The Arizona Cardinals are the article highest favorite of the week at -17, as they’ll be facing the Houston Texans. If you took a look at Awesemo’s expert projections for Week 7, you’ll notice the Cardinals defense is projected to have more success than any other defensive unit. In what’s expected to be the highest-scoring game of the week with a total of 53, the Chargers take on the Falcons in the Georgia Dome. The Falcons continued to play really well in a close loss to the Seahawks on the road, and the Chargers finally got the monkey off their backs and closed out a W against the Broncos. The Chargers should keep pace here and make it a competitive loss.
It’s been six years, but the Chargers just might have the team to pull off a second consecutive upset. This year’s AFC title game will pit Brady against the next generation of elite quarterbacks in the Chiefs’ informative post Patrick Mahomes. In just his first full season as the Chiefs’ starter, Mahomes threw for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns. He joined Brady and Peyton Manning as the only others to ever do so. If Super Bowl LIII is anything like the conference championship games, NFL fans are in for a real treat.
The Bears once again are treated like pushover team, which is absurd considering they’ve made the playoffs in two of the last three seasons. I’m not laying these point what so ever, so at first glance this is a point or pass spot for me. With wins over the Bengals, Raiders and Lions the Bears are capable of playing buttoned up football four four quarters. Since Justin Fields took over as the starter, the Bears are 2-1, with the lone loss coming last week to Aaron Rodgers. I’m not overly in love with the Bears but I think they can hang around in this one, and I’m not laying 12.5.
- Rookie running back Dalvin Cook had 66 yards on 13 carries before leaving the game in the third quarter with an apparent knee injury.
- If the Broncos do not play well on defense, you can bet that they will lose again to the Patriots at home.
- The vaunted running game of a year ago produces just 91.5 yards per game this year.
- Geno Smith will make at least two more starts before Seattle gets Wilson back.
- The defense, especially the secondary, looked formidable through the first eight games.

The last time these two teams met, back in Week 2, the New England Patriots (2-4-0) rolled to a 25-6 win at home over the New York Jets (1-4-0). New England’s outstanding pass defense had Zach Wilson completely rattled as the rookie quarterback threw four interceptions and no touchdown passes for the Jets. The Kansas City Chiefs (3-3-0) played their best game of the season last Sunday in a win over the Washington Redskins as Patrick Mahomes passed for 397 yards and two touchdowns. The Tennessee Titans (4-2-0) beat what many believe to be the best team in the NFL this season in the Buffalo Bills as six-point underdogs.

The Bengals have won just four of their past seven games as home favourites for a loss and their record against the line is a poor 3-4. Philadelphia have regressed somewhat following their outstanding start to the season and they go into this clash with back-to-back losses against Detroit and Washington. Winning on the road has not proven to be an issue for the Vikings and they have won seven of their past eight games away from home, while they are remarkably 8-0 against the line. The Colts have won just two of their past eight games as away underdogs for a clear loss and they are against the line in this situation. The Packers have won just three of their seven games as home favorites over the past 12 months for a clear loss, while they are against the line.

Moore, the Panthers have struggled to find consistent pass-catchers, which doesn’t look to be changing anytime soon. I had some concerns about Aaron Rodgers against a potent Bears’ defense. Still, he was incredibly efficient as he completed 73.9% of his passes and threw for two touchdowns with no turnovers to finish with a near-perfect passer rating. Washington’s defense picked off Patrick Mahomes twice last week. Still, Rodgers only has three interceptions all year, but Washington ranks 11th in the NFL against WR1s in DVOA so Davante Adams could be a bit less productive. If Adams is kept in check and Rodgers is under pressure, I think Washington can do enough to limit what can be a one-dimensional Green Bay offense at times.
The Chiefs have won the last five consecutive meetings with the Raiders, including the last two at the Oakland County Coliseum. The Raiders last win over Kansas City was in November of 2014 when Oakland won at home. Chiefs RB Charcandrick West and WR Tyreek Hill are listed as questionable for Thursday night’s game.
Cleveland has won four of its last five games to move to and while they cannot win the AFC North they can achieve a wild card berth. It’s a second straight test for the Steelers which found a way to overcome their shortcomings against New England over the past few seasons to beat the Patriots last week. Now, they must face New Orleans which has already clinched the NFC South and a playoff berth. The Saints will be playing to ensure they get the NFC’s No. 1 seed in the postseason.
Nfl Betting Guide: Week 7
Cincy has dropped five straight games to the Baltimore Ravens, but all streaks have to end sometime. Over the last three weeks, Sam Darnold and Daniel Jones have combined to throw 10 interceptions and lose a fumble each. I’m no math expert, but that’s 12 turnovers between these two guys over a 21-day span.
