Colin Cowherd’s 2021 NFL Predictions: He Hates the Eagles and Says the Steelers are Over

Colin Cowherd makes predictions for the 2021 NFL season for team records, playoffs, wish list and why he hates the Eagles and Steelers.

Before he gets the Blazin’ 5 fires burning, Colin Cowherd makes season-long predictions. Last year, Cowherd picked the Philadelphia Eagles to win the NFC East (they didn’t). This year, his expectations are flipped. Cowherd expects the Eagles to finish 3-14 which would put them tied with the Houston Texans for the worst record in the NFL. Ouch.

He doesn’t expect much out of the Pittsburgh Steelers, either, as he sees an 8-9 record and no playoffs.

“When legendary quarterback go into their last year, and I think this could be Ben’s last year, it generally doesn’t end well,” said Cowherd. “I feel like the Steelers have wasted so many years. There were opportunities in the AFC. The years of Pittsburgh winning that division and championships are over.”

Is Colin Cowherd a sports betting svengali or is he about as accurate as a $5 fortune teller on the Atlantic City boardwalk? Last year, he was below-average, correctly picking three of eight of the division champs and two of the six wild card teams. Some of his other forecasts fell flat especially when he predicted the Ravens to go undefeated, the Steelers to go 7-9, and the Eagles to win the NFC.

Here are his bold predictions for the 2021 NFL season.

Cowherd’s hot takes on the AFC

“Moving the Patriots from 10 to 12 wins.”

“I do not think Carson Wentz plays 17 games. I think he plays 13 or 14 and I worry about him and Eric Fisher at left tackle.  They had a weird camp with weird vaccination stories. They are my best team in this division but I have my doubts about Wentz staying healthy.”

“You bet big when you want to win big. I generally play $10 bucks a hand but I know I’m not coming out of there buying a Bentley. The Dolphins are reportedly the front runners for Desean Watson….they are telling you that Tua is a $10 bet at the blackjack table. They don’t think they can win big with Tua.”

“Zach Wilson will finish in last place and struggle. He’s in the toughest situation.”

Cowherd’s hot takes on the NFC

  • “Everybody has a team they like more than the gambling community. I like Washington. Four first rounders on the front line. It’s a weaker division. Of course I worry about Fitzpatrick but there is something called a trading deadline.”
  • “Here’s what Vegas thinks of Matt Stafford.…Vegas has the Lions over/under at 5. Not a half game better with Jared Goff. The Rams won ten games last year with Goff. The Rams over/under with Stafford is 10.5. Vegas does not buy Matt Stafford as a savior.
  • “I can’t get past the Giants offensive line. It’s bad. I think the Giants offensive line unravels an otherwise pretty darn good roster.”
  • Jimmy Garoppolo has lost his confidence: “I think the game is in his head right now and I don’t know if it’s solvable. It wasn’t for Carson Wentz until he went to Indianapolis.

Colin Cowherd’s 2021 NFL Wish List

Love him, and you hope that Colin gets everything on his list like Veruca Salt. Hate him, and you’re waiting for the oompa loompas to have a number prepared when each one fails. Colin Cowherd put out his Wish List for the things he wants to see happen this season.

1. Sam Darnold to flourish. 

“No QB in the league has played with fewer Pro Bowlers than Sam Darnold. I root for young people who got a series of dysfunctional bad breaks entering the league.”

2. Justin Fields to succeed in Chicago

“It’s a great sports city and they’ve never had a quarterback who has thrown for 4,000 yards.”

3. Joe Burrow to stay healthy

“Like Darnold, I’ve never seen a young QB take a beating like Burrow. If you aren’t rooting for Burrow you don’t have a heart. This kid got crushed last year and then he had an awful injury.”

4. Eagles to implode

“I’m rooting for the Eagles to absolutely implode. I don’t like meddling bosses. Doug Pederson arguably out coached Belichick in the Super Bowl…they leak stuff, and treat him like garbage. After games on Monday the owner would reportedly come in and tell him what plays to run. A brutal situation. Carson Wentz…they leaked he was a bad guy. Every source I have said they never heard that. I believe Pederson is a good coach and Wentz is a good quarterback. Jalen Hurts found out last year when they pulled him late in the season. I root against meddling dysfunctional organizations and the Eagles are a mess.”

