Week 6 Games NFL Betting Fans Can’t Miss!!!
NFL betting fans have more than one reason to focus their attention on the coming round of pro football action. Week 6 brings numerous games offering great opportunities to cash in, but there’s a selected list of matchups that have the potential to shape the league’s hierarchy. So here we go!
Carolina Panthers (4-0) at Seattle Seahawks (2-3)
Date/Time: Sunday, Saturday, October 18th 4:05 p.m. ET (Fox)
CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington
Odds: Panthers -6½-115, Game Total 41 o/u -110
From all the teams expected to endure an undefeated run at the beginning of the season, the Carolina Panthers are by far the biggest surprise. Against all odds, the Panthers are undefeated right now, but a huge factor for the team’s success has been their schedule. They have beat Jaguars, Texans, Saints or Bucs, but considering that these four teams have a combined record of 5-15 on the season, the feat isn’t that impressive.
Things will be way different for Cam Newton and company when they land on hostile territory to face Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. Not only is the Seahawks quarterback 24-2 in 26 career starts at home, but he also has a 6-0 regular season record against NFC South foes.
Game Prediction: This will be definitely a game with a low scoring match. In their last three regular season games, all Seahawks wins, the score has gone under (13-9, 12-7, 16-9). I’m sure that Seattle has enough talent to spoil Carolina’s perfect run, but expect the Seahawks to win by a 5-7 point margin.
NY Giants (3-2) at Philadelphia Eagles (2-3)
Date/Time: Monday, October 19th, 8:30 p.m. ET (ESPN)
MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey
Odds: Eagles -4-110, Game Total 50, o/u -110
The Philadelphia Eagles bounced back from a frustrating skid with a home victory over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, improving to 2-3 and making clear that they can’t be considered dead yet. The Eagles are scheduled to play the Giants on a Monday Night Game that has the potential to cement any of these divisional foes in the leading position. If Philly beats the Giants, it could be the Eagles who stand on top of the division. If that actually happens, then both Eagles and the Giants will be 3-3 and tied with a division game record of 1-2.
Game Prediction: The Eagles don’t have an easy task ahead, but even when the team hasn’t really shinned this season, they have the talent to stop Manning’s offense. They will need to make some improvements and cut the number of errors committed by their QB Sam Bradford. If Bradford is able to handle the pressure and skip stupid mistakes like the two interceptions he threw against the Saints, then I think the Eagles can easily claim an easy victory on the road and take the first place in their division.
Arizona Cardinals (4-1) at Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2)
Date/Time: Sunday, October 18th, 1 p.m. ET (Fox)
Heinz Field, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Game Odds: Arizona Cardinals -3-125, Game Total 44, o/u -110
The Cardinals were able to bounce back from their heartbreaking Week 4 loss to St. Louis by banging the Detroit Lions, 42-17, at the Ford Field last Sunday. They will now get ready to visit the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field. The Steelers are coming off a 24-20 road victory against the San Diego Chargers on Monday night. That game had QB Michael Vick and Le’Veon Bell coming through on the final drive to lead their team to a last minute win over the Bolts. On top of the confidence boosting win, Pittsburgh has also played its best at home in October, going 4-0-1 against the spread in the past five games played in October.
Game Prediction: This will be toughest road game to date for the Arizona Cardinals, who will look to surprise the Steelers at home and notch a valuable victory in hostile territory. But on the other hand, the Steelers are likely to pressure Arizona’s offense and make quarterback Carson Palmer turn the ball. If their defensive strategy succeeds, then expect Pittsburgh to win the game and cover the spread.
