Week 6 NFL Odds - Lions vs Giants Expert Vegas Picks & NFL Predictions: Can the Detroit Lions do the unthinkable and win two NFL picks caontests in a row? The Lions (1-4) visit the New York Giants (3-2) in week six of the NFL odds schedule and Vegas odds makers have placed the Giants as-10(-110) point NFL odds favorites at home so there is real question whether the Lions can even cover the Vegas odds makers NFL point spread this week.
The Lions, though, are 4-1 against the spread this NFL odds season so the week 6 NFL picks match-up could be closer than expected. Last week, Detroit played its best NFL picks contest in 15 years with an impressive 44-6 victory over the Rams. Shaun Hill threw three touchdown passes and the Lions defense forced three turnovers. Even the special teams chipped-in with a kick-off return for a touchdown. Hill has been a big surprise as he has helped the Lions to the 6th ranked passing offense in the NFL. Four players have over 20 catches, including tight end Brandon Pettigrew and receiver Calvin Johnson. Despite the good performance a week ago, the Lions remain one of the worst defenses in the NFL and have given-up just enough points in nearly every game to lose. After a fast start this NFL odds season, the pass rush led by rookie Ndamukong Suh, has slowed some but the rookie has been an impact player, helping the team force 14 turnovers.
The Giants quietly have overcome blow-out loses to the Colts and Titans and are in the thick of the NFC playoff race this 2010 NFL predictions season. Last week, the defense completely shut-down the Texans running game and held the prolific offense to under 200 yards. Overall, the Giants are #1 in pass defense and #9 in run defense, making yardage hard to earn for opponents. Justin Tuck has led the way with 4 sacks and 32 tackles, regaining his 2007 form. The Giants have been less impressive on the other side of the ball this NFL picks season, Eli Manning has taken too many sacks and thrown too many interceptions. Ahmad Bradshaw has been a pleasant surprise at running back and Hakeem Nicks with 6 TDs has turned into a red zone threat.
The Giants should win today's week 6 NFL odds match-up but Detroit, as it has done all year, will keep the score close for the battle of the Vegas spread.
