As we head into Week 7 of the NFL season, here’s a look at the early odds for each game
With about a month and a half of NFL action in the books, we have a clearer picture of which teams are for real, and which teams will be looking ahead toward next season. The past week was chalk full of high scoring affairs, and even included a few upsets along the way.
The Los Angeles Rams are now the only undefeated team left this season at 6-0, after they beat the Denver Broncos in a close 23-20 win. The Kansas City Chiefs entered Week 6 at 5-0 as well, but fell short of the New England Patriots in shootout on Sunday Night Football that ended with a 43-40 score.
The Chiefs still look like a team to be reckoned with this season, and most betters should continue to feel confident placing bets on them moving forward. You can’t go wrong with betting on the Rams as well, and the Patriots reminded everyone why they are still the team to beat in the AFC.
The Miami Dolphins shocked many when they upset the Chicago Bears in a 31-28 overtime win, despite being without their starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The surprise Dolphins move to a solid 4-2 on the season, and continue to defy the odds. The Dallas Cowboys played against the usually defensively sound Jacksonville Jaguars, but they embarrassed them in this one. The Cowboys blew them out of town with an impressive 40-7 win, which many people did not expect.
This coming week of NFL action should be full of even more excitement, so here’s a look at the early odds for each Week 7 NFL game (via Westgate)
