2019 NFL Week 7 Betting
For the second straight week, the NFL has a light schedule with four teams enjoying their bye. The AFC North is impacted with the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers off while the NFC South will sit the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers. Not to worry, though. Week 7 still has plenty of intriguing matchups to keep bettors racing to their devices to put down some coin.
The betting week gets started on Thursday night with a classic AFC West matchup between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. The franchises debuted as members of the old American Football League in 1960 and have been paired in the same division ever since. The clubs have played 117 times during their existence and they’ve split the last 14 meetings with each team enjoying a 7-game winning streak in that span.
It’s been the Chiefs getting the better of the rivalry lately on their way to three straight division titles. In fact, one of these teams has won the AFC West for the past nine seasons. The Chiefs have four crowns while the Broncos have five. So there’s a good chance this contest will go a long way toward deciding the division winner in 2019, though the Raiders and Chargers will have something to say about that.
Four divisional matchups make up the 12-game Sunday schedule. Returning from their bye, the Buffalo Bills host Miami in an AFC East tilt. The Bills had their problems the previous two seasons, but beating the Dolphins wasn’t one of them. Buffalo has won three of the four previous meetings with the Fins and is 6-1 SU and ATS at home over the last seven seasons. Other division contests have the Vikings at Detroit in an NFC North tilt and Houston at Indianapolis in the AFC South.
A couple of tantalizing matchups between NFC heavyweights are set for Sunday. The Rams and Falcons are playing for the first time since their playoff tilt following the 2017 season that saw Atlanta post a 26-13 win. It was the Falcons’ fifth consecutive win in the series and their seventh in the last eight meetings. Atlanta’s NFC South counterpart New Orleans has a tough task in front them with a visit to Chicago on tap. The Bears lost just four regular-season games last year, including a disturbing setback in Miami after their bye. Matt Nagy and his troops will try and reverse a trend that’s seen them lose their last five games after a bye week.
Football Night in America has to include America’s team, right? The Cowboys are scheduled to make the second of three appearances on the marquee telecast. Jerry’s World is the site of the Week 7 NFC East confrontation between the past two division winners when the Boys host the Philadelphia Eagles. The teams have combined to win 12 division titles in 17 seasons since realignment in 2002.
AFC East foes New England and the Jets wrap up the betting week and their season series on Monday Night Football. The Jets made a splash during the offseason in an effort to improve the on-field product and that strategy will be vindicated with a win over the defending champs, something that hasn’t happened much. The Jets have lost three straight to the Pats at MetLife Stadium, though they are 5-1 ATS in the last six matchups.
