NFL Week 6 Opening Lines & Betting Analysis
There are a few considerable point spreads when we look at NFL gambling sites Week 6 betting odds. Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay are -7.5 faves over Zach Wilson and the NY Jets. Another one-sided line is Matthew Stafford and the LA Rams as -10.5 home chalk over the Panthers.
That line is not too much of a surprise if we consider that Carolina fired head coach Matt Rhule this week and Steve Wilks was appointed as the interim head coach. The line, though, would have been sizable regardless.
Tom Brady will be back in Pittsburgh, where his Bucs are -8.5 road faves over the Steelers. There are some thin point spreads in there, too. The Bengals (-2) face the Holy Ones in New Orleans. The Colts are also (-2) at home versus the Jaguars.
Commanders vs. Bears Odds by MyBookie.ag
|Commanders||PK ( -110)||38 ( -110 )||-110|
|Bears||PK ( -110)||38 ( -110 )||-110|
Bettors at the best online sportsbooks do not expect a lot of excitement from this torpid match-up that seems rather unworthy of a TNF prime time slot. The Bears still hold on as one-point home faves, but there has occurred a big downward swing with the total. After they opened as high as 40 the Over/Under did drop to 38.5 on Monday. That trend went on on Tuesday with most sportsbooks cutting the number to 37.5.
It is hard to gauge what Washington’s identity is at this point, other than as a pass-happy (well, not so much happy but you get the idea). The Commanders posted just 12 carries on Sunday and Wentz passed 38 times. That pushed the team’s pass play rate to 66.7%.
49ers vs. Falcons Odds
|49ers||-5½ ( -110 )||44½ ( -110 )||-245|
|Falcons||+5½ ( -110 )||44½ ( -110 )||+195|

|Patriots||+2½ ( -110 )||43½ ( -110 )||+125|

|Colts||-1½ ( -110 )||42 ( -110 )||-130|
The condition of Indianapolis running back Jonathan Taylor will have an effect on this line as the week unfolds. Indy has enjoyed a mini bye since they squeaked out a gross win on last Thursday and they opened as 1.5-point home chalk to the Jags in Week 6. The Jags have lost back-to-back games and they haven’t looked anything like the team went on to shut out the Colts in Week 3.

|Rams||-10½ ( -110 )||41 ( -110 )||-500|
Baker Mayfield suffered a high-ankle sprain and will be sidelined for Sunday’s game in LA against the Rams. Some might think this is good for the Panthers, but sportsbooks did adjust the spread to Rams -11 and also decreased the total from 41.5 to 40.5.
