NFL 2022 Weekly Preview: Week 5

News Content

Welcome to another edition of our Weekly Preview.

Last week, we went 4-1 against the spread to build our overall record to 11-4.

If it wasn’t some terrible kicking in that Iowa State game, we could have been looking at a 5-0 week.

Nonetheless, we are still very confident that we can hit our multi in the upcoming weeks.

We love the slate this week so sit back, relax and enjoy our five winners in five days.

If this is your first time reading our Weekly Preview, we have a winner for each of the five days of football.

This covers the NFL Thursday Night Football, a Friday college football game, a Saturday college football game, a Sunday NFL game and finally the Monday Night Football game to end the week!

With that said, let’s get into the winners for the week!

NFL – Indianapolis Colts @ Denver Broncos

The Indianapolis Colts are a complete mess.

While the Colts have been banged up on defense, news just broke that their star studded running back Jonathan Taylor will be out against the Broncos.

This is a huge loss for the Colts and we expect the Broncos to dominate on Thursday Night.

The Colts have turned the ball over nine times already this season and we expect Matty Ice to have a horrible game on Primetime.

Being a dome quarterback for his whole career, Matt Ryan will struggle in Mile High Stadium against a great Denver pass rush.

We expect multiple turnovers here which will ultimately result in a short field for the Broncos.

Russell Wilson usually shines in Primetime and although he has not looked like the Seattle version of himself so far, we expect a huge performance on Thursday Night Football out of him.

The Broncos offense will look like a completely different unit this week and the Broncos will bounce back after a disappointing game against the Raiders last week.

Take the Broncos and expect them to win by double digits against a Colts team that is just not gelling together as a team.

Selection: Denver Broncos -3.5 @ 1.98

College Football – Nebraska Cornhuskers @ Rutgers Scarlet Knights

The Nebraska Cornhuskers may be the laughing stock of college football but we are going to back them as a road favourite this week.

Last week, the Cornhuskers snapped a 364-day drought and finally beat a Division-1 opponent.

We expect them to build on that momentum and string together two wins against a Rutgers team that is terrible on offense.

We believe that the Cornhuskers have enough fire power on offense to run away with this game.

While Rutgers may keep this close in the first half with some key defensive stops, the Cornhuskers will have a couple explosive plays that will ultimately turn this game in their favour.

The players are fired up for interim coach Mickey Joseph and will play hard for him especially with this game being Nationally Televised.

This was supposed to be a good year for the Cornhuskers and if they have any chance of making a Bowl game, they need to win this game to get their record back up to .500.

Expect a hard fought game with the Cornhuskers not only winning but covering the 3-point spread on Friday night.

Selection: Nebraska Cornhuskers -3 @ 1.92

College Football – Utah Utes @ UCLA Bruins

The Utah Utes are the real deal and we expect them to win the Pac 12 Conference this year.

These next two weeks will determine if our prediction will come true as they need to beat UCLA on the road and then beat USC in Utah next week.

Though a Top 20 matchup is something to get hyped up about, a Top 10 matchup between USC and Utah will be a huge game for the Pac 12 and college football fans nationwide.

Therefore, we believe that the Utes will take care of business and beat the Bruins on Saturday. The Utes have a few key advantages in this game.

First off, their two tight end sets will be a nightmare for UCLA’s defence.

Second, there isn’t much of a home field advantage for the Bruins as their games aren’t even 50 percent filled to capacity.

Take last week as an example. It was a big Friday night game with ranked #15 Washington coming into town.

The stadium was still 53 percent empty and that was a Friday night!

With this game being played in the afternoon on Saturday, we wouldn’t be shocked if the crowd was split 50/50.

Therefore, with no home field advantage and the Bruins coming off a Top 15 victory last week, we expect Utah to come in and get the job done.

Utah has already played in the Swamp this year so we expect them to be battle tested on the road.

Look for Utah to easily cover this 3.5 point spread this week.

We expect a double digit victory with this game not being close at all. Utah will dominate on both sides of the ball and will go into their Top 10 matchup next week with USC with a boat load of confidence.

Selection: Utah Utes -3.5 @ 1.90

NFL – Atlanta Falcons @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady is 10-0 against the Atlanta Falcons.

The Buccaneers are 0-2 at home this year and if they lose to the Falcons on Sunday they will be 0-3.

We believe this will be a complete blowout and the Buccaneers will snap their two game losing streak and demolish these Atlanta Falcons.

With all the off field controversy surrounding divorce lawyers for TB12, we believe that he will take his frustration out on this Atlanta secondary.

We wouldn’t be surprised to see Brady throw for 5 touchdowns on Sunday.

This should be an absolute blowout so laying 8, 8.5, 9 or 9.5 should be very safe.

We are expecting a double digit victory here for the Buccaneers before they head on the road for two games.

While all the Falcons games have been close this year, this one shouldn’t.

At 2-2, we expect the Falcons to fall back down to reality and lose their next 3 games.

Take the Buccaneers and feel very confident laying anything under 10 at home.

Selection: Tampa Bay Buccaneers -8.5 @ 1.89

NFL – Las Vegas Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs

Are you ready for some Monday Night Football?

The Las Vegas Raiders go into Arrowhead Stadium to take on Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs looked quite impressive last week scoring 41 points on the tough Tampa Bay Buccaneers defence.

While we usually pick against the spread, we are going an alternate route for this game and taking the over/under.

While many people would expect a high scoring game as the Chiefs average 32.3 points per game, we are expecting things to slow down on Monday Night.

Last year, the Chiefs demolished the Raiders both times they met with a combined score of 89-23.

The game in Arrowhead last year was a 48-9 beat down that was 35-3 going into half.

We expect that the Raiders will do everything they can possibly do to keep their offense on the field this game.

Therefore, we recommend taking the Under 51.5 in this game.

Expect slow, methodical drives for the Raiders that end up in field goals.

The Chiefs will definitely be able to score, but we expect a closer than expected game that bogs down in the fourth quarter.

We’re expecting something in the 26-20 range which will fall under 51.5.

While most people are hoping for fireworks on Monday Night football with these two high scoring offenses, expect the complete opposite.

Take the under 51.5 and feel quite confident with this selection!

Selection: Under 51.5 @ 1.84

For the past two weeks, our multi has gone 4-1.

We are still very confident that we will hit our multi before Halloween.

Therefore, take this multi which pays 25/1 and expect a great week of football.

Best of luck!
