UNU’s Picks for Week 7 of the NFL

A Swarm AI Picks Every Game in the NFL Lineup

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Week 7 NFL Swarm! And congrats again to user “ItalianSauce” who scored his second victory in Week 6.

We had a great group in UNU today, and a fairly confident one. 8 of this week’s games were picked with High Confidence, and 7 underdogs were chosen. In fact, the Swarm believed that the underdog Raiders would win by a healthy 9 points, so take a good look at that game to see if you agree.

The results below are sorted by predicted Confidence and then by Brainpower. As always, I would encourage you to watch each games replay for a better understanding of how the Swarm arrived at its prediction. For example, lower brainpower could reflect a toss-up between the two teams, or it could mean that the Swarm was torn between High and Low Confidence in the pick.

Here’s a look at the replay from this week’s most confident Swarm. In a pick ’em game between the Ravens and the Jets, the Swarm very quickly registered its preference for the Ravens. Savvy readers will notice that these same Jets were victimized last week by the Cardinals in the Swarm’s most confident pick. But, while the Jets have certainly looked bad in recent weeks, keep in mind that Joe Flacco, the Ravens quarterback, was held out of practice recently.

This should go without saying, but if you’re going to bet on football – or anything else, for that matter – be smart about it. UNU has a pretty good track record, but football is notoriously difficult to predict Against the Spread.

Without further ado, here are the Swarm’s picks for Week 7 of the NFL season…