5. Packers to make the playoffs

“It’s good for Fox and my company. But I want to see them go on a little bit of a losing streak in November. It is great theater.”

Colin Cowherd Whiffed on Ravens, Eagles and Steelers in 2020 NFL Predictions

Colin Cowherd went 40-41-2 on his 2020 Blazin’ 5 NFL picks, but also predicted Ravens to go undefeated, Eagles to win NFC East, and Steelers to struggle.

The NFL’s regular season ended but checking on Colin Cowherd‘s choices has not.

Each week, PAOC posts  Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 picks and analysis then reviews them on Monday (or Tuesday). The host of “The Herd” and one of the personalities used to promote the Fox Bet sportsbook app posted a 40-41-2 record for the 2020 NFL season.

Before the NFL kicked off, Cowherd made a number of predictions.

How did they turn out?  We kept the receipts (the Tweets) and compared what he said to what actually happened.

Cowherd’s preseason predictions

  1. The Raiders went 8-8, a one-game improvement from 7-9 in 2019.
  2. With Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski in Tampa Bay, the Patriots finished  7-9, their worst record since 2000.
  3. Before he went down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 11, Joe Burrow threw for 2,688 yards, 13 TDs and 5 INTs. He was on pace to break Andrew Luck’s rookie record (4,374) for most passing yards.
  4. They did not but the Ravens (11-5) are on a five-game winning streak heading into the playoffs.
  5. Dak Prescott suffered a gruesome leg injury in Week 5 and the Cowboys finished a below-average 6-10.

Cowherd’s other NFL predictions

Ravens will go undefeated

DraftKings offered the market for six teams. The Ravens’ odds to go 16-0 were +2500; only the Kansas City Chiefs (+2200) had better odds.

According to Cowherd, there are three “great rosters” in the NFL this year: San Francisco, Kansas City and Baltimore.

“I’ve never said this in my life, [but] Baltimore is the two scariest things in football: stacked and pissed,” he said. “Lamar Jackson is the only MVP in my lifetime where people have said the following year they think he will regress. Half the league doesn’t buy into Lamar Jackson.”

The Ravens finished 11-5, and the Chiefs 14-2.

Eagles are the class of the NFC East

LOL. The Eagles finished last in a historically awful NFC East.

Patriots will struggle

Cowherd said the Patriots were going to be a “really bad football team” and win 5 or 6 games. The Patriots exceeded Cowherd’s prognostication (7-9).

Trubisky trouble

Cowherd said it was time for the Bears to admit they whiffed on quarterback Mitchell Trubisky and move on.

This looked like an early, easy layup for Cowherd when Trubisky was benched during Week 3 in favor of Nick Foles. But Trubisky got the job back when Foles was injured at the end of November. The 8-8 Bears visit New Orleans during Wild Card weekend as 10-point underdogs.

Wrong on the Steelers

Cowherd forecasted  a 7-9 record for the Steelers.

He continued disrespecting the Steelers calling them the “worst 11-0 team ever” back when they were still undefeated. Pittsburgh won the AFC North and will host the Browns in the Wild Card round as 6-point favorites Sunday night.

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.

Week 17 record: 2-3

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

Blazin’ 5 Week 14 record: 4-1

Did Colin Cowherd Win? A Winning Week 13 Plus Profit from Steelers Upset

Colin Cowherd ruffled some feathers in his Week 13 NFL Blazin’ 5 picks as he went three for five and cashed in on the Steelers’ upset at Fox Bet.

“I feel great about my picks … really like some underdogs,” Colin Cowherd said before giving out his Week 13 picks.

Maybe he had some good luck pizza.

“I’m in a good mood today. I ate an entire sausage pizza last night, and I’ve never been prouder of myself. I can still feel it. I was stuffed halfway through it but nope … forge ahead,” he said on Friday’s episode of “The Herd.”

Cowherd went 3-2, his best record since Week 10.

Cowherd continues to doubt the Steelers

Colin Cowherd continues to disrespect the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers.

Before the season, Cowherd forecasted a 16-0 record for the Baltimore Ravens and a sub-.500 7-9 for the Steelers.

