NFL Week 7 Survivor Pool: Go With The One-Win Chargers

NFL Week 7 Survivor Pool: Go With The One-Win Chargers

NFL Survivor Pools have exploded in popularity, and at levels for all kinds of fans, from family pools to those with thousands of dollars in cash prizes on the line.

The simple nature of it is a major draw to NFL betting fans: Survivor Pools entail picking one team to win each week, but never picking the same team twice.

It's not how much your team wins by in a Survivor Pool. Simply, it's about picking a winner and moving on — and sometimes saving the biggest favorite for a future week.

Here is the pick for Week 7:

Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers have one victory this season, and rookie QB Justin Herbert doesn’t have any. But they’ve been impressively close, with overtime losses to the Chiefs and Saints and single-digit defeats by the Panthers and Buccaneers. Their last two losses, vs. the Bucs and Saints, the Chargers led by 17 in each but blew it.

Los Angeles has had the single-toughest strength of schedule through six weeks. Facing the Jags should feel like a breath of fresh air, especially as the Chargers come in rested and motivated to stop blowing leads. Finally, Herbert should secure his much-earned first win.

Other Week 7 contenders:

Buffalo Bills: They play the Jets. ‘Nuff said — though Buffalo has looked really bad the last two weeks. The Bills are good enough to save for a future week.
