NFL Week 6 best bets: One wager to make for every team

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Panthers: Bryce Young UNDER 0.5 interceptions thrown (+130)

Not only have the Panthers recently tried to simplify the offense for him, but Young is coming off a two-pick performance against the Detroit Lions. So, hoping that he won’t throw at least another this Sunday is a bit of risky business. The rookie, however, finished that Week 5 loss with a strong and accurate fourth quarter, completing nine of his 12 throws for 101 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Plus, he’s set to face a pass defense that’s allowed the sixth-highest completion percentage (71.2) and has recorded just two interceptions over five games. Anthony Rizzuti, Panthers Wire

Dolphins: Adam Thielen OVER 56.5 receiving yards (-115)

While Vic Fangio’s defensive unit has had some strong performances this year, they’re still giving up yardage to opposing team’s top options. Last week, they allowed 86 yards to Darren Waller. The week prior it was 120 yards to Stefon Diggs. In the first three games, Keenan Allen went for 76, Devante Parker had 57 and Coutland Sutton recorded 91.

As for Thielen, he’s gone over 56.5 in his last three appearances, recording 107 in Week 5, 76 in Week 4 and 145 in Week 3.

Miami may keep the Panthers out of the end zone, but they’ll allow gains with some regularity.
