Report: Alvin Kamara, Saints close to finalizing contract extension

  Report: Alvin Kamara, Saints close to finalizing contract extension Kamara is currently set to make just $2.1 million in the final year of his rookie deal. He missed several days of training camp recently, and it was initially assumed that he was unhappy about his contract situation. However, Kamara said Monday that he has never held out.Despite playing through a significant injury for much of last season, Kamara still racked up more than 1,300 yards from scrimmage. He has also scored 37 touchdowns through his first three NFL seasons.

The Dallas Cowboys and New York Jets are the only teams that haven't covered any of their NFL spreads this season. Dallas struggled mightily in its first full game without quarterback Dak Prescott (ankle) in a 38-10 loss to the Cardinals on Monday. The Cowboys are listed as three-point road favorites against Washington in the latest Week 7 NFL odds from William Hill. The Jets are 13-point underdogs in the NFL Vegas odds as they host the Bills in Week 7, one of the largest NFL Vegas spreads we'll see all season.

Top NFL predictions for Week 7

One of the top Week 7 NFL predictions the model recommends: The Saints (-7.5) cover at home against the Panthers. Carolina had its three-game winning streak snapped in Week 6 as it lost 23-16 to the Bears. The Panthers (+1.5) failed to cover in that game for the first time since Week 2.

New Orleans has won two straight against Carolina, including a 42-10 victory last December in which the Saints (+18.5) covered a large spread with room to spare. SportsLine's model is calling for Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray to combine for almost 150 yards on the ground as the Saints cover in well over 50 percent of simulations. The over (51) also clears almost 70 percent of the time.

Another one of the top Week 7 NFL predictions from the model: The Chargers (-8) cover against the Jaguars at SoFi Stadium. With rookie Justin Herbert settling into the starting quarterback role, the Chargers have been a strong team for bettors to back this season. In fact, they're 3-1 against the spread with one push. Jacksonville, meanwhile, is just 2-4 against the number.

  NFL odds, lines, picks, predictions for Week 6, 2020: Proven model backing Ravens, Colts SportsLine's computer model simulated every Week 6 NFL game 10,000 times with surprising results.Sep 29, 2019; Orchard Park, NY, USA; Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen (17) is sacked by New England Patriots middle linebacker Kyle Van Noy (53) during the second quarter at New Era Field.

Herbert is well-positioned to put up sky-high numbers against a struggling Jacksonville secondary. In fact, the Jags rank 26th in the NFL in pass defense, giving up 270.7 yards per game.

SportsLine's model projects that Herbert will easily clear 300 yards through the air as Mike Williams, Hunter Henry and Keenan Allen all record at least 70 receiving yards. The model says Los Angeles covers well over 50 percent of the time, while the offensive explosion also helps the over (49) clear in well over 50 percent of simulations.
