Denver Broncos vs. Cleveland Browns
Hello everyone and welcome to our NFL Week 7 picks here at BetWithUS and thank you for being part of
our team. Again, this week we start with the Thursday Night matchup featuring the Browns hosting the
Broncos. For me this breakdown is simple.
The Browns will be without their starting QB, top 2 RBS, and possibly their top wideout in Odell
Beckham Jr. The Broncos come in off a disappointing loss vs the Raiders but will have the health, talent,
and continuity advantage on a short week and are getting points. For me that’s too many boxes
checked off, so I’ll take the points and the road team here.
My Pick: Denver +2.5 at -110 (1.91)
Kansas City Chiefs vs. Tennessee Titans
For our second play this week lets head to Sunday and talk about a game where there should be
fireworks when the Titans host the Chiefs. This game has a massive total of 57.5 with the Chiefs favored
by 5.5. For me that number is too high on the road for a team that struggles to cover the spread and is
abysmal against the run on the road.
The Titans may be without Julio Jones, but the return of AJ Brown and the dominance of Derrick Henry
makes this a very good and balanced offense. I expect a close back and forth game with both defenses
struggling to stop the opposing offense. Whoever has the ball last may very well be the winner in this
matchup and for that reason I expect a very close game, so I’ll take the home team and the points.
My Pick: Tennessee +5.5 at -110 (1.91)
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Las Vegas Raiders
For our third and final game this week we are going to head out to Vegas where the Raiders are hosting
the Eagles. Neither of these teams inspire much confidence in terms of winning or losing but both
defenses are vulnerable enough where we should see some points. The Eagles offense is predicated on
the legs and arm of Jalen Hurts and although he may struggle early this team finds a way to score late.
The Raiders are coming off a big and emotional win last week vs Denver after losing their head coach,
but they do struggle against the run and besides Casey Hayward have a lot of holes in their secondary.
For me I’m leaning to the team with the lowest total in a game that I think has a sneaky chance to be
very high scoring. For that reason, I’m taking the lower of the two team totals with a mobile
quarterback who can keep plays alive.
My Pick: Eagles team total over 22.5 at -125 (1.8)
