Top NFL Games To Bet On During Week 7

With the wins by the Washington Redskins and NY Jets, the Cincinnati Bengals and Miami Dolphins remain as the only two teams without a victory in the 2019 NFL season.

The NFL Week 7 will have six divisional matchups and four games between teams holding a winning record.

We also enter this week with Russell Wilson as the new favorite to win the MVP at +200, with Patrick Mahomes a step behind at +250. Let’s dive into the NFL week 7 betting odds and analysis.

Kansas City Chiefs (4-2) Vs. Denver Broncos (2-4)

Chiefs vs. Broncos
-170 Moneyline +150
-3.5 (-115) Spread +3.5 (-105)
O 48.5 (-110) Total U 48.5 (-110)
Bet On Chiefs vs. Broncos NFL Week 7 Game At

It’s fair to say the Chiefs are in trouble. The team looked banged up in key positions, have lost two in a row, and must play a divisional opponent during a short week.

Kansas City has been outplayed 77:03 against 42:57 in time of possession in the last two losses to Indianapolis and Houston.

Their defense is the third-worst against the run, and they are about to face a Denver Broncos team that average 116.0 rushing yards per game.

The Chiefs opened -3 but now are -3.5 at MyBookie. 63% of the betting public is siding with Kansas City.

Los Angeles Rams (3-3) Vs. Atlanta Falcons (1-5)

Rams vs. Falcons
-155 Moneyline +135
-3 (-110) Spread +3 (-110)
O 54.5 (-110) Total U 54.5 (-110)
Bet On Rams vs. Falcons NFL Week 7 Game At

After starting the season 3-0, the Rams have dropped three in a row, and two of those losses were against divisional opponents.

The defense has allowed 35.0 points per game in the last three outings. They recently put CB Aqib Talib on Injury Reserve and traded CB Marcus Peters to Baltimore.

The good news is they traded for CB Jalen Ramsey, who is one of the top three players at his position.

Atlanta’s defense has been just as awful. The team is on a four-game skid allowing 34.5 points per game in the last four outings. The game total can’t be high enough for this one.

Miami Dolphins (0-5) Vs. Buffalo Bills (4-1)

Dolphins vs. Bills
+780 Moneyline -1275
+17 (-110) Spread -17 (-110)
O 40.5 (-110) Total U 40.5 (-110)
Bet On Dolphins vs. Bills NFL Week 7 Game At

The Bills opened -17.5 and now are -17.5 over the Dolphins this week. I don’t recall seeing Buffalo that much of a favorite since the Jim Kelly days.

Buffalo should be 5-1 after week seven, which means they would have the second-best record in the entire AFC, only behind the Patriots.

Miami already decided Ryan Fitzpatrick will be the starter for this game. Josh Rosen was pulled from the meeting against Washington as the coaching staff was looking for a spark on offense.

Jacksonville Jaguars (2-4) Vs. Cincinnati Bengals (0-6)

Jaguars vs. Bengals
-200 Moneyline +170
-3 (-110) Spread  +3 (-110)
O 44 (-110) Total U 44 (-110)
Bet On Jaguars vs. Bengals NFL Week 7 Game At

We have been talking a lot about Miami’s plan to tank for Tua, but Cincinnati is lowkey just as bad. They are trying to win, and somehow, they haven’t succeeded yet.

The Jaguars have lost two straight but opened -3 on the road over Cincinnati. The line shouldn’t move much before the game.

Jags QB Gardner Minshew is coming off his worst game of the season, throwing for 163 yards and one interception in the home loss to the Saints.

 Minnesota Vikings (4-2) Vs. Detroit Lions (2-2-1)

Vikings vs. Lions
-125 Moneyline +105
-1 (-110) Spread +1 (-110)
O 45.5 (-110) Total U 45.5 (-110)
Bet On Vikings vs. Lions NFL Week 7 Game At

The Vikings have won two in a row since their wideouts called out QB Kirk Cousins. He has completed 44 passes and has missed just 12 in the last two wins.

He has also thrown six of his eight touchdowns in those victories. The Lions are on a short week after a heartbreaking loss to Green Bay on Monday.

If Detroit had won the game at Lambeau Field, they would be at the top of the NFC North. Instead, they are dead last in a very tight division.

This game opened as a pick’em, but quickly it moved to Vikings -1. I don’t think it will be back as a PK, if anything, it should climb more in favor of Minnesota.

+6.5 (-110) Spread -6.5 (-110)
O 46.5 (-110) Total U 46.5 (-110)
Bet On Raiders vs. Packers NFL Week 7 Game At

The Raiders had a bye week last week, and they will be rested when facing the Packers. Green Bay, instead, will be on a short week.

Before the week of rest, the Raiders took down the Colts and Bears, both times on the road. They will be on the road against the Packers and Texans in one of the most exhausting parts of their schedule.

The Packers want to have WR Davante Adams back for this game, but he might be a game-time decision.

Adams has been battling a turf toe injury and has missed two straight games. The team is limited at the wideout position.

+1 (-110) Spread -1 (-110)
O 47.5 (-110) Total U 47.5 (-110)
Bet On Texans vs. Colts NFL Week 7 Game At

The Texans recently recorded the best win in Deshaun Watson’s era, beating the Chiefs in Arrowhead.

The key to Houston’s success has been keeping a clean pocket for Watson. Over the last two wins against Atlanta and Kansas City, the quarterback was not sacked once.

