NFL Proline Picks | Week #6 (2012-13 Season):
Free NFL Picks For Week #6:
Selection #1: Colts (+3.5) vs. Jets (-3.5), Total 44
The Jets enter this game a -3 to -3.5 favorite. Do the Jets deserve to be a favorite against any team right now? Probably not? Again the Jets offense was pathetic against the Texans on Monday night. Sanchez is struggling to complete passes and he and his receivers are not on the same page. As for the Jets running game that may be even worse. The Colts are coming off an inspirational come from behind win over a good Packers team and we like them to carry that momentum with them into New York. No way the Jets should be favored by a field goal in this game (and they probably won’t be come kick off). Currently you can get the Colts for +3.5 for 1.85 at 5 Dimes Sportsbook or at +3 for 2.05 at Bodog Sportsbook. We’ll junp on the Colts and the +3.5 points in this game.
Taking The COLTS +3.5 Points @ 1.88
Risking 117.00 To Win 100.00
Selection #2: Bills (+5) vs. Cardinals (-5), Total 43.5
No perfect season for the Cardinals. The Cardinals finally lost a game and boy was it ugly. The Cardinals managed only a field goal in a 17-3 loss vs. the Rams. Even uglier was the 9 sacks that they allowed. The Bills haven’t exactly been great themselves lately but they have faced two tough opponents in their last two games – Patriots & 49ers. We expect the Bills to have more success this week against an overated Cardinals team. Currently the Cardinals are -5 favorite at Bodog Sportsbook. Only 1 of the Cardinals wins this season has been by more than a field goal. Laying this many points with this Cardinals team seems like a risky proposition. Instead we’ll take the Bills and the +5 points in this game.
Taking The BILLS +5 Points @ 1.91

Selection #3: Packers (+3.5) vs. Texans (-3.5), Total 47.5
Great matchup between two great teams but only one of the teams has a great record – the Texans at 5-0. After a terrible 2nd half in Indianapolis last week the Packers fell to 2-3 on the season and can’t afford another loss in week #6 if they want to be around in January. The Texans didn’t look that great themselves last week vs. the Jets. They defeated the Jets by just 6 and New York had the ball in the final minutes with a chance to win that game. It is tough to play great football week in and week out in the NFL and the Texans will hit a rough patch in the season sooner or later. Was last week a sign the Texans may be coming back down to earth? We think so. On Saturday the line for the Texans vs. Packers game moved to -3.5 points (in many places) in favor of the Texans. It is rare to be able to take more than a field goal with this talented Green Bay Packers team and we are not going to pass up this opportunity. We’ll take the Packers and the +3.5 Points at 5 Dimes Sportsbook in the week #6 Sunday Night game.
Taking The PACKERS +3.5 Points @ 1.91
Risking 110.00 To Win 100.00
Thursday Nighter: Steelers (-7) @ Titans (+7), Total 44
Hasselback is expected to start at QB for the Titans but Locker has not been ruled out. Palamalu has been ruled out for the Steelers. This game is similar to the Monday night game we just saw between the Texans and Jets. Again, the road team is a heavy favorite to a home team that has been playing awful. In the Monday night game we saw a Jets team lose the game but somehow cover the spread. We can’t find any good reason to back the Titans in this game but don’t like to lay so many points on the road either. We will pass on the point spread in this game.
We did like what we saw from Steelers RB Mendenhall in his return last week vs. the Eagles. Mendenhall ran for 81 yards on just 14 carries. The Steelers were in much need of more production on the ground as Redman had not been getting it done (averaging just 2.5 yards per carry). We expect Mendenhall to get a few more carries this game and have another strong game. The Over / Under Mendenhall’s Rushing Yards is currently 75.5 yards at Bodog Sportsbook. We’ll take Mendenhall OVER 75.5 Rushing Yards for 1.87 at Bodog Sportsbook .
Taking Mendenhall OVER 75.5 Rushing Yards @ 1.87
