Find out what bets TRO is rolling the dice on as we kick off Week 6 of the NFL Season.
The quarter-mark of the season is moments away from kick off. Here are the bets TRO is riding with going into this week:
Against the Spread:
via Bleacher Report
1) San Francisco 49ers (-10) over the Cleveland Browns
We're going to keep riding the crimson colored wave that is the 49ers. Deshaun Watson is out for the Browns, meaning P.J. Walker will get his first start of the season against the best team in football. Hop on this one before the spread moves any more.
2) Jacksonville Jaguars (-4) over the Indianapolis Colts
The Jags have found themselves in a bit of a groove. Their defense is playing very well, and the offense is looking for a game where they clean up some of the turnovers and minor miscues. The Colts have been punching above their weight class so far this season, but look for Jacksonville to take command of the Division with a statement win.
3) Seattle Seahawks (+3) at the Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati beating up on an inferior opponent has not fully convinced us that they are "back." It is a good sign that they might be trending in that direction, but this Seahawks offense will cause problems in Cincy. It's also worth noting that Seattle is 3-1 ATS this season, while the Bengals have only covered once.

1) Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears Over 44 points:
The Bears look to have unlocked some of their offensive capabilities as of late, and the Vikings have had no trouble with theirs. Look for there to be plenty of points scored in this division showdown (even without Justin Jefferson), as both of these teams with poor defenses battle it out.

1) 6-Point Teaser: Washington Commanders (+2.5 to +8.5) at Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions (-3 to +3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This Commanders/Falcons game should be a close one, as both of these two teams are floating around the same skill level. We just don't see this game getting out of hand and turning into a two score game, no matter who wins.
Detroit is one of the NFC's top teams, and is a tier above Tampa Bay (despite their surprising performance thus far). The Lions should win this game (we almost picked them at -3), but teasing them down to slight dogs will go a long way by providing a safety net.
1) Raheem Mostert Over 69.5 rushing yards against the Carolina Panthers
While the Panthers have been pretty solid on the defensive side of the ball in 4 out of their last 5 games, their one true area of weakness is defending the run, particularly up the middle. The Dolphins lead the League with over 900 rushing yards, while averaging almost 7 yards per carry. The Panthers might be without their two best defensive players in Derrick Brown and Brian Burns (both were held out of Thursday's practice with injuries), which will only leave larger gaping holes on this defensive front. The Dolphins will be without De'Von Achane, meaning more work for Mostert, and if this game gets out of hand early, the Dolphins could be tied to the run game even more than usual.
