New Orleans Saints at Arizona Cardinals -2.5
The Cardinals turned in their most impressive showing of the season thus far on Thursday as they toppled the Saints by a score of 42-34. Kliff Kingsbury’s squad covered the -2.5 spread and the game went over the 44 point total. Arizona is now 4-3 against the spread this season while the Saints are 2-5 ATS.
Atlanta Falcons at Cincinnati Bengals
The Falcons pulled off quite the home upset in Week 6, upending the 49ers, which were fielding a very short-handed defense, by a 28-14 score. The Bengals were victorious as well, defeating a Saints team that was particularly injury-hampered on offense by a 30-26 score.
Marcus Mariota took advantage of the thin 49ers defense Sunday by amassing 179 total yards and three total touchdowns while only misfiring on one of his 14 attempts. However, whether he can keep that up week to week naturally remains a question for the inconsistent veteran, who also had seven turnovers across his first five games and now faces a Bengals team that already has five interceptions and a modest 218.0 passing yards per game and an NFL-low 56.6 percent completion rate.
The Bengals got Ja’Marr Chase going again Sunday after several relatively quiet games, with the star wideout posting a 7-132-2 line on 10 targets. Cincy has also done a better job of achieving balance recently than earlier in the season, with Joe Mixon, who also scored a receiving touchdown against the Saints, averaging 5.6 yards per carry in his last two games. The Falcons are allowing an NFC-high 281.2 passing yards per game (69.0 percent completion rate), so the Burrow-Chase connection could be primed to thrive again.
Although Atlanta remains a perfect 6-0 ATS on the season, they’re hefty 6-to-6.5-point road underdogs when looking at NFL Week 7 odds.
Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys
The Lions were off in Week 6 after suffering a 29-0 thumping at the hands of the Patriots in Week 5. Meanwhile, the Cowboys paid their first visit to the loss column since Week 1 on Sunday night when they fell to the still-undefeated Eagles on the road, 26-17.
The Lions’ last performance notwithstanding, Detroit should come into this game with its stars rested and feeling much better from recent nagging injuries. Specifically, D’Andre Swift is expected to be ready for a normal workload after sitting out the last two games before the bye with shoulder/ankle issues, while Amron-Ra St. Brown, who came back for the loss to New England still dealing with a gimpy ankle, should be back much closer to full health. However, the matchup against the Cowboys is far from ideal on either front – Dallas is allowing a stingy 105.3 rushing yards per game in the last three and just 183.5 passing yards per contest. Moreover, the Cowboys get plenty of pressure (NFL-high 24 sacks), which has helped lead to a solid five INTs recorded thus far.
The big story surrounding the Cowboys in this game is the potential return of Dak Prescott from his thumb injury. Prescott’s pregame throwing session Sunday night reportedly went very well, which, when coupled with Cooper Rush’s carriage turning into somewhat of a pumpkin against Philly in the form of three picks, makes a Dak return extremely likely for this game. On paper, the landing could hardly be any softer, as Detroit is allowing 261 passing yards per game and NFL-high 428.6 total yards per contest.
Despite Detroit’s rest edge, the homefield advantage for Dallas and Prescott’s expected return has the hosts as healthy touchdown favorites.
Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans
The Colts, and Matt Ryan in particular, may have finally found their stride on offense in Week 6, as they authored a spirited 34-27 comeback win over the Jaguars. The Titans were off in Week 6 after having tripped up the Commanders on the road by a 21-17 score in Week 5, a victory sealed by an end-zone interception of Carson Wentz in the closing seconds.
Ryan authored his first 300-yard effort of the season but first in a win, and most importantly, he was free of sacks and turnovers for the first time as a Colt. Additionally, the veteran QB led the type of late game-winning drive the team undoubtedly envisioned he’d be capable of when acquiring him, and he now faces a Titans squad he compiled what had been a season-high 356 yards prior to Sunday’s tally in a Week 4 loss.
Tennessee will have the advantage of coming in off a bye, a scenario under which they’re 4-1 straight up and ATS since Mike Vrabel’s arrival in 2018. The Titans were able to run the ball successfully on Indy in that first meeting – Derrick Henry gained 114 yards on 22 carries – which helped Ryan Tannehill stay away from turnovers and throw a pair of TDs despite taking three sacks. However, the Colts’ pass defense has only gotten stingier, allowing just 167.3 passing yards per game in the last three (including the Tennessee game).
With the Titans enjoying a homefield/rest advantage, they’re unsurprisingly 2.5-to-3-point home favorites as the week starts.
