NFL Week 7 odds: 5 best bets on favorites

With the NFL Week 7 odds settling before the weekend, we look at five favorites who should cover their spreads.

5. Los Angeles Rams (-16) vs. Detroit Lions

The Rams are laying more than two touchdowns, which would normally be a stay-away. However, the Lions are the league’s only winless team at 0-6 and just got boatraced by the Cincinnati Bengals in Motown. Additionally, Los Angeles has quarterback Matthew Stafford trying to get revenge on the Lions, who drafted him No. 1 overall in 2009. Meanwhile, Rams coach Sean McVay faces Jared Goff, who played in Los Angeles the past five seasons. McVay should be able to exploit Goff’s weaknesses.

4. Carolina Panthers (-3) at New York Giants

The Giants are going to be without a litany of stars including left tackle Andrew Thomas, running back Saquon Barkley, receiver Kenny Golladay and others. The Giants are 1-5 and struggling to do much of anything offensively, and they now face the Panthers’ pass rush led by Brian Burns. Without many of their top-tier weapons, New York will struggle to score.

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-11.5) vs. Chicago Bears

The Buccaneers are a double-digit favorite, but don’t be scared off. The Bears have one of the league’s worst passing games, and having to run against Tampa Bay is a kiss of death. Chicago will need a big game out of rookie quarterback Justin Fields, and he’ll be under pressure with Vita Vea, Ndamukong Suh and Shaq Barrett coming after him with a bad Chicago offensive line trying to provide protection. Could get ugly.

2. Green Bay Packers (-8) vs. Washington Football Team

The Packers have seen this line drop by a couple points in some books. Green Bay is 5-1 and Aaron Rodgers, while not having another MVP-caliber season, is playing really well. Conversely, Washington’s much-ballyhooed defense has been a mess despite having loads of talent highlighted by edge rusher Chase Young, defensive tackle Jonathan Allen and corner William Jackson III. If the Football Team can’t slow down Rodgers, is there a reason to think Taylor Heinicke keeps this close?

1. New England Patriots (-7) vs. New York Jets

The Patriots hammered the Jets in Week 2 at MetLife Stadium, and while New England has struggled to beat good teams this season, it has defeated the bad ones. The Jets are coming off their bye week but the offense remains a mess and quarterback Zach Wilson has struggled to read defenses. New England head coach Bill Belichick will divide more schemes to confuse Wilson, creating turnovers and short fields for the Patriots.
