Six Picks against the Week 5 NFL spread

Good afternoon, Bears fans! Welcome back to another episode of Six Picks, a series where I’ll go through my favorite spread matchups every weekend and explain my reasoning surrounding each pick. It should be a fun way to talk about all sorts of NFL teams and (hopefully) make some money while we’re at it.... or at least all you non-Texans can.

Clearly hubris doomed me last week as I launched this series to an underwhelming 1-4 start (1-5 if you count the Patriots game), but this weekend I’m feeling better — I stayed away from zany ideas like trusting Matt Patricia (though the Lions’ 21-7 start had me hopeful!) and picked a few more home teams, as sometimes home field really can make all the difference (See Chicago on Thursday Night).

Check out the video and let me know what you think!

How do you feel about this week’s picks?
