NFL: Contrasting fortunes expected for Wembley returnees

| 11.10.2014

The Gridiron gang are back for NFL Gameweek Six, with defeats last time out for the Arizona Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals leaving no team unbeaten so far in 2014/15.  

Here’s our ritual acca, which will multiply stakes at 11/1 if all come in.

Green Bay Packers -3 to beat Miami Dolphins @ 20/23

Following last season’s September Wembley fixture between the Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers, the victorious midwesterners took a 35-10 thumping at home to the Carolina Panthers.

Miami are taken to suffer a third defeat in five 2014/15 matches after downing the Oakland Raiders in north-west London, with Green Bay expected to overcome a three-point handicap after winning their last two matches.

Oakland Raiders +7 to beat San Diego Chargers @ 10/11

Going by the same Trans-Atlantic omens, the Raiders should finally come close to a first win of the campaign when their California brethren visit County Coliseum.

The Pittsburgh Steelers arrived back in the States this time last year with a 0-4 record for the season, before seeing off the New York Jets 19-6 in the Big Apple.

San Diego look strong, having won their last four games, but only one of their away fixtures so far this term have brought victory, so bank on Oakland keeping it close.

Buffalo Bills +3 to beat New England Patriots @ 4/5

Tom Brady and co may boast healthy 3-2 figures for the campaign so far, but they’ve not been great away from home.

An opening day loss in Miami was followed by the thumping of a poor Vikings side in Minnesota next time out on the road, before Kansas City Chiefs put 41 on the scoreboard for the Patriots’ paltry 14 at Arrowhead Stadium.

Buffalo have already beaten the Dolphins by 19 points at home this term, which rates a decent line of form against Brady’s boys.

Carolina Panthers +7 to beat Cincinnati Bengals @ 20/23

The Panthers’ inconsistency so far this term makes them something of an imponderable from a betting perspective, with successive wins followed by successive defeats over the first four gameweeks, before victory last time out at home to the Chicago Bears.

Cincinnati may be 3-1 for the season, but due to their bye week and a 43-17 thrashing in New England last time out, they haven’t tasted success since mid-September.

Get behind Carolina to catch them cold.
