Two teams remain undefeated through six weeks of the 2013 NFL season, while three are still searching for their first win. Week Seven begins with six of the eight division being decided by one game or less.
The Thursday night game starts the week’s NFL action with an NFC West matchup. The Seattle Seahawks are 6.5-point road favorites against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals have yet to lose at home this season.
Week Seven features only one betting line in the double-digits. The Green Bay Packers are 10.5-point favorites over the Cleveland Browns. The defending NFC North champs are heavy favorites, despite having the same number of wins as their opponent.
The smallest point spread on the schedule involves the contest between the Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins. Robert Griffin III and company are just 1-4, but at home they’re giving the Bears one point.
The Sunday evening game is one of the most anticipated of 2013, while it might be difficult to find a worse matchup for Monday's contest. Closing out the weekend is Peyton Manning’s return to Indianapolis, where he last played when the Colts lost in the playoffs to the New York Jets in 2010. It is also a potential preview of the AFC Championship Game. The next evening, the 1-4 Minnesota Vikings visit the winless New York Giants. It’s the second time in three weeks that the Giants are favored.
Both the New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders are idle, coming off their worst performances of the season. The Saints were defeated for the first time, as they watched Tom Brady and the New England Patriots score a game-winning touchdown in the final seconds. Oakland suffered their biggest loss of the year, falling to the Kansas City Chiefs by 17 points.
