NFL Week 7 Odds: Buffalo Bills Favored Over Jacksonville Jaguars In London

by

The NFL returns to London this weekend where the Jacksonville Jaguars will try to halt a four-game straight up (SU) losing streak when they host the Buffalo Bills as 4 1/2-point betting underdogs at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

The Jaguars fell to 1-5 SU last weekend with a 31-20 loss to the Houston Texans, a game in which they were pegged as betting chalk for just the second time since Week 4 in 2012.

The loss to the Texans also dropped them to 2-4 against the spread (ATS) ahead of Sunday morning’s Bills vs. Jaguars betting matchup at Wembley Stadium, where they are winless, SU and ATS, in their two previous appearances.

Buffalo makes its Wembley debut following a disappointing 34-21 loss at home to the Cincinnati Bengals, while getting tagged with the ATS loss as slim 3-point underdogs.

The 3-3 Bills have alternated between wins and losses, but are undefeated, SU and ATS, in their last three road contests. The team has been a disappointment as betting favorites, however, losing outright in their last three, but are a solid 4-2 SU and 5-1 ATS in their past six road dates with the Jaguars.

While the Bills struggle to keep pace in the AFC East standings, the New England Patriots look to extend their division lead when they host the rival New York Jets as 9-point betting favorites.

The Patriots extended their SU unbeaten streak to eight games with a 34-27 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, but were tagged with their first ATS loss as 8 1/2-point favorites.

The Jets have jumped out to a 4-1 SU start powered by the NFL’s top-ranked defense, which so far has surrendered just 15 points per game, and have rewarded bettors who have benefited from the team’s 10-5 ATS record in their past 15 games.

The Jets are also undefeated ATS in their last four games against New England according to the OddsShark NFL Database but are 1-7 SU in their last eight meetings.

The Miami Dolphins will be gunning for back-to-back SU wins for the first time in their last 14 games when they host the Texans as 4 1/2-point chalk. The 2-3 Dolphins ended a three-game SU and ATS skid with a decisive 38-10 win over the Tennessee Titans last weekend, but remain winless ATS in their last five at home, 1-4 SU.

In other NFL Week 7 betting action, the Colts are pegged as 5-point home favorites in their matchup with the New Orleans Saints, while the Minnesota Vikings visit the Detroit Lions as 3-point favorites, and the Titans battle the Atlanta Falcons as 3-point home underdogs.
