NFL Week 7 Picks

It's been a rough week posting this week as I was able to manage not one. I was down for the count earlier in the week and I have been house hunting, so something has to give. But have no fear loyal readers, I am back on the grind next week with the regular schedule of posts.  I missed my pick for the Thursday night game but would have taken the 49ers, who won the game but did not cover the points, so I am in an 0-1 hole to start the week.

Let's take a look at the rest of Week 7 picks (Home team in CAPS):

Titans (+4) vs. BILLS
I like the points, but also I think this game will be an entertaining game because there will be a lot of points scored and not a lot of defense.

COLTS (-1) vs. Browns
Andrew Luck strikes again in this one. He has a big day and the Colts win easily.

RAMS (+5) vs. Packers
Give me the points. The Rams have more wins this year through 6 games then they did all of last year.

VIKINGS (-7) vs. Cardinals
This game is going to be a grind it out type of win for the Vikings. The Cardinals are beat up at QB and RB, and their offensive line is not that good. The only saving grace for the Cards is their defense, just not today.

GIANTS (-6) vs. Redskins
This is a scary game for the Giants. The Skins always play them close and this one won't be any different. Giants score late to cover.

BUCCANEERS (+1) vs. Saints
The Bucs always play the Saints well and this one is the same. I actually think they win outright.

Cowboys (-1) vs. PANTHERS
The Cowboys finally put together a full game and win one in Carolina. Their defense shuts down Cam Newton and the Panthers.

Ravens (+6.5) vs. TEXANS
 I like the Texans to win the game due to a depleted Ravens D, but this game is close. These two teams are two of the best teams in the AFC, but they are not that overwhelmingly good. They are pretty evenly matched, even with all of the injuries. I expect a close, defensive battle. Ravens keep it close.

Jaguars (+6) vs. RAIDERS
This is a battle of teams looking for a top 5 pick in the draft. Unfortunately, someone has to win and I think I like the points.

Jets (+10) vs. PATRIOTS
I like the points in this game, too. I know the Jets aren't that good this year, but I have a good feeling about this game today.

Steelers (-1) vs. BENGALS
AFC North battle on Sunday night football, and it will be a pretty pedestrian game. Nothing really exciting here, just a Steelers win.

Lions (+6) vs. BEARS
I like the Lions to shock the Bears on MNF, and like a common theme this week, give me the points.

This week: 0-1

Last week: 8-6
Season: 39-48-3
