Week seven of the NFL season is upon us and just three unbeaten teams remain. One of these will lose their unbeaten record this weekend, while the play-off race continues to heat up.
With plenty of storylines and some intriguing divisional match-ups to look forward to, we preview the best bets from the upcoming NFL weekend, alongside our ambassador Jason Bell.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Tennessee Titans
Unbeaten Tennessee Titans take on unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers in the week seven thriller on Sunday. The Titans have continued where they left off the back of last season as Derrick Henry continues to run other teams into the ground through his monster displays, while Ryan Tannehill’s career renaissance continues to impress.
The Steelers, after an off year with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger injured, are well and truly back as they lead a competitive AFC North with a perfect 5-0 record and a stingy defence that’s given up the least points of any side in the NFL this season.
The Titans are small favourites at 5/6 with home advantage, with the Steelers at Evens. It should be a thrilling match-up, as well as a tactical battle between coaches Mike Vrabel and Mike Tomlin, but there may not be the points everyone hopes for. With the over/under sitting at 50.5 points and two good defences on show, taking the under here might be the play at 20/21.
Seattle Seahawks @ Arizona Cardinals
The NFC West has a real claim to be the best division in American football at the moment, with last year’s NFC champions San Francisco 49ers sitting in last place with a .500 record. The 5-0 Seattle Seahawks travel to Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in this divisional rivalry looking to keep their perfect season alive.
The hosts, driven by a dynamic partnership between Kyler Murray and star wideout DeAndre Hopkins, are 8/5 for the win, while Russell Wilson’s Seattle side are 5/9 to continue their stellar season success.
With the Seahawks explosive offense, this could quickly get away from second-year QB Murray, with Seattle 13/10 to win by seven or more.
Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos
An AFC West match-up features on the Sunday late slate, as the 5-1 Kansas City Chiefs face a Denver Broncos side that have recently welcomed back their starting quarterback.
While the Broncos have had an unremarkable start to the season, a gritty win over the New England Patriots last time out has them slowly creeping into the play-off picture. Two losses this season have been by less than a score, against both the Titans and the Steelers, so the team is definitely better than their record.
However, Kansas City are one of the toughest teams to face in the NFL right now, and are worthy 2/9 favourites. Denver, despite being hosts, are just 37/10 to get the win at Mile High. However, this Denver side haven’t rolled over at any point this year, and the handicap of 9.5 is high for a home game, so the Broncos are an attractive option on a +9.5 handicap at 10/11.
