Week 7 of the NFL is upon us and we can only hope it lives up to the hype of week 6. There are a number of stat and data-based tools to helps us untangle every match-up; who to choose and who to avoid. Last week he was 1-2 with a 1-1-1 previous week; our go-to guy to get the picks is RJ Bell (@RJinVegas on Twitter).
Underdog Special: Miami Dolphins +3 hosting Buffalo Bills
RJ really likes this game and thinks the bills are one of the most overrated teams in the NFL. The mainstream are looking at wins and loses and saying they’re on a good win streak, Vegas says they’re an average team. The underdog special for this week is Miami over Bills.
Best Bet: Tennessee Titans -3 hosting Indianapolis Colts
Bean says Tennessee is terrible, RJ disagrees. Andrew Luck is a different, lesser quarterback on the road so he’s at a disadvantage this week (24-9 at home / 16-18 record on the road). Tennessee likes to play physical and run the ball a lot. After all the traveling that Colts have done in the past 4 weeks, playing a big physical team isn’t going to be fun. The Best Bet, Tennessee -3 over Colts.
Big Game Special: Arizona Cardinals -2 hosting Seattle Seahawks
This week’s Big Game Special: Kevin’s Arizona Cardinals vs. Bean’s Seattle Seahawks. Arizona is only 1 of 5 teams that Vegas considers to have a home field advantage. It’s very loud inside their stadium so that will help the pass rush this week. The only way you can really win in the NFL against a good team is running the ball effectively and this will work against Seattle tremendously. Despite their good record, They struggle playing away from home. RJ likes Arizona over Seattle.
