There are five online sportsbooks in Pennsylvania. It’s soon to be six with DraftKings set to get its start to during the week of Nov. 4. However, only FOX Bet uses personalities like Colin Cowherd to make picks.

Each week on The Herd, Cowherd makes his selections followed by a bit of commentary. And, each week we follow all of Cowherd’s picks.

Cowherd likes some games more than others. His favorite jargon includes “like it, I love it” or “this is an easy one.”

So, at the midway point of the season, how is Cowherd doing?

Blazin’5 record for 2019

Cowherd doesn’t have to be perfect on his Blazin’ 5. He only needs three NFL picks to cover for sports bettors to double their money with FOX Bet’s odds boost.

Through eight weeks of the NFL season, Cowherd’s picks are 23-16-1.  Cowherd’s started off the year hot but has since cooled off. During the past three weeks, his record is 5-10. Still, his Blazin’ 5 season is off to a 7-2 start.

Teams Cowherd takes to cover the spread the most:

  • Rams (3-0 ATS)
  • Giants (2-1 ATS)
  • Colts (2-1 ATS)
  • Falcons (1-2 ATS)
