The modern-day leviathan that is the National Football League rolls into Week 7 with a key tilt in the AFC North on the horizon. The Baltimore Ravens, leaders of the division and fresh off a rocking chair cover against the Los Angeles Chargers (34-6 win as 3-point favorites), take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Baltimore. The betting line remained steady on most oddsboards through Monday morning since opening Sunday night at Ravens -6.5.
Week 7 also features a host of large spreads led by the Arizona Cardinals laying 17 against the Houston Texans.
The Cardinals stand alone as the last remaining unbeaten team in the NFL, while the Detroit Lions have the unenviable distinction of being the league’s lone winless team.
Coming off a week that saw favorites dominate in the 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. ET windows to the tune of an 8-2 against the spread record (with the Cardinals and Raiders being the only dogs to prevail), the sportsbooks will be looking to rebound in Week 7.
Below, we examine Week 7 spreads and totals, starting with Thursday’s matchup between Denver and Cleveland.

NFL Week 7 odds
Thursday: Broncos at Browns (-4.5, 43)
Cleveland dropped to 1-2 ATS at home after Sunday’s 37-14 loss to the Cardinals, and early action has moved against the Browns, who opened -6 in Las Vegas. As of this Monday post, Cleveland is available for -4 at BetMGM.
Bengals at Ravens (-6.5, 47.5)
In arguably the biggest game on this week’s slate, the Ravens are 6.5-point favorites at Caesars. After boot-stomping the Chargers at M+T Bank Stadium on Sunday, Baltimore pushed its ATS record to 3-3 for the season. The Bengals also improved to 3-3 ATS after dismantling the Lions 34-11 as 3.5-point road favorites.
Panthers (-3 even, 44) at Giants
Since starting the season 3-0, Carolina’s weaknesses (and Sam Darnold’s) have been exposed in each of the past three weeks. This could be a get-well game against the G-Men, but back the Panthers at your own peril. Sunday’s 34-28 loss at home against the Vikings marked the third consecutive week Carolina failed to cover the number. Early bettors grabbed Giants +3, moving the line to as short as Carolina -2.5 (-120) at WynnBET.
Redskins at Packers (-9.5, 49)
Green Bay was offered at -7.5 in look-ahead lines last week, but Sunday’s fresh number of +10 drew some Washington interest. After a 24-14 road win at Chicago, the Packers are 5-1 ATS this year, the only blemish coming in Week 1 at New Orleans. The Football Team is 1-5 ATS.
Chiefs (-4.5, 56) at Titans
Early bettors seized on the Chiefs as a 4-point road favorite, and this number crept up in early wagering. K.C. covered the number for just the second time this season with its 31-13 win as 6.5-point chalk Sunday at Washington.
Falcons (-2.5, 47.5) at Dolphins
This line has flipped since advanced wagering last week, when Miami was a 2.5-point favorite. It reopened around pick ‘em and has been bet toward Atlanta early. The Dolphins dipped to 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS after losing to lowly Jacksonville in London
Jets at Patriots (-7, 43)
This number has been bet up from -6.5 on most oddsboards, although WynnBET is still showing -6.5 for bettors who want to back the Patriots.
Lions at Rams (-15.5, 50)
Another large spread to consider here as the Matthew Stafford-led Rams look to squash a second inferior opponent in as many weeks. L.A. put the Giants to sleep, 38-11, and easily covered the -10.5 number on the road.
Eagles at Raiders (-3, 48.5)
No Jon Gruden? No problem. The Raiders didn’t look like a team in turmoil as they ran roughshod at Denver, 34-24, as 3-point dogs.
Bears at Bucs (-13.5, 47)
Last time out, the Bucs failed to cover in their Thursday night matchup with Philadelphia. It’s worth noting that Tampa Bay is 2-0 ATS this season when laying double digits, and early money pushed this line up from a -12.5 opener.
Texans at Cardinals (-17, 47.5)
The Cardinals will have to cover one of the biggest spreads of the season in order to improve upon their ATS record to 5-1.
Colts at 49ers (-4, 45)
The Colts reeled off their third straight ATS win with a 31-3 rout of the Texans, and have drawn some early money here, with DraftKings among the shops moving to 3.5.
Saints (-3.5, 44.5) at Seahawks
The Seahawks covered as 4.5-point road dogs in Pittsburgh despite a 23-20 OT loss Sunday night in Geno Smith’s debut as Seattle’s starting QB.
Bye weeks: Bills, Cowboys, Jaguars, Chargers, Vikings, Steelers
