The NFL Week 7 action once again proved how competitive the NFL is this season and every team has a shot to win each and every week. While this may make it tough for betting fans to get an edge, it is certainly fun for football fans everywhere who head into every Sunday with their team having a chance to bring home the W.
If you are interested in placing some bets on the upcoming Week 8 Action be sure to head over to our Strategies Page for additional tips.
The Patriots look to finally be clicking on Offense
The Patriot’s offense has struggled so far this season but things look like they finally started to come together in a 54-13 win over the Jets. Matt Jones had a season-high 36 pass attempts and threw for over 307 yards and two scores. The Patriots are 3-4 and their schedule sets up well over the rest of the season and I think they could make a run to get into the playoffs as one of the Wild Card teams.
The Titans came into their matchup with the Chiefs as slight home underdogs which was a bit of a surprise. The Titans dominated this game from the get-go and won in dominating fashion 27-3. The Titans improve to 5-2 while the Chiefs fall to 3-4 and continue to struggle with consistency.
The Bengals are starting to gel offensively and a team to keep an eye on in the AFC
Almost all of the experts had the Ravens beating the Bengals heading into this matchup but the Bengals put on an offensive show en route to a 41-17 win. Joe Burrow put himself into the MVP discussion by throwing for 416 yards and 3 TDs, while Ja’Marr Chase had over 200 yards receiving and a score. The Bengals and Ravens are both 5-2 atop the AFC North standings in what looks to be one of the best divisions in football.
Most thought the Raiders season was likely over after the surprising Jon Gruden firing, but the Raiders have looked great on offense over the past two weeks. They have put up over thirty points on offense the last couple of weeks and are a team to keep an eye on over the rest of the season. When a team loses their head coach they typically go into the tank or they use it as a rallying cry to come together as a team which is what looks to be happening in Las Vegas.
The Packers have won six in a row and have a big matchup against the Cardinals Thursday Night
The Packers have rattled off 6 straight wins as Aaron Rodgers looks sharp in what is likely his last year in Green Bay. The Vikings have been inconsistent but have some solid wins and have a good shot to get one of the Wild Card spots if they can clean things up on the defensive end.
The Cardinals sit at the top of most power rankings
The Cardinals and Rams both have rosters to make it to the Super Bowl this year and it will be interesting to see if the Cardinals can keep up their hot start. The Cardinals face off against the Packers on National TV on Thursday night in what could be a playoff preview that we will see later in the season.
The Bucs are the Super Bowl favorites and as long as they stay healthy they have a great shot to get home-field advantage throughout the postseason. The Saints have quietly gotten off to a 4-2 start despite some struggles on the offensive end. They face the Bucs at home on Sunday and I think it will be a struggle for the Saints offense to put up enough points to keep up with Tom Brady.
The Cowboys look like they have locked up the division title as Washington is the 2nd place team and has a 2-5 record. The Cowboys are in a great spot to position themselves for a deep playoff run.
The Bills have great odds to make it to the Super Bowl out of the AFC and I think they will be able to steamroll through the AFC East and claim one of the top playoff seeds.
The AFC North is my favorite to watch and each week is a total guessing game of who will show up. The Ravens and Bengals look like a cut above the Browns and Steelers at this point.
The Titans should rack up a ton of wins against the AFC South defenses down the stretch and have a great shot at getting the 1 seed.
The AFC West features a ton of offense and the preseason Super Bowl favorite Chiefs are looking at missing the playoffs if they don’t put things together soon.
