Calvin Ridley and the 1-5 Falcons might be a drain on the NFC South standings, but they're certainly bankable for money-line investors. Through six games, Atlanta has helped post weekly averages of 53.5 combined points.

BATSBY Sports offers its 15 most appealing picks for the upcoming football weekend.

For what it’s worth, BATSBY Sports went 5-3 with last week’s NFL picks … and 4-3 with college action; and as you can see below, we’ve been remarkably consistent every weekend (five consecutive weeks of winning selections).

It’s almost spooky … in a very profitable way.

SEPT. 13-16 … 9-6 overall
SEPT. 20-23 … 9-6 overall
SEPT. 27-30 … 9-6 overall
OCT. 4-7 ….…. 9-6 overall
OCT. 11-14 …. 9-6 overall
