The early NFL Week 6 betting spreads are out and there is some early value you can cash in on by the end of the week.
NFL Spread Betting Analysis Week 6
Washington Redskins -3.5 at Miami Dolphins
Washington played the New England Patriots super tough for a full half in Week 5. But, then, as it does in every football game, the second half happened. New England pummeled D.C.’s team 33-7. Don’t expect Washington to get down on themselves, though. They should still cover against the worst team in the NFL, right?
Then again, there’s nothing that tells us Miami is a worse team than Washington. The Dolphins head into Week 6 off their bye. That alone should give them some confidence. They also take on D.C. at home. Washington should beat the Dolphins and cover. However, the Fins will play with enthusiasm while D.C. most definitely won’t.
Philadelphia Eagles at Minnesota Vikings -3
The 3 points could mean a lot in this matchup. Minnesota dominated the New York Giants 28-10 while Philadelphia looked good spanking the New York Jets. We don’t even have to consider the Eagles-Jets score because NYJ is so, so very bad.
One thing we must consider is how well Minnesota’s defense has played. The Vikings allow 292.4 total yards and only 14.6 points per. So, even though this game is a tough one to handicap, Minnesota’s superior defense should be what leads to a win and cover.
New Orleans Saints -2 at Jacksonville Jaguars
The line should change dramatically once NFL handicappers get a chance to digest how well Saints’ backup quarterback Teddy Bridgewater played in Week 5. Facing a hungry Tampa defense, Bridgewater carved them up like a Thanksgiving turkey. He threw for 312 yards and tossed 4 TD passes.
Saints’ coach Sean Payton finally let the former Louisville and Minnesota Vikings quarterback loose. Did he respond or what? The Jaguars have their own strong, young, good looking quarterback in Gardner Minshew. But, Gradner doesn’t have the weapons Teddy’s got. Saints cover.
Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens -10.5
Lamar Jackson has some flaws in his game, no doubt. But, he’s got something that many quarterbacks don’t have, a closer’s mentality. Lamar threw 3 picks against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers this past Sunday. Although he had every right to get down on himself, he didn’t. Instead, he rallied the Ravens to a big 26-23 straight up overtime road win versus Steel Town.
Jackson should have no trouble running and throwing against a Cincinnati squad that appears to have already thrown in the towel. Playing at home, the Bengals were favored over the Arizona Cardinals. They let Lamar’s mini-me, that’s Kyler Murray, throw for 253 yards and rush for 93 yards and a TD. The real Lamar should do more damage than that on Sunday.
Atlanta Falcons -2.5 at Arizona Cardinals
Atlanta’s horrible. No, they’re straight-up bad. It’s difficult to understand how a team that’s 1-4 SU and ATS and that allowed 30.4 points per before counting the 53 they allowed in Week 5 is favored over a slightly below-average team like Arizona on the road.
The Cardinals should score at will against the Falcons while, let’s be honest, the ATL is more fried chicken than hunting falcons right now. Take the points all day in this matchup as long as AZ are the dogs.
