Some of the most important bets of a NFL Week are placed on Mondays. Here are the Week 7 NFL games I have already bet on. Odds via PointsBet

Carolina Panthers vs. New York Giants (+2.5) Total: 44

Both the Panthers and the Giants come into this Week 7 matchup struggling. The Panthers are on a three-game losing streak while the Giants only have a single victory on the season. This is actually a good spot to bet the Panthers at -2.5. The Panthers are 8-2 ATS on the road under Matt Rhule. The Giants are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games. Edge: Panthers -2.5

Washington Football Team vs. Green Bay Packers (-9.5) Total: 46.5 

The look ahead on this game from back in the spring had the Packers as a four-point favorite. The Football Team catching more than a touchdown is a great value bet. When I guessed the line on this game, my number was Green Bay -7. Edge: Football Team +9.5 

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens (-6.5) Total: 47 

The red hot Baltimore Ravens put their five-game winning streak on the line vs. the 4-2 Cincinnati Bengals. Back in the spring, the look ahead line on this game was Ravens -10. Getting the Ravens at less than a touchdown is a huge value. Baltimore is 3-0 ATS vs. the Bengals in their last three meetings, all spreads of 11 points or more. Edge: Ravens -6.5
