With the start of the 2016 NFL regular season quickly approaching, you’re going to find that the early NFL betting predictions you’re about to get on every game on the Week 6 docket, simply salivating! Let’s rock and roll!
Let’s Take a Look at the 2016 Week 6 ATS Betting Picks
After losing to Denver twice last season, but covering the spread as a 10-point underdog in their road date against the Broncos, I say Philip Rivers and the Bolts get a small measure of payback by getting the home win over Denver in this Week 6 AFC West divisional clash.

San Francisco 49ers at Buffalo Bills (-7)
The Bills have an aggressive defense and solid offense, but the Niners are the pick for me, to a least keep it close on the road against a Rex Ryan Bills team that often underachieves when you least expect it.
Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins (-3)
The Skins have won three straight against Philly while covering the spread in four straight. I’m not real high on Washington heading into 2016, but I like the Redskins to win and cover over the rebuilding Birds and their first-year head coach Doug Pederson.
Cleveland Browns at Tennessee Titans (-3.5)
I love Browns head coach Hue Jackson more than Tennessee’s Mike Mularkey and still believe that RG3 can be a franchise quarterback. The Browns cover the spread in a thriller!
Baltimore Ravens at New York Giants (-3)
I don’t think there’s gong to b much defense played in this Week 6 affair. The edge – and ATS cover – goes to Eli Manning and the G-Men at home.
Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints (+4.5)
The Panthers ad Saints can both light up the scoreboard but only one team lays any sort of competent defense in this affair and it’s not New Orleans. Cam Newton and company get the SU win an accompanying ATS cover.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Chicago Bears (-3.5)
John Fox will make sure that Jay Cutler and the rest of his Chicago Bears know this is a game they can’t afford to lose against an inferior opponent and that’s the only reason Chicago covers the NFL betting line!
Los Angeles Rams at Detroit Lions (-1.5)
Not many folks are talking about Matthew Stafford and the Lions, but I believe they could surprise in a big way in 2016. Detroit wins and covers the NFL betting line with room to spare!
Pittsburgh Steelers at Miami Dolphins (+3.5)
Maybe it’s me, but I think Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger could throw a football left- handed better than Miami’s Ryan Tannehill ever could with his dominant hand. Pittsburgh wins and covers the spread going away.
Cincinnati Bengals at New England Patriots (-4)
With Week 6 representing the second game that Tom Brady will play in 2016, I expect the Patriots to be firing on all cylinders. New England wins while sending a message to the Bengals and every other AFC title contender.
Kansas City Chiefs at Oakland Raiders (PK)
The Chiefs have won three straight over the Raiders and five of the last six meetings overall, but I’m going with Oakland to snap that skid by getting the narrow home win as a pick ‘em.
Atlanta Falcons at Seattle Seahawks (-10)
The Seahawks get the home win in this Week 6 NFC clash, but I think the double-digit point spread is just a tad too high for Russell Wilson and company to cover. Atlanta covers in a losing effort.
Dallas Cowboys at Green Bay Packers (-6)
The Packers have won five straight over the Cowboys while going 4-1 ATS along the way. I say Aaron Rodgers and company will make it six straight while narrowly covering the NFL betting line.
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans (-1.5)
While I’m expecting the Indianapolis Colts to bounce back in a big way with Andrew Luck back under center, the Houston Texans are my pick to bring home the bacon in this Week 6 AFC South divisional showdown mostly because they have the far better defense.

New York Jets at Arizona Cardinals (-4)
The Jets have an elite defense, but so does Arizona. When it comes to offense, the Cardinals are far and away the superior team. Carson Palmer and company cover with room to spare!
