Colin Cowherd’s 2021 Week 5 NFL picks

The Herd with Colin Cowherd is a sports talk radio show on Fox Sports Radio and Fox Sports 1. Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 airs Fridays on The Herd at 1 p.m. EST.

Los Angeles Rams (-2.5) vs. Seattle Seahawks

Colin’s pick: Rams

Colin’s final score: Rams 34, Seahawks 27

Cowherd said:

“The Rams under McVay are great after a loss (15-5). Seattle is not an efficient team. They have the lowest time-of-possession in the NFL and the fewest plays. You have a sputtering offense that can fool people because of the big plays from Russell Wilson. I think the Rams control the clock and quiet the crowd.”

Actual final score: Rams 26, Seahawks 17

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Carolina Panthers (-3)

Colin’s pick: Panthers

Colin’s final score: Panthers 27, Eagles 20

Cowherd said:

“I like the number a lot. Sam Darnold didn’t play great against the Cowboys but he has been wildly  productive. Christian McCaffrey looks like he will play. The Panthers defense is the story. They have been excellent this year and I feel they will be embarrased by their perfomance last week. The Eagles have lost three straight and their defense is falling apart. Their defense has allowed 40+ in back-to-back games and the Eagles is o-line is missing four starters.”

Actual final score: Eagles 21, Panthers 18

Did Cowherd win? No

Green Bay Packers vs. Cincinnati Bengals (+3)

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Bengals 28, Packers 27

Cowherd said:

“Upset alert. I’m betting Bengals moneyline. Joe Burrow has won back-to-back games for the first time in his career. Notice the protection. Sacked just once over the last two weeks. He’s really blossomed. All his numbers are exceptional. Ja’Marr Chase is another Bengal draft pick on the offensive side that has hit. The Bengals defenae is top ten in sacks. Green Bay’s Red Zone defense has been awful. Upset. Bengals biggest win in years.”

Actual final score: Packers 25, Bengals 22

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Miami Dolpins (+10) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Colin’s pick: Dophins

Colin’s final score: Buccaneers 24, Dolphins 20

Cowherd said:

“Tampa is not good enough. Gronk is out. Brady didn’t play well last week without him. Three of their top four cornerbacks are out. They are banged up on the back end. This defense is not playing well. Last in the league for pass ypg. allowed. Tied for last for pass TD allowed. They are not getting a pass rush. The Dolpins have 34 quarterback hits this year – second most in the league. Tampa wins but I think it’s ugly and played between the 20s.”

Actual final score: Buccaneers 45, Dolphins 17

Did Cowherd win? No

Cleveland Browns (+2.5) vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Colin’s pick: Browns

Colin’s final score: Browns 27, Chargers 26

Cowherd said:

“This is a value pick. Cleveland played very poorly on offense and now everyone doubts them. Chargers are overvalued. The stadium is going to be 50/50 Browns fans. The defense for the Browns is coming into its own. This game is simple – the Browns have the No. 1 rush offense in the league and the Chargers have the fourth-worst rushing defense. Cleveland will control the clock.”

Actual final score: Chargers 47, Browns 42

Did Cowherd win? No

Buffalo Bills (+3) vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Colin’s pick: Bills

Colin’s final score: Bills 36, Chiefs 28

Cowherd said:

“This could be a blowout. Kansas City has problems defensively. Sean McDermott, the defensive coordinator, the last two drafts have really tried to patch up their defensive front and it is working. Takeaways are first in the league. Passer rating defense first in the league. The Chiefs win against the Eagles last week…it was their first win by more than 6 points by Week 8 last year. They can’t stop anyone. They are allowing nearly 7 yards a play.”

Actual final score: Bills 38, Chiefs 20

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Cowherd’s Week 5 Blazin’ 5 record: 3-3

Colin Cowherd 2021 Blazin’ 5 overall record: 12-15

Did Colin Cowherd Win? He Adds a Bonus Pick Turning Blazin’ 5 to “Sizzlin’ 6”

Colin Cowherd Week 4 Blazin’ 5 picks includes an extra game for bettors. He likes the Chargers to cover in a high-scoring game.

Colin Cowherd found out that even puppy love hurts. In Week 3, he was in love with underdogs. But it was an unrequited love and he had another losing week (2-3).

For Week 4, he refrained from using his “like it, I love it” cliche to express his adulation. Instead he took a more measured approach. He even added a bonus pick so maybe he can finally hit .500.

Colin Cowherd’s 2021 Week 4 NFL picks

The Herd with Colin Cowherd is a sports talk radio show on Fox Sports Radio and Fox Sports 1. Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 airs Fridays on The Herd at 1 p.m. EST.

Carolina Panthers vs. Dallas Cowboys (-4.5)

Colin’s pick: Cowboys

Colin’s final score: Cowboys 27, Panthers 20

Cowherd said:

“I’m on the opposite side of the wise guys. They (the Cowboys) are a Tom Brady game-winning drive away from being perfect. They outplayed the Buccaneers. The Cowboys are +5 in turnover differential – the best in the league. Dak Prescott’s last six home starts – 117 passer rating. Sam Darnold has been two quarterbacks this year. When it’s on script with Matt Rhule he’s great. In the second half he is literally half the quarterback and his completion percentage and his passer rating plummets.”

