NFL Week 6 Picks Against the Spread

NFL Week 6 Picks

THE BEAST!

Yesterday I booked a win with Michigan State as the top game on my list.  I apologize for the late picks, but I’ve been away for the past week. I’m just going to throw out some quick picks. Like I mentioned before, this is based off a quick scan and not much homework going into the picks so do your own due dilligence before taking any games.

I also wanted to mention Hank Goldberg’s picks. You probably know him as the horse bettor you see on ESPN.  He likes MIA (+3) over GB, BAL (+2.5) over NE, and CHI (-6) over SEA.

NFL Week 6 Picks Against the Spread:

  • CHICAGO (-5.5) over Seattle — I agree with Hank here. The Bears have rebounded after their Giants debacle. I’m confident taking them here at home against a team that is notably horrific on the road. Cutler will also be back for the Bears. Seattle is coming off a bye week, which is to their advantage though.  However, Seattle has averaged just 8.5 points on their two road games and as Hank mentioned, they don’t typically play well against the spread after a bye week. I see this one ending 24-10 Bears.
  • New Orleans (-4) over TAMPA BAY — Those who took New Orleans last week over Arizona got burned. I’ll scratch that one up as a fluke as Arizona scored 17 points in the 4th quarter and 14 points came via a fumble recovery return and an interception return. Don’t look for lightning to strike twice. Coach will have the Saints prepared for this road test against an easy division opponent. Last year the Saints topped the Bucs on the road 38-7. There are some injury concerns that you will want to look into, notably Pierre Thomas is still out and the Saints secondary is pretty banged up. The Saints offense needs to wake up, they’re averaging just 19.8 PPG.  I see this one ending 24-17 Saints.
  • Oakland (+7) over SAN FRANSISCO — San Fransisco is 0-5 and definitely aren’t as bad as their record. No doubt they win, but I think Oakland manages to keep it close. Oakland was able to pull off the upset against the Chargers last week. Not a high confidence play, but I wanted to throw in a game with some points. San Fran wins this one 24-20.

This is a tough week, I wanted to throw out some more picks, but all other games  are literally 50/50. Good luck!

    peyton missed passes and was not in synch with receivers and yet still made line agst. chiefs, houston should play well at home and add to loss column of chiefs, and lets hope by 5 plus.

    never knew why pats got rid of branch and he should do well again with brady and a 3 pt. win likely. pats have special teams clicking and maybe the edge.
