Smizzle vs. Vegas, The NFL Chalkboard: Week 7 NFL Picks ATS

Every week of this NFL season I’m going to make five picks against the spread to see how I do over the course of an entire season. This isn’t something I’ve ever done before. I’m not a handicapper or a sports bettor so I can’t even assure you that my results will be great so if you want to play the opposite side, feel free, I won’t be offended. To me it’s a fun exercise to see if my research for daily fantasy purposes can translate into success in the sports betting arena. I’ll write a short blurb for each game to explain my thinking and we’ll keep track of my accuracy as the season progresses.

Second straight winning week in week 6 where we went 4-1 and will try to stay on the winning side again this week though I’m sure I’ll go 1-4 to even things out and the sports betting gods will keep me humble.

Here are my five picks for Week 7.


Chargers -6.5 vs. Titans

Browns +3.5 at Buccaneers

Bills +7.5 vs. Colts

Rams -9.5 at 49ers

Falcons -4 vs. Giants


Week 1: 4-1

Week 2: 2-3

Week 3: 2-3

Week 4: 2-2-1

Week 5: 3-2

Week 6: 4-1

Season total: 17-12-1
