NFL Week 7 Early Advanced ‘Look-Ahead’ Betting Lines – Patriots at Steelers a Pick’emDavid Butler II-USA TODAY Sports - USA TODAY Sports

On Wednesday afternoon the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook released their advanced betting lines, also known as look-ahead lines. These early lines give some clairvoyant risk takers an opportunity to roll the dice on games that will not be played for another week and a half. There are times when public reaction to the most recent game clouds reality, and for a moment one can exploit the odds on an overrated or underrated team – or be done in by an unforeseen injury.

Week 7 features a highly anticipated game between two of the NFL’s best teams. The New England Patriots travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers in a battle for supremacy in the AFC. Although the game is being played at Heinz Field, some Vegas handicappers have determined that the Patriots are a formidable enough team to negate the hometown advantage at Heinz Field. In a bit of an anomaly this is one of four games listed at even odds.

The big game kicks off at 4:25 pm eastern time a week from Sunday. The showdown will be televised on CBS and will be available in all but two markets (Atlanta and San Francisco) in the US.

As a prelude the Patriots host Cincinnati this weekend, and Pittsburgh is at Miami. Here is a look ahead at the full Week 7 schedule and their initial odds. Carolina and Dallas will be off with a bye.

 

NFL Week 7 Early Advanced ‘Look-Ahead’ Betting Lines

 

Thursday October 20:

Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (-10½) [CBS]

 

Sunday October 23 Early Games:

New York Giants (-2) ‘at’ Los Angeles Rams, in London [NFLN]

Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles (-1) [FOX]

New Orleans Saints at Kansas City Chiefs (-7) [FOX]

Washington Redskins at Detroit Lions (-2½) [FOX]

Cleveland Browns at Cincinnati Bengals (-10½) [CBS]

Buffalo Bills (-3) at Miami Dolphins [CBS]

Oakland Raiders (-2½) at Jacksonville Jaguars [CBS]

Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans (Pk) [CBS]

Baltimore Ravens at New York Jets (Pk) [CBS]

 

Sunday October 23 Late Games:

San Diego Chargers at Atlanta Falcons (-5½) [FOX]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at San Francisco 49ers (Pk) [FOX]

New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers (Pk) [CBS]

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals (-1) [NBC]

 

Monday October 24:

Houston Texans at Denver Broncos (-6½) [BSPN]

 

As for tomorrow night’s game, perhaps it is wishful thinking – but San Diego is overdue for a win. The Chargers have played well enough to be 5-0 – if the games were just a few ticks short of 60 minutes long. Which team is going to win one for the gipper? Denver, with their head coach hospitalized? Or San Diego, with Mike McCoy one more last-minute loss away from probably being fired? I’ll go with the home team and their proven quarterback over the road team on a short week, with either two inexperienced QBs – one injured and one shell shocked.

Prediction: Chargers 20, Broncos 17
Chargers +3½ (one unit). . . . under 45 . . . . San Diego +155
