It’s hard to believe, but it’s already Week 7, which means it’s time for more player and team prop picks from bet365. I have three more plays this week for your NFL picks, and with the steady successes we’ve been having, it would be wise to add these to your plays this week.
Minnesota Vikings O/U 22.5 Points
The Vikings have a plus matchup this week on the road in Detroit, a team they have already beaten once this season. However, despite throwing up 26 points on them at home in Week 2, the Vikings come in with a points total of only 22.5 against one of the NFL’s worst defenses. Detroit has given up 29 points per game this season, and it would have been a lot more if it wasn’t for one game against the Seahawks where they only gave up 13 points, and still lost. Minnesota’s balanced attack should be able to score well over 22 points this week, making the over one of my favorite team prop plays of Week 7. Take the over and add it to your NFL picks at bet365.
NFL Pick: OVER 22.5 points (-125)
Ravens vs. Cardinals O/U 3.5 FGs
We crashed and burned on this prop last week, however, I am recharged and ready to get a win on a field goal prop this week. While field goals are hard to predict, looking at the numbers says these two are primed for a game where there could be plenty of kicking. For starters, despite their defense being horrible this season, the Ravens are actually a top ten team in red zone defense, making the Cardinals kicking game look even better this week. Combine that with their red zone defense being one of the better units over the last three games, and you have a recipe for field goals. Both teams have great kickers and to top it off, the Ravens have giving up the most field goals and field goal attempts than any other team so far this season at 17/19. These two teams are both top ten in giving up field goals to their opponents this season, and combined they have given up 30 field goals on the year. Take the over on this one, and add it to your NFL team prop picks.
NFL Pick: OVER 3.5 FGs (+120)
Browns vs. Rams O/U 4.5 TDs
The Cleveland Browns have a tough task this week, as they head into the Edward Jones Dome to play the Rams. Cleveland’s offense has actually been pretty solid this season. They are top 12 in total offense, and their passing game has been better than anyone could have predicted. However, the Rams’ defense is also one of the better units in all of football, especially at home with their fans making a ton of noise. Combine that with the fact that the Rams are dead last in total offense so far this season, and the under looks like a great play. Five touchdowns might be wishful thinking for this game, especially with a game total of only 41½ on the NFL odds board. Look for more field goals than touchdowns, and the under to come in strong for our final team prop of Sunday’s Week 7 slate.
NFL Pick: UNDER 4.5 TDs (-125)