Actual final score: Cowboys 36, Panthers 28

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Indianapolis Colts vs. Miami Dolphins (-2)

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Dolphins 27, Colts 23

Cowherd said:

“Jacoby Brisset is better than Tua. They are going to win this game. Carson Wentz,  last seven starts he’s 0-7 and he’s completed 57% of his throws. The Colts are falling apart. You can run the ball on their defense. They are struggling everywhere with health, accuracy, and stopping the run.”

Actual final score: Colts 27, Dolphins 17

Did Cowherd win? No

Cleveland Browns vs. Minnesota Vikings (+2.5)

Colin’s pick:Vikings

Colin’s final score: Vikings 27, Browns 26

Cowherd said:

“The Vikings should be 3-0. They are an underdog at home getting 2.5. This is not an indictment on Cleveland but they are injured. Their defense isn’t right yet. I know everybody likes to roll their eyes at Kirk Cousins, but when is the last bad game he’s had? He’s had 17 consecutive games with a 90+ passer rating. They are at home where he is always better. I’m not sure the line is right and until I’m sure Cleveland has their defense right against a legitimate offense, I’ll take the VIkings.”

Actual final score: Browns 14, Vikings 7

Did Cowherd win? No

New York Giants (+7) vs. New Orleans Saints

Colin’s pick: Giants

Colin’s final score: Giants 27, Saints 26

Cowherd said:

“One of my favorite bets of the weekend. Daniel Jones is no longer throwing the ball over. One interception in his last nine games. How is the Saints offense giving up seven or eight points? They can’t move the ball. They are almost last or next-to-last in yards, passing, and yards-per-play. Jameis Winston has the fewest passing yards of any quarterback who has started three games. I get a touchdown with a Giants team that under Joe Judge that his blown out one time.”

Actual final score: Giants 27, Saints 21

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Baltimore Ravens vs. Denver Broncos (+1)

Colin’s pick:Broncos

Colin’s final score: Broncos 27, Ravens 24

Cowherd said:

“Possibly a blowout. I think the Broncos might blow out Baltimore. The Ravens are struggling on third down. Lamar has five turnovers this year. Not healthy. Denver’s defense is on fire. They are first in points-per-game allowed and opponents passer rating. They are second in yards-per-game allowed. Teddy Bridgewater is making plays. They are banged up at wide reciever but they are deep enough at skill positions I think they put up some big points. I don’t love what I’m seeing with Baltimore right now.”

Actual final score: Ravens 23, Broncos 7

Did Cowherd win? No

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Los Angeles Chargers (-3.5)

Colin’s pick: Chargers 

Cowherd said:

“The hook number’s 3.5. The wise guys probably like the Raiders. This is going to be a wild, high scoring game. Since Week 2 last year, Justin Herbert leads the league in completions, he is tied for second for 300-yard games and is third for most pass yards. The Chargers are 6-1 in their last 7.”

Week 4 record: 2-3

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Bit By Underdogs In Another Losing Week

Colin Cowherd loves underdogs for his Blazin’ 5 Week 3 picks which include the Eagles, Dolphins, Bengals, and Washington.

Colin Cowherd has yet to get the “blazin” fires burning. He was in love with underdogs in Week 3 and even called for the Philadelphia Eagles to upset the Dallas Cowboys. It turned out Cowherd got bit by the dogs en route to another losing week.

What Cowherd said about the Steelers

Cowherd after the Steelers X-x loss to the :

“What happens when the quarterback (Ben Roethlisberger) looks really old in Week 2. Pittsburgh is in a bad place. They had a quarterback who was shot at the end of last year. They have no succession plan. The division is getting much better. You saw it coming for a decade.”

What Cowherd said about the Eagles

He said what basically every Eagles follower already knew about their ex-quarterback.

I just think this might be who Carson Wentz is… He’s big, strong, talented, reckless and injury prone.”

On the Dallas Cowboys, Cowherd said,

“I’m very confused on that Dallas coaching. They survived Mike McCarthy. Great win for Dak and company.”

Washington (+7) vs. Buffalo Bills

Colin’s pick: Washington

Colin’s final score: Buffalo 24, Washington 23

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love it. I bet this Monday night and got 8.5 points. The number isn’t as good now. Nobody is fooling anyone in this game. McDermott and Rivera used to coach together in Carolina. Heinicke may not be great but he completed 70% of his throws in three games he started. They have excellent receivers, a decent running game, and Washington will be able to move the chains. Buffalo’s offense is totally out of sync. This is way too many points.”

Actual final score: Bills 43, Washington 21

Did Colin win: No

New Orleans Saints vs. New Engalnd Patriots (-2.5)

Colin’s pick: Patriots

Colin’s final score: Patriots 27, Saints 20

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love this. We got the Saints living out of a hotel for another week. This is too much chaos. I know exactly what I get with the Patriots. The Saints, first week great, last week terrible. New England’s defense is fantastic. They are No. 2 in the league and have 5 INTs, most in the league.”

Actual final score: Saints 28, Patriots 13

Did Colin win: No

Cincinnati Bengals (+3) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Colin’s pick: Bengals

Colin’s final score: Bengals 27, Steelers 24

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love it. Big Ben, not 100%. He hasn’t been good when he is 100%. The Steelers are the only team in the league with a bottom-three grade for passing and running. They can’t do anything right. The Steelers defense is suffering because of it. They are on the field too long. They are the 4th worst pass defense in the league. T.J. Watt isn’t healthy. Joe Burrow last week, worst game as a pro, he bounces back”

Actual final score: Bengals 24, Steelers 10

Did Colin win: Yes

Miami Dolphins (+3.5) vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Dolphins 26, Raiders 23

Cowherd said:

“I got a better number. But I really like Miami here. Raiders are the 38th NFL team to start with three-straight games against teams that won 10+ games the previous years. None of them went 3-0. The Dolphins are coming off a humilating loss. Teams that get beat by 30-35 points, 62% of the time come back to cover the next week. The Raiders can not run the ball.”

