TKO’s Week 6 NFL picks

Season record: 14-8

I was in attendance at Game 4 of the National League Division Series at Citizens Bank Park where the Phillies dismantled the Atlanta Braves, so we’re just going to get right into the NFL action this week.

NFL: Jets vs. Packers – Sunday, 1 P.M. ET (FOX)

  • Get ready to hold your breathe, but we’re taking the Jets again
  • The only Packers win by more than 7.5 points (current spread) this year is against the Bears
  • The Jets have played solid ball so far this year (3-2 record) and have only gotten easily handled by teams with explosive offenses, and that is not the Packers this season

Take Jets +7.5.

NFL: Buccaneers vs. Steelers – Sunday, 1 P.M. ET (FOX)

  • The Pittsburgh offense is rebuilding with first-round pick Kenny Pickett, and its pretty rough to start based on last week (only scoring three points against Buffalo)
  • The Bucs are a team based around defense, and even with having Tom Brady at the helm, they aren’t putting up a ton of points
  • The Steelers defense is more capable of a unit than the offense at this point, and I trust they can bounce back from last week’s disaster against the Bills

Take Under 45.

NFL: Broncos vs. Chargers – Monday, 8:15 P.M. ET (ESPN)

  • I’ve said it before, the Broncos are frauds and their offense can’t keep up with a high powered one like the Chargers
  • The Chargers are also getting Keenan Allen back, and are as healthy as they have been since week 1 in terms of their offensive weapons being available
  • I’ll just repeat it, Broncos are frauds

Take Chargers -4.5.

Also, if you believe in birthday luck… I’m turning 30 on Sunday. Tail/Fade accordingly as you’ve been warned!
