The Denver Broncos were just one-point favorites against the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday, but they would have covered a point spread as they rolled to a win in a game that was at halftime. Thankfully, numerous matchups on the rest of the Week 7 NFL slate look far more interesting, including battles between the No. We'll take a look at those two games and all of the others in this week's betting guide with some moneyline picks, picks against the spread, value bets and more.
Tennessee Titans vs. Detroit Lions -3 at Miami Dolphins. However, they crushed the New England Patriots and beat the Green Bay Packers in a game they were winning Their fifth game was a nail-biter with the Dallas Cowboys that could have gone either way, but running back Ezekiel Elliott torched Detroit for yards from scrimmage. The Miami Dolphins are but have been outscored by 15 points overall.
They would be if they didn't blow a lead to the Cincinnati Bengals in which the team gave up two defensive touchdowns in the fourth quarter. However, they just upset the Chicago Bears, who were playing fantastic defense before allowing 31 points Sunday. The Dolphins are starting backup Brock Osweiler, who struggled in and 21 interceptions, 20 touchdowns, That being said, Osweiler just tossed three touchdowns alongside passing yards against one of the better defenses in the league, so maybe something has changed.
Regardless, this is a tough game to call against the spread or outright. The Washington Redskins have some key offensive players on the injury report. Wide receiver Paul Richardson is doubtful with knee and shoulder injuries, and wide receiver Jamison Crowder will miss his second straight game with an ankle sprain.
Lastly, running back Chris Thompson is questionable with a rib injury. He practiced on a limited basis Thursday and Friday. If Richardson can't go and Thompson is out or limited, then Washington could be in some trouble Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, who have not allowed more than 24 points in a game. Linebackers Leighton Vander Esch and Jaylon Smith have come on strong to help a Demarcus Lawrence-led defense rank second in points allowed per game.
But Dallas has a few problems, even though Elliott is having another dominant season yards from scrimmage, four touchdowns. First, the Cowboys are on the road and haven't scored more than 16 points in any of those contests. Second, the pass game is still struggling: Only one player wideout Cole Beasley is averaging more than 30 receiving yards per game through six weeks.
That could be a problem against a Washington defense that ranks sixth in yards allowed per pass attempt. The Los Angeles Chargers are 6. That would mean more time for Dion Lewis in the backfield. The ex-New England Patriot has caught 23 passes this season, while Henry has only four receptions. Tennessee has scored just 12 points in its last two games, while the Chargers are and riding a three-game win streak.
If the above game script rings true, then Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota may stay busy. He hasn't seen much success in the air this year in fairness, he's battled through an elbow injury that forced him to miss one game and parts of two others , but Mariota can clear The Chargers have allowed yards per game this year, which ranks just 17th in the league. He's also averaged The Tennessee offense may not be particularly efficient Sunday, but Mariota could still throw for passing yards or more.
Getting five points for the Carolina Panthers is enticing, even if they are on the road against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. The Panthers are a solid team with wins over the Dallas Cowboys and Cincinnati Bengals on their resume.
They also just brought back tight end Greg Olsen and linebacker Thomas Davis, who were out due to a foot injury and a suspension, respectively. One has to wonder if the Panthers would still be getting 4. Instead, they fell The Eagles have been up and down all year. They did just crush the New York Giants, but Big Blue is , and the Eagles couldn't stop running back Saquon Barkley, who amassed yards from scrimmage.
That may foreshadow issues with running back Christian McCaffrey, who isn't on Barkley's level but is also adept at rushing and receiving. Furthermore, offensive tackle Lane Johnson is battling an ankle injury. Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has been inconsistent: He's thrown for or more yards three times and or fewer yards three times.
One of those better passing games comes with an asterisk as he had five turnovers in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. The Jags are also without running back Leonard Fournette, who is out with a hamstring injury.
