Bakin' 5: NFL Week 5 Best Bets

Updated: Oct 9, 2023

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 in order to maximize your chances of getting closing line value.

Cowherd likes the Pittsburgh Steelers +4.5, New Orleans Saints -1, Indianapolis Colts +2.5, Philadelphia Eagles -4.5, and Cincinnati Bengals -3. I like the sides listed below.

NFL Week 5: GB +2.5, NYG/MIA o47.5, PIT +4.5, SF -3.5, NO/NE u40, KC -4, NYJ +2.5, KC -5.5, HOU +3, DET -8.5, NE -1, AZ +8.5, HOU +3.5, JAX +3.5.

Last Week: 10-7 (59%)

2023 Bakin' 5 YTD Record: 37-25-1 (60%)
