NFL Week 7 Odds for Week 7 NFL Action
With that in mind, let’s take a look at every game this weekend, the odds that accompany those games and what I think should play out.
Bears vs. Packers (Opening line: Packers, -10 points)
Aaron Rodgers tries to right the ship on Thursday in Prime Time where he is most comfortable against a woeful Bears team that seems to be finding new ways to lose.
The Bears are putrid folks while Green Bay will be looking to bounce back off a disappointing effort Sunday. The Pack are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 10 after a loss – my guess is that they do it again and blow out the Bears.
Giants vs. Rams in London (Opening line: Giants, -2 points)
New York finally got Odell Beckham involved in Week 6 and it really paid off – expect more of the same against a decimated Rams secondary.
After starting the season HOT, LA has gone south – my bet is on Eli Manning stretching his career record against the Rams to 5-0 by a touchdown or more.
Vikings vs. Eagles (Opening line: Eagles, -1.5 points)
The line has shown some movement here – the Vikings are currently favored and rightfully so. Philadelphia has been exposed a little bit during a two game losing streak.
Minnesota is 5-0 SU and ATS this year – coming off a bye there is no reason to think a letdown is imminent. Carson Wentz hasn’t seen anything like he is in for against the Vikes defense – expect him to struggle against a unit that is giving up less than 13 points per game.
Take Minnesota here by at least a TD.
Saints vs. Chiefs (Opening line: Chiefs, -7 points)
The KC Chiefs off an impressive 26-10 win against the Raiders gets another crack at an awful defense when they take on the Saints – a team that showed it can score at will against decent defenses.
This game could end up being a track meet – I like a closer game than the oddsmakers are predicting. After all New Orleans is 6-3 ATS in their last nine as road underdog and KC is 1-3 ATS in their last four against NFC teams.
Redskins vs. Lions (Opening line: Lions, -1 point)
Both of these teams have woken up – the Redskins enter as the hotter of the two teams on a four-game win streak. They have covered in all four of those games – I expect them to do so again with a sound all-around game.
Despite the fact that Matthew Stafford is 3-0 against Washington, I’m taking the road underdog to keep the roll going Sunday.
Browns vs. Bengals (Opening line: Bengals, -10 points)
There isn’t a whole lot to like about the Browns and now we get word that Tyrell Prior is iffy with a hamstring injury – ugh! This is a healthy spread though – Cincinnati has averaged just 17 points per game in their last five and their defense has been giving up their share of points over that span.
Cincinnati has won by at least 21 points in each of the last four meetings with the Browns – I think that streak comes to an end as Cleveland keeps this game close and the Bengals underwhelmed yet again.
Bills at Dolphins (Opening line: Bills, -2.5 points)
The Bills are favored on the road for good reason – their offense has found another gear lately during a four game win streak that has seen them cover the spread in each – winning by at least 10 points in every game.
It is hard to imagine Ryan Tannehill and company finding enough room against an emerging Bills defense to keep this one close. I expect the Bills to keep their roll going as they sprint to another double-digit win on Sunday.
Raiders vs. Jaguars (Opening line: Jaguars, -1 point)
The Jags are favored? Unreal! Take the Raiders before the oddsmakers wake up. It’s true that Oakland has won just two of their last 18 games on the East Coast but this is a different Raiders team we are talking about.
Not only are they good but they will be extra motivated after the dud they delivered Sunday against the Chiefs.
Colts vs. Titans (Opening line: Titans, -2.5 points)
The Colts are 8-0 SU and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against the Titans so why is Tennessee favored at home?
It’s because Tennessee is the better team! Marcus Mariota had a nice game last week, DeMarco Murray has been solid and the Titans defense hasn’t been costing them games. Take the home side to end years of futility against their division rival and to add to the misery in Indy.
Ravens vs. Jets (Opening line: Ravens, -1 point)
If anyone watched the Jets on Monday night there wouldn’t be much of a question as to who I think is going to win. New York is in an absolute free-fall!
Chargers vs. Falcons (Opening line: Falcons, -6 points).
Hmmm. This one is interesting. Despite San Diego being 2-4 SU on the season, they are 4-2 ATS and none of their four losses have come by more than 6 points. When the Chargers lose, they keep it close.
I think the opposite holds true here – Atlanta is a different team that we’ve seen in the past – the defense is a good compliment to a well-balanced offense that proved last week in Seattle that they can score on the best.
The numbers say that San Diego covers in this game – my head says the Falcons avenge a loss last week and blow the Chargers out of the building Sunday.
Buccaneers vs. 49ers (Opening line: Pick’em)
The 49ers, with Colin Kaepernick are still a bad team (1-5 ATS so far this season). I expect the Bucs to be favored by game time. Despite Tampa being 0-10 against the NFC West in their last 10 tries I think they are the better team here and get it done by at least 3 points.
There won’t be many style points awarded here but Tampa should get themselves a rare road victory.
Patriots vs. Steelers (Opening line: Steelers, -1 point)
Expect this line to swell with Big Ben scheduled to miss the contest. With Roethlisberger healthy this game would have been absolutely marquee but without him it looks an awful lot like another Patriots blowout.
New England has done whatever it has wanted on offense since Tom Brady’s return – I can’t imagine the Landry Jones Steelers’ led offense to be able to match. Take the Pats to easily keep their roll going Sunday.
Seahawks vs. Cardinals (Opening line: Cardinals, -1.5 points)
The Seahawks are 3-0 straight-up and 3-0 ATS in their last three trips to Arizona and now get a prime time game there looking to go 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS in such situations.
While Arizona beat up on a bad Jets team Monday night the Seahawks are a different type of challenge. The Cards just can’t seem to beat Seattle at home – I’m banking on more of the same Sunday!
Texans vs. Broncos (Opening line: Broncos, -7 points)
Brock Osweiler makes his return to Denver Monday night! The former Broncos pivot has been pretty bad for the most part this season against some sketchy defenses. Now he is set to face one of the very best in Denver.
I expect Trevor Siemian to be better as he gets healthier and for his defense to rise to the occasion as Denver snaps a two-game losing streak in easy fashion Monday – by a touchdown or more.
Bye weeks: Cowboys, Panthers
