NFL Week 7 Tips

Denver Broncos @ Arizona Cardinals

The NFL Thursday-night game this week will feature the Denver Broncos at the Arizona Cardinals, a game that's between two of the have-nots so far this NFL season. There are a couple of irreconcilable trends in this game: Arizona has not won at home while Denver has not won on the road. Barring a tie, one of those trends will have to come to an end. The Broncos at 2-4 are entering as small moneyline favorites in the game as they look to improve against the the 1-4 Cards.

If there's a team that is going to be more motivated in this game then it would have to be Denver. A 3-4 record would inject a little bit of life into a Wild Card bid. Teams occasionally do get into the playoffs with eight-win regular seasons and that is not off of the table for the Broncos. Arizona, conversely, can't even dream about winning their division as they would have to chase down the 6-0 Los Angeles Rams. Furthermore, one win through five game means your Wild-Card playoff hopes are slim and none.

Denver is on a four-game losing street but they annoyed both KC and Los Angeles in recent weeks. The Broncos should have the confidence on Thursday against the team that could be the worst in the league. A moneyline of $1.71 looks big as you might put Denver a fair bit shorter than that in this contest.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs

The Cincinnati Bengals are coming in as 5.5-point underdogs in their Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. That KC is hosting the game and that they have a 5-1 overall record this season is certainly a part of the reason why. 

The Bengals are bringing a 4-2 record into the game and they certainly have not been a bad team this year. But their home loss last week to a struggling Pittsburgh team certainly shows that the Bengals are not entirely on song at this point in their season.

Meanwhile, the only knock against KC is that they lost a squeaker last week at New England, a game that the Patriots won on a field goal as time expired. The Chiefs look like a safe bet to cover a home spread this week, even against a decent team. Take the Chiefs at -5.5 with Ladbrokes in this one, the line priced at $1.91.

Buffalo Bills @ Indianapolis Colts

Betting lines on the Buffalo Bills are too big to ignore as they prepare for their Week 7 game against the Indianapolis Colts. Both teams have struggled this season and they combine for just 3 wins in 12 combined games. However, Buffalo takes the bigger share of those wins. The Bills still own arguably the surprise result of the season thus far as they thumped the Minnesota Vikings several weeks ago.

The Colts will host Sunday's upcoming game but an 0-2 record as hosts is a good enough reason to stay away from backing them. That they are priced in the $1.33 moneyline range with most sportsbooks is an even better reason to stay off of Indianapolis. You'd have to pound their moneyline hard to make things interesting but with just one win this season, such an action looks foolhardy. Covering a spread as big as -7.5 looks even dumber.

There is definitely a bipolarness to Buffalo but the Bills' handicap looks like a lot of help in this game. 7.5 points are available with BetEasy and bettors should be taking that at $1.91.

Los Angeles Rams @ San Francisco 49ers

The Los Angeles Rams are 6-0 and they are the only undefeated team in the NFL heading into Week 7. However, despite the great record, the Rams have not posted that many blowouts. You have to go back to Week 2 to find a huge win as the Rams demolished the Arizona Cardinals. Since then, a 12-point victory is as big as it has gotten for the NFL's Super Bowl favorites. In the three weeks since that game, all the victories for LA have been one-possession wins.

Heading into San Francisco in Week 7, it's the 49ers handicap that looks interesting. 9.5 helpers are available with Unibet at odds of $1.91. The 49ers are coming off of a disappointing road loss from last week, one where they fell to Green Bay late and hard. However, a three-point loss on the road against a good team does offer some hope that they will play Los Angeles close in Week 7. That the 49ers host should help their cause a bit. Their home field is the scene of their only win this season, a three-point spread against Detroit back in Week 2.

Bettors should be backing Los Angeles in this game. Not only has San Francisco given a sign of hope but the Rams simply aren't crushing the competition right now.

Super Bowl LIII Tips

The 2018 Super Bowl saw the Phildelphia Eagles beat the New England Patriots to claim their maiden NFL title. With the season complete, betting odds are now open for the next season with some sportsbooks and you can get in early for Super Bowl LIII.

When betting well ahead of time, you should only look for long odds. You might think that the New England Patriots are going to win but their odds of $6.00 with Unibet aren't likely to shorten in the offseason. One team with long odds that might see some improvements over the offseason is Los Angeles Rams.

The Rams had a break-out year that saw the emergence of their young quarterback. Jared Goff, playing in his second season, threw for a completion rate of 62.1%. That marks an improvement of 7.5% from the previous season and his QB rating improved by nearly 40 points. 

At $21.00 to win the Super Bowl, the Rams are worth a long-range poke as they have a talented young QB to rally and build around. Certainly, those odds are long enough that you can make a meaningful bet without having to commit a big portion of your bankroll.
