NFL Week 6 Parlays, Props & Teasers
- Two-Team Parlay: Cincinnati Bengals -3.5 (-110) & Carolina Panthers +2 (-115)
- Odds-Payout: +256
After dropping an overtime thriller to the Packers last Sunday (L, 25-22 OT), the Bengals will travel to Detroit as 3.5-point favorites over the Lions in Week 6– marking just the second time Detroit’s opponent has been favored by less than a touchdown this season.
I’ll lay the short total with Cincinnati here, as the Bengals demonstrated a tremendous amount of fight during their painstaking home loss to Green Bay last week – and Joe Burrow and company should easily bounce back against an 0-5 Lions squad suffering from all kinds of issues upfront.
For my second play, I’ll dive into another compelling afternoon NFC matchup – as Sam Darnold and the Carolina Panthers will host the Minnesota Vikings as two-point underdogs in Week 6.
I’ll take the points with Carolina here, as the Vikings nearly dropped a heartbreaker at home against the winless Lions last week (W, 19-17) – while the Panthers’ latest loss to Philadelphia felt rather fluky (L, 21-18).
- Two-Team Parlay: Los Angeles Chargers ML (+130) & Green Bay Packers ML (-220)
- Odds-Payout: +234
After erasing a massive 19-point deficit along their comeback victory over the Colts last week, the Ravens head into Week 6 as narrow home favorites over the visiting Chargers – marking the third time Justin Herbert and company have been an underdog this season.
I’ll take Los Angeles money line here, as the Chargers’ offense torched Cleveland for 47 points on 493 total yards during their impressive victory over the Browns last week (493 YDS) – and I expect Lamar Jackson and company to struggle to match that level of productivity.
For my second money line play, I’ll finish up with an NFC North matchup between Green Bay and Chicago – as Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will travel to the Windy City as six-point favorites over the Bears at Soldier Field.
I’ll take Green Bay money line here, as it hasn’t exactly been smooth sailing for them, but the Packers still head into Week 6 riding a four-game winning streak – and likely won’t have trouble making it a fifth straight over the Bears, who drew relatively weak matchups against ailing Lions and Raiders the last two weeks.
- Jonathan Taylor (RB, Indianapolis) - Over 80 Rushing Yards (-115)
- Darrell Henderson (RB, L.A. Rams) - Over 75 Rushing Yards (-115)
For my first player prop, I’ll dive into an AFC South matchup between Houston and Indianapolis – as Jonathan Taylor and the Colts will host the Texans as 10-point favorites on Sunday afternoon. I’ll take Taylor’s rushing yards over here, as Indy’s tailback racked up 169 all-purpose yards and punched in two touchdowns during the Colts’ heartbreaking loss to Baltimore last Monday – and he should have another big game against a Texans’ rush defense that ranks 26 th in total yardage and 23 rd in yards allowed per carry (134.8 YPG,4.4 YPC).
For my final play, I’ll head back to the NFC for a matchup between Los Angeles and New York – as Sean McVay’s and the Rams will travel to the Meadowlands as a 10-point-favorite over the Giants. I’ll take Henderson’s rushing yards over here, as Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, and Kenny Golladay all picked up significant injury designations during the Giants’ latest loss – which should lead to a somewhat easy victory for the Rams, and a third straight game with 80+ rushing yards for Henderson.
