NFL Week 6 Opening Line Report
Which team is the biggest underdog in Week 6? We answer that question in our NFL Week 6 Opening Odds Report.
Which team is the Largest Home Underdog?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Jets are both the largest underdog and largest home dog in Week 6. Despite winning three straight games to improve their record to 3-2, Gang Green finds itself as a 9.5-point home dog versus the Patriots on Sunday.
Which Matchup has the Smallest Spread?
As of this writing, there's only one other home underdog in Week 6 and that's the Cardinals, who host the Buccaneers at 4:05PM ET on Sunday. This game also features the smallest spread on the board at 2 points. After the game opened as a pick'em, bettors bought Tampa Bay and drove the line up to 2, where it is right now. Even though the Bucs are coming off a loss last week to the Patriots at home, bettors clearly see more fight in them than the Cardinals, who were stomped in Philadelphia as a 6.5-point underdog on Sunday.
Who is the Biggest Favorite in Week 6?
There are several teams that are double-digit favorites in Week 6, including the Falcons, who are 10.5-point home favorites versus the Dolphins on Sunday. The Texans are also 10.5-point home favorites versus the winless Browns, while the Broncos are 10.5-point home favorites against the 0-5 Giants. The Redskins are the other double-digit favorite, as Washington is -10 versus the 0-5 49ers, who have lost in overtime the last two weeks.
What is the Lowest Over/Under?
As of this writing, the lowest total is in Denver where the Giants-Broncos over/under is sitting at 41 points. New York might not score after losing receivers Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Sterling Shepard to injuries in Week 5. Denver also owns one of the best defenses in the league, so good luck, Giants.
What is the largest over/under?
The potential shootout in Week 6 is in New Orleans, where the Saints host the Lions as a 3.5-point favorite. The total is sitting at 51, which is the only over/under in Week 6 with the number sitting in the 50s. New Orleans had a bye last week after beating the Dolphins in London, while the Lions fell to the Panthers at home as a 2-point favorite.
