NFL Week 5 expert picks and predictions

With a quarter of the season finished, bettors have a good idea on who they should tail and fade at Pennsylvania sportsbooks. Experts are ready to roll with their NFL Week 5 picks and predictions.

Ross Tucker and Steve Fezzik continue to dazzle with another winning week. ESPN’s Erin Dolan and Barstool Sports Advisors Dave Portnoy, Dan “Big Cat” Katz and Stu Feiner look to rebound from down weeks. Pat McAfee broke even last week.

Week 5 has plenty of good matchups with the NFL’s only undefeated team, Philadelphia Eagles on the road to face the Cardinals. Two divisional matchups in prime time will garner much of the attention this week. Baltimore hosts Cincinnati on Sunday Night Football and Las Vegas travels to Kansas City for Monday Night Football.
