It's NFL week 6 and you know what that means; the best NFL value picks that free money can buy? But seriously folks, let's get down to business and belt out some winning bets and have a profitable day.

 

San Diego Chargers (4-1) vs. Oakland Raiders (0-4)
The Chargers have looked as good as we've seen them in a long time as they destroyed the New York Jets last week.

This week, they get anther cupcake in the winless Raiders. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr has shown glimpses of ability, but it will take him a while to be a legitimate quarterback in this league. Phillip Rivers on the the hand, is the only quarterback drafted in the "Big 3" with Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger to not have a Super Bowl title, but he's been very effective as of late and this might be hitting his peak even at 33 years of age. San Diego has great depth at the wide receiver position and Rivers has shown the ability to deliver the football on time.

On the season, Rivers is completing 70.3% of his passes for 1443 yards with 12 TD's and 2 INT. Even at home, Oakland doesn't stand a chance against the Chargers who have covered the spread in 10 out of their last 11 games.

NFL Pick: San Diego -7

Denver Broncos (3-1) vs. New York Jets (1-4)
I could live to regret this pick, therefore you immediately know where I'm going. Peyton Manning is coming off of the best passing game (yardage-wise) in his illustrious career in a 41-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals. Manning threw for 479 yards with 4 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Montee Ball got injured in that game and Ronnie Hillman filled in admirably at the running back position. The Jets on the other hand, are coming off of one of the worst performances that I've seen in at least 20 years. Geno Smith and the Jets offense couldn't get anything going against the San Diego Chargers. Michael Vick came in and looked equally as bad.

After the game, Vick said that he wasn't prepared for the game....ouch. Rex Ryan's job is on the line and New York will be playing in front of a hostile crowd at MetLife Stadium. I look for the Jets to be motivated in this spot. They have some talent and Eric Decker could be playing. This is a very inconsistent team and I'm going to give them a pass for last week. This is also a must win situation for New York, who faces an incredibly tough schedule. Take the Jets and a ton of points at home.

NFL Pick:  Jets +10 -115

Dallas Cowboys (4-1) vs. Seattle Seahawks (3-1)
"How About Them Cowboys"
Owner, Jerry Jones, must be ready for a heart attack because this is as good as Dallas has looked in a very long time. That said, the Cowboys face a huge test against "Beast mode" a.k.a Marshawn Lynch, Russell Wilson, and the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle.

Lynch excels at home and Russell Wilson is proving that his athleticism and on the field I.Q, are second to none. Washington and Kirk Cousins tried to give the Seahawks some resistance last week, but in the end, Seattle was just too tough a football team.

The Cowboys have their own runner in DeMarco Murray and he's having an MVP-like season. Murray has rushed for over 100 yards in every game this season and has looked unstoppable. This will be a close game. Seattle is the betting favorite by 8.5 points due to respect as the champs and home field advantage. Dallas doesn't need 8.5 points to cover this game as they are a much improved football team, Take the points.

NFL Pick: Dallas +8.5

Other Leans
Giants +2.5 Over Philadelphia
New York's offense has hit their stride and won 3 straight games after an 0-2 start. Rookie Odell Beckham Jr. looks like the real deal.

Green Bay -2.5 Over Miami
This line is a joke. Until the Fins get Knowshon Moreno back from injury, they're a below average football. Today, they face possibly the best quarterback in the NFL in Aaron Rodgers and this is a game that the Packers should win easily. The spread is very low because the Pack is on the road. Look for a good game from Eddie Lacy. For your NFL picks be advised the Packers will win easily.
