Saints

The Chicago Bears have had two weeks to stew about an upset loss to the Oakland Raiders that snapped the team's three-game winning streak. Coming off their bye week, the Bears will hope to get their offensive struggles rectified with the expected return of quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to the lineup when they host the surging New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon. Trubisky was injured in a Week 4 win over Minnesota and sat out against the Raiders due to a dislocated left shoulder, but he practiced fully Thursday and is on track to start.  I’m not sure that really helps the Bears offense.

The Saints have been without their starting quarterback since Drew Brees suffered a thumb injury in Week 2, but backup Teddy Bridgewater has guided the team to four consecutive victories. “There’s calmness about him -- I think it’s contagious, if you will -- and how he approaches things,” New Orleans coach Sean Payton said. 

Although Bridgewater threw for 314 yards and matched a career high with four scoring passes in Week 5, he struggled against Jacksonville last week and is averaging only 217.8 yards passing. Bridgewater may have to do more this week against Chicago's rugged defense with the absence of star running back Alvin Kamara (ankle/knee).

Latavius Murray will get the start while wide receiver Michael Thomas (NFL-high 53 catches) is the top option in the passing game. New Orleans has been stout defensively, allowing 40 points over the past three games.

Saints are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 7 and are a solid 22-8 ATS in their last 30 road games.

Bears are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 7.

Saints are 4-0-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

Take the points with the Saints on the road.

Seahawks

Russell Wilson is the early favorite to be named NFL MVP, but Lamar Jackson might be the league's most exciting player. The two quarterbacks clash on Sunday, when Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks host Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens.

Wilson has been winning plenty of games for his team as well and owns 14 touchdowns without an interception while completing 72.5 percent of his passes. 

Wilson's play has helped overcome some gaps on defense which the team hopes will be filled this week by the return of defensive tackle Jarran Reed, who sat out the first six games.

Ravens are 7-23-1 ATS in their last 31 games in October and are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.

Seahawks are 8-1-1 ATS in their last 10 games in Week 7 and are 4-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.

Ravens are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings.

Simply put this is a very tough spot for the Ravens and their young QB. Take the Seahawks.

Jaguars

The Jags head to Cincinnati to take on one of the worst teams in the league. In Week 6, Gardner Minshew was humbled by New Orleans’ swarming defense. Minshew only managed 163 yards passing. Was Minshew’s bad game because of the Saints’ defensive excellence (I say yes). In Week 6, the Bengals were unable to sustain offense against a bad Ravens defense; Cincinnati could not run the ball at all. The Bengals' offense already ranked near the bottom of the league, and an anemic performance against Baltimore did nothing to change that.

RB Leonard Fournetteshould find the going easy against a Bengals rush defense that is last in every major category and QB Gardner Minshew gets back on track.

Jaguars are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games on fieldturf. Bengals are 1-7 ATS in their last 8 home games.

Lay the points with the Jags on the road.

Vikings

The Lions maybe thankful they have a short week to prepare to play Minnesota in a possibly pivotal NFC North matchup. A quick turnaround gave the Lions less time to lament critical calls that didn't go their way on Monday night in a loss at Green Bay.

The Lions have dropped two straight after an unbeaten, three-game start because it failed to keep double-digit leads against the Packers and Kansas City Chiefs.

Minnesota has averaged 33 points the past two weeks with a grinding running game led by Dalvin Cook that helps Kirk Cousins make big plays through the air. After a slow start, Cousins had six touchdown passes and one interception in wins over Philadelphia and the New York Giants.

Minnesota’s resurgent passing game has grabbed headlines but Cook (583 rushing yards) is still the engine that powers the offense. Detroit is vulnerable, ranking 27th against the run.

The Lions lost to the Packers at least in part because they scored only one touchdown and had to settle for five field goals. That followed a trend. In goal-to-go situations, Detroit ranks 30th in the NFL with four touchdowns in nine chances.

Look for much of the same for the Lions because they were relegated to scoring only on field goals in two losses to Minnesota last year.

Vikings are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 games in October and are 38-14-1 ATS in their last 53 games on fieldturf.

Lions are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

Vikings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Detroit.

Vikings take it on the road.

Colts

With Andrew Luck's surprising retirement on the eve of the regular season, the debate over the best quarterback in the AFC South was settled and Houston's Deshaun Watson became the obvious choice. Watson will try to guide the Houston Texans to a third consecutive win when they visit the Colts on Sunday.

Watson guided the Texans offense to a combined 84 points in wins over the Atlanta Falcons and the Kansas City Chiefs (Two bad defenses) in the last two games.

Houston battled through some uneven performances offensively before hitting its stride over the last two games and I’m keeping that in mind.

The Colts may not have Luck any longer, but they remain right behind Houston in the AFC South standings and got an extra week to prepare after earning their own win over Kansas City, 19-13 in Week 5. 

Jacoby Brissett is proving to be a capable replacement for Luck under center, but the Indianapolis offense is built around the offensive line and the running game, led by Marlon Mack. He bounced back from a sub-par effort in a loss to Oakland in Week 4 by rumbling for 132 yards on 29 carries in Week 5 behind an offensive line that dominated up front. Colts LB Darius Leonard (concussion) sat out the last three games but cleared the protocol and returned to practice this week and he will be a big addition to the defense.

Texans are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 road games vs. a team with a winning home record and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win.

Colts are 16-5-1 ATS in their last 22 home games vs. a team with a winning road record and are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games following a bye week.

Texans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

Take the Colts at home.
