Lamar Jackson looked like an MVP as he shredded the Cleveland defense for just short of 300 yards passing and added another 45 yards on the ground. Two AFC North teams coming off disappointing losses in week one but in very different fashion as Joe Burrow almost led the Bengals to a late comeback win but fell in a crushing loss to the Chargers. While the Browns got absolutely dismantled by a great Baltimore Ravens team on the road. Denver is coming off a tough loss late to the Tennessee Titans where Drew Lock came up just short at the end, losing on a late field goal. Overall the Broncos performed well against a Titans team with playoff aspirations. Drew Lock has the team heading in the right direction, but will need a great game to get past that top Steelers defense.

Nfl Week 7 Thursday Night Football Betting Odds
Not to take too much credit away from Green Bay who played very hard on defense on their look at this way to a low scoring win against the division rivals of the NFC North. The high powered Kansas City offense lead by third year quarterback and last year’s MVP Patrick Mahommes opened up the 2019 season with an impressive win in Jacksonville. Lighting up a Jaguars defense that many consider to be quite good this season with names like Myles Jack and Jalen Ramsey patrolling the defensive backfield in Jacksonville.
Henry could have another huge game, if not bigger than the one he showed in Week 6, against Kansas City. Week 6 was a wild one as the Chiefs lost their second in a row and we found out that San Francisco was for real. I had the Rams to cover, and they were shut down like they never have been shut down before. The Saints were my upset pick being road dogs, and that was the lone win of Week 6. The Bengals-Ravens started out hot and looked like it was going to hit the over, only to dud out in the second half.
The usually productive Pittsburgh running game was held to 27 yards. The Steelers do get Le’Veon Bell back from suspension this week and the Chiefs did give up over a 130 yards on the ground to the Jets last week. The Seahawks are 3-1 thanks, in large part, to a stingy defense that is giving up just 13.5 points per game . The offense struggled early but has scored 37 and 27 points in its last two games, both wins. Quarterback Russell Wilson will have had a week off to recover from a minor injury and Atlanta will have to battle the elements at CenturyLink Field which includes the 12th man, Seattle’s home crowd. If Arizona can apply pressure to Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, he is susceptible to throwing interceptions.
Week 8 Betting Lines: Packers At Chiefs
The Washington Football Team continue their tough season against a Green Bay Packers side who are on a five game winning streak, and look good to take that to six at Lambeau Field on Sunday. The books got absolutely destroyed last week as nearly every favorite won and covered the spread. This week we are faced with an interesting slate, featuring three double-digit underdogs and plenty of short road favorites. The Seahawks, with Geno Smith, nearly knocked off the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road last week.
Hilton, who is still listed as questionable ahead of Monday’s game with a hamstring issue. Dropped passes and penalties were the theme of the day, while the bulk of Indy’s chances once again fell into the hands of Andrew Luck. The Bears’ receivers are nowhere near the calibre of Kansas City’s, but if Chicago challenges New England with plenty of motion at the line and deep passes, they can win this.
Opening Week 7 Texans Vs Cardinals Odds Plus Early Movement
FanDuel put the Steelers win total at 8.5 in the expanded 17-game season and +170 for them to make the playoffs. The Browns have failed to cover the spread in eight of their last nine games against AFC North opponents. The Cardinals may be 4-2 but it’s worth noting they got their wins against the 49ers, the Washington Football Team, the Jets and the Cowboys; not exactly the NFL’s elite. QB Kyler Murray will need another strong performance in this game, which should be manageable against Seattle’s struggling secondary.
