NFL Week 7 Betting Tips

Week 6 of the NFL season saw our tips going 8-6, taking us to 52-42 on the season. Unfortunately two of our primetime tips missed by a single point. There are 6 teams on the bye this week, so just 13 games to explore.

Check out our full preview and betting tips for Week 7 in the NFL below and remember to follow our Twitter and Instagram for regular updates on the NFL season! 

NFL Week 7 Betting Tips

Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns

FirstEnergy Stadium, Friday 11:20am AEST

We start the week with two teams that are feeling the heat right now. Both are at 3-3, and are on multiple game losing streaks. The Browns are without Nick Chubb, Kareem Hunt and Baker Mayfield for this game, and have injury clouds over the likes of Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham, and various others. Case Keenum will be the starting quarterback in Mayfields absence, which is at least a solid veteran presence who can play a similar style to Mayfield. The one area they are not battling is the defensive line, with Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney forming the most feared pass rush in the league, and ready to attack a leaky Broncos offensive line.

The Broncos are another team with injury issues, having lost Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler already this season, and having ongoing niggles for the likes of Courtland Sutton and Melvin Gordon. Still, they are playing to expectations thanks to a talented defensive unit and solid if not spectacular play from Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback. Needless to say I’m not overly excited to bet on a game with so many moving pieces, but I’m happy to lean on the Browns at home, mostly thanks to superior coaching. 

Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers

Levi’s Stadium, Monday 11:20am AEST

Some more injury news to monitor in this game, with the big one that Jimmy Garropolo and Trey Lance are both uncertain. Garropolo is back at practice after his calf injury, while Lance is dealing with a knee injury. Add that to George Kittle out and important lineman Trent Williams and Javon Kinlaw carrying injuries, the team is not at its best right now. With a 3 game losing steak before last weeks bye, they’ll be grateful to get an easier opponent this week.

The Colts are at 2-4, but both wins have come against similarly bad teams in the Texans and the Dolphins. Injuries to Parris Campbell and the returning T.Y. Hilton have just thinned out the offense even more. Jonathan Taylor is the lone dependable star, while Carson Wentz has not rediscovered any of his old form at his new team. This doesn’t look like an enticing matchup either, but I have confidence that the 49ers will have the personnel and the scheme to get the job done at home.

New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks

Lumen Field, Tuesday 11:15am AEST

The Saints are sitting at 3-2 after their bye, although the only good team they’ve beaten so far is the Packers, and that seemed more like a week 1 anomaly than a true indication of the how the team is travelling. Michael Thomas is not yet ready too tart his season, so I expect a similar showing to what we’ve seen so far from the team.

Fortunately for them, their opponent is much less daunting without their best player. The Seahawks are without Russel Wilson again, as well as Chris Carson. There is also an injury cloud over his backup Alex Collins. Unfortunately that makes it 3/3 on primetime matchups looking underwhelming this week, mostly thanks to injuries. Once again I’m leaning towards the favourite, with the Saints much closer to full strength and possessing enough defensive ability to make life difficult for Geno Smith in this one.
