Lock City: NFL Week 5 Picks

Arizona Cardinals (4-0) at St. Louis Rams (2-2)

What a miserable game this is.  Its a Thursday nighter so I figured I’d put my two cents in.  Arizona basically has one player on their team and that’s Larry Fitzgerald.  St. Louis runs their offense through their kicker.  The under is set a little low, but I kinda like it.  My stronger play here is the Cards though.  They stay undefeated and cover.

Miggles Pick – Cards – 2.5

Atlanta Falcons (4-0) at Washington Redskins (2-2)

Skins gives up an avg 320 yards a game through the air, which bodes pretty well for the high flying falcons.  RGIII and the up and coming Robert Morris aren’t slouches either and I see this one being a shoot out for sure.  Each of these teams together have avg’d 56 points per game and I don’t see that trend stopping anytime soon.  OVER

Miggles Pick – OVER 50

Baltimore Ravens (3-1) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-3)

Although the Chiefs are tough to play at home, their inability to hold on to the football and the Ravens incredible ability to cause turnovers makes this an easy one for me.  I see this line too low and Ravens cover easily.

Miggles Pick – Ravens -5

Cleveland Browns (0-4) at NY Giants (2-2)

The Browns are pretty bad Weeden is even worse.  That being said I think they fight in this one as they don’t want to drop to 0-5.  A wise person once told me, “the funny thing about betting the NFL, these are all professionals that were at some point drafted and sought after because of their talents.”  This creates the tremendous parody we have in the league today.  The Browns do lose this one, but I don’t think without a fight.

Miggles Pick – Browns +10

Denver Broncos (2-2) at New England Patriots (2-2)

The Pats D keeps Denver in this one and Peyton Manning is  tough to bet against to lose, but to cover 7 points I’ll take it even more and twice on Sundays.  Get it?  Forget it.

Miggles Pick Denver +7