Actual final score: Raiders 31, Dolphins 28

Did Colin win: Yes

Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5) vs. Dallas Cowboys

Colin’s pick: Eagles

Colin’s final score: Eagles 24, Cowboys 23

Cowherd said:

“Love this. Jalen Hurts has the second-most rushing yards as a quarterback in the league. He is averaging 7.8 yards before contact. Hell of an offensive line. Their defense, as long as it’s healthy, has played way better than expected. The Cowboys are surrendering a lot of big plays (12). I’m calling an upset.”

Actual final score: Cowboys 41, Eagles 21

Did Colin win? No

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Week 2 Picks Steelers, Eagles and Chargers Zap Blazin’ 5

NFL Week 2 Blazin’ 5 by Colin Cowherd picks include the Eagles and Steelers. Hurts will be too mobile for the 49ers to handle.

It’s been a subpar start to the 2021 NFL season for Colin Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5. In Week 2, his record mirrored Week 1, as he went 2-3.

Despite ripping both teams in his season-long predictions, Cowherd picked the Philadelphia Eagles (+3) and the Pittsburgh Steelers (-6.5) to cover. The Eagles lost 17-11 and the Steelers were upset by the Raiders.

What Cowherd said about the Steelers after Week 1

Cowherd after the Steelers 23-16 win over the Bills:

“The Steelers think I am always picking on them. Pittsburgh is so good in the defensive front seven. They will completely disrupt you. Big Ben averaged 5.9 per attempt. He is not accurate or efficient. He looked old. They can’t run the ball. What are they going to look like in Week 17? I don’t see the traits. It’s going to win them 8 or 9 games.”

What Cowherd said about the Steelers after Week 1

Cowherd tweeted:

“Can’t believe I’m saying this but …. The Eagles have look so good today. Buttoned up. Sharp. I need to sleep on this. My world has been turned upside down.”

Before he started giving out his predictions for Week 2, he doled out this betting advice:

“My belief in betting is to take points, especially if you have a confident quarterback. Fan’s belief is to take favorites. This week was a weird week. If you looked at the initial lines, I liked almost every favorite. I almost never take all favorites.”

New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers (-3.5)

Colin’s pick: Panthers

Colin’s final score: Panthers 28, Saints 23

Cowherd said:

“This is the Saints second straight road game. They are living out of hotels. The Matt Rhule effect, since the start of last year Carolina has had the fewest three-and-outs in the NFL with Bridgewater and Darnold. This is a really well-coached offensive team. They run it and don’t let you run it.”

Actual final score Panthers 26, Saints 7

Did Colin win? Yes

Los Angeles Rams vs. Indianapolis Colts (+3.5)

Colin’s pick: Colts

Colin’s final score: Colts 27, Rams 26

Cowherd said:

“You know my rule, well-coached good teams that play like crap always bounce back. Colts were awful last week. Jonathan Taylor has topped 100 yards from scrimmage in five of his last seven games. How do you beat the Rams? You take the Ball out of Sean McVeigh’s hands. This offensive line was pushed around last week and rebound. The Colts have lost eight straight Week 1 games. They’ve won Week 2 in each of the last three seasons.”

Actual final score: Rams 27, Colts 24

Did Colin win? Yes

San Francisco 49ers vs. Philadelphia Eagles (+3)

Colin’s pick: Eagles

Colin’s final score: Eagles 24, 49ers 23

Cowherd said:

“This is an interesting game, you know I was down on Philadelphia. But Philadelphia is at home for the opener. Mobile quarterbacks have given the Niners trouble through the years. Jalen Hurts moves around. The Eagles defense against the high-powered Falcons totally shut them down. They couldn’t move the chains with a veteran quarterback, star tight end, star wide receiver and good o-line. Philadelphia was 3-for-3 in the Red Zone. The line play for the Eagles was the secret sauce last week. The Niners lost their best cornerback for the year and it looks like the Eagles have a couple stars at wide receiver. Upset.”

Actual final score 49ers 17, Eagles 11

Did Colin win? No

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (-6.5)

Colin’s pick: Steelers

Colin’s final score: Steelers 30, Raiders 23

Cowherd said:

“You know I don’t like big numbers but like it…I love it. Short week for the Raiders and they have to travel across the country. The defense in Week 1 was relentless against an offensive line that’s as least as good or better than the Raiders. No quarterback in the league struggles more under pressure than Derek Carr and Matt Ryan. Carr was 1-9 with a pick. The relentless Steelers defense will own the Raiders. This is my favorite bet of the week.”

Actual final score Raiders 26, Steelers 17

Did Colin win? No

Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Chargers (-3.5)

Colin’s pick: Chargers

Colin’s final score: Chargers 33, Dallas 27

Cowherd said:

“The sharps like the Cowboys. Yes, Dallas will probably be the home team. Dallas has multiple injuries up front. In the backend of the secondary, multiple injuries. They didn’t sack Brady and they only got two hits on him. Justin Herbert against a better defensive front was unbelievable on third down. With more time to throw and a worse secondary…I like the Chargers. The Chargers are on a 5-game winning streak. The Cowboys are 0-17 since 2019 scoring less than 30 points.I don’t think they are going to have the ball enough.”

