Week 6 NFL Picks - The Green Bay Packers (3-2) had Super Bowl aspirations going into the season but injuries have temporarily derailed their trip to Dallas. In this week's Week 6 NFL Picks matchup Green Bay will play Host to Miami. Starting running back Ryan Grant was lost for the season in week one and two more starters, linebacker Nick Barnett and tight end Jermichael Finley, underwent surgery this week. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion last week but is expected to play in this game and NFL sack leader Clay Matthews, Jr. is banged-up. Is Paul Horning busy this weekend?
Miami at Green Bay - Despite the injuries, the Packers have been installed as Las Vegas NFL Odds -3 point favorites against the Miami Dolphins (2-2) for this Week 6 NFL Picks matchup.
After two 2010 NFL Picks wins, Miami has lost two AFC East conference games, the last 41-14 versus New England, a game that featured so many special teams breakdowns that the special teams coach lost his job the day after. The Dolphins have been much more balanced in 2010 as Chad Henne has looked for Brandon Marshall to ignite the passing game. Marshall has caught 27 balls but only one touchdown and will be going-up against Charles Woodson and a Packers’ passing defense that has allowed just five passing touchdowns all year. Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams have continued to be a solid 1-2 punch but, between them, they only have 1 touchdown run. Teams have run on the Packers’ defense so Brown and/or Williams could have a good day.
With over 1,200 yards and 9 touchdowns, Rodgers has been as good as advertised and with Finley, his leading receiver in yardage, he’ll have to look for his old favorites Greg Jennings and Donald Driver. The secondary of the Dolphins have given-up 9 plays of 20 yards or more and five touchdown passes so Green Bay could take their shots down the field. The Dolphins’ defense have allowed running backs some freedom this season but the Packers have been unable to get anything going on the ground since Grant’s injury. Maybe this will be the week Brandon Jackson breaks out. Las Vegas NFL Odds have listed the total Miami at Green Bay at 44 points.
Even with all the injuries, the Packers have enough weapons to defeat the Dolphins and should cover the Vegas spread and win at Lambeau Field, a tough place to play no matter who is on the field for the Pack. Week 6 NFL Picks & NFL Predictions Bet on Green Bay Packers.
