Week 6 of the NFL season is bound to be interesting as we still have 6 teams that have the undefeated status. One game everyone should watch is NFL Thursday match-up between the Atlanta Falcons and the New Orleans Saints.
The Falcons are currently an undefeated 5-0 team that were listed as the underdog by the online sportsbook for their first three games until the bookies finally noticed that they were winning and not stopping. This matchup will be a good old NFC Southern rivalry match but can the Saints with a 1-4 record put a stop to their winning streak?
Most football handicappers seem to think that the Falcons will win outright but will not cover the spread as they believe that they are an overrated team. The Falcons are looking to get their first 6-0 start while the Saints are just looking to get some respect as their chance of making the playoffs are pretty slim at this point.
Another game to watch will be the Chicago Bears as they take on the Detroit Lions. The Bears started the season slowly and it looks like they are finally getting their act together but the Lions are hungry for a win.
This should be a good watch as we get to see Matt Forte of the Bears who is currently the NFL’s leading rusher with 483 yards and with QB Jay Cutler who is starting to look much better on the field. However, Ezekiel Ansah is back in the game after having missed the last two games due to a shoulder injury and he is currently tied in the league with five sacks that could put a stop to Forte.
It seems that all we have been hearing in NFL Betting circles is the big match-up between the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots. For years, these two teams have faced off with the Patriots defeating the Colts at almost every turn.
This time however, Colts fans may just see a turnaround with no deflategate excuse. Currently the Patriots have a 4-0 record and seem to be blowing away the competition. Unfortunately, this may come to a stop as they have had a few significant injuries with LT Nate Solder who was recently injured and Flowers, Hightower and Brown. Despite the injury, online sports betting fans know that the Patriots have a bone to pick with the Colts due to deflategate and will do their best to crush them.
On the Colts front, even though they have the most losses to the Patriots, they are expecting a lot from Andrew Luck for this game. Indianapolis currently has a 3-2 record and with Luck back in the driver’s seat, they may have a chance if he can figure out the Patriots defense. No matter which way this game goes, it will be one the game to watch this Sunday.
