We had a clean sweep last Sunday, and I’m looking to keep that streak going with another three plays for the Sunday slate of games. We are going to do a player prop, a side, and a total for NFL week 7.

Chiefs vs. Titans

We know Patrick Mahomes does some magical stuff on the football field. We also know that he has not looked like Patrick Mahomes this year. He’s already had eight interceptions, which is more than he had all of last year. The Titans have allowed twelve touchdowns to opposing quarterbacks this season. That averages to two passing touchdowns per game. Not too bad. But, they are one of the worst secondaries in football and the Chiefs don’t have their normal starting running back. In a game where points should be scored, I’ll play Mahomes to get over 2.5 touchdowns at -120 . He hasn’t done it in his last two games, both against good secondaries. But in his first four games, he had 3+ each game.

Eagles vs. Raiders

I know that there was turmoil and drama around Jon Gruden. He’s gone, the players want to get back to playing football. The Raiders are 4-2 and their two losses came against teams that have strong defenses. The Philadelphia Eagles do not. The Eagles haven’t had much to be excited about this season despite high hopes for quarterback Jalen Hurts. The best weapon that Hurts has is his legs, and the Raiders are only allowing 23 yards per game to quarterbacks. I think they should be able to contain Hurts enough and Derek Carr should be able to take advantage of an Eagles team that has allowed 12 passing touchdowns on the season. Play the Raiders -3 at -104 .

Colts vs. 49ers

Jimmy Garoppolo is coming back from injury and a bye week. Carson Wentz and the Colts are facing a competent defense again in the 49ers. Nothing about this game makes me think that the game will be a high-scoring game. The only way I see it happening is turnovers. Wentz has been good about limiting them this season, only throwing one interception. Garoppolo was okay as the starter and now that Trey Lance is injured, he won’t be looking over his shoulder. The problem really is they don’t have much of a run game right now, and George Kittle is out. Ideally, you attack the Colts through the air but if they can contain Deebo Samuel, this game may be a lot of field goals. I’ll take the under 43.5 at -110.
