Bakin' 5: NFL Week 1 Best Bets

Bakin' 5 is my version of Colin Cowherd's Blazin' 5. Every Friday, Cowherd announces his Blazin' 5 picks on his FS1 show, The Herd. The sports media personality selects his five favorite NFL bets of the week. On Bakin' 5, I post 5+ bets that I like. Last year, Bakin' 5 finished 75-50-4 (60%). I don't wait until Sunday to place bets, so search #bakin5 on X if you want to see the bets that I make in real time. You must bet early in the week to get closing line value.

Cowherd likes the Pittsburgh Steelers +2.5, Indianapolis Colts +4.5, New England Patriots +4, Los Angeles Chargers -3, and New York Giants +3.5. I like the 16 sides listed below.

NFL Week 1: SEA -4, MIA +3, HOU +10, GB +3, AZ +6, PIT +3, BUF/NYJ u48, CAR +3, LAR +6, NE +4, CLE +3, LV +3.5, JAX -2.5, TB +7, DAL -1.5, DET +7

My official Twitter thread for Week 1 picks can be found here.

My survivor pick for Week 1 is the Washington Commanders.
