Without further to do, here we go:
Week 7 Games
Ha Kung Wong’s Picks
Ha Kung’s Thoughts:
Last year I ended up with a 66% record for the season, so that’s four years in a row with over a 60% pick rate. I’m still tied for 1st place with a 56-35 record (61.5%). Plus, I had a 94% record on Locks of the Week last year. Don’t worry, I don’t plan on stopping there either, as I’m still 6 for 6 on Locks, and 3 of 6 on Upsets!
So let’s see get to that Lock and Upset for Week 7…
Lock of the Week => San Francisco 49ers (-10.0) over Washington Redskins
It’s something I didn’t expect to be able to say, but the 49ers look legit. Jimmy G has been a game manager, but George Kittle is just dangerous enough for defenses to respect the pass. And that’s all that this loaded offensive line needs to create opportunities for Tevin Coleman and Matt Brieda. The 49ers have the 11th ranked rush offense and the Redskins are 3rd worst defending the run. The Redskins also almost managed to lose to the Miami Dolphins and only got their first win because the Dolphins decided to win or lose the game on a 2-point conversion, which didn’t pan out due to a Kenyan Drake drop. The Dolphins have the worst defense in the league and yet the Redskins only managed to get 24 points. The 49ers defense is way better, and 49ers offense have the 2nd highest average time of possession in the NFL (35:03).
Upset of the Week => Los Angeles Chargers (+2.0) over Tennessee Titans
I’m not saying that Philip Rivers looks good, and I’m not saying that I can figure out what’s happening with Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler, but the Titans are starting Ryan Tannehill this week. Come on, that can’t be good. I see the Chargers getting right this week.

Last week was horrible, the less said the better. Going to get on track by taking Detroit to beat Minnesota at home. I know the Lions are coming off an awful disappointment in Green Bay but defensively they are playing well and Kirk Cousins can’t be trusted to beat a good team on the road.
In the battle of the last two victors at Arrowhead Stadium, Indianapolis will sneak past Houston because that defense will lay siege to DeShaun Watson.
And I am finally on the Teddy Bridgewater bandwagon. It doesn’t hurt that the Bears offense looks pretty low voltage with Chase Daniel and the Saints can win low-scoring defensive battles. They will win another despite the cooling temperatures in the Windy City.
With Philadelphia vs. Dallas I don’t know how anyone can pick this game. Both teams have major problems. The Eagles secondary is awful and there well-paid defensive line couldn’t lay a glove on Kirk Cousins. Both of the Cowboys offensive tackles are injured, they couldn’t protect Dak Prescott and there defense got tuned up by Sam Darnold last week. All that said I am taking the Cowboys but I think the Giants could get to 8-8 and steal this division.
