Number of Daily Prayers

On weekdays there are three services a day. Two of these correspond to
offerings and the third is rabbinic.

Psalm 119:164 reads: "Seven times a day I have praised you for your righteous
ordnances."

Can anyone explain this number?

Muslims have five services daily. Does this have some basis in Judiasm, as
many other Muslim customs have?
