NFL betting: Three cold teams statistically heading into Week 7

Whether it's a spate of injuries, a stretch of inconsistency or a little bit of both, several teams face daunting tasks in Week 7 of the NFL season. Bettors should be wary of putting their faith in these clubs, at least while they remain cold.

Here are three teams to avoid in Week 7:

Buffalo Bills (2-4, at Miami)

The Bills dropped a 27-24 overtime decision to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday despite erasing a 14-point fourth-quarter deficit. Buffalo could be 5-1 at this point - having lost three of four games by fewer than seven points - yet could just as easily be 0-6 following a one-point win over Carolina and a three-point triumph over Baltimore. Adding journeyman Matt Flynn to the quarterback mess isn't going to help a team that ranks 28th in average passing yards per game, squandering what has been a robust rush attack (148.8 ypg).

Houston Texans (2-4, at Kansas City)

Things have gone from very bad to much, much worse for the Texans, who were manhandled from start to finish in a one-sided loss to the St. Louis Rams. Despite strong showings from pre-injury Matt Schaub and a rejuvenated Arian Foster, Houston had all sorts of problems containing all facets of the St. Louis offense. The Texans also surrendered an interception-return touchdown for the fifth straight week, which certainly didn't help matters - nor will a Week 7 matchup with a Chiefs team that has yet to lose while boasting a plus-87 point differential.

New York Jets (3-3, vs. New England)

The Geno Smith honeymoon may be over after the rookie quarterback struggled throughout Sunday's 19-6 loss to the previously winless Pittsburgh Steelers. Smith finished with just 201 passing yards while throwing a pair of interceptions in the Jets' second terrible showing in a three-week span. The defense will keep this team in most games, but the Smith-led offense has managed just 29 points in its three losses - and will be in tough next Sunday against a Patriots team that has allowed just six passing touchdowns through six games.
