Hilton Contest Picks Week 7

Last week went 4-1 and overall am at 19-11, still 3 points off the lead. 2-3 the prior week was a huge swing. Hopefully can back up a 4-1 with a 5-0. Dogs have been super hot as I am sure alot of you know here are some crazy stats

Stat of the Year! NFC teams as underdogs have covered 34 of 38 games against the spread!! 34 winners and 4 losers!!!

Underdogs in the NFL last week won 12 of 14 games against the spread. There’s been only TWO weeks since 1989 that underdogs covered an equal or higher percentage!

NFL underdogs in 2012 have covered 64% of the time. Only one other season since 1989 have underdogs covered even 60% at this point in the season.

Teams BEFORE bye: covered only 3 of 16 games this season.
(byes next week: Bills, Texans, Ravens, Bengals)

So with all these crazy numbers I was actually trying to take some favorites even though I am a dog guy but I couldnt find one to take that I liked better than these five below. (Pats and Raiders almost were my favs but I like these better)

8 BROWNS + 3
24 BENGALS* + 2½
18 BUCCANEERS* + 2½
12 RAMS* + 5½
6 CARDINALS + 6½
I have 3 of the 5 most common picks, was alittle surpised by that but what can you do:
