Week 6 is in the books and favorites came out on top 8-6, and it's the fourth consecutive week that
favorites have covered the majority of the games. They lead 46-42-2 on the year. It was a big week for overs going 10-5, and they increase the lead 50-41 on the season. These are trends that don't bode well for the books, but we'll see how long it can continue...

The Las Vegas SuperContest consensus picks went 2-3, and now sit 17-13 on the year. Football Outsiders said they expected their picks to win from here on out, but they went 6-9 this week. Their total is now 34-54-3.

My picks were a complete crapshoot this week. They easily could have gone undefeated, and they also could have gone winless. When the dust settled I was 1-2-1 ATS.

The Jags finally covered a game, but it took an ugly backdoor cover to do so. On the flip side, the Broncos came away with a really lucky cover in a game that should have been put out of reach long before that. The Packers pulled out a last second push, but they did cover the closing line as gameday money came in on the Fins. You also cashed your ticket if you grabbed Miami +3.5 earlier in the week. Not a good result for the books. Derek Carr came up with a really nice performance and halted the Chargers ATS covering streak. Finally, Seattle blew up survivor pools and teasers everywhere with their meek showing against the Cowboys. That was one impressive win for Dallas. I still have no idea how that defense is performing so well.

Opening lines for Week 7 are out. Refresh this post throughout the week for updates.

The NHL also got underway this week, so if you want some easy money you can tail along on my hockey blog. It continues to be a gold rush of profit.

Survivor Pick

Every option in the poll came through with a win last week, with the exception of the Seahawks and the Bengals. Both looked like equally painful losses. The 49ers were another popular choice, and we'll see if they make do on MNF. Could be dicey.
