NFL Picks Week 5: Latest Odds, Predictions, Updates and More

The wild finishes to Week 4 would almost assuredly guarantee upsets.

And while we had a few - Lions, 49ers, Bengals, Titans and Chiefs - the rest of the league's favorites won their Week 4 matchups.

Of the five upsets, only one of the lines (49ers +10) was more than three points.

Even with all the crazy endings, the NFL wasn't monumentally shaken in Week 4.

Week 5 is the first set of bye weeks for the season. The Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Washington Redskins and Baltimore Ravens all have the week off.

This leaves us with three less games to pick from in Week 5, but a number of matchups already jump off the page.

Can the Chiefs actually put together a two-game winning streak with a win over the Colts in Indianapolis?

Is there any way in the world the Vikings can lose a fifth-straight game with the Cardinals coming to town?

Will the Eagles legitimately fall to 1-4 while visiting the Bills?

Are the Jets destined to fall behind in the AFC East with a trip to Foxborough?

Do the Falcons have enough fire power to beat the Packers at home?

And is a home win over the Bears enough for us to consider the Lions a threat to Packers in the NFC North?

These are just some of the things we get to think about for the next week. 

Of the 13 games on tap, 10 already have spreads up. We saw a ton of late line movement this week as kickoff drew near and should expect more of the same with only 13 games to play. Monitor the line movements this week as things are sure to get crazy with less opportunities to play.

Be sure to check back often for all the latest on picks, points, spreads, locks, covers and trends.

And, as always, remember the secret to making great picks: "clear eyes, full hearts, can't lose."
