Baltimore, New Orleans feature some of the best odds for NFL Week 6
With Week 6 already upon us, the NFL season feels like it is flying by.
There are a few interesting out-of-conference games that should be fantastic for viewers this weekend. The Ravens head to MetLife Stadium to take on the surprising New York Giants while Joe Burrow heads to Caesars Superdome, where he won a National Championship, to face off against the Saints.
Let’s get into Jets X-Factor’s Week 6 NFL best bets.
- Last week’s record: 2-0
- Season record: 10-3

Baltimore Ravens @ New York Giants
The New York Giants come into this game after a big Week 5 win over the Green Bay Packers in London. New York has jumped out to a shocking 4-1 record but that could be misleading. The combined record of the teams the Giants have beaten is only 9-12 and they are only winning by an average of 4.3 points per game.
The Giants’ passing offense has been abysmal this season. They rank 31st in the NFL in passing yards per game with only 154.2. Saquon Barkley and the Giants’ rushing attack has been very good as they rank second in the league in rushing yards at 179 per game.
The Baltimore Ravens have one of the best offenses in the NFL through five weeks. They rank fourth in points scored per game, averaging 27.6.
Lamar Jackson has been playing at an elite level to start the season. He has 12 passing touchdowns to go along with a 97.9 passer rating, which is sixth-best in the NFL. Jackson is also a massive threat to run the football as he has 374 rushing yards and is averaging 7.6 yards per carry.
I do not think the Giants have the offensive firepower to keep up with this Ravens offense. I expect the Ravens to win this one comfortably.
The Play: Baltimore Ravens -6
Cincinnati Bengals @ New Orleans Saints
The Bengals have been pretty disappointing after miraculously reaching the Super Bowl last season. They have a 2-3 record and sit in third place in the AFC North. Their high-powered offense has been very mediocre (16th with 21.6 points per game) as they look nothing like they did last year.
The Saints have also been pretty average. They are 2-3 through five weeks and have been playing very inconsistently, especially on offense. However, the offense is starting to put some good games together as the Saints are averaging 32 points over the last two weeks.
I think there is a lot of value on New Orleans in this spot. The Bengals are on the back end of back-to-back road games while the Saints are having two straight home games.
I don’t think the Bengals should be favorites here so I will take the Saints plus the points.
The Play: New Orleans Saints +2
