WEEK 7 NFL PICKS FOR THE 4 SEASONS SPORTS PALACE
Last week I went 7-7 (58-33) and 6-8 (47-44) against the spread.
Tennessee Titans (3-3) at Cleveland Browns (0-6)
Line: Titans by 5.5
Tennessee is playing on a short week with a bad defense. Good thing they’re in Cleveland. Take the Titans to win and cover.
Jacksonville Jaguars (3-3) at Indianapolis Colts (2-4)
Line: Jaguars by 3
Jacoby Brissett has played well in relief of Andrew Luck, but he hasn’t played a defense like this one. Take the Jaguars to win and cover.
Baltimore Ravens (3-3) at Minnesota Vikings (4-2)
Line: Vikings by 5.5
Minnesota’s defense looked very good last week against a depleted Packers team, they should have no trouble against the Ravens. Take the Vikings to win and cover.
Line: Dolphins by 3
Miami knocked off the Falcons last week, and the momentum should carry over at home against the over achieving Jets. Take the Dolphins to win and cover.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3) at Buffalo Bills (3-2)
Buffalo will be well rested while the Bucs stay on the road after getting beat in Arizona. Go with the home team. Take the Bills to win and cover.
Carolina Panthers (4-2) at Chicago Bears (2-4)
Line: Panthers by 3
Mitchell Trubisky vs. Cam Newton > Puhleeze… Take the Panthers to win and cover.
New Orleans Saints (3-2) at Green Bay Packers (4-2)
Line: Saints by 5.5
Brett Hundley’s first NFL start will be tough in the dome. He’ll do OK, but not enough to win. Take the Saints to win but not cover.
Arizona Cardinals (3-3) vs. Los Angeles Rams (4-2)
Line: Rams by 3.5
The Rams have played well thus far, but I believe Arizona’s pass game will give them trouble. Take the Cardinals in an upset.
Cincinnati Bengals (2-3) at Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2)
Line: Steelers by 5.5
Le’Veon Bell lead Pittsburgh to a big win last week in KC, and will stop the Bengals two game winning streak but it will be close. Take the Steelers to win but not cover.
Dallas Cowboys (2-3) at San Francisco 49ers (0-6)
Line: Cowboys by 6
At last word Ezekeil Elliot is in. But that could change tomorrow. But against the 49ers they won’t need him anyway. Take the Cowboys to win and cover.
Seattle Seahawks (3-2) at New York Giants (1-5)
Line: Seahawks by 5.5
Seattle will be well rested and should be ready for this one despite their injuries on defense. Take the Seahawks to win but not cover.
Denver Broncos (3-2) at Los Angeles Chargers (2-4)
Line: Chargers by 1.5
The Chargers are rolling winning their last two, while the Broncos fell flat at home last week. Denver won’t regroup on the road. Take the Chargers to win and cover.
Atlanta Falcons (3-2) at New England Patriots (4-2)
Line: Patriots by 3.5
This Super Bowl rematch pits two dramatically different teams Sunday night, but this time the Patriots defense won’t be a difference maker. Take the Falcons in an upset.
Washington Redskins (3-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (5-1)
Line: Eagles by 4.5
Philly has already beat Washington on the road, and at home the result will be the same. Take the Eagles to win and cover
