NFL Week 7: Computer Predictions
The OddsShark Computer likes the Denver Broncos to knock off the Indianapolis Colts in Peyton Manning’s return to the RCA Dome this week.
It will be an emotional game for Manning, who spent all but the last two years quarterbacking the Colts. All six of the undefeated Broncos’ games have gone OVER the total. The Computer foresees another high-scoring game, with Denver pulling out a 42-33 win on Sunday Night Football.
In another of the week’s marquee games, the Computer likes the banged-up Dallas Cowboys to go into Philadelphia and clip the Eagles. Dallas starting RB DeMarco Murray and DE DeMarcus Ware are both expected to miss Sunday’s game against their NFC East rivals. The Eagles have injury issues of their own. Backup QB Nick Foles will be making his second straight start in place of Mike Vick. Even with the injuries to key offensive players, the Computer projects the battle of the NFC East’s two first-place teams to be high-scoring, with Dallas prevailing around 31-24.
The Houston Texans are the only team in the NFL yet to cover the spread. The Computer predicts that streak will continue against the undefeated Kansas City Chiefs. Texans backup QB Case Keenum is expected to start in place of beleaguered and banged-up starter Matt Schaub.
In another division clash, the Computer sees Tom Brady and the New England Patriots sending the New York Jets to their second straight loss. Brady led the Patriots to a remarkable, last-second comeback win over the New Orleans Saints last week. The Patriots have covered 12 of their last 14 trips to New York to play the Jets.
The OddsShark Computer heads into Week 7 with a 42-47-3 record against the spread and a 48-39-3 record on totals.
