Four of the five teams favored by seven or more points covered in Week 7 as sportsbooks took another beating. The Packers and Cardinals keep rewarding bettors, sporting a combined record of 12-2 against the spread this season. They'll meet Thursday night in Arizona, where the Cardinals are 6.5-point favorites.

Here's an ATS rankings breakdown for all 32 teams heading into Week 8:

1. Dallas Cowboys 6-0 against the spread (have covered by +52.5 points)

Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard will face a Vikings defense giving up the fourth-most yards per carry. Get ready to see a lot of "hungry Zeke" gifs on your timeline.

Week 8: (-2.5) at Minnesota Vikings

2. Arizona Cardinals 6-1 (+84)

Offenses are scoring just 12 points per game against Arizona over the last five weeks.

Week 8: (-6.5) vs. Green Bay Packers

3. Green Bay Packers 6-1 (-11)

The Packers could be without their top two receivers on Thursday night after Davante Adams and Allen Lazard were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Week 8: (+6.5) at Arizona Cardinals

4. Indianapolis Colts 5-2 (+34.5)

Jonathan Taylor has 551 total yards over his last four games. Michael Pittman Jr. is starting to break out.

Buffalo's next three games are against the Dolphins, Jags and Jets. If you want a Josh Allen MVP ticket, you should grab it now.

Week 8: (-13.5) vs. Miami Dolphins

7. Los Angeles Chargers 4-2 (+1)

The Chargers are the odds-on favorites to win the AFC West. Can new head coach Brandon Staley fade the bad luck that's plagued this franchise for years?

Week 8: (-5.5) vs. New England Patriots

8. Cincinnati Bengals 4-3 (+67)

The Bengals are legit. All five of their touchdowns against the Ravens originated from outside of the red zone.

Week 8: (-10) at New York Jets

9. Las Vegas Raiders 4-3 (+19.5)

We're nearly halfway through the season with the Raiders holding a two-game lead over the Chiefs. They've won and covered both of their games under interim head coach Rich Bisaccia.

Week 8: BYE

10. Los Angeles Rams 4-3 (+18.5)

Matthew Stafford is exactly what this offense needed. Cooper Kupp leads the league in receptions, yards and touchdowns.

Geno Smith has covered the spread in seven straight games. 

Week 8: (-3.5) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

D'Ernest Johnson picked up where Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt left off and became the poster boy for "Running backs don't matter."

New Orleans wide receivers accounted for just 19% of the Saints' receiving yards in Monday night's game.

Week 8: (+5) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Vikings' three games before their bye: scored seven points at home against the Browns, needed a last-second field goal to beat the Lions in Minnesota, beat the Panthers in overtime.

Week 8: (+2.5) vs. Dallas Cowboys

15. Atlanta Falcons 3-3 (-32)

Kyle Pitts is going to look good in a gold jacket.

With their bye, the Ravens will get to take an additional week off.

Another contestant in the extremely complicated Deshaun Watson sweepstakes.

Week 8: (+3) at Atlanta Falcons

They haven't won or covered since Week 3. Jerry Jeudy may be back this week.

Week 8: (-3) vs. Washington Football Team

22. Detroit Lions 3-4 (-12.5)

I'd love to see what Dan Campbell could do with a good roster.

Week 8: (+3) vs. Philadelphia Eagles

23. New York Giants 3-4 (-13.5)

If they can go into Arrowhead and pull off an upset, they'll have the same record as the Chiefs.

Week 8: (+10) at Kansas City Chiefs

24. Houston Texans 3-4 (-24)

Tyrod Taylor owned the highest QBR and his 1-0 Texans were leading the Browns when he strained his hamstring in Week 2. He may be back under center this week.

Week 8: (+14.5) vs. Los Angeles Rams

25. Chicago Bears 3-4 (-27)

Rookie Justin Fields is averaging 149.2 passing yards in his five starts.

29. Kansas City Chiefs 2-5 (-50.5)

That dynasty was shorter than Danny DeVito.

Week 8: (-10) vs. New York Giants

30. Miami Dolphins 2-5 (-62)

If the Dolphins are so smart, why did they use a top-five draft pick on a quarterback just to throw 20 screens per game?

Week 8: (+13.5) at Buffalo Bills

31. New York Jets 1-5 (-59.5)

Don't worry, Jets fans — help is on the way and his name is Joe Flacco.

Week 8: (+10) vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Washington made four trips to the red zone against Green Bay and got three points out of it.
