Every year, the leaders in the big Las Vegas sports betting contests produce tremendous records picking games against the point spread over the course of the NFL season. It can even lead them to winning six- or seven-figure prizes when it’s all said and done. For fellow sports betting enthusiasts, the leaders’ picks can provide solid spots to tail.

If you’re looking for free NFL betting picks to follow each weekend in the regular season, then you can look to the leaders of these competitions. Here are the picks made by the contest leaders for Week 6.

Do note that these sports betting contests use contest point spreads that are locked in once released and do not change as regular point spreads might change.
