MINTY BETS: Welcome to "Mad Bets," everyone. NFL Week Six upon us. And it is time for our best bets this week. Let's begin with Mr. Jared Quay. What is your best bet this week?

JARED QUAY: My best bet is that I'm happy that we made it six weeks. No one knows how far this NFL season is going to go. But know that we're here, I've found out what teams are good and what teams are really, really bad. And I'm betting against a really, really bad team here in the Jacksonville Jaguars. All right? I'm taking the Lions, minus 3.5. Not because the Lions are great. But because the Jags are just that bad. They made history. They're the first team to lose three consecutive weeks to winless teams. They're basically giving teams better draft spots than them. And I think they're going to give the Lions here one. I like the Lions offense. And the Jags are the one of the most injured teams. They didn't have Josh Allen or Myles Jack last week. And even DJ Chark's kind of showing some injuries here. So, come on, let's go Lions. Lions by 7.

MINTY BETS: Oh, my God. Lions by 7. Jeez. OK. And, Matt, what's your pick?

MATT GOTHARD: Gotta get that alternate line, Jared.

JARED QUAY: Yeah. I might. I might.

MATT GOTHARD: Gotta get that extra payout, you know?

JARED QUAY: I might.

MATT GOTHARD: I'm keeping it in the NFC North, man. Everybody says I'm crazy for loving the Green Bay Packers. But they're 4-0 against the spread. They said I was crazy when they played the Vikings. They said I was crazy when they played the Saints. And now they're going to say I'm crazy when they're playing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But 1.5 is not enough for Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers is about to blow the Bucs out of the water. Tom Brady, he doesn't even know what down it is. They're going to be on fourth down quite a bit in this game coming up. I'm all over the Packers this week.

MINTY BETS: Ooh. Shots fired. Yes, Matt, we know you love those Midwest teams. All right. Now, my best bet is going to be the Cincinnati Bengals, plus 8, against the Indianapolis Colts. I know this is an ugly dog. But Cincy is 3-1-1 against the spread. They haven't lost by more than 7 points, except for last week against the Ravens. But that was against the Ravens. And the Colts, I think, are a little overvalued here. I mean, minus 8 points. I can see this getting bet all the way down to Cincinnati, plus 7, by kickoff. I would still bet it at plus 7. But any lower than that, I wouldn't take it. I think Cincy can cover the 8 points here.

MATT GOTHARD: Are you touching the moneyline?

MINTY BETS: You know what? Yeah. You know what? I'll sprinkle a little on the money line, too. Let's put that in. Let's put that in.
