Pair of Week 6 NFL Against the Spread Looks

October 14, 2015

Week 6 of the NFL begins on Thursday and there are a number of games that have good matchups against the spread.

Here are two important games to look at before placing your wagers this week.

Atlanta vs. New Orleans

The Falcons on the season are a surprising 5-0 straight up and 4-1 against the spread, with an average margin of victory of 10 points. Atlanta is 2-0 SU on the road and that includes wins over the Cowboys and Giants.

The past two seasons Atlanta has been only 6-12 SU as a road team. However, the trends this year are the most important due to a new coaching staff that has changed the team’s mentality.

As far as New Orleans is concerned, the Saints are 1-4 SU while 2-3 ATS and are losing by an average margin of 8 points. The Saints have trended negatively the past couple of seasons, which suggests more of the same for this season going forward. At home, New Orleans is just 1-1 SU and ATS.

Arizona vs. Pittsburgh

Arizona is leading the AFC West at 4-1 SU as well as ATS. They own a 20-point average winning margin. The Cardinals on the road are 2-0 SU and ATS and have a winning margin on average of 25 points.

Since 2014, Arizona is 6-5 SU while 7-5 ATS in road games with winning margin of 2.5 points.

Pittsburgh won on Monday Night Football with a last second touchdown by Le’Veon Bell, The Steelers will be playing their third game without star quarterback back Ben Roethlisberger. Michael Vick looked somewhat more comfortable under center for the Steelers, but without Big Ben this matchup could be difficult for the Steelers. The Steelers are 3-2 SU on the season and in second place in the AFC North just two games behind the undefeated Cincinnati Bengals.
