Blazin' 5: Colin Cowherd Gives His Five Best NFL Bets For Week 13 (November 27th) (Full Segment at Bottom of Page)
Colin's 2019 Blazin' 5 Record Through 12 Weeks: 31-27-2 (Last week 3-2)
49ers at Ravens (SPREAD: BAL -5.5)
"I'm taking the Ravens at home. The rest of the league is playing catch up to them offensively right now and it reminds me of the Panthers when the league didn't know how to defend Cam Newton. They're 5-0 against the spread in their last 5 games and blowing GOOD teams out. As good as San Francisco is, they have struggled against mobile quarterbacks. Russell Wilson beat them and Kyler Murray gave them trouble twice. Since Week 8, the Niners are only 27th against the run and I think this could get ugly. I think San Francisco will keep it close but the score will be deceiving. I'll take the Ravens to win 31-24, after the Niners score a late touchdown."
Colin's Pick: Ravens (-5.5)
Redskins at Panthers (SPREAD: CAR -9.5)
"I hate laying big numbers but I'm going to take Carolina -9.5. Veteran head coach, a lot of good players, and they still have an outside shot at a Wild Card spot and they are playing for something. Washington is playing for nothing and I think this is the worst offense I have seen in 5 or 6 years. They won last week but Dwayne Haskins completed only 44% of his throws. They are a MESS and are last in almost everything offensively. They've got nothing to play for, they allow a ton of sacks, and the Panthers are second in the league in sacks. Carolina is a less ferocious version of San Francisco. They get after you and Washington is in BIG TROUBLE. Panthers win easily, 33-20."
Colin's Pick: Panthers (-9.5)
Eagles at Dolphins (SPREAD: PHI -9.5)
"I'm going to bet the number here. I really like the Miami story and they're doing the best job of tanking that they can [possibly do. They play very hard and never quit. I'm taking Miami +9.5 against a traveling Philadelphia team. Philly can't even win at home and they're not going to win on the road convincingly. This is a numbers game. The Eagles are a broken team that are decimated by injuries. They're near the bottom of almost everything offensively since Week 7. Not only are they struggling to score points, but they're also giving the ball away -- 20 giveaways this year. Miami got off to that horrible start, but Miami is 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games. They're back home, they're actually healthy, and they have a ton of fight. Eagles win, but I'm taking the 9.5 with Miami. Eagles 27, Dolphins 23."
Colin's Pick: Dolphins (+9.5)
Rams at Cardinals (SPREAD: LAR-3.0)
"Arizona off a bye, at home, and getting a field goal? I think Arizona is going to WIN this game and I'm taking the Cardinals +3. Arizona had fairly low expectations this year -- rookie quarterback and rookie head coach, so despite their record, their locker room is very positive right now. Arizona has exceeded expectations. The Rams thought Super Bowl and as of Monday night they are DONE with that, and that locker room is not good. What are these teams playing for? Cardinals are coming off a bye, getting healthy, and with a good locker room. After starting 3-0, the Rams are a 3-5 football team. Kyler Murray is getting better. Since Week 5, Murray has 10 touchdowns, one interception, and a 105 passer rating. I hated the Cardinals' offensive line coming into the season, but it's significantly better than the Rams offensive line right now. I think the Cardinals win 27-26."
Colin's Pick: Cardinals (+3.0)
Raiders at Chiefs (SPREAD: KC -9.5)
“I'm going to take the 9.5 with the Raiders. You know my rule. Good teams, with good players, who are playing for something -- after they get destroyed they come back with a bounce back week. It's my bounce back theory. The Raiders still have a good chance to make the playoffs. Oakland was humiliated against the Jets and they're going to button that puppy up and give Kansas City everything they can handle this weekend. The Chiefs defense has struggled the last few weeks and I get one of the better offensive lines in the NFL with Oakland. Give Jon Gruden credit -- they run the football and their offensive line is better. Kansas City is at home and is going to win this game, but that Kansas City defense I just don't trust. I'm picking Chiefs 30, Raiders 27."
Colin's Pick: Raiders (+9.5)
