Intertops betting players should be getting ready for a busy Week 6 in the NFL this season, and here are three games get you started in your online sportsbook.
49ers Lions Odds – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET
In a meeting of two surprises, the Lions are 4-point favorites at home, even though they’ve lost nine of their last 10 against the 49ers, with six games going under the posted total. San Francisco’s defense has to catch up to the explosive Detroit offense, and that’s not a bet that cost per head players shouldn’t want to make. Also, how does Alex Smith fare against the Lions’ front four? Not good, we think. Take Detroit to cover.
Eagles Redskins Odds – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET
The Redskins are 1-point underdogs at home, where they are 2-8 SU and 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games in Washington (technically, Landover) against the Eagles with seven games falling under the posted total. Look for the Redskins to control the clock and run the ball against a soft Philadelphia rushing defense. Washington is the play this week.
Cowboys Patriots Odds – Sunday, 4:15 PM ET
In the “big-name” matchup of the week, the Patriots are favored at home, but look for the Cowboys keep it close as they’re coming off a bye and Tony Romo should be closer to 100%. Look for a lot of points in this game as neither secondary is very good. The Patriots should win, but the Cowboys will cover the online betting spread.
