The AFC West is the place to be for Week 6 of the NFL season as all four teams will be playing each other. The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders have been a cut above in the division, but we’ll see if the San Diego Chargers and Kansas City Chiefs can pull them back to the pack with upset wins this week.
Denver Broncos @ San Diego Chargers
Odds: Broncos -3
The Broncos are 4-1 after a 23-16 loss to Atlanta and they clearly missed starting quarterback Trevor Siemian as rookie Paxton Lynch struggled in his first start. They’ll be hoping that Siemian is back in time to face the 1-4 Chargers, who gave away another game in a 34-31 loss to Oakland. They’ve held second-half leads in all of their losses yet they continue to find new ways to blow games. The Broncos have dominated this matchup of late, going 9-1 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last ten meetings with the Chargers, who haven’t beaten Denver at home since November 2010.
Philadelphia Eagles @ Washington Redskins
Odds: Eagles -1.5
The Eagles are 3-1 after a 24-23 loss to Detroit and maybe this serves them well as they played like they’ve been drinking their own Kool-Aid a little too much; they had been receiving a lot of praise over the first four weeks. The Redskins are 3-2 after a 16-10 win over Baltimore, and while it wasn’t pretty they got the job done. Very quietly, they’ve now won three straight games. The two have split their last ten meetings SU (Washington has won the last three) and the Redskins are 6-4 ATS over that time.
Kansas City Chiefs @ Oakland Raiders
Odds: Raiders -1.5
The Chiefs are 2-2 and coming off a bye, which is Andy Reid’s strength as he is 10-4 ATS after the bye week. The Raiders are 4-1 and tied with Denver atop the AFC West after their win over San Diego. However, they’re still allowing the most yards in the league. Kansas City’s defense is 21st in yards allowed and both are ranked in the bottom half of the NFL in points allowed, so this could be a high-scoring affair. The Chiefs are 6-4 SU (three straight wins) and 5-5 ATS in their last ten against the Raiders, who are 3-7 SU and ATS in their last ten at home against the Chiefs.
Atlanta Falcons @ Seattle Seahawks
Odds: Seahawks -6
The Falcons are 4-1 after their win over Denver, but they still have a lot to prove because, remember, they started 6-1 last season and still missed the playoffs. The Seahawks are coming off their bye week at 3-1, which was great for Russell Wilson as he was able to get some rest and treatment on his ailing knee and ankle. The Seahawks are 5-5 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last ten against Atlanta, whose 33-10 loss at home in November 2013 was their first in five SU games with Seattle.
Dallas Cowboys @ Green Bay Packers
Odds: Packers -4
This might be the biggest game of the weekend – especially if you count the rabid fan bases. The Cowboys are 4-1 after beating Cincinnati 28-14 and the Dak Prescott-Ezekiel Elliott rookie duo out of the backfield is playing lights out right now. The Packers won 23-16 on Sunday night over the New York Giants, but Aaron Rodgers threw two picks and still looks a little off. The Packers are 7-3 SU (five straight wins) and 6-4 ATS in their last ten against Dallas.