The Houston Texans run game has not done well just 3. That's not a good sign considering Watson's mobility helps him evade oncoming pass-rushers. However, the best offensive player on either side is wideout DeAndre Hopkins, who has 44 catches for yards and three scores. He has a tough matchup with the Jacksonville defense, but likewise, the Jags defense may not be able to slow him down much. Ultimately, Houston has won three straight, while the Jags have lost their last two by a combined score of The two teams are going in different directions, so back the Texans plus the four points.
If a game's spread moves off a total of three points, that's notable. It's the most common scoring deficit in league history, as noted by Eldorado. A half point in either direction perhaps symbolizes that sharp bettors have strong confidence in one side. It's an interesting shift considering the Patriots' play over the last three weeks. Meanwhile, the Bears defense is coming off an ugly performance, giving up 31 points to the Dolphins and backup quarterback Brock Osweiler. Chicago allowed touchdowns of 75 and 43 yards to wideout Albert Wilson, and Osweiler threw for yards.
Perhaps sharp bettors feel Chicago's performance was an anomaly, or that the Patriots' offense may come back to Earth following three great weeks. Or maybe they think edge-rusher Khalil Mack five sacks in five games could single-handedly win this game. Regardless of the reasoning, this game is one to watch on Sunday.
The game started with a massive total of That could foreshadow another shootout involving the Chiefs, whose offense has posted no fewer than 23 points in any game. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes has thrown for 18 touchdowns, running back Kareem Hunt has yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns, and wideout Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce have combined for 67 catches, 1, yards and nine touchdowns through the air.
Football Outsiders ranks the Chiefs No. The Bengals offense is excellent as well. Of note, Joe Mixon 4. In the pass game, quarterback Andy Dalton has two great weapons in wideouts A. A beloved national treasure, Hammerin' Hank Goldberg enters NFL Week 7 on a stunning run: Over the final 10 weeks of last season and through six weeks this season, he is on his NFL best bets, an amazing 65 percent cash rate.
This is the same handicapper who enjoyed 15 winning seasons in his year ESPN run. Anyone who has followed him is way up. If you parlay them, you could be looking at a payout. You can only see them here. Drew Brees , whose arm strength is being questioned at age 41, won't have his top two receivers for this NFC South showdown. Moreover, the Saints are giving up 30 points per game. Even though New Orleans is coming off a bye, Hammer believes the Panthers are underrated under first-year coach Matt Rhule.
Carolina has covered three of its past four games overall, not to mention four of the past five in this series. There are far safer teams to back with your NFL football picks. Hammer, who has inside sources throughout the league, also jumped on two other games -- Packers vs. Texans and Buccaneers vs. In one of those games, Hammer says, there is a complete mismatch, creating a spread that's way off.
You can only see his best bets here.
Matchup must-reads: Stefanski: If healthy, Mayfield is Browns' starter Bengals' Green happy to "feel like my old self again" Why Burrow's deep struggles shouldn't be concern for Bengals. What to watch for: It will be all eyes on Washington's defensive line versus Dallas' offensive line. The Cowboys might have backups across the board, depending on guard Zack Martin 's health. And Washington's strength remains its line, though after combining for seven sacks in the opener, this group has recorded only six in the past five weeks.
Sunday is a chance for it to get healthy. And with Dallas likely paying close attention to edge rushers Montez Sweat and Chase Young , the interior could have a bigger day. Bold prediction: The Cowboys will intercept a Kyle Allen pass. He has been intercepted at least once in nine of his past 11 starts after not getting picked off in the first five starts of his career.
So far this season, the Cowboys have one interception -- Chidobe Awuzie intercepted Jared Goff in the third quarter of the season opener. They have gone pass attempts since without a pick. That has to change, and Allen has shown the tendency to throw it to the other team. Stat to know: Washington wide receiver Terry McLaurin has 56 targets this season, tied for fifth in the league.
