NFL Week 6 Betting Primer

Another week of NFL action is upon us and it's a great week for bettors to clean up. All you need is the tools to do it, and it just so has it that I've compiled a list of gold nuggets for every Week 6 game.

Underdogs continue to cash in as they've come out on top in four of the five weeks so far, going 40-33-4 ATS on the season. Betting the OVER has been even more profitable, as it's gone 42-33-2. I do expect those numbers to even out a bit and this could be the week.

So let's get after it, let's chase that paper and let's prove to our psychiatrists that they've been wrong about us the whole time. Enjoy Week 6!
