Since the start of the season, we have spoken regularly about the current level of parity in the NFL, and how it makes predicting games that much tougher. A perfect example of this could be seen in Week 5, where we had 10 games decided by 7 points or less. Looking ahead to Week 6, we see a lot of the spreads sitting very much in that range, and while it certainly makes things more challenging, that is all part of the fun of wagering on the NFL. We are ahead of the game with our ATS picks for the season, going 8-4 to this point, as well as putting together a 24-12 record with all our selections combined. It’s about time for a perfect week, so let’s see of we can manage that with our ATS picks for Week 6 of the NFL season. Let’s get right to it so you can bet against the NFL Odds.
Week 6 Against The Spread Betting Picks | 2022 National Football League Odds
Cincinnati Bengals (-1 ½) at New Orleans Saints
Making it to the Super Bowl is no guarantee of success the following season, which is what we are seeing with the two teams who went to the championship game last season. The Bengals, who lost to the Rams in the SB, are sitting at 2-3 on the season, but are still very much in the hunt in the AFC North at the moment. That said, they need to start stringing together some wins if they are to make it to the playoffs and go on another run. This weekend is certainly not an easy road trip for them, as New Orleans is never a pleasant place to play for visitors. The Bengals, though, have been a great road pick, going 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games away from home.
Dallas Cowboys (+4 ½) at Philadelphia Eagles
One of the games of the week is an NFC East matchup that will see the winner land on top of the division. The Eagles are there right now, courtesy of being the only team in the NFL with an unbeaten record, but the Cowboys, as well as the Giants, are hot on their tail. The Cowboys have bounced back nicely from a Week 1 loss and losing their QB to reel off 4 in a row. There is talk that Dak Prescott might be back for this one, so keep an eye on the spread if that is indeed announced. Prescott or not, I still like the Cowboys to cover as a road dog here, as they have covered in 10 of their last 11 games played away from home.
Carolina Panthers at LA Rams (-11)
We are just 5 weeks into the season, but we already have out first coaching casualty, with the Panthers deciding to part ways with Matt Rhule. While the Panthers have just 1 win on the season, you have to feel some sympathy for Rhule, as his team has been hit with the injury bug, with Baker Mayfield the latest to go down. Sometimes, we will see a team get a nice bounce after a coach is fired, but I don’t think we will see that this weekend. The Rams have been struggling, but this feels like the kind of matchup where they can put right some wrongs. The Panthers are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games.
