Super Computer Week 7 Super Contest Picks

Well, they can’t all be winners. After three consecutive winning weeks, the OddsShark Super Computer fell back down to earth last week with a humbling 0-5 week in the Super Contest. There’s nowhere to go but up this week, though, as the computer looks to climb back to .500 with a perfect week.

Here are the computer’s Super Contest picks for Week 7 NFL action:

Ravens (PICK) Over Jets

At 2-4 ATS on the year, the Baltimore Ravens haven’t been the most reliable bet in the NFL. But with Joe Flacco and company set to take on perennially underwhelming signal-caller Geno Smith and the New York Jets, the computer is loving the Ravens to cover in the Week 7 NFL slate.

Smith has not played more than one game in a season since 2014 when he amassed an ugly 59.7 completion percentage and 77.5 quarterback rating. With Ryan Fitzpatrick struggling, the Jets had no choice but to turn to Smith, and he’s sure to show some rust against the Ravens defense.

Historically speaking, Baltimore is looking like a solid play. The Ravens have won their last eight straight up against the gang green, and they’ve gone 9-1 ATS in their past 10 versus the Jets. Take the computer’s advice and roll with the Ravens on Sunday.

Bengals (-10) Over Browns

The computer is picking a 33.2 to 14.6 Bengals victory, thus easily covering the 10-point spread. Neither of these teams has been profitable at the betting window this season with the Browns posting a 2-4 ATS mark and the Bengals going just 1-4-1 ATS.

Cincy has been the way to go if you’re betting this all-Ohio rivalry, however, as they have posted a 4-1 SU and ATS mark in the past five meetings.

Chiefs (-6.5) Over Saints

After dominating almost every area of the game against the Raiders last week, the Chiefs will host a Saints team in Week 7 that is eerily similar – on both offense and defense – to an Oakland team Kansas City is fresh off a dismantling of.

New Orleans is 2-3 and has given up more points per game than any other team in the league. The Saints are actually on pace to smash their average points given up per game that led the league last season by more than a field goal.

The Chiefs have a pretty good defense and an offense that is just dynamic enough to plow through the Saints’ almost non-existent defense. This is a tough spread and the Saints are 7-0-1 ATS in their last eight games against teams with winning records but this one feels like a blowout.

Dolphins (+3) over Bills

Riding the momentum of their best win in a very long time, the Dolphins will look for their third straight outright win and cover as a home underdog. After putting up 30 points on the Steelers D — a team that allowed a combined 27 points in its two previous games — Miami might finally be settling into new coach Adam Gase’s offense. With the health of their offensive line coming around, they embraced the run which is something they should be able to do vs a Bills defense that ranks in the middle of the pack.
 

The Bills are riding high coming into this game with four straight wins and covers, but they haven’t won five straight games since 2004. Playing at a consistently high level in the NFL is tough and the Bills are due for a letdown.

Falcons -6.5 Over Chargers

The Atlanta Falcons offense is really good. Matt Ryan and company lead the NFL in points scored, as well as currently sitting in second in passing yards and ninth in rushing yards. That offense will be facing a San Diego Chargers defense that allows 363.2 yards and 25.8 points per game.

The Falcons have faced a couple of defenses that are statistically comparable to the Chargers – in the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers – and those games saw Atlanta score a combined 72 points and rack up 945 offensive yards. Pair those numbers with a Chargers team that collapses in the fourth quarter and you can see why the Super Computer likes the Falcons.
