Full list of Week 7 straight-up picks with confidence levels

The NFL returns for Week 7 and we’ve got a look at who we think will win each game taking place this week, and at what level of confidence.

The NFL is back for Week 7, and we might get a normal week. A week after Thursday Night Football was pushed to Monday, the only game in question this week is Bucs-Raiders on Sunday Night Football after Trent Brown went on the Covid-19 IR list. That will be something to track this week.

The Giants and Eagles get things going on Thursday and it’s time to start picking winners. Each Thursday, I put together a list of straight up picks for the weekly schedule. I’ll have picks against the spread over the weekend, but this is a chance to just pick winners and losers. This year though, I’ve changed up the approach. Instead of simply picking winners and losers, I’m also grouping the picks by confidence — high confidence, medium confidence, low confidence, no confidence.

I had a fairly mediocre last week, going 7-7. Below I’ve posted all my picks, with my record in that confidence level in parenthesis. A game with three asterisks (***) after it indicate a game where I’m picking the betting underdog to get the win.

High confidence (24-6)

Bills over Jets

Medium confidence (18-9)

Eagles over Giants
Saints over Panthers
Browns over Bengals
Packers over Texans
Chiefs over Broncos

Low confidence (8-11)

Titans over Steelers
49ers over Patriots***
Rams over Bears

No confidence (4-5)

Washington over Cowboys
Falcons over Lions
Cardinals over Seahawks***
Jaguars over Chargers***
Raiders over Buccaneers***