Green Bay Packers at Washington Commanders
The Packers’ concerning early-season play may have hit its peak in Week 6, as Green Bay suffered a shocking 27-10 loss to the Jets at Lambeau Field. The Commanders are certainly mired in their own problems despite having squeaked out a 12-7 Thursday night win over the Bears in Week 6, as Carson Wentz threw for only 99 yards and took three sacks while also suffering a right ring finger injury he’ll reportedly now undergo surgery to address.
Matters are unraveling in Green Bay to the point where Aaron Rodgers is advocating publicly for the team to make some moves at the trade deadline to boost the air attack’s firepower. Rodgers threw for 246 yards and a touchdown while generating a 9:3 TD:INT for the season overall, but he was clearly hampered by a short-handed pass-catching corps Sunday that was sans Christian Watson (hamstring) and which also was hurt by the early exit of Randall Cobb due to an ankle injury that will likely keep him out for this game at minimum.
On the other side, the Commanders look set to have to make due with former starter Taylor Heinicke for at least this game, as Wentz figures to miss at least some time if he does go through with his surgery. Heinicke is certainly a capable short-term solution and could even offer better play than Wentz has recently, but he’ll presumably be facing the same protection issues his teammate has. Washington has allowed a co-NFL-high 3.8 sacks per game, while the Packers have accrued an impressive 14 QB takedowns and have given up an NFL-low 164.0 passing yards per contest.
Despite the home setting, oddsmakers have no faith in the Commanders irrespective of who’s under center – the Pack is a significant 5.5-point road favorite for the moment.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers
The Buccaneers were one of several teams to suffer surprising upsets Sunday, as Tampa Bay fell to a Steelers team essentially missing its entire secondary by a 20-18 score. The Panthers began the Steve Wilks era with a loss and some controversy, as Carolina fell to the Rams by a 24-10 score in a game that saw the since-traded Robbie Anderson kicked off the sideline by the interim head coach.
The Bucs are now 3-3 and alarmingly tied for the NFC South lead with the Falcons, certainly a development no one saw coming. Tom Brady was relatively ineffective when it mattered most, as Tampa Bay now sports a No. 21-ranked 50.0 percent red-zone TD success rate after they settled for field goals in three of their four trips inside the 20 on Sunday. Tampa Bay does have a more favorable outlook in that regard in this matchup, however, as Carolina has allowed an elevated 69.2 percent TD success rate in that part of the field in the last three games.
The end result may have been the same as it frequently was during the doomed Matt Rhule era, but Wilks wasted no time asserting himself by disciplining Anderson for insubordination with his receivers coach on Sunday, which partly led to the team actually trading the disgruntled wideout to the Cardinals on Monday. Carolina followed up the Anderson deal with an all-time blockbuster trade as it sent Christian McCaffrey to San Francisco for a boatload of draft picks. The on-field product figures to remain subpar with PJ Walker starting at QB this weekend.
Even with their own issues, the Bucs are still healthy double-digit road favorites when looking at NFL Week 7 odds as kickoff nears.
New York Giants at Jacksonville Jaguars
The Giants continued their Cinderella start to the Brian Daboll era Sunday, coming back to trip up the Ravens by a 24-20 score. The Jaguars weren’t as fortunate, blowing another lead on the road to fall to the Colts, 34-27, on a late Matt Ryan touchdown pass.
New York once again managed to defeat what would have seemed like a superior opponent on paper with excellent coaching and some timely plays on both sides of the ball. Daniel Jones still doesn’t inspire a ton of confidence, but he’s definitely been better about ball security thus far under Daboll and is also completing a career-high 67.3 percent of his passes. He’ll face a Jags defense that’s been more vulnerable to the pass lately, now allowing 244.5 passing yards per contest.
Jacksonville’s Trevor Lawrence and his air attack remains a work in progress as well, and the Jags have regressed by losing three straight following a 2-1 start. Travis Etienne is starting to become much more of a part of the offense as a whole, but the G-Men have tightened up on defense to the tune of just 185.7 passing yards per game surrendered in the last three. However, New York’s rush defense is another story, as it just allowed journeyman Kenyan Drake his first 100-yard effort since 2020 on Sunday and is surrendering 144.8 rushing yards per game.
Oddsmakers are affording the Giants respect, however, as NFL Week 7 odds show them as standard +3 road underdogs in what is often a tough environment.
Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
The law of diminishing returns may be setting in with Jacoby Brissett, who struggled against old head coach Bill Belichick in a 38-15 throttling at the hands of the Patriots in Week 6. The Ravens have their own problems suffering a 24-20 upset at the hands of the Giants in a game that featured yet another late blown lead.
Brissett now has a poor 55.3 percent completion rate and 2:4 TD:INT in his last three games. The Ravens have picked off eight passes and tallied 14 sacks, so despite the mediocre 3-3 season record, Baltimore’s defense can still clearly create problems. The Ravens have also done a good job against the run – they’re allowing a modest 103.8 rushing yards per game after limiting Saquon Barkley to 3.8 yards per carry Sunday – so Cleveland’s vaunted Nick Chubb-Kareem Hunt duo could have its share of challenges.
Lamar Jackson has had his share of struggles as well and completed just 53.1 percent of his passes Sunday while throwing an INT and losing a fumble on the Ravens’ last two drives versus the G-Men. The matchup against the Browns does shape up as a potential get-right spot for the one-time league MVP, however – Cleveland is allowing 361.3 total yards per game and has been gashed on the ground for 179.3 rushing yards per game over the last three.
Despite their recent issues, the Ravens are unsurprisingly 6.5-point favorites on the NFL Week 7 odds board despite uncertainty about the availability of J.K. Dobbins (knee) and Rashod Bateman (foot).
New York Jets at Denver Broncos
The Jets pulled off one of several notable upsets in Week 6, going into Lambeau and using a combination of opportunistic defense and efficient offense to notch a 27-10 victory over the Packers. The Broncos will be trying to pull off their own road upset Monday night when they head into SoFi Stadium to tangle with the division-rival Chargers.
The Jets have been getting it done with true team efforts, and it’s worth noting Zach Wilson and his bevy of young pass-catching weapons haven’t really gotten going yet. One rookie who definitely has is Breece Hall, who’s averaging 5.1 yards per carry and also has a 6-117 line through the air in the three games since being afforded a true lead-back workload. He’ll have a solid outlook for this matchup, as the Broncos will head into their Monday night matchup having allowed 135.3 rushing yards per game in the prior three contests.
Denver will hope to get its passing game truly unleashed against the Chargers, but Russell Wilson, who’s dealing with a partly torn lat muscle, will naturally have to play a key part. The matchup here will be a thorny one by the numbers for the struggling vet, as the Jets have allowed only 184.7 passing yards per game in the last three contests.
Ahead of Denver’s Monday night battle, the Broncos are only 3-to-3.5-point home favorites.
Houston Texans at Las Vegas Raiders
The Texans were off in Week 6 after forging a gritty 13-6 win over the Jaguars in Jacksonville for Houston’s first win of the season. The Raiders suffered another heartbreaking loss before their Week 6 bye, dropping a 30-29 decision to the Chiefs on Monday night, Oct. 10 to close out the Week 5 slate.
The biggest development for the Texans thus far has been the play of rookie running back Dameon Pierce, who’s produced a 60-310-3 line on the ground and an 11-43 tally through the air in the last three games. Pierce’s presence should continue to help keep defenses honest against the still developing Davis Mills, who’s generated a middling 5:4 TD:INT through five games. The Week 7 matchup is better for Mills than his rookie running back on paper, however – the Raiders are yielding 256.0 passing yards per game while conceding only 103.2 per contest on the ground.
The Raiders are 1-4, yet their quartet of defeats have come by a combined 14 points. Las Vegas ranks 10th in yards per game (360.6) and has already received several excellent performances from both Josh Jacobs and Davante Adams. The matchup on the ground for Jacobs should be excellent, however, allowing 164.8 rushing yards per game, including 188.7 per road contest.
With both teams having an equal rest advantag, the Raiders are still home touchdown favorites when looking at NFL Week 7 odds.
Seattle Seahawks at LA Chargers
The Seahawks continued their surprisingly solid start to what was supposed to be a rebuilding season of sorts, upending the Cardinals by a 19-9 score on Sunday. The Chargers will take the field Monday night at SoFi Stadium against the Broncos, with L.A. looking to build on a wild 30-28 win over the Browns.
Geno Smith didn’t put up another set of gaudy numbers like he’d managed in the previous two games, but he steered clear of interceptions for the third consecutive contest and benefitted from strong performances by both his defense and rookie running back Kenneth Walker (21-97-1 on the ground). The Chargers enter Monday night’s game having allowed 165 rushing yards per game in the last three, so Seattle could certainly enjoy the benefits of a balanced attack once again.
