- The Texans were driving down the field at the end of the Raiders game down by 11 and Davis Mills threw a 73-yard pick-six that locked in the Raiders covering the 6.5-point spread.
- The Baltimore Ravens blocked a late fourth-quarter 60-yard field goal by the Cleveland Browns that would have tied the game and hit the 45-point over that was set for the game.
- The Tampa Bay Bucs were the largest favorite of the week with a 13.5 spread to cover against the Panthers but lost by 18 points in North Carolina.
LAS VEGAS – The Raiders got their second win of the season on Sunday afternoon, after handling the Houston Texans as 6.5-point home favorites. While the Raiders ended up winning by 18, the Texans were close to getting within four points late in the fourth and avoided being one of the biggest bad beats of week seven.
Week Seven Odds
|Texans +255/Raiders -320||Texans +6.5/Raiders -6.5||Over 46.5 (-105)/Under 46.5 (-115)|
With seven minutes remaining, the Texans were down by 11 points and were successfully driving down the field. The drive started on the Texan’s 25-yard line and Super Bowl sportsbooks had favorable odds for the Texans covering the spread, having a 2022 record of 3-2-1.
After taking it to the Las Vegas 40, Davis Mills threw an interception that was returned for a 73-yard touchdown by Duron Harmon with 3:26 remaining.
This turnaround saved all Bovada sports bettors that had wagered on the spread, ensuring that the Raiders would cover. The over was already hit for the game before the interception occurred.
Ravens and Browns Bad Beat
The Browns and Ravens had a chaotic finish that ended with the over not being hit at the end that was set at 45.5 for the game. 43 points were scored with over nine minutes left in regulation, and the Browns were trailing by three.
With nine minutes left, there was hope for bettors that wagered on the over, only needing a field goal by either team. The Ravens ended up fumbling after a 55-yard drive and the Browns followed it up with a 60-yard FGA that was blocked with two minutes remaining.
Before this game, Cleveland had git the over in five of their six games but ultimately failed to both hit the over in week seven and put the game in overtime with the missed FG.
Bucs Fail to Cover as Largest Favorite
The Tampa Bay Bucs and the Green Bay Packers were both heavy favorites to get a week seven win but both came up short. After the Christian McCaffrey trade, the Bucs game line moved to make them 13.5 favorites but they ended losing by 18 to the Panthers.
The Bucs were the biggest favorite of the week and their loss hurt anyone that used them to attempt to boost any parlay wagers on Sunday.
