Jameis Winston completed 15-of-30 passes for 279 yards and four touchdowns in the Saints’ Week 5 win against Washington. Winston added 26 yards on six rushes against a Washington defense that lacked effort throughout the game. He averaged 18.6 yards per completion against a Football Team secondary that seemed confused in basic coverage situations.

Gurley totaled 19 touchdowns in an offense that led the NFL in points per game (29.9). Eli Manning threw for two touchdowns last week in the win over Houston, but it is the same old, same old for the Giants. They are averaging 87.7 yards per game on the ground, which is 25th in the NFL. Rookie Saquon Barkley did have 82 yards rushing against Houston, but the Giants need to be more consistent in running the football. The Rams have plenty of offensive weapons including QB Jared Goff and WR Brandin Cooks.

Nfl Week 7 2021: Odds For Each Game

While Sunday’s matchup should still be an interesting game, it will not be the NFC championship of a year ago. The informative post Eagles poured it on Minnesota 38-7 in earning a trip to Super Bowl LII. This time around, it will be Kirk Cousins at quarterback for the Vikings. Cousins is completing 72 percent of his passes and has two 400-yard-plus games already this season. He threw for 422 and three touchdowns in the loss to the Rams last week.

He also completed less than 60 percent of his passes on the road. Seattle has done well through the middle part of the season due to a resurgence of the running game. Even in last week’s loss to the Chargers, the Seahawks ran for 154 yards as a team.

One of the model’s strongest Week 7 NFL picks is that the Patriots (-7) cover the spread against the Jets in 60 percent of simulations. It’s been a slog for Bill Belichick since Tom Brady left for the Buccaneers, with New England going 7-9 last season and off to a 2-4 start in 2021. However, the Patriots have taken two of the best teams in the NFL to the wire and also collected a needed win over the Texans in the last three weeks. The only game last week to feature a double-digit spread was Houston at Indianapolis, where the Colts handily covered the 11.5-point margin in a 31-3 win. The Week 7 NFL schedule features six matchups with NFL spreads of 10 points or more, and the Texans are two-touchdown home underdogs this week.

Here’s a look at the complete schedule for the week, along with the odds and totals for each game. This week’s darlings are next week’s team with serious questions. They are quickly taking the mantel of the league’s worst team and don’t seem to be surrendering it anytime soon. The model compares the current point spread the sportsbook provides compared to what the expected point spread should be, and the same for point totals and moneylines.

Nfl Week 7 Underdogs: Making The Case For Six Teams To Beat The Odds

You don’t win football games when your defence can’t get off the field, and you certainly don’t score points when the opposing team holds the ball for nearly an entire quarter. Jared Goff put up career-low numbers last week throwing for only 78-yards and zero touchdowns. The good news is the Falcons are the perfect team to bounce-back against having allowed the fifth-most passing yards and the second-most touchdowns. The Chiefs have allowed the second-most rushing yards in the league behind the Bengals as well as the second-most rushing touchdowns. If you aren’t already aware, Broncos running back Phillip Lindsay has been outstanding over the last three weeks, combining for 282 scrimmage yards and four touchdowns. The Green Bay Packers are playing the Chicago Bears in Chicago at Soldier Field, and the NFL point spread is set at 7 with the Packers favored.

The Packers managed just 48 yards on the ground against the Seahawks. That will be a challenge since the Vikings own the league’s fourth-best run defense. The Steelers lost to the Broncos last week in large part because they turned the ball over three times and failed to run the football. Leading rusher James Conner, who has 849 yards for the season, had just 53. He will need to be more productive for the Steelers to have success on Sunday night.

That will not cut it against a Seattle defense that is normally pretty stout. The Rams have been more impressive averaging over 33 points a game while giving up just 13 total points in two games. Last week, the Rams shut out Arizona, 34-0, allowing the Cardinals just 137 yards of total offense and only five first downs. The Chargers are a little more dynamic on offense than the Cardinals, but if the Rams have that kind of success this coming Sunday it appears they will move to 3-0.

Essentially, next week’s lines are being offered before this week’s games even kick off. Lookahead lines offer tremendous opportunities because of the uncertainty that goes along with it. The Los Angles Rams and the Detroit Lions game is not going to be pretty either. This means that the Lions are looking to still remain winless and could head into week 8 with a 0-7 record.
