Lots of anger with players and teams coming into Week 5. Players coming off suspensions (Tom Brady, Marcell Dareus, DeMarcus Lawrence), teams frustrated with their seasons (Chargers, Colts) and pundits like me getting a few bad beats.

Our NFL Week 5 Picks we take into account a few of the angry individuals and teams plus sprinkle a live home dog.

LEANS (2-2)

Pinnacle Odds: NY Jets +7.5 vs Pittsburgh Steelers -7.5 Total 48 

Under 48  Both defences have been playing uncharacteristically porous of late, but we think this one will be an old style smash mouth football leading to a low scoring affair.

Pinnacle Odds: Philadelphia Eagles -3.5 vs Detroit Lions +3.5 Total 46 

Lions +3.5 The Eagles are the darling of the NFL with rookie QB Wentz leading jersey sales in philly, but the Lions are a live home dog here. Detroit may be 1-3, but they have been competitive in all four games.

PLAYS (3-3)

Pinnacle Odds: Cincinnati Bengals -2 vs Dallas Cowboys +2 Total 45

Bengals -2  Cowboys have been impressive with Prescott at the controls, but this will be his first test against a top 10 defense and AJ Green is going to have a field day with Dallas’ D.

Pinnacle Odds: New England Patriots -10 at Cleveland Browns +10 Total 46.5 

Patriots -10 No one or team is angrier than the Patriots and Tom Brady. This line should be -13, -14. My sympathy to the Browns


Pinnacle Odds: San Diego Chargers +3.5 at Oakland Raiders +3.5 Total 49 

Chargers +3.5  Raiders come home after two great back to back road victories being 3-1 while the Chargers are
