Guru Predicts -- NFL Week 7

New, comment

I'll be heading out to the Browns/Broncos game in Cleveland in a couple hours, so unfortunately I won't be able to give description of each of the games this week, but don;t fret, I still have my picks for this week, and plan on another week of success  --

LAST WEEK - Straight 8-5


                    Spread  6-7


OVERALL - Straight 58-29(.666)


                Spread   39-48(.448)

San Diego -5.5 @ Kansas City - Give the points, the Chargers have way too much for a Chiefs team decimated by injuries


Chargers 31 - 16


Jacksonville @ Houston +9.5
- Too many point s to give for an enigmatic Jags team that might be without Byron Leftwich.  Texans always play Jags tough.


Jaguars 17 - 13


Carolina +3.5 @ Cincinnati
- Panthers still not getting any love, and after picking against them last week in balitmore, I've learned my lesson.  Panthers win outright.


Panthers 24 - 20


Detroit @ NY Jets -3.5
- Eric Mangini has the Jets playing hard, and the Lions just stink.  Give the points.


Jets 20-14


Green Bay +4.5 @ Miami
- Neither one of these team should ever be favored by 4.5 points.  Can we just not play this game and say that we did?  Dolphins win a squeaker, take the points.


Dolphins 21 - 20


New England -5.5 @ Buffalo
- The Bills have fallen apart again, and after a week off the Patriots are well rested and ready to dominate the AFC East.  Give the points.


Patriots 31 - 17


Philadelphia @ Tampa Bay +5.5
- Gotta love the way rookie Bruce Gradkowski is playing in Tampa.  This one is going to be close, though the Eagles pull it out.


Eagles 24 - 21


Pittsburgh -1.5 @ Atlanta
- My lock of the week.  Give the measly point, the Steelers are back.


Steelers 28 - 13


Denver -5.5 @ Cleveland
- Broncos haven't done well against the number this season, unless you take the under.  I like that to change this week, though it will be a fight.


Broncos 24 - 13


Arizona @ Oakland +3.5
- Arizona can respond twi different ways to the Monday Night collapse, I think they come out fighting...


Cardnials 17 - 14


Minnesota @ Seattle -6.5
- A lot of people think this game is going to be close, I'm not one of them.  Seahawks are awesome at home.


Seahawks 27 - 14


Washington +9.5 @ Indianapolis
- On the other hand, with the way the Redskins can run, and the Colts inability to stop it, I think this game could be closer than originally thought, though the Colts still win.


Colts 27 - 23


NY Giants +3.5 @ Dallas - A classic Monday Night affair that should go down to the last minute.  I like the hometeam in those situations, and Vanderjagt is a pretty good kicker.  Take the points, but the 'Boys win.


Cowboys 30 - 27
