Office Pool Picks: Week 5

October 5, 2017

The bye weeks have started and that means less games to choose from this week. Add in the fact we are sorting through so many key injuries and that the match-ups are fairly balanced and Week 5 is pretty dicey. Nevertheless, here’s our selections for this week’s Office Pool Picks.

Here are my picks for this week all your favorite office pool formats – Confidence Pool, Survivor and Against the Spread:

14 Eagles vs. ARI
13 Steelers vs. JAC
12 Lions vs. CAR
11 Giants vs. LAC
10 Patriots at TB
09 49ers at IND
08 Titans at MIA
07 Vikings at CHI
06 Bengals vs. BUF
05 Cowboys vs. GB
04 Texans vs. KC
03 Raiders vs. BAL
02 Rams vs. SEA
01 Browns vs. NYJ

Each week I’ll offer up my “playing it safe” and my “out on the limb” pick for your elimination pool:

Playing it safe – Eagles
In a tough week I’ll take my chances with the Eagles at home with Arizona making the trip across the country and playing an early game. Philly’s defense should be able to contain the one-dimensional Arizona offense.

Out on a limb – Giants
Similar to the game above, I’m taking the home team hosting a West Coast team traveling far and playing at 1PM ET. The Giants’ D has been playing well for the most part this season and Eli and the passing game should do well enough to come out on top here.

AGAINST THE SPREAD (10-9 on season)

Pick of the Week
Giants -3.5

Other Plays to Consider
Jaguars +8
Lions -2.5
49ers +1.5
Under 45 PHI/ARI
