’21 NFL Pick’em Week 6

7 Rings continue to be the top team in their Pick’Em pool through six weeks of the NFL season. A one-point lead has expanded to three, which means competitors better keep winning and staying pace with the division leaders.

Week six of the 2021 season featured a handful of easy wins and some rather exciting developments. Teams who were favorites lost, and the underdogs prevailed in a handful of critical matchups. 7 Rings produced their best record of the season, going 12-2 with just 14 games on the schedule.

Thursday Night Football

Sunday Afternoon

  • Favorite: Arizona 56%
  • Underdog: @Clevelnd 44%
