Mac’s Machinations: NFL Week 7 Picks

Last week I went 4-10 ATS and 8-6 Straight Up. Not good. Defenses are starting to adjust and some teams are falling back down to Earth. Not going to complain but just jump right back in.

Sunday, October 25 1pm EST Games

Lions at Falcons: Line: Falcons -2.5 O/U: 54.5

Neither team can play pass defense so jump on the over. I’ll ATL at home to cover easily.

Atlanta 38, Detroit 24

Browns at Bengals: Line: Browns -3 O/U: 50.5

Another great game to take the over on. Both offenses can rack up yards and points in bunches. Cleveland does play better defense so it should be just enough to cover the spread.

Cleveland 31, Cincinnati 24

Steelers at Titans Line: Titans -1.5 O/U: 51

Pittsburgh spanked the Browns last week and I feel that the Titans are due for a brush with reality. Big Ben has a big game and the Pitt D slows down Derek Henry. This smells of an under game.

Pittsburgh 24, Tennesse 14

Panthers at Saints Line: Saints -7 O/U: 50.5

This is a classic game where the Saints should win big but won’t, especially after the Panthers lost to the Bears. I’m taking the over and the Panthers plus 7.

New Orleans 28, Carolina 24

Bills at Jets Line: Bills -10 O/U: 46

Bills are pissed off after losing two in a row and the Jets are an embarrassment to all sporting teams. Don’t think about this one take the Bills and the -10.

Buffalo 42, NY Jets 10

Cowboys at Washington Football Team Line: Cowboys -1 O/U: 44.5

What a tossup. I’ll go with Washington barely. Don’t bet on this game.

Washington 24, Dallas 17

Packers at Texans Line: Packers -3.5 O/U: 57

The bet of the week. Packers are pissed off and the Texans are coached by Romeo. Packers big.

Packers 35, Texans 13

Sunday, October 25, 3:05 EST Buccaneers at Raiders: Line: Bucs -4 O/U: 52

Who knows what Raiders team shows up, if at all. Either way I’m taking Tom and co. to shut down the Raiders. The Bucs defense is steadily improving each week.

Bucs 31, Raiders 20

Sunday, October 25, 3:25 EST Chiefs at Broncos: Line Chiefs -8 O/U: 45

Snow or no snow, I like the Chiefs and the over in this game. Welcome to the party, Le’veon Bell.

Chiefs 38, Broncos 20

Sunday, October 25, 3:25 EST 49ers at Patriots Line: -2.5 O/U: 44

The Patriots laid a huge egg last week. The 49ers got a much needed win over the Rams. I don’t see Belichick losing 2 in a row at home. Patriots eek out a win.

Patriots 24, 49ers 21

Jaguars at Chargers Line: -7.5 O/U: 49

I think this game will be close. Both the Jags and the Chargers are bipolar. You never know who shows up. I’ll take the Jags plus 7.5.

Chargers 28, Jaguars 24

Sunday Night

Seahawks at Cardinals Line: Seahawks -3.5 O/U: 55

I’m going back to the old girlfriend one more time. Cards will snap the Mina Kimes Seahawks undefeated streak.

Cardinals 27, Seahawks 20

Monday Night

Bears at Rams Line: Rams -6.5 O/U: 45.5

Talk about a battle of bipolar teams. I think the Rams rebound off the 49er loss and win big.

Rams 37, Bears 21

Bet of the week: Packers -3.5

Parlay of the week: Packers, Chiefs

Teaser +6 points of the week: Browns, Steelers, Bills, Chargers, Buccaneers, Cardinals

Overall Record: ATS: 40-49-1 Straight Up: 54-35-1