Actual final score Cowboys 20, Chargers 17

Did Colin Cowherd Win? A Subpar Start for Blazin’ 5 As He is Bit by Lions Pick

Colin Cowherd returns with his Blazin’ 5 and “Boom Bet” boost at Fox Bet Sportsbook PA for the 2021 NFL season. Here’s his Week 1 picks.

Let’s blaze it up again. Colin Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 returns for the 2021 NFL season. It will be the third year PAOC has tracked Cowherd’s NFL picks.

  • 2020 Blazin’ 5 record: 38-38-2
  • 2019 Blazin’ 5 record: 42-41-3

Cowherd’s season-long predictions called for the Philadelphia Eagles to finish 3-14 and the Pittsburgh Steelers to be below average. Before Cowherd revealed his Week 1 picks, he basically made excuses for 2020.

“I feel better about Week 1 today then I did at Week 1 a year ago. If you bet football last year it was a throwaway year. It was a ridiculous year where no one had information. Sometimes you were better off taking favorites which is which is what gamblers never do. I was mostly lousy last year. I got a preseason this year so I can see what I am getting.”

Pittsburgh Steelers (+6.5) vs. Buffalo Bills

Colin’s pick: Steelers

Colin’s final score: Bills 27, Steelers 24

Cowherd said:

“At the beginning of last year the Steelers were healthy. They are healthy now. They led the NFL in QB hits they led in most sacks and allowed the fewest sacks. The Bills’ offensive line is just okay. The Bills defense is third-worst in the Red Zone. The Steelers offensive line is in transition. The Bills haven’t shown an ability so far to take advantage of that because the d-line is their weakness. Proud organizations who get humiliated at the end of the year like Pittsburgh did come back focused with a vengeance. I think this is a potential upset. I have the Bills winning on a late field goal.”

Actual final score: Steelers 23, Bills 16

Did Colin win? Yes

New York Jets vs. Carolina Panthers (-4.5)

Colin’s pick: Panthers

Colin’s final score: Panthers 27, Jets 20

Cowherd said:

“I’ve shifted on this because of new information. The Jets strength is their denfensive front and they’ve had multiple injuries the past few weeks. This Jets offense…Zach Wilson’s NFL debut, he’s inheriting a mess. Christian McCaffrey is healthy and only three teams in the NFL including Carolina had three receivers with over 1,000 yards. Carolina’s o-line isn’t great but I don’t think the Jets banged up team can expose it.”

Actual final score: Panthers 19, Jets 14

Did Colin win? Yes

San Francisco 49ers vs. Detroit Lions (+7.5)

Colin’s pick: Lions

Colin’s final score: 49ers 26, Lions 24

Cowherd said:

“Upset alert. Can we stop saying Jared Goff is terrible. In the history of No. 1 picks, he has the second-highest passer rating ever behind Peyton Manning. He also has D’Andre Swift, they have a star running back. All this kid (Goff) has heard for the past six months is how terrible he his. Many believe the Lions’ strengths are their d-line and their o-line. He’s got a star running back and some stuff to work with. Bad teams don’t know they are bad in the first week. What is Dan Campbell going to do? Jimmy Garoppolo lost confidence more than once in the preseason. He’s not the same Super Bowl Garoppolo. Upset alert. Detroit will give them everything they can handle.”

Actual final score: 49ers 41, Lions 33

Did Colin win? No

“I don’t know what I was thinking with the Lions. I got too cute. That’s the last time I will be taking the Lions this year,” Cowherd tweeted at halftime when the Lions were down 31-10.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Washington Football Team (-.5)

Colin’s pick: Washington

Colin’s final score: Washington 27, Chargers 20

Cowherd said:

“This will be the best defensive front Justin Herbert has ever faced. Washington is completely stacked up front. Chase Young as a rookie had 7.5 sacks and ten tackles for losses and is only getting better. A rebuilt Chargers o-line could be good, do I think it will be in Week 1? Western teams who travel east for an early game is never easy. They have a new coach. First year NFL coached in Week 1 are a combined 1-12-1 over the last three years. Tough opener for the Chargers.”

Actual final score: Chargers 20, Washington 16

Did Colin win? No

Cleveland Browns vs. Kansas City Chiefs (-5.5)

Colin’s pick: Chiefs

Colin’s final score: Chiefs 44, Brows 26

Cowherd said:

“It was 6.5 so I feel I kind of got a break with this line. Kansas City has the best September coach in the NFL. The Chiefs have won 6 straight openers. In September, Mahomes has thrown 32 TDs and no picks. The Browns are interesting. When they figured out Stefanski’s culture they were good at the end of the year but they were the only team with a winning record with a minus point differential (-11). This is not a good spot for them starting at Arrowhead against a team that was humiliated in the Super Bowl.”

Actual final score: Chiefs 33, Browns 29

Did Colin Cowherd Win? An Eagles’ Loss Spoiled Cowherd’s Season, Too.

Colin Cowherd is backing mostly underdogs in his Week 17 Blazin’ 5 at Fox Bet Sportsbook, and he needs to win 3 or more to secure a winning season.

Colin Cowherd went into the last week of the regular season “hopeful to win three games or four” of his Blazin’ 5.

Instead, he went 2-3. The final game where he picked the Philadelphia Eagles (+2.5) proved to be pivotal in terms Cowherd’s overall record. The Eagles failed to cover and Cowherd’s 2020 record fell to 40-41-2. 

