Written by ABC AUDIO ALL RIGHTS RESERVED on October 14, 2022
The Minnesota Vikings survived a late charge from the Chicago Bears to improve to 4-1 last week. Now, they’ll head to Miami to take on a Dolphins squad with quarterback issues. Teddy Bridgewater and Tua Tagovailoa had to leave the last two games because of the concussion protocol and both will have to earn their way out to be eligible to play on Sunday. If you’re making NFL office pool picks, chances are you’ll have to wait until later in the week before you make your Week 6 NFL picks for Vikings vs. Dolphins.
Minnesota is a three-point road favorite in the Week 6 NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook, but the line could swing based on who Miami puts out at quarterback. Meanwhile, the Rams are favored by 10.5 over the Panthers, who just fired head coach Matt Rhule after a1-4 start.

Top Week 6 NFL office pool predictions
One of the top Week 6 NFL predictions from the model: The San Francisco 49ers earn a comfortable nine-point win on the road against the Atlanta Falcons. San Francisco improved to 3-2 on the season with a dominant win over Carolina and will now take on another NFC South opponent on the road. Atlanta lost a nail-biter against the Buccaneers last week to drop to 2-3.
The defense has been the constant for the 49ers, who rank No. 1 in the NFL in points allowed and yards allowed. Nick Bosa has six sacks and 16 quarterback hits in his first five games and could feast against an Atlanta offensive line that ranks eighth in adjusted sack rate allowed (8.9%).
Falcons quarterback Marcus Mariota is completing just 57.7 percent of his passes with four touchdowns and four interceptions while also fumbling seven times. The model is predicting that San Francisco finishes with three sacks and forces two turnovers on average, helping the 49ers win outright in over 70%of simulations while covering the 5.5-point spread nearly 60% of the time.
