Here are your NFL week 7 picks:
 
Oakland +5.5 at Green Bay: Thanks to 4-5 awful calls from the referees the Packers overcame a double digit deficit to beat the Lions on Monday night. Despite the victory the Packers now see themselves with 4 starting offensive players injured and currently not practicing. The Raiders are coming off a win over the Bears followed by a bye week. The Raiders have wins over quality teams and with Patrick Mahomes now injured they are actually alive in the AFC West. The Packers are on a short week and banged up. The Raiders are for real and alive as a big underdog. Pick: Raiders
 
New Orleans +3 at Chicago: The Bears were embarrassed in London spotting the Raiders a 17-0 lead 2 weeks ago then allowing a game winning 90 yard drive as time expired. The Saints keep rolling and haven't lost since Drew Brees went down week 2. This is a good spot for Chicago. It is expected Mitchell Trubisky will return from his shoulder injury. The Bears will be an angry team, especially on defence. The Saints will also likely be without Alvin Kamara which is a huge loss playing back to back road games. Look for a bounce back performance from Chicago. Pick: Bears
 
Baltimore +3.5 at Seattle: Great matchup in Seattle. Russell Wilson your MVP especially after the Mahomes injury has been incredible this season. Baltimore is a quality AFC team that is in every game with the exception of a egg they laid versus Cleveland. Seattle has been winning but all their games are close. They rallied from a 20-6 deficit against Cleveland last week but the Sea Hawks have been unable to beat anyone by more than one score. I see this game going down to the wire so I am taking the dog with the points. Pick: Baltimore
 
Good luck
