The Los Angeles Rams have continued their undefeated start to the NFL season with a commanding 39-10 win against NFC West rivals the San Francisco 49ers.
The Rams are $4 to win the Super Bowl and dominated in both sides of the ball against the 49ers. Jared Goff had two touchdowns, while Todd Gurley rushed for two scores as part of a 63-yard performance.
San Francisco ($501) had four turnovers in a sloppy home performance, as they dropped to 1-6 on the season.
New England won its fourth game in a row in a pulsating 38-31 win at Chicago ($34). The Patriots are $6.50 to win the Super Bowl and survived a late scare against the Bears.
Chicago led 10-7 at the end of the first quarter and led 17-7 early in the second quarter before being pegged back by the Patriots.
Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky threw a 54-yard Hail Mary that landed just one yard short of the goal line in the dying moments that would have potentially sent the game into overtime.
Kansas City ($7) remains New England’s nearest rival in the AFC after a 45-10 win against Cincinnati on Sunday Night Football.
The Chiefs led 24-7 at half time in a game they controlled from the outset. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes had four touchdowns and 358 yards.
The Chiefs’ rushing attack tore apart the Bengals defence with 198 total rushing yards, led by Kareem Hunt who had 86 yards.
The Bengals drop to 4-3 on the season and are $46 to win the Super Bowl.
Their AFC North rivals the Baltimore Ravens ($26) did them a favour in week seven after kicker Justin Tucker failed to kick a late point after costing Baltimore a chance of victory against New Orleans.
Tucker had made 222 out of 222 PAT’s in his NFL career prior to Sunday as the Ravens lost 24-23 at home.
New Orleans moves to 5-1 on the season and 3-0 on the road. Drew Brees had 212 yards and two touchdowns, while his opposite Joe Flacco put up 279 yards and two scores.
It was a winning week all round for teams in the NFC South with Carolina ($29), Tampa Bay ($126) and Atlanta ($41) all registering wins.
The Panthers’ 21-17 win against Super Bowl 52 winners Philadelphia ($26) in Philadelphia was one of the most impressive performances of week seven.
Carolina was kept scoreless after three quarters and trailed 17-0. They ignited in the fourth quarter, scoring three touchdowns to shock the Eagles.
A Cam Newton one-yard pass to Greg Olsen with just over a minute remaining proved to be the game-winning score.
Tampa Bay overcame a fourth quarter comeback by the Cleveland Browns ($151) to register a 26-23 win and move to 3-3 on the season.
Chandler Catanzaro slotted a 59-yard field goal with less than two minutes remaining in overtime for the Bucs. Cleveland moves to 2-4-1 on the season and 0-3 on the road, with two of those losses coming in overtime.
Atlanta grabbed a narrow three-point win on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants ($251), with the 23-20 scoreline flattering a Giants team that trailed by 14 points late in the game.
Matt Ryan had 379 yards and one touchdown for the Falcons, while Eli Manning threw for 399 yards and one score for the Giants.
The Los Angeles Chargers ($17) continue to go from strength to strength this season after a narrow 20-19 win against Tennessee ($81) in London.
The Titans went for a two-point conversion after they scored late in the game and had the attempt been successful, they would have won the game.
Marcus Mariota’s one-yard pass was incomplete and the Chargers escaped with the win.
The Titans drop to 3-4 on the season, with the Chargers moving to 5-2.
Dallas ($46) had a chance to tie their game with Washington ($34) in a crucial NFC East match up at Washington.
The Cowboys were penalised for moving the football prior to the snap and changing the snap position. That five-yard penalty proved costly, as kicker Brett Maher’s 52-yard attempt hit the upright and bounced away.
The Skins had a one game lead on the Cowboys in the NFC East standings.
There were also big wins in week seven for Denver ($101), Indianapolis ($151) and Detroit ($51) who defeated Arizona ($501), Buffalo ($401) and Miami ($101) by double digits respectively.
