The NFL kicks off Week 6 of its schedule with the New Orleans Saints hosting the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday Night Football. The Falcons are a three-point favorite, marking the first time they have been a road favorite in this series since 2012 according to the OddsShark NFL Database.
Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones is dealing with a hamstring injury, and while he is expected to play, his status will remain a question.
The biggest line of the week is at Lambeau Field, where the Green Bay Packers are an 11.5-point home favorite against the San Diego Chargers at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. The Chargers are 1-4 ATS this season, while the Packers are unbeaten SU and ATS. The Chargers continue to deal with numerous injuries to their offensive line.
The New England Patriots have the next biggest line against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football. The Patriots are a nine-point road favorite. The status of Andrew Luck is unknown, but he says he practiced without limitations early in the week. The Patriots have won six straight against the Colts, covering the spread in four of them.
The closest line in Week 6 features the Jacksonville Jaguars hosting the Houston Texans. The game opened as a pick ‘em, but some sportsbooks have moved the Texans into one-point favorite status.
There are two other lines under a field goal. The Tennessee Titans are a 2.5-point home favorite against the Miami Dolphins. The Titans have lost five straight home games, and are 2-13-1 ATS in their last 16 home games.
The San Francisco 49ers are a 2.5-point home underdog to the Baltimore Ravens. The 49ers are 1-6 ATS in their last seven home games, while the Ravens are 2-3-1 ATS in their last six road games.
The Cincinnati Bengals opened as a one-point favorite against the Buffalo Bills, but the sportsbooks are moving that line. It has climbed to 3.5 points, and could move higher with word that Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor might not play due to a sprained knee.
