A few NFL teams that opened as heavy favorites in Week 7 are no longer laying nearly as many points with Sunday’s games just a few days away. Betting lines for games featuring the Green Bay Packers, Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints have gotten noticeably smaller.

Green Bay opened as a 10-point favorite at home against the Washington Football Team. The line is all the way down to 7.5 points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, as of early Thursday afternoon.

The Packers are on a five-game winning streak. Washington is 2-4, having yet to beat a team with a winning record.

The Kansas City Chiefs were 5.5-point road favorites against the Tennessee Titans. The Titans are now 4.5-point underdogs.

Tennessee upset the Buffalo Bills as home underdogs to conclude the Week 6 schedule. Kansas City has been favored by at least three points in every game this season.

The “Monday Night Football” point spread has seen the same movement. The New Orleans Saints are down to 4.5-point road favorites against the Seattle Seahawks.

New Orleans is coming off a bye. Seattle lost its first game without Russell Wilson.

The betting odds for all three primetime matchups have moved. The Cleveland Browns were once 5.5-point favorites over the Denver Broncos for Thursday night’s game. The line quickly fell to a field goal in light of Baker Mayfield’s injury. With Cleveland expected to miss other key players, the Browns are only favored by 1.5 points a few hours before kickoff.

For Sunday night’s game, the San Francisco 49ers have gone from 3.5-point favorites to 4.5-point favorites against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are all favored by more than 12 points in Week 7.
