Let's focus our attention on what the NFL odds makers are hanging for Week 7 of the NFL season & get out in front it to pick off the best lines before it is too late.

Seahawks vs. 49’ers (+6 ½)
Let’s not forget that the Seattle Seahawks are a 2-4 team with a defense that has morphed from feared to scared. While I will grant you their four losses were all against tough opponents their two wins were over a struggling Chicago squad and a three point victory over a lackluster Lions’ team…at home no less! The 49’ers got their second victory of the season last week and me thinks they’re pumped up enough to hang with an overrated Seattle team.
NFL Pick: 49ers +6 ½ at Bookmaker

Bills vs. Jaguars (+6)
The Bills are more banged up than JJ Gold at a $1.99 buffet. Yes, they have plenty of injuries with Tyrod Taylor, Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin and even starting right tackle Seantrel Henderson all questionable to start. The Jags on the other hand have a quarterback in Blake Bortles who just may be getting his groove on with seven TD passes over the last two games.
NFL Pick: Jaguars +6

Browns vs. Rams (-5 ½)
The Rams have recently played two NFC powerhouses tough with a stunning home victory over the Cardinals and a gritty but losing effort in Green Bay. In addition they have one of the most electrifying young tailbacks in Todd Gurley who should shred the 32nd (allowing 149.8 RYG) ranked Browns defense especially since he has had two weeks to rest.
NFL Pick: Rams -5 ½ at WillHill

Steelers (-2) vs Chiefs
Arrowhead Stadium is no longer the Thunderdome of the NFL. The Chiefs stink while the Steelers looked downright reborn under the backup’s backup Landry Jones. Jones looks to be the man under center until Big Ben gets back in the saddle which should be more than enough to scalp the Chiefs.
NFL Pick: Steelers -2

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837087, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Texans vs. Dolphins (-4)
Fire a head coach, replace him with a guy that looks like a drill sergeant and voila, the Miami Dolphins look exactly like the team everyone thought they would be before the season began. That being said this line looks too high as the Dolphins have a Thursday night meeting with the Patriots after this one is over and the Texans are coming off a convincing victory with Brian Hoyer settling in to be the guy in Houston.
NFL Pick: Texans +4 at Bovada

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837090, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Jets (+9) vs. Patriots
Even when the Jets are lousy they play the Patriots tough. Now that they are 4-1 and nipping at the heels of New England we can easily see this reborn, retooled Jets’ defense keeping this one within shouting distance.
NFL Pick: Jets +9

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837088, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Vikings (-2 ½) vs. Lions
The NFL odds makers are hanging a tempting line on the visiting favorites which will undoubtedly lead to many including Minnesota in their NFL picks this weekend. Count me in as one of the Great Unwashed Masses.
NFL Pick: Vikings -2 ½

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837085, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Falcons (-3 ½) vs. Titans
Okay so the Falcons play one lousy game last week and lose to the Saints on the road while the Titans get blown at home by the Dolphins. Atlanta clocks in with a record of 5-1 straight up (4-2 ATS) while the Titans are mired in the muck at 1-4 (2-3 ATS) so what exactly am I missing? Nothing.
NFL Pick: Falcons -3 ½ at TheGreek

Bucs +3 ½ vs. Redskins
Tampa Bay is coming off an impressive offensive showing putting up 38 points against Jacksonville while the Redskins got handled by the Jets last week. Bucs have had two weeks to prepare and face a pedestrian defense and an inept offense. Grab the points here.
NFL Pick: Bucs +3 ½ at BetOnline

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837016, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Saints vs. Indianapolis (-4 ½)
The Colts will want to make up for that goofy gaffe against the Patriots on Sunday night and they have the right team in front of them to do it. New Orleans shocked the Falcons in a divisional matchup last week but that means they will be flat for Sunday.
 NFL Pick: Colts -4 ½ 

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837089, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Raiders vs. Chargers (-4)
Let’s not overthink this one kids. The Chargers have the most prolific passing attack in the league while the Raiders rank 30th defending it. EZ-PZ-Lemon-Squeazy.
NFL Pick: Chargers -4 at Heritage

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837091, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Cowboys vs. Giants (-3 ½)
Yes the Cowboys have had two weeks to prepare but Old Man Coughlin must be seething after the Giants melted down in all facets of the game last week in Philly. You may not like Eli Manning but he is a legitimate NFL quarterback with a pair of Super Bowl rings while Matt Cassel is just learning the playbook after taking over for Brandon Weeden.
NFL Pick: Giants -3 ½ 

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837092, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Eagles (+3 ½) vs. Panthers
As of this writing the only offshore book dealing the Eagles at +3 ½ is while the rest are offering NFL odds of Philadelphia +3. Chip Kelly seems like he is finally getting through to his team and Sam Bradford should be primed to derail the Panthers. Carolina is improved this season but it’s time for a market correction. .
NFL Pick: Eagles +3 ½ at Pinnacle

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837093, "sportsbooksIds":[1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":1, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Ravens vs. Cardinals (-8)
The Cardinals looked terrible in their 25-13 road loss to the Steelers last week but the Ravens have looked terrible all year long. Look for the Redbirds to beat up the weak kid on the block.
NFL Pick: Arizona -8
