NFL picks against the spread for every game in Week 6

We’re back for another week of picks against the spread. Here’s my full list of Week 6 picks.

Welcome back for Week 6 of the 2020 NFL season. There were some Covid-19 concerns, but coming out of Saturday evening, it would appear we won’t have any coronavirus related delays on Sunday. That could easily change in the morning, but fingers crossed we get the normal slate of games on Sunday and Monday.

We did not have Thursday Night Football this week due to some schedule maneuvering last week. Chiefs-Bills has been moved to Monday evening, while the rest of the schedule remains as planned.

Last week, I went 7-7 with my picks, and 4-1 with my five best bets of the weekend. It moves me to 41-35-1 on total picks and 18-7 on my best bets. A year ago, I went 131-117-4, finishing with a 52.78 win percentage. That’s barely turning a profit, but for a season’s worth of picks, that’s not too bad. I did not track my best bet percentage over the course of the season, but will make sure to do that this year.

I’m going to pick my five “best bets” each week, similar to what you might use in the DraftKings Pro Football Pick ‘Em National Championship. Lines are moving so some of the lines below will be different from what you see on game day. Look for value where you can!

In the meantime, here are my five picks of choice for this weekend:

Lions (-3.5) over Jaguars
Vikings (-4) over Falcons
Ravens (-7.5) over Eagles
Cowboys (+1.5) over Cardinals
Giants (-3) over Washington

Here’s my full list of picks for Week 6.

Bears @ Panthers (-1.5) — Panthers
Lions @ Jaguars (+3.5) — Lions
Falcons @ Vikings (-4) — Vikings
Texans @ Titans (-3.5) — Titans
Washington @ Giants (-3) — Giants
Browns @ Steelers (-3.5) — Browns
Ravens @ Eagles (+7.5) — Ravens
Bengals @ Colts (-7.5) — Bengals
