NFL picks, predictions against spread Week 6: The Hackers Take The Packers; Cowboys and bears win again


Selecting NFL matches in a particular season is challenging, but certainly more difficult in 2020. Between the lack of local stadium benefits created by few to zero crowds and rescheduling of rampant games due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a neutral location feeling for the season. entire.

Because of that, no favorite appears to be vulnerable and every underdog has some hope. Given this, our choices and expectations were straightforward and against the spreads were good during the fifth week.

But how well we are doing means nothing if we can’t support him with another strong show in Week 6. Here’s our latest bold predictions for the ATS, with odds coming up directly from Las Vegas:

Picks NFL against the spread for Week 6

  • Game of the Week NFC: Packers (-2.5, 53.5 o / u) at Buccaneers

Sunday, 4:25 PM ET, Fox

The Packers have goodbye to preparing for that big NFC test while the Bucs are out for a week long, after losing in the Bears last Thursday night. Green Bay would do whatever he wanted offensively with Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones, but that’s a challenge on the road against good defense and fast passing. The Tampa Bay attack must bring Chris Goodwin back to help Tom Brady and Mike Evans with the pass game, and he really does manage the ball well. Rodgers faces more resistance than Brady with his limited weapons, while Team Bucs has an explosive breakthrough at the heart of an undefeated competitor.

Picking: The pirates win 34-27.

  • Game of the Week in Asia: Bosses (-3, 57.5 ° / u) in Bills

Monday, 5 p.m. ET, Fox, NFL Network and Amazon Prime Video

The Chiefs don’t need to play short a week after losing to the Raiders at home, but the Bills still faced a fairly quick turnaround on the way home to their toughest competitors in the young season. Patrick Mahomes is not used to losing, menstruating, and he’s not going to let his squad fall for weeks on end. Freaking out Josh Allen and Phils would bring that in, trying to emulate Mahomis’ big plays, but in the end, the young gunslinger wasn’t quite as high as Mahoms yet.

Picking: The heads win 31-27 and cover the spread.

  • Week Lock: Steelers (-3.5, 51 ° / U) over Brown

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

The Steelers (4-0) made their best start ever in the era of Mike Tomlin Ben Rothlesberger. Brown finally found their perfect coach in Kevin Stefansky. Cleveland’s heavy attack took the pressure off Baker Mayfield. Roehtlisberger is well supported by James Konner and has an endless twitch of receivers on his return from an elbow injury. However, the Steelers still had the better public defense, and at home, they would want to make a statement that they represent the real threat to oust the Ravens in the department.

Picking: The Steelers wins 34-20 and covers the gap.

Monday, 8:15 PM ET, ESPN

Keeler Murray and Dandrey Hopkins would be causing a lot of trouble for a rickety cowboy defense, no doubt. So will Kenyan Drake and Chase Edmunds be knocked out of the back court, and this week Larry Fitzgerald can make an even bigger difference in the tight end and the veteran player. But the Cardinals’ defense didn’t stop much either, and he wouldn’t have Chandler Jones to go after Andy Dalton. They really don’t have answers to slow down Ezekiel Elliott and cover Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup. Dallas inspires once again without Dak Prescott as Dalton searches deeply for another winning match at the end.

Picking: Cowboy wins 34-31.

  • Broncos in the Patriots (-7.5, 44.5 ° u)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

This game will finally be played in Week 6 and still not very interesting. Denver’s defense is exhausted, and his crime, even if Drew Locke manages to make a comeback, doesn’t have much with Noah Phantom and it is possible that KJ Hamler will join Cortland Sutton off the shelf. The Patriots will focus on banishing Melvin Gordon and the running match first, and put the selection of the young Broncos team in poor positions. Whether or not Cam Newton is able to play in New England, find Bill Belischik’s squad to go hard to slam the door on Denver.

Picking: The Patriots win 30-14 and cover the gap.

  • Texas in Titans (-2, 52.5 ° / u)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

There was a liberating feeling in Texas when they tore up the Jaguars in their first match without Bill O’Brien. Deshawn Watson seemed more flexible playing with his large arm and legs all over the field. They put all their weapons to good use for the first time throughout the season. The defense also appeared to want to overtake caretaker coach Romeo Krenell. Giants had a good early start derailed by cancellations and they will need to recover in a really short week after facing the strong banknotes. Find Houston to steal this in Nashville because of Watson and slowly crept back into the South Asian race.

Picking: Texas win 30-27.