The Chargers will be aiming to keep Austin Ekeler on the right track Monday night after the versatile back exploded for a career-high 173 rushing yards versus the Browns in Week 5. Ekeler will certainly enjoy another favorable matchup in this contest, considering Seattle has given up 165.8 rushing yards per game. Justin Herbert will also be poised for success, as the ‘Hawks have allowed 254.0 passing yards per road contest, along with 12.9 yards per completion in that split.
Despite Seattle’s better-than-expected start and the fact it will enjoy a rest advantage here, the Chargers are still favored by a touchdown ahead of their Monday night matchup.
Kansas City Chiefs at San Francisco 49ers
The Chiefs were upended by the Bills at home in a revenge game for Buffalo, with Josh Allen and company notching a narrow 24-20 win at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday. The Niners went on the road and were surprisingly upset by the Falcons, 28-14, a game San Francisco did have to play without multiple defensive starters, including Nick Bosa.
The Chiefs’ four-point loss to their potential AFC Championship Game opponent isn’t much cause for concern, as it was a game KC led in late and could have certainly gone either way considering the talent on either side. The KC defense certainly gets somewhat of a breather in this matchup as far as the quarterback is concerned, but Patrick Mahomes and company will have a tough assignment against a Niners defense that’s still allowing an NFL-low 255.8 total yards per game and 4.2 yards per play.
San Francisco has plenty of firepower on offense in its own right, and those players actually accumulated some impressive yardage totals in Sunday’s loss despite the Niners finishing with only 14 points. They’ll naturally be aiming for better efficiency against a Chiefs defense that’s ranked a sub-par 19th with 356.5 total yards per game allowed and that’s surrendered 304.7 passing yards per game in the last three contests. New 49ers acquisition Christian McCaffrey could see action in this game but it’s unlikely that CMC’s workload will be too heavy.
In what should be one of the most attractive games of the slate from a betting perspective, the 49ers were 2-point home underdogs on Friday.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Miami Dolphins
The Steelers pulled off one of Week 6’s biggest shockers, upending Tom Brady and the Bucs by a 20-18 score despite missing four defensive backs, including three starters. The Dolphins’ swoon continued at home, where they fell to the Vikings by a 24-16 score.
One of the big questions surrounding the Steelers will be who’ll be under center for this primetime showdown, as Kenny Pickett suffered a concussion that forced him from the win against the Bucs and ws replaced by Mitchell Trubisky. The recently deposed starter was very effective while going 9-for-12 for 144 yards and the game-winning TD throw to Chase Claypool, and if he’s under center against Miami, he’ll be facing a secondary that’s been surprisingly vulnerable through the air to the tune of 256.7 passing yards per game and a 67.8 percent completion rate allowed.
Teddy Bridgewater was once again called upon in Week 6 and delivered a 300-yard effort against his original club, but Tua Tagovailoa has reportedly been cleared to return for this matchup. The third-year signal-caller’s health will naturally continue to be a subject of heavy scrutiny, but he could certainly have an advantage if the Steelers are forced to work short-handed again, and especially if Minkah Fitzpatrick misses his Miami homecoming with the knee injury that kept him out of Sunday’s contest.
Irrespective of Pittsburgh’s upset and Miami’s recent struggles, NFL Week 7 odds show the Fins as touchdown favorites.
Chicago Bears at New England Patriots
The Bears’ offensive struggles continued despite continued improvement from Justin Fields in Week 6, as Chicago opened up the slate with a Thursday night, 16-6 home loss to the Commanders. The Patriots managed a second straight impressive win, walloping the Browns on the road by a 38-15 score.
Fields has averaged 190.7 passing yards per game in his last three, which is still a sub-par figure but certainly eats the jaw-dropping 99 he put up in his first trio of contests. The mobile signal-caller also hurt his left (non-throwing) shoulder in the loss to Washington, but he’s likely to be available for this matchup against a Pats defense that’s been especially effective while giving up only 15 points the last two games.
Rookie QB Bailey Zappe threw for over 300 yards in a stellar effort Sunday, evoking the notion the Pats may have unearthed another later-round gem at quarterback 22 years after plucking Tom Brady in the sixth round. However, Mac Jones could be ready to return for this game after missing the last three with his ankle injury, as could Damien Harris (hamstring). The matchup would be particularly advantageous for the latter and backfield Rhamondre Stevenson, as the Bears are allowing 169 rushing yards per game in their last three contests and 5.2 yards per rush attempt on the road overall. Although New England is far from a powerhouse, the Pats were favored by a hefty 7.5-8 points when looking at NFL Week 7 odds on Monday.
