Blazin' 5: Colin Cowherd Gives His Five Best NFL Bets For Week 10 (Nov. 8) (Full Segment at Bottom of Page)
Colin's 2019 Blazin' 5 Record Through 8 Weeks: 24-20-1 (Last week 1-4)
Giants vs. Jets (SPREAD: NYG -3.0)
"This is a 'bet the number' game. It's two bad teams playing in the same stadium, so why wouldn't you take the Jets and the points?? The Giants are on a five game losing streak and Daniel Jones has lost all his confidence. Don't go crazy on Sam Darnold, he was 27 of 39 last week and had one ugly pick but he MOVED THE BALL. He doesn't feel bad about himself and played pretty well last week except a terrible pick. Since Week 5 the Giants are a mess and are last in everything, including points allowed and yards per play. They've allowed 30+ points in five games this year and only Tampa has allowed more. The Giants lead the NFL in turnovers, it's terrible! I get a field goal, the better quarterback, no home-field advantage, and the Giants can't stop anybody. I'll take the Jets to win, 30-24."
Colin's Pick: Jets (+3)
Cardinals at Buccaneers (SPREAD: TB -5.0)
"Like it? I LOVE IT. Arizona +5. I think Arizona is the better team and played a really, really tough schedule. They're 3-5-1, but all of their losses are against teams currently .500 or better. Arizona is a tough out, and despite having a rookie quarterback, rookie head coach, and bad offensive line, they have the fewest turnovers in the NFL at four. That's less than New England! Kyler doesn't have a pick in his last 172 pass attempts, the longest active streak in the NFL. Tampa has the worst pass defense in the league. They've have a brutal schedule where they've been on the road all month, and I get Arizona with ten days rest. I think Arizona wins, 28-26."
Colin's Pick: Cardinals (+5)
Panthers at Packers (SPREAD: GB -4.5)
"You know how I feel about Carolina. Green Bay is good but flawed. Carolina, similarly is good and average at quarterback but I get 4.5 points. I like the number and I'm taking Carolina. Carolina leads the NFL with 34 sacks. You saw what the Chargers defense did to the Green Bay offensive line, right? Carolina is going to get pressure. The Packers have the youngest defense in the NFL and has dropped off from its impressive start. They're giving up over 26 points a game the past six games, including 410 yards allowed on average. It's been EXPOSED. It's good and opportunistic but it's not special. Kyle Allen has been exceptional in the red zone because he has Christian McCaffrey, Greg Olsen, and two good receivers. This is too many points and I think the Panthers COVER. I give Green Bay a close win, but I'll take Carolina and points ALL DAY."
Colin's Pick: Panthers (+4.5)
Rams at Steelers (SPREAD: LAR -4.0)
"This is another bet I LOVE. I'll take the Rams -4. Sean McVay has had his way with the weaker AFC. Outside of Bill Belichick in the Super Bowl he's 10-0. The Rams are coming off a bye and their offensive line is a little healthier. Since the acquisition of Jalen Ramsey the Rams have been a Top 5 defense in the NFL. Jared Goff's November numbers the last few years are all-time stuff. The Rams are on a two-game winning streak and held both of their opponents to just 10 points each. The Steelers are struggling on a backup running back and Mason Rudolph has a popgun arm. I'll like the Rams to win, 28-20, and I'm swallowing the four points.
Colin's Pick: Rams (-4)
Seahawks at 49ers (SPREAD: SF -6.5)
“I may be from Seattle, but I like the 49ers -6.5. The Seahawks defense is Bobby Wagner and Bondo. Seattle's defense is near the bottom of the league in total defense and pass defense. They've become incredibly Russell Wilson dependent and that's why I'd make him my MVP. The 49ers defense is ranked number one in total defense, pass defense, and red zone defense. They're also getting BOTH their tackles back, Joe Staley and Mike Mcglinchey, and also their FULLBACK to lead their running game. 49ers will win by more than a touchdown, 31-23."
Colin's Pick: 49ers (-6.5)
