However, the health and availability of Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott is the headline grabber here. The Arizona Cardinals (6-0) are 17-point favorites as they attempt to prolong their six-game winning streak in a matchup with the Houston Texans (1-5) on Sunday, October 24, 2021 at State Farm Stadium. Antonio Brown has been targeted 42 times and added 418 yards plus four touchdowns. So far this season Ronald Jones II has run for 118 yards (19.7 per game), with one touchdown.
The Giants may score a few more points but it is Carolina who is our Week 7 pick here on the road. Again, for us bettors, that Thursday night game could swing pretty quickly. The early bird gets the worm and moved here this week is no different as we take a look at the Thursday night game along with two 1 pm games for NFL Week 7 Early Picks. The Bucs are ranked 26th in DVOA on passes to the right, which is where Darnell Mooney leads the team with 18 targets to Allen Robinson’s 13.
The struggling Denver Broncos travel to take on the injury-depleted Cleveland Browns, making this NFL betting matchup a coin flip. Denver has done well defensively, giving up 18.3 points per game. They gave up 34 points in their last game and will need a better effort if they want to get the win. Buffalo suffered a hard-fought loss at Tennessee on Monday night before its bye, snapping a 4-0 ATS run in the process. Carolina is 8-2 ATS across its past 10 road games, and 6-1 ATS across the previous seven as a road underdog.
Don’t forget, the Rams also have the reigning NFL Offensive Player of the Year in RB Todd Gurley who is second in the NFL with 338 yards rushing. Kamara, last year’s NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, ran 19 times for a career-best 134 yards and three touchdowns, all of which were scored in the second half. Kamara also caught five passes for 47 yards in the victory, the Saints’ third of the season. While New Orleans can generate offense and put points on the board, the defense is not very good at keeping opponents out of their own end zone. The Saints defense gives up 30.3 points per game, which is 30th out of 32 teams in the NFL. The Los Angeles Rams will give the Chiefs a run for their money as the best offense in the NFL.
The season is only six games old, but Henry already has nearly 800 yards rushing. His quest for back-to-back 2,000-yard rushing seasons is off to a blistering start. Thanks to his most recent performance, the NFL betting underdog Titans were able to upset the Bills in front of a primetime audience. The Raiders proved to the public and themselves that it doesn’t matter who their coach is, they’re going to play hard.
The Patriots are also fortunate enough to have the game’s greatest quarterback in Tom Brady, who at 41 years of age continues to play at an elite level. The Dallas Cowboys have had their own drama to deal with as Zeke Elliott ended his holdout the final week before the 2019 season was to begin. Everything worked out at the last minute and Zeke got paid, now it seems he’ll be in the starting lineup Sunday when the Cowboys host the Giants in Dallas. The Baltimore Ravens enter week 1 of the 2019 NFL season as heavy favorites in Miami.
However, Jalen Hurts ran for two touchdowns late and helped Philly make the final score look very close. Hurts proves that he’s a far better fantasy football weapon than a real-life passer, and I do not believe he is long for the starting position in Philadelphia. The Eagles now have a mostly healthy offensive line which should help Miles Sanders and Kenneth Gainwell be productive. The matchup between offensive tackles Jordan Mailata and Andre Dillard against Vegas pass-rushers Maxx Crosby, Yannick Ngakoue, and Carl Nassib should be one of the deciding factors in this game. However, even if the Eagles can keep Hurts upright, I’m not confident in his ability to lead a potent offense.
Both Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor are out for the season. Seattle got a win last week, but it was against now 1-10 San Francisco. New England has won the past three games in the series and five of the last six. Miami’s last win over the Patriots came at the end of the 2015 season.
However, Atlanta has the offense to keep this game close enough to keep alive the Chiefs’ ability to be unable to cover the spread. The Packers got off to a hot 10-0 start in the 1st quarter against the Buccaneers before allowing Tampa to score 28 points in the 2nd quarter and 10 in the 3rd quarter. Houston has allowed 4 sacks per game, the fourth-most in the NFL while Green Bay has the 11th-highest sack percentage in the NFL, so the Packers’ edge rushers should dominate. The Packers went on to generate just 13 first downs and 201 yards of offense over the course of the game as they made it to the red zone just one time.
Things get started early on Sunday as the Vikings host the red hot Seattle Seahawks. Adrian Peterson and the Vikings will be ready as they’re coming off an impressive road win of their own at Lambeau last week with the division title on the line against the Packers. Dez Bryant will return this week for the Cowboys after missing two games with a leg injury. The key for Arizona will be to get RB David Johnson going again.
