Week 7 NFL Spread Picks

Last Week ATS: 2-1

Season to Date: 7-10-1

Back to back weeks at 2-1. Things are starting to look up. If anyone tells you they knew how the NFL would look come week 7, they’re lying. This year has been exciting, shocking and completely unpredictable. Not just from a gambling perspective, but from a football perspective as well. The Jaguars covered easily as Denver predictably played down to their level of competition. Detroit took out the Browns in their rivalry game and the Redskins couldn’t hang with the Cowboys due to turnovers. I’m chalking them up as a team not to touch for a while.

These spreads are accurate as of 10:00 AM on 10/20/13 from www.sportsbook.com  and are likely to move by gametime. Half points do matter, so hit me up on Twitter if you want my opinion on a play after the line has moved.

Eagles -3

Nick Foles. This guy is playing like he wants to be a starting QB. And there’s plenty of talk that he will keep the job if he keeps it up. The Cowboys have 2 key players doubtful for the game. Romo has played great this year and Dez Bryant is a monster. I just don’t think their defense will be able to get a solid pass rush or keep up with the Eagles offense.

Chiefs -6.5

I live in Houston and I’d love for the hometown kid Case Keenum to have a great game, giving the Texans a well needed spark to their disappointing season. But, I’m a realist. Keenum has never played a snap in the NFL, has less than adequate arm strength and is coming into a dysfunctional environment. Oh yeah, and the undefeated Chiefs have the most electric defense in the league at the moment. Houston needs to make a statement today to turn their season around. The Chiefs at Arrowhead will prove to be quite the test. Go with the much better team.

Jaguars +7.5

I’m picking the Jags for the 2nd straight week. I’m not crazy, I swear. The Jags offense looks much better with Henne at the helm. It’s sad how much of an upgrade he is over Gabbert. San Diego has looked great this year, but they are playing an early game on the road. That west coast to east coast time change can really mess with players. Sure, the Chargers could win this game by double digits. But my FakePigskin Bold Prediction (#FakePigskinBP – tweet yours now) of the week was that the Jags would get their first win this week. And I’m sticking to it.
