Early Week 7 AFC North Betting Preview

The AFC North may be the most unpredictable division in the NFL, which can make those who like to bet on their favorite AFC North teams a bit uneasy.  There is still a few days before an AFC North team plays.  However, it is never too early to start doing a little analysis for betting purposes.  Here is an early preview of Week 7 in the AFC North.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Detroit Tigers


Both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Detroit Lions are sitting at 4-2.  Both teams want to continue proving the doubters they had during the early part of the season wrong.  However, the biggest question going into this game is what happens when the ninth best offense in the NFL, the Lions, collide with the eighth best defense in the league in the Bengals.

Bengals have a decent offense but their defense is what has been winning them games.  This game will be no different as it will be up to the Bengals defense to slow down the Lions offense enough to give Andy Dalton the chance to outscore them.

Baltimore Ravens vs Pittsburgh Steelers



This is how unpredictable sports analysts and book keepers think the AFC North is, the Pittsburgh Steelers, despite being 1-4 in the standings are only a 1.5 underdog according to the point spread.

The Steelers are going to be taken on defending Super Bowl Champions and division rivals the Baltimore Ravens.  The Ravens are 3-3 and second in the AFC North.  One would think this would make the Ravens big favorites.  However, expect the typical defensive slug-fest we have seen between these two teams in the past.  The Ravens also demonstrated that they struggle defending against the deep ball something Ben Roethlisberger has in his repertoire.  This is a risky game to bet on, to say the least.

Cleveland Browns vs. Green Bay Packers




The Cleveland Browns have surprised a lot of people this season by looking like a somewhat competent football team.  However, they are coming off a dishearten loss to the Detroit Lions and no one is giving them much of a chance against the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.

The Browns are their own worst enemy.  Many are calling for the benching of quarterback Brandon Weeden, while others point to his ability to throw the long ball as reason enough for him to stick around.  However, winning teams do not have these sorts of problems at this point in the season.