On Thursday, you can count Cowherd in the “Steelers are the worst 11-0 team ever” group.

But wait … there is more hate. On Friday’s “The Herd,” Cowherd made playoff predictions based on current standings. In the AFC Divisional round, Cowherd picked the Bills to upset the top-seeded Steelers.

“I think Buffalo does several things well. I’m not sure what the Steelers do well. Now they are banged up. They are talented, but what can they lean on outside of sacks?”

After Washington beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 23-17, Cowherd gloated about betting Washington +8.5 on the Fox Bet app and went on to list the teams who are better than the Steelers, which included the Patriots and New York Giants.

“You hurt my feelings. I don’t like my feelings hurt, Steelers nation.”

Colin Cowherd defends Wentz

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz is getting battered on the field. He’s been sacked a league-high 46 times. His decision-making, practice habits and whether or not it’s time to move on to rookie quarterback Jalen Hurts are other hits that keep coming. Colin Cowherd defended the maligned Wentz.

Wentz was pulled early in the second half of the Packers game with the Eagles trailing 20-3. Jalen Hurts finished the game, and on Tuesday, Pederson named Hurts the starter.

Boom Bet: 4X your money if Nick Chubb rushes for 100+ yards and scores a TD.

Cowherd’s pick: Cleveland

Colin’s final score: Titans 28, Browns 26

Cowherd said:

“I like Tennessee, but we are going crazy because they smoked the Colts. Here’s why I like Cleveland: The Brown’s offense is the No. 1 rushing offense in the league, and Nick Chubb has had over 100 yards in five straight games. The Titans defense will make Baker comfortable. They are the worst third down defense in the league and have the 29th most sacks. The Browns are 8-0 when Baker has passer rating over 70. This is a good matchup for Cleveland.”

Actual final score: Browns 41, Titans 35

Did Colin win? Yes

Los Angeles Rams (-3)  vs. Arizona Cardinals

Colin’s pick: Rams

Colin’s final score: Rams 33, Cardinals 27

Cowherd said:

“Everybody is freaking out because the Rams lost to the Niners. It’s a bad matchup for Arizona. The Rams’ defense is top five in everything. The Rams are 6-0 against the Cardinals in the Sean McVay era. He’s got their number. Kyler Murray has played this defense twice and has struggled. Jalen Ramsey is the magic elixir for DeAndre Hopkins. Arizona is the most-penalized team in the league. Kyler Murray is hurt; they are not running the ball with him.”

Actual final score: Rams 38, Cardinals 28

Did Colin win? Yes

New England Patriots (-1) vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Colin’s pick: Patriots

Colin’s final score: Patriots 24, Chargers 20

Cowherd said:

“Bill Belichick is 20-5 against rookie quarterbacks, 7-0 in the last five years. Only Deshaun Watson has thrown for more than 300 yards against the Patriots defense this year. The Chargers defense gives up 28 a game. New England is limited, but they are a fumble away from going to overtime in Buffalo. They beat Arizona. This has been a very interesting team two out of three weeks. This is a coaching mismatch.”

Actual final score: Patriots 45, Chargers 0

Did Colin win? Yes

Philadelphia Eagles (+8.5) vs. Green Bay Packers

Colin’s pick: Eagles

Colin’s final score: Packers 27, Eagles 23

Cowherd said:

“I know this is kinda gross, but I’m going to take Philadelphia +8.5 here. I am. Say what you want. The Eagles have been ahead or within one possession in the fourth quarter every game this year. They gave Pittsburgh and Baltimore everything. They came back and covered against Seattle. I’m not talking about winning games, I’m talking about covering the spread. They are 7-3 in their last 10 games as a dog of 6+ points. Their defense has 36 sacks; only the Steelers have more. What do we know about the Packers? They don’t like to be uncomfortable. Philadelphia gets in your face and puts pressure on your quarterback. It’s going to be an ugly game.”