  • Crows in vultures (-7.5, 46.5 ° / u)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, CBS

Crows don’t work as freely with Lamar Jackson and their committee of Mark Ingram, JK Dobbins, and Jos Edwards, as expected. Nor did they extend their passing play beyond Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown. This is a tough spot for a struggling Jackson, with a strong defensive front that excels at stopping the run and applying pressure. On the flip side, Carson faces Wentz, a seven active frontman in Baltimore who can pressure the Philadelphia attack as well. Jackson and Wentz play in a tough draw, with a big late kick from Justin Tucker making the difference.

Picking: The crows win 23-20 but fail to cover the gap.

  • Washington Football Team at the Giants (-3, 43 o / u)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

Who will start Washington in quarterback? Who knows it wouldn’t be Dwayne Haskins, nor do we feel complacent about Kyle Allen or Alex Smith with limitations around. Terry MacLauren paces another tough showdown with James Bradbury, and Washington will not take full advantage of the Giants’ running defense issues. Daniel Jones throws the ducks over the dimes and still can’t protect the ball well. But the receiving wire is waking up for a long time, and Devonta Freeman has recently lit the running game. Giants come out of last place and claim their first win.

Picking: The Giants win 20-16 and cover the gap.

  • Falcons in Vikings (-3.5, 56.5 ° C)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

The Falcons will play under interim coach Rahim Morris after Dan Quinn has been sent off, looking for a spark that resembles a Texas one on the road. Unfortunately, Morris would see the same defensive issues on the surface against a hasty attack from the elite, even if Alexander Mattison had appeared on an injured Dolphin Cook. Falcons also can’t cover Adam Tillin or Justin Jefferson. Minnesota will dominate acquisition time for another week, but this time it will easily fail Matt Ryan, likely without Julio Jones again.

Picking: Vikings win 33-24 and cover the spread.

  • Lions (-3.5, 54.5 ° C) in a jaguar

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

The Lions plays for more than just pride as Matt Patricia’s job hangs in the balance based on how they do after farewell. Look for lions to view more D’Andre Swift in the running game and Matthew Stafford can spot Jaguars’s shaky defense that breaks more due to injuries. Gardner Minshew will come with some spunky answers, even if he’s without DJ Chark. You can flip a coin between Honolulu Blue and Teal 100 times and the two teams will lose 50 times. Let’s roll with the lion as a bigger cats.

Picking: The Lions win 27-24 but fail to cover the gap.

  • Bengals in foals (-8, 46.5 ° / u)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

Imagine if it was Joe Borough Colt. Imagine if Philip Rivers was from Bengal. Things would look a lot different, right? Burrow is undoubtedly the best QB and Rivers’ bad playing should make Indianapolis think more about Jacoby Brissette or apprentice Jacob Eason to save what could be a watershed season. The Colts team showed some defensive slits against sprinting and hatch last week, which should be a big deal for Joe Mixon and Tyler Boyd. Fortunately, Indy can simply run with Jonathan Taylor to protect Rivers and tis defense in order to escape from the cramped house opposite Cincy.

Picking: Colts win 20-24 but fail to cover the difference.

  • Bears in cheetahs (-2.5, 44 ° / u)

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET, Fox

It’s hard to believe that the Bears 4-1 and the Panthers 3-2 in this match, which makes it very important for NFC wildcard racing. Nick Falls didn’t play it all well, but he got Allen Robinson, David Montgomery and Jimmy Graham to help him move the ball and the Panthers weren’t equipped to stop that trio. Teddy Bridgewater let rip off into Robby Anderson and DJ Moore with Bear Mike Davis playing in the backfield supersub. But he is already suffering from blitzkrieg and will be Chuck Pagano with Khalil Mac and others after the race is contained.

Picking: Bears win 20-17.

  • Aircraft in Dolphins (-9.5, 47 o / u)

Sunday 4:05 PM ET, CBS

The jets were supposed to play the Charger, but does that really matter? They continue to show limited lives with Adam Gas and Greg Williams, while the dolphins bounce more in their stride thanks to Ryan Fitzpatrick, Brian Flores, and Chan Jelly. The Jets have no answers about DeVante Parker, Preston Williams, and Mike Gesicki and they won’t be able to stop Myles Gaskin either. Le’Veon Bell himself loves some South Beach, but has to hate crime with Jamison Crowder as the only playmaker.

Picking: Dolphins win 23-13 and cover the gap.

  • Rams (-3.5, 51 ° / U) at 49 seconds

Sunday, 8:20 PM ET, NBC

The 49 players are in a hit-and-run mess, nothing like Super Bowl 54. The Rams are a well-organized whiz attack with a dominant defense once again, much like Super Bowl 53. This is not an uphill road trip down the coast and the teams have played the season’s classics the past. The 49 players have a puzzle in QB and D not equipped to stop a balanced Los Angeles attack.

Picking: The Rams win 27-20 and cover the gap.
