NFL Week 6 look-ahead lines are out. Once again, the Cowboys feature in the marquee game of the week. This time, they remain in California for another big showdown against a Super Bowl hopeful, facing the LA Chargers.

Every week, usually on Friday, TheLines will post look-ahead lines for the following week’s games, pulled from NFL betting sites. These look aheads give an early snapshot of the current market opinions of teams absent the week-to-week bias that can take hold following weekend results.

Week 6 NFL NFL Primetime Games

Thursday Night Football Odds

Russell Wilson played two of his stronger games as a Bronco against the Chiefs last year, and Denver covered pretty quickly both times the teams played each other. If the Broncos’ offense can remain productive against a tough Jets defense, then we could see Broncos odds drop by a hair, under the secondary NFL key number of 10.

Sunday Night Football Odds

This is not a very good situational spot for Bills odds. They’ll be flying home from London having just played two huge games, against fellow AFC contenders Dolphins and Jaguars.

Look for an inflated number here on Giants odds if the Bills once again win impressively. With the Giants as huge underdogs in Miami, we could well see this number approach +14.

Monday Night Football Odds

It’s another situational spot that really favors one team. In this case, the Cowboys will play their second straight road game coming off one of their biggest contests of the season, the playoff rematch with the 49ers. Meanwhile, the Chargers enter off the bye and at home, as well-rested as possible.

Keep an eye on the injury reports for the Chargers, though. The offense took a nosedive in Week 4 after Justin Herbert injured his non-throwing hand. Furthermore, Austin Ekeler and Joey Bosa will be looking to work their way back from injury. Chargers odds could shift past zero if things look good and the Cowboys lose as the market expects.


49ers At Browns

Speaking of the team the market expects to handle Dallas, the 49ers have a chance for their first statement win. Yes, they have played strong games thus far, but the schedule has been about as soft as possible. Taking care of the Cowboys in impressive fashion could shift 49ers odds above the key number, especially if the Browns’ QB situation remains in flux. Deshaun Watson has the bye week to get healthy.

Colts At Jaguars

Jacksonville has a tremendous opportunity for a statement win in Week 5. The Jags play “host” to the Bills in London, with an all-time travel/rest advantage after camping overseas between Weeks 4 and 5. Even a close Bills win may boost market respect.

Following that game, bettors may get an ideal fade spot. The Jaguars will fly home after two weeks in Europe and immediately face off against a hungry Colts team with its own travel/rest advantage. Bettors may have a chance to buy in on Colts odds at an inflated price.


The look-ahead lines allow you a sneak peek at the projected lines for the following week’s games. This information from a leading sports betting site will help provide lessons in understanding lines and projections before the current week’s games are played.

Many bettors tend to overreact to the previous week’s scores and results. The NFL Week 6 look-ahead lines provide a sense of stability from the oddsmaker. They sometimes offer a clear, unbiased snapshot of perceived team strength.

Bettors can also gain an edge or find value in the lines once the weekend results take hold. See if you can find any over- or under-reactions by the market.

Of course, always take note of key injuries, travel and scheduling situations, and NFL power rankings. Adjustments are part of the process, along with accounting for teams’ strengths and weaknesses, against-the-spread angles, and personnel matchups.
