It’s time to talk NFL Week 7 totals starting with Thursday night’s Broncos-Browns battle at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland.
The absence of QB Baker Mayfield and the Browns dynamic backfield duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt is the central storyline here. The news about Mayfield dropped Wednesday after he had insisted early in the week that he’d be able to play through a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. Journeyman Case Keenum will start in place of Mayfield.
After seeing several 44s across the sports-betting landscape on Monday, the total has dipped down to 41 at several books including Caesars and SuperBook USA.
Here are OVER/UNDER numbers for the rest of the Week 7 card. All lines reflect the market consensus as of Thursday.
Live NFL Week 7 Sportsbook Totals
NFL Week 7 Over/Unders
Bengals at Ravens (O/U 46.5)
M+T Bank Stadium plays host to one of the NFL’s biggest matchups this week. It’s worth noting that the Bengals have posted five consecutive UNDERs as they head into Baltimore. The Ravens average 28.3 points per game with the Bengals checking in at 24.7.
Panthers at Giants (O/U 43)
Carolina owns a three-game winning streak in its series against the Giants and has averaged 36.3 points in those games. What does that mean? Nothing, probably. But if you want to take a stab at the OVER, it’s moved down from 43 to 42.5 at DraftKings.
Redskins at Packers (O/U 49)
Not a lot of movement in this number throughout the week. The Packers will be playing their third home game of the season. They’ve averaged 31 points at Lambeau Field in wins over the Lions and Steelers.
Chiefs at Titans (O/U 57.5)
Here you’ll find the highest total of Week 7 and rightfully so. The Titans are coming off a big 34-31 win over the Bills on Monday night. They’ve been involved in two straight OVERs. K.C. is still potent on offense and porous on defense. This total jumped all the way to 58 at DraftKings.
Falcons at Dolphins (O/U 47.5)
Here’s a game that can be enhanced if you fancy a flutter on the OVER and just hope for points. Otherwise, stay away.
Jets at Patriots (O/U 42.5)
When these AFC East divisional foes have gotten together recently, the UNDER has been the way to play. The total has stayed UNDER in eight of the last 11 games between the Jets and Pats.
Lions at Rams (O/U 50.5)
The Lions are riding a four-game UNDER streak. QB Jarred Goff travels back to L.A. for the first time since being traded by the Rams for Matthew Stafford.
Eagles at Raiders (O/U 48.5)
Aside from an inexplicable 20-9 loss to Chicago in their last game at home, the Raiders have produced points aplenty at Allegiant Stadium. They averaged 32 points in two home wins before the debacle against the Bears, which marked the last game for Jon Gruden as coach.
Bears at Bucs (O/U 47)
Several books had this number at 49 to start the week, but it has leveled off to 47 at FanDuel, DraftKings and others.
Texans at Cardinals (O/U 47.5)
At first blush, it’s tempting to look at the high-powered Cardinals offense and view this as a pre-flop OVER play. But the total in four of Houston’s last five road tilts has gone UNDER the number. Perhaps you’re better off taking a wait-and-see approach and a possible in-game wager at BetMGM.
Colts at 49ers (O/U 44)
Carson Wentz and the Colts offense have picked up their scoring pace, tallying more than 25 points in each of the past three weeks. The OVER has prevailed in five of Indy’s last six road games.
MNF: Saints at Seahawks (O/U 42.5)
The Seahawks have been a part of just one game that’s gone OVER the posted total this season and that was before Russell Wilson got hurt. Geno Smith and the Seahawks lost to Pittsburgh 23-20 last week in an overtime game that pushed with a total of 43.