It’s a sub .500 effort from for the host of “The Herd” and a slight step down from 2019’s record of  42-41-3. 

On Sunday morning, Cowherd said he would replace the Eagles pick with the Rams (+3). However, he noted that it was “too late make change in Blazin’ 5.” The Rams covered.

Wentz to Colts in 2021?

The Eagles benched Carson Wentz during their Week 13 against the Green Bay Packers. He was replaced with rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts who has held the starting position since then.

In June 2019, the Eagles signed Wentz to a four-year, $128 million contract extension that included about $66 million guaranteed at signing. Wentz somehow landing with the Colts and head coach (and former Eagles’ OC) Frank Reich was included in Cowherd’s 2021 wish list.

Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants (+1.5)

Colin’s pick: Giants

Colin’s final score: Giants 24, Cowboys 23

Cowherd said:

“I’ve gone back and forth on this, I’m going to take New York. I think it’s a ‘go either way’ game but here’s why I think the value is with the Giants. The Dallas defense has improved in the last month but it’s still shaky. It’s last or next to last in points, third down percentage, rushing defense. They’ve allowed 30+ points in eight games this year, and given up 120 points off turnovers, the most in the NFL. Here’s what I like, Jason Garrett, the former coach with the Cowboys, has really done a good job with Daniel Jones. Daniel Jones hasn’t had an interception in his last five starts. Nobody knows the Cowboys personnel like the Giants’ offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. They’re at home, they can still get in. They’re both playing for the same thing. I think the value is on the Giants’ side.”

Final score: Giants 23, Cowboys 19

Did Cowherd win? Yes

New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers (+6.5)

Colin’s pick: Panthers

Colin’s final score: Saints 30, Panthers 27

Cowherd said:

“This is an easy one. It’s an in-division game. Carolina has got no quit. Young coach and young roster. The Saints’ defense has been a little creaky in the last three games, giving up 171 rushing yards per game. The Panthers are 4-1 in their last 5 games ATS, they have 8 losses by just one possession. Teddy Bridgewater played great in Week 7 against his former teammates. New Orleans is the better team, that is not the question. Six and a half is a lot of points in a rivalry game for a smart young coach, a veteran quarterback, and a young team getting better.”

Final score: Saints 33, Panthers 7

Did Cowherd win? No

Tennessee Titans (-7.5) vs. Houston Texans

Colin’s pick: Titans

Final score: Titans 36, Texans 26

“I don’t call for blowouts much, but I’m going to take the Titans -7.5 to blow out the Texans. I think the Texans have quit and there are some numbers here that lead me to believe that. Their defense allowed 370 passing yards to Brandon Allen last week. They’re on a 4-game losing streak, they’re 5-10 ATS, and their defense doesn’t take the ball away. It means Ryan Tannehill is going to be comfortable. There are three teams averaging over 30 points this year – the Packers, Chiefs, and the Titans. People forget about that because they’ve been so inconsistent and we don’t love Tannehill like we do Aaron and Mahomes. This is a powerful offense against a team who I think has just quit.”

Final score: Titans 41, Texans 38

Did Cowherd win? No

Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers (+6.5)

Cowherd’s pick: 49ers

Final score: Seattle 24, 49ers 23

“George Kittle is back. Here’s what the game comes down to – San Francisco is still a top 5 defense in the stuff that matters like third down percentage, passing yards allowed, and total yards per game. But their third down defense is the best in the NFL. Seattle’s offense is struggling to identify itself. Russell Wilson has 14 giveaways in the last 10 games, only Drew Lock has more. So, Seattle is the better team here, nobody disputes that. But you look at San Francisco’s defense and they’re playing well. Robert Saleh the coordinator is still trying to impress people and get a head coaching job, so that defense is playing like their hair is on fire against a Seattle offense struggling to find itself. I think it’s a really close football game.”

Final score: Seahawks 26, 49ers 23

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Washington vs. Philadelphia Eagles (+2.5)

Boom Bet: Fox Bet users can 4X their money if Jalen Hurts has 250+ pass yards and 50+ rush yards.

Cowherd’s pick: Eagles

Final score: Eagles 27, Washington 20

“I think this is an obvious one. I think they win the game outright. First of all, Doug Pederson may be coaching for his job and he’s 8-4 ATS as a home underdog. They play well as a home dog. Washington is awful when Alex Smith doesn’t play and he’s only doing individual drills this week. When Alex Smith plays Washington is 10-5. When he doesn’t they’re 6-26. We talk about the Washington defense but we forget that Philadelphia is one of only five teams in the NFL with over 45 sacks. Fletcher Cox is great, their secondary is a little banged up, but I don’t think Washington can take advantage of it. Jalen Hurts is averaging 440 yards of offense. Carson Wentz was averaging 120 yards less. They are simply more dynamic with Hurts and I think he gets better every week.”

Final score: Washington 20, Eagles 14

Did Cowherd win? No

FYI: 

*Cowherd was right with Rams +3. They beat the Cardinals, 18-7.

Did Colin Cowherd Win? An Awful Week for Abbreviated Blazin’ 5

Colin Cowherd is trying to ride a hot streak, betting against the Philadelphia Eagles and Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 16 at Fox Bet.

The holidays and a ski crash can’t stop Colin Cowherd from releasing his Blazin’ 5 picks for Week 16. However, he didn’t give his picks on Friday on “The Herd.”

He released them on Twitter, and they didn’t come with an analysis of his picks. And he only gave four picks. What the heck, Colin? Why are you shorting your followers or faders at the holidays?

