Just like that, a quarter of the NFL season has come and gone. Here at Pro Football Network, our motto is “The NFL is fast, but PFN is faster”. The NFL is proving just how fast it is, and with that, we look ahead to our Week 5 NFL picks. Last week was undeniably difficult, with the team posting its first losing effort of the year. We suffered some bad beats, but continue to move forward. Taking a look at the Week 5 NFL spreads, there were quite a few spots that the team liked. We have a big bounce-back card ahead of us, and it all starts with our signature Tommy Teaser!
Week 5 NFL picks: Tommy Teaser (+6.5 points)
Bears +1 & UNDER 47 (-130) risk $26 to win $20
I bet against Chicago last weekend and knew I was doomed the moment Mitchell Trubisky went out in a sling. The Bears offense seems to run smoother under career game manager Chase Daniel. The “Monsters of the Midway” defensive unit has been dominant this season, allowing just 11 points per game, as referenced in Ben Rolfe’s weekly totals report.
Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders have scored a combined 11 points in their last two trips to London. Every single trend points towards the Bears and the under in this game. By teasing the total and the side, I’m just giving myself an added cushion. The cushion might come in handy if the Raiders keep it closer than expected, coming off a big win in Indianapolis last weekend. Tease the Raiders and the under here and maybe even sprinkle some candy on the two in a parlay if you’re feeling froggy.
Vikings, Patriots, and Eagles (-118) risk $40 to win $33.80
