Against the Odds – Week 7

Yet another consecutive four-star pick panned out for Vinnie, last week. True to form, Vinnie’s got another sure thing up his sleeve.

Dallas

St. Louis

(+7): 

After a 3-0 start that surprised few,

Dallas

was heavily favored at home against

Washington

but lost. Even more heavily favored at home the following week, the Cowboys managed to defeat the Bengals, but the nine-point differential fell well short of the line. Dallas lost again last week in Arizona, and while the Cardinals have been playing well in their own stadium, how likely is it this team will win by at least 8 with so many key players ruled out?

Cincinnati

(+9.5): 

While divisional rivalries can thwart even the surest bets, this matchup bodes extremely well for the Steelers.

Pittsburgh

’s O-line has been a liability, but the Bengals front seven on defense aren’t a dominant sort. This also marks the third game this season that quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will start for

Cincinnati

, which the Steelers defense is looking forward to.

Cleveland

@ Washington (-7.5):  The Dawgs made quite an impression on the rest of the league Monday night, giving the previously undefeated New York Giants all they could handle and then some. What can we expect from

Cleveland

at FedEx Field on Sunday? The same effective running from Jamal Lewis? The same downfield passing that highlighted Braylon Edwards’ playmaking ability? The same surprisingly good pass defense? For our purposes, as long as

Cleveland

doesn’t lose by eight or more …

Bay

(-11): 

The Bucs haven’t lost at home.

Seattle

has played horrible football in road games, losing by 31 points on average. Against

Tampa

Bay’

s quality defense, the Seahawks are faced with having to start Seneca Wallace or Charlie Frye at quarterback.
