I went 6-8 last week straight up, and a horrific 4-10 against the spread. That puts me at 51-40 for the season, and 37-51-3 against the spread. For a comparison, check out the "experts" over at ESPN.com.
Here are my picks for the NFL's Week Seven:
*Thursday, October 18*
Seattle 4-2 at San Francisco 4-2 - 8:20 p.m. [Line: SF by 7]
Two of the league's top defenses square off. The 49ers have a much better offense than the Seahawks, and they also have home field advantage. But don't expect a blowout.
-RJ's Pick: San Francisco by 3
*Sunday, October 21*
Tennessee 2-4 at Buffalo 3-3 - 1:00 p.m. [Line: Bills by 3.5]
The Titans have the worst point differential in the NFL. The Bills have the worst run defense in the league.
-RJ's Pick: Buffalo by 8
Washington 3-3 at New York Giants 4-2 - 1:00 p.m. [Line: NYG by 5.5]
The Redskins have the worst pass defense in the NFL. You want Eli Manning on your fantasy football team this week.
-RJ's Pick: New York Giants by 11
New Orleans 1-4 at Tampa Bay 2-3 - 1:00 p.m. [Line: NO by 2.5]
The Saints have the league's top passing offense. The Buccaneers have the NFL's second-worst pass defense. I am happy to settle for having Drew Brees on my fantasy football team this week.
-RJ's Pick: New Orleans by 7
Dallas 2-3 at Carolina 1-4 - 1:00 p.m. [Line: Cowboys by 2.5]
The Cowboys have the best pass defense in the NFL. The Panthers have lost three straight.
-RJ's Pick: Dallas by 9
Baltimore 5-1 at Houston 5-1 - 1:00 p.m. [Line: Texans by 7]
The Ravens are the hottest team in the AFC, having won four straight. But they lost both Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb to season-ending injuries last week. The Texans suffered their first loss of the season last week, allowing six touchdowns through the air. The winner of this one instantly becomes the favorite to secure home field advantage through the AFC playoffs.
-RJ's Pick: Houston by 3
Cleveland 1-5 at Indianapolis 2-3 - 1:00 p.m. [Line: Colts by 2.5]
