NFL Week 5 Picks

After a two week hiatus, we are back with our NFL Picks. Here we go:

SEAHAWKS @ GIANTS

Spread: -9.5

Now I know everyone is hot on the Giants right now with their three straight wins, but 9.5 points favored at home is a lot. But I’ll take the Giants here. Coming home after two dramatic road victories, the Giants have some good momentum. Plus, the Seahawks haven’t been impressive so far. The Giants defense has owned Tavaris Jackson in the past as well. Even though they’re favored by over a touchdown, take the Giants this week. GIANTS

JETS @ PATRIOTS

Spread: -9.5

Everyone has been down on the Jets lately, and why not? Their defense has been terrible in three of their first four games and Sanchez can’t throw a pass for his life. But I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the Jets will not only cover, they will win in Foxboro. Just when everyone counts the Jets down and out, they storm back and shock the world. Just watch, it will happen. JETS

BUCS @ 49ERS

Spread: -2.5

This is an intriguing matchup between two 3-1 teams. Tampa Bay has gotten their season together after getting destroyed in the first week against Detroit at home. San Francisco is coming off a comeback victory in Philadelphia. Since I don’t believe the Buccaneers are for real, I’ll take the Niners at home. I like Harbaugh and their offense is starting to click nicely. Frank Gore is finally healthy and Alex Smith looks like he can start in this league. Take San Fran this week. 49ERS

BEARS @ LIONS

Spread: -5.5

Who ever thought the Lions would be favored against the Bears by over a field goal? Even with the points, I’m going with the Detroit. In Week One, I called that Detroit had a legit football team and I’m staying with them until the lose. Their defense should dominate Chicago with their suspect offensive line. Just like the Bucs, I believe the Bears are one of the most overrated teams in football. Don’t mess with Detroit. LIONS

PACKERS @ FALCONS

Spread: +5.5

The Green Bay Packers are the best team in football. Last year in the playoffs, they destroyed Atlanta on their own turf. But I think the Falcons have found their groove since losing to Chicago in the first game. I believe the Falcons will come back and win this Sunday night in overtime against Green Bay. Just think, crazy things have happened on Sunday Night Football. This week, expect the same. FALCONS
