2012 NFL Winning Stats Predictor: Game Picks Week 5

Lots of favorites winning, but not necessarily covering the spread this week.

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Last week was finally a good one for the Predictor, going 11-4 Straight Up and 8-6-1 Against the Spread, bringing my season records to 36-27 Straight Up, and 26-34-3 ATS. This week I'm seeing very few upsets, and a lot of extremely close lines, based on the Winning Stats. Usually it's about time that Vegas odds-makers have figured out each team, and lines start becoming harder and harder to beat.

Game Picks for Week 5:

Home Score Away Score Probability
Rams 18 Cardinals 23 63.1%
Bengals 24 Dolphins 22 53.3%
Colts 26 Packers 29 57.9%
Chiefs 21 Ravens 28 68.2%
Vikings 26 Titans 21 63.9%
Redskins 25 Falcons 27 57.2%
Giants 27 Browns 20 67.8%
Steelers 21 Eagles 24 58.3%
Panthers 24 Seahawks 25 50.8%
Jaguars 13 Bears 21 70.2%
Patriots 26 Broncos 22 61.8%
49ers 28 Bills 18 75.1%
Saints 27 Chargers 24 58.4%
Jets 16 Texans 24 71.1%

Top 5 Against the Spread picks (2-3 last week, 7-11-2 season):

  • Colts +7 vs. Packers
  • Redskins +3 vs. Falcons
  • Eagles +3.5 at Steelers
  • Cardinals -1 vs. Rams
  • Ravens -5 at Chiefs
