NFL Week 7 2022: A case for each underdog

The NFL Week 7 lines are out, and it’s time to look at how each underdog could pull the upset or, at the least, cover their spread.

New Orleans Saints at Arizona Cardinals (-1.5)

The Saints have the better roster top to bottom. The question is whether the offense can get rolling with either quarterback.

Atlanta Falcons at Cincinnati Bengals (-6)

Atlanta is the only team which is undefeated against the spread in all six weeks so far. Don’t be afraid to ride with Marcus Mariota and Co.

Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys (-7)

The Lions aren’t going to stop the Cowboys very often, but Detroit can score points. The over is the right play, but look for the Lions to hang around.

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans (-2.5)

This is the classic “take the points” game with two teams who are both unpredictable and pretty even in talent. Plus, it’s a divisional matchup.

Green Bay Packers (-5.5) at Washington Commanders

Taylor Heinicke simply needs to avoid turnovers and allow Washington’s defense to harass Aaron Rodgers. The Packers shouldn’t be laying 5.5 points on the road against anybody.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-11) at Carolina Panthers

The Buccaneers just lost to the Steelers on the road while scoring 18 points. No reason to think Carolina can’t cover a double-digit spread against them at home.

New York Giants at Jacksonville Jaguars (-3)

The Giants are 5-1 while the Jaguars are 2-4. Jacksonville is tough against the run, but New York might force Trevor Lawrence into mistakes with its relentless blitz scheme.

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens (-6.5)

Cleveland has warts, but the Ravens can’t stop blowing double-digit leads in the second half. Prime opportunity to run the ball a ton and cover.

New York Jets at Denver Broncos (-1.5)

Russell Wilson. That’s the case.

Houston Texans at Las Vegas Raiders (-7)

Houston has only one win, but it has hung tough in every game this year. The Raiders, meanwhile, haven’t shown any ability to blow teams out.

Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5)

The Seahawks shouldn’t be getting this many points. More to the idea, how are the Chargers laying this many against anybody? Take Seattle’s moneyline.

Kansas City Chiefs (-3) at San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco will keep this game close if nothing else with its power running and quality defense.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Miami Dolphins (-7)

The Steelers are getting Tua Tagovailoa after missing two games with a concussion. Miami might try to protect him by running the ball and playing conservative, therefore keeping the score close.

Chicago Bears at New England Patriots (-8)

The Bears’ defense is actually decent, while the Patriots lack firepower. This could be closer than people think.
