It’s hard to believe, but it is already Week 6 and the NFL season is in full swing. bet365 has several valuable team props this week, and I have searched through several of them to find my three best team props picks for the Week 6 NFL odds.
Chicago Bears O/U 19.5 points
I may be slightly biased on this one, but the Chicago Bears have won their last two games without their top two receivers, and now they might be getting them both back against the worst team they’ve played for three weeks. However they are underdogs in Detroit, and have a points total of less than 20 points. Against the Lions poor defense, the Bears should have no problem moving the ball with their undervalued offense. Plus, even if they do start slow and get down early in the game, they have more than enough firepower to play catch up. The Lions are giving up nearly 28 points per game this season, and they’ve done that against some teams that are quite frankly just as bad or worse than Chicago’s. Look for the Bears to get to 20 plus points in this one.
NFL Pick: Bears OVER 19.5 (-125)
Texans vs. Jaguars O/U 3.5 FGs
I took one look at this game and the NFL odds associated with it, and the first thing that popped into my head was, this is a field goal game. Can’t you just see these two teams scoring one touchdown apiece, but the final score is in the teens and low 20s because they each kick four field goals. I might be selling out low on this one because you can also wager on O/U 4.5 FGs, but I am playing it safe looking for the win. The Jaguars have given up the most field goals attempts of any team, and they are tied for the second most made field goals given up. While the Texans aren’t quite that bad, the reason they aren’t worse is because their opponents have already missed five field goals against them, which is by far the most in the league so far through five weeks. The Texans have kicked well at 7/9 so far, while the Jaguars are 8/11 with their own field goal kicking. Take the over here, because at NFL odds of -120, bet365 knows this could end up a kicking game.
NFL Pick: OVER 3.5 FGs (-120)
Patriots vs. Colts O/U 6.5 TDs
This game is going to be fun. With an NFL odds total of close to 55 points at most shops, the final score of this game is either going to be 48-14, or 42-34. Either way, there are going to be tons of touchdowns scored in this one, and as long as Andrew Luck looks like he is good to play this week, over 6.5 TDs may once again be selling low. However, at even money NFL odds of +100 for the over, you have to think the Patriots are good for at least three to four touchdowns, and as long as the Colts are good for the same, this is a great wager to cap off Sunday. The Colts are the team that sold out the Patriots and started all this deflategate stuff, and you best believe the Patriots have been waiting for this one for a long time. Look for big scoring and lots of touchdowns in this one as you place your NFL picks.
NFL Pick: OVER 6.5 TDs (+100)
