NFL capsules for Week 7

By William Hill  ( 


Denver Broncos at Cleveland Browns

Week 7 begins as the Denver Broncos (3-3 SU and ATS) visit the Cleveland Browns (3-3 SU and ATS) on “Thursday Night Football.” The teams have combined to lose five straight games after hot starts. The Browns are favored by 3.5 even as questions linger around the health of Baker Mayfield, who continues to play through a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. The Broncos’ 3-0 start seems like a distant memory as they have lost three in a row and were dominated by the Raiders last week, yielding over 8 yards per play. The Browns were buried by the Cardinals 37-14 and have lost two consecutive games. Injuries abound for both teams and will be something to monitor on a short week. The status of Browns running back Nick Chubb will be in question, while Kareem Hunt is out. The Broncos are dealing with injuries to a number of starters but hope to get receiver Jerry Jeudy back soon. The total is 44.5.

Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens

The Cincinnati Bengals (4-2 SU and ATS) have a chance to move into first place in the AFC North with a win as they visit the Baltimore Ravens (5-1 SU, 3-3 ATS). The Ravens had one of the season’s more impressive performances as they cooled off the Chargers, holding them to six points, 208 yards, 3.8 yards per play and just 25 percent on third down. The Bengals are also coming off a dominant performance, as the only touchdown they allowed was in the final minutes of a 34-3 rout of the Lions. They held Detroit to 228 yards of offense on 3.9 yards per play. The Bengals can tie the Ravens at 5-2 with a victory and would own the early tiebreaker. The upstart Bengals have shown a surprisingly stout defense, holding opponents to just over 5 yards per play, second best in the league behind the Bills. The Ravens are favored by 6.5, and the total is 47.
