Week Seven Thursday Night Pick

October 19th, 2017

Another week, another instance of me not being able to finish my picks before the Thursday night game kicks off.

And, you know, it’s not like the extra time’s helping any. I went 7-7 both straight up and against the spread in week six. I’d say it doesn’t get much worse than that, but then it would. Gets me to 51-40 (.560) straight up, 43-46-2 (.484) against the spread for the season.

With that in mind, you might actually think I would start thinking about these games a lot less. I could probably do better just straight up guessing. But that wouldn’t be much fun for me. Think I’ll stick with my hopelessly misguided “thoughts.”

Here’s what not to expect tonight.

Kansas City (-3) at Oakland
Coming in to this game 2-4 overall and 0-2 in division play, the Raiders simply cannot afford to suffer a home loss to the AFC West-leading Chiefs. One might not go so far as to say losing here would end Oakland’s season, but it certainly would eliminate them from realistic contention for a division title. Unfortunately for the Raiders, who haven’t beaten the Chiefs since 2014, Oakland simply isn’t in a position to pull off the upset even with the advantage of playing at home on a short week. I think it’s a competitive game through at least three quarters, but I expect Kansas City to come out ahead by a touchdown.
