Week 7 Fredo Picks!
Welcome once again to SUS's newest weekly literary feature, The Fredo Picks. Named after the ultimate forgotten brother in film history, we will strive to bring the laser-like analysis that has made SUS famous worldwide to some of the less illustrious NFL matchups every week. And in these troubled financial times, you can rely on our picks to keep you out of mom’s basement.

Mahatma: Baltimore also has the crabs you don't want to eat. Pick: Miami
Detroit (+9.5) at Houston
