Throughout the six weeks of the season, it has been difficult to predict what will happen in any game. There’s a lot of parity throughout the NFL and that has led to some interesting results up to this point.
Betting on the point spread is still a great option and there are some good clashes to focus on. Here are the top five NFL Week 7 picks for games taking place on Sunday.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Atlanta Falcons
Best bet: Bengals -6
The Cincinnati Bengals have struggled to start the 2022 season as they look to win the AFC again. However, Atlanta could be catching the Bengals at the wrong time, as Cincinnati just got a stunning win in New Orleans.
The Falcons have been much better than expected, but that defense doesn’t always play well. Look for Joe Burrow and the Bengals to have a great day on offense. They will win and cover all six points at home.
Washington Commanders vs. Green Bay Packers
Best bet: Packers -5.5
Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers have been a disaster this season, but at some point, they’re going to turn the season around. Week 7 would be a perfect opportunity as they are ready to visit Washington Commanders.
Washington just beat the Bears in Week 6, but now they won’t have starting quarterback Carson Wentz. Commanders will struggle to get stops in this game, as the Packers will light up the scoreboard and win big.
Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns
Best bet: is Ravens -6.5
The AFC North rivals are in Week 7 and this division has not been good this season. Both the Browns and Ravens have been throwing big leads late in games, but some team has to win this game.
Returning home should help the Ravens turn things around and they will have too much offense for the Browns to keep up. Take Baltimore-6.5 as they get back to normal by getting a convincing win over the rival Browns.
Las Vegas Raiders vs. Houston Texans
Best bet: Texans +7
The Texans and Raiders combined to win just two games this year and both teams have some serious flaws. Las Vegas is the much more talented team overall, but the Raiders simply haven’t proven they can win close games.
Houston is one of the worst NFL teams in the league, but it has been challenging teams all season. Take the seven points, as it is quite difficult for the Raiders to win.
Miami Dolphins vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
Best bet: Steelers +7
The Miami Dolphins are expected to get Tua Tagovailoa back at quarterback on Sunday night, but it’s hard to know how he’ll play. A big hit and the star quarterback will be out of the game, giving the Steelers a shot in this one.
Pittsburgh looked bad to start the year, but then they came out and surprised the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Take the seven points, as Pittsburgh will play well again on Sunday.
