Welcome back to the PlayUSA Bets Navigator!
We took a brief hiatus but only so we could retool some things. For those needing a refresher, each week PlayUSA will gather three bets we are watching throughout the NFL betting season.
You should know, were are not professional oddsmakers in any way, shape, or form. Although, we do follow the legal US betting market and NFL odds, this content is strictly from a personal perspective. In short, we want to have a little fun with it.
Now, let’s dive into Week 7.
Bets we are watching: Week 7
With several teams on a bye week, we had to dig a bit deeper to find a few tasty bets to watch. But regardless, the navigator train must keep moving forward.
NFL week 7 odds come by way of DraftKings Sportsbook. More odds below:
Season record: 1-2
Houston Texans at Arizona Cardinals (-17.5)
The Cardinals have completely smoked — by NFL standards — every team they have played except for the Minnesota Vikings and division rival, San Francisco. This week, Arizona hosts the 1-5 Houston Texans. Could this be a trap game for Kyler Murray and Co.? Probably not. Can the team win by 18 points? They have the talent to do so.
Remember, this is a point spread bet. The Cardinals need to win by 18 points.
Baltimore Ravens over 3.5 Total Team TDs
In six weeks of work, Lamar Jackson has managed at least one touchdown per game. In addition, the Ravens have been held under 30 points only twice this year. Enter the 4-2 Cincinnati Bengals who have, up to this point, faced teams with a combined record of 15-21. Regardless, the Bengals’ defense is good — not great — but good. Still, is it enough to slow down the Ravens’ electric passing game? The winner of this game needs to score in batches. So, a four-TD game from the Ravens sounds promising.
This is a classic moneyline bet, thus, Baltimore has to score 4 TDs at any point in the game to win the bed.
Marquise Brown + Hunter Renfrow + Chris Godwin all to score (anytime)
3-Leg Parlay: +1109
That’s right, this week we have a wide receiver feast. Marquise Brown (WR-BAL) has been one of Jackson’s downfield targets all season. The Bengals are not known for their lockdown corners, which is why Hollywood is on the list.
Renfrow (WR-LV) is building a strong rapport with Derrick Carr and is one of his go-to targets in the red zone.
Lastly, with all the weapons at Tom Brady’s disposal there might have been one too many for a decent Bears team to cover. I expect Godwin (WR-TB) to sneak one into the end zone.
Since this is a parlay bet, all three players listed above need to score a TD (anytime) in order for the bet to win.
