Week 7 picks
Orlando at Atlanta (Orlando -8.5)
I didn’t even have to get to the line to pick Orlando in this one.
Salt Lake at San Antonio (San Antonio -5.5)
Salt Lake remains better than their 2-4 record indicates, but San Antonio is playing at home and has been on a tear lately. I’ll go with them.
San Diego at Arizona (San Diego +3.5)
If you go back and look at my picks, I’m pretty sure I come across as a huge San Diego homer, despite having never even visited. Arizona is a very streaky team, and despite San Diego’s troubles on the road, I think they can keep it close.
Birmingham at Memphis (Birmingham -3)
Memphis is down there with Atlanta in the league’s garbage tier, and they lost a quarterback in Zach Mettenberger whose play was a bright spot on an otherwise dim-looking record.
