NFL 'Expert' Picks Week 6: ROTB Picks Against The Spread For Rest Of Schedule

We already made our picks against the spread for the Sunday morning games. If you want to see how you do against the spread -- again, this is different than the ROTB Pick'em deal we already have, join in on the SB Nation Arizona weekly contest which you can join here (ID: 55411, PW: arizona).

As for the rest of the games, see what we have picked and feel free to mock if you like. 

Cleveland Browns at Oakland Raiders (-6.5): The Browns have won even of the last nine contests between these two teams. Obviously Oakland is having a great year. It would not be surprising, though, to have a letdown after an emotional victory over the Texans. Pick: Browns +6.5.

Houston Texans at Baltimore Ravens (-7.5): There are more than a few that believe that the Ravens are not all they think they are. Their defense has dominated against teams with bad offensive lines. On the other hand, Matt Schaub has yet to show he is a winning quarterback. Playing on the road without Andre Johnson will be too much for the Texans. Pick: Baltimore -7.5.

Dallas Cowboys at New England Patriots (-7): New England sure can score points, but their defense is horrendous. Dallas has not had a game decided by less than four points. Expect a close game. Pick: Dallas +7.

New Orleans Saints (-4.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Drew Brees and the Saints will be the toughest challenge yet this season for the young Bucs. New Orleans' only loss was opening night against the Packers, who look unstoppable right now. Josh Freeman won't be able to pull off any late comeback this week. Pick: Saints -4.5.

Chicago Bears (-3) at Minnesota Vikings: Minnesota was able to look amazing in the first quarter against the Arizona Cardinals when they put up 28 points, but outside of that they were not very impressive. Donovan McNabb continues to look terrible. While the Vikings can rush the passer, Jay Cutler is much more poised than Kevin Kolb in the pocket and can still deliver big throws. He will do so against a weak Minny secondary. Pick: Chicago -3.

Miami Dolphins at New York Jets (-7): The Jets finally get back home after a brutal road start. Miami, after having lost Chad Henne for the season, is in for a beating. The Jets defense is going to be fired up and Mark Sanchez will be happy to be home again. This is not going to be pretty for the Dolphins. Pick: Jets -7.
