NFL Week 5 picks Dolphins Chargers cover

We in a bit of a turnaround. 3-2 every week isn't going to win the SuperContest for Team OddsShark, but it is the start of a decent little reverse course in terms of where we were the few weeks prior.This week won't feature a full slate of 'dogs, and it won't feature a full slate of terrible teams either, but there are some options for 'dogs in primetime games, including the (+1) at home against Kansas City and the (+3) against the on Monday Night Football. Both feature rookie quarterbacks, so I'm steering clear for this week. I'll probably regret it later.What I won' Wesley Matthews Jersey t regret is these five bets, which are about to get . Leggo.You can check out all , all of our and yell at me for my . Let's begin our trek out of the creva se and into some winning ways. -5.5 at This pick could look dumb early with this game going down Thursday night. The Patriots are large favorites on the road despite having the worst defense in the . But they also have the best in the NFL and the Buccaneers are mi sing lots of parts on defense. Plus, as I broke down here in greater length, the Patriots have an incredible record against the spread when playing on the road the week after losing a game at home. Under Bill Belichick and with playing, they are 11-1 ATS following a home lo s. They are also 13-0 when Kostas Antetokounmpo Jersey on a short week and playing a team doing the same. This game meets all the criteria. It would be nice if everyone was taking the Bucs, but I'm riding the Patriots. +3.5 at The Chargers are terrible. I get it. They haven't even been good against the spread, going 0-3-1 so far this year. You would think I might be smart enough to move off them at some point. But the Giants aren't good either and are 0-1 against the spread at home this year. The Giants, who have lost three of their first four games on the road, are probably thrilled to be coming home for a game. But the Chargers actually are probably thrilled to get the heck out of California and play anywhere other than StubHub Center, where the stands have been full of opposing fans. That won't change this week, but at least the Bolts can thrive off it instead of being disappointed. and are going to be a bad matchup for the Giants' offensive line, too, although could have a Shaquille O'Neal Jersey big game against this dinged-up secondary. The Chargers will keep it close. -8 vs. The Steelers have not been dominant this year very often. They stumbled on the road against Chicago and they couldn't really close out teams to start the year. Then last week they decided to get going, and boy did he go: Bell carried the ball 35 times and gashed what we believed to be a good defense for 144 yards on the ground. He'll get another test this week, with the Jaguars' talented front seven coming to town and looking to rebound after an embarra sing road lo s to the in overtime last week. The Steelers are a substantially better team at home over the last few Gail Goodrich Jersey years with under center, and they've actually been great about covering the spread as well. According to the , the Steelers are 4-0-1 covering spreads of greater than a touchdown as home favorites since the start of 2015. Pittsburgh is going to get a big "squeaky wheel" game from early and then salt this puppy away with a heavy dose of Bell. +3 vs. This is primarily banking on everyone hating the Dolphins and Miami finally getting a home respite after one of the most brutal travel schedules we've ever seen for an . They were dogged by the weather in Week 1, and electing not to take a bye after a London trip looks like a mistake, even though it was early in the season. It does not look like is going to play, and it would be insane for the Titans to play him. That means is in charge of propping up a terrible Titans defense. This is the breakout game and the first decent outing for . (Caveat: If Hurricane Nate causes this game to move locations, all bets are off. I a sume? That's kind of scary. Be safe, Florida. Go away, hurricanes.) +6.5 vs. Last week we faded my idiotic preseason winner and the 49ers nearly upended the Cardinals in Arizona. That's a bad look for Bruce Arians' squad, and the Cards are struggling against just about everyone these days, particularly in pa s protection. Normally that would be a very bad matchup against the Eagles, who have a dangerous front seven. But , the fulcrum for that unit, is dinged up and looking like he might not play. The Cardinals can expose this secondary by throwing Lonzo Ball Jersey deep but also need to adjust the gameplan to keep upright. can lock down in this spot and and force to target his secondary options. Arizona is also stingy against tight ends, which should limit . I can see an upset here just because no one expects it, but at the very least the Cards will keep this game close. 3-27-138-8 24-23
