NFL Betting: Week 6 Opening Lines

The Atlanta Falcons and the Houston Texans are the last two unbeaten teams remaining in the National Football League, and they're both listed as home favorites on the opening NFL betting lines for Week 6 of the season.

The Falcons opened as big 10-point favorites over the Raiders at 5Dimes for their matchup on Sunday afternoon, with Atlanta 4-1 ATS to go along with their 5-0 SU mark in 2012. The Raiders have struggled to records of just 1-3 both SU and ATS this year.

The Texans are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS on the season as well, and they're 5-point favorites over the Packers on the opening lines at 5Dimes for their Sunday night contest this week. Green Bay has disappointed at 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS through five weeks.

The biggest home underdog on the opening NFL lines for this week are the Titans, who sit at +7 in Tennessee against the Steelers for Thursday night. The Titans are 1-4 both SU and ATS on the season, while the Steelers are 2-2 SU and 1-3 ATS right now.

The Chiefs/Bucs and Vikings/Redskins games were both held off the board early in the week due to quarterback injuries - both Kansas City's Matt Cassel and Washington's Robert Griffin III suffered concussions over the weekend.
