Week 6 point spread: Washington at Green Bay, Panthers vs. Cardinals

Two days left until the start of football Week 6 and we will preview the odds and point spread on the games Washington Redskins vs. Green Bay Packers and Carolina Panthers vs. Arizona Cardinals.

Week 6 point spread: Washington at Green Bay, Panthers vs. Cardinals We start with the game between the Washington Redskins (3-1) and the Green Bay Packers (4-1).  Let's quickly look at the betting odds on the matchup of these two NFC teams. For the Sunday game the Green Bay Packers come out favorite with odds to win the game at -190 at Bookmaker. The Redskins are underdog, but will pay out only +160 in the case of a victory. The point spread on the Washington Redskins vs. Green Bay Packers game is favoring the Packers -3 points, but the payout is -125, which means that both bookie and bettors are expecting a bigger win by Green Bay in Week 6. This football game will be a true battle as two of the top NFC teams will bang helmets - the Green Bay Packers have the leading offense and defense in the NFC-North and the Washington Redskins have the No.2 offense in the NFC-East, but No.1 defense in the NFC-East and 3rd overall in the league.

 Even after the home-loss against the Bears last week, the Packers still employ the best quarterback in the league. Brett Favre threw a couple of interceptions last week and this Sunday will have to stand against the No3 defense in the NFL, which won't tolerate any mistakes by the leading QB. On the other side, experts will be watching Redskins young star - the quarterback Jason Campbell. With 869 yards this season Campbell will be a threat to the 17th NFL defense of Green Bay. The last time Washington won against the Packers was in 1988, but you will be surprised how many cappers are giving this game to the Washington Redskins. Statistically, Washington is 0-5 against the spread in its last 5 games when playing Green Bay and the Packers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games. The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Washington's last 5 games when playing Green Bay.

 The football game between the Carolina Panthers (3-2) and the Arizona Cardinals (3-2) seems as a much easier bet. The Cardinals are listed with odds -245 at Bookmaker to win on Sunday and the Panthers are underdog with betting odds of +205. The point spread on the Carolina Panthers vs. Arizona Cardinals is sitting at -4.5 points chalk the Cardinals and the total is posted at 40 points. Another NFC battle, but the Cardinals have the clear advantage with 10th offensive and 14th defensive ranking in the league, compared to the Panthers' 23rd offense and 25th defense in the NFL. After QB Matt Leinart's injury last week, Arizona will employ the veteran Kurt Warner full time, who does have better stats with 62% complete passes, compared to Leinart with 54%.

 The Panthers have offense problems as well, QB David Carr suffered a back injury against the Saints last week and remains questionable for Week 6 after missing practice on Wednesday and Thursday. If Carr doesn't show improvement until Sunday the Panthers will have to use the newly signed Vinny Testaverde, who at the age of 43 would have to battle the No.1 NFC-West defense. The Panthers also have the option of using the rookie Matt Moore, who substituted briefly for Carr last week. Betting trends show that Carolina is 5-0 against the spread in its last 5 games on the road and Arizona is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games at home. The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Arizona's last 6 games when playing Carolina.
