The NFL’s Week 7 slate is chock-full of some spicy matchups — Bengals and Ravens, Chiefs and Titans, Colts and 49ers among them.

“No, it’s not fun to bet on the New York Giants, but do you want to bet on the Panthers as road favorites? Carolina will be without Christian McCaffrey again this weekend, and it has lost three straight after starting 3-0. Sam Darnold was playing excellently to begin the season, but he’s thrown four touchdowns to go with six interceptions in his last three games. The Panthers’ offense ranks 23rd in the league in offensive success rate, and since losing McCaffrey, it ranks 28th. There’s not a lot about the Giants that I love, but defensively they’ve been good enough to believe they’ll be able to limit the Panthers on Sunday and help keep this game close. Yes, we must live in fear of Daniel Jones slipping on a banana peel and fumbling for the millionth time, but Carolina’s just as accident-prone.”

That’s Tom Fornelli, who knows how to make best bets. He’s up to a 12-6 record on the year forecasting games ATS. Check out his other favorite predictions for Week 7 right here.

SportsLine expert and CBS fantasy and gambling editor R.J. White knows his stuff when it comes to best bets. He’s been SportsLine’s No. 1 NFL expert over the last four years, delivering a 57.1% hit rate on SuperContest picks over the last six seasons. That run includes two finishes in the money, including finishing 18th out of 2,748 entries back in 2017.

We can tell you he likes the Patriots to rebound and take care of business against the rival Jets this week, but you’ll want to head to SportsLine for a full breakdown of his expert Week 7 projections.

Bengals at Ravens

Open: Ravens -6, O/U 48.5
Current: Ravens -6.5, O/U 46.5

“The Bengals are legit, I think. Their defense is good, particularly against the run. Joe Burrow is starting to really come out of the post-ACL injury thing. Jonah Williams isn’t getting enough credit for playing well at LT. And Ja’Marr Chase is an absolute monster out there. The Bengals played things right in terms of the draft and it’s paying dividends. I’m not sure if I’m 100 percent sold on Zac Taylor as ‘the guy’ yet but Bengals fans shouldn’t be either. John Harbaugh is the guy, though, and Baltimore is cooking. Lamar Jackson is running less than ever this year, Marquise Brown is having a third-year breakout, Rashod Bateman has returned from injury and Mark Andrews looks like a monster out there. I think the Ravens might be flexing on people over the next few weeks.”

That’s Will Brinson’s take on this AFC North showdown, which he thinks could actually get lopsided. Check out Brinson’s full rundown of Week 7 ATS picks and best bets right here.
