The 5-0 Atlanta Falcons are a popular choice among NFL experts this week.
At 5-0, the Atlanta Falcons are one of two remaining undefeated teams in the NFL. They host the Oakland Raiders this week and NFL experts from around the country are picking the Falcons to remain undefeated.
Eight NFL experts from CBS Sports pick games both straight up and against the spread. The fact the Falcons are an 8-1/2-point favorite didn't seem to influence their picks much, as all eight CBS analysts picked the Falcons both straight up and against the spread. The Falcons have been a popular choice among CBS analysts, as seven of eight picked them straight up last week.
Jason Cole and Les Carpenter of Yahoo! Sports are also picking the Falcons this week. Cole correctly picked the Falcons in each of their first five games this season, while Carpenter picked against Atlanta in three of its first five games. Mike Silver is yet to submit his pick, but he has also picked Atlanta every game this season.
A few ESPN NFL analysts have not made their picks for Week 6 yet, but of the eight who have, they are all going with Atlanta. Counting CBS Sports' picks against the spread and straight up, all 26 NFL analysts have picked the Falcons to beat the Raiders.
