Week 7 is upon us! COVID tests are coming up negative and all games are set to play. Lots of exciting Divisional matchups this week, and two undefeated teams going head to head. Let’s dive in. The lines are determined by ESPN ScoreCenter app at game time.
Lions vs Falcons Line: ATL –1.0
Two teams who are known for disappointment and giving up huge leads. Both should have better records than they do. This is one game I’m looking forward to watching because I’m expecting it to be a high-scoring shoot-out. With that being said, I think the Falcons have the ability to put up more points than the Lions so I’m taking them to cover this game.
Pick: Falcons 35 Lions 27
Packers vs Texans Line: GB –2.5
Both teams gave up sad loses last week. Texans had a chance to comeback and win it but were unable to finish and the Packers embarrassed themselves against the Bucs. I think A-A-Ron comes out on a mission with something to prove and puts up big numbers in a win. Had to adjust the score once I found out Aaron Jones will be inactive, but still believe the Packers come through.
Pick: Packers 31 Texans 27
Browns vs Bengals Line: CLE –4.5
This game was much closer than it should have been when these two faced off earlier in the year. It was high scoring on both sides, and I don’t see that repeating. I think Browns win this one handily, while scoring less than last time.
Pick: Browns 21 Bengals 10
Steelers vs Titans Line: TEN -1.0
Game of the week! Two undefeated teams squaring off, both with dreams of the Super Bowl. Ryan Tannehill has, to my surprise, been playing at an MVP level. Steelers and Big Ben have been finding new weapons and have arguably the leagues best defense? Who comes out on top? I have a feeling the Titans could continue to roll, but I think the Steelers have the ability to put up points and defend. They just have too many weapons. I’m hoping this one comes down to a final play.
Pick: Steelers 38 Titans 35
Panthers vs Saints Line: NO -6.5
The Saints are beat up. Michael Thomas is going to miss another game, Emmanuel Sanders is. out, too. Doesn’t matter. Saints still win and cover.
Pick: Saints 24 Panthers 14
Bills vs Jets Line: BUFF –9.5
Bills win and cover. It’s the Jets.
Pick: Bills 35 Jets 10
Cowboys vs Football Team Line: Even
Oh, the NFC East. What is going on?? The Cowboys have come out and pointed fingers at coaching which is never a good sign, meanwhile the Football Team is having distractions of their own. I think the Cowboys, regardless of how they have played thus far, are still the better team–even with Andy Dalton at QB. They win this one in a sad game that we wish we didn’t watch.
Pick: Cowboys 17 Football Team 6
Buccaneers vs Raiders Line: TB -4.0
The Bucs are rolling. The way the beat up the Packers last week has me really believing in this team. With that being said, I love the way Carr has been playing. I don’t think he gets enough respect. However, the D comes through for TB again here in another win.
Pick: Bucs 24 Raiders 14
Chiefs vs Broncos Line: KC -7.0
Mahomes and co have proven to be dangerous in the snow. I think that continues, I just don’t believe in this Broncos team at all. Chiefs win and cover in the high altitude.
Pick: Chiefs 30 Broncos 10
49ers vs Patriots Line: NE -3.0
You never know what you’re going to get from the 49ers these days. I think Cam has a bounce back week in a win.
Pick: Patriots 24 49ers 20
Jaguars vs Chargers Line: LAC –8
I think Justin Herbert goes on to win Rookie Of The Year and expect a big game from him here at home against the struggling Jags. I just don’t like the points. Every game this season for the Chargers has been a close one, at least in terms of the final score. I think they win by a touchdown or less. Chargers win, Jaguars cover.
Pick: Chargers 24 Jaguars 17
Seahawks vs Cardinals Line: SEA -3.5
Cardinals looks like they could be something to keep our eyes on…three years from now. Seahawks continue to roll.
Pick: Seahawks 30 Cardinals 21
Bears vs Rams Line: LAR -6.0
Monday Night Football with the Bears and Rams. Bears have been one of the surprises of the season, but I think that starts to slow down now. I expect Aaron Donald and the Rams D to step up big in a win in Primetime.
Pick: Rams 24 Bears 17
