Week 5 was a weird week for gamblers. A lot of 1:00 games forced us to jam all of our picks into one slot. This week, it is a little different, a good spread of games, with even a 9:30 AM ET game to get the day going.
As usual, I LOVE the board this week. Here are my favorite picks:
Pick: Patriots -17 (vs. NY Giants) *TNF
I absolutely love this pick. The Patriots have covered a good portion of their games this year, and I will ALWAYS take Bill Belichick against a rookie QB.
Pick: Ravens -11 (vs. Cincinnati Bengals)
Lamar Jackson is the key to this bet. If he can correct his mistakes from last week, the Ravens should cover with ease at home. The Bengals have looked pretty terrible, and cant even beat bad teams.
Pick: Titans +1.5 (at Denver Broncos)
Titans looked pretty awful last week, but they seemingly always cover when they are an underdog. Denver looked sharp, but I don’t see them keeping that same play up this week. I would even go as far as saying this is a lock.
Pick: Packers -3.5 (vs. Detroit Lions) *MNF
I actually love the Lions this year. I think they have a lot of talent and Matt Patricia is becoming a good head coach. But, no way in hell am I picking against the Packers after last weeks beatdown of the Cowboys.
Pick: Eagles @ Minnesota (Over 45)
Looking at all the overs, this is the only one I actually really liked. Whenever the media hypes up a defensive battle, we usually get the opposite. Eagles secondary is banged up and the Vikings offense looked great last week, albeit against the Giants.
2019 season overall: 11-9 (55.0%)
I will continue to update every post with my record.
Gamble on, folks.
