Everyone loves an underdog. When it comes to betting on the NFL, underdogs have a chance to make bettors more money, but are less likely to win on the moneyline of course.
While there are not many two-or-more touchdown underdogs throughout the NFL season, there are always upsets on a week-to-week basis where teams that are favored lose games. Finding this value is a great way to potentially become a more profitable bettor in the long run.
Below, let’s take a look at the latest odds for Week 6 in the NFL, our favorite upset picks, and more. In addition, you can find out who the public is betting on for this week in the NFL.
Upset Picks for Week 6 in the NFL
Whether against the spread or on the moneyline, there are a number of upsets every week in the NFL. While we do not see as many large spreads as we do in college football, there is always a handful of upsets in the NFL that can swing a week for bettors. Finding the best value is key in the NFL, with legal sportsbooks varying by price. While upset picks on the moneyline are less likely to happen, the payout is much greater. This is where the phrase “any given Sunday” comes into play, where the NFL is so close (relative to college football) in terms of talent disparity. This makes betting on underdogs and upsets much more fun. In Week 5, we saw the Bills flatten the Kansas City Chiefs in an upset, and only one unbeaten team remains in the Arizona Cardinals, who are underdogs in Week 6.
Without further ado, here is a list of our favorite upset picks for Week 6 in the NFL, and their prices at the time of the pick.
- Arizona Cardinals +130 vs. Clevelend Browns at DraftKings Sportsbook
- Jacksonville Jaguars +170 vs. Miami Dolphins at DraftKings Sportsbook
- Las Vegas Raiders +170 vs. Denver Broncos at Caesars Sportsbook
