2009 Week 7 NFL Preview

The full predictions each week are at http://sites.google.com/site/computerratings/nfl-football/nfl-predictions but below is a discussion of some of the interesting games.  These games all picked by the current computer ratings here.

Cincinnati hosts Chicago and at one point was favored by 1 but is now a 1 point underdog.  With the computer picking Cincinnati by 2.1 this is becoming a stronger Cincinnati pick.

Vegas has been consistently over estimating Dallas this year (they are 2-3 in beating the spread) and my computer has taken advantage of that (4-1 against the spread in Dallas games this year) and has another pick against them, this time picking the outright upset against Atlanta where Vegas has Dallas a 5.5 point pick but the computer likes Atlanta by 3.5.

Other outright upsets the computer is picking include Buffalo, San Francisco, and in what could be the most interesting game of the week, the computer picks Minnesota to win (but only by 0.2) while the Vegas line has grown to Pittsburgh by 7.  Hopefully it will be an entertaining game.

The computer is coming off a couple good weeks going 10-4 and 8-5-1 the past two weeks against the spread and 4-2-1 best picks and 2-1 locks last week.  If you are interested in additional details on picks against the spread, best picks, and locks, see this where you can subscribe to a weekly newsletter.

Enjoy the games.
