We started off week 4 with 1526 entries, we lost 572 of them, so 954 participants remaining for week 5. Last week, my pick of the Packers won easily. This week there is no double digit favorite on the board and with some teams on their bye week we have less games to choose from.


  1. Pittsburgh Steelers

They will be the most picked team for sure this week. The Jaguars have a superb defense, but that won’t be enough to pull the upset here. Too much firepower on offense for the Steelers.

  1. Philadelphia Eagles

Not super confident about this pick. Yes, the Eagles should win, but I expect a closer game than most. The Cardinals looks very average since the start of the season, but who knows, maybe they steal one this week, but I don’t see it happening.

  1. Kansas City Chiefs

Yes, Houston looked unstoppable last Sunday, but the Chiefs are 4-0 and are the best team in the AFC so far this season. I see them winning by 7+. Only reason I didn’t take them this week= Road team.

Week 1 Texans

Week 2 Raiders

Week 3 Patriots

Week 4 Packers

Week 5 Steelers
