NFL Week 7 Picks Against The Spread – Three Early Lines We’re Taking
Chief Sports Writer
After another wild ride of football, it’s time to take an early look at NFL Week 7 Picks Against The Spread.
In doing so, we’ll be able to try and find some advantages before the oddsmakers change the spread/total back into their favor.
In this article, I will identify three picks to make a move on early and maximize profits. Plus, I’ll add which NFL betting sites are offering the best odds.
Without further ado, let’s see what the Week 7 slate has in store for us.
NFL Week 7 Picks Against The Spread
Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans
This sounds absurd, but we need to jump in early on the 56.5-point game total for the Chiefs-Titans game. I know, I know… hear me out. The Titans’ pass defense is terrible, and that’s all Patrick Mahomes & Co. are bound to do going forward with Clyde Edwards-Helaire on the IR. Of course, Darrel Williams got two goal-line touchdowns last week, but we know who got the ball down there. Not to mention, Derrick Henry will be taking aim at a porous Chiefs run defense- best of luck to them.

Detroit Lions at Los Angeles Rams (-16)
The Rams have the highest implied team total (ITT) at 33 this week, and it comes with plenty of good reasoning. For one, Rams QB Matthew Stafford will be facing his former team and he’ll certainly want to put on a good showing for the only franchise he had ever known before this season. Also, the Lions aren’t very good. I feel like a fool for trusting them against the Bengals last week, but I won’t let it happen again. We just saw the Rams take care of a wounded Giants team last week and that’s essentially what is going to happen this time around.

Indianapolis Colts (+4.5) at San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers will make their second Sunday Night Football appearance this season, and I expect them to falter in this one too. Despite losing that Week 5 heartbreaker to the Ravens, we are now seeing the Colts play much better football in each of these last three weeks. San Francisco has a pair of banged-up QBs with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance both in their own personal hell. If the Colts decide to give Jonathan Taylor a healthy dose of carries, this is going to be a lot closer of a game than most people realize.
