2017 NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) - Week 6

Since we began, all of our handicappers have made exactly three picks each week. No more, no less. By limiting our picks to three per week, the goal was to narrow down our picks to only those we thought were quality plays.

Starting in 2014, we have switched to a new format allowing each handicapper to make between two to five picks versus the spread each week. In addition, we will use units to better designate each handicapper's confidence in their picks ranging from one to five units.

For tracking purposes, we have tracked (and will track) both wins/losses and units (+/-) against the spread throughout the season.

2011: 27-21-3 (56.3%)

Patriots -9.5 over Jets (3 Units)

Normally it's tough laying almost 10 points on the road in a division contest, but the Jets are clearly not as good as the Patriots despite having an identical record. The Patriots get Rob Gronkowski back this week which should give them an extra option on offense. I think Tom Brady has a ...

2011: 33-14-4 (70.2%)

Ravens -6.5 over Bears (2 Units)

Making the switch from Mike Glennon to Mitchell Trubisky, the Bears scored a total of 17 points on Monday Night Football at home. That said, punter Pat O'Donnell threw one of the team's two touchdowns. The rookie will head to Baltimore on a short week where it's never easy to get ...

Jets +9.5 over Patriots (4 Units)

At the beginning of the year, this spread might be thought to be too small. However, five weeks into the year, this spread is clearly way too high. The perception of the Patriots is what inflates the line. In reality, New England has been mediocre and Tom Brady has been getting ...

Patriots -9.5 over Jets (4 Units)

The Patriots certainly have not looked like the team most experts though would dominate the season wire to wire, but this is the game that I think they will just blow the opponent off of the field. The Jets are a great story at 3-2, but of course, they have beaten Jacksonville, Cleveland ...
