The Kansas City Chiefs are the only unbeaten team in the NFL and they face a tough assignment against the Pittsburgh Steelers in what is easily the biggest game of the weekend.
Our positive NFL betting results continued last weekend, so you don’t want to miss out on the 2017 NFL Week 6 tips that can be found below!
BALTIMORE RAVENS VS CHICAGO BEARS
The Baltimore Ravens recorded an upset win over the Oakland Raiders last weekend and they will start this clash as clear favourites. Baltimore have struggled for consistency during the NFL season to date, but their record at home has been strong.
The Ravens have won their past five games as home favourites and they are 4-1 against the line in this scenario.
Chicago were a touch unlucky in their loss to the Minnesota Vikings and Mitch Trubisky did show some potential in his NFL debut.
The Bears have lost their past seven games on the road and they are a poor 2-5 against the line when playing away from home.
This is a game that Baltimore should be able to win comfortably and they can cover the line of six points.
MINNESOTA VIKINGS VS GREEN BAY PACKERS
The Green Bay Packers came from behind to beat the Dallas Cowboys last weekend and they can extend their lead on top of the NFC North with a win over the Minnesota Vikings.
Aaron Rodgers showed his greatness once again in the final drive against the Cowboys and as long as he is firing the Packers can beat anybody in the NFL.
Green Bay have won two of their past three games as away favourites, but they are only 1-2 against the line in this scenario.
It wasn’t pretty at times, but Minnesota were eventually able to come away with the win over the Chicago Bears.
The Vikings will be without QB Sam Bradford and there star wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Too much to overcome and the Packers represent great value.
WASHINGTON REDSKINS VS SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
The Redskins are one of the shortest-priced favourites in the NFL this weekend.
Washington went down to the Kansas City Chiefs before the bye, but they were not disgraced and they remain genuine contenders in what is a fairly open NFC East.
The Redskins have won only two of their past four games as home favourites and they have been tough to trust as the punter’s elect.
The San Francisco 49ers have won their past four games against the Washington Redskins, but they are yet to win a game this season after they suffered their second overtime loss on the trot against the Indianapolis Colts last weekend.
They have won only one of their past eight games as away underdogs, but they are 5-3 against the line in this scenario.
There is not as much between these teams as the current betting market suggests and the 49ers can cover the line with the big start.
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS VS DETROIT LIONS
These two teams have played out some genuine shootouts in recent seasons and it is the New Orleans Saints that will start this clash as favourites.
New Orleans went into the bye on the back of their best defensive effort in several years – they kept the Miami Dolphins scoreless – and if they can continue to play at that level are genuine Playoff contenders. However it was Jay Cutler.
The Saints have won three of their past five games as home favourites for a small loss, but they have covered the line in each of those wins.
The Detroit Lions suffered a narrow defeat at the hands of the Carolina Panthers last weekend, but they will take confidence from the fact that they have won their past three games against the Saints.
Detroit have won four of their past eight games as away underdogs and winning on the road has not been an issue for this franchise.
New Orleans are well and truly under the odds at their current price and Detroit are one of the best betting plays of the weekend.
ATLANTA FALCONS VS MIAMI DOLPHINS
The Atlanta Falcons go into this clash with the Miami Dolphins as dominant favourites.
Atlanta went into the bye on the back of a shock loss at the hands of the Buffalo Bills and this is a crucial game for the defending NFC Champions.
The Falcons have won seven of their past ten games as home favourites, but they are only 5-5 against the line in this scenario.
Miami bounced back from their poor effort against the New Orleans Saints to beat the Tennessee Titans and this will be a big test for the side that was expected to be an NFL Playoffs contender.
The Dolphins have won four of their past six games as away underdogs for a big profit and an upset win is not out of the question. However the recent form of Quarterback Jay Cutler is just too much for me to overlook.
No Bet – Falcons Win
HOUSTON TEXANS VS CLEVELAND BROWNS
The Cleveland Browns are set to make a quarterback change and it is Kevin Hogan that will start under centre this weekend.
