Top Week 7 NFL picks
After simulating every game 10,000 times, the model is high on the Patriots to cover as seven-point favorites at home against the Jets. New England (2-4) is arguably playing its best ball of the season. Last week, the Patriots pushed the NFC East-leading Cowboys before losing in overtime, 35-29. Meanwhile, the Jets (1-4) are coming off their bye week, which came after losing to Atlanta in Week 5.
Matthew Judon has been a standout on the defensive side of the ball for New England. The sixth-year linebacker from Grand Valley State is third in the NFL with 6.5 sacks this season and fifth with 12 quarterback hits. He has a QB hit in every game this season and has a sack in four of them. In the Week 2 win over the Jets, he had a sack, two QB hits and a season-high six quarterback pressures.
