Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys will look to shake off their heartache from their Week 5 loss to Denver when they battle RGII and the Washington Redskins in an NFC East thriller that highlights this NFL Week 6 betting free picks.
In other action, Andrew Luck and the red-hot Indianapolis Colts will look to keep their winning streak alive when they visit Philip Rivers and the inconsistent San Diego Chargers in an AFC contest that could have postseason implications for both teams, even at this early juncture of the season.
In the third game of this trifecta special, the mediocre Arizona Cardinals will attempt to pull off the huge upset by beating the Super Bowl hopeful San Francisco 49ers.
All three contests are offering NFL gridiron gamblers an excellent opportunity to cash in with potentially winning wagers.
Washington at Dallas
The Washington Redskins (1-3 SU, 1-3 ATS) got a much-needed bye in Week 5 following their also very necessary, 24-14 Week 4 road win over Oakland as a 3.5-point road favorite.
The Dallas Cowboys (2-3 SU, 4-1 ATS) will look to get over their crushing 51-48 home loss to Peyton Manning and the Broncos, though they covered the spread as a 7.5-point home underdog.
The Redskins got a nice win over Oakland as Griffith II turned in an error-free performance against Oakland, but they actually won because the since-released Matt Flynn played absolutely horrible football in throwing one pick and losing two fumbles.
Dallas had a win snatched away by Manning the high-scoring Broncos, though they gave the undefeated AFC title contenders all they could handle and then some.
Analysis: For this contest, I am going to advise NFL pro football bettors to back the Washington Redskins in spite of their slow start this season.
You see, the Cowboys have not beaten Washington at home by more than three points in five years and I don’t see them doing so in this contest, particularly with RG III getting healthier by the week.
The Skins took both of last season’s two NFC East divisional meetings and they’ve been able to put points on the board this season, even in their losses.
Washington is going to be well-rested and RGIII is likely looking to put on a show for the Dallas faithful.
The Redskins are a perfect 6-0 ATS in their last half-dozen meetings against the Cowboys and a blistering 13-3 in the last 16 meetings overall.
Last but not least, the Underdog in this series is 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings overall.
RGII and the Skins are the easy pick here as they could very well get the outright win.
The Pick: Washington +5.5 Points
Arizona at San Francisco
San Francisco -9.5
The Arizona Cardinals (3-2 SU, 4-1 ATS) shocked a lot of people (including me) by pounding the Carolina Panthers in Week 5 to record a convincing 22-6 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 5 and cash in as a
3-point home underdog and move to 2-0 ATS over the last two games.
The San Francisco 49ers (3-2 SU, 3-2 ATS) absolutely spanked the Houston Texans 34-3 in Week 5 to easily cover the spread as a 4-point home favorite and move to 2-0 ATS over their last two games.
Analysis: For this contest, I’m going to keep it very simple by saying that there is no way the 49ers lose this game to a divisional rival that appears to have gone belly up, even at this early point in the season.
The Cardinals are 5-1 ATS in their last six games against their NFC conference rivals, but they’re also 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight home games against a team with a winning record while the Niners have gone 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games in the month of October and a near-perfect 4-1 ATS in their last five games against their NFC Conference rivals.
Finally, Arizona has gone 2-7 TS in their last nine games against San Francisco.
Back the Super Bowl contender in this one and call it a day.
Free Picks: San Francisco 49ers -9.5 Points
Indianapolis at San Diego
San Diego +1
Gifted quarterback Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts (4-1 SU, 3-2 ATS) are on fire, having won three straight games while covering the spread each time out.
The San Diego Chargers (2-3 SU, 3-1-1 ATS) continue to be one of the most perplexing teams in the league, having lost to lowly Oakland 27-17 in Week 5 while never coming close to covering the spread as a
Analysis: The Colts are playing fantastic football on both sides of the ball, having allowed just 38 total pints over their last 12 quarters while scoring at least 27 points in each of their last three games and at least 34 in each of their last two.
This pick is as simple as pie, even though the wildly inconsistent Chargers could decide at any moment, to actually play legitimate football.
Indianapolis bagged their Week 5 win over the previously undefeated Seahawks by using a very good defense to keep the Seahawks mostly in check and I believe they’re going to do so again against the Bolts.
Indianapolis is 8-0 ATS in their last eight games against a team with a winning record and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games.
The Chargers are 0-6 ATS in their last half dozen home games against a team with a winning road record and an identicalsix0-6 ATS in their last 6 games in October.
Keep it simple and now…black the musc.
The Pick: Indianapolis -9.5 points
