NFL Against the Spread Winners For Week 7
With the month of July already underway and the 2016 NFL training camps set to begin barely 10 days from now, the stage couldn’t be set any better for us to take a reviewed look at the point spreads. We don’t have a lock for all the best NFL picks in Week 7, but the following teams should be able to offer some solid 2016 winners against the spread.
Indianapolis Colts (-3.5) at Tennessee Titans
Week 7 NFL ATS Pick: Colts (-3.5)
While there is a lot of potential value in Tennessee’s offseason investments, especially in their freakish offensive running game, it is really hard to pick against an Indy team that is impressively 14-1 in its last 15 overall games against the Titans, including a stellar 9-0 record in the last 9 straight meetings and a 6-1 record in the last seven trips to Tennessee. The 3-point spread in this game should thus be cheap fodder for Andrew Luck and his Indianapolis Colts, especially after Indy swept Tennessee last year despite playing most of the season with an injury-bugged squad.
Oakland Raiders at Jacksonville Jaguars (PK)
Week 7 NFL ATS Pick: Raiders (PK)
There hasn’t been much to separate the Raiders and the Jaguars over the past couple of seasons, with both teams owning decent offensive units and questionable defenses. But in the course of this offseason, Oakland has made relatively better changes on both sides of the ball, which should give them some slight edge in this game. Therefore, even with Blake Bortles and Jacksonville playing at home, we believe the online betting value in this game will be with Derek Carr and the Raiders who are in fact 2-0 in their last two straight meetings against Jacksonville.
Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals (-11.5)
Week 7 NFL ATS Pick: Bengals (-11.5)
The Bengals have beaten the Browns by margins of 34 points, 21 points and 30 points in the last three straight meetings, underlining their overwhelming dominance over Cleveland. Having Robert Griffin III in this game will probably allow Cleveland to reduce the damage and keep the scores relatively close, but in the end, Cincinnati’s well-established formula of dominating the Browns should continue as the Bengals blitz past the reconstructing Cleveland team in another emphatic win.
Baltimore Ravens at New York Jets (-4)
Week 7 NFL ATS Pick: Baltimore (+4)
Okay, I agree that the Ravens played like a bunch of sissies last year while the Jets were amongst the most improved teams in the league. Granted, the Ravens have dominated this series and we believe that the history will hold true if Joe Flacco and his teammates can return to their solid footballing ways. With an immaculate 8-0 record since dropping their first meeting against the Jets in 1997, you’d be a fool not to consider the Ravens for the ATS here. Not to mention, NY could be due for some regression due to their tumultuous offseason, making them less competitive and opening a chance for Baltimore to even come out of New York with an outright SU upset.