Maybe he should rename it the “Freezin’ Four.” His Week 16 picks went 1-3. It brings his record for the season to 38-38-2. It’s right on par with his 2019 Blazin’ 5 finish of 42-41-3.

Did Colin Cowherd Win? The Hook Makes This Week’s Blazin’ 5 a Hot 4-1

Colin Cowherd is taking the Dolphins and Cardinals to cover vs. the Patriots and Eagles, and the Saints over KC in his Week 15 Fox Bet Blazin’ 5.

Colin Cowherd’s week didn’t start out great when the Denver Broncos (+6) failed to cover and were stampeded 48-19 by the Buffalo Bills. But he was saved by the hook, with the Cardinals (-6.5) and Saints (+3.5) to finish 4-1. It was his best outcome for Blazin’ 5 picks since Week 10.

Two weeks left in the NFL regular season still gives Cowherd time to beat 2019’s Blazin’ 5 record (42-41-3). He is currently 37-35-2.

Cowherd’s next move

Colin Cowherd has been dropping big hints about his next move, and he is even more blunt about his thoughts about the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Before the season started, he predicted they would finish 7-9. He has had plenty to say about them, including how their 11-0 record was “hollow.”

He continued his cigar-smoking-filled diatribes against the Steelers, saying that “their time has come and gone.”

Cowherd Moving to Las Vegas?

Various replies to Cowherd’s “My life bout to get more interesting” tweet speculated that he is moving to Las Vegas.

On Dec. 11, he tweeted what seems to be quite an obvious sign:

Buffalo Bills vs. Denver Broncos (+6)

Colin’s pick: Broncos

Colin’s final score: Bills 26, Broncos 23

Cowherd said:

“I am concerned about their injuries at cornerback, but this is the perfect letdown spot for Buffalo. Josh Allen, first trip to Mile High, the Bills have had several emotional wins, second cross-country trip in the last few weeks. Denver has a really good defensive coach, and Allen can make mistakes. Denver’s defense is top 10 in everything that matters. Drew Lock, the last couple weeks, appears to have at least stabilized. The Broncos are the second best ATS.”

Actual final score: Bills 48, Broncos 19

Did Colin win?: No

New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins (-1.5)

Boom Bet: 4X your money if Cam Newton throws 1+ INT and Miami wins

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Dolphins 24, Patriots 20

Cowherd said:

“What about Tua against Belichick? What about Cam Newton against this defense? The Dolphins’ defense is second in ppg allowed, first in takeaways, first in opponents’ third down percentage. Brian Flores is the perfect coach for Tua in this game because young quarterbacks struggle with Belichick. Tua doesn’t make mistakes, nine TDs and one pick this year. I get a better team, better defense, a great young coach, a team playing for more.”

Actual final score: Dolphins 22, Patriots 12

Did Colin win?: Yes

Seattle Seahawks vs. Washington (+6.5)

Colin’s pick: Washington

Colin’s final score: Seahawks 21, Washington 20

Cowherd said:

“The line has moved a bit here. The Seahawks have covered the spread three times in the last nine games. Why? They are overvalued. Their offensive line is the weak point, and the defensive line for Washington is the strength. I think this game gets really ugly. I think this game is also about Ron Rivera. Early in the year, he was taking cancer treatments. He is out of that, he’s more robust and his team is on a four-game winning streak, and during that time, they are number one in point differential. They also have four players with at least five sacks. It’s not just Chase Young. This makes for a long scoring, ugly game.”

Actual final score: Seahawks 20, Washington 15

Did Colin win?: Yes

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Arizona Cardinals (-6.5)

Cowherd’s pick: Cardinals

Colin’s final score: Cardinals 28, Eagles 20

Colin Cowherd said:

“This is my least favorite pick, so bet less. If you look at what Philadelphia did last week, the Saints were guessing. They had no idea what they were going to get. Arizona knows exactly what they are going to get with Jalen Hurts because they see it every day at practice. They are used to seeing a highly athletic quarterback. Philadelphia has allowed the most rush yards to QBs this season (364). Their defense has four picks all year. Translation: Kyler Murray will be comfortable. Vegas likes Philadelphia. Arizona is becoming easy to predict. When Kyler is healthy and can run … they beat the Bills … they are good … they dominated the Giants. Kyler is healthy. He’s going to be moving. “

Actual final score: Cardinals 33, Eagles 26

Did Colin win?: Yes

Kansas City Chiefs vs. New Orleans Saints (+3.5)

Colin’s pick: Saints

Colin’s final score: Saints 28, Chiefs 27

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love it. Saints are my bet of the week. The line is going to be all over the place. I bet it Monday; I got the Saints at 4. Brees is the starter and the number will probably come crashing down and you won’t get the number I got. The Chiefs’ red zone defense and red zone offense is not good. The Chiefs are allowing touchdowns, not field goals, on defense. They are scoring field goals, not touchdowns, on offense. This Saints defense is the story of this team. I like the Saints, who are still fighting for a No.1 seed.”

Actual final score: Chiefs 32, Saints 29

Did Colin win?: Yes

Did Colin Cowherd Win? The Possibly Vegas-/Barstool-Bound ‘Herd’ Host Had a Solid Week

In NFL Week 14, Colin Cowherd is teasing some big news, predicting Giants and Browns upsets and the Bills over the Steelers in his Blazin’ 5 Fox Bet picks.