The market does not believe that it will make much of a difference to the chances of the Browns and they will go into this clash as clear underdogs.
Cleveland suffered a narrow loss at the hands of the New York Jets and they look unlikely to get their first win of the season against the Houston Texans.
The Browns have lost their past seven games away from home and they are 2-5 against the line on the road.
Houston were not disgraced against the Kansas City Chiefs, but they suffered a pair of costly losses in the form of JJ Watt and Whitney Mercilu.
Their offence continues to show positive signs – although it will be interesting to see how the entire rosters responds to the loss of their leader Watt.
This is a game that Houston should win, but there is no value at their current price.
No Bet – Texans Win
NEW YORK JETS VS NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
The New England Patriots have won five of their past six games against the New York Jets and they will start this clash with their rivals as clear favourites.
New England didn’t play particularly well against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but they were still able to come away with the victory and their defence produced an improved performance.
The Patriots have now won their past nine games as away favourites and their record against the line in that scenario is an incredibly impressive 8-1.
New York have won three games on the trot and there is no doubt that they have already surpassed expectations this season.
However, this is a much tougher assignment and last time they played the Patriots they lost by 38 points.
New York have won three of their past six games as home underdogs for a profit and they are 4-2 against the line in this scenario.
ARIZONA CARDINALS VS TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
The Arizona Cardinals may have the home field advantage, but it is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that will start this clash as clear favourites.
Tampa Bay were their own worst enemy in their loss against the New England Patriots and that is definitely a win that got away.
The Buccaneers haven’t been overly impressive away from home in recent seasons and they lost their only game as away underdogs so far this season.
Arizona produced their worst performance of the season to date to suffer a heavy defeat at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles and they have big issues on both sides of the ball.
The Cardinals have won four of their past seven games at home, but they are a team that is tough to have any faith in at the moment.
This is another game that the market looks to have got just about spot-on.
No Bet – Cardinals Win
JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS VS LOS ANGELES RAMS
The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Los Angeles Rams have been two of the biggest surprise packages in the NFL this season and they both head into this clash with winning records.
Jacksonville were excellent against the Pittsburgh Steelers last weekend and they will start this clash as narrow favourites.
The Jaguars have lost their past three games as the punter’s elect and they are a team that I am generally keen to oppose in front of their home fans.
Los Angeles went down to Seattle last weekend, but they still produced a tough effort and there is no doubt that they have made big strides in 2017.
The Rams have still won only one of their past five games as away underdogs and their record against the line is no better.
The betting market that does stand out in this clash is the Over in Total Points betting.
Overs has saluted in six of the past seven home games played by the Jaguars and has also been a profitable betting play in Rams fixtures.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS VS PITTSBURGH STEELERS
The Kansas City Chiefs are favourites to extend their record to 6-0 when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium this weekend.
Kansas City continued their impressive start to the season with a high-scoring win over the Houston Texans and they continue to play some excellent football.
The Chiefs have won six of their past nine games as home favourites, but they are only 4-1-4 against the line in this scenario.
Pittsburgh suffered a shock loss at the hands of the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger produced one of the worst performances of his career.
The Steelers surely can’t play that poorly again and they have won one of their two games as away underdogs over the past 12 months.
Kansas City have to lose eventually and it could happen at the hands of the Steelers this weekend. Esepcially with a question mark of Tight End Travis kelce.
DENVER BRONCOS VS NEW YORK GIANTS
Things have gone from bad to worse for the New York Giants.
New York are yet to win a game in the NFL this season and getting that maiden win will be even tougher now that Odell Beckham has been ruled out after breaking his ankle.
The Giants have now won only one of their past seven games as away underdogs and they are 3-4 against the line in this scenario.
The Denver Broncos went into the bye with a narrow win over the Oakland Raiders and they need to win this clash in order to stay in touch with the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.
Denver have won five of their past six games as home favourites and they are 4-1-1 against the line in this scenario.
Betting against the Giants has been a profitable move all season long and there is no reason to change that this weekend.
