2020-21 NFL Picks: Week 5

Welcome to Week 5 of the NFL Season!

The favorite is marked with the spread in parenthesis next to the team name. For example, Patriots (-6.5). The best bet is the team that I feel is most likely to win and cover the spread this week. The spreads are from the ESPN Pigskin Pick’em Challenge and may be slightly different than the spread available when you are reading this.

Without further adieu, here are my picks:

King of the Hill aka Lock of the Week aka Survivor Pool Picks:
In this section, I will post my pick for a survivor pool. Once a team is used, I can’t use them again for the rest of the season. The team selected only has to win the game, not cover the spread. Pick One and Pick Two are independent of each other. If I use a team with Picks One, I can use them later with Pick Two.

Week Pick One Pick Two
Week 1 Colts – loss Bills – win
Week 2 Cards – win Steelers – win
Week 3 Browns – win Colts – win
Week 4 Packers – win Rams – win
Week 5 Steelers – win Ravens – win
