NFL betting Week 7 is right around the corner and like always, there are a bunch of terrific games to watch this upcoming weekend.

Pittsburgh Steelers (4-1) at Miami Dolphins (3-2)

Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers pounded the Cleveland Browns last week by 18 points. Big Ben completed 16 of his 27 passes for 257 yards, including three touchdowns and one interception in his return to the field.

The Miami Dolphins snuck out a victory against the Green Bay Packers last week and will have their hands full against the Steelers, especially with Roethlisberger back in the line-up.

Pittsburgh started the season with a 3-1 record without Big Ben, coming up with W's against Atlanta, Tennessee, and Tampa Bay (all three teams above a .500 record).

This weeks spread gives the Dolphins +3 points, but they will definitely need more than that to beat the Steelers this week.

Pittsburgh wins this week by more than 3 points.

Philadelphia Eagles (4-2) at Tennessee Titans (4-2)

Sportsbook clients saw Philadelphia's Kevin Kolb produced a very efficient game last week against the Falcons, throwing for 326 yards on 23-for-29 passing, including three TD's and one pick.

The Eagles hold a 2-1 record with Kevin Kolb as their QB and are currently undefeated on the road (3-0) as they match up against the Titans this week.

Philadelphia will play without WR DeSean Jackson in the lineup this week.

Tennessee is coming off of a huge win against the Jacksonville Jaguars (30-3), in which RB Chris Johnson rushed for 111 yards and one touchdown.

The Titans are one of the deadliest offensive teams in the NFL right now and are giving the Eagles just three points this week.

Tennessee pulls out a victory, beating the Eagles by more than 3 points. 

Minnesota Vikings (2-3) at Green Bay Packers (3-3)

This Sunday Night NFL odds match-up will definitely be an entertaining one. QB Brett Favre returns to his old stomping grounds to face off against his former prodigy Aaron Rodgers.

The Vikings are coming off of a much needed win against the Dallas Cowboys, while the Packers are looking to capture their first win in two weeks. 

Green Bay has now lost by three points for two consecutive weeks. With the ball in their court, they should be able to turn things around with the help of Rodgers, who has a career passer rating of 103.9 against the Minnesota Vikings.

The spread at the sportsbook gives the Vikings +2.5 points this week. This game is really a toss up and could go either way.
