NFL Week 6 Double Action: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons & Los Angeles Rams at Denver Broncos
If you like making NFL parlay picks that offering you the opportunity to cash in big and you’re looking for some excellent betting value, then I say look no further!
A pair of desperate teams will be looking to hold it down at home in their respective NFL Week 6 matchups when Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons host the division rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Case Keenum and the Denver Broncos host the unbeaten Los Angeles Rams.
Okay, with the weekend approaching, let’s get started.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons
While Tampa Bay will be well-rested after a bye this past weekend, the fact of the matter is that the Buccaneers looked completely clueless on both sides of the ball when we last saw the Bucs taking an emphatic 48-10 beatdown by Chicago on the chin.
With former starter Jameis Winston back under center for journeyman veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, the Bucs were held to just 60 rushing yards in the loss while Winston tossed two picks. Defensively, Tampa Bay gave up a whopping six TD passes to Chicago’s Mitch Trubisky.
The Atlanta Falcons may have gotten blown out 41-17 last weekend by Pittsburgh and they may be really hurting on the defensive side of the ball with several starters out of the lineup. However, I’m going to urge you to back Matt Ryan and the once ‘Dirty Birds’ out of a combination of sheer desperation and this being a NFC South division matchup.
Atlanta has won three straight against Tampa Bay and five of the last eight meetings overall. The Buccaneers are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games In the month of October and 1-4 ATS in their last five road games against a team with a losing home record. On the flip side of the coin, the favorite in this series has gone 10-4-1 ATS in the last 15 meetings.
Yes, the Falcons have problems, particularly on defense where they’ve lost a handful of starters, but Tampa Bay just can’t be trusted. Back Matty Ice and the desperate Atlanta Falcons to win and cash in.
Predicted Score: Falcons 31 Buccaneers 27
Los Angeles Rams at Denver Broncos
The Rams remained unbeaten by surviving their stiffest test so far this season. LA got past Seattle 33-31 in a thriller on Sunday as Todd Gurley ran for three scores and Jared Goff threw for another. While Los Angeles did give up three passing scores to Seattle’s Russell Wilson, they also managed to shut Seattle out in the fourth quarter to get the comeback win. Los Angeles converted a crucial fourth-and-1 with just under two minutes remaining to get the win as Goff pulled off the quarterback sneak.
“We knew we were going to get it,” running back Todd Gurley said.
Denver got all kinds of smacked around in their humbling 34-16 road loss against the Jets on Sunday by allowing running back Isaiah Crowell to rush for a franchise record 219 yards while allowing Jets rookie quarterback Sam Darnold to throw three TD passes. Despite getting 377 passing yards and two TD passes from Case Keenum, Denver had no answers on how to stop Crowell and the Jets.
“We usually are a pretty stout defense,” Broncos linebacker Von Miller said. “Today, we weren’t. We got gashed over the top two or three times today. It was a rough one.”
I don’t see any way whatsoever Denver comes out on top in this contest. The Broncos are no longer the defensive juggernaut they were a few years ago when they won the Super Bowl and clearly, signing Case Keenum is also not going to be the answer they were looking for at the quarterback position following some massive struggles the last two seasons.
The Broncos have gone a pitiful 1-10 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up loss, 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 home games and 0-5 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record. Los Angeles is completely and utterly superior to Denver in every way in this week 6 Inter-Conference clash and they’ll win by double digits to cover the chalk because of it!
Predicted Score: Rams 31 Broncos 20
