NFL Betting Advice Week 7: Houston Texans and 5 Teams That Are Locks

B/R StudiosFeatured ColumnistOctober 16, 2012

Don't quit your NFL office pool just yet.

Maybe you haven't won all that free, glorious money yet, but we're here to fix that. Bleacher Report's NFL Lead Analyst Josh Zerkle and National NFL Lead Writer Michael Schottey are here to give five locks for Week 7 in the NFL.

One of the biggest locks has to be the Oakland Raiders. Yes, those Oakland Raiders, who nearly knocked off the Atlanta Falcons in Week 6 and had no business losing that game. They host the Jacksonville Jaguars and must cover just four points, which should be an easy task for an improving Oakland team led by a slightly reinvigorated Carson Palmer.

Meanwhile, the quarterback situation in Arizona is extremely tenuous, and now the club must travel to the dome in Minneapolis to face a stout defense from the Minnesota Vikings. The boys up north are a six-point favorite, and with the Jared Allen and Co. on patrol, the Vikes should have no problem covering.

Zerkle and Schottey also talk about the Redskins, Texans and Packers. See if they like these three powerhouses in any of their matchups in our video.
