Pigskin Picks NFL Week 7
A groove has been found in the Pigskin Picks NFL write-ups . 2-1 this past week. 5-1 in for the past 2 weeks. Now that I say that, it’s going to be an 0-3 weekend because the betting gods dislike any sort of brag. Is that even a brag? Can’t be! As always Pigskin Picks is brought to you by Parx Casino and Sportsbook – this is how you win – must be 21 – gambling problem call 1-800-gambler.
Last Week’s Record: 2-1. Overall Record: 10-8
Steelers @ Rams LAR -3
Matt Stafford is playing almost like old Matt Stafford, the Kupp/Nacua combo on the outside has given him options and the Steelers is bottom of the leauge. The Rams D is playing well, and I still don’t trust Kenny Picket. Give me Stafford and the Rams because as we know Nacua means “no worries” (thank you Matthew Berry). Also I’d like a big game from Puka for my fantasy team’s sake. I’ll take the Rams at home to cover the 3.
PICK – Rams
Lions @ Ravens DET – 3
Dan Campbell has these Lions playing great football. They’re a good team anyway, but I’d run through a wall after a Dan Campbell pep talk. Problem is they’re a bit banged up in the backfield so they may need to rely on Jared Goff’s arm. Goff at home vs Goff on the road are completely different QBs. What doesn’t help here is that he’s facing the Ravens defense. It’s not the early 2000s Ravens D, but it’s still a passing defense that’s held opposing QBs in check. Ravens cover at home.
PICK – Ravens
Dolphins @ Eagles PHI -2.5
Kelly green is back for the first time this year! The over/under for this game is 51.5. These offenses scream take the over, which means we’re in for a 14-10 game. This game should be an outstanding watch on Sunday night. The dolphins offense can still fly, but the Eagles rushing D is tops in the league. They should have Jalen Carter, an absolute game wrecker, back in the middle of that defensive line. I read somewhere if there is one place Miami struggles, it’s the rush up the middle. So as an Eagles fan I’m going with that! Jalen Carter and the defensive line has a big game. It’s still going to be high scoring and close. I love Jalen to bounce back from the Jets loss last week. Birds win a tight one at home in an absolutely insane building, but Miami covers the 2.5.
PICK – Miami
Go Birds! Go Phils!
