There are no unbeaten teams left in the NFL after the Steelers upset the Chiefs last Monday and the NFL this season is one of the more closely-contested seasons in history.
There are no teams that are sitting above the pack and bookmakers are finding it hard to install a firm favourite for the Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl favourite following round 7 might be the winner of the Falcons vs. Patriots game on Monday afternoon, which is one of many great betting games this week.
11:25am Oakland Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs
It went from bad to worse for the Oakland Raiders last week as they lost their fourth consecutive game.
Quarterback Derek Carr was rushed back into the team after his injury, but it made no difference to how they played.
It’s not about to get any easier as they face the Chiefs which will be seeking a bounce back win after losing to the Steelers. It was the Chiefs first loss of the season and although they would have been taken back a touch, they’re still in a good position.
It’s D-Day for the Raiders and they’ll be desperate to win, but we just feel as though the Chiefs have too many weapons.

4:00am Buffalo Bills vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This is a classic match-up between two teams that like to play at home, so that clearly favours the Buffalo Bills in this situation.
The Bills are 2-0 at home with wins coming against the Jets and the Broncos, but they will need to bounce back after losing to the Bengals last time out.
They have had a bye week to prepare for the Buccs’ which are riding a two-game losing streak and playing away from home hasn’t been their forte.
The odds are currently off the board, but we’re picking a Bills win.

4:00am Chicago Bears vs. Carolina Panthers
It’s tough to know what the Bears will bring each week after they upset the Ravens last week, but the Panthers will test them.
The Panthers may have lost by five points to the Eagles last week, but their wins against the Patriots and Lions prior to that loss were top quality.
The only two losses they have suffered were against pass-happy teams and Chicago is not one of them. Chicago has been getting by with a solid rushing game, but the Panthers allow only 83.3 yards per game – one of the best in the NFL.
The bookmakers have the Panthers are –3 favourites, but that line should be higher.
Betting tip: Panthers -3 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Panthers by 12
4:00am Cleveland Browns vs. Tennessee Titans
This should be a straightforward win for the Titans, which enter the game at 3-3 on the season.
The Titans scored a comeback win over the Colts last week (36-22) and they should be able to ride that momentum into Ohio where they face the 0-6 Browns.
The Browns have lost some close games this season, but there’s little to get excited about and we can’t see them improving to 1-6 against the Titans.

4:00am Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints
The Packers’ season took a massive hit last week when Aaron Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury.
Billy Hundley came in to replace Rodgers, but he’s not even close to being good enough to lead this team to success this season.
Facing the Saints won’t make it any easier as the Saints are going to pile on the points, which will put pressure on the new quarterback to throw down the field.
That’s going to play right into the hands of the Saints, which are justifiably the –5.5 favourites for this game away from home.

4:00am Indianapolis Colts vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Both the Colts and Jaguars are coming off poor losses last week, but the big question is whether Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette is going to play.
He’s currently on the disabled list, which is why the points line is only at 3. If he doesn’t play the Colts are in a good position to pick up their third win of the season as the Jaguars are an inconsistent side.
A good win over the Steelers was followed by a poor loss to the Rams and the Colts could exploit those weaknesses.
We’re smelling an upset here.

4:00am L.A Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals
The NFL returns to England where the Rams play the Cardinals in London.
The Rams looked the business when beating the Jaguars last week and the Cardinals were in top shape against the Buccs, but they did give up some late points which is the concern.
As a whole, the Rams look like a Super Bowl contender this season at 4-2 and the neutral ground this week should favour the Rams.
Carson Palmer can be the difference in a game for the Cardinals at the QB position, but this is a multi-faceted Rams side which is tough to beat.

4:00am Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets
What an incredible comeback performance from the Dolphins last week against the Falcons.
The Dolphins were down 14-0 against one of the best teams in football and they were able to score points and force the Falcons into errors.
They will need to do something similar here against the Jets, which are a simple team that relies on power defense and turnovers.
The Jets lost 24-17 to the Patriots last week, but they were a touch unlucky not to come away with the win. They played well and they have already beaten the Dolphins 20-6 earlier this season.

