NFL WEEK 7: Our official predictions for who wins this weekend

Week 6 was a wild one for NFL fans.

Adrian Peterson turned the clock back, the New York Jets got caught on the wrong end of the season's most controversial ruling, Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone, and it was all capped off by another Monday night miracle for gamblers.

Parity is now king in the NFL in a world where the Dolphins can come back from a 17-0 deficit to beat the Falcons in Atlanta and the winless Giants can go into Mile High Stadium and take down the Broncos, anybody can truly beat anybody.

This means the "sure bets" for gamblers are few and far between. But if you look for trends you trust and bet accordingly, you can still make it through Sunday with your wallet intact.

After going 7-7 last week, our season record stands at 50-40-1 against the spread so far, a tidily profitable number. On to the Week 7 games, where we will attempt to improve on this already winning year.

The pick: Raiders 3

The logic: The Raiders are desperate for a win, at home, and underdogs in this spot. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are getting over 70 of the bets on this game according to SportsInsights. Weird things happen on short weeks maybe Derek Carr finally starts showing the skill that carried the Raiders to so many late victories last season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers NO LINE at Buffalo Bills Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET

The pick: Buccaneers

The logic: Ryan Fitzpatrick revenge game! Or at least, possibly there's no line on this game right now because Jameis Winston still might play on Sunday and if he does, Tampa will also be in good hands. But if he can't go and Fitzpatrick gets the start, be ready for him to pour some the points on his former team. There's no fuel for football like a desire to destroy those that have wronged you in the past.

Carolina Panthers -3 at Chicago Bears Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET

The pick: Bears 3

The logic: Two things I believe in: home underdogs, and Mitch Trubisky. This game features both!
