The NFL has been brutal this year for betting purposes. But I’m stupid so I’m going to keep going with these picks.

Miami Dolphins at Baltimore Ravens (-2.5)

I’d stay away from this game as both of these teams are some of the worst tackling defenses in the NFL. If Matt Moore is starting, I do expect more offensive production from the Dolphins. The Ravens need to start looking at possible alternatives for Joe Flacco.

Minnesota Vikings at Cleveland Browns (+7.5)

Unfortunately the Brits get this game. That’s what they get for Brexit.

San Francisco 49ers at Philadelphia Eagles (-10.5)

This is a bounce back week for the 49ers. They won’t win, but they’ll make it close. Carson Wentz has to be the front runner for MVP.

Los Angeles Chargers at New England Patriots (-6.5)

Despite last week’s impressive performance against the Falcons, I don’t think the Patriots have figured out all of their defensive issues. The Chargers’ offense is weird and scores in bunches.

Oakland Raiders at Buffalo Bills (-3)

The Bills are actually a pretty good team, and it feels weird saying that considering it’s Week 8. I don’t trust the Raiders yet.

Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-2)

The loser of this game is out of the playoff race in my opinion. I think Carolina is a better team – I’m not sure what Tampa Bay is to be honest.

Atlanta Falcons at New York Jets (+7)

So much for the Falcons getting the ball to Julio Jones. How has Steve Sarkisian not getting any slack? If his name were Steve Jones, he would have been fired by now. The bottom is about to fall out for the Jets.

Indianapolis Colts at Cincinnati Bengals (-10)

This is a huge spread for the Bengals, but Chuck Pagano is a joke. The plan for the Colts should be to lose the rest of their games, dispatch Pagano and the entire staff in the offseason, and draft a true #1 receiver for Andrew Luck when he comes back.

Chicago Bears at New Orleans Saints (-7.5)

The Bears are better than anyone thought. I’m not sold on the Saints’ defense yet, and I think the Bears will stick to their strategy of running the ball and limiting Mitch Trubisky’s passes.

Houston Texans at Seattle Seahawks (-4.5)

I have no idea how this game is going to go down, so I would stay away from it. But my gut feeling says the Seahawks win 23-13.

Dallas Cowboys at Washington Redskins (-1.5)

It was overreaction week as the Cowboys beat the crap out of the 49ers and the Redskins got destroyed by the Wentz wagon. Take the Redskins – this is a must win game.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Detroit Lions (+3)

Matthew Stafford’s health is still in question – I think Pittsburgh pulls out the win.

Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (-7)

I don’t think the Chiefs are going to lose three games in a row and while I do think the Broncos’ offense changes course from the last two weeks, the Chiefs are still a much better team.

Week 7 Record: 5-9-1
Season to Date: 46-58-2
