PITTSBURGH, Pen. —With Week 6 of the NFL season on the horizon, there are different NFL betting lines to pick and choose from that could offer great value.
Different legal sports betting sites offer different NFL odds on different games. Sure, there are the normal betting lines such as moneyline bets and spreads but there are also other NFL game props and NFL player props to choose from as well.
Miami Dolphins vs. New York Jets Odds
- Moneyline: Dolphins (-400) vs. Jets (+300)
- Line: Dolphins -8.5
- Total: 46.5
In the later window of games, NFL odds have the Miami Dolphins as heavy favorites to take down the New York Jets.
It is no secret as to why the Dolphins are favored to win being that the Jets have gotten consistently worse as the season has gone on. From Joe Flacco under center to Le’Veon Bell being released, the Dolphins have this game in the palm of their hands. The line has seen some movement since first opening up at 9-points and has even shifted to double-digits to 10-points at one point before making its way to 8.5. The odds here seem to be fair as the Dolphins have momentum on their side after a big win against the 49ers.
Looking at the player prop bets, Ryan Fitzpatrick has his total for passing yards set at 257.5. This seems remarkably low considering that he is coming off of two straight games with over 300 passing yards. He is facing a horrific Jets defense in Week 6 and should be able to get over 300 yards with no problem.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Green Bay Packers Odds
- Moneyline: Packers (-145) vs. Buccaneers (+125)
- Line: Packers -2
- Total: 55
Sticking with the later window, arguably the biggest game of the day between two walking Hall of Famers in Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers are favored to walk away on top in this one, but it is never a good idea to bet against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers either.
Everything seems fair here considering that the Packers are undefeated thus far in the season and Aaron Rodgers has been playing at an MVP-caliber level. Where bettors could make some cash here is on the game total as the Under is favored slightly. One thing to point out is that this will likely be a high scoring affair as these are two of the most explosive offenses in the league that features Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Davante Adams, Aaron Jones, and of course Brady and Rodgers. The Over would not be a bad bet to make as they will likely go shot for shot.
Looking at some prop bets, Brady’s total for passing yards is set at 295.5 and bettors can actually look to take the Over here as he has hit it three times this season already and in a heavy-hitting game like this, bettors can expect one more. As for Aaron Rodgers, his total for yards is set at 304.5 with the under favored. He has only hit the Over two times this season, but his top receiving option, Davante Adams, was not playing. Now with Adams back, Rodgers has a chance to hit the over here as well as he now has more receiving options.
