Each week brings its readers insider information from one of the leading online sports books, Sports Interaction, as to which teams everyone is betting on as well as a few free NFL picks from SIA "insider" extraordinaire, Frank Doyle. We have Free NFL picks for 2008 Week 7.

The NFL is a quarterback league. Anybody who doubts it should track down Terrell Owens in St Louis this Sunday around four o'clock, after the Cowboys' game with the Rams. TO will tell it to you straight.

Two of the premier quarterbacks in the league face off on Sunday when New Orleans visits Carolina. The Saints' Drew Brees is one of the best quarterbacks in the league and Jake Delhomme is a born gunslinger in the finest Cajun tradition. Both these men keep the chains moving and put points on the board.

Only thing is, both teams seem to have a gift for dropping the hammer and losing games that they really should win. Carolina lost to Minnesota, for goodness' sake, while the Saints, well, losing just seems to be part of their makeup. One of the secrets to winning is learning not to lose and neither Carolina nor New Orleans has mastered that yet. It makes it hard to pick a winner.

Which doesn't mean that we can't have a bet on the game, of course. Sports Interaction has set the total points scored on this one at 44.5, and I like this one to go high. Over 44.5 total points scored with Sports Interaction is the bet.

By contrast, the Monday Night Game and Denver's visit to New England looks like an exercise in faded glory for both sides. Denver lit it up at the start of the season and New England was a scoring machine for all of last year, but that's not happening now. Sports Interaction has set the total here at 47, and that looks high to me. I'm going for the under on this one.

Finally, I have to say that I'm loving Miami and the wildcat this year. I know the Dolphins will get found out eventually and that high school plays can't last in a pro league, but while it's here it's glorious. Defenses are really struggling to figure it out (I'd blitz, blitz, blitz myself) and I think Baltimore will struggle at Miami on Sunday. The question at the start of the season, whether or not Joe Flacco was lucky or good, isn't looking like the decision will go well for the former Fighting Blue Hen, and I think Flacco is in for a wet afternoon against a Miami team that knows how to play defense. Miami -3 with Sports Interaction is the pick here.
