NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) for Week 6

Despite losing two in a row, the Los Angeles Rams are double-digit favorites headed into Sunday's home game against Carolina.

At this point in the NFL season if there's anything we've learned it's this – no home favorite is safe. Four road dogs won in Week 5 and only four of the seven home teams that were favored by five or more points covered. And one of those (Minnesota) was technically a push, at least as it relates to our panel.

Nothing really jumps out for Week 6 from a Vegas standpoint. There are a couple of heavy home favorites and a couple of clear-cut road favorites. Only one team will likely kick off their game as a double-digit favorites, and that's a Rams team that's lost two in a row. But it certainly doesn't hurt if you are at home and your opponent is the team that just fired their head coach.