4:00am Minnesota Vikings vs. Baltimore Ravens
It’s tough to say whether the Vikings got lucky against the Packers last week, but either way they came away with the win.
The Ravens, on the other hand, didn’t come away with the win against the Bears. They were expected to easily handle the Bears, but they’re a mistake-ridden side which could struggle for the rest of the season.
The Vikings have had their own problems, but sitting at 4-2 is a nice place to be and home ground advantage could be key here.
Betting tip: Vikings –5.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Vikings by 14
7:05am San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys
The 49ers are one of two winless teams in the NFL and their average margin of loss is impressive.
The 49ers have lost their past five games by three points or less and that’s an incredible record which might not be surpassed.
Narrow losses to the Seahawks, Cardinals and Redskins should hold them in good stead for this, but knowing they can’t win the close games is a big worry, especially against a hungry Dallas side.
The Cowboys sit at 2-3 after a bye week following their loss to the Packers, but they should be good to go for this and they might teach the 49ers a lesson.
This could get ugly quickly for the 49ers which must be out of energy and hope.
Betting tip: Cowboys –6 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)

7:25am New York Giants vs. Seattle Seahawks
Was that the same Giants team we have been watching all season last week?
The Giants went into Denver and shocked the Broncos with an easy victory, and they did it without many of their superstars.
We’re unsure the Giants can continue that momentum against the Seahawks this week, but it gave Giants fans something to cheer about and some hope for the rest of the season.
Eli Manning was given time in the pocket and the Broncos paid the price, but the Seahawks aggressive defense might pose some problems.
The Seahawks aren’t great with the ball in hand, but their defensive is solid and turnovers could play a big part in this game.
Betting tip: Seahawks –5.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Seahawks by 7
7:25am Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Steelers responded to critics in the best way possible last week with a win over the previously unbeaten Chiefs.
Big Ben and the Steelers looked Super Bowl worthy and we can’t quite believe the line offered by bookmakers this week against the Bengals.
The Steelers are only –5.5 favourites and we were expecting the line to be somewhere around –10. We’ll take that from bookmakers and suggest punters take the home side which is riding some confidence now.
Betting tip: Steelers –5.5 @ $1.89 (BET NOW)

7:25am L.A Chargers vs. Denver Broncos
The Chargers haven’t won at home yet, but they are riding a two-game winning streak.
Wins against the Giants and Raiders have salvaged what could have been a horrible season for the Chargers, but they’re now looking like a team that could cause some problems for its opposition.
In particular the Broncos, which lost 23-10 to the Giants last week. They also suffered an injury to Trevor Siemian, but he’s not on the disabled list so he should be ready to go.
The Chargers lost to the Broncos earlier in the season by three points, but they might exact their revenge here.

11:30am New England Patriots vs. Atlanta Falcons
New England are the current favourites to win this marquee NFL game, but punters could have a tough time splitting the two sides.
The Patriots don’t often struggle throughout the regular season, but they have bounced back with narrow wins over the Buccs’ and Jets.
The Falcons ride a two-game losing streak into this game and last year’s Super Bowl runners up will be looking for some Super Bowl revenge.
The 2016/2017 Super Bowl rematch should be a closely-contested affair with two teams that look a touch off this season.
The concern for the Falcons is that both losses came at home and playing an away game in Boston won’t be easy.
Betting tip: Patriots –3.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Patriots by 10
11:30am Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins
This should be a classic NFL game to close week 7.
The Eagles are sitting comfortably at 5-1 on the season and they are unbeaten in two games at home, which bodes well against a dangerous Redskins team.
The Redskins won narrowly over the 49ers last week, which isn’t the best form, but they want redemption after getting easily handled by the Eagles earlier this year.
It’s tough to see the high-flying Eagles slow down this week and they might emerge as the team to beat this season.
