NFL Week 7 Betting Lines
Only one AFC South will be in action this week as three of the four teams that are on bye hail from this division. Indianapolis, Jacksonville, and Tennessee will all take the week off, leaving Houston as the lone team to defend the AFC South’s honor. The Texans will be involved in one of the top games of the week at home against the Green Bay Packers, but that’s not the only banger of the bunch. New England will host San Francisco in a clash between two of the most successful franchises in NFL history, and there are plenty of great division matchups.

BYE WEEK: Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, Tennessee Titans
Week 7 starts off with the Philadelphia Eagles welcoming the New York Giants to the City of Brotherly Love on Thursday night. Both games between these NFC East rivals were close last year with the Eagles needing overtime to beat the 2-10 Giants at home in Week 14, and the season finale was tied at 17 all entering the fourth quarter. The unheralded Boston Scott had a breakout game to help Philadelphia pick up the victory, accumulating 138 yards and three touchdowns on 23 touches, leading the Eagles in rushing and receiving.
It will be interesting to see where the Carolina Panthers are at this point in the season. The Panthers are completely rebuilding this year with Cam Newton no longer on the roster, and new head coach Matt Rhule has entrusted Joe Brady with the offense. Brady did wonders with LSU’s offense in helping the Bayou Bengals win the national championship last year, but the quarterback situation isn’t great and the only real playmaker on this team is Christian McCaffrey. Teddy Bridgewater is slated to be the starting quarterback, but don’t be surprised if Will Grier gets in on the action.
At the start of the decade, the rivalry between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens was one of the fiercest in the NFL. These teams met in a memorable AFC Championship Game that was so hard-hitting that player safety advocates still point to it as when the league got serious about concussions, and there is still plenty of bad blood between these two rivals.
Baltimore’s first victory over Pittsburgh last year spurred a 12-game win streak, and the Ravens will be sizable favorites per the NFL betting odds as long as Lamar Jackson is on the field.
New England needs to have things figured out on offense by the time San Francisco comes to Foxboro in Week 7. The 49ers have one of the most formidable defensive lines in the league, and this offensive line had some trouble against good pass rushers in 2019. Nick Bosa and Arik Armstead are excellent defensive ends that can both get to the quarterback, so Jarrett Stidham could be under a lot of pressure. This will be Jimmy Garoppolo’s return to New England too, and there should be some support for the former Patriot.
The Buccaneers will head to Sin City for the Sunday night game. Brand new Allegiant Stadium might be empty for the Raiders’ second primetime game at home, but everyone will be excited for the new look Raiders to square off against Tom Brady. This will be the first of three straight primetime games for the Buccaneers as the moribund franchise is suddenly the toast of the league.
Chicago and Los Angeles were two of the best teams in the NFC in 2018, but both franchises had a down year last season. Young quarterbacks Mitchell Trubisky and Jared Goff might not be the answers for their teams, but while the Bears can cut ties with Trubisky at the end of this season, the Rams still owe Goff $100 million over the next three seasons. Sean McVay had to release a lot of veterans this offseason now that Goff is getting paid franchise quarterback money, so there is more pressure on the former No. 1 overall pick.
