The computers have correctly predicted 62% of the NFL games — here are their picks for Week 6

The NFL season is now in Week 6, and the computers are picking their winners for every game.

We took a look at two popular systems used to pick NFL games: Cortana, Microsoft's digital assistant, and Elo, the modeling system used by Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight.

In both cases, the computers are picking outright winners and not against the spread. However, each gives a likelihood of a team's winning, which, in theory, could help measure the strength of certain lines.

The two models struggled in Week 5 with a number of upsets in the NFL. ELO went 8-6 and has the overall lead at 49-28 (64%). Cortana went 7-7 and is two games back at 46-31 (60%) overall.

Here are the picks for Week 6, with each model's percent chance of winning in parentheses. Games in bold are where the two models disagree on who has the best chance to win. Point spreads are just for reference, via Vegas Insider as of Thursday morning.
