Best DraftKings Odds for NFL Week 6
When you log in to DraftKings the NFL button is at the top left of the list of sports. That’s because NFL betting is the most popular activity for recreational bettors by a large margin. Folks love to wager on the NFL, and for good reason. The league offers an endless string of storylines, exciting players, and a fast-paced, thrilling game that lends itself to stirring finishes.
Here are our top three NFL picks for Week 6:
Minnesota Vikings (-3) at Miami Dolphins — Sunday, Oct. 16, Noon CT
What to make of the Dolphins? Following a great start to the season on the offensive side of the football, the team has limped to 31 points and only three touchdowns in their last eight quarters. If there’s one thing we know about the Vikings, they play gritty defense and they struggle to score. OK, that’s TWO things, but… We like the Vikings D to stymie the Dolphins in a low-scoring “Here you take it, no I don’t want it,” type of game.
PICK: Bet the under, listed at 45.5 by DraftKings.
Carolina Panthers (+10) at Los Angeles Rams — Sunday, Oct. 16, 3:05 p.m. CT
The Rams are still a Super Bowl contender, but the team is showing how difficult it is to channel determination in a season following a ticker tape parade. No team, not even the Panthers, who have allowed 30 PPG, should be 10-point underdogs. Not against a Rams team that’s struggling.
PICK: Take 10 points and go with Carolina
Dallas Cowboys (+6.5) at Philadelphia Eagles — Sunday, Oct. 16, 7:20 p.m. CT
Few people thought the Cowboys could go on the road and defeat the Rams in Week 5. They were road dogs to the defending Super Bowl champs. But, defensive coordinator Dan Quinn spun some magic over his players, and Dallas basically manhandled their opponent. But we knew it, and we said so last week in our NFL preview. So, why couldn’t Dallas win again as road underdogs this week in Philly? Sure, the Eagles are football’s only undefeated team, but if the grouchy aging members of the 1972 Miami Dolphins have shown us anything, it’s that everyone eventually loses.
PICK: Gladly accept 6.5 points and go all in on the Cowboys. If you’re especially bold, bet the moneyline as a straight win for the Jerry Jones’ Boys, for $225 winnings on a $100 wager.
