NFL 2017 Week 7 Picks

Writing this on Friday morning, the first game of week 7 has already taken place, with the Oakland Raiders edging out Kansas City in 31-30 thriller on Thursday night! That result is worth noting for the reason that following defeat , the Chiefs move to a 5-2 record, leaving just the Philadelphia Eagles as the only team with one loss through this stage, highlighting the lack of parity in the league. Anything can happen in the NFL, which makes it such an intriguing sport to bet on, but in equal measure, it requires a lot of homework in order to sift through the unpredictability to find the value, each week. Another week of graft has hopefully resulted in three more bets for the Betting Directory readers.As always, three singles are advised, together with the treble, which pays 6/1.

New Orleans @ Green Bay - Over 47.5

This game took a hit earlier in the week when it was confirmed that Green Bay's quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, was ruled out for the season with a broken collarbone. Had he played, you could have expected the total for this one to be well in to the mid 50s, but with Brett Hundley deputising for Rodgers, the lines have been turned on their head. The Packers are +4 underdogs at home and the total is 47.5.

There's no doubting that Rodgers is the heartbeat of the Green Bay Packers, however, the downgrade to Hundley could be an overreaction given that this is an offense that is loaded with weapons and Hundley is now in his third season as the understudy, so with a week's practice with the first team under his belt, there is no reason to believe the Packers should suffer a huge slump.

Following back-to-back defeats to open the season, the New Orleans Saints have found their form in the last month, winning three on the bounce (two on the road) and scoring 106 points in the process! Even a fit Rodgers would have no baring on the Packers defense being able to halt the Saints offense, so the play is to put faith in Hundley and Green Bay being able to keep pace to take this game over 47.5 points.

Denver Broncos @ LA Chargers - Over 40.5

This AFC West divisonal game is forecast to be a close one, with the Chargers the marginal -1 favourites to win and it would be hard to make a convincing case for either team winning this. However, the total of 40.5 points stands out as being too low.

The Broncos have a reputation for being a feared defense and justifiably so, but havign only played one game from their first five on the road, it is difficult to gage how good they are away from Mile High Stadium.

As divisional rivals, these two play each other twice per season and of the last 12 meetings, only three failed to go over Sunday's total of 40.5. It's worth playing the overs given the talent that both these teams have on offense and that this is a crucial game in determining how well the winner does in the division for the remainder of the season.

Carolina to cover -3 @ Chicago Bears

The Carolina Panthers are becoming the 'Jekyll and Hyde' team of the NFL - when they have played bad, they have looked bad (namely the best couple of games of the season) but when they have played good, they have looked elite.

They are handicapped at -3 to go on the road to the 2-4 Chicago Bears, who emerged victorious from a turgid affair in Baltimore last week. This will be rookie quarterback, Mitch Trubisky's, third career start and arguably his toughest opponent. The Panthers should be too good and be more than capable of winning by at least the field goal that is required to cover the spread.
