Redskins-Eagles among most popular options

More than a month into the NFL season, several clear favorites have captured the attention of the betting public. Who’s poised to come up big this afternoon?

View Public Betting Report for Week 6

After walloping hapless Cleveland last weekend, Tom Brady and the Pats host the Bengals at 1 p.m. ET. Not surprisingly, the reigning AFC East champs are supported by 76 percent of the general population. The venue of Gillette Stadium obviously matters here, as does the fact that Cincinnati continues to play some shockingly inconsistent football. While A.J. Green’s performing as well as ever, Marvin Lewis’ ground game seems downright inept. New England isn’t likely to allow Jeremy Hill or Giovani Bernard much room to roam, either.

The Pats actually find themselves with company today in terms of being fawned over by the people. Seventy-five percent of wagers go the way of the Steelers as they prepare to visit Miami. Online sports book BetDSI opened Pittsburgh as a 7.5-point favorite over the struggling Dolphins, and deservedly so. Ben Roethlisberger has thrown for 680 yards and nine touchdowns in the past two contests alone. In addition, Le’Veon Bell looks razor-sharp following an early suspension for violating the league’s substance-abuse policy. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Adam Gase’s team required overtime to defeat the Browns in Week 3. Enough said.

Speaking of tight affairs, Philadelphia’s trying to bounce back from a 24-23 loss to Detroit. Sixty-five percent of patrons endorse Carson Wentz & Co. to accomplish precisely that vs. Washington. The Eagles’ rookie quarterback boasts 1,007 yards and seven scores through his first four professional starts. Conversely, Kirk Cousins can’t quite locate the form that helped guide the Redskins to a playoff berth in 2015. With one of the Michigan State product’s preferred targets, Jordan Reed, on the bench because of concussion symptoms, expect things to spiral out of control in the nation’s capital.

The day’s trendy pick: Jacksonville, which fetches support from 58 percent of the crowd entering Soldier Field. Chicago appears destined for an utterly abysmal campaign, whereas the Jaguars feel buoyed by their recent London triumph over Indianapolis. Signal-caller Blake Bortles still needs a turnover-free tilt, and that’s probably bound to occur against John Fox’s bunch. Chicago’s currently without its primary QB (Jay Cutler), leading rusher (Jeremy Langford) and No. 2 receiver (Kevin White). Complicating the scenario further, top wideout Alshon Jeffrey keeps battling a knee problem.
