The things are hitting up in the National Football League. Week 6 started with the Patriots’ convincing victory over the Giants on Thursday Night Football and continues with 12 games on Sunday. There are plenty of interesting matchups on the schedule and will show you our best picks for a 7-point teaser.
Some teams are already in big trouble including the Arizona Cardinals (1-3-1; 3-2 ATS) and Atlanta Falcons (1-4; 1-4 ATS). Whoever losses today will need a miracle to get back in the playoff picture. Therefore, I expect to see a tight clash, taking the Falcons as 4.5-point underdogs.
Both Arizona and Atlanta are struggling defensively, and I think the Falcons have more offensive firepower than the Cardinals. Although their ground game is the 2nd-worst in the NFL, the Falcons’ passing game should dominate the Cardinals’ defense.
Arizona is surrendering 27.6 points (28th in the NFL) and 269.2 passing yards per game (24th). On the other side, Matt Ryan is tallying 331.0 yards per outings. He’s tossed for 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Julio Jones, Austin Hooper, and Calvin Ridley are all doing a good job, combining for 1017 yards and nine TD.

On the other hand, the Falcons’ defense is terrible, allowing 30.4 points per game (31st). They were humiliated by the Houston Texans last week, surrendering 53 points on 592 total yards. I expect the Falcons to pick up the pieces a bit and put on a much better performance against Kyler Murray and Arizona’s offense.
As well as Arizona and Atlanta, the Jacksonville Jaguars (2-3; 3-2 ATS) will be in trouble if they lose to the New Orleans Saints (4-1; 3-2 ATS). The Jaguars are coming off a 34-27 defeat at Carolina, while the Saints outlasted Tampa Bay 31-24 at home in Week 5.
The Saints still miss Drew Brees, but I don’t think the Jags are that good to beat New Orleans by 10 or more points. Teddy Bridgewater tossed for 314 yards, four touchdowns, and a pick against the Buccaneers. Michael Thomas had 11 receptions for 182 yards and a couple of touchdowns.
On the other side, Gardner Minshew is leading the Jags’ offense, tossing for 1279 yards, nine touchdowns, and an interception. The rookie has been impressive, but the Jags’ defense has been struggling. They are allowing 23.6 points (18th) on 382.0 total yards per game (24th).
The Saints are riding a three-game winning streak. They are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 outings on the road and 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings with Jacksonville. Hereof, I would tease the Saints to ten points.
With a two-game 7-point teaser, you will get -120 odds. If you want to take a three-game 7-point teaser, we suggest you add the San Francisco 49ers (4-0; 3-1 ATS) to cover a 10-point spread at the LA Rams (3-2; 4-1 ATS).
The 49ers are playing in a terrific form. Their ground game is the best in the league, racking up 200.0 yards per game. The Niners are scoring 31.8 points per contest (2nd) while allowing only 14.2 in a return (4th).
Still, the Niners will have a tall task to beat their division rivals on the road. The Rams lost two straight games and will be keen to bounce back. Also, they allowed 55 points to the Buccaneers in the previous outing at home.
On the other hand, the Rams will miss Todd Gurley (thigh) which is a huge blow for their offense. The Rams are averaging only 96.2 rushing yards per game (22nd), so they will miss Gurley a lot. Even if they beat the 49ers, I don’t see the Rams doing it by 11 or more points.
