Week Five Predictions

andy-dalton-nfl-preseason-new-york-giants-cincinnati-bengalsThis past week was another solid one for my predictions as I went over .500 picking both straight up and against the spread. Thanks to C.J. Spiller, I also managed to predict the exact score in the Cowboys/Saints game for a little added bonus. On paper, the slate of games for this Sunday seems to be one full of some very interesting matchups. With it being so early in the season, each of these games is just mounting evidence of what each team is truly capable of in 2015.

Last week: 11-4, Season: 44-19

Last week against the spread: 8-7, Season: 35-28

Game of the weak: Jaguars vs Buccaneers: In recent history, the Jaguars have beaten teams which in return led to the loser getting higher draft positioning. If history repeats itself, the Buccaneers might just want to lie down for this one. A Jaguars win here would also give them the “state title” for 2015 having already beaten the Dolphins. Some more fun facts: Blake Bortles has yet to win a game on the road  and Lovie Smith hasn’t won at home in his tenure with the Buccaneers. Something will have to give.  Jaguars 20 Buccaneers (-3.5) 17

Game of the week: Seahawks vs Bengals: After a rough start, just like that the Seahawks are back at 2-2 in large part due to their defense. However, this week is a huge test as the Bengals have looked very impressive on both sides of the ball recently. Andy Dalton has had the best four game stretch of his career and on defense, Geno Atkins seems to be back to his pre-injury form. The Bengals have received their full share of hype lately and deservingly so. But a win here would probably put the bandwagon over capacity. Seahawks 20 Bengals (-3.5) 24

Bears 23 Chiefs (-9.5) 30

Redskins 17 Falcons (-7.5) 26

Saints 21 Eagles (-5.5) 24

Browns 16 Ravens (-6.5) 21

Rams 20 Packers (-9.5) 30

Bills 23 Titans (+3.5) 17

Cardinals 26 Lions (+3.5) 20

Patriots 34 Cowboys (+8.5) 23

Broncos 24 Raiders (+5.5) 17

49ers 16 Giants (-7.5) 27

Steelers 21 Chargers (-2.5) 27
