    MATCHUP OF THE WEEK: Indianapolis Colts (3-2-1) @ Tennessee Titans (3-2)
    Game Preview: Believe it or not, this is the only time in Week 7 that two teams over .500 will meet.

    The Colts are eager to welcome back Jonathan Taylor, who has been out of action since October 2nd with an ankle injury. Indianapolis has been far more pass-heavy without Taylor, exemplified by Michael Pittman Jr. racking up 13 catches for 134 yards last week.

    Matt Ryan currently ranks 2nd in the NFL in passing attempts (253) and passing yards (1,765), and faces a Titans secondary that has yielded an NFL-worst, 288 passing yards per game.

    Despite some defensive woes, the Titans have rattled off 3 wins in a row, against the Raiders, Colts and Commanders. Derrick Henry is always a threat to score and has tallied 5 TDs thus far.

    The Colts will need a more inspired effort to get it done against the Titans in the regular season rematch, and I think they have a great shot to pull it out with a bit more scoring this time around.

    PICKS: IND +2.5 & O42.0

    -Michael Pittman Jr (IND) – Over 6.5 Receptions (+127)

    -Derrick Henry (TEN) – Over 90.5 Rushing Yards (-109)

    Cleveland Browns (2-4) @ Baltimore Ravens (3-3)
    Injury Watch (Impact Players)
    Questionable: WR Rashod Bateman (BAL), TE Mark Andrews (BAL), DE Jadeveon Clowney (CLE)
    Out: RB JK Dobbins (BAL), CB Denzel Ward (CLE)
    Game Preview: This NFC North clash is bound to be won in the trenches, as both squads feature explosive ground games.

    Nick Chubb leads all RBs with 649 rushing yards, while Lamar Jackson leads all QBs with 451 rushing yards.

    The Ravens just lost JK Dobbins for multiple weeks and Rashod Bateman is looking unlikely to return after missing the past 2 weeks with a foot injury. Mark Andrews is expected to play, but it’s no secret that Baltimore is banged up.

    Aside from being blown out by the Patriots, the Browns have been keeping games close and I’d expect this to come down to a field goal. I’m also leaning Under (45.5) with run-heavy game scripts, milking the clock and shortening the game.

    PICKS: CLE +6.5 & U45.5

    -Lamar Jackson (BAL) – Over 69.5 Rushing Yards (+108)
    -Amari Cooper (CLE) – Over 5.5 Receptions (+125) & Over 65.5 Receiving Yards (+108)
    -David Njoku (CLE) – Over 4.5 Receptions (+152)
    -Nick Chubb (CLE) – Over 86.5 Rushing Yards (+100)
