Bill Simmons Million Dollar Picks for NFL Week 7
Philadelphia Eagles -2.5 vs. Miami Dolphins
Bill believes this is a revenge game for the Eagles, especially after a disappointing loss last week due to Jalen Hurts‘ interception. The Dolphins’ wins this season have come against what Bill considers to be among the worst teams in the league. According to him, this line should actually be Eagles -3.5, so he’s taking the Eagles -2.5.
Cleveland Browns -3 vs. Indianapolis Colts
Bill is very impressed with the Browns’ defense, describing it as potentially “historic.” He thinks that the Browns’ defense alone will win the game. In his opinion, the Browns will exploit Colts’ QB Gardner Minshew’s weaknesses and capitalize on turnovers, making Browns -3 a solid bet.
Green Bay Packers -1.5 vs. Denver Broncos
For Bill, this is a make-or-break game for the Packers. He thinks Denver is in a tanking phase, especially after letting go of key defensive players. He is confident that despite Jordan Love’s shaky performance, the Packers will win against a Denver team that he believes is looking for a high draft pick next year.
Pittsburgh Steelers +3 vs. Los Angeles Rams
Bill considers this a home game for the Steelers due to the large number of their fans expected to attend. He feels the Steelers have been conditioned against good defenses and sees this as a week for Jaylen Samuels to shine. He believes this will be a close game, so he’s taking the Steelers with the points at +3.
Teaser: Buffalo Bills -2.5 and Seattle Seahawks -1.5
Bill is not impressed with the Patriots and thinks they are in a stealth tanking mode. He sees this as an important game for the Bills. For the Seahawks, Bill thinks Geno Smith needs a good game and this is the week to get him back on track against a struggling Arizona team. He’s teasing both teams down to make it a more favorable bet.
