Blazin' 5: Colin Cowherd Gives His Five Best NFL Bets For Week 6
(VIDEO SEGMENT ABOVE)
Week 5 Blazin' 5 record: 2-3
Blazin' 5 season record: 13-12
Ravens at Giants (SPREAD: BAL -6)
“Like it? I LOVE IT. The Ravens are one of two teams – Philly is the other one – that have led by at least ten points in every game. Their offense has been spectacular. Lamar is running, he’s passing; it’s amazing, they don’t spend much money on receivers but they’re top 5 in virtually everything— points, yards, and Big Plays. The Giants are coming off a 14-point comeback win against the Packers and I think they’re bound to come back down a little. Daniel Jones is 29th in the league in yards per game, and 27th in yards per attempt. It was a nice win against Green Bay but I don’t think Green Bay is very good, and I think Baltimore is exceptional. I think the Giants pull back. I love Baltimore in this spot -6. Ravens win 28-20.”
Colin's prediction: Ravens 28, Giants 20.
Colin's pick: Baltimore -6
Jets at Packers (SPREAD: GB -7)
“Jets are off back-to-back wins, 2-0 on the road, I like them here +7. Robert Saleh’s defense is playing hard and with passion, but it’s the rookies the last two drafts who are contributing. Breece Hall, Sauce Gardner, Garett Wilson… They’ve got four different receivers, the only team in the league, with 200+ receiving yards. There’s guys open on EVERY pass for the Jets, guys are WIDE open. What happened to the Packers defense?? I loved it coming into the season but they’ve disappointed everywhere. I think the Jets go in, they’re for real, they’ve got firepower, and they upset Green Bay. This number may go to 7.5, you can bet it up, I’m going to take the Jets with the upset, 28-27.”
Colin's prediction: Jets 28, Packers 27.
Colin's pick: New York +7
49ers at Falcons (SPREAD: SF -5.5)
“I actually think this is going to be a nail biter, Falcons +5.5 is my play. Arthur Smith is a very clever coach, they’re a top 10 scoring offense in the league. Did you know they have 37 Big Plays offensively? And YOU don’t think they have any talent. They’re a top 3 rushing offense, and the Niners are falling apart— Bosa out, Kinlaw out, Armstead out, Emmanuel Moseley out, Jimmy Ward out. Forget Elijah Mitchell and Trent Williams, San Francisco is running out of healthy bodies. I think the Falcons can run it on them, I think the game is quick, it’s a lot of handoffs, they’ll take away Jimmy Garoppolo who watches a lot of it, Niners win close. Even the kicker is out for the Niners. Niners win close but I like the side of Atlanta, 24-23, San Francisco.”
Colin's prediction: 49ers 24, Falcons 23.
Colin's pick: Atlanta +5.5
Buccaneers at Steelers (SPREAD: TB -8.5)
“I’ve got one rune— if you get humiliated in the NFL I almost always take you the following week. I’m taking the Steelers +8.5, it’s a bounce-back spot. You can all bang on Kenny Pickett but last week against Buffalo he had 34 completions in the wind, 327 yards, and three plays over 20 yards. I like Pickett he just got overwhelmed. The Bucs offense is the second-worst running offense in the league so even if Tampa takes a lead they can’t run it and eat the clock. Atlanta had a chance to beat Tampa in the end and Atlanta was dominated by Tampa. Even if Tampa leads, Pittsburgh will get possessions. I like the Steelers a lot here +8.5. The Bucs will win 27-21, but I think it’s a very competitive football game.”
Colin's prediction: Bucs 27, Steelers 21.
Colin's pick: Pittsburgh +8.5
Cardinals at Seahawks (SPREAD: ARI -2.5)
“I don’t even understand this line. Seahawks +2.5 I’ll take all day. The Seahawks are scoring a bunch of points and converting on 48% of third downs, that’s top three in the league. Offensively— points, yards, Big Plays, ALL of it. Meanwhile, the Cardinals are the worst first half team in the league. What does it mean? Division rival, playing behind. Arizona may cover and come back and win but I know this… Seattle will lead, Geno Smith with a lead running the football with an improved offensive line… I haven’t bet the Seahawks in a while, I like them in this spot. I think right now they’re playing great football early in games. They jump out to a lead, the question is if they can hold on because Arizona has been a very good fourth quarter team. I’m going to take the Seahawks 28-23 in the Northwest.”
Colin's prediction: Seahawks 28, Cardinals 23.
Colin's pick: Seattle +2.5
