Who is ready to make some money with my best bets? Summer is over and the grind of the NFL season is here! We are seeing some teams separate themselves from the pack, but this year continues to be unpredictable. We live in a world where the Giants and Jets both have a better record than the defending Super Bowl Champion Rams! This is what makes the NFL so great. Nobody can truly predict what will happen week to week. I’m here to try to prove that theory wrong and give you my 3 best bets for Week 6 so we can make some money! Here we go.
1) Dolphins +3 (-110)
This is one of my favorite bets of the season! I don’t understand why the Vikings are 3 point favorites on the road vs a good team. I think their 4-1 record has people thinking too highly of this Vikings team. They had to squeak out close wins vs the Bears and Lions. They haven’t looked that impressive to me. I thought they would be better than what I’ve seen.Cousins is 21 for 44 vs the blitz this season for 185 yards, 2 TD’s and 2 INT’s. Those are not good numbers and this Dolphins team likes to blitz and put pressure on opposing QB’s!
Bridgewater has cleared concussion protocols, but it sounds like they will keep him out 1 more week to be safe after what happened with Tua. That doesn’t scare me away from this bet. McDaniel knows how to put his players in the best position and get the ball to his playmakers on the outside. The Vikings are also not good away from home or on grass. The heat and humidity in Miami will be tough for them to handle (Ask the Bills). At worst, this should be a Pick ’em so lock the Dolphins +3 in as one of my best bets for Week 6.
2) Colts TT Under 21.5 (-110)
This Colts team is 5-0 to their Team Total Under so why would I want to step in front of that? Let’s ride the Under train. The Colts have scored 20, 0, 20, 17, and 12 in their 5 games this season so they have never gone over this 21.5 point total yet. They now go against a Jaguars team that held this Colts offense to 0 a few weeks ago. At -110, these are great odds for something that the Colts have never done all season.
This offensive line for the Colts has taken a step back and Jonathan Taylor is questionable to play this weekend. When you pair those two things with an aging QB who looks like he is pretty close to retirement, it all points to a TT under! I dont even care if the Jaguars offense struggles like they have been lately. In fact, I prefer it to keep this a grind it out defensive type game. Let’s lock it in as one of my best bets!
3) Over 43.5 Browns/Patriots (-110)
This total is too low for two defenses that have a hard time defending the run. The Chargers were the worst rush offense in the league going into last weekend and all Ekeler did was carry it 16 times for 178 yards vs this Browns defense. Cleveland gives up 5.32 yards/carry which is 3rd worst in the league.
On the flip side, this Browns offense is making it into the opponent’s red zone on 45% of their drives! That is 2nd in the league so they have no problem moving the ball and the reason is their running game. Chubb is having another great year and this Patriots team is in the bottom 15 in regards to rush defense. This game should have plenty of points as most Browns games do. I don’t care who the QB is for the Patriots this weekend. Lock in the Over 43.5!
