Last week did not go well for most of our experts. It is said that agreement among experts is usually a good thing, but that was not the case for our "experts." We went a disastrous 0-6 when we were all in agreement. Ouch. Brian and Zac put up clunkers, Tom was mediocre and Al was the only one to finish about .500.
Week 5 Results:
Anyway, on to this week's games. All lines are courtesy of VegasInsider.com as of Wednesday, Oct. 8.
Thursday Night: Indianapolis (+2.5) at Houston
Tom Downey: Indianapolis
Brian Rauf: Indianapolis
Al King: Indianpolis
Zac Bellman: Indianapolis
Oh boy. Another consensus. Hopefully this week we get at least one unanimous decision correct. UPDATE: We got one right!
Denver (-8) at NY Jets
Tom: NY Jets
Tom ruined the consensus, although he does think the Broncos still win. The line opened at -4.5 in favor of the Broncos, but has gone up to -9.5 as of Friday.
Pittsburgh (+2) at Cleveland:
Only Brian thinks the Browns can win and cover. The line opened at -1 in favor of the Browns.
Jacksonville (+6) at Tennessee:
The line opened at -7 in favor of the Titans and we are split this week.
Chicago (+3) at Atlanta:
Another 50-50 split in this matchup. The line opened at -3 in favor of the Falcons and stayed there.
Green Bay (-3) at Miami:
Tom: Green Bay
Brian: Green Bay
Al: Green Bay
Zac: Green Bay
We all agree here. Our experts clearly trust Aaron Rodgers.
Detroit (-1.5) at Minnesota:
The line opened with the Lions favored by 2.5, but the loss of Calvin Johnson has flipped the line to -1 in favor of the Vikings. Our experts are split.
Carolina (+7) at Cincinnati:
The loss of A.J. Green this week hasn't affected the spread movement too much. However, everyone but Al thinks the Panthers will at least be able to cover.
New England (-3) at Buffalo:
Brian: New England
Al: New England
Zac: New England
The Pats are riding high after a big win over the Bengals. Tom thinks the Bills will at least cover though.
Baltimore (-3) at Tampa Bay:
The line opened at -1 in favor of the Ravens and has gone up -3.5. All of our experts like the Ravens this week.
San Diego (-7) at Oakland:
Tom: San Diego
Brian: San Diego
Al: San Diego
Zac: San Diego
We clearly don't believe in the Raiders.
Dallas (+8) at Seattle:
We're split with this one. Tom and Zac are rolling with Seattle, while Brian and Al are picking Dallas.
Washington (+3.5) at Cardinals:
Another split, with Tom and Al picking the Cardinals despite uncertainty at the QB position. This line has dropped after opening at -6 in favor of the Cardinals.
NY Giants (+3) at Philadelphia:
Zac: NY Giants
Everyone but Zac is rolling with the Eagles this week.
San Francisco (-3) at St. Louis:
Our final game of the week is a unanimous one.Back to the NFL Newsfeed
