2010 Week 6 NFL Picks - If Michael Vick had been healthy enough to play in this Week 6 NFL Picks contest, the Atlanta Falcons (4-1) vs. the Philadelphia Eagles (3-2) would have been the Game of the Week. Instead, this Week 6 NFL Picks game will have to settle for being one of the top match-ups in the NFC Conference featuring two first-place teams. Las Vegas Odds & Vegas Spreads at Bodog.com have listed Eagles as -2 1/2 point favorites at home.
The Falcons feature one of the most dynamic offenses in the NFL to go with a defense averaging 14 points a NFL Picks game against. Matt Ryan has been consistent at quarterback with 7 touchdowns and more than 221 yards per game. Roddy White has continued his ascent to become one of the top receivers in the game, Tony Gonzalez is still an elite quarterback, and the running game has been a powerhouse behind Michael Turner (421 yards) and Jason Snelling (244 yards). Atlanta has featured an opportunistic defense with 13 turnovers and 11 sacks. The linebackers have been playmakers and Dunta Robinson has made a difference in the secondary.
Philadelphia also features a top-tier offense, and limits opponents’ passing games on defense. While Vick had been the spark the team needed, the Eagles still defeated the 49ers 27-24 behind Kevin Kolb, the man Vick replaced. Kolb has just thrown 2 touchdowns but he has had a week to get his feet and should be back to 100% against the Falcons. Just as Vick energized the offense, LeSean McCoy has provided a real plus in the running game, gaining nearly 400 yards rushing and 5 touchdowns. DeSean Jackson has averaged over 20 yards per catch and the Falcons will be forced to defend him all over the field, rotating coverage to his side, and freeing room for Jeremy Maclin and tight end Brent Celek, who has been a forgotten man. Las Vegas Odds & Vegas Spreads at Bodog have listed the total Atlanta at Philadelphia at 43 points.
The Falcons might be the best team in the NFC right now and they have something to prove against the Eagles. Week 6 NFL Picks Take Atlanta to beat the Vegas spread and win a crucial game on the road.
