NFL point spread:
Saints vs. Seahawks, Oakland at San Diego
The last two games from our
NFL Week 6 spread and odds preview are the matchups between the
New Orleans Saints vs. The Seattle Seahawks and Oakland Raiders
vs. the San Diego Chargers.
Sunday the Oakland Raiders (2-2) will visit the San
Diego Chargers (2-3) in what seems to be a guaranteed win
for the Chargers, despite the worse record this season. The
Bookmaker has listed the San
Diego Chargers as the ultimate favorite with odds -475 and the
Raiders are underdog +395. The point spread for the Oakland
Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers game is sitting at -9.5
points chalk San Diego and the total is posted at 44 points.
Lets take a look at what the two teams
are bringing to the field on Sunday. Probably the best tool for
the Chargers in this game will be head coach Norv Turner, who
was with the Raiders in 2004 and 2005 and should help the
Chargers prepare better for the matchup. San Diego quarterback
Philip Rivers finally woke up last week and performed on a level
expected from the 26-year-old QB, killing the Broncos 41-3.
Rivers should be able to improve his record when he faces the
26th ranked defense of the Raiders. Running back LaDainian
Tomlinson and WR Vincent Jackson will compliment the Chargers'
The Oakland Raiders are not doomed in
this AFC West battle. QB Daunte Culpepper will get a second
start, after replacing injured starter Josh McCown against Miami
in Week 4, passing for 2 touchdowns for the Raiders 35-17
victory. Adding some points to the total score won't be a
problem as the 9th-ranked Oakland offense will meet the 22nd
overall of the Chargers. The most likely target of Culkpepper
will again be WR Jerry Porter, however, running back LaMont
Jordan is still questionable for Week 6, with back injury
against Miami, after missing practice on Wednesday.
Stats show that Oakland is 2-7 against
the spread in its last 9 games, but 4-2 ATS in its last 6 games
on the road. San Diego is 2-6 against the spread in its last 8
games and 7-1 ATS in its last 8 games when playing Oakland. The
total has gone UNDER in 5 of San Diego's last 5 games when
And the last game on Sunday we are
looking into is the New Orleans Saints (0-40 against the
Seattle Seahawks (3-2). The Saints will attempt first
victory this season when they visit Seattle this weekend, but
Bookmaker gives them no chance
with odds +240, having the Seahawks favorite with betting line
of -290. The point spread for New Orleans Saints vs. Seattle
Seahawks is favoring the Seahawks -9.5 points and the total
is set down at 42.5 points.
Reggie bush put a good work for the
Saints last game against the Panthers but almost all the punters
are expecting a 0-5 out of this game. New Orleans quarterback
Drew Bees is 112 from 177 with 929 yards but will be no match to
Hasselbeck's 90.5 rating with 1148 yards. New Orleans is 0-5
against the spread in its last 5 games and 1-4 ATS in its last 5
games when playing Seattle. The total has gone UNDER in 6 of
Seattle's last 7 games when playing New Orleans. Overall many
expect a Seahawks victory by a few points.
