Week 6 is upon us and I guarantee a 60% win rate this week. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Philadelphia Eagles (-6.5) Don’t think too deeply into the Eagles beating the Panthers last week without Christian Mccaffrey. Overall sloppy game by the Eagles while the Bucs scored a season high 45 points against a good defense in Miami. The Bucs have the better offensive weapons, have the better quarterback, have the better pass rush, etc. Bucs easily cover and win, 34-20.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens (Chargers +2.5) Both teams are coming off tremendous comebacks and great quarterback play. The only difference is the Chargers did it against a good Browns defense, and the Ravens did it against a 1-4 banged-up Colts team. Ravens are on a short week going against a hot Chargers team. This feels like a trap game for the Ravens. I am picking the upset Chargers win 29-23.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Washington Football Team (Chiefs -6.5) I know the Chiefs have a losing record and QB Patrick Mahomes is playing more sloppily because they are forcing him to be superman because of their horrible defense. Chiefs have also had the hardest schedule all year and when they faced a weak team like the Eagles they put up 40+. Washington has also a bad defense so far this year and a question mark at quarterback, an easy cover for the Chiefs. Chiefs win 38-25.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Detroit Lions (Bengals -3.5) Remember the Bengals were a missed field goal away multiple times of being a 4-1 team upsetting the Packers. The Lions have shown they can compete but ultimately have lost every game this season. I like QB Joe Burrow to have a better performance this week against a bad team in the Lions. Bengals cover the spread 27-21.

Dallas Cowboys vs. New England Patriots (Dallas -3.5) For the fifth game in a row this season, Dallas has covered the spread and has been one of the best teams in football. New England barely survived against a horrible Texans team last week, while the Cowboys beat the brakes off the Giants. I see the Cowboys establishing the run and opening up play action and easily cover this week. Cowboys win 31-20.
