NFL Week 6 picks: The weekend of underdogs

New, comments

A 27-point line seems more like a novelty bet than anything. Not buyin' it. Go Jags, cover that college-like spread.

Scott Kane-USA TODAY Sports

The Broncos' cartoonish -27 over Jacksonville isn't even the only double-digit spread this week.

San Francisco is -11 over Arizona and Seattle is -14 over Tennessee. These in turn attract the underdog bets. And I'm feeling kind of underdogish today. Underdogish...bullish even...including the Steelers' return to the win column along with taking the three points they're getting against the Jets.

A clunker of a match-up on paper leads off the week, as does my underdog covering rampage.

New York Giants (+8) over CHICAGO

Philadelphia (+2) over TAMPA BAY

Baltimore (+3) over GREEN BAY