Actual final score: Packers 30, Eagles 16

Did Colin win? No

Buffalo Bills vs. San Francisco 49ers (+1.5)

Colin’s pick: 49ers

Colin’s final score: 49ers 26, Bills 23

Cowherd said:

“The number has moved some. The Bills’ rushing defense is not great, and the Niners are getting healthier. You can run the football on Buffalo. Buffalo is traveling all the way west again. With Garoppolo, they threw for 230 ypg; with Nick Mullens, they throw for 270 ypg. The season is on the line for San Francisco. Buffalo is a playoff team, they have room.”

Actual final score: Bills 34, 49ers 24

Did Colin Cowherd Win? He Predicted the Giants Upset, Bucs Rebound, Dolphins Win as Part of his “Best Blazin’ 5”

Colin Cowherd rebounded big in Week 10, going 4-1 with the help of the Bucs, Dolphins, Rams and a correctly predicted Giants upset of the Eagles.

“This is the best Blazin’ 5 I’ve had this year,” Colin Cowherd said before giving out his Week 10 picks

This is one of the instances when Colin was right. He went 4-1 and correctly called the New York Giants upset of the Philadelphia Eagles.

His Boom Bet, the Miami Dolphins to win and Tua Tagovailoa to throw two TDs, turned out to be a winner, too.

This is the third time this season Cowherd has posted a 4-1 record. His overall record after 10 weeks is 24-25-1. 

Cowherd underestimated the Steelers

They weren’t a part of his Blazin’ 5, but the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 36-10 to move to 9-0.

Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 airs Friday on The Herd at 1 p.m. EST. We break down his picks for you here and follow up on Monday with his results.

If Fox Bet Sportsbook users wager on Cowherd’s “Boom Bet” and it wins, they usually quadruple their winnings.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6) vs. Carolina Panthers

Cowherd’s pick: Buccaneers

Colin’s final score: Buccaneers 33, Panthers 21

Cowherd said:

“Pretty easy one here. I’m all over it. Good players who get humiliated on national TV are almost always good the next week. Tom Brady is 0-2 against the Saints. He’s 6-1 against everyone else this year. After a 3+ INT game, he is 6-2. The Bucs defense still forces the most turnovers in the league and is tied for the most interceptions. The Panthers are a fun story, but there is a reason they have lost four straight games. They are not that good. Christian McCaffrey is not going to play.”

Actual final score: Buccaneers 46, Panthers 23

Did Colin win? Yes

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New York Giants (+3.5)

Colin’s pick: Giants

Colin’s final score: Giants 23, Eagles 21

Cowherd said:

This is one of my favorite picks of the week. Like it, I love it. I think the Giants are going to win. Moneyline bet, maybe I already did. Doug Pederson is 1-3  off a bye. He’s not one of those coaches who is great off a bye. Carson Wentz is the most hit and most sacked quarterback in the NFL. He does get a little healthier this week with some guys coming back. The Giants are 5-1 against the spread in their last six because the bettors haven’t caught onto it. They are a good football team but not a great football team. Their defense has forced 15 turnovers this year; only Tampa has more. The Giants are a better team than Philadelphia.”

Actual final score: Giants 27, Eagles 17

Did Colin win? Yes

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Miami Dolphins (-2.5)

Boom Bet: Turn $20 into $70 if Tua tosses two TDs and Miami wins 

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Dolphins 26, Chargers 20

Cowherd said:

What happens when something is random and then becomes a trend? Here’s a trend: I like Miami -2.5. I think what’s happened to the Chargers is now a trend. They are not well-coached at the end of games. They are 1-6 in one-possession games this year, and they were bad in one-possession games last year. Their two wins have come over the Bengals and Jags. Tua looked really good last week. We know the Dolphins defense is good. Their offense is top 10 and average 28 ppg. I think this is going to be a wildly entertaining game. But I’m betting on the better defense, the home team with better momentum and a big coaching edge to the Dolphins.

Actual final score: Dolphins 29, Chargers 21

Did Colin win? Yes

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams (-2.5)

Colin’s pick: Rams

Colin’s final score: Rams 32, Seahawks 26

Cowherd said:

“A lot of people like Seattle; I like the Rams. Jared Goff is 24-5 in his career when you sack him once or less. Seattle has no pass rush. Jared Goff will be comfortable. The Rams defense is actually the story. They rank second in PPG allowed, YPG allowed, pass YPG allowed and are first for yards per play allowed. Aaron Donald has given Seattle fits. He’s got 12 sacks in 12 games against Seattle, his most against any offense. He has sacked Russell Wilson more than any quarterback. The Rams are healthier and are coming off a bye.

