Week six is upon us in the NFL and @marcasbrennan takes a look at what players and teams look set for a good day at the office.

Minnesota Vikings & Seattle Seahawks double @ Evens

Seattle at home is a team that should be added to every accumulator, such is their dominance in Century Link Field. Their two wins this season have come at home and although they welcome an unbeaten Carolina Panthers on Sunday night they should have more than enough to gain the win. Minnesota are slowly building towards being a force to be reckoned with in the NFC. This week they face a Kansas City Chiefs team that will be demoralised after their recent loss to the Bears and are missing their talisman Jamaal Charles. The Vikings are unbeaten at home with both victories coming with winning margins of 10+ points. A banker to start this week's tips.

Carson Palmer over 270.5 passing yards @10/11

Carson Palmer has been on fire this year and there are plenty of reasons why he should have another strong outing against the Steelers. I expect this game to be a close contest with Pittsburgh having enough weapons on offense to ensure Palmer is forced to throw for four quarters and lead his side to a win. With this in mind he will easily surpass the above mark. The Steelers secondary still has many question marks and Palmer has thrown for more than 270 yards in three of his five games to date. The two times he failed to cover that mark was when the Cardinals sauntered to victory, something which will not happen in Heinz Field.

Adrian Peterson over 90.5 rushing yards @ 10/11


It finally looks like both Peterson and the Vikings are fully in tune with each other again after a disappointing opening match. He has been handed the ball 65 times in the past three games and I expect him to receive 20+ carries again which bodes well for him surpassing the above mark. Minnesota are coming off a bye week and that gives Peterson some extra time to have grown more comfortable in Norv Turner's offense. The Chiefs have a good run defence but they are low on confidence and will be up against a incredible runner in Peterson.


Eric Decker over 50.5 receiving yards @ 10/11

The way to beat the Redskins is through the air as they are currently decimated in their secondary. In two of their last three games, wide receivers have enjoyed huge success against them and while this means Brandon Marshall will have a good day it is worth remembering New York's other wideout Eric Decker. He is a good target for Ryan Fitzpatrick and coming off a bye week will help him with recent injury struggles. Decker is averaging just under five catches a game and should have ample opportunity to gain more than 50 receiving yards.

Philip Rivers over 270.5 passing yards @ 10/11


This bet is solely placed on the reason that Philip Rivers will need to play at an extremely high level if the Chargers are to stand any chance of beating Green Bay in their own backyard. Aaron Rodgers is the best QB in the league and he will post numbers which will force the Chargers into throwing the ball and keeping tabs on the NFC champions. Rivers is an excellent quarterback and he has Antonio Gates back to go alongside the outside threat of Keenan Allen. Rivers now has enough weapons to compete and I expect him to do that on Sunday night and will surpass 300 yards.

Calvin Johnson over 75.5 receiving yards @ 10/11

Bears fans will tell you how good Calvin Johnson is having to face him twice a year for the past nine seasons. Megatron tends to play his best against their NFC North rivals and is a different prospect in the comfort of the dome in Detroit, as is Matthew Stafford who was unceremoniously benched last week. Johnson has caught 13 balls in the pair of matches played on home turf this season and he should take that to 20+ catches on Sunday as Stafford will target him early and often against a suspect Bears pass defence.


****It is worth nothing the above player bets can be found in the player props section with certain bookmakers and also be found in player rushing/passing/receiving yards category in each match section.
