Rams to keep up the charge

Just one team are left unbeaten in the NFL after six weeks of gruelling football and things will not get any easier as we look at the action in Week 7.

Broncos to win @ 20/23

It has been a hard road for the Denver Broncos over recent weeks and Friday will see the Colorado outfit make the trip to the University of Phoenix Stadium to face the Arizona Cardinals.

Four defeats on the bounce have not made pretty reading for Broncos supporters but they have not been too far away from getting a couple of major scalps in that winless streak.

Denver were beaten by four points by the Kansas City Chiefs, who were unbeaten at the time, while they almost overcame the still-undefeated Los Angeles Rams last time out before losing 23-20.

It will be key for the Broncos to take the positives from those near-misses when they take on a Cardinals side with the least offensive yards so far in the NFL this season.

This could well be Denver’s week and the Broncos can win on the road and end that miserable run.

Patriots to win -3 handicap @ 10/11

Kansas City Chiefs saw their perfect start to the season brought to an end in Week 6 and now the New England Patriots will be determined to build on that win when they travel to the Windy City to face the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

The Pats have started seasons off slowly in the past and inevitably they are there of thereabouts come the business end – it’s just what they do.

Last season’s Super Bowl runners-up might have taken a bit more time than they would have liked to get up to speed but quarterback Tom Brady looks like he is ready to go on a winning run.

The Bears have been going well in the NFC North, with a 3-2 record, but they might have caught New England at a bad time and the Pats are 10/11 to win with a -3 handicap.

Chargers to win by 1-6 @ 14/5

The Los Angeles Chargers take the on the points-shy Tennessee Titans at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

The Chargers have a 4-2 record ahead of the long trip from sunny California to north London but still find themselves in second spot in the AFC West, having seen the Chiefs make an electric start to their campaign.

With only defeats to Kansas City and the Rams this season, the Chargers find themselves in a good place in their development towards a team that can challenge for Divisional, Conference and Super Bowl honours.

A win over the Titans would be a fourth-straight success after securing wins against the San Francisco 49ers, Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns.

Those three are hardly world-beaters but winning momentum can count for a lot in the NFL so quarterback Philip Rivers and company will be brimming with confidence ahead of the trip to England.

Melvin Gordon continues to cause defences problems on the ground, with 466 yards rushing at an average of 5.1 yards per carry.

A 26-23 overtime victory over Philadelphia Eagles has been the biggest highlight of the season so far for the Titans but they don’t seem to have enough on offence to cause teams problems.

Tennessee have a 3-3 record going into the trip to Wembley and the Chargers might just have too much for them.

Eagles to win @ 4/9

Reigning Super Bowl champions Philadelphia Eagles have had their doubters this season although they gave critics a glimpse of their true selves by thrashing the New York Giants.

Head coach Doug Pederson and his side head to the Carolina Panthers on Sunday on the back of a 34-13 victory over their NFC East rivals at the Metlife Stadium.

After missing the start of the season through injury, QB Carson Wentz is starting to find the form that had him competing to be MVP last season before suffering a cruel knee injury just before the play-offs.

Nick Foles stepped in and the rest is just history although Wentz being back and starting to find his groove had a big impact on the Eagles in New York.

Much has been made about the loss of running-back Jay Ajayi to a season-ending injury but Philly showed their aerial game can cause plenty of problems.

The Panthers have their own threat in QB Cam Newton and the Eagles’ defence have got to try and knock the big man off his stride or the game could get away from Philly.

This head-to-head between Wentz and Newton is a fascinating one but with that win last time out against the Giants, Philadelphia might have turned a corner and could make it back-to-back wins this weekend.

Rams to win -9 handicap @ 10/11

Monday night throws up an all-California contest as the unbeaten LA Rams travel to Levi’s Stadium to face the San Francisco 49ers.

It has been a tough start to the season for the 49ers after losing starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo to a season-ending injury.

C J Beathard has been thrust into centre stage and almost got San Francisco a major scalp last time out against the Green Bay Packers.

Aaron Rodgers broke 49ers’ hearts with a fine comeback and it will be tough for San Francisco to recover this week against the best offense in the NFL this season for yards.

QB Jared Goff has really found his rhythm through the air, while on the ground they have running-back Todd Gurley II who has already run for 623 yards this season.

It’s hard to see the 49ers stopping the Rams’ charge and LA are 10/11 to come out on top – even with a -9.5 handicap in San Francisco.
