The last time we saw the New Orleans Saints (4-1), they were celebrating the all-time passing yardage record by quarterback Drew Brees in a 43-19 rout of the Washington Redskins two weeks ago on Monday Night Football. Now coming off their bye, the Saints will face one of their toughest tests on Sunday when they visit the Baltimore Ravens (4-2) as 2.5-point road underdogs on the NFL Week 7 odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
New Orleans has lost six of the past seven meetings with Baltimore both straight up and against the spread, according to the OddsShark NFL Database, proving this matchup will be no easy task for one of the NFC’s best teams. However, the Saints are riding a four-game winning streak versus AFC opponents, going 2-2 ATS in those games.
Meanwhile, the Ravens have won six of seven at home, going 2-0 SU and ATS there this season. Baltimore has played three straight on the road and four of five.
Another hot team will kick off Sunday’s action early in London as the Los Angeles Chargers (4-2) meet the Tennessee Titans (3-3). The Chargers have won three in a row and find themselves just one game back of the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. Los Angeles is a 6.5-point favorite and has won 10 of the previous 11 meetings with Tennessee, going 9-0-1 ATS in the past 10.
But Tennessee is 6-2 ATS in its last eight as an underdog and has gone 5-1 SU in its last six after suffering consecutive losses.
The New England Patriots (4-2) handed the Chiefs their first setback last week, and they head to the Windy City next to take on the Chicago Bears (3-2) as three-point road betting favorites. The Patriots have won four straight over the Bears by an average of 16 points. Chicago is 9-1-1 ATS in its last 11 games as a home underdog though.
Like New England, the Dallas Cowboys (3-3) will attempt to run their series winning streak against their opponent to five games when they visit the Redskins (3-2) as 1.5-point road underdogs. Washington is coming off a 23-17 win over the Carolina Panthers as a one-point underdog but is just 1-6 SU and ATS in its last seven divisional games.
Another key divisional matchup in the AFC will see the Houston Texans (3-3) try to continue the recent struggles of the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-3). The Texans have won six of the previous eight games in the series, although they are 0-3 ATS in the last three. The Jaguars have won eight of nine at home to go along with a 6-3 mark ATS.
Finally, Kansas City will try to rebound from its 43-40 loss at New England again on Sunday night when the Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) visit Arrowhead Stadium as six-point road underdogs. The Bengals are 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS in the past four meetings.
