  • Using the Action Network's betting tools, we've broken down the key numbers, most lopsided spreads & totals and the biggest line moves of NFL Week 7.

Key Numbers

Chiefs (-3) at Broncos: The Chiefs are stumbling and bumbling and by God, the betting market is reacting.

A couple weeks ago, Kansas City was undefeated and the Broncos were winless. I reckon most folks would’ve guessed this line was K.C. -7 rather than K.C. -3, but here we are.

It’s quite the Pros vs. Joes affair, but the sharps have forced this line down from the 4-5 point region down to the most important number in NFL betting.

Saints at Bears (-3): We have very similar line movement in Chicago, but everything else about this game is different.

After opening as a 4-point road dog, the public has pounded the Saints down to +3 against da Bears, who will likely be led by Chase Daniel once again.

Odds as of Wednesday afternoon and via PointsBet, where Action Network users get an exclusive 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150).

The Bears just lost to the Raiders over in London, and quite frankly, Teddy Bridgewater’s Saints look pretty darn good.

They’ve won all four of Bridgewater’s starts — two high scoring games, two low scoring games —  and remain one of the league’s best teams despite missing Drew Brees.
