Week six in the NFL is full with a tough docket of games. Expect to see low scores in confidence pools and teams struggling to find production with big name players on the injury report. When looking over the betting lines there is not much that I like this week, so I will be sitting this week out. If I were to pick some games to wager on this weekend though, I think the following offer the most promise.
Denver's high powered offense is going up against a weak Jets' secondary favored by 10 points. Since the Jets can't put up a lot of points this number is probably realistic, however I don't like such a high number for a road team with their starting running back out.
The New England Patriots are -3 at Buffalo against the Bills. After looking impressive last week against the Bengals, logic would say they should have an easy time with Kyle Orton and the Bills. If the Bills get the running game going though, they might be able to keep this one a little too close for comfort. I feel a little bit better about betting the over in this game at 45 points. New England put up 43 on a tough Bengals defense last week and might have finally put some things together on offense.
The Ravens and Packers are both favored by 3.5 on the road. The Packers seam to be gaining momentum, so i would feel ok about taking them against the Dolphins. The Ravens however are facing a Tampa Bay Bucs team that is playing hard for coach Lovie Smith. Lovie coached teams always seem to play tight games and spoil bettor's weekends.
The Game I like the most this week would be for the Pittsburgh Steelers to bounce back on the road against the Cleveland Browns. The Steelers are 1 point dogs and I like them to outright win. A home team should automatically get 3 points if they are indeed the favorite. So the Browns only getting one point is a sign that I want to jump on the Steelers.
Good luck this week betters! I will be sitting on my money this week but maybe I will regret it.
