NFL Week 6 odds roundup: Bears small favourites, Bills big underdogs

Sports

The Chicago Bears will be looking to extend their lead atop the NFC North standings when they visit the Miami Dolphins on Sunday as 3-point favourites on the NFL Week 6 odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Chicago enjoyed a bye last weekend after tallying three consecutive wins, and maintains sole possession of first place in the NFC North entering Week 6 for the first time since 2010, sporting a 3-1 record going into Sunday afternoon’s matchup at Hard Rock Stadium.

The Bears have emerged as one of the surprise stories of the season on the strength of a stingy defence that has surrendered a meagre 16.3 points per game, while limiting opposing rushers to an NFL-best 64.0 yards per game.

Chicago also demonstrated a surprisingly explosive offence in their last outing, crushing the previously undefeated Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-10 as 3-point home chalk in their Week 4 matchup.

Conversely, it has been a tough two weeks for the Dolphins, who are coming off a 27-17 loss in Cincinnati on Sunday to fall to 3-2. Miami opened the season with three straight wins, but has struggled since.

The Dolphins were outclassed by New England in a 38-7 loss as 6.5-point road underdogs in Week 4, and blew a 17-point lead in last weekend’s loss to the Bengals as 6-point road underdogs, but have taken three of four from Chicago since 2002, according to the OddsShark NFL Database.

Elsewhere on the NFL Week 6 odds, the Cleveland Browns try to stay undefeated on home turf as they host the Los Angeles Chargers as 1-point underdogs, while the Buffalo Bills travel to Houston as 10-point underdogs.

The Browns went to overtime for the third time this season in last Sunday’s 12-9 win over Baltimore as 3-point home underdogs, and will be aiming to remain unbeaten in four straight at FirstEnergy Stadium for the first time since 2007. The Chargers are coming off a pair of SU home wins, and are an uneven 3-4 SU in their past seven road dates, but have won and covered in three straight as road chalk.

The Bills are pegged as massive underdogs in a third straight road date, and have posted SU and against the spread losses in their past two road dates with the Texans.

NFL Week 6 kicks off on Thursday night as the struggling Philadelphia Eagles visit the New York Giants as 3-point betting favourites, while action returns to London on Sunday afternoon as the Seattle Seahawks battle the Oakland Raiders at Wembley Stadium as 3-point chalk.
