NFL Week 6 picks

by Dan Bilicki In: Football, Picks

The lines are from Betway.com and the home teams are in CAPs.

NEW YORK GIANTS +3 over Philadelphia

It is becoming very apparent that even though they’re not as good as last season, the Eagles are going to win the NFC East going away.

Arizona +10.5 over MINNESOTA

The Cards have looked much better with Josh Rosen playing and, while the Vikings should take this one, we’re not sure if it’ll be a blowout.

Buffalo +8.5 over HOUSTON

Just because the Texans squeaked by the inept Cowboys in OT doesn’t mean they should be giving any more than a touchdown against anybody – even the lowly Bills.

ATLANTA -3.5 over Tampa Bay

Neither side can play defence, but Julio Jones has been especially known to torch the Bucs and will be the difference.

Carolina +1 over WASHINGTON

Washington’s top two RBs are ailing and they’re on a short week after getting blown out by the Saints. The Panthers should perform better after needing a miracle field goal last week.

NEW YORK JETS -2.5 over Indianapolis

The Colts may have a few extra days of rest, but this team is still banged up and you always have to worry a little about dome teams on the road.

CINCINNATI -2.5 over Pittsburgh

It’s too tough to go with Big Ben on the road and the Bengals have proven to be a contender to win this division.

L.A. Chargers -1 over CLEVELAND

The Chargers always tend to fall for these trap games, but you can’t forget that L.A.’s two losses have come against the league’s two best teams – the Rams and Chiefs – and there’s basically no line here.

Chicago -3 over MIAMI

The Dolphins have been exposed after their 3-0 start, getting blown out by the Pats and then blowing a huge lead last week. Our only worry is Mitchell Trubisky on the road.

Oakland +3 over Seattle in London

The Raiders are nothing to write home about, but we don’t like the way that Seattle has looked on the road – and England is about as far from home as it gets. Can’t discount a Marshawn Lynch revenge game, either.

L.A. Rams -7 over DENVER

The Broncos are a decent team at home, but things are falling apart and Case Keenum isn’t going to hold them together.

TENNESSEE +3 over Baltimore

The Titans seem to play to the level of their opponent, which should mean a close game. Both teams are coming off upset losses, so no advantage there.

Jacksonville -3 over DALLAS

The Cowboys offence is average at the best of times and could be legit lost against a unit as strong as the Jaguars.

Kansas City +3.5 over NEW ENGLAND

We know it can be dicey to bet against the Pats in prime time, but how can you not take the points with the high-powered Chiefs?

GREEN BAY -9.5 over San Francisco

The 49ers have all the looks of one of the three least-talented teams in the league. If Aaron Rodgers and Co. can’t torch this team in prime time, then it’s really time to worry for the Pack.

Last week: 8-6-1

This season: 38-34-4
