Carolina Panthers at New York Giants (1 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Panthers (-150), Giants (+130)
  • Spread: Panthers -3 (+100), Giants +3 (-120)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 44 (-110), Under 44 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Panthers 23.5, Giants 20.5

The New York Giants have been decimated by injuries in recent weeks, especially to their offensive skill players. They’ve been completely dominated in their last two games, which they’ve lost by a combined 51 points to fall to 1-5 on the season.

Things won’t get any easier in Week 7 against the Carolina Panthers, who are 3-3 after losing in overtime to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. While the Panthers will be without Christian McCaffrey (hamstring), they still have a solid offense around Sam Darnold as well as one of the better defenses in the NFL.

That unit should give New York’s depleted offense trouble in Week 7, allowing Carolina to win by at least a field goal and cover the spread.

Atlanta Falcons at Miami Dolphins (1 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Falcons (-110), Dolphins (-110)
  • Spread: Falcons PICK (-110), Dolphins PICK (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 48 (-110), Under 48 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Falcons 24, Dolphins 24

Betting on the Under is never fun, but it’s usually a good strategy when betting on games between bad teams. This one certainly qualifies as such, as the Atlanta Falcons and Miami Dolphins are a combined 3-8 this season.

The Falcons’ offense has been up and down but is averaging just 21 points per game overall — 22nd in the NFL. Atlanta’s offense has also been historically worse on the road throughout Matt Ryan‘s career, especially in outdoor games.

The Dolphins got Tua Tagovailoa back in Week 6 but managed just 20 points against a porous Jacksonville Jaguars defense. Miami has now scored 20 points or less in five of their six games this season and is coming off a demoralizing loss to the Jaguars in London.

Given the lack of weapons and generally mediocre quarterback play on both sides, this game projects to be low-scoring.

New York Jets at New England Patriots (1 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Jets (+235), Patriots (-290)
  • Spread: Jets +6.5 (-110), Patriots -6.5 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 43 (-110), Under 43 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Jets 18.25, Patriots 24.75

Washington Football Team at Green Bay Packers (1 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Washington (+350), Packers (-450)
  • Spread: Washington +10 (-110), Packers -10 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 49 (-110), Under 49 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Washington 19.5, Packers 29.5

Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens (1 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Bengals (+235), Ravens (-290)
  • Spread: Bengals +6.5 (-110), Ravens -6.5 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 47.5 (-110), Under 47.5 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Bengals 20.5, Ravens 27

Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans (1 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Chiefs (-200), Titans (+170)
  • Spread: Chiefs -4 (-110), Titans +4 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 56 (-110), Under 56 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Chiefs 30, Titans 26

The Kansas City Chiefs haven’t played up to their potential this year, but they’ve also played better than their 3-3 record suggests. Their first two losses were by a combined seven points, both of which could have been wins with better ball security.

After thrashing Washington 31-13 in Week 6, the Chiefs have another inviting matchup against a weak defense in Week 7. Patrick Mahomes should have no problem shredding one of the worst secondaries in the NFL, resulting in another relatively comfortable win for Kansas City.

The Chiefs should win this game by a touchdown or more, making this our NFL bet of the day. I wouldn’t be surprised if the line shifts towards Kansas City -5 or Kansas City -5.5 later in the week, so make sure to jump on this one now.

Detroit Lions at Los Angeles Rams (4:05 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Lions (+700), Rams (-1100)
  • Spread: Lions +15.5 (-115), Rams -15.5 (-105)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 50 (-110), Under 50 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Lions 17.25, Rams 32.75

Philadelphia Eagles at Las Vegas Raiders (4:05 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Eagles (+140), Raiders (-160)
  • Spread: Eagles +3 (-110), Raiders -3 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 48 (-110), Under 48 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Eagles 22.5, Raiders 25.5

Houston Texans at Arizona Cardinals (4:25 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Texans (+850), Cardinals (-1600)
  • Spread: Texans +17 (-110), Cardinals -17 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 48 (-110), Under 48 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Texans 15.5, Cardinals 32.5

Chicago Bears at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4:25 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Bears (+550), Buccaneers (-800)
  • Spread: Bears +12.5 (-110), Buccaneers -12.5 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 49 (-110), Under 49 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Bears 18.25, Buccaneers 30.75

Indianapolis Colts at San Francisco 49ers (Sunday Night Football, 8:20 p.m. ET, Caesars)

  • Moneyline: Colts (+170), 49ers (-200)
  • Spread: Colts +4 (-110), 49ers -4 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 44.5 (-110), Under 44.5 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Colts 20.25, 49ers 24.5
