On Sunday, they face the formidable task of killer deal trying to beat the 8-1 Saints in New Orleans. Since dropping their season opener to Tampa Bay, the Saints have not lost. Head coach Sean Payton has the NFL’s most prolific offense (36.7 points per game) and the league’s best run defense. Despite two consecutive losses, the Carolina Panthers (6-4) still have control of their playoff destiny.
Under Of The Week: Showdown Or Slowdown
They’re scoring just 17.4 points per game, the second-fewest in the NFL. Baltimore’s defense has been dealing with several injuries lately, but they should be able to dominate this Giants’ offense with how poorly they’ve been playing as of late. Colt McCoy got the start last week as he completed 19 of 31 passes for 221 yards, and he’s at least been more efficient than Daniel Jones.

The Giants are just 3-8 ATS at MetLife Stadium over their last 11 home contests dating to last season. This game opened in August with Miami as 3.5-point home favorites, but has since been adjusted to the Falcons as 2.5-point road favorites at SI Sportsbook. Let’s take an early look-ahead at several of the biggest games that have garnered significant betting attention, resulting in noticeable line moves on the weekend slate. Week 7 begins with a primetime showdown between the Broncos and Browns on Thursday Night Football. The Browns are currently a 3.5-point home favorite and the total sits at 42.5, according to the odds atSI Sportsbook.
Caesars Sports vice president of trading Craig Mucklow reported a six-figure sharp bet for Thursday’s game between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons. Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy, the 6-1 third choice, and New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick, the +850 fourth pick, are the two biggest liabilities at Circa Sports. The Saints have covered in 15 of their last 19 games on the road or at a neutral site. The total has gone UNDER in each of the last five Bengals games and three of the last four Ravens contests.
Best Week 11 Thursday Night Football Game Lines: Pats Vs Falcons
The Cowboys are 2-1 as rookie Dak Prescott took over for the injured Tony Romo and led Dallas to two victories. The former Mississippi State quarterback has yet to throw an interception and is doing an admirable job running the Cowboys’ offense. Carson Palmer should be back for the Cardinals who got a much needed win over San Francisco last week. The win was costly though as both guards on the offensive line, Evan Mathis and Mike Iupati, went down with injuries. Mathis is done for the season, but Iupati is listed as questionable. He had surgery to clean up some damage to a knee and, thanks to a bye week, was back in action last week.
Week 7 Nfl Odds: Spreads & Over
Cincinnati appeared headed to a victory over AFC North rival Pittsburgh last week, but gave up a late touchdown pass in a loss. The Packers need a win as they must face the Patriots next week, the Vikings again – they tied earlier this season – an improving Chicago late in the season. A crucial part of the Packers’ success may rely on a running game that is improving but is still ranked 20th in the NFL (103.7 yards per game). New Orleans has lost the last two games it has played against the Vikings. The Saints line up one of the NFL’s most potent offenses behind the record-breaking veteran quarterback Drew Brees. Last week, Brees became just the third quarterback to surpass 500 career touchdown passes in a win over Baltimore.

Atlanta is similar with both Freeman and Coleman in the backfield and Jones on the outside. If New England allows Ryan and his cast to have success, the Patriots could be in for a long night. Sunday night’s game is the first of three consecutive road games.
