The Patriots and 49ers entered the season with Super Bowl aspirations, but both enter Week 7 in desperate need of a win. The latest Week 7 NFL odds from William Hill list New England as a 2.5-point favorite at home as the Patriots look to avoid losing their third straight game. On the other end of the spectrum, the Titans and Steelers have survived several tight games to enter the week undefeated. The latest Week 7 NFL Vegas lines give the Titans a 1.5-point edge in a must-see AFC clash.

Where is the value in those NFL betting lines? And which NFL spreads should you target for your Week 7 NFL bets? All of the Week 7 NFL lines are listed below, and SportsLine’s advanced computer model has all the NFL betting advice and predictions you need to make the best Week 7 NFL picks now.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times and is up over $7,800 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL picks since its inception five-plus years ago.

It’s off to a strong 14-6 roll on top-rated NFL picks this season. The model enters Week 7 on an incredible 110-71 roll on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. The model also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch in three of the past four years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 95 percent of CBS Sports office pool players three times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, it has examined the latest Week 7 NFL odds and NFL betting lines from William Hill, simulated every snap, and its predictions are in. Head to SportsLine now to see them all.

Top NFL predictions for Week 7

One of the top Week 7 NFL predictions the model recommends: The Saints (-7) cover at home against the Panthers. Carolina had its three-game winning streak snapped in Week 6 as it lost 23-16 to the Bears. The Panthers (+1.5) failed to cover in that game for the first time since Week 2. 

New Orleans has won two straight against Carolina, including a 42-10 victory last December in which the Saints (+18.5) covered a large spread with room to spare. SportsLine’s model is calling for Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray to combine for almost 150 yards on the ground as the Saints cover in well over 50 percent of simulations. The over (50) also clears almost 70 percent of the time. 

Another one of the top Week 7 NFL predictions from the model: New England covers as a 2.5-point home favorite against San Francisco. New England limps into Sunday’s contest having lost two consecutive games. Quarterback Cam Newton threw for just 157 yards and two interceptions last week in his first start since testing positive for COVID-19.

Despite the lackluster performance, Newton averaged over seven yards per carry and scored a touchdown on the ground. He has now scored five rushing touchdowns this season, and he’ll look to take advantage of an injury-depleted San Francisco defense on Sunday.

In addition, the Patriots have been sensational at home in recent years, winning 16 of their last 20 games at Gillette Stadium. Plus, New England is 5-2 against the spread in its last seven games against the NFC West. SportsLine’s model predicts Newton will throw for over 200 yards and average over four yards per carry against the Niners, resulting in the Patriots covering the spread in well over 50 percent of simulations.

The model also has made the call on every other game on the Week 7 NFL schedule. It’s also identified a Super Bowl contender that goes down hard. You can only get every pick for every game here.
