Week 6 of the NFL season was one for the underdogs while an interesting London trend rings true for a second week in a row.
Teddy Keeps Saints Afloat
How about Teddy Bridgewater?
He’s picked up another win while stepping in for the injured Drew Brees for the New Orleans Saints to own a 5-1 record through six weeks of the NFL season. Few tipped the Saints to travel this well in Brees’ absense. They blew out to $13 with news of his injury. However, four consecutive wins with Bridgewater as the starter has the Saints on the third line of betting to win the Super Bowl at $7.50.
London Travel Strikes Again
After highlighting the Oakland Raiders getting to London far earlier than the Chicago Bears last week and going onto win 24-21 on the back of a fast start, it’s worth looking at when teams crossed the pond this week.
Funnily enough, the team in London first ended up taking the chocolates back to the States.
The Carolina Panthers left Wednesday night to arrive Thursday morning. Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers left 24 hours later to arrive on Friday morning. As was the case in Week 5, the team that arrived in the country first started strongest. Similarly, the arriving second finished well.
It’s worth considering when looking at Cincinnati Bengals v Los Angeles Rams at Wembley in Week 8.
Winston’s Horror Sunday
He’s one of the more talked about quarterbacks in the NFL already, but Jameis Winston is leading conversations for all of the wrong reasons this week.
Winston threw five intrceptions against the Panthers. When he wasn’t throwing passes to get picked, he was contributing two fumbles while being sacked seven times throughout the nightmare outing in London. Bruce Arians claims to be sticking by Winston, but it looks like he’s going to need to reasses that stance soon.
In need of a better team around him or not, Winston simply isn’t learning from his mistakes.
If you're the Buccaneers, do you keep Jameis Winston beyond this season?

49ers Keep Winning
“They haven’t beaten anybody!”
That was a fairly common response to the San Fancisco 49ers’ 4-0 start to the NFL season.
Now, they’re 5-0 after handling the Los Angeles Rams with relative ease.
How far can the 49ers go?
"To the Super Bowl.

The 49ers are a really good football side on both sides of the ball. Sure, they aren’t stacked with elite talent. They don’t have many weaknesses, though. In Nick Bosa, Jimmy Garoppolo, Matt Breida and George Kittle, San Francisco can beat anybody on their day.
The Niners have announced themselves as a real threat to the league and are now down to $11 to win the Super Bowl.
Favourites Cashing In
Week 6 of the NFL season was one for the Underdogs with teams taking the headstart covering in 10 of the 14 games.
However, favourites are still the flavour of the season of far.
Teams giving up points have covered at 57% through the opening six weeks.
NFL Against The Spread
The Miami Dolphins managed to cover the spread last week but they’re still winless straight up. As a result of their horror start, the Buffalo Bills enter their Week 7 game against the Dolphins as -16 favourites – their biggest line since 1992.
Meanwhile, the Niners have been cashing in for punters and did so again in Week 6 so sit at the top of the NFL ATS ladder.
