NFL Betting: 2021 Regular Season Week 6 Predictions

Posted by Derrick Harper on October 12, 2021 in

After a wild slate of games in Week 5, we’re ready to head into Week 6 on National Football League action. Let’s take a look at the early NFL Betting lines, and we’ll even make some predictions.

Week 6 NFL  Odds Overview & Predictions for Each Game

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Philadelphia Eagles (+7)

While Tampa Bay was destroying the Miami Dolphins, the Eagles had a hard-earned victory over the Carolina Panthers. Tom Brady seems to get better every week. The Philadelphia offense just can’t seem to get on track. The Tampa defense will give them issues. 

We like the Bucs to win this Thursday night matchup by 10.

Miami Dolphins @ Jacksonville Jaguars (+3)

The Jaguars will be the host team for another London game. Jacksonville just can’t seem to catch any breaks. Trevor Lawrence seems to be getting better each week, but the Jags just can’t get over the hump. As for the Dolphins, they’re in a tailspin. The defense, which was thought to be one of the best in the league, has been abysmal. The Dolphins’ offensive line has issues, and the offense looks stagnant.

We look for a lot of points to be scored in this one. Miami wins by a touchdown.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Baltimore Ravens (-3.5)

At the time of this writing, the Ravens were losing to the Colts on Monday night. The Chargers won a shootout over the Cleveland Browns last week. Justin Herbert looks like one of, if not the best quarterback in the league right now. Mike Williams has turned into one of the best receivers in the league this season. He’ll draw Marlon Humphrey next week, and that’ll be a huge challenge.

The Chargers are playing well, and we look for them to continue to play well. They’ll come into Baltimore and win.

Minnesota Vikings @ Carolina Panthers (-1.5)

Both of these teams struggled last week. Even though they won, the Vikings struggled with the Lions. Carolina lost a tough one to the Philadelphia Eagles. Sam Darnold and company will be able to move the ball against a porous Minnesota defense. We’re not sure if Dalvin Cook will play for the Vikings or not.

Right now, we’re leaning towards the Panthers winning this one by a field goal.

Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears (+4.5)

The Justin Fields era has begun in Chicago. He led the Bears to a victory in Sin City last Sunday. The Packers tried numerous times to lose to the Bengals, but Mason Crosby finally made a field goal to lead the Packers to the victory. Aaron Rodgers seems to have Chicago’s number.

The Packers win the game, but won’t cover.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Detroit Lions (+3.5)

Cincinnati lost in overtime to Green Bay, while the Lions were beaten by a last-second field goal. The Lions have been so close to victory numerous times, but it has eluded them. This will finally be the week that things go the Lions way, right?

Wrong. The Bengals win the game by a field goal and don’t cover.

Houston Texans @ Indianapolis Colts (-10.5)

This season has been a train wreck for the Texans. Last week, they blew a huge lead, and lost to the Patriots. The Colts were beating the Ravens in the 4th quarter at the time of this writing. The Colts defense is good, and Carson Wentz is starting to play better.

The Colts win by 14.

Los Angeles Rams @ New York Giants (+10.5)

The Rams look like a Super Bowl team, while the Giants can’t seem to stay healthy. We’re not sure who will be under center for the Giants, as Daniel Jones left last week’s game with a concussion. We know that Saquon Barkley will be out for a few weeks.

The Rams will be too much for the hobbled Giants to handle. Take the Rams and the cover in this one.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Washington Football Team (+6.5)

A few weeks ago, this matchup was thought to be one of the league’s best offenses against one of the league’s best defenses. After watching the WFT’s defense the last few weeks, they can hardly stop anyone. But then again, neither can Kansas City’s defense.

We will see a lot of points scored, but Kansas City will be too much for the WFT. The Chiefs will win by 7.

Arizona Cardinals @ Cleveland Browns (-2.5)

The Cardinals are the league’s one undefeated team. The Browns lost a heartbreaker to the Chargers last week. The Browns defense will rebound this week. Arizona’s defense has been one of the biggest surprises in the league.

After this one, the 1972 Miami Dolphins can pop the champagne, as the Browns will beat the Cardinals, and cover the spread in the process.

Las Vegas Raiders @ Denver Broncos (-3)

After all of the Jon Gruden resignation issues bog down the Raiders, they then have to go to Denver. The Raiders will be tired, and the Denver defense will be too much for them to overcome.

Take the Broncos in this one.

Dallas Cowboys @ New England Patriots (+3.5)

The Cowboys’ defense has been a pleasant surprise this season. We knew Dallas could score points, but we weren’t sure if they could stop anyone. The Patriots have been very inconsistent all season. 

Even though Bill Belichick was able to slow Tom Brady down, they won’t be able to slow down the Dallas offense. Dallas wins by 10.

Seattle Seahawks @ Pittsburgh Steelers (-4)

Geno Smith is starting for the Seahawks on Sunday night in Pittsburgh. Enough said.

We’re taking the Steelers to win and cover the spread.

Buffalo Bills @ Tennessee Titans (+4.5)

The Bills looked like the best team in the NFL while dismantling the Chiefs last Sunday night. Tennessee took it to the Jaguars. We see the Titans trying to keep Josh Allen off of the field with a steady diet of Derrick Henry. That will work for a while, but once Allen gets on the field, the weak Titan defense won’t be able to stop the Bills offense.

The Bills win this one by a large margin on the prime time stage on Monday night.
