Full list of Week 6 straight-up picks with confidence levels

The NFL returns for Week 6 and we’ve got a look at who we think will win each game taking place this week, and at what level of confidence.

The NFL is back for Week 6, and we don’t have our usual Thursday Night Football game to open the week. The Bills and Chiefs were scheduled for the prime time affair, but Covid-19 rescheduling now has them playing Monday evening.

That being said, it’s never too early to start picking winners. Each Thursday, I put together a list of straight up picks for the weekly schedule. I’ll have picks against the spread over the weekend, but this is a chance to just pick winners and losers. This year though, I’ve changed up the approach. Instead of simply picking winners and losers, I’m also grouping the picks by confidence — high confidence, medium confidence, low confidence, no confidence.

I had a decent bounceback last week, going 9-5. Below I’ve posted all my picks, with my record in that confidence level in parenthesis. A game with three asterisks (***) after it indicate a game where I’m picking the betting underdog to get the win.

High confidence (22-5)

Patriots over Broncos
Ravens over Eagles
Dolphins over Jets

Medium confidence (15-8)

Titans over Texans
Giants over Washington
Vikings over Falcons
Colts over Bengals

Low confidence (6-8)

Browns over Steelers***
Lions over Jaguars
Panthers over Bears
Buccaneers over Packers***
Rams over 49ers

No confidence (4-2)

Bills over Chiefs***
Cowboys over Cardinals***
