NFL Week 6 early odds: Cowboys road favorites in matchup with Pats, undefeated Cardinals underdogs vs. Browns
This past Sunday was one of the more bizarre collection of games we’ve seen this season. Kickers were missing extra points at every turn, everyone on the Giants got hurt, David Mills tattooed the Patriots for three touchdowns and the Lions took a lead with 37 seconds left in the game and still lost. We also got some fascinating PB&J commentary thanks to weather delay in Bill-Chiefs. Like I said, it was a weird day in the NFL.
While we still have one more game left on the docket, it’s never too early to take a gander at the upcoming Week 6 slate of games. Below, you’ll find the opening lines for each contest along with a quick breakdown of where each team is at this stage of the year.
Week 6 early odds
(All lines from Caesars Sportsbook, all games on Sunday unless noted)
Opening line: Buccaneers -6.5
This number has already bumped up to Buccaneers -7 as bettors seem to have been impressed by Tom Brady’s five-touchdown performance against the Dolphins. That said, the Eagles were impressive in their late comeback over the Panthers in Carolina. One thing that’s worth noting for this head-to-head to begin Week 6 is that Brady is reportedly dealing with a thumb injury. However, it isn’t expected to limit his availability on Thursday night. Tampa Bay enters this game 5-1 ATS in their last six.
Dolphins (1-4) at Jaguars (0-5)
Opening line: Dolphins -3
We have ourselves another London showdown this week and it’ll be the Dolphins facing the Jaguars. Both of these clubs are coming into this international matchup after losing in Week 5. In fact, the Jaguars are winless on the season and Miami has lost four-straight following their victory in the opener. The good news for the Dolphins is that Tua Tagovailoa, who has been sidelined due to a rib injury, has a chance to make his return in this matchup, which could boost Miami’s odds above this field goal mark once given the green light.
