Top Betting Odds and Picks for 2016 NFL Week 7

Written by on May 27, 2016

As the lone football Week with a whopping four pick’em NFL lines (Giants at Rams, Raiders at Jags, Buccaneers at 49ers and Patriots at Steelers); Week 7 is certainly going to be an interesting one, featuring a lot of divided opinions across the league in terms of making NFL betting picks. Prepare for all that headache-inducing drama with these select top 2016 NFL odds and picks for Week 7 of the National Football League.

Top Betting Odds and Picks for 2016 NFL Week 7


Indianapolis (-3.5) at Tennessee, Sunday October 23

NFL Week 7 Pick: Indianapolis (-3.5) This one is really a no-brainer. The Colts are 9-0 SU in their last 9 overall games against Tennessee. Going back further, the Colts have won 14 of their last 15 overall games against Tennessee. You wanna bet against history continuing in Indianapolis’ favor, be my guest at your own peril.

Cleveland at Cincinnati

NFL Week 7 Pick: Cincinnati (-11.5) The Oddsmakers have it pretty spot-on here. The Bengals will win this one, and it won’t even be that close. You need a reason for that, just take a look at how Cincinnati has fared in its last three overall games against Cleveland—30-0 win by Cincy in Cleveland (December 2014), 31-10 win by Cincy in Cincinnati (November 2015), 37-3 win by Cincy in Clevaland (December 2015). With Cleveland not improved in a big way from the squad that was blown out twice last year, you should be on the lookout for another big double-digit win by Andy Dalton and company in this game.

Oakland at Jacksonville (PK)

NFL Week 7 Pick: Oakland (PK) Both Jacksonville and Oakland are expected to improve in the upcoming seasons, led by their QBs who will be entering their third years as pros. On paper, this one will be a tossup clash, as is evidenced by the PK line. I will, however, be leaning on Oakland here, not just because Derek Carr is a better QB than Blake Bortles, but also because the Raiders are 2-0 SU in their last two overall meetings against the Jags.

Tampa Bay at San Francisco (PK)

NFL Week 7 Pick: San Francisco (PK) Coach Chip Kelly is a quarterback whisperer and none of his past NFL QBs (Nick Foles, Mark Sanchez and Sam Bradford) were as talented as Collin Kaepernick. You can therefore be sure that, even with the Niners having several issues to solve in the team, Kaep will be a better QB than he was last year. Against a team that is led by the yet-to-prove-himself Jameis Winston, I am willing to side with the very-underrated Niners to win this home game.

Seattle at Arizona (-1)

NFL Week 7 Pick: Arizona (-1) The Seahawks own a 6-4 edge in their last 10 overall meetings against divisional rivals Arizona. But don’t for a second consider that as a betting value because it isn’t. Last season, for instance, the Cardinals beat the Seahawks in CenturyLink Field before Seattle returned the favor in the return fixture at the University of Phoenix Stadium. Will we have a repeat of the same? If you asked me, I’d think the exact opposite will be the case this time round, with Seattle winning at home and Arizona also winning at home. And going by that logic, the Cards should be your preferred pick for this Primetime Sunday Night fixture in Glendale, Arizona.
