Week 6 NFL odds and lines, Raiders vs. Falcons: Big spread in favor of Atlanta

Oakland is 1-4 against the spread in its last five games and faces a large spread against the Falcons.

As one of only two undefeated teams, it's not entirely surprising that the Atlanta Falcons are the biggest favorites of Week 6 when they face the 1-3 Oakland Raiders.

After opening with the Falcons favored by 7.5 points, the line has since inflated to 9.5 points, as the Raiders have to make the dreaded trip across the three time zones. While they had a bye week to prepare for the game, the trip is a long one, and a 1 p.m. ET game is one that West Coast teams have traditionally struggled with. Earlier in the season, the Raiders lost to the Dolphins 35-13 in a game played at 1 p.m. ET in Miami.

The odds makers also expect plenty of points in the game, as the over/under for the game is set at 48, higher than any other game in Week 6. However, even with Atlanta's high-octane offense, the under has been the winning pick in four of their last six games and six of their last nine home games.