The last defeat against Carolina saw him getting sacked six times in that game alone. Indianapolis is coming off a bye week with lots to prove.

Their last outing was also a win on the road against Kansas City, but the team is still looking for consistency on offense. The Colts are currently -1 at after the betting line opened as a pick’em.

Cardinals vs. Giants
+135 Moneyline -155
+3 (-110) Spread -3 (-110)
O 49 (-110) Total U 49 (-110)
Bet On Cardinals vs. Giants NFL Week 7 Game At

The battle for offensive rookie of the year might be decided in this game. Kyler Murray and Daniel Jones will go head to head to prove who the better rookie QB is.

Murray and the Cards come into NY with two wins in a row. Jones and the Giants have lost two straight. Kyler is the favorite to win the OROY award at +160, and Daniel is third at +400.

In between is Gardner Minshew at +250. The Giants are listed -3, just as the betting line opened. There is no reason to see movement on the odds for this game.

49ers vs. Redskins
-420 Moneyline +355
-10 (-110) Spread +10 (-110)
O 41.5 (-110) Total U 41.5 (-110)
Bet On 49ers vs. Redskins NFL Week 7 Game At

Last week, the Niners recorded their best win of the season while the Redskins their only win of the year.

Washington hasn’t won at home this season after three tries. The new head coach Bill Callahan hasn’t confirmed his starting QB for this weekend, but Case Keenum has the lead.

San Francisco is second in the league averaging 179.8 rushing yards per game. However, they also have three giveaways in the red zone in their first five games, second-most in the NFL.

Los Angeles Chargers (2-4) Vs. Tennessee Titans (2-4)

Chargers vs. Titans
+110 Moneyline -130
+2 (-110) Spread -2 (-110)
O 40 (-110) Total U 40 (-110)
Bet On Chargers vs. Titans NFL Week 7 Game At

The Titans named Ryan Tannehill as the starting quarterback for week seven. Marcus Mariota lost his job after the team scored seven points in the last two games combined.

I would expect Ryan Tannehill to be a little better leading this offense. Tennessee is -2 at after the game opened with the Titans -1.

The last three losses the Chargers have suffered were playing at home. Their offense has been struggling to score. Los Angeles averages 15.0 points per game in their previous two outings.

Saints vs. Bears
+150 Moneyline -170
+3 (-110) Spread -3 (-110)
O 38 (-110) Total U 38 (-110)
Bet On Saints vs. Bears NFL Week 7 Game At

The last report about Mitch Trubisky is the quarterback returned to practice on Monday, but his status for the game against New Orleans is uncertain.

“It’s seeing exactly where he’s at with the pain,” head coach Matt Nagy said via the Chicago Tribune.

“Just all of us collaborating to see where he is so we can make a decision as to which way we want to go for this week.”

On defense, the Bears suffered a painful loss this week. The team announced they put DT Akiem Hicks on IR due to an elbow injury.

Without Hicks, the Bears defense should have a lot of problems stopping the run. The Saints have four straights since they lost QB Drew Brees to injury.

It must be the best head coaching job Sean Payton has done in his career. Plus, let’s not forget the Saints are blessed.

Ravens vs. Seahawks
+150 Moneyline -170
+3.5 (-110) Spread -3.5 (-110)
O 49.5 (-110) Total U 49.5 (-110)
Bet On Ravens vs. Seahawks NFL Week 7 Game At

The game between the Ravens and Seahawks will be focused on two of the best scrambling quarterbacks in the NFL when Lamar Jackson faces Russell Wilson.

But let’s not forget this is the return of Safety Earl Thomas to Seattle after spending the last nine seasons with the Seahawks.

The Ravens added CB Marcus Peters in a trade this week. Peters is expected to be on the field, but how much would they use him remains to be seen.

Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) Vs. Dallas Cowboys (3-3)

Eagles vs. Cowboys
+125 Moneyline -145
+3 (-110) Spread -3 (-110)
O 49 (-110) Total U 49 (-110)
Bet On Eagles vs. Cowboys NFL Week 7 Game At

The top of the NFC East will be at stake when the Eagles and Cowboys battle to get out of a .500 record.

Philadelphia’s secondary defense is one of the biggest disappointments of the season. The Eagles have the fourth-worst passing defense in the NFL, only behind awful teams like the Cardinals, Giants, and Buccaneers.

The Cowboys can’t be proud of themselves either. Dallas has lost three straight, and their pass rush defense is a problem averaging just 2.3 sacks per game this season.

To make it worse, they lost DE Tyrone Crawford for the rest of the season with a hip injury. Keep mind there is a guaranteed statement on this game.

New England Patriots (6-0) Vs. NY Jets (1-4)

Patriots vs. Jets
-455 Moneyline +365
-10 (-110) Spread +10 (-110)
O 42.5 (-110) Total U 42.5 (-110)
Bet On Patriots vs. Jets NFL Week 7 Game At

The New England Patriots opened -10.5, but the betting line for this MNF matchup is at -10 now.
The Patriots enter this game with 11 days of rest after playing against the NY Giants on Thursday Night during week six.

This is the fifth time New England is a double-digit favorite this season. Pats’ DE Michael Bennett was suspended last week after having a heated discussion with the D-line coach Bret Bielema. Bennett should be available for Monday night.

The Jets placed guard Kelechi Osemele on Injury Reserve. He’s set to have a shoulder injury. The team is still is waiting to see the evolution of LT Kelvin Beachum (sprained ankle).

He hasn’t been ruled out but might be a game-time decision.
