NFL betting tips: Our 17/2 four-fold for Week 7
Jack Green's NFL tips and predictions for the seventh Sunday of the season feature four teams, two from each conference, in a 17/2 accumulator.
Here are Jack Green's NFL predictions for the seventh Sunday of the season, which make up an 17/2 four-fold.
Detroit Lions to beat Atlanta Falcons
Having fired their coach days before, the Falcons earned their first win of the season last Sunday by beating the Vikings 40-23, but the Lions should provide a much stiffer test.
Atlanta’s offense runs through its two star receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley, but they may struggle against a Detroit defence that has allowed the fourth-fewest passing yards in the NFL this season.
The Lions beat the Jaguars 34-16 last Sunday and have now won two of their three away games this season.
Cleveland Browns to beat Cincinnati Bengals
The Browns are coming off a humbling 38-7 defeat to the Steelers, but they remain playoff contenders in the AFC North thanks to their 4-2 record.
Cleveland had scored 32 points in four consecutive games before last week’s defeat and they now face a Cincinnati defence that conceded 31 in a defeat to the Colts last week.
The Browns have the best rushing attack in the NFL so they should dominate the Bengals, who have conceded the fifth-most rushing yards of any team.
Green Bay Packers to beat Houston Texans
The Packers lost for the first time this season to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but should bounce back against a Texans team that dropped to 1-5 on Sunday.
Houston were beaten 42-36 in overtime by the Titans last weekend and again struggled defensively. They rank inside the bottom 10 in the NFL against the pass and have the league’s worst rush defence.
That bodes poorly for their chances against the Packers, whose offense – led by all-time great quarterback Aaron Rodgers and star running back Aaron Jones – can do damage both through the air and on the ground.
Tennessee Titans to beat Pittsburgh Steelers
This should be the game of the week between two unbeaten teams.
Tennessee have been dominant offensively over the past four weeks. They’ve averaged 37 points per game, and scored 42 in each of their last two games.
Pittsburgh have almost been as good – averaging 31.2 per game this season – but they’ve played in four consecutive home games and have only faced the lowly New York Giants on the road.
In what should be a close game, home advantage should give Tennessee the edge they need to earn a statement victory.
