NFL Week 7 Picks

Denver Broncos vs Cleveland Browns @ FirstEnergy Stadium

The Browns have been hit hard by injuries, and we’re not sure they’ll recover in time to face the Broncos.

Denver is riding a three-game losing streak, so it’s desperate for a victory. However, they won’t get a better chance to beat the Browns at home than on Friday.

Take the underdog value.

Betting tip: Denver Broncos

Buccaneers by 10

Washington Football Team vs Green Bay Packers @ Lambeau Field

We’re not expecting much defence to be played, which should favour Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

After looking awful in their opening game, they have rattled off five consecutive wins. It has been an impressive comeback, and we expect their winning ways to continue.

The Packers are good enough to cover the –7.5 spread.

Betting tip: Green Bay Packers –7.5

Packers by 12

Kansas City Chiefs vs Tennessee Titans @ Nissan Stadium

Derrick Henry continues to dominate at the running back position, and he could have a field day against the Chiefs defence.

We’re not sure how the Titans beat the Buffalo Bills last week, but it was a fine defensive effort in the fourth quarter.

Kansas City held Washington to no points in the second half, but the defence still has its worries. We think there is value with the Titans in this situation.

Betting tip: Tennessee Titans +4.5

Titans by 3

Atlanta Falcons vs Miami Dolphins @ Hard Rock Stadium

There isn’t much going in favor of the Miami Dolphins, and the Falcons could take advantage on Monday.

The Falcons are 2-3, so there is some hope with Matty Ice and his talented receivers. They need to start playing more consistently, but they get a chance here.

Bookmakers have Atlanta as favourites, which isn’t surprising.

Betting tip: Atlanta Falcons

Falcons by 6

New York Jets vs New England Patriots @ Gillette Stadium

The Jets could cause an upset over the Patriots, despite being winless on the road in three attempts.

They are growing in confidence, and punters get a good price to take. They are paying $3.70 to win the game outright, and +7.5 in points spread markets.

New England has yet to win in four attempts at Gillette Stadium, and we think those troubles continue.

Betting tip: New York Jets +7.5

Jets by 7

Carolina Panthers vs New York Giants @ MetLife Stadium

New York is struggling with injuries to its best players, and beating the Panthers could prove difficult.

The Panthers are also dealing their injuries, especially to running back Christian McCaffery, but they are the stronger team at 3-3.

Putting our faith in the Giants never ends well, so take the more secure bet.

Betting tip: Carolina Panthers

Panthers by 7

Cincinnati Bengals vs Baltimore Ravens @ M&T Bank Stadium

The Ravens turned on the jets against the Chargers last week, and that is an excellent form guide.

They have now improved to 5-1 and 3-0 at home, so there is plenty of betting market confidence with the Ravens this week.

Cincinnati isn’t a bad team, but with Lamar Jackson firing on all cylinders, he’ll be tough to stop.

Betting tip: Baltimore Ravens –6.5

Ravens by 10

Philadelphia Eagles vs Las Vegas Raiders @ Allegiant Stadium

We haven’t been impressed with the Eagles this season, and despite the Raiders going through turmoil, we like them to win.

Coach Jon Gruden has been axed from the team, which isn’t ideal for the 4-2 team that was starting to get traction in the NFL. However, Derek Carr is playing well and he could lead this team to a victory.

Jalen Hurts is struggling for Philadelphia, and we don’t like their defence one bit.

Betting tip: Las Vegas Raiders

Raiders by 7

Detroit Lions vs Los Angeles Rams @ SoFi Stadium

The Lions have yet to win a game and we don’t see that changing on Monday against the Rams.

Los Angeles is 5-1 and looking strong to make a deep playoff run with Matthew Stafford at the helm. They are 2-1 at home, and they’re capable of covering the big spread.

Bookmakers have the Rams at –16.5, which is sizable, but there is little market confidence with the Lions, and rightfully so.

Betting tip: Los Angeles Rams –16.5

Rams by 23

Houston Texans vs Arizona Cardinals @ State Farm Arena

Arizona is one of the best teams in the competition and the 6-0 record reflects that. The Cardinals have looked incredible, and they are being led by Kyler Murray.

He has recorded 1741 yards for 14 touchdowns, so he has been excellent in the pocket and outside of the pocket. His ability to escape makes him a dual threat quarterback.

Houston isn’t expected to compete, so take the Cardinals to score a comfortable win.

Betting tip: Arizona Cardinals –17.5

Cardinals by 24

Chicago Bears vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Raymond James Stadium

Sitting pretty with a 5-1 record, defending champions Tampa Bay should be too classy for the Bears.

Tom Brady is showing no signs of slowing down, and although the Bears have done well to record a 3-3 record, they should find this too tough.

We expect Brady and the high-calibre Buccaneers offence to produce the goods.

Betting tip: Tampa Bay Buccaneers –12.5

Buccaneers by 14

Indianapolis Colts vs San Francisco 49ers @ Levi’s Stadium

There is trepidation in the betting market with the 49ers, who are the favourites to win, but not by much.

They currently own a 2-3 record, but they should be well-rested and ready to fire against the Colts, who are also struggling.

Bookmakers have only four points between them, but the home side should score by at least a touchdown.

Betting tip: San Francisco 49ers -4

49ers by 10

New Orleans Saints vs Seattle Seahawks @ Lumen Field

We’re not sold on the Seahawks this season, and they’re doing it tough without Russell Wilson at the helm.

New Orleans is rested and ready to fire on the road. Jamies Winston has been hot and cold, but he’s one of the best quarterbacks when he’s on.

The Saints are $1.43 favourites to win on the road, which is a good indication of what to expect.

Betting tip: New Orleans Saints –5.5
