In the grand tradition of quasi-sports betting, we present to you game picks for Week 7 in the NFL. And more specifically, who is and who isn't picking the Kansas City Chiefs. I've put together expert picks from Yahoo, CBS, Walter Football, Pro Football Talk and our very own Joel Thorman at SBNation.com. Guess who he picked in the Chiefs/Jaguars match up?
Anyway, before we get into Joel's pick, here are what the other outlets are saying about this weekend's matchup:
The NFL brain trust at Yahoo Sports all took the Chiefs over the Jags this weekend. The icing on the cake is that 91% of Yahoo users picked the Chiefs too. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk also likes KC to win.
The guys at Walter Football like the Chiefs too but not by much - 27 to 23. They said, "The Jaguars have no heart, so I suspect that the Chiefs will be able to run all over them. Kansas City's offensive line is doing a great job of pushing the opposition around, and creating running lanes for Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones. Despite what you saw from the Jaguars early on against Chris Johnson, they're just 23rd against the rush."
The CBS crew are all taking Kansas City too. Throw in Joel's pick of, wait for it....the Chiefs, and virtually all of the major outlets are picking KC this weekend. At home...against a struggling opponent....with a weak defense....I too like the Chiefs.
