Sunday revealed some teams' holes and left everyone confused while the Vikings and Patriots rolled merrily along with wins in Week 5. Let’s see what we learned this week in the NFL and talk about a team which may be more dangerous than Baltimore, Houston and Philadelphia as well as and look for a bookie-breaking pick for Week 6.

 

NFL PICKS RECORD: 38-25-0

 Losses on Sunday Reveal Truer Nature of the Ravens, Texans, and Eagles

What we learned in NFL Week 5 is that despite the impressive starts from Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans, and Philadelphia Eagles, these three teams just aren’t even close to being near the NFL’s elite and all three will probably struggle to make the Playoffs. And it’s not just because all three lost on Sunday, to the Patriots, Vikings, and Lions respectively. The Ravens (+4800 to win Super Bowl at BetDSI—an Offshore sportsbook with an A+ grade from Sportsbook Review and which current has a 50% Free Play Bonus (to $300) for new customers)—had one of the softest schedules to begin the NFL Season (BUF-CLE-JAX-OAK-WAS) and have blown their 3-0 start after back-to-back Home Losses to the Raiders and Redskins. Baltimore (3-2 SU, 2-2-1 ATS) has only scored 22 2nd Half points—the Ravens had 0 on Sunday—outside of the 21, it put on the scoreboard in Week 2 against Cleveland. This team is still average at best.

And despite facing the mighty Minnesota Vikings (5-0 SU/ATS) in Minneapolis, Brock Osweiler and the Texans (3-2 SU/ATS) also “aren’t who we thought they were,” although Houston (+1850 to win AFC at Bookmaker) has a much easier schedule on the immediate horizon (IND-DEN-JAX-DET-OAK) than does Baltimore ( NYG-NYJ-PIT-CLE-DAL). Another team who started 3-0 and looked like world beaters were the Eagles (+1100 across the board to win NFC at Bovada), but the Lions played like they do in Detroit—pretty good—and edged Rookie QB Carson Wentz and Philadelphia (3-1 SU/ATS), 24-23 after jumping out to an early 14-0 lead.

 

Falcons, Ryan Send Message to NFL With Win at Denver; Paxton Lynch Is No Trevor Siemian

Denver is one of the hardest places in the NFL to go in and get a win, and the Falcons (4-1 SU/ATS) went into that Altitude and showed it’s not all about Matt Ryan, Julio Jones and the Falcons Offense as the Defense was the real story. So the Falcons (#1 NFL Total Offense) may be the real birds to be watching in the NFL this season, Audubon. After winning outright, 23-16 as 4-point favorites at BetDSI to Denver, the NFL Week 6 predictions include Atlanta that will play in Seattle and will face a gimpy Russell Wilson (Ankle) and the Seahawks on Sunday in a game in which the visitors could very well win, despite playing the second of back-to-back Road games against tough teams in a Time Zone 3 Hours ahead of the Falcons Body Clocks in two of the NFL’s toughest venues (ATL 3-0 ATS L3 series).
