NFL Picks, News and Promotions

Updated: List of 2017 NFL Bye Weeks.

Washington Redskins vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pick - In NFC East action, the Washington Redskins come to the City of Brotherly Love to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football. The Eagles are coming off a nice Thursday night win over the Panthers, a win that moved them to 5-1 on the season. They look for a repeat win at home on MNF against the Redskins, who they beat in week one. The Redskins had a close win against the 49ers coming off the bye on Sunday and look to add a gust of wind to their sails by beating a good team and exacting revenge on their division rivals this week. Loot breaks down this matchup here in this article. (8:30PM EST) - 10/23

Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots Pick - In a rematch from the last Super Bowl, the Atlanta Falcons come to Foxborough to face the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football. The Pats won last week, beating the Jets and going to 4-2, but they haven't quite been the Patriots we know. They are better off than a Falcons team that seems to be in a swoon after giving up a big lead on Sunday and losing to the Dolphins at home. Can they get things on the right track in this revenge-scenario? Or will a Patriots team that hasn't performed well at home this season stick it to a Falcons' team that seems to be receding? Loot offers his pick here. (8:30PM EST) - 10/22

Denver Broncos vs. Los Angeles Chargers Pick - The Denver Broncos come to the StubHub Center to face the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday in AFC West action. The Broncos already beat the Chargers narrowly this season in week one and look for a repeat of that on Sunday. Last week, the Broncos produced a big dud, losing as big favorites by 13 to a winless Giants' bunch. They should have a game on their hands against a Chargers team that has won two in a row after an 0-4 start. Loot gives his betting selection in this article. (4:25PM EST) - 10/22

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Pittsburgh Steelers Pick - In AFC North action, the Cincinnati Bengals take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday at Heinz Field. The Bengals won two straight after a rough 0-3 start and are coming off the bye looking to get to .500 with a really big win this week. But standing in their way is a home Steelers team that got back on the winning track on Sunday, becoming the first team to beat the Chiefs this season. Can they keep the momentum going this week? Or will Cincy continue their resurgence? Loot offers his take in this article. (4:25PM EST) - 10/22

Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Giants Pick - In NFC action on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks come out east to take on the New York Giants in week 7 play from MetLife Stadium. The Giants are just 1-5, but they showed a lot of moxie last week in pinning a 23-10 win over the Broncos in a big road win that showed they are still playing hard despite this season getting off to a horrible start. The Seahawks face a tricky road spot here, but are coming off a bye week, which followed a nice win over the Rams. Who can emerge from this one with the win and the cover? Loot breaks it all down in this article. (4:25PM EST) - 10/22

Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers Pick - On Sunday, The Dallas Cowboys come off the bye to face the San Francisco 49ers at Levi's Stadium. The Niners might be 0-6, but they have set an NFL record by losing five straight games decided by three or less points. They look for more of that scrappiness and a win against a Dallas team that needs a positive development after a 2-3 start to the season. Who can get the cover on Sunday? Loot breaks down this game and offers his ATS betting selection in this article. Take a look! (4:05PM EST) - 10/22

Baltimore Ravens vs. Minnesota Vikings Pick - The Baltimore Ravens meet the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday in week seven action from U.S. Bank Stadium.

Who can win this one and for our purposes, who will cover the spread? Loot makes his ATS pick here. - (1PM EST)

New York Jets vs. Miami Dolphins Pick - The New York Jets come to Hard Rock Stadium to face the Miami Dolphins in week seven AFC East action. The Jets are 3-3 after losing to the Patriots in somewhat controversial fashion last week. They look for more against a team they already beat and nearly shut out this season in the Miami Dolphins. But the 'Fins are getting on a roll after scoring a comeback victory on the road against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. They look for more success at home, while also looking to exact revenge on their division foes. Who can come up roses this Sunday? Loot offers his breakdown here. (1PM EST) - 10/22

Arizona Cardinals vs. Los Angeles Rams Pick - The Arizona Cardinals meet the Los Angeles Rams in week seven action from Twickenham Stadium in London, England on Sunday. The Rams are looking good at 4-2 and will be looking for more success after playing in this stadium last season. To do so, they'll need to beat a Cardinals team that won on Sunday and looked to get a gust of energy with the addition of running back Adrian Peterson, who ran for two touchdowns in the win. Who can get the cover across the pond? Loot breaks down this game here. (1PM EST) - 10/22

New Orleans Saints vs. Green Bay Packers Pick - The New Orleans Saints come into Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

Carolina Panthers vs. Chicago Bears Pick - The Carolina Panthers come to Soldier Field on Sunday to take on the Chicago Bears in week 7 action. The Bears are coming off a nice overtime road win over Baltimore and look for more against a Carolina team coming off the long week and looking to atone for a Thursday Night Football loss to the Eagles last week. The Bears look for their second win in a row with rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky, while Cam Newton looks to get the Panthers on the right track this week in a tricky road spot in Soldier Field. Loot breaks the game down here and makes his ATS pick. (1PM EST) - 10/22

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders Pick - In AFC West action on Thursday Night Football, the Kansas City Chiefs come into the Bay Area to face the Oakland Raiders. The Chiefs lost their first game of the season the Steelers on Sunday and look to get back on the winning track against a team that they had success with last season. But at 2-4, we might have a desperate Raiders team on our hands. They lost by a point to the Chargers on Sunday and look to start stockpiling wins before the season gets out of hand. Who will cover the spread on Sunday at the Coliseum? Loot offers his wagering guidance here in this article. (8:30PM EST) - 10/19

New York Giants vs. Denver Broncos Pick - The New York Giants come to Mile High to face the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Pick - The Los Angeles Rams make the trip out to Florida to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in week six action. On Sunday, the Jaguars scored a really nice win, pounding the Steelers in a 30-9 road-win to bring their mark to 3-2. They aren't that consistent, but at their best, they can really bring the heat. They look for more of that at home against the Rams, who fell to 3-2 with a loss to Seattle on Sunday. Who can get the win on Sunday and for our purposes, who will cover the spread? Loot gives his take here. (4:05PM EST) - 10/15

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Arizona Cardinals Pick - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers come to Glendale on Sunday to face the Arizona Cardinals. Tampa is 2-2 and coming off a tough Thursday Night Football loss to the Patriots in a game that was imminently winnable if not for several missed field goals. In the long week, they addressed that issue and now face a tough road test against the 2-3 Cardinals. Arizona is looking to atone for a lopsided loss last Sunday in Philly.

Cleveland Browns vs. Houston Texans Pick - The Cleveland Browns come to NRG Stadium on Sunday to face the Houston Texans.

Can their newfound optimism on offense with exciting rookie QB Deshaun Watson override their issues on defense? Can Cleveland put it together this week? Loot breaks it all down here, along with his wagering pick. (1PM EST)

Chicago Bears vs. Baltimore Ravens Pick - The Chicago Bears come into MT&T Stadium to face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.

The 49ers won just two games last season and both of them came against the Rams. Who will come out ahead this week on Thursday Night Football? Loot offers his ATS pick here. (8:30PM EST) - 9/21

Detroit Lions vs. New York Giants Pick - The Detroit Lions come to East Rutherford to face the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.
