower-scoring game than expected.
This forecast has knocked the total down from 43, as recently as Thursday, to the current number of 40.5.
And as we know from our Bet Labs data, unders are 469-368-10 (56%) in NFL games played in double-digit winds since 2003.
Interestingly, The Action Network’s Sean Koerner also pegged this as a solid under bet earlier this week due to San Francisco’s stellar defense and slow pace offensively. [In New Jersey? Bet now at PointsBet]
Despite the windy conditions, over 4.5 receptions for 49ers tight end George Kittle is popping in FantasyLabs’ Player Props tool, making our projection of 5.5 receptions one of the highest-graded NFL prop bets of the day.
Eagles vs. Bills Weather Forecast, Betting Analysis
It’ll certainly be windy today in Buffalo, and here’s how bettors can take advantage.
Steady 23-mph breezes are expected during today’s game, and should that forecast hold, this will be windiest NFL game since an Eagles-Giants matchup on Dec. 30, 2012 was played in similar 23-mph winds.
The National Weather Service is also calling for gusts as high as 55 mph (!), which will make connecting on big plays downfield quite difficult.
So, it’s no surprise to see this total plummet from 43.5 as recently as Thursday to the current number of 40. [In New Jersey? Bet now at PointsBet]
FantasyLabs’ Player Props tool likes the value on Carson Wentz’s rushing under as well, projecting Philly’s QB to pick up 12.2 yards on the ground, falling 14% below the current over/under.
