It’s time for Week 7 of the National Football League. The season has been crazy thus far, and it looks like there is not one team that is head and shoulders above the rest. Kansas City was the final unbeaten team, and they went down at home to Pittsburgh.
The same Steelers team that was blasted at home by 21 the week before by the Jaguars. The 49ers and the Browns continue to be winless, and the chances of that changing anytime soon are pretty slim. Both teams are pretty poor. Let’s turn our attention to the action on the field this weekend. Here is my NFL Betting Picks and Preview for Week 7.
Kansas City Chiefs -3 over Oakland Raiders
The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off that loss to the Steelers. Now, they take on a divisional foe in Oakland. The Raiders have dropped four straight games, and look to be lost at the moment.
Derek Carr cannot seem to get and stay healthy, and the Oakland run game is once again a mess. Look for the Chiefs to bounce back and come away with another divisional win here. The Chiefs are -3 on Thursday Night Football, and that’s the bet to make over the Raiders.
Carolina Panthers -3 over Chicago Bears
This game is in Soldier Field in Chicago. The home of the Bears. The Bears are 2-4 on the season with a home win over the Steelers, and a win on the road at the Ravens. Mitchell Trubisky is the new starting quarterback for Chicago.
He was solid in the win over Baltimore last week. For Carolina, they are 4-2, and coming off a bad loss last week against the Eagles. Look for the rested Panthers to take care of business and win this game on the road. Betting Carolina -3 is the best move.
New Orleans Saints -5.5 over Green Bay Packers
It’s hard to believe that the Green Bay Packers are nearly a 6 point underdog at home. It’s even hard to believe that they will not cover that. And with Brett Hundley behind center, it’s hard to find a scenario where they do cover that.
It was supposed to be Drew Brees against Aaron Rodgers, but with the Packers signal caller out that was put to rest. Now, the Packers will go the rest of the season without him. That’s bad new as the Saints are playing great football. Take the Saints on the road.
Arizona Cardinals +4 over Los Angeles Rams
This game is played in London. Therefore, temper your expectations about who is at home and who is on the road. It’s Jared Goff against Carson Palmer. The 4-2 Rams against the 3-3 Cardinals. Los Angeles already lost to Seattle, it cannot afford another divisional loss.
But, that’s what happens here. Arizona takes care of the ball, and gets Adrian Peterson involved once again in the offense. Take the Cardinals over the Rams in London on Sunday.
San Francisco 49ers +6.5 over Dallas Cowboys
Whether Ezekiel Elliott plays or not for Dallas, that does not matter here. The 49ers are going to compete, and possibly win this game. The Cowboys are in trouble. They are nearly a shell of what they were a season ago.
Going to rely too much on Dak Prescott, and he cannot handle the second year load quite yet. The 49ers continue to remain close in games, and do a great job of covering this spread at home.
Pittsburgh Steelers -5 over Cincinnati Bengals
The Pittsburgh Steelers bounced back well from the loss against Jacksonville. The defense was outstanding against the Chiefs in the win. Now, Big Ben, Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell get a divisional foe in town.
The Bengals are coming off their bye week. Cincinnati is 2-3 on the season, and need hope to get back to .500. Look for the Pittsburgh defense to be all over Andy Dalton and company and will their way to a win in this game.
New England Patriots -3 over Atlanta Falcons
The Sunday Night Football game features a rematch of the Super Bowl a season ago. The Falcons are still kicking themselves from blowing that 25 point lead. Just last week though, Atlanta blew a 17 point lead and lost to the Dolphins. New England seems to be playing better football with back to back wins, including a big divisional win over the Jets last week.
The Patriots are at home, and they are going to sling the ball all over the field. There is no stopping Tom Brady with this one. The Sunday Night Football win is the New England Patriots by more than a field goal at home.
Philadelphia Eagles -4 over Washington Redskins
The Monday Night Football game features Carson Wentz against Kirk Cousins. That should be a good matchup with plenty of points on the board. The better defense is going to win, due to a couple big stops.
That is the Philadelphia Eagles. One of the most well rounded teams in all of the league. Philadelphia gets the job done and continues to ride alone in first place in the NFC East.
That’s a look at the games this weekend. Best of luck with all your US sports betting. Hopefully my NFL Betting Picks and Preview for Week 7 was a great help to you, and you learned a thing or two in helping you with your betting! Enjoy the action!
