With a thrilling primetime finish and three overtime games, NFL Week 6 gave fans and bettors plenty of reason to be tuned into the action this week. Fortunately, the best NFL betting sites are offering odds on Week 7 games, but the games you choose might depend on whether you like large spreads as there will be three home teams playing in the afternoon on Sunday afternoon. These teams have been marked as 12+ point favorites, but it will also be interesting to see how the road teams will perform although only a few are likely to be the bookies’ favorites.
Sunday’s Best Games
Kansas City at Tennessee (Kansas -4.5)
Kansas City is looking to jump-start their season in Nashville as they take on the Tennessee Titans in the premier early kickoff match. The Chiefs seemed to teeter in Week 6, walking away with a 2-3 record against Washington. Their offense turned over the ball more than usual, although the defense has remained suspect at best. The Chiefs have only recorded three wins, with their losses coming from teams with 13 wins and five losses.
A victory away from home against the resurgent Titans team might prove to be the much-needed catalyst that proves Kansas belongs at the top of the AFC and hopefully ignites a deep playoff run. However, the Titans are coming off high from a dramatic home win against the Bills on Monday. Derrick Henry proved to be a strong player during the game by running hard as ever, but there are still injury concerns over the Titans’ defense.
With the Titans being the heavy favorite to win the AFC South title, a triumph against Kansas on Sunday might pay off in the long run. As such, the Titans have a strong chance of containing Kansas City or keeping the match competitive enough to allow the offense to cover the spread.
Bengals at Ravens (Ravens -6)
The Baltimore Ravens have dominated the AFC North series of late with five straight wins, starting the first triumph in Week 4 at home followed by a 38-3 victory in Cincinnati. Their quarterback play was a significant factor in these two games, with Lamar Jackson accounting for five touchdowns while Brandon Allen and Joe Burrow got sacked a total of seven times.
The season, the Bengals are off to a great start after beating the Lions last Sunday in Detroit. The Bengals took a 10-0 lead by halftime and they were 20-0 up before the fourth quarter. Their defense has remained solid in recent matches, ranking ninth in rushing yards. That means the Raven might need to heavily rely on Jackson’s arm. As such, you can expect the Cincinnati Bengals to keep this gamer close.
Colts at San Francisco 49ers (49ers -3.5)
Both the Colts and the 49ers looked great on paper in the offseason, starting the season with hopes of making a deep run to the playoffs and possibly the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, this game feels like the situation of a loser-leaves-town, as the 49ers are in a tough situation in the NFC West with the LA Rams and Arizona having a combined record of 11-1. The Colts, on the other hand, are two matches behind the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South.
The Colts handled themselves well last week by claiming victory over the Houston Texans at the Lucas Oil Stadium. Carson recorded 11 completions out of 20 attempts, but they got two touchdowns in 223 yards. Their defense also played a major role in the blowout, keeping Houston from the end zone throughout the game and creating three turnovers.
San Francisco is trying to get back on track following a 17-10 loss in Arizona in Week 5. Defensively, the team did an excellent job at limiting Arizona’s explosive offense and they’ll need more of such performance until their offense is whole again. Unfortunately, Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo will be out on Injuries as they go against the Colts.
Washington at Packers (Packers -9.5)
After winning five straight games, the red-hot Green Bay Packers are set to welcome the struggling Washington team at the Lambeau Field in the afternoon. The NFC East defending champions started the 2021 season at 2-4 and are desperately looking to get back into the winners’ circle. Unfortunately, their starting center and Josh Myers left last Sunday’s game with injuries, leaving some questions about the Packers’ offensive line.
Washington’s defense is awful this season, although they’re still incredibly stout on the upfront led by sophomore stud Chase Young, Montez Sweat, and Jonathan Allen. The three have a total of 7.5 sacks this season and several quarterback pressures. However, most games haven’t gone well for Washington, with Terry McLaurin and Antonio Gibson’s availability and effectiveness in doubt for this game. That makes the Packers the heavy favorite to win this afternoon game.
