Week 6 NFL Picks: Early expert predictions, analysis
This might be one of those games. The Los Angeles Chargers have done little to gain our trust, especially early in recent seasons. They started in and in , and they dropped a winnable opener at home against the Chiefs on Sunday. Now ATS bettors are asking them to go across the country and win by at least an eight-point margin?
Our experts are reluctantly on board. So very, very bad. Regarding travel concerns, the good news for Davenport and Co. They start slow, but they travel well, and the Bills look like prey right now.
Buffalo will be starting raw rookie Josh Allen at quarterback. And while Allen has a higher ceiling and is probably a better option than second-year disaster Nathan Peterman, the short-on-accuracy Wyoming product is probably in for a rude awakening against a talented defense that badly punished Peterman in his first career start 10 months ago.
This line might only be 7. New head coach Matt Patricia has ruined the Detroit Lions, who were embarrassed by a supposedly inferior team in their home opener. Garoppolo could stink again, or he could bounce back nicely against a much weaker defense. Gagnon has his doubts about those tells and believes that an experienced Detroit team will at least keep it close in the Bay Area.
But the Rams appeared to be catching fire as their opener against the Oakland Raiders progressed, while the Cardinals were embarrassed nearly as badly as the Bills and Lions. The Redskins are average at best, and they smashed the Cards on their home turf. But consider that plenty of the teams that struggled significantly in their openers last season—the Bengals, Jets, Colts, 49ers, Seahawks, Giants, Saints and Chargers, for example—were pretty much just as bad in Week 2. Los Angeles Gagnon: Los Angeles Sobleski: Los Angeles Consensus: With key new faces on both sides of the ball, the Broncos beat the Seattle Seahawks in their season opener.
They did so despite a so-so performance from new quarterback Case Keenum, who threw three interceptions Sunday but is highly unlikely to make that many mistakes against a soft Oakland Raiders D in Week 2. The Jaguars have never beaten the Patriots in a regular-season game. Prior to last year, nine of the previous 10 meetings between the Giants and the Cowboys were decided by one score, and neither team has been favored by more than six points in any of their last 14 matchups. This meetings are typically toss-ups regardless of the site — the Giants have won five of their last nine in Dallas, while the Cowboys have won four of their last six at MetLife — but rolling the dice on the Cowboys beyond three points seems like quite a risk at the moment.
However, our two highest-scoring game pickers from Week 1 believe oddsmakers have gone too far by making Chicago a three-point favorite against Russell Wilson and his already desperate team. Russell Wilson is another dynamic presence behind center, with Earl Thomas back doing Earl Thomas things to lead the defense.
If the Bears learned from the mistakes they made in the second half of that Packers game, they could be in for a successful home opener. But they remain green figuratively , and with three points in hand, the better bet might be the team that wears green literally.
