NFL Week 6 begins with a Thursday Night Football game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Philadelphia Eagles, with the Buccaneers favored by 6.5 points. The Buccaneers are the current Super Bowl favorites at +500, with the Buffalo Bills moving towards the top at +550 after beating the Kansas City Chiefs on the road in Week 5. The Chiefs are still in third at +750, with the Rams just behind them at +800. All four of those teams are facing lower-tier opponents in Week 6, and all four of them are favored by at least five points as a result.
Week 6 doesn’t have a true standout game like Week 5 did with the Bills and Chiefs, but one matchup that should draw a lot of attention is the Los Angeles Chargers at the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens enter Week 6 as AFC North favorites after an improbable comeback victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football, while the Chargers are the AFC West favorites due in large part to the Chiefs’ struggles. The Chargers are easily the unlikeliest of NFL divisional favorites at this stage of the season, as they were +450 to win the AFC West when the season began. They currently sit at +125, with the Chiefs still not too far behind at +150.
The NFL MVP race has moved around a bit heading into Week 6 as well, and Josh Allen is the new favorite at +450 after leading an impressive victory in Kansas City, despite the fact that Kyler Murray’s Arizona Cardinals are still undefeated. Murray is just behind Allen at +500, with Dak Prescott, Justin Herbert, and Tom Brady following next. Prescott has also done a lot to solidify himself as the favorite for Comeback Player of the Year, and he’s leading the race there by a significant margin at -175.
