NFL Consensus Report Week 6 Pick

NFL Consensus: Finding Winners with Percentages
The NFL Consensus report is always a valuable handicapping tool and it reveals a few teams in Week 6 that are worth a wager. The key to using the consensus report is to go against the public. The perception in football betting is that teams do not win if the public is betting on them.
So nowadays with increased technology several sites to include Bang The Book offer consensus reports showing who is getting most of the action. A quick look at week six reveals several teams that are getting heavy public action.
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots lead the way in public betting this week as nearly 80 percent of the action is coming in on the road team. The Patriots have always been a popular team and so it comes as no surprise that they are getting plenty of attention from the betting problem. However the short line may speak volumes. After all it is just -3.5 and if the Patriots are that good they should easily beat the Seahawks, or at least that is what the public thinks.
Another small line that is getting plenty of attention is the game between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns. The Bengals have dominated the Browns on the scoreboard in this series and the betting public has taken notice. They have come out in droves to back the road Bengals and Andy Dalton. They are the second highest road team getting public attention to the tune of over 65 percent.
Despite all of that attention the Bengals are just one-point favorites. This is something to take note of as the Browns seem to be steadily improving every week. They now are live underdogs and getting just one-point is a very interesting angle.
Use the NFL Consensus report every week to bolster your bankroll and get the most bang for your buck when betting on the NFL.