Injuries: Cowboys Washington. What to know for fantasy: Very quietly, Washington running back J. McKissic has improved his weekly positional rank each week this season and was the 12th-best running back in Week 6. Matchup must-reads: Six games in, McCarthy facing key juncture of Cowboys' tenure Rivera gambling his moves will pay off for Washington Cowboys' Elliott says there's no one thing that will fix fumbling woes A four-win NFC East champ?
How it could happen, plus predictions from our staff Washington's Allen shows flashes, but must shake inconsistency. What to watch for: Who, exactly, will be playing offensive line for the Raiders, whose entire starting O-line is on the COVID list after right tackle Trent Brown tested positive this week?
Bold prediction: Tampa Bay running back Ronald Jones will have yards rushing, and the offense as a whole will score four times. The Bucs have scored the second-most points in the NFL this season and face a Raiders defense that has given up 30 or more points in four of five games. With almost all of Tom Brady 's receiving weapons returning to health -- most notably Chris Godwin -- these numbers aren't too much to ask from this group, although the Tampa Bay defense, like last weekend, will likely be the real difference-maker.
Stat to know: The Buccaneers allow a league-low Injuries: Buccaneers Raiders. What to know for fantasy: Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans has a total of four catches and 14 yards in the three games in which Godwin has been active. Betting nugget: The over is in Las Vegas games this season. Matchup must-reads: What Brady's jerseys have meant to him and lessons he's learned along the way Raiders' Jacobs becoming better all-around back under Allen's tutelage Carr, MVP candidate? A Raiders bye-week progress report.
What to watch for: Will the Broncos make rushing yards matter? The best, and perhaps only, defense against Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is keeping the ball away from him. The idea that you can pound away to win can be a tough sell, but the Chiefs have not defended the run well much of the season. They've allowed at least rushing yards four times and over yards twice -- but have lost just one of those games. Snow could be in the forecast, and the Broncos' best chance to win will be a run game paired with some play-action shots down the field.
Bold prediction: The Broncos will score multiple touchdowns. OK, that might not sound like a bold prediction, but they haven't scored even one in their past seven quarters against the Chiefs. Stat to know: Mahomes has had multiple passing touchdowns in each of the first six games of the season, making him the first Chief in history to do so. Injuries: Chiefs Broncos. Betting nugget: Denver is ATS as an underdog this season. Matchup must-reads: Chiefs can't wait to add Bell to a loaded offensive lineup Why Broncos' Lock needs to learn to play it safe sometimes Why have the Chiefs pumped the brakes on Hardman?
Much-maligned Broncos tackle Bolles is What to watch for: The Patriots have turned the ball over seven times in their past two games, both losses. The 49ers have created just six takeaways all season. If the Patriots continue to be sloppy with the football, they could be looking at back-to-back regular-season home losses for the first time since the season.
Bold prediction: New England quarterback Cam Newton will rush for plus yards. Believe it or not, Newton has only four such games in his career and hasn't hit the yard mark since But the 49ers have struggled to contain mobile quarterbacks, allowing rushing yards to QBs so far this season, most in the NFL. Stat to know: 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is averaging 7.
Injuries: 49ers Patriots. What to know for fantasy: Is Julian Edelman overrated in fantasy? The most recent time the Pats wideout finished as a top wide receiver was Week 2. Matchup must-reads: Garoppolo has questions to answer three years after trade Analytics supported Belichick going for 2 in Patriots' defeat Belichick effusive in praise for "great" TE Kittle Patriots QB Newton says "no need to press the panic button" after loss to Broncos. What to watch for: It's Justin Herbert vs.
Gardner Minshew -- if Minshew plays, that is. He might be benched in favor of Mike Glennon. Herbert recalled facing Minshew in college, when he was at Oregon and Minshew was under center for Washington State. It's an interesting battle of rookie QBs. Per research by the Elias Sports Bureau, Herbert needs passing yards to have the fifth most in a player's first five career games.
