2018 NFL Week 6 Odds Overview & Predictions for Each Game.

NFL Week 6 Odds, Overview & Predictions for Each Game

Written by on October 8, 2018


When you think of the NFL’s best receivers, you may not think of Minnesota’s Adam Thielen. You should. In Sunday’s upset win in Philadelphia, Thielen became only the third player in NFL history with at least 100 receiving yards in each of his team’s first five games to start a season. The record to start a season is seven. Here’s a look at the odds for every NFL Week 6 game. The Lions and Saints are on the bye.
 

2018 NFL Week 6 Odds Overview & Predictions for Each Game

 

Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants (+2.5)


Thursday night game. Might not even take a winning record to win the lousy NFC East this year. The Eagles have looked anything but super in the early going at 2-3. They were 23-21 home losers to the Vikings on Sunday. All last season, the Eagles lost just three games. The Giants simply aren’t very good but were a bit unlucky to lose 33-31 at Carolina on Sunday. Roll with the home side here.
 

Tampa Bay Bucs at Atlanta Falcons (-4)


Two really bad defensive teams here. Tampa comes off its bye and will return Jameis Winston to his starting role at quarterback. Not a big surprise that Ryan Fitzpatrick faded. The Falcons were torched Sunday in Pittsburgh, 41-17. Take Atlanta.
 

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals (-3)


The Bengals are all alone in first place in the AFC North following their 27-17 comeback win over Miami on Sunday. Michael Johnson returned an interception for the tying score, and Sam Hubbard went 19 yards with a fumble for the clinching touchdown. The Steelers played their best game of the year in routing the Falcons. Go Cincinnati.
 

LA Chargers at Cleveland Browns (+1.5)


Break up the Browns! They already have two wins, which is double what they had the past two seasons combined. The beat the Ravens in overtime on Sunday and could be 5-0 instead of 2-2-1. The Chargers had little trouble in beating Oakland 26-10. Take Cleveland.
 

Seattle Seahawks vs. Oakland Raiders (+2.5)

A game in London. Oakland might be the AFC’s worst team after losing by 16 at the Chargers on Sunday. Good thin Jon Gruden has a long-term contract. The Seahawks played well Sunday and covered in a 33-31 home loss to the Rams. They couldn’t make a late stop to have a chance to win. Go Oakland.  

Chicago Bears at Miami Dolphins (pick’em)

The Bears were one of the surprise stories of the first month at 3-1 and with Khalil Mack playing not like just the Defensive Player of the Year but an MVP. They are off a bye week. Miami dropped its second straight Sunday, falling in Cincinnati. That 3-0 start is a distant memory. Take Bears.  

Arizona Cardinals at Minnesota Vikings (-10)

There will be no winless teams in the NFL this year as the Cardinals were the last to get a victory, upsetting the 49ers in San Francisco. Rookie QB Josh Rosen looked so-so. The Vikings were upset winners in Philadelphia in a rematch of the NFC title game. Take Minnesota.  

Indianapolis Colts at New York Jets (-3)

The Colts are on extra rest after losing at the Patriots on Thursday without a handful of injured starters. Sam Darnold had the best game of his young career in leading the Jets past Denver on Sunday to snap a three-game skid. Go Jets.  

Carolina Panthers at Washington Redskins (-2.5)

This line could change depending on what the Redskins do Monday night in New Orleans. The Panthers were very lucky to avoid a home upset to the Giants on Sunday. Graham Gano hit a career-long 63-yard field goal with one second left for the win. Go Carolina.  

Buffalo Bills at Houston Texans (-8.5)

The Bills were upset winners on Sunday in beating visiting Tennessee 13-12. Stephen Hauschka hit a 46-yard field goal as time expired.   The Texans look like a good pick for NFL Week 6.   The Texans are sort of on a short week after hosting Dallas on Sunday night. Take Houston.  

LA Rams at Denver Broncos (+6.5)

The Rams are one of two unbeaten left as they won a wild one in Seattle on Sunday. The Broncos looked awful on a short week Sunday in getting stomped at a bad Jets team. This feels like a bit of a trap game for L.A. Bet Denver.  

Jacksonville Jaguars at Dallas Cowboys (+1.5)

The Jags had more than 500 yards of offense Sunday in Kansas City but their offense turned it over five times and the Chiefs won comfortably. You just can’t trust Blake Bortles sometimes. Sure, he had 430 yards but four picks, one returned for a touchdown. Go Jags here.  

Baltimore Ravens at Tennessee Titans (+1.5)

The Titans could easily be 0-5 instead of 3-2 as every game has gone down to the wire. They were on the unfortunate end Sunday in Buffalo with their offense struggling. The Ravens were overtime losers in Cleveland. They had a chance to win at the end of regulation but Michael Crabtree dropped the potential game-winning TD pass. Take Ravens.  

Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots (-3.5)

Certainly one of the most important games in the AFC this season as the Chiefs look to remain that conference’s only team without a loss. Since a two-game skid, the Patriots have looked back to normal in winning two in a row. They hand the Chiefs their first L.  

San Francisco 49ers at Green Bay Packers (-7.5)

Green Bay had a really weird loss Sunday in Detroit. Mason Crosby missed a career-high four field goals as well as an extra point. Aaron Rodgers lost two fumbles. The Niners were upset home losers to the previously winless Cardinals and just aren’t the same without Jimmy Garoppolo. Go Pack.