The possibly-Vegas bound Colin Cowherd had a 3-2 Week 14 and correctly called for a Titans blowout. He was also all-in on the Buffalo Bills and Josh Allen, which meant Fox Bet users could have tripled their money.

Cowherd is inching closer to a .500 record (33-34-2) and getting more explicit with the hints about what he has planned.

Cowherd’s next move

We all know at least one person who posts vague statuses on social media. Colin Cowherd has made a number of teasing tweets with little context.

  • “My life bout to get more interesting.”
  • “Feelin spicy tonight.”
  • “Lots of rumors about me today on the Internet. I will simply say this — I will have a major announcement very early next week. Thanks for all your support.”

Even Liv Cowherd chimed in:

What could Colin Cowherd be hinting at?

It’s a bit different when one of your Facebook friends posts about “big news coming soon,” because 99.9% of the time, it means a baby is on the way. Is Liv Cowherd getting a sibling? Doubtful. But like your FB friend who is going to post their “look what we did in quarantine” birth announcement, the answers might be in the timeline.

Colin to Barstool?

On Dec. 9, he tweeted congratulations to Erika Nardini, the CEO of Barstool.

Cowherd signed a four-year contract with Fox Sports and iHeart Radio in 2018. Without knowing the fine print of the contract, it’s hard to say what Cowherd can and can’t pursue in terms of other opportunities.

Moving to Las Vegas?

Various replies to Cowherd’s “My life bout to get more interesting” tweet speculated he is moving to Las Vegas.

The hint is on the timeline …

Then, on Dec. 11, he tweeted this, which seems to be quite an obvious sign:

Long shot guess — Liv Cowherd cohost?

Liv Cowherd rarely replies to her father’s online antics, so it was surprising to see her retweet. She has a legion of fans who are not afraid to shoot their shot in the comments. Colin and Liv Cowherd would be a much more interesting pairing than Cris Collinsworth and his son, Jac.

Tennessee Titans (-7.5) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Colin’s pick: Titans

Colin’s final score: Titans 36, Jaguars 23

Cowherd said:

“I know there is a hook, and bettors tend to not like the hook, but I’m going to swallow it. We have a rout on our hands. Tennessee is a very good team that was humiliated at home last week. You know my rule, bet on the following week. Their offense, though lacking what appears to be firepower, is fifth in yards per play. That’s a huge Vegas stat. The Jags D is awful. They have not held an opponent under 24 points since Week One. Huge coaching advantage. I like this as my rout of the weekend.”

Actual final score: Titans 31, Jags 10

Did Colin win? Yes

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Miami Dolphins (+7)

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Kansas City 28, Dolphins 23

Cowherd said:

“This game feels like all Miami games — close and ugly. We talk a lot about offense, but Kansas City’s defense is clearly the second-best defense in this game. The data tells you it is slipping. The Dolphins D is first in the league in third down defense. Translation — they’ll get Patrick Mahomes off the field. Kansas City’s defense is the sixth-worst rushing defense, and in the last month it has gotten worse. The Chiefs have not won by more than 6 points in any of their last four games. You have a Miami offense that can run it, doesn’t turn it over, and an excellent defense at home. You have a Kansas City offense that sort of lacks a certain urgency. Miami is the best bet in the NFL this year (9-3 ATS).”

Actual final score: Chiefs 33, Dolphins 27

Did Colin win? Yes

Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Giants (+2.5)

Colin’s pick: Giants 

Colin’s final score: Giants 27, Cardinals 24

Cowherd said:

“This is the game you should bet the least on. The reason I’m worried is everybody likes the Giants this week. I think they have a coaching edge, are at home, are better than their record and I like their defensive line/offensive line matchup here. But I am concerned that they just came off their biggest win in several years, and the world now loves the Giants. What concerns me more for Arizona, Kyler Murray in the last three games is 0-3 with zero rush touchdowns and 4.1 rush yards per carry. He is struggling. Their defense has allowed over 30 in three of the last four games. In September and October, we all kind of fell in love with Arizona; they have not shown a second gear. The Giants are just getting better every week.”

Actual final score: Cardinals 26, Giants 7

Did Colin win? No

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Buffalo Bills (-2)

Boom Bet: Triple your money if Josh Allen throws two+ TDs and the Bills win.

Cowherd’s pick: Bills

Colin’s final score: Bills 28, Steelers 21

Colin Cowherd said:

“I’ve been saying it all week: I’ll take Buffalo. They are a Hail Mary away from being 6-0 in their last six, and they outplayed Arizona. The Steelers are becoming so Ben-reliant it’s comical. They don’t even attempt to run the football. Josh Allen, outside of Mahomes, may be the second-best young QB in this league, and he is just getting better. The Steelers as an offense is getting worse. Buffalo, at home, has the most fourth-quarter takeaways. Their defense is situationally fantastic. This staff is unbelievable.”

Actual final score: Bills 26, Steelers 15

Did Colin win? Yes

Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns (+2.5)

Colin’s pick: Browns

Colin’s final score: Browns 28, Ravens 26

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love it. Teams are different. Some get hurt, some get healthy, some don’t have an identity. Cleveland has found their identity. This is the two best running offenses in the NFL. The Browns have only allowed six sacks since Week Seven. This is the best offensive line. If you go to Week Seven, the Ravens have a minus-6 sack differential, Browns +10. The Ravens have lost four of six and struggle with their offensive identity. Do they want Lamar to run? Cleveland is the better football team and are getting points. I do worry a little about their maturity, winning back-to-back games, Monday Night Football, Baker spotlight. I’m going to take Cleveland. I bet some money on it.”

