NFL Week 6 - Football Sports Betting

New York Giants +3 (EVEN) over New Orleans Saints

This is the match up of the week, and I expect both teams to be focused. This will also be the first real test for both these teams. The Giants have a cupcake schedule so far, with their only real challenge coming from Dallas. They easily won that game. The Saints beat the Jets with a rookie QB and Philly without McNabb. Two good, but untested teams... I'm taking the points. Expect the Giants to be able to get it done on both sides of the ball, and the Saints to have a little trouble against a good defense (like the problems they had vs the Jets).

Atlanta Falcons -3½ (+105) over Chicago Bears

Atlanta surprised me last week. Their offense is complete and their defensive play was better than expected. The Bears are coming off a bye, and will be ready to fight, but their defense just isn't as good as it was in the past. They will need their offense to pick up the slack, and I don't see that happening.

St. Louis Rams +10 (-120) over Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jags have the better record, but they haven't had a quality win yet this year. In fact they get their asses kicked by any decent team. Only 1 of their 2 wins came by 10 points or more. The Rams on the other hand are winless verse a much tougher schedule. I don't expect them to win this week, but 10 points are too many.

I might be back with more later. I also have a strong lean for Monday Night. Still deciding on a play...
