NFL Picks Week 5

The opening NFL odds for week 5 had a few lines that made some eyebrows raise. NFC Super bowl contender Seattle is listed at short -2.5 “chalk” on the road against Andrew Luck and the Colts. The suddenly for real Detroit Lions are getting +7.5 in a divisional battle at Green Bay. The Patriots are also commanding lots of attention at pick’em playing at Chicago with 85% of the early NFL picks week 5 on the Pats.

NFL Picks Week 5 Analysis: The above mentioned teams appearing to get favorable lines have an angle that is making our experts fade them. Seattle will be playing a game at 10 AM on their players time clocks. Green Bay is coming off a bye week with an angry Aaron Rodgers coming off a loss.  The Tennessee Titans have been one of the NFL’s biggest surprises in large part to the improved play of young QB Jake Lockler. Now that Lockler is done, Tennessee could find itself on the losing end of some tail-whippings with interception machine Ryan Fitzpatrick piloting the offense. Kansas City is balanced on both sides of the ball and have an elite running in back in Jamaal Charles to quiet the crowd noise in Tennessee. Play the Chiefs at -2.5 on the spread to cover.

Denver is in a class all by themselves this season with QB Peyton Manning likely to receive the MVP award his second year in a row. The very “public” Dallas Cowboys are banged up with starters WR Miles Austin, LB Justin Durant and All-Pro OLB Demarcus Ware all listed as questionable. Play a Denver team excelling in all three phases of the game to dominate in D town at -7.

As bad as Jacksonville has been there is no way the St. Louis Rams should be laying double-digits to any team. The Rams are last statistically in almost every category on both offense and defense. A Jags team with heart and an All-Pro RB in Maurice-Jones Drew should keep it close. Play Jacksonville +12.5.

NFL Picks Week 5 Plays: Chiefs -2.5, Denver -7, Jacksonville +12.5
