NFL Week 6 Spreads, Money Lines and Totals
One of the oldest and best rivalries in pro football kicks off Week 6 betting action. In 1960, the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs were born as American Football League charter members. They have shared the same division ever since that berth. The Chiefs have not just been the Broncos’ daddy in recent years. Instead, it has been much worse. In fact, the last time this rivalry was so one-sided was in the original decade of its existence.
There is no reason to believe the Broncos are ready to unseat the defending Super Bowl champion Chiefs. Denver indeed has a new head coach, Sean Payton. Payton won a Super Bowl as head coach of the New Orleans Saints and has one of the head coaching records over the past generation. But it is true that Payton was suspended as Saints coach for running bounties. And that his only Super Bowl appearance was 13 years ago.
Payton is an offensive mastermind and QB guru that rode the greatness of futures Hall of Famer Drew Brees. Denver does not boast Drew Brees. Instead, they have Russell Wilson, who looks well past his prime. Wilson was acquired one year ago with a hero’s welcome. But Wilson flopped miserably, alienated teammates, and had his commitment questioned.
Denver mortgaged its future for Wilson and is now on tilt. Thus, They needed a credible coach to try for an unlikely turnaround.

NFL Week 6 Schedule
Bye Week Teams: Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers
Speaking of charter AFL members, the Las Vegas Raiders will host the New England Patriots in the late Sunday afternoon window. Last year the Raiders absurdly beat the Patriots. Vegas’s Chandler Jones returned a stupid lateral by New England’s Rhamondre Stevenson for a 48-yard touchdown. Although Patriots coach Bill Belichick vowed his team drills for such scenarios, the fact that it happened is taken by many as a sign that the Hoodie is losing his edge without Tom Brady.
NBC Sunday Night Football is a potential Super Bowl preview. The Buffalo Bills will host the New York Giants. The G-Men will attempt to prove that their 2022 resurgence was no fluke. In like manner, Giants QB Daniel Jones has a new contract and better image following years of ridicule and doubt.
Buffalo QB Josh Allen could run for mayor and win in a landslide. But it is also true that the Bills failed to win the Super Bowl in the 2022 campaign they were picked to do so. Buffalo was exposed in their home playoff loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. But the Bills Mafia has nothing else to live for and will be in full force for this one.
ESPN Monday Night Football offers an outstanding interconference matchup. Certainly, seeing either team in the Super Bowl would not surprise anyone. But Dallas fans and gamblers are increasingly concerned about the ability of Dak Prescott to deliver football’s biggest prize. Head coach Mike McCarthy has taken over play-calling in a win-or-else season.
The Los Angeles Chargers were one of the NFL’s biggest disappointments in 2022. It is true that the Chargers made the playoffs. But their 31-30 playoff loss at the Jacksonville Jaguars was a catastrophe. Especially when you consider that the Jags blew a 27-0 lead. Head coach Brandon Stanley was barely known and under little heat until the debacle. Staley barely escaped with his job and is in the hottest seat in the NFL.
