NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) for Week 7

Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will try and cover as heavy road favorites after coming up short in the same role last week.

If this NFL season wasn't already about expecting the unexpected consider this rare feat that occurred in Week 6. Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers were both favored by more than a touchdown in the same week for the 32nd time in their careers. This past Sunday marked the first time they both lost under those circumstances with Tampa Bay coming up painfully short in Pittsburgh and Green Bay getting manhandled at home by the New York Jets.

So what about Week 7? Barring a last-minute change, both future Hall of Famers will be favored again but probably not by a touchdown. Brady and the Buccaneers will likely be double-digit favorites on the road against listless Carolina while the spread for the Packers' game in Washington won't be as large. But just because the road teams are favored doesn't mean the home underdogs won't rise to the occasion, again. Last week, five such teams proved the Vegas folks wrong, including the aforementioned Steelers (Giants, Falcons, Saints and Seahawks were the others).
