NFL Week 6 Betting Lines
This is the first week where there will be four teams on bye during the 2020 season, and three of the four teams made the postseason last year. New England, New Orleans, and Seattle will join Las Vegas in enjoying this weekend from their couches, but there are a few very intriguing games even though we won’t have some of last year’s best teams. Two of the best games feature former division rivals as Tampa Bay hosts Green Bay and Dallas hosts Arizona.
NFL Week 6 Schedule & Lines
BYE WEEK: Las Vegas Raiders, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, Seattle Seahawks
Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills will be in primetime for the first of four times this season in the first game of Week 6. They will almost certainly be underdogs to the Kansas City Chiefs provided Patrick Mahomes is playing, and they are hoping that Stefon Diggs will help this offense become more explosive. Buffalo will still be run-first with Allen, Devin Singletary, and Zack Moss all receiving significant carries, and Sean McDermott will probably try to run as often as he can against the most dangerous offense in the NFL.
Myles Garrett sent everyone into a tizzy when he tried to hit Mason Rudolph with his own helmet last season. Garrett was rightly suspended for the rest of the 2019 campaign, but his indefinite suspension has been lifted and he will be eager to get another crack at the Pittsburgh Steelers. Rudolph will only be on the field if there’s an injury to Ben Roethlisberger, but there will be plenty of other Pittsburgh players that will look to take a crack at the star defensive end. That will add another layer of intrigue to one of the most heated rivalries in the NFL.
Will Tua Tagovailoa be ready to start by this point of the season? Only time will tell. Miami got the quarterback it longed for with the Alabama standout, but injuries he suffered last year make it very unlikely he will play in the first month of the season. Many observers are calling for Tagovailoa to sit out the entire season in order to ensure he is healthy, but if he is 100 percent and looks well in practice, he could supplant Ryan Fitzpatrick.
The last game to kick off on Sunday afternoon will pit Tampa Bay against Green Bay. The Buccaneers are the darlings of the offseason after signing Tom Brady, and that acquisition catapulted them to become one of the favorites in the NFC even though they haven’t made the postseason in over a decade. Meanwhile, everyone seems to be down on the Packers even though Green Bay went 13-3 last year. Seven NFC teams have better odds to win the NFC than the Packers even though Green Bay made the NFC Championship Game last season.
San Francisco will host its third straight home game when the Los Angeles Rams come to town for Sunday Night Football. The 49ers knocked off the Rams in both meetings last year, but Jared Goff was able to move the ball on this secondary in the second game as both Robert Woods and Tyler Higbee had 100-yard games. The defensive backs are the weak links on this defense, so Sean McVay will want to attack them once more.
The Cardinals might be one of the most improved teams in 2020. Arizona showed a lot of promise in Kyler Murray’s first season, and the Rookie of the Year now has a playmaking receiver in Deandre Hopkins. Isaiah Simmons is one of the most exciting young defenders we’ve seen in a while because of his versatility, and he could be deployed in really interesting ways against the Dallas Cowboys.
