Week 6 BETTING
OAK @ KC (-3) – KC
Even if the Raiders have a good gameplan and they feel confident with QB Terrelle Pryor, the Chiefs are just better on both sides of the ball.
(-1.5) PHI @ TB – PHI
The Eagles will be able to move the chains resulting on some points, however not to worry against Tampa Bay’s rookie quarterback.
(-3) GB @ BAL – BAL
The ground game is making the Packers offense look more dangerous with the balance, but the D is banged up and the Ravens D hasn’t fallen off the radar yet.
(-2) DET @ CLE – CLE
Even with Calvin Johnson, he would be playing hurt against cornerback Joe Haden, the Browns can load the box while throwing downfield on Detroit’s secondary.
CAR @ MIN (-2.5) – MIN
Carolina could improve into a pretty good team, they’re just not there yet and will face an emotional MVP Adrian Peterson with Matt Cassel that spread the ball last week.
STL @ HOU (-7.5) – STL
The Rams could pull off the upset and I would not be surprised, but the unfortunate series of events should loosen the reigns on Matt Schaub and company because they’re still a good team.
PIT @ NYJ (-2.5) – PIT
The Jets have won low and high-scoring games, the thing is that Pittsburgh is full of pride coming off a bye week, focusing on their first W.
(-7) CIN @ BUF – CIN
Buffalo is bruised offensively and the boost by Jairus Byrd at safety will help, except the Bengals are too much too handle and are legitimate contenders.
TEN @ SEA (-13.5) – SEA
Seattle will get back in the win column after taking care of business, Tennessee will put up a fight until they realize Ryan Fitzpatrick gets flustered.
JAX @ DEN (-27) – JAX
The Broncos will win this game, I just wouldn’t bet on the margin of victory since Jacksonville has been able to get into Peyton Manning’s head before. At least enough to lose by less than 27 points, that’s where I’m getting at.
ARI @ SF (-10.5) – ARI
I love the Cardinals defense, I think they’re healthier right now and will have more talent on the field than the 49ers can overcome.
NO @ NE (-2.5) – NE
Both defenses look improved but the edge goes to New England’s, definitely roll with the Saints if tight end Rob Gronkowski doesn’t return though.
WAS @ DAL (-5.5) – WAS
The Redskins are coming off a bye week looking to play better defense, the Cowboys are looking to do the same, and this game will be close so I wouldn’t feel comfortable betting on Dallas winning by 6 after such a moral victory. It looks like a shootout on paper, I think Washington beats a deflated Cowboys team.
(-1.5) IND @ SD – IND
Kansas City is a tough place to play, let alone the fact that they are undefeated. The Raiders will rely on quarterback Terrelle Pryor to anchor the offense. He is developing quite a rapport with receiver Danarius Moore. You can usually count on kicker Sebastian Janikowski to come through. The Chiefs have an elite defense with a young signal caller at the helm, and without running back Darren McFadden. Speaking of backs, Jamaal Charles does it all as an Offensive Player of the Year candidate. Receiver Dwayne Bowe should finally get some opportunities and at the very least, set up kicker Ryan Succop like they did last week to finish drives.
