NFL Week 7 Betting Picks
Week 5 was a bit more unpredictable around the NFL than Week 4, and there are a few tossup games in Week 6 that could create even more chaos. What could that mean for Week 7’s lines?
Let’s take a look at the early Week 7 odds and which bets to place early.
Indianapolis Colts (+2.5) vs. Cleveland Browns
The Browns’ season has turned into another Deshaun Watson saga. Nobody seems to know how serious his shoulder injury is — he was originally supposed to be fine after the team’s bye but didn’t come close to playing against the 49ers. There are conflicting reports regarding his status for Week 7 vs. the Colts.
The Browns have a terrific defense, but this is a quarterback-driven league. P.J. Walker (or Dorian Thompson-Robinson) on the road against a Colts team playing hard and looking no worse with Gardner Minshew does not inspire confidence.
Colts +2.5 or Colts moneyline might be worth locking in early, before reports definitively cast doubt on Watson’s status in Indianapolis.
Washington Commanders Moneyline (-120) vs. New York Giants
The Commanders have been playing some rough defense of late, but betting against the Giants makes plenty of sense with this line pretty close to even. New York’s offensive line has been a disaster, and with Chase Young playing well already, this matchup could be a nice opportunity for a Commanders defensive line brimming with talent to find its footing.
Washington has been allowing an unsustainable amount of sacks itself, but the offense has a favorable matchup against a weak Falcons pass-rush this week. If the Commanders can protect Howell decently against the Falcons, they should absolutely win considering the way he’s been throwing the ball.
A win in Atlanta would be enough to make Washington a clearer favorite in this matchup, particularly with the Giants destined for a bad loss to the Bills in Week 6.
Buffalo Bills (-8.5) vs. New England Patriots
Foxborough was once a tough place to play, but that simply isn’t the reality of the Patriots’ situation anymore. The Bills have won big against truly inferior opponents this season, and that’s what New England is right now.
After a disappointing showing in London last week, Buffalo is poised for a resounding win over the Giants in Week 6. If the offense gets back on track, this line could push toward 10 points.
The Patriots can’t prove much in Week 6 to move this line in their direction. A win over the Raiders in Las Vegas would likely be an ugly one, and a loss would certainly dim an already grim outlook for a fallen dynasty.
Pittsburgh Steelers (+3) vs. Los Angeles Rams
The Steelers proved in Week 5 that they just can’t be counted out even when their offense is at its worst. Defense helped guide Pittsburgh to a comeback win over the Ravens, and it’s no surprise Kenny Pickett struggled (for the most part) against a Baltimore defense that is allowing the fewest yards per pass attempt in the league. The Rams’ pass defense has been near the middle of the pack, which makes it a much softer landing spot for a healthier Pickett.
The Steelers’ defense, meanwhile, isn’t going anywhere. The Rams have a few things to be excited about – mainly their receiving corps – but Pittsburgh’s pass rush could force Matthew Stafford into some bad decisions.
The Steelers are on a bye in Week 6, but the Rams are favored by a touchdown against the Cardinals. If the Cards play as hard as they have all season and dial up pressure as they usually do, they can keep the game competitive and lessen confidence in the Rams going into Week 7.
