The highly anticipated Week 7 of the NFL season is set to kick off with the Jacksonville Jaguars taking on the New Orleans Saints in a Thursday Night Football showdown. Despite their recent struggles against the Saints, the Jaguars are favored to win by 1.5 points. On Sunday night, the Miami Dolphins will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles, while the San Francisco 49ers will battle the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night.
Looking at the opening odds for Week 7, the Buffalo Bills are the biggest favorites with an 8.5-point spread over the New England Patriots. The Washington Commanders, the Jaguars, and the Green Bay Packers are all 1.5-point favorites in their respective matchups.
In terms of over/under totals, the highest projected scoring game is the Eagles vs Dolphins with a total of 52.5 points. The lowest scoring game is expected to be the Falcons vs Buccaneers with a total of 40 points.
When it comes to the Jaguars vs Saints matchup, recent history favors the Saints, who have won and covered the spread in their last five meetings with the Jaguars. However, the Jaguars have been performing well this season, going 4-2 against the spread. With the Saints struggling to cover the spread, I’m leaning towards the Jaguars to cover the 1.5-point spread.
In the Dolphins vs Eagles game, the Dolphins have won and covered the spread in their last two meetings with the Eagles. However, prior to that, the Eagles were dominant in the series. While the Dolphins have been decent against the spread this season, the Eagles have struggled to cover at home. I’m taking the Eagles to cover the 2.5-point spread in this one.
One notable line movement is in the Bills vs Patriots game. The spread has shifted from Buffalo being 7.5-point favorites to now being 8.5-point favorites. The Bills have had the upper hand in recent matchups against the Patriots, winning five out of their last seven meetings. With the Patriots struggling this season, I’m picking the Bills to cover the 7.5-point spread.
