NFL Week 7 is done and dusted. Let's check out how all of our handicappers fared with their NFL picks.

Jason Lake

Four spread picks were in play for Jason this week and things went pretty darn well. He took Cincinnati (+2.5), Dallas (+2.5), Titans (+4), and Panthers (-7).

Two of the dogs cashed, with the Bengals squeaking out a win in Detroit and the Cowboys shutting down the Eagles in Philadelphia. Carolina smashed St. Louis at home, though a sweep wasn't in the cards thanks to a dud performance from Tennessee at home against San Francisco.

ATS Record: 18-15-1

Joe Freda

It was a mixed bag of results for Joe. He focused primarily on total plays, banking on the ‘Under’ 45.5 in the San Diego/Jacksonville game, the ‘Under’ 50 in the Chicago/Washington matchup, and the ‘Over’ 42 in the Tampa Bay/Atlanta battle. His one ATS NFL pick came on the Chiefs (-6) at home.

Joe went 1-1 with the ‘Unders’ and nailed the ‘Over’ play in the Falcons game. However, Kansas City couldn't come through for backers despite a straight up win.

ATS Record: 3-5-2

Joe Catalano

There was only one selection on the board for our other beloved Joe and it came in Green Bay's home date with Cleveland. He took the points with the visiting Browns, a popular sports pick given all of the injuries to the Packers' offense, but Green Bay was still able to win and cover.

ATS Record: 2-2

Steven Suarez

Fun week for me, can't lie there. I backed covers for Buffalo (+9.5), Pittsburgh (-1), and the New York Giants (-3.5) in Week 7.

The Bills were getting a ton of points and it was hard not to take them against an inconsistent Miami team. Meanwhile, the Steelers won on a field goal as time expired, while the Giants won a battle of two bad teams on Monday Night Football.

ATS Record: 5-3

Doug Upstone

The one play for Week 7 for Doug was on New England and things were looking really good there early.

However, after building a significant lead, the Patriots couldn't hold on. New York mustered a comeback and even went on to win straight up in overtime. Rex Ryan was understandably thrilled to get one up on his favorite man to hate, Bill Belichick.

ATS Record: 5-6

Steve Merrill

Steve was also on the Panthers and they ended up being one of the easiest winners of the week. Not only did St. Louis lose badly, but they also lost starting quarterback Sam Bradford for the season.

Coming in, Carolina was favored by at least a touchdown in the NFL odds, and that did scare away some potential backers. You definitely weren't disappointed if you did lay the chalk though, as Cam Newton was efficient as ever and the defense stepped up as well.

ATS Record: 3-1
