2021 NFL Week 7 Lines and Movement

These boards of Tier One and Tier Two sportsbooks detail line movement for every NFL game from the opening to current numbers and where money influences point spreads as the week progresses.

These boards are updated daily, so check back throughout the week as we detail the point-spread movement, not just in the numbers but also in the game-by-game synopses. 

Here are the top two tiers of sportsbooks and where the numbers are moving or staying, as of early Sunday morning:

Broncos at Browns

  • SUNDAY – The Browns slid slightly from opening as a six-point favorite, with Broncos money ticking down the spread to 5.5 and five points.
  • MONDAY – Significant money hit the Broncos, moving the spread to key-number territory of 3.5 and three.
  • TUESDAY – The eight books were split at three and 3.5.
  • WEDNESDAY – News of Browns QB Baker Mayfield and RBs Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb being ruled out for Thursday night’s game sent this spread further in the Broncos’ direction, at Browns -2 and -1.5 points.
  • THURSDAY – This spread closed between one and 1.5 points. The Browns never trailed en route to a 17-14 victory over the Broncos.

Bengals at Ravens

  • SUNDAY – Books opened this spread just under a key number of seven points and no significant money either way moved it off the starting point.
  • MONDAY – The spread held at 6.5 points across the board.
  • TUESDAY – Ravens dropped to -6 at half the books with Bengals backers moving in.
  • WEDNESDAY – Ravens -6.5 returned as the consensus mark.
  • THURSDAY – The spread again dipped to six points at a few books and held at 6.5 at others, yet to hit a key number of seven.
  • FRIDAY – Just like Wednesday, this spread was a consensus 6.5 points.
  • SATURDAY – Ravens dipped to -6 at BetRivers and Betfred with Bengals backers lowering the spread. The remaining books held at 6.5 points.

Panthers at Giants

  • SUNDAY – The Panthers began as a three-point road favorite traveling to East Rutherford, N.J., and early action on them influenced most books to drop the spread under a key number to 2.5 points.
  • MONDAY – Panthers -3 held across Tier One sportsbooks with most Tier Two books at 2.5.
  • TUESDAY – No significant action across the market changed the numbers. FOX Bet and PointsBet were the only books under a field goal (2.5).
  • WEDNESDAY – Panthers -3 was the consensus across the board.
  • THURSDAY – Number held.
  • FRIDAY – DraftKings was the lone book to move off three points, dropping to 2.5.
  • SATURDAY – DraftKings moved back to three points as the rest of the market held at that number.

Football Team at Packers

  • SUNDAY – Packers backers weren’t deterred by Green Bay opening -7.5 and bet them up to a range of -9.5, -10 and -10.5 across the market.
  • MONDAY – The spread settled at Packers -9.5, with buyback on the Football Team anywhere above 10 points. DraftKings was down to nine points.
  • TUESDAY – DraftKings ticked up to Packers -9.5, in line with the rest of the market.
  • WEDNESDAY – Football Team money hit the spread across the market, moving the number down to a range of 7.5, eight and 8.5. BetMGM was the lone book that remained at the Tuesday market number of 9.5 points.
  • THURSDAY – The spread dipped to a 7.5 and eight points, erasing 9.5.
  • FRIDAY – Packers sat -8 at six books as the two others were -7.5.
  • SATURDAY – The lone book offering 7.5 points was BetMGM. All others were in a range of 8, 8.5 and 9, with most at 8.5 points.

Chiefs at Titans

  • SUNDAY – The Chiefs were favored by three points traveling to Tennessee ahead of the Titans’ Monday night tilt hosting the Bills. Early money hit the Chiefs enough to move the spread to four and 4.5. Other books kept this game off their boards.
  • MONDAY – Much the same as Sunday, even after the Titans’ 34-31 victory over the Bills.
  • TUESDAY – Chiefs money moved the market to a consensus -5.5.

  • FRIDAY – BetRivers was the only book listing this spread at five points as all others were at 4.5.
  • SATURDAY – Chiefs dropped to a low mark of -4 at a few books. Betfred went to five points and the rest were at 4.5.

Falcons at Dolphins

  • SUNDAY – Traveling back from London, which normally warrants a bye week, the Dolphins instead opened -3 for NFL Week 7. Early money hit the underdog Falcons, who are coming off their bye week after playing Week 5 in London. Falcons action either flipped them to a short favorite or pushed this spread to a range of Dolphins -1.5, -1 or a pick ’em.
  • MONDAY – More money on the Falcons moved them to a consensus -2.5.
  • TUESDAY – The spread didn’t hit three points, leaving Falcons meat on the bone under a field goal.

  • THURSDAY – Some Dolphins buyback, even at under a field goal, hit to bump the spread to two points, while most books stayed at 2.5.
  • FRIDAY – BetRivers and FOX Bet took enough Dolphins money to move to two points. The remaining books held their spreads at 2.5 points.
  • SATURDAY – Falcons fell to a low point of -1.5 points with Dolphins money hammering 2.5 and two. Other books held at two and 2.5 points.

  • MONDAY – Pats backers hit -6.5, erasing the number and moving Belichick’s Bunch to -7 across the eight books above.
  • TUESDAY – DraftKings took Jets money, dropping the spread to 6.5 points. BetRivers was the opposite, moving to 7.5 points. The remaining books held at seven.
  • WEDNESDAY – PointsBet ticked up to 7.5 points as other books offering 6.5 moved to seven points. BetRivers fell to that mark.
  • THURSDAY – Jets +7 again became enticing, moving down to 6.5 at a few books across the market. Others that were at seven points remained there.
  • FRIDAY – Seven points was the consensus spread across all eight books.
  • SATURDAY – Friday spreads of seven points held Saturday.

Lions at Rams

  • TUESDAY – The range from Monday stayed put except at FOX Bet, going down to a stagnant 14 points.

  • FRIDAY – More Rams backers flooded the market, moving the spread to a range of 15.5, 16 and 16.5.

  • FRIDAY – DraftKings, FanDuel and BetRivers received Eagles money, moving down to 2.5 points. All other books held at three points.
  • SATURDAY – BetMGM and Betfred were the only books offering this game at three points. All others held at or dropped to 2.5.

Bears at Buccaneers

  • SUNDAY – The Bucs entered NFL Week 7 off a “mini bye week,” having kicked off Week 6 last Thursday night. Brady’s Bunch was -10 hosting the Bears. Early money moved this double-digit opening number to Bucs -12, -12.5 and -13 across the market.
  • MONDAY – The Bucs didn’t hit a key number of 14 points but received money and -12 and -12.5 to bump them up to -13 and -13.5.

  • FRIDAY – Markets fluctuated to 11, 11.5, 12 and 13 points for this game. Most books were at 11.5 points.
  • SATURDAY – Copy and paste from Friday. The majority of books were 11.5 points, then ranging in both directions from that number.

Texans at Cardinals

  • SUNDAY – The undefeated Cardinals were the heaviest NFL Week 7 favorite, opening at -14.5. Too big a number? Nope. Early action on this game backed the Cards up to -16.5 and -17.
  • MONDAY – Numbers held.
  • TUESDAY – Cardinals money erased the 16.5-point number, making the spread 17 and 17.5 points.

  • SATURDAY – Sportsbooks were split with four offering 17.5 points and the other half at 18.

Colts at 49ers
