The Los Angeles Rams have become one of the top teams in the NFC this season thanks in part to the offseason acquisition of Matthew Stafford. The veteran quarterback, who is among the league leaders in passing yards and touchdown tosses, has guided the Rams to a 5-1 record, with the only loss coming against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals. Los Angeles has a chance to post another victory on Sunday when it hosts the winless Detroit Lions. The Rams are 15-point favorites in the latest Week 7 NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook, and many will jump on them with their NFL survivor pool picks.
Other favorites that could attract attention for NFL knockout pool picks include the Cardinals (-17.5 against the Houston Texans), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-12.5 against the Chicago Bears) and Green Bay Packers (-9.5 against the Washington Football Team). Before making any Week 7 NFL survivor picks, you need to see which team the red-hot SportsLine Projection Model just went all-in on.
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,700 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. It went a sizzling 24-14 on top-rated NFL picks last season, returning more than $800. The model also enters Week 7 of the 2021 season on an incredible 125-85 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
The model can be used to crush the survivor pool format. The team winning the most model simulations each week is a perfect 6-0 after the Colts (81 percent) routed the Texans, joining the 49ers in Week 1 (75 percent), Buccaneers in Week 2 (79 percent), Cardinals and Ravens in Week 3 (79 percent), Bills in Week 4 (87 percent) and Patriots in Week 5 (78 percent) as winners for survivor contestants who used those teams over the first six weeks.

For Week 7, the model is shying away from the Kansas City Chiefs against the Tennessee Titans. Atop the AFC South with a 4-2 record, Tennessee still is looking to avenge the 35-24 loss in the 2019 AFC Championship Game since it did not face the Chiefs last season. The Titans are full of confidence for the rematch after posting a 34-31 victory over Buffalo on Monday Night Football behind a stellar performance by Derrick Henry and a strong defensive stand in the final seconds.
Henry ran for 143 yards and three touchdowns in the win, marking the second straight game in which he had a trio of rushing scores and third overall this campaign. The 27-year-old entered 2021 with a total of three contests with three or more rushing TDs over the first five years of his NFL career. Henry leads the league with 10 touchdown runs in six games after recording a career-high 17 in 16
