Betting the moneyline on NFL underdogs is a great way to boost your sports betting bankroll. I have a trio of moneyline upset picks for NFL Week 7 action. Happy hunting!
Moneyline Upset Picks NFL Week 7
Denver Broncos at Arizona Cardinals
When: Thursday, Oct. 18 at 8:20 pm ET
Where: State Farm Stadium, Glendale, AZ
Odds: Broncos -1.5
Analysis: Denver played a marvelous game in defeat, losing by only 3 points in Week 6 to the 2019 Super Bowl favored L.A. Rams. Now, Denver must head to Arizona to face a Cardinals team that lost 17-27 to Minnesota in Week 6.
The Broncos have a terrible offense, though, one that only averages 20 points per game. Denver’s so bad that it often puts the defense in tough situations. Arizona’s played well against much higher scoring teams in the past couple of weeks.
Also, the betting line should go down to Broncos -3, meaning we’ll get decent moneyline odds on the Cardinals.
Moneyline Upset Pick: Cardinals
Dallas at Washington
When: Sunday, Oct. 21 at 4:25 pm ET
Where: FedEx Field, Landover, MD
Odds: Washington -2
Analysis: Washington’s a different team at home than they are on the road, but the Cowboys head to D.C. after pummeling the much-hyped Jacksonville Jaguars with 40 points. Dallas might have finally turned the corner.
The Cowboys pushed around a solid Jacksonville front seven. They could do the same to a solid Washington front seven on Oct. 21. Dallas versus Washington always seems to end up on the final drive or even final play of the game.
I like my chances on the moneyline dog, the Cowboys.
Moneyline Upset Pick: Cowboys
New York Giants at Atlanta Falcons
When: Monday, Oct. 22 at 8:15 pm ET
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, GA
Odds: Falcons -5.5
Analysis: Atlanta’s defense is horrendous. It’s impossible to describe how bad it is after watching the Falcons almost lose outright to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 6. Atlanta did pull it out, but not before the Bucs scored 29 points.
It means Atlanta’s allowed 43, 37, 41, and 29 points in their last 4. The New York Giants are a bad football team, but with so many skill players, NYG should score at least 30. That could be enough for the straight up win.
Moneyline Upset Pick: Giants
