Super Computer Week 7 Contest Picks

The OddsShark Super Computer bounced back after its worst week of the season to post a respectable 3-2 record in Week 6. Though notching a record above .500 so far this season, the Super Computer sits firmly in the middle of the Team OddsShark standings. 

Jaguars +5.5 vs. the Bills in London

The Buffalo Bills are coming into this game with more injuries than you can count. The offense will be without Tyrod Taylor, Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin, Karlos Williams and Seantrel Henderson. The defense will also be without stalwart defensive lineman Kyle Williams.

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has thrown for 932 yards with eight touchdowns and four interceptions over the past three weeks. The Jags defense has struggled but will be facing a Bills offense with a lot of starters missing.

Jets +9 at Patriots

Yes, the New England Patriots have been remarkably good offensively this season, but their defense has been spotty. The Pats defense is allowing 4.9 yards per carry and 114.6 rushing yards per game, which are both solidly in the bottom third of the NFL.

The Jets are coming into this game with one of the more underrated running backs carrying the load offensively. Chris Ivory has rushed for 312 yards and two touchdowns in his past two games. The Jets will look to keep the Patriots offense off the field and Ivory may be the key to keeping this game low scoring and tight.

Dolphins -4 at Home to Texans 

Looking to build off the momentum of last week’s 38-10 beatdown of the Titans, Miami welcomes the 2-4 Texans to town in what will be the second game of the Dan Campbell era. Miami looked like a completely different team under their new head coach, scoring their most points in a game this season. Their defense also woke up, by registering six sacks, and two interceptions. The Phins are looking for their first home win of the season, while the Texans are 0-2 on the road, allowing an average of 36 points in those games.

Panthers -3 at Home to Eagles

The Carolina Panthers have raised a lot of eyebrows so far and have become a profitable team to bet, sitting at 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS through their opening five games. Carolina hosts Philadelphia in Week 7, a team whose quarterback isn’t inspiring a lot of faith in the betting public.

Sam Bradford has tossed nine interceptions this season which doesn’t match up well against an improved Panthers defense that already has eight picks to its name. With a decently small spread, there’s no reason to think Carolina won’t have an issue covering in this one against the polarizing Eagles at home.

Colts -4.5 at Home to the Saints

The Saints simply are not that good on the road. In their past 16 games away from the SuperDome, New Orleans is 5-11 SU including a woeful 0-3 this season. The Saints have been outscored by 13 points per game when travelling this season.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck has traditionally faired better in the friendly confines of Lucas Oil Stadium as well. Luck is coming off a Week 6 loss to the Patriots that saw him complete 60 percent of his passes for 312 yards and three touchdowns.
