NFL Week 6 Opening Line Report

We’re five weeks into the NFL season and here’s an early look at Week 6 odds. The table below shows the look ahead lines from April via CG Technology, and we’ve compared them to the opening and current odds at Pinnacle.

Matchup Current (Oct 13) Opener (Oct 11) Lookahead (April 25)
ATL at NO ATL -3 ATL -3 NO -3.5
BAL at SF BAL -2 BAL -2.5 SF -2
CAR at SEA SEA -5.5 SEA -7 SEA -8
NE at IND NE -7 NE -7.5 IND -1
HOU at JAX Pick 'Em HOU -2 HOU -3.5
MIA at TEN TEN -2.5 TEN -2.5 MIA -3
CIN at BUF BUF -1 CIN -3 BUF -1
WAS at NYJ NYJ -5.5 NYJ -6 NYJ -2
DEN at CLE DEN -4.5 DEN -4 DEN -4.5
ARI at PIT ARI -3 ARI -3 PIT -2.5
CHI at DET DET -3.5 DET -3 DET -5
SD at GB GB -10 GB -10 GB -5.5
KC at MIN MIN -3.5 MIN -3.5 MIN -1
NYG at PHI PHI -3.5 PHI -3.5 PHI -4

It’s interesting to see that New Orleans was actually listed as a 3.5-point favorite over the summer before opening as a 3-point underdog in their matchup with Atlanta. In early betting, the Saints are receiving just 16% of spread bets which could make them a fit for our 80/20 betting rule.

The Colts opened as 7-point home underdogs against the Patriots despite being listed as a 1-point favorites over the summer. That 8-point swing is easily the most of any Week 6 game.

The Bills were listed at -1 over the summer and also opened at -1 at Pinnacle, however, when it was announced that Tyrod Taylor was questionable with an ankle injury Buffalo dropped from -1 to +3. EJ Manuel is expected to start if Taylor is unable to play.

These numbers are subject to change throughout the week, so bettors should be sure to bookmark our free NFL odds page for updates lines, betting trends, injuries, futures and more.