And Minshew is coming off five consecutive games with plus pass attempts, the longest streak in Jaguars history. That would mark the sixth consecutive game in a single season in which they've allowed 30 points. The Chargers have scored 58 points in their past two games, and as Herbert gets more comfortable, he'll thrive against a Jaguars defense that struggles to rush the passer. Stat to know: Jacksonville running back James Robinson has yards and four touchdowns from scrimmage this season, both second among rookies TDs is tied for second.
Injuries: Jaguars Chargers. What to know for fantasy: Dak Prescott was the only quarterback to outscore Herbert in Weeks the Chargers were on bye last weekend. Matchup must-reads: Jaguars' Marrone won't rule out sitting Minshew Young Chargers hope bye week helps them blast off under Herbert Marrone: No plans to fire DC Wash Bye week shift might be a rare good break for the Chargers Aaron Lynch ending retirement to join Jaguars.
What to watch for: Cardinals linebacker Dennis Gardeck didn't have a sack last weekend after posting two in Week 5 in his defensive debut. Watch for him to be a consistent presence in the Cardinals' pass rush and get a sack of Seattle's Russell Wilson. Bold prediction: Something ridiculous will happen. It usually does when the Seahawks play at State Farm Stadium.
There was the inexplicable tie in , the Thursday night game in in which the Legion of Boom came undone with injuries to Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor, and then the game in which Earl Thomas flipped the bird as he was carted off.
Oh yeah, it's also where Malcolm Butler picked off Wilson to rip a second straight Super Bowl out of the Seahawks' hands. So what's next? How about Wilson leading another game-winning drive and hitting No. He needs three to tie the record for the most through a team's first six games Peyton Manning, 22 in He would be the first player ever with six such games through a team's first seven games of a season. Injuries: Seahawks Cardinals. What to know for fantasy: Don't forget how much potential these Seattle wide receivers have.
In each of the first three weeks this season, both DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett were top performers at the position. Betting nugget: The Cardinals are the only team to have every game go under this season. Drake motivated by mom Defense leaking, Wilson cooking: Five numbers on Seahawks' start Why Cardinals' Hopkins honors Vesey on his helmet. Monday, p. So it should come as no surprise that these teams each boast a stout defense, with the Rams allowing an average of 19 points per game to the Bears' However, the Rams have an edge on offense, scoring an average of four more points per game than the Bears.
Bold prediction: Donald will sack Bears quarterback Nick Foles three times. The interior of the Bears' offensive line is suspect, especially after starting left guard James Daniels went on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. Last weekend, Foles took some big hits because of faulty protection but managed to get rid of the football.
The year-old veteran quarterback will not be as lucky on Monday night versus Donald, who is the league's premier defensive lineman. Stat to know: This is the fifth time in the past 30 years that the Bears have started or better , , and They made the playoffs in all but one of those seasons Injuries: Bears Rams.
What to know for fantasy: Chicago running back David Montgomery has 11 catches in the two games following Tarik Cohen's injury. The Falcons are 28th in points allowed While I consider this more of a fade against the Falcons rather than a play on the Lions, I do think Detroit is undervalued. The Lions held double-digit leads in every game this season, allowing comebacks against the Bears, Packers and Saints. Carolina is already averaging a higher yards per play 6. Kickoff: p. Los Angeles allows only Robinson has been one of the most efficient pass-catching backs in the league, ranking fifth in receptions 23 and third in receiving yards The Chargers pass defense has been strong, but there are areas to exploit.
Los Angeles will still be without slot cornerback Chris Harris foot , leaving Keelan Cole and rookie Laviska Shenault with high-floor potential. Per our Bet Labs data, a bettor would have seen a Quarterback Justin Herbert has seven touchdowns with only one interception in the past two games, translating to the overall QB9 and QB4 performances.
The Chargers will get a fully healthy Keenan Allen, which should be a big help to their passing attack. Allen torched Carolina in Week 3 for 13 receptions on 19 targets with receiving yards and a touchdown. Big-play outside receiver Mike Williams has also generated an early connection with Herbert, with two touchdowns and receiving yards against the Saints. Suffering through injuries on both sides of the ball, the Chargers have struggled to put teams away, even while scoring points.
