The betting odds for Week 6 of the 2017 NFL season are unlike any that the league has seen all year. With 14 games on the upcoming schedule, five games feature point spreads of at least 9.5 points, and there are only three betting lines of three points or less.

The Denver Broncos are the biggest Week 6 favorites as they host the banged-up New York Giants on “Sunday Night Football.” Not only is New York one of three winless teams, but they’ve lost wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall for the entire season. The 3-1 Broncos will have had two weeks to prepare for the Giants since they had a bye in Week 5.

The New England Patriots are one of only two road favorites in Week 6. They are giving the New York Jets 9.5 points in a game that surprisingly means a lot for both teams. The Patriots and Jets are tied with the Buffalo Bills for first place in the AFC East.

The Tampa Bay Bay Buccaneers are the other team that’s favored on the road. Their game with the Arizona Cardinals features the week’s smallest betting line.

“Thursday Night Football” arguably features the best game of Week 6 when the Philadelphia Eagles visit the Carolina Panthers. The two teams are tied with the NFC’s best record at 4-1.

Sunday’s premier matchup is easily the contest between the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers. Kansas City remains the league’s only unbeaten team. Pittsburgh is still the clear favorite to win the AFC North, despite two puzzling losses in the first five weeks.

There is no available point spread at the start of Week 6 for three games because of quarterback injuries. Both Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota were forced to sit Sunday, and it’s unknown if they will suit up after Week 5 losses dropped their respective teams to 2-3. The Minnesota Vikings pulled Sam Bradford from “Monday Night Football” when he aggravated his knee injury, and he could be placed on the shelf for a few more weeks.

The Cincinnati Bengals, Dallas Cowboys, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills all have a bye in Week 6.

Below are the complete betting lines for all the Week 6 games, including the point spreads and totals. These are the consensus odds from multiple sportsbooks in Las Vegas and online, via OddsShark.
