NFL 2010: Week 7 Picks

Cincinnati Bengals (+3.5) at Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons will want to rebound after getting plastered by the Eagles last week. But the Bengals will keep it close and also watch out for Carson Palmer to take his chances down field.
Outright Win: Falcons
v/s the Spread: Bengals (+3.5)

Washington Redskins (+3) at Chicago Bears
The Bears will want to take advantage of the weak Redskins defense, but the question is if the Bears O line give enough protection for Jay Cutler?
Outright Win: Bears
v/s the Spread: Redskins (+3)

Philadelphia Eagles (+3) at Tennessee Titans
The Eagles have Kolb starting at QB, while the Titans will most likely start Kerry Collins. If the Eagles can handle Chris Johnson, they are golden. But can they really do that?
Outright Win: Titans
v/s the Spread: Titans (-3)

Jacksonville Jaguars (+5.5) at Kansas City Chiefs
The Jaguars have no offense unless MJD runs amok. And I do not see that happen the Chiefs stout defense. And Matt Casel might just complete enough passes against that weak Jaguars pass defense to cover the spread
Outright Win: Chiefs
v/s the Spread: Chiefs (-5.5)

Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) at Miami Dolphins
The Steelers will want to prove on defense that they can be as formidable as before without using their helmets as weapons. And the Dolphins are weird in the sense that they not as strong at home as they are on the road.
Outright Win: Steelers
v/s the Spread: Steelers (-3)

Cleveland Browns (+13) at New Orleans Saints
Colt McCoy did not have a shabby game for his first one as a rookie. And that was against the vaunted Steelers defense. This week might be a tad easier than last, but the Saints will score a bunch too.
Outright Win: Saints
v/s the Spread: Browns (+13)

San Francisco 49ers (-3) at Carolina Panthers
The 49ers had their first win of the season. And how lucky are they that they have the Panthers coming up next.
Outright Win: 49ers  
v/s the Spread: 49ers (-3)

Buffalo Bills (+13) at Baltimore Ravens
Ravens will be the lock of the week for a suicide pool. The Bills will score some garbage points at the end and cover the spread.
Outright Win: Ravens 
v/s the Spread: Bills (+13)

Arizona Cardinals (+5.5) at Seattle Seahawks
Max Hall might shoot for maybe a 100 yards this week. The Seahawks should be able to make use of their evidently strong home field advantage.
Outright Win: Seahawks
v/s the Spread: Seahawks (-5.5)

New England Patriots (+3) at San Diego Chargers
The Patriots have had a hard time winning in San Diego, but they are catching the banged up Chargers at the right time.
Outright Win: Patriots
v/s the Spread: Patriots (-3)

Oakland Raiders (+8.5) at Denver Broncos
The Broncos will have no problem with their passing offense against the Raiders Defense. But, can they hold off the Raiders running game? The Broncos Defense ranks amongst the bottom teams of the league.
Outright Win: Broncos
v/s the Spread: Broncos (-8.5)

New York Giants (+3) at Dallas Cowboys
Every week seems to have a must-win game for the Cowboys, and they just keep falling backward each week. Not anymore.
Outright Win: Cowboys
v/s the Spread: Cowboys (-3)

Upset Special of the Week

St Louis Rams (+3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Rams will really like to win on the road to prove to the world what they already believe themselves; that they are for real.
Outright Win:  Rams
v/s the Spread: Rams (+3)

Homer Pick of the Week

Minnesota Vikings (+2.5) at Green Bay Packers
The Packers are getting Al Harris and Atari Bigby (might play) back this week to shore up their ailing defense. Still, a lot will hinge on if Clay Mathews can play. The Packers Defensive Line struggles without him in both the pass rush department and run defense. The side story: Favre returns to Lambeau.
Outright Win: Packers
v/s the Spread: Packers (-2.5)

Last Week:
Outright Win Record: 8-6
v/s the Spread Record: 7-5-1

Year to Date:
Outright Win Record: 52-38
v/s the Spread Record: 40-45-4
