Week 6 NFL OVER UNDER picks

Maybe you’ve already got your picks in for Week 6 of the 2020 NFL regular season, but by focusing only on point spreads, moneylines or fantasy, you’re robbing yourself of potential opportunities to make money on over/unders.

Here are several Week 6 NFL OVER UNDER picks (opening totals from BetRivers and Sugarhouse ) that are worthy of your attention. Check out the Week 6 NFL odds and matchup reports on every game as well.

Last week’s record: 10-6-2

Baltimore Ravens at Philadelphia Eagles (46.5)

The heavily favored Ravens have scored at least 27 points in all four of their wins, while every Eagles game this season has contained at least 44 points. Baltimore’s defense is strong and Philly’s offense has been a mess, but the Eagles are slowly getting healthier on that side of the ball. Baltimore should hit the 30 plateau but Philadelphia should be able to put up 20 points as this one flies over by at least a touchdown.

Chicago Bears at Carolina Panthers (44)

The Bears have scored just 31 total points the last two weeks while the Panthers have surrendered just 17.7 points per game the last three weeks. Carolina’s offense has exceeded expectations without Christian McCaffrey of late, but that doesn’t feel overly sustainable against one of the league’s best defenses.

Look for this to be the fourth Bears game in a six-week span to fall short of 40 total points.

Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts (47)

I have no idea why this total is so high. The Bengals scored just three points last week against Baltimore and now face an even tougher defense. DeForest Buckner and Justin Houston should tee off on a terrible Cincinnati offensive line, and there’s little reason to believe an Indy offense that has scored just 42 points the last two weeks will suddenly put up 30-plus here. This one should fall short of 40.

Washington Football Team at New York Giants (43)

The hell? Washington has surrendered 30-plus points in four straight games and the Giants just combined for 71 with Dallas. Sure, the New York offense is unpredictable and the Washington offense has been a disaster, but both teams should easily score more than 20 points here. The over is a no-brainer.
