In addition to our preview here, BettingPlanet has also provided in-depth betting analysis of two of the biggest matches of the week:
NFL Week 7 betting tips:
All games in parlay are on Sunday, October 21
LA Chargers to cover -6.5 at -111.11
Minnesota Vikings to cover -3.5 at -111.11
LA Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers Over 52.5 at -111.11
Leg 1 – Tennessee Titans vs. L.A. Chargers
The Chargers are 4-2 and they have won three in a row. Hard to tell how good this team is, as their two losses have come against the Kansas City Chiefs and L.A. Rams, who have a combined one loss and their three wins have come against sub .500 teams. Still the Bolts have balance and a great due on the backfield in quarterback Phillip Rivers and running back Melvin Gordon, who each had big games last week in L.A.’s 38-14 win over the Cleveland Browns.
The Titans have lost two in a row where they have only totaled 12 points. they were shut out in their last game losing to the Baltimore Ravens 21-0 where they only had 106 total yards. While the Tennessee defense ranks third in the league in points against they only rank 30th in points per game.
Rivers will pick apart to the Titans’ secondary in London, where this game is, and the Bolts will easily win and cover the spread.
Tip: L.A. Chargers to cover (-6.5) at -111.11 with 5Dimes
Leg 2 – Minnesota Vikings vs. New York Jets
The Vikings have won two in a row and after their defense struggled early they are getting back to being solid, but not great like last season. Kirk Cousins has fit in well in his first season with Minnesota and he has the fifth most passing yards in the league. However, he is not getting much help from the rushing offense that only ranks 28th.
The Jets have won two in a row where combined for 76 points. Sam Darnold has played well, but still has issues with the interception. The run game is the strength of New York ranking seventh in the league in rushing yards per game.
Have to go with the Vikings to win and cover, as Cousins will be facing a Jets’ pass defense that only ranks 22nd in the league and the Minnesota defense will keep Darnold and company in check.
Tip: Minnesota Vikings to cover (-3.5) at -111.11 with 5Dimes
Leg 3 – LA Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers
The Rams are the last unbeaten team in the league and they are balanced to say the least. They rank in the top seven in the NFL in passing and rushing yards per game and in points per game and points allowed per game. Jared Goff and Todd Gurley are legit early-season MVP candidates and their last game was their first one they did not score at least 33 points.
The 49ers have lost four in a row and they lost a tough Monday Night game in their last one falling to the Green Bay Packers 33-30 on the road. While they can run the ball, the defense is the big issue in San Francisco only ranking 29th in the league giving up an average of 29.8 points per game.
The Rams have an Over record of 8-3 in their last 11 road games and the 49ers have an Over record of 5-0 in their last 5 games period. Yeah, take the Over in this NFC West matchup.
Tip: Over 52.5 points at -111.11 with 5Dimes