Actual final score: Ravens 47, Browns 42

Did Colin win? No

Did Colin Cowherd Win? He Broke Even And Got A Seahawks Push Instead Of A Painful Bad Beat

Colin Cowherd is backing the Giants, Bills and Bears and fading the Eagles in his Week 12 Blazin’ 5 Fox Bet picks, trying to rebound from a 1-4 week.

Maybe he’ll blaze his way to five wins by the end of the season.

In Week 11 and 12, Colin Cowherd has only picked three Blazin’ 5 winners. It’s been a rough two weeks for “The Herd’s,” host who has gone 3-6-1 over that span.

It could have been worse for Cowherd. He picked the Seattle Seahawks (-6). However, by Monday night, the number was -6.5 with about 90% of the public money backing the Seahawks to cover.

A Hail Mary in the final seconds and two-point conversion by the Philadelphia Eagles broke Seattle (-6.5) backers’ hearts and resulted in a 23-17 final score.

They weren’t included in his Blazin’ 5, but Cowherd, despite swearing off of them early in the season, can’t seem to quit the Atlanta Falcons.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Buffalo Bills (-6)

Cowherd’s pick: Bills

Colin’s final score: Bills 31, Chargers 23

Cowherd said:

“This game, I would usually take the Chargers, because they play close games. But I’m going Buffalo. What are the Chargers playing for? I know Buffalo is playing for a home game and a division title. The Bills are off a bye and have won three of four. The Bills have lost three games — Titans, Chiefs and Cardinals. The Bills defense is the issue. They are getting better.”

Actual final score: Bills 27, Chargers 17

Did Colin win? Yes

New York Giants (-5.5)  vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Colin’s pick: Giants

Colin’s final score: Giants 28, Bengals 9

Cowherd said:

“Like the Giants, I love the Giants. Coming off a bye, I don’t think the market has caught up with the Giants yet. They are 4-0 ATS since Week Seven. They’ve scored 20+ points in six straight games. Their quarterback, Daniel Jones, has back-to-back games without a turnover and back-to-back road games with a 90+ passer rating. Yes, they miss Saquon Barkley. Yes, they need a high-end receiver. But the market hasn’t caught up to them. This is a really good football team, and they’re going to win this division. They’ll face Ryan Finley; he has three career starts, and his passer rating is 62.1. Giants dominate.”

Actual final score: Giants 19, Bengals 17

Did Colin win? No

Tennessee Titans (+4)  vs. Indianapolis Colts

BOOM BET: If Derrick Henry has 100+ rush yards and scores a TD, you can 4X your money. 

Colin’s pick: Titans

Colin’s final score: Titans 27, Colts 23

Cowherd said:

“I love Tennessee. The Colts are a good team, and they just beat a very popular team in Green Bay. So now their line is overvalued. Tennessee getting +4 at Indy is the play here. First of all, the Titans are a good road team. They’ve won six out of their last seven road games in the regular season. They’re also a really smartly coached team.

“The Titans have five giveaways this year. It’s the fewest in the NFL. It’s very New England with Vrabel. They don’t give you the ball. Here are two things that always travel well: good coaching and running games. Derrick Henry has seven straight road games with 100+ yards rushing. So I get a great road team, I get a great running team, I get a well-coached team, and I think the Colts are a little overvalued because they beat a wildly popular Green Bay team last week.”

Actual final score: Titans 45, Colts 26

Did Colin win? Yes

Chicago Bears (+9.5) vs. Green Bay Packers

Colin’s pick: Bears

Colin’s final score: “Packers probably win by a touchdown.”

Cowherd said:

“Listen, their offense is pathetic, so it’s not my favorite pick of the week, but here’s the thing I know about the Bears: They’ve only allowed 12 passing touchdowns all year, and only the Rams have allowed fewer. Their defense is the best in the league on third down, and their defense has not allowed a single quarterback to throw for over 300 yards this year. But here’s what worries me about Green Bay, and I do think they’ll win this game: They have the worst red zone defense in the league. Do you know that Aaron Jones has rushed for just 50 yards a game since Week Three? I don’t like what I see out of the Packers’ lines right now — offensively or defensively. I think they’re very Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams dependent. This number for a division rivalry game is huge.”

Actual final score: Packers 41, Bears 25

Did Colin win? No

Seattle Seahawks (-6) vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Colin’s pick: Seahawks

Colin’s final score: Seahawks 32, Eagles 22

Cowherd said:

“Seattle -6 is the play here. First of all, Seattle has extra prep time playing on a Thursday, and now they don’t have to play until a Monday. Here is the story of the game, though. We all lament Seattle’s pass rush, but since Carlos Dunlap joined the team from the Bengals and Jamal Adams returned from injury since Week Nine, the Seahawks defense is tied for the NFL lead in sacks. Uh oh, they solved their dilemma. Keep an eye out on LJ Collier. First-round pick from two years ago. Played his best game of the year against Arizona.

“Seattle may have solved their big hole — pass rush. What will that also do? Solve their second biggest issue — their secondary. I think Seattle is the team with the most to grow at this point in the season. By the way, Carson Wentz is 0-4 against Seattle, playing like crap, and I think they’ll feel a lot of pressure at home in the Monday Night game to play well. Seattle under Pete Carroll has been a great East Coast road team. Take out the Buffalo loss, and they’ve won 10 straight.”

Actual final score: Seahawks 23, Eagles 17
