NFL week 6 is here. Picking NFL games straight up is hard enough, but picking against the spread is even tougher. Here are the NFL week 6 picks against the spread. (Spreads are from tallysight.com as of Wednesday morning)
Last week: 6-8, Overall: 45-32
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans
There is no line on this game yet, as the Titans are possibly going to have a very short week. The Titans flexed their muscles on Tuesday against the Bills and will be able to do the same against the one-win Texans.
Washington Football Team at New York Giants (-3)
Both teams have quarterback issues, but Washington’s situation is a little crazier right now. New York has played decently and even took the Cowboys to the wire. They will be able to win and cover.
Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts (-7.5)
The Bengals played a good team in the Ravens in week 5 and stood no chance. Indianapolis will be able to run the ball and play defense well enough to cover.
Atlanta Falcons at Minnesota Vikings (-3.5)
Atlanta fired Dan Quinn, but they have a lot of work to do still. Minnesota is slowly showing that they can play with the best teams in the league. After playing the Seahawks close, they should be able to win and cover at home.
Chicago Bears at Carolina Panthers (-2.5)
The Panthers have been playing good football this year, but it will be tough to move the ball on the Bears. Chicago could win the game and will keep it very close.
Detroit Lions (-3.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars
Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5)
The Browns are playing well this season, but still won’t be able to match the Steelers. Pittsburgh’s offense is rolling and they still have a great defense. The Steelers will win and cover.
Baltimore Ravens (-7.5) at Philadelphia Eagles
Baltimore still hasn’t produced on offense as much as they would’ve liked, but they are a much better team than the Eagles, especially with the injuries Philadelphia has had to endure.
Denver Broncos at New England Patriots
There is no line on this game, as it has been rescheduled too many times already. The Patriots will win the game because the Broncos will not be able to overcome their injuries.
New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (-8.5)
Miami played a great game against San Francisco, but they shouldn’t be favored by 8.5 over many teams. The Jets will keep it just close enough, even if the Dolphins do win.
Green Bay Packers (-1.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Aaron Rodgers is a man on a mission this season. The Packers are favored on the road over the Bucs and should be able to cover.
Los Angeles Rams (-3.5) at San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers got blown out by the Dolphins in week 5. They will struggle to keep up with the Rams this week.
Kansas City Chiefs (-3.5) at Buffalo Bills
If Buffalo was allowed to fill the stadium with fans, the Chiefs might have more trouble. The Bills couldn’t keep up with the Titans, so the Chiefs should be able to go on the road and cover.
Arizona Cardinals (-2.5) at Dallas Cowboys
With Dak Prescott getting injured and the Cowboys relying on him to carry the offense, the Cardinals have to be the pick. They should be able to win and cover on the road.
