Week 6 NFL Picks 2013

Keep An Eye On: Raiders Defense -The sports betting experts have the Raiders defense ranked 17th in the NFL, but that was a pretty impressive performance the team put on when it held quarterback Philip Rivers and the San Diego offense to only 17 points. The key to any team’s success is its defense. This is especially true in Oakland where young quarterback Terrelle Pryor is still learning the ropes. The Oakland defense looked overwhelmed in the first three games of the season, but it held its own in week four. Now Oakland’s defense gets to measure itself against the methodical Kansas City offense, which should be a very interesting matchup to watch.

Watch The Progress Of: Terrelle Pryor (Raiders), Alex Smith (Chiefs) -A lot of online betting experts scoffed at Terrelle Pryor when he boasted that he would be the Oakland starting quarterback. Now that he is, it is Pryor who is working hard to have the last laugh. The Raiders are so confident in Pryor that the team has released veteran quarterback Matt Flynn and Flynn’s expensive contract. New Kansas City head coach Andy Reid is using new Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith in the same way that Smith was used in San Francisco. Alex Smith is not being asked to do anything heroic with the ball. He is managing games and doing his best to protect the football. At this point, that is all that Smith needs to do to win, and that is all the Andy Reid will allow him to do.

The Raiders are definitely headed in the right direction, but the Oakland offense is not going to be able to deal with the Kansas City defense. As for Alex Smith, he will hand the ball off to Jamaal Charles and throw the ball with efficiency down the field. This will not be an easy win for Kansas City by any stretch. But it will be a game that the Chiefs should be able to cover the spread and come away with a 6-0 record that keeps them battling with the Broncos for that AFC West title. Betting Odds: Chiefs -8 1/2. Week 6 NFL Picks: Chiefs -8 1/2