Actual final score: Rams 23, Seahawks 16

Did Colin win?  Yes

San Francisco 49ers (+9.5) vs. New Orleans Saints 

Colin’s pick: 49ers

Colin’s final score: Saints 28, 49ers 23

Cowherd said:

“Favorite pick of the week. Love the Niners. You think that’s the Saints? They haven’t played that well in three years. They aren’t going to look like that coming off a huge divisional win. The 49ers still have a lot of good players, and after getting humiliated by Green Bay on Thursday Night Football, with a little extra time for Kyle Shanahan, I like it. In Vegas, they think Nick Mullens is about a point-and-a-half less than Jimmy Garoppolo, and he wasn’t playing well. This is also the 49ers’ season this week.

Actual final score: Saints 27, 49ers 13

Did Colin win? No

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Bad Week For Brady, Favorites and Most of Colin’s Picks

Colin Cowherd backed the favorites in his Week Nine Blazin’ 5 NFL picks, but Russell Wilson, Tom Brady, Kyler Murray and Washington all let him down.

It was a rough Week Nine for Colin Cowherd and Tom Brady.

After two winning weeks, Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 picks went an awful 1-4. His “Boom Bet,” which would have tripled Fox Bet sportsbook app users’ money, proved to be an early bust.

Cowherd picked Brady to throw for more yards than Drew Brees and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to win their Sunday Night matchup with the New Orleans Saints. Brady threw three picks and suffered a 38-3 drubbing, one of the worst losses of his career.

No dancing Cowherd

Last week on “The Herd,” Cowherd said he was “turned off” by Denver quarterback Drew Lock’s game-winning celebration dance after the Broncos’ 31-30 comeback win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

“We have a new cool guy,” he said on “The Herd” on Friday. “He’s too silly, too showboaty, too cool like Manziel, Baker, Cam and Jameis Winston. I was right about them. Four-for-four about to be five-for-five. I’m not into Drew Lock. Win more games, Cub Scout.”

Although he didn’t include the Broncos in his Week Nine Blazin’ 5 picks, he made a bet with Lock.

“All I’m going to ask you this week is to beat crappy Atlanta. If you beat Atlanta, crappy Atlanta … dancing is allowed for the rest of the season with no criticism.”

Co-host Joy Taylor said she thought Cowherd was going to offer to dance.

“And I will dance a little on Monday if you win,” Cowherd said about Lock.

The Falcons beat the Broncos 34-27. Cowherd doesn’t have to dance for Lock, but he did recently join Tik Tok, so it doesn’t mean he won’t pull out some moves.

Colin Cowherd 2020 Week Nine NFL picks

Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 airs Friday on The Herd at 1 p.m. EST. We break down his picks for you here and follow up on Monday with his results.

If Fox Bet Sportsbook users wager on Cowherd’s “Boom Bet” and it wins, they usually quadruple their winnings.

“We are very very hot right now,” said Cowherd, who went 4-1 last week.

“I don’t think I’ve ever taken five favorites,” he said after giving out his Week Nine Blazin’ 5 picks. “It’s a different year. Different stuff is happening. and I really like the favorites this week. Some of them are ugly favorites. Washington is hard to stomach, but the Giants are on a short week.”

Seattle Seahawks (-3) vs. Buffalo Bills

Cowherd’s pick: Seahawks

Colin’s final score: Seahawks 33, Bills 26

Cowherd said:

“Don’t worry about the East Coast. Seattle is on a 10-game winning streak in the Eastern Time Zone. Russell Wilson is the best player on the planet. Josh Allen has not played well for a couple of weeks (four TDs, five turnovers in the last four games). The Bills defense is not good enough to beat good teams right now. They beat one good team all year, the Raiders. The Rams don’t count; they got an officiating break on one of the last calls of the game. They are the third team in NFL history to be 6-2 and have a negative point differential. Little bit of fools gold.”

