NFL 2023 Week 5 Picks

My pick: listed first. Home team: CAPS. Post-game comments, if any, in italics.

Giants +12.5 vs. DOLPHINS ❌ – That’s just a mountain of points.

STEELERS +4.5 vs. Ravens ✅ – Going with my gut on this one, and going against my general rule to put a lot of weight on point differential early in the season. (Baltimore is +41; Pittsburgh an ugly -38.)

Chiefs -3.5 vs. VIKINGS ✅ – I don’t get why this line is so low.

Cowboys +3.5 vs. NINERS ❌ – The series record between the Cowboys and 49ers is 19-19-1.

Season to date (weeks 1-4): 8-13
This week: 2-2
