Blazin' 5: Colin Cowherd Gives His Five Best NFL Bets For Week 6 (10/11)
Colin's 2019 Blazin' 5 Record Through 5 Weeks: 18-6-1 (Last week 4-1)
FULL Segment at Bottom of Page.
Seahawks at Browns (SPREAD: SEA -2.0)
"Eighty percent of the public is on the Seahawks, but I'll take Cleveland +2. Cleveland is a young team and young teams and young people are more of an emotional rollercoaster. They lose, they win, they lose, they win, they lose, and I think they win this week. Cleveland does a lot of things very well. Defensively -- they're tied for sixth in sacks, passing yard allowed they're seventh, and third down percentage allowed they're fifth. This is an excellent Browns defense who gets two of their three best corners back this week and that allows them to add more pressure. Pete Carroll is a great coach but you can throw the ball on this Seattle defense. Outside of Bobby Wagner, this defense is 'learning their way'. This is an easy one for me and I'm going against the public, Cleveland wins 26-24.
Colin's Pick: Browns (+2)
Saints at Jaguars (SPREAD: JAX -2.0)
"LOVE the Jaguars -2. We keep asking the Saints to be in these wild and emotional games with a backup quarterback. That puts stress on a franchise. I like New Orleans a lot but this is the best Jacksonville offense in the franchise's history. Gardner Minshew doesnt turn the ball over, they're averaging 400 yards a game, and Leonard Fournette has arrived, baby! He is third in rushing yards. I think Jacksonville comes home and I think there's a natural letdown for the Saints who have been in these wildly dramatic games. I'll take Jacksonville to win by a field goal, 26-23."
Colin's Pick: Jaguars (-2)
Falcons at Cardinals (SPREAD: ATL -2.5)
"I'm taking Atlanta -2.5. Atlanta isn't playing well but here is the thing: Don't fall in love with Arizona's win over Cincinnati. Cincinnati is inches better than Miami. Last week the Bengals didn't have AJ Green or John Ross and their offensive line is the worst in the league. It was a pop gun high school offense and made the Arizona defense look like world beaters. Atlanta has way better personnel and Arizona's defense is not good. They're bottom 3 or 4 in the NFL in points allowed, yards allowed, and rushing yards allowed; that defense is lousy. Kyler Murray is a great athlete but he's been sacked 21 times, that's how bad Arizona's offensive line is. Matt Ryan is still averaging 330 yards passing a game. I think Atlanta wins 28-23."
Colin's Pick: Falcons (-2.5)
Titans at Broncos (SPREAD: DEN -2.0)
"When Tennessee runs the football, they win, and they're going to run the football here. The Titans are a limited team but they're a clean team and they don't turn the ball over. The Titans have one turnover all year and Marcus Mariota doesn't have any. The next fewest turnovers are the Cardinals with four. The Titans have a +6 turnover differential and Mariota is one of only three quarterbacks in the NFL with at least seven touchdowns and no interceptions. Tennessee is not a great team but they're well-coached, smart, have good line play, and don't make many mistakes. Flacco is the better quarterback in this game but he's more mistake-prone and the weather is going to be bad. I bet on Tennessee a lot, and there are weekends where I'm not sure they're not one of the top two or three best teams in the league. I think they go to Denver and win outright, 22-20."
Colin's Pick: Titans (+2)
Cowboys at Jets (SPREAD: DAL -7.0)
“This line was -8.5 and now it's down to 7. The Jets are the right side to be on here, take the Jets +7. I was told Adam Gase had so little confidence in his third string quarterback that he just hid the playbook. He said what was the point and was not going to unveil their secrets, tricks, and explosive plays with their third string quarterback who can't pull that stuff off. Dallas really only has one half of film to really look at on Sam Darnold. Don't forget the Jets led Buffalo, a very good team, 16-0 in the first game. The Jets are averaging 22 points a game with Sam Darnold starting, and average 11 without him. Darnold completely doubles this offense. The Cowboys are not playing well right now, the offensive line is banged up, receivers aren't totally healthy, and I think Dallas wins the game but I'm betting a number here. Cowboys win 27-24, but I'll take the 7 and the Jets."
Colin's Pick: Jets (+7)
