Expert Picks NFL Week 6
Do you need the inside info on a few good Week 6 expert picks? I have a trio of picks that fit the bill perfectly!

Can Jay Cutler and the Miami Dolphins put enough points on the board to keep up with Matt Ryan and the explosive Atlanta Falcons?

Can Hue Jackson’s Cleveland Browns finally pick up a win against Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans?

Are the surprisingly feisty New York Jets in trouble when they face Tom Brady and a semi-desperate New England Patriots team in their Week 6 AFC East divisional matchup?

5 ⭐ Expert Picks NFL Week 6

Miami Dolphins (2-2) at Atlanta Falcons (3-1)
When: Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia
NFL Odds: Atlanta -11
Total: 47

Analysis: The Miami Dolphins may have picked up an oh-so-exciting (Not!) 16-10 win over a Tennessee Titans team that was without starting quarterback Marcus Mariota tis past weekend, but they damned sure aren’t going to score enough points to keep up with Matt Ryan and an Atlanta Falcons team that is looking to light up the scoreboard after getting stunned by Buffalo 23-17 in Week 4 and is well rested after a bye this past weekend.

Miami has scored 22 total points over their last three games and looks mostly inept while averaging all of 10.3 points this season under the guidance of the pitiful Jay Cutler while Atlanta puts 26.0 points per game on the board with the greatest of ease!

The Dolphins are 3-8 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and just 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games after racking up less than 250 total yards of offense in their previous game.

Matt Ryan and the Falcons are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following an ATS loss and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week. Atlanta wins and easily covers the chalk making the Falcons my top Week 6 NFL expert pick.

Expert Pick Week 6: Atlanta -11

Cleveland Browns (0-5) at Houston Texans (2-3)
When: Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas
NFL Odds: Houston -10
Total: 44.5

Analysis: The Houston Texans may have lost superstar defensive end J.J. Watt to a likely season-ending knee injury, but they’ve still got a quarterback that looks like a mixture of Joe Montana and Fran Tarkenton in seriously gifted rookie Deshaun Watson.

I said it before and I’ll say it again. While No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett is undoubtedly the ‘real deal’ he just can’t change the course of a game or franchise like Watson can at quarterback. The Browns – and every other team that needed a quarterback – seriously blew it by not drafting Watson with the No. 1 overall pick and now the Browns are going to pay for it in this Week 7 matchup.

The Browns are 1-7 ATS in their L/8 games against a team with a losing record, 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games in the month of October and a winless 0-5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games.

Houston has gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight-up loss and 19-6-2 ATS in their last 27 games after racking up more than 350 yards of total offense in their previous game. That is more than enough to make the Texans one of my Week 6 NFL expert betting picks.

Expert Pick Week 6: Houston -10

New England Patriots (3-2) at New York Jets (3-2)
When: Sunday, October 15, 2017 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey
NFL Odds: New England -9.5
Total: 47.5

Analysis: While the New York Jets have played some pretty inspiring football to record a winning record after five weeks, I believe that Todd Bowles’ team is going down and going down hard against Tom Brady and a New England Patriots team that is borderline desperate after their identical 3-2 start after five games.

The Patriots finally showed they could play come competent defense in beating Tampa Bay 19-14 in Week 5 and while the Jets got past Cleveland 17-14 last weekend, they certainly didn’t look that good in beating the lowly Browns. The Patriots have won five of the last six meetings against the Jets and again, have a bit of desperation that I think will drive them to get the outright win by double digits to cover the spread.

Tom Brady and company are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last six road games against a team with a winning home record, a near-perfect 10-1 ATS in their last 11 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against a team with a winning record. The New York Jets are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game and I believe they’re due for a spanking even though they’ve played some really good football this season.

The Pats are my last NFL Week 6 expert pick.

Expert Pick Week 6: New England -9.5
