There might be some debate regarding what teams are among the NFL’s best, but there’s no question as to who is the league’s worst team. The Cleveland Browns are still looking for their first victory in 2016, and it’s no surprise that they are the biggest underdogs in Week 7.
The Browns are 10-point underdogs, even though they are facing a struggling Cincinnati Bengals team. Cincinnati is 2-4, coming off two straight double-digit losses. But Cleveland is the only winless NFL team, and they’ve lost three consecutive matchups against the Bengals by at least 21 points.
The Chicago Bears are the only other team getting at least nine points in Week 7. As one of four teams with exactly one victory this season, Chicago is a heavy underdog against the Green Bay Packers on “Thursday Night Football.” Green Bay is looking to bounce back from a 14-point loss at home against the Dallas Cowboys, who have a bye in Week 7, along with the Carolina Panthers.
Two games feature betting lines of just one point. The Washington Redskins are underdogs in their visit to Detroit, and the New York Jets are slight home favorites over the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore, however, might be favored by the time the game kicks off on Sunday, considering how poorly New York has played during their five-game losing streak.
The Jets could become the fifth team that’s an underdog in their home stadium. The New England Patriots are the biggest road favorites, giving seven points to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The New York Giants are technically road favorites against the Los Angeles Rams, but the game is being played in London.
The Denver Broncos are favored on “Monday Night Football,” despite having suffered two straight losses. The Atlanta Falcons and San Diego Chargers beat Denver in consecutive weeks, and now the two teams will face off in what’s expected to be the highest-scoring game on the upcoming schedule.
