Welcome to a weekly installment of NFL picks.
Feel free to keep track of your predictions and see if you can beat the author.
Straight-up Record: 76-28-1
ATS Record: 58-44-3
Week 7 Byes: Arizona Cardinals, Washington Football Team, Jacksonville Jaguars, Houston Texans
Thursday Night Football:
Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers (-1.5)
Panthers 24, Falcons 21
The Panthers are better on both sides of the ball, and they will not need a comeback to complete their season sweep of the Falcons.
New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills (-4)
Bills 28, Patriots 21
Neither defense has played particularly well this season, but the Patriots are reeling from back-to-back bad losses. Expect the Bills to send the Patriots to 2-5.
Tennessee Titans at Cincinnati Bengals (+5.5)
Titans 34, Bengals 30
The Titans often win without covering the spread. The Bengals often lose while covering the spread. This is a potential bettor paradise.
Las Vegas Raiders at Cleveland Browns (-2.5)
Raiders 31, Browns 24
The Raiders are talented enough offensively to knock off the Browns.
Indianapolis Colts at Detroit Lions (+3)
Lions 24, Colts 21 F/OT
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers (-7)
Packers 38, Vikings 3
Slam your life savings on this game. The Vikings needed a miracle to keep their first matchup within 10 points. This will be a blowout of epic proportions.
New York Jets at Kansas City Chiefs (-19.5)
Chiefs 24, Jets 3
Is it a hot take to say this game will not be the largest blowout of Week 8?
Los Angeles Rams at Miami Dolphins (+3.5)
Dolphins 23, Rams 17
In the upset special of the week, Brian Flores will call a masterful defensive gameplan, and Tua Tagovailoa will win his first NFL start.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens (-4)
Steelers 31, Ravens 24
It’s a shame that this game is in the early window.
Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos (+3)
Chargers 31, Broncos 13
The Broncos will be senseless beaten to a pulp with Justin Herbert’s relentless 60-yard touchdowns.
New Orleans Saints at Chicago Bears (+4.5)
Saints 24, Bears 12
Saints fans will be able to laugh at Buccaneers fans as Drew Brees will remember how many downs there are. New Orleans will finally get a strong defensive showing.
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks (-3)
49ers 24, Seahawks 21 F/OT
Seattle cannot have an easy victory, and the 49ers will take the victory in overtime.
Sunday Night Football:
Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (-9)
Eagles 38, Cowboys 10
Why. Is. This. Still. In. The. Prime. Time. Window. NFL, you should be ashamed of yourself.
Monday Night Football:
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Giants (+11.5)
Buccaneers 35, Giants 13
With Chiefs-Buccaneers quickly approaching, the Buccaneers will throw their hat into the ring as the NFL’s team with a slaughter of the Giants.
