Week Seven Previews Part One
Sunday, October 21
Tennessee @ Los Angeles
Tennessee has been terrible lately. They’ve scored a combined 13 points in two games against Buffalo and Baltimore, and despite having to travel across the country to play the Chargers, 6.5 points is too much for me to trust Los Angeles with.
Line: Los Angeles Chargers -6.5
New England @ Chicago
Monday night was a huge win for Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Meanwhile, Chicago lost a very winnable game against Miami. I do think Chicago will put up a good fight, but New England is doing what New England always does. They start off slow before winning almost every game from here on out. Sunday will be no different, and they’ll do it by more than three.
Line: Chicago +3
Pick: New England
Buffalo @ Indianapolis
As we said last week, Buffalo realizes they cannot win through the air especially now that Josh Allen is out this week. The last two weeks they have averaged 33 minutes time of possession. They will continue to run the ball so if nothing else, they will keep this game closer than a touchdown.
Line: Indianapolis -7.5
Detroit @ Miami
Don’t be fooled by Brock Osweiler. He does good in his first starts with a team. Just look at his first start with Denver or Houston. They looked good, and then he followed it up by falling back to earth. It will happen Sunday and Detroit will take advantage.
Minnesota @ New York
I’m surprised with how Minnesota’s season has gone thus far as they sit at 3-2-1. The Jets, on the other hand are somehow 3-3. They’ve played well at home winning two games and losing a close one to Miami. This is a risky pick, but I am taking New York to cover.
Line: New York Jets +3
Pick: New York Jets
