This post shares five picks against the spread for Week 7 of the 2022 NFL Season in a Super Contest format. Players receive one point for being correct, a half point for tying, and zero points for being incorrect.
2022 Super Contest
Season To Date – 19-11
Baltimore -6.5 (at home v. Cleveland)
This is a bet Lamar Jackson scores 45 fantasy points. Cleveland ranks in the bottom ten against the run giving up 131.5 yards per game improving against in their Week 6 shellacking at the hands of the New Englands Patriots where a rookie quarterback threw for 309 yards with two touchdowns and was only sacked twice. My cat, in essence, is buying Baltimore low after their loss in Week 6 to the New York football Giants seeing Baltimore blow a ten point fourth quarter lead with a horrible interception allowing the Giants to win.
Detroit +7 (at Dallas)
Somehow, my cat contends, the return of Dak Prescott, perhaps too early, creates the opportunity for Detroit to win outright in Dallas coming off a bye. Detroit is subject to recency bias after being shutout in New England 29-0 in Week 5. Prior, in the first four weeks of the season, Detroit was the top scoring offense in the NFL coupled with the worst defense and dealing with injuries to key play makers like D’Andre Swift and Amon-Ra St. Brown. St. Brown is off the injury report this week and Swift is listed as questionable.
Tennessee -2.5 (at home v. Indianapolis)
Las Vegas -7 (at home v. Houston)
New York Jets +3.5 (at Denver)
Nobody in West Gate is getting the Jets +3.5 as this line was purchased prior to the Jets winning outright in Green Bay 27-10 in Week 6. New York +3 was a possibility and we’ll call this a push if the Jets lose by a field goal for publication purposes yet enjoy cashing our ticket because this line currently sits at New York -1.5 creating five points of value in this spread.
