NFL Expert Picks, Week 7: Jets And Charges, Where We Pick Against The Better Team

NFL Week 7 expert picks against the spread are here so you can stop your worrying and get down to following our advice as you gamble your life away. Seriously, folks, don't gamble your life away and if you insist on doing that, please try and get plenty of advice. 

Here's our picks for the Sunday morning games. We'll have picks for the rest of the games on Friday. You can pick against us in our weekly contest which you can join here (ID: 55411, PW: arizona).

Washington Redskins at Carolina Panthers (-3): Welcome to the NFL season, John Beck! Cam Newton can probably share a few tips. Newton had a pretty poor game last week and let us down with our pick but we will not be deterred. Pick: Panthers

Seattle Seahawks at Cleveland Browns (-3): The Browns are pretty good defensively at home. The Seahawks are a bad road team under normal circumstances. This week they aren't even sure if Tavaris Jackson or Charlie Whitehurts will be taking snaps on Sunday. Pick: Browns

Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions (-3.5): Pretty much everything in this game favors the Lions, including their desire to bounce back after blowing a late lead to the 49ers. Yet the line is only 3.5 points? Vegas, sometimes you make this too easy. Pick: Lions

Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins (-1.5): Tim Tebow returns to Florida! We hear it's going to be a state holiday (and yes, people in Florida work on Sundays). Pick: Tebow

San Diego Chargers at New York Jets (-2.5): Here we have the best game on the schedule for Sunday morning. The Chargers are rounding into form but the Jets at 3-3 are fighting for their playoff life. The Chargers are the better team but the better team doesn't always win. Pick: Jets

Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+1): Are you surprised as we are that the Bucs are 4-2? Neither of these teams are consistent and the Vegas spread here recognizes this one is a toss up. If we could skip this pick we would. Pick: Bears 

Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans (-3): We still are not entirely convinced that this really isn't the same team. Both teams are good defensively but the edge goes to the Titans passing game over the Texans secondary. Pick: Titans
