I am the Gridiron Great, and I have been handicapping the NFL for a number of years. I've learned the ins and outs of what it takes to beat the bookies at this game, and I know just how difficult it can be. Do you think you can beat me at my own game? Every week that you do, you'll be entered into a grand prize drawing at the end of the season for a $1,000 Oddsmaker Sportsbook account. Even if you don't beat me though, you can still collect a $100 account from Oddsmaker just by having the most picks correct amongst Cappers Info readers.
There is no greater time to try to get into this competition than right now, as every week you beat me gives you another opportunity at that big cash prize at the end of the year. Let's get started right now with my Week 7 picks…
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Miami Dolphins (+3) – The Steelers are about to get their first serious test with QB Ben Roethlisberger under center. We don't love his chances, either. The Dolphins have yet to win a home game this year (of course, they haven't lost a road game either), and that's something that badly has to change for them to make it to the second season. In this same fixture last year to end the season, Pittsburgh march into South Beach and took down Miami to eliminate the Fins from the playoffs. I'll take my chances that HC Tony Sparano's boys can keep this one on the right side of the number. I'm riding Miami +3
Cincinnati Bengals (+3.5) @ Atlanta Falcons – Does a line ever just look a tad fishy to you? Seems to me like Atlanta should be favored by at least a touchdown… Hmm… Just like a feels like Nebraska should've been favored by 17 over Texas and Texas should've been favored by three TDs over UCLA… Rule No. 1 in NFL betting: If it looks like a fish and it smells like a fish, it's probably fishy. Cincinnati +3.5
Kansas City Chiefs (OTB) @ Jacksonville Jaguars – This game will not be included in the competition in Week 7!!! Sorry folks… Same deal as last week when we didn't know whether QB Aaron Rodgers was playing for the Green Bay Packers or not. QB David Garrard is still up in the air. Regardless, as long as they're not laying a ton of points, I think that the Chiefs are bouncing back and taking care of Jacksonville after that horrifying loss to the Houston Texans in which they really got hosed.
Philadelphia Eagles @ Tennessee Titans (-3) – It'd be a lot of fun to see QB Vince Young and QB Michael Vick take the field together, but we might not get to see it happen, unfortunately. The Titans are just playing tremendously well right now, and the rush defense for the Eagles can be had. If it is, RB Chris Johnson will rush for 100+ yards, and when he does that, Tennessee is 4-0 SU and ATS. I'll take my chances. I'll back Tennessee -3.
Washington Redskins (+2.5) @ Chicago Bears -Right now, I really have a tough time backing the Bears. They have no running game. They have a quarterback that is losing confidence with every single throw that he makes. This seems like a franchise that is just covered in gasoline right now, and it's only going to take lighting one match to set the whole thing on fire once and for all. This team is leading its division, but it sure doesn't feel like it. Washington, this is your chance to shine! QB Donovan McNabb is coming home, and he's going to leave a winner. Washington +2.5 for me.
Cleveland Browns (+13.5) @ New Orleans Saints – Is it just me, or did QB Colt McCoy actually look pretty decent against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week? McCoy certainly has this job for as long as he wants it as long as that performance wasn't just an anomaly. He's got the second game in a Murderer's Row lineup, as now he has to take on the defending champs. Unfortunately for the men from the Bayou, they've already almost lost a game like this to a rookie quarterback once already, and though they'll figure out how to pull out the outright 'W', I love the grit and tenacity of this Cleveland team right now. Until they really burn me, I'll go with the Browns +13.5.
Buffalo Bills @ Baltimore Ravens (-13) – Is this the first quarter line, or the game line? What? The game line? You sure? Let me get this straight. You really think that Ryan Freaking Fitzpatrick is going to go on the road in one of the most hostile territories in the NFL against one of the league's most ferocious defenses and find a way to stick within two touchdowns in 60 minutes? You've got to be kidding, right? Yawn. Baltimore -13
San Francisco 49ers (-3) @ Carolina Panthers – Batten down the hatches. QB Matt Moore is back. The Niners have finally broken their maiden this year, and in spite of the fact that they were just 0-5 last week at this time, they're still amongst the favorites to win the NFC West. That tells you just how bad this division is. Carolina would fit in perfectly. The Panthers had better be careful, as this might be the last chance at a win for awhile. They won't get it on Sunday, because I'm going with San Fran -3.
St. Louis Rams (+2.5) @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Man, someone dial up the respect card for the Rams and quickly! In fairness, St. Louis was absolutely reamed by the Detroit Lions a couple weeks ago on the road, but this is a game in which it can really bounce back in a big way. The Rams are good enough to beat anyone in the NFL; they demonstrated that last week against the San Diego Chargers. The Bucs are getting better, but they aren't quite there yet. This is another team that is just waiting to implode. St. Louis is almost there, and with one more win, it can really legitimately be in the NFC West race. St. Louis +2.5 for yours truly.
Arizona Cardinals (+6) @ Seattle Seahawks – Here's your trap game of the weekend. The Cardinals are coming off of a bye, and it has long since been forgotten that they beat the defending champs two weeks ago. Everyone still just sees the name QB Max Hall in the starting lineup and cringes. Meanwhile, the Seahawks apparently can play on the road now, as they beat the Chicago Bears in the Windy City. Impressed? I'm not. Is Arizona winning this game outright? Maybe. Is it covering the near full TD? You betcha. Loving Arizona +6.
New England Patriots @ San Diego Chargers (-2.5) – Can someone please wake up the San Diego Chargers and remind them that it's time to get the season started? This is about where they were last year, as they were 3-3 and three back of the Denver Broncos when they hit the gas pedal and never looked back. The schedule is very, very difficult from here on in though, and if the Kansas City Chiefs can string some 'W's together, it's going to make for a hard task. HC Norv Turner knows his job is on the line. I tend to believe that the Bolts will beat this spread, thus I'll take San Diego -2.5.
Oakland Raiders (+8) @ Denver Broncos – Is it just me, or am I backing the Raiders seemingly every single week at this point? I don't know why I'm so enamored with this team, as this has been an underachieving bunch for years and years. The only hope here is that the corners for the silver and black, the only solid part of this team, can lock down those receivers and make QB Kyle Orton make some throws he doesn't want to make. What the hell… Oakland +8.
Minnesota Vikings (+2.5) @ Green Bay Packers – Remember to make your tiebreaker picks in this game!!! QB Brett Favre is back, bum shoulder and all. It feels like it's been awhile since good ol' No. 4 was playing under the bright lights of primetime football, and his last appearance there was a total dud against the New Orleans Saints. However, there's something about Lambeau Field that just brings some magic out. Am I the only one that sees this game ending with Favre hitting a Hail Mary to WR Randy Moss in the end zone when Moss jumps over four different defenders, sticks two middle fingers in the air, proclaims, "I'm Randy Moss and I am so much better than all four of you combined!" and THEN comes down with the football for the game winning score? Just sayin'… Minnesota +2.5
