Anthony's Week 7 Picks

Last week: 8-4-2. Season totals: 34-52-4, Pct. .400. Best Bets: 4-14, Pct. .222.

Home team in capital letters; point spreads (opening line) in parentheses after underdog team; selections with point spreads in bold.


16 (+3), San Francisco 10 - The contrast in pedigrees between the opposing quarterbacks could scarcely be starker, as one was the first player selected in his entire draft while the other wasn't drafted at all - yet with what each has shown in the NFL it's hard to tell which is which. But it's easy to tell who has the healthier bankroll as between those who have always bet on one team in this series or the other: Carolina has covered in ten of the last eleven meetings. The 49ers are also 5-11 against the spread in fatigue games, not having had a bye last week while the winless Panthers did.

ATLANTA 34, Cincinnati 17 (+5) - Guess the Bengals aren't such a lock to finally put two winning non-strike seasons back to back for the first time in 33 years, are they? And they haven't exactly been a powerhouse in domes recently: They've been beaten by 70 points in their last three in such structures - and even with last week's flat performance in Philly, the Falcons have to be feeling pretty happy about themselves sitting at 4-2 despite four of those six games being on the road.

Pittsburgh 23, MIAMI 10 (+3) - What a spot for Big Ben's belated 2010 road opener: The home team is 1-8 straight up and 0-8-1 against the spread in Miami's last nine games dating back to last December.

TAMPA BAY 28, St. Louis 7 (+1) - And I'm stone-cold serious about this score. The game won't even be close. The Bucs are 4-1 straight up in their last five and 6-0-1 versus the points in their last seven against the Rams, who have lost nine in a row on grass by a depressing 247-93 and eleven straight outdoors by a staggering 314-102. This will pay for all your Halloween-related expenses.

BALTIMORE 37, Buffalo 3 (+13) - John Harbaugh is a blithering idiot if he risks bringing Ed Reed back prematurely for this abysmal mismatch, especially with the Ravens having a bye next week. Ray Rice's momma told him there'd be days like this - facing as he will a Buffalo defense that distantly trails the entire league against the run.

TENNESSEE 19, Philadelphia 14 (+3) - Andy Reid is deftly managing his assets at both quarterback and wide receiver by daring not let either Michael Vick or DeSean Jackson anywhere near the field here, with next week's bye no doubt looming large in his calculations. But the Titans always manage to beat NFC teams, as in eleven consecutive victories over same, with nine spread covers.

Washington 20 (+3), CHICAGO 13 - You knew it wouldn't take long for Mike Martz to wreck Chicago's offense, as Matt Forte withers on the vine; and the Redskins have been fairly adept at wrecking things for the Bears of late, as in nine wins in the last eleven encounters. Upset? Some upset.

NEW ORLEANS 28, Cleveland 17 (+14) - When I told people that I'd be taking Cleveland with the 14 points in this one, more than a few of them praised me for having a lot of "guts." I've never been able to fathom that rationale - but I do know that the Browns in their present incarnation are 7-2 against the line inside NFL domes, and that includes two outright wins in the one the Saints play in. So you're damn right I'm taking the points - "gutsy" move or not.

KANSAS CITY 20, Jacksonville 10 (+6 1/2) - And I neither know nor care who starts at quarterback for the Jaguars - for whoever he is, he won't be leading them to 21 fourth-quarter points the way Matt Schaub did last week against the Chiefs.

SEATTLE 24, Arizona 13 (+3 1/2) - Reflexively picking against any team with a backup quarterback hasn't exactly worked out well for me this year, but the habit is impossible to break in this spot. Let's see what Max Hall does in what promises to be a hostile environment.

DENVER 20, Oakland 17 (+7) - When so many talking heads said "Watch out for the Raiders this year," I laughed. I'm still laughing, harder than ever; but neither the series trends - Oakland is 6-2 against the line last eight vs. Denver, of which 4-0 at Denver, nor the head-to-head unit matchups - Broncos offense dead last in the league in rushing and third in passing, Raiders defense 30th against the run and eighth against the pass - justify laying this number. So I won't - and neither should you.

SAN DIEGO 27, New England 20 (+3) - No value on San Diego here, I know; but with the Chargers being back home again, where they're 2-0 by a count of 79-23 as opposed to 0-4 on the road, who needs value? And I'm not buying into the media's slobbering love affair with the post-Randy Moss Patriots.

Minnesota 23 (+3), GREEN BAY 17 - Had this game been two weeks later it would have been a Triple Witching Hour game for the Vikings, and they're 8-30 straight up in those babies since moving indoors in 1982. But it's not, and the Packers are too banged up to prevent Brett Favre from sticking it to them yet again.


27, N.Y. Giants 21 (+3) - All I've been hearing is how only five teams have ever made the playoffs after starting 1-4, when in fact nine teams have done so. Can't people get anything right anymore? In any event, that should give the Cowboys something to celebrate; and this time around they will have reason to do just that, after the game.
