NFL Week 6 Betting Lines
Thursday night will offer plenty of drama and intrigue to open Week 6 with the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the defending Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Jalen Hurts has been given the ultimate vote of confidence by the Eagles as starting quarterback by Carson Wentz departing for the Indianapolis Colts. What is most interesting about this development is that Hurts has earned little in the way of “faith” from the NFL “experts.” In this Thursday night matchup, Hurts and the Eagles will be going up against the GOAT of quarterbacks, Tom Brady. Could this be a trap for the Bucs? Tampa Bay is now the target of every opponent that they face.
BYE WEEK: Atlanta, New Orleans, New York Jets, San Francisco
The Miami Dolphins are among the most interesting teams on the board this season. It begins with Tua Tagovailoa starting the season as the number one quarterback after successfully navigating through his 2020 rookie campaign. Tua is thrilled to have his former Alabama teammate Jaylen Waddle arrive as the first pick for the Dolphins in the 2021 NFL Draft. Many NFL observers believe that Waddle was the most desirable receiver in the draft because of his game-breaking ability to blow games wide open. Tua and the Fish will be going up against Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars. One of the big questions for this game at Jacksonville will be the mental health and status of Jaguars rookie head coach Urban Meyer. Meyer had to quit college football because of the pressure and his inability to handle losing. Now he takes over one of the worst teams in the NFL and will likely have already suffered multiple losses when this game kicks off.
The oldest rivalry in the NFL will be renewed as the Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers. The possibilities for this game and where these teams will be standing when it is played are endless. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be going up against either top draft pick Justin Fields or discredited veteran Mitch Trubisky.
Speaking of ancient rivalries, the Las Vegas Raiders and Denver Broncos have been fighting it out in the same division since 1960 and the founding of the American Football League. Denver boasts one of the best defenses in the NFL but remains disjointed on offense where Drew Lock may not be wanted but is the best of bad alternatives.
NBC Sunday Night Football gets another marquee showcase with the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Seattle Seahawks. Pittsburgh fans are excited about first round draft pick Najee Harris. Since the departure of LeVeon Bell, the Steelers have been searching for a credible workhorse running back that can keep the heat off of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Harris fills the void and has the Steelers dreaming of Super Sunday. The now-balanced Steelers attack will provide a stern test to the questionable Seattle defense that is yet to develop into a championship caliber unit.
The Monday Night Football matchup on ESPN is a potential 2021 AFC Playoffs preview between the Tennessee Titans and the visiting Buffalo Bills. Tennessee is coming off consecutive playoff campaigns but was noticeably down a notch from their 2019 team, which made the AFC Championship Game. However, Buffalo emerged last year as a top-tier NFL championship favorite. The betting line should be an honest one, and this is a potential trap game for the Bills.
