It’s been a wacky 2019 NFL season so far with injuries, officiating snafus, upsets and trades hogging the headlines. If you threw down on the Santa Clara 49ers to be the last unbeaten team in the league you’re looking good for a nice payout. You will have to sweat it out against Tom Brady and the Patriots, though. Both unbeatens are big favorites on the road to stay that way in Week 7. The Niners are laying 9.5-points to the winless Skins and the Pats are the same for their Monday night matchup with the Jets. And who would’ve guessed Marcus Mariota would be first of the top two 2015 draft picks to get benched? Such is life in the NFL.

Betting on the games is also a part of the NFL, and if you’ve been tracking the wise guy plays you’d be sitting pretty right now. After a down Week 5, the wise guys were back in the saddle last week hitting on two of the three matchups we were monitoring. The Jets exited the group of winless and the AFC East basement with an outright win over the Cowboys. Yes, Sam Darnold means that much to Gang Green. It’s hard to get shutout in the NFL and that’s why Mariota is now a backup. Sharps backed the Broncos and they came through with a 16-0 victory. The Steelers ruined the perfect week with an upset of the Bolts behind former Walter Payton Award winner Devlin Hodges. Could there be a quarterback controversy in Pittsburgh?

Now let’s go win some money by following the wise guy leads on the Week 7 schedule. And remember, BookMaker will have spreads and totals for every NFL matchup during the 2019 season. Visit BookMaker.eu when you’re ready to wager on your favorite NFL team.

NFL Week 7 Wise Guy Picks

Kansas City Chiefs ( -3, 48.5 ) at Denver Broncos

The AFC West is now a race and things can tighten up considerably if the Broncos can win again. The Chiefs are still the front runners, but they look vulnerable after losing two straight to Indianapolis and Houston, at home nonetheless. KC surfaced as a 5.5-point favorite for Thursday night’s matchup and got over 60 percent of the public play. This looks like a shrewd wise guy move, though, with the line falling to -3.

The Chiefs will likely win the division but it isn’t going to be easy. If anyone can shutdown Patrick Mahomes and the offense it’s Vic Fangio, who spent years figuring those things out as one of the top defensive coordinators in the league. Things haven’t changed now that he’s running the show. The Broncos were twice beaten by a game-ending field goal making them the closest thing to a 4-2 team that there is. They made sure the last two games didn’t come down to a deciding kick by playing gnarly defense, covering the spread and cashing the under in both.

Arizona Cardinals at New York Giants ( -3, 48.5 )

The surprising Cardinals take to the road for a tilt with the Giants in a game that will feature the top two quarterbacks taken in the 2019 draft. Kyler Murray was hailed as the savior when selected, and after a slow start he’s flashing the skills that earned him the Heisman Trophy last year. Still, the Cards opened as 1-point road dog with solid public support against a ravaged Giants team. So, the line promptly rose to AZ -3. Go figure.

Now is not the time to overreact to the Giants’ loss in New England. Sure the 35-14 final looks bad, but the G-Men were without a number of offensive starters and the Pats benefitted from two defensive scores. And the Cards aren’t the Pats. Hoping to have some reinforcements back in the huddle, I can see why wise guys are backing New York.

Jacksonville Jaguars ( -3.5, 44 ) at Cincinnati Bengals

Even Minshew Mania isn’t enough to keep the total from dropping in this game. Wise guys can toy with the over/under just as easily as the spread and this game has some sharp edges to it. The Saints may have written the manual on how to stop Minshew with their schemes last week that had the rookie befuddled. He was just 14 of 29 for 163 yards and a pick.

The Bengals haven’t been lighting up the scoreboard this season so it’s easy to see why the public and wise guys are backing the under. The unusual part is that both sides have chipped in with their support, dropping the total to 44. What we need to consider is that both defenses haven’t been brilliant. The Bengals are 31st and the Jags 23rd in yards allowed, so there’s a good chance the playmakers make plays.