Both offenses should find success, causing me to back the over in a high-scoring battle. The high-scoring potential of this game is in the shadow of other big Week 7 contests. I would take this side down to 7 and the total up to 50 points. Sports Betting. Best Books. Pictured: Gardner Minshew. Action Network Staff. Download App.
Every week, I break down my favorite bets while weaving in a preview of exclusive data from BetQL, a web and app platform that simplifies the research process for sports bettors by equipping them with real-time line movements, value bets of the day, and meaningful team trends. So far, my recommendations have gone All data presented is as of Thursday morning.
Further, Seattle has gone ATS in its last 13 games directly after gaining 6. Plus, the Seahawks have gone ATS in their past 22 contests immediately following a home game in which both teams scored plus points. In '19, that increased to While the Browns are and the Bengals are , Cincinnati has lost a number of close games in Week 1 against the Chargers on the road, against the Browns in Cleveland in Week 2, and to the Colts in Week 6.
The Browns rank 30th in scoring defense and allow At home, I really like Cincinnati here, as Baker Mayfield is seemingly a couple bad quarters away from losing his starting job permanently. The Falcons have run March can be an exciting time for football fans. We have eight competitive teams thanks to some recent switches under center, and only the one-loss Orlando Apollos seem to have any sort of significant edge on the competition.
Aaron Murray took a step back in Week 6 by converting his 41 pass attempts into yards 5. The Legends are also fairly healthy, though neither offensive lineman Parker Collins ankle nor safety Tyson Granham neck managed to practice on Thursday. Wide receiver Ervin Phillips groin and running back Lawrence Pittman ankle are also banged up, but are tentatively expected to suit up.
The worst news for Atlanta: Starting left tackle Brandon Pertile was placed on the injured reserve list and is out indefinitely. This line feels several points too low. The Apollos played their sloppiest football of the year in Week 6 and still were an ill-timed false start away from snatching a last-second victory. Meanwhile, Atlanta has already lost by 31, 16, 12 and The latter came against the Apollos in Week 1, and I expect the better team to once again comfortably emerge victorious.
He appears to be back to full health after dealing with an early-season hamstring injury and has grown more comfortable throwing downfield. The Commanders are rolling and finished their four-game road trip with a decisive victory over Aaron Murray and Co. The Stallions offense has kept itself pretty much fully healthy since losing Oliver indefinitely, while the defense is only dealing with injuries to defensive back Cody Brown knee , linebacker Gionni Paul ankle and defensive lineman Mike Purcell wrist and game-changer Karter Schult rib.
The Commanders have the worst pass and rush defense in terms of yards per attempt and carry allowed. The Commanders have been playing their best ball as of late, but the Stallions have at least managed to keep pretty much all of their games close this season win-or-lose and regardless of the opponent. Things turned out the best for the offense when Bercovici targeted Dontez Ford, who converted his three receptions into scoreless-yards before leaving the game early with an ankle injury.
The Hotshots managed to prevent Steve Spurrier and Co. Orlando finished with more first downs 27 vs. The areas where the Hotshots did win were turnovers 0 vs. John Wolford helped lead the Hotshots to success in both of those categories, completing of passes for yards and a touchdown. Jhurell Pressley 13 carries , Tim Cook 11 and Justin Stockton 12 had double-digit carries, although Pressley continued to dominate snaps.
The Fleet could be without their spark-plug receiver Dontez Ford, who was unable to practice Wednesday and remains in a walking boot. San Diego is otherwise believed to be approaching full health. Arizona has a few more question marks to worry about, as studs Rashad Ross shoulder and running back Jhurell Pressley wrist were limited in practice to start the week.
The good news is both have seemingly been playing through these injuries and are tentatively expected to suit up come game time. The Hotshots have mostly only been able to create big plays via downfield passes to Ross, although their offense has also managed to consistently move the ball on the ground.
