Every NFL team's record vs. the spread and Week 7 early lines

At a glance, Week 7 appears to be one of mismatches,

as nine of the 14 games (64.3%) posted an opening line north of five points.

That's a big number, but with how bad the bottom rung of NFL teams is, your gut reaction may be to back the favorites.

Be careful. Very careful. It's been no secret that underdogs have been profitable on the whole this season, 

but with a week like the one we have coming, it's important to add context.

21, but once you cross that 5-point spread, the dogs are barkin'. This season, when that is the case,

underdogs are covering at a 63.2% clip, winning outright 35.5% of the time.

How does that stack up with the past? From 2016-21, underdogs covered 49.4% of the time and pulled

Sure, six weeks does not a season make, but what we've seen up to this point is overwhelming ...

do you think it continues? Let me know, and here are the league wide trends and a note to consider for every team as we head into Week 7:

Kansas City Chiefs (-3, 48.5) at San Francisco 49ers Chiefs ATS: 2-4 O/U: 3-3

What we know about the Chiefs: The Chiefs have covered seven of

 their past 10 regular season games when the over/under is less than 50 points.

49ers ATS: 3-3 O/U: 1-5

 their past 10 regular season games when the over/under is less than 50 points.
