By the time we get to NFL Week 7, we will have a clear idea of who the top contenders are, and which teams will already be looking ahead to the draft. Sure, a lot can change in the second half of the season, but things should still be relatively clear at this stage of the season.We have some really big games on tap for Week 7 of the 2018 season, and while it’s tough to know at this point just how much these games will mean in the grand scheme of things, we are pretty sure that the match-ups that we are going to focus on here will almost certainly be grabbing the attention of all NFL betting enthusiasts.
NFL Week 7 Must Bet Games – 2018 Season
Tennessee Titans vs LA ChargersThe Tennessee Titans made some real progress in 2017, getting into the playoffs and picking up a win in the Wild Card round. With success comes greater expectations, and this is a team that is supposed to be challenging for the top spot in the AFC South this season.Week 7 will deliver a stern test for this group, as they will be making the long trip West to face an LA Chargers teams that just missed out on the postseason last year. The Chargers are another team with a real shot at the postseason, but it’s going to be interesting to see where they stand in Week 7, as slow starts have become a habit for them.
Carolina Panthers vs Philadelphia EaglesIt was a bounce-back year for the Panthers in 2017, as they won 11 games and came close to nabbing the top spot in the NFC South. That division promises to be very good again this season, with most of the divisional games coming late in the season.The Panthers will almost certainly be using a game against the defending Super Bowl champions as something of a measuring stick this season, as will every team who faces the Eagles. The champs are going to be tough to beat at home, but if the Panthers play at the level they did last year, we could be in for a treat here.
Houston Texans vs Jacksonville JaguarsThese are two teams coming into the season feeling as though they have something to prove. For the Texans, they will be looking to show that they are a whole lot better than the 4-win team they were last year. With a healthy JJ Watt and DeShaun Watson in the line-up.For the Jaguars, this season will be all about proving that their run to the AFC Conference Final last season was not a fluke. These two could well be competing for top spot in the AFC South, making this match-up a critical one.
New Orleans Saints vs Baltimore RavensIt’s always fun to see teams with wildly contrasting styles go head to head, which is exactly what we will be getting with this game. The New Orleans Saints are going to continue to chuck the ball all over the field for as long as Drew Brees is under center, but they also now have a killer running game to match their pass attack.The Ravens built a pair of championship teams by playing hard-hitting defense, and it will be that unit that is called upon again this season to carry this team. This should be a fun one to watch.
