Denver Broncos (+10) over NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
I do know we’re not presupposed to go in opposition to Invoice Belichick off a loss (but it surely’s 2020, and the outdated guidelines don’t at all times apply) and Cam Newton is again, however the Patriots nonetheless shouldn’t be double-digit favorites right here. Beginning QB Drew Lock could be again for the Broncos in addition to RB Phillip Lindsay, TE Noah Fant and CB A.J. Bouye. If Brett Rypien will get the decision at QB, he did rip up the Jets in a 37-28 win in Week four’s Thursday night time recreation. Gimme the beneficiant factors!
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (+7.5) over Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens just about have cruised of their 4 wins (shedding solely to the defending-champion Chiefs), in order that makes them scary to fade. Nevertheless, the Eagles got here via for us in Week four with their upset of the 49ers and will have coated in opposition to the Steelers in Week 5, in order that they’re higher than their 1-Three-1 report. Frankly, they’re higher than the groups the Ravens have been dominating (with the potential exception of the Browns in Week 1) and must be aggressive sufficient to remain inside a landing.
Final week: 2-Zero, Browns (W), Dolphins (W).
2020 season: Three-6-1.
