NFL Odds: Week 7 NFL Line Moves

After losing two key defensive players last week the Baltimore Ravens find themselves sinking on the NFL betting lines at the sportsbooks heading into their Sunday matchup on the road against the Houston Texans.

Ravens cornerback Lardarius Webb (knee) and linebacker Ray Lewis (triceps) were both placed on injured reserve this past week, dealing a blow to Baltimore's defensive unit. The Texans opened as 4.5-point favorites on the NFL lines at 5Dimes against the Ravens, but that spread is now up to 7.5 points.

Two other big line moves were seen in divisional matchups for this week, with the Giants falling from 7.5-point to 5.5-point favorites at home against the Redskins for Sunday, and the Bears increasing from 5-point to 7-point favorites at home against the Lions for Monday Night Football.

As well, the Vikings improved from 5.5-point to 7-point favorites at home against the Cardinals for their Sunday matchup, with Arizona starting quarterback Kevin Kolb now sidelined for at least a few weeks after suffering a rib injury in Week 6; John Skelton takes over his job this weekend.

And the biggest spread on the board for this week has remained unchanged since it opened - Tom Brady and the Patriots are still pegged as 11.5-point home favorites at 5Dimes against Mark Sanchez and the Jets for Sunday.