Actual final score: Bills 44, Seahawks 34

Did Colin win? No

Baltimore Ravens (-2.5) vs. Indianapolis Colts

Colin’s pick: Ravens

Colin’s final score: Ravens 27, Colts 20

Cowherd said:

“The Ravens have a huge advantage at quarterback. When you have Lamar Jackson, you can roll the pocket, quarterback draws, throw it downfield. The last couple years, he’s been good on the road. Let’s not freak out. They had 460 total yards against the Steelers. He made mistakes, and he has regressed, but you can do things with Lamar Jackson you can’t do with Phillip Rivers. I have questions about the Colts; think they have a low ceiling. I don’t trust them, and their defense is very reliant on Darius Leonard.”

Actual final score: Ravens 24, Colts 10

Did Colin win? Yes

New York Giants vs. Washington (-3)

Colin’s pick: Washington

Colin’s final score: Washington 24, Giants 17

Cowherd said:

“Washington is off a bye, and the Giants are coming off a short week. You know I always love that. The Giants are coming off an emotional last play of the game loss. Washington’s defense is fantastic, and we knew it would be. Daniel Jones has 36 turnovers the last two years, the most in the NFL. I think it comes down to an ugly, choppy game. Kyle Allen won’t turn it over, and I believe Daniel Jones will.”

Actual final score: Giants 23, Washington 20

Did Colin win? No

Miami Dolphins vs. Arizona Cardinals (-4.5)

Colin’s pick: Cardinals

Colin’s final score: Cardinals 30, Dolphins 22

Cowherd said:

“Like Arizona, I love Arizona. They are off a bye. Miami, 3,000-mile flight cross-country. Tua last week was at home with two weeks to prepare and was very comfortable. Now he is going to be in a shootout. Arizona off a bye is going to put a lot of points up. Their offense is first in total yards per game, rush ypg and second in rushing TDs. The Dolphins had 154 total yards last week. I think this comes down to Arizona rested, healthier and Tua forced to play at a higher rate.”

Actual final score: Dolphins 34, Cardinals 31

Did Colin win? No

New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-5.5)

BOOM BET: Triple your money if Tom Brady has more passing yards than Drew Brees in a Tampa Bay win.

Colin’s pick: Buccaneers

Colin’s final score: Buccaneers 30, Saints 21

Cowherd said:

“Really like Tom Brady and the Bucs here. Why were they so flat on Monday Night Football? They were looking ahead. Brady and Brees — the difference is one of them is really good right now. The Bucs have the best point differential in the NFL and the best turnover differential since losing to the Saints in Week One. Take the first game out. The Tampa defense is number one in the NFL. They also have the ability with A.B. to throw in the slot, up the sidelines. Right now Tampa is an offense with no limitations. Brees missed practice yesterday and is banged up.”

Actual final score: Saints 38, Buccaneers 3

Did Colin win? No

Did Colin Cowherd Win? We’re Shook: TikTok’s Newest Member’s Picks Are Near Perfect

Colin Cowherd went 4-1 in his Blazin’ 5 Week Eight picks, with the underdog Dolphins and Broncos both coming in to make his Fox Bet Boom Bet a winner.

Of the WTFs in 2020, Colin Cowherd joining TikTok falls somewhere below murder hornets but above the “Is it a cake?” challenge.

The comments were immediately flooded with Liv Cowherd fans.

I joined TikTok for you, PA Online Casino readers, so I can continue to follow Colin Cowherd. He has not posted a dance video … yet. Liv Cowherd’s TikTok is much more entertaining.

Cowherd had a scorching 4-1 Week Eight record. We won’t fault him if he wants to do a celebratory dance.

His Boom Bet turned out to be a winner, too. Fox Bet sportsbook app users were able to make 7X their money, since the Dolphins and Broncos both won.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Miami Dolphins (+4)

Cowherd’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Dolphins 27, Rams 26

Cowherd said:

“The Dolphins are in a great spot here. I think it’s gonna be an ugly game. The Rams, on a short week, have to fly east and play an early game. The Dolphins are well-coached, and they are coming off a bye. Miami is going to be limited with Tua, but they know what he can do. The Rams don’t even have tape to look at; they have to look at Alabama tape. The Dolphins defense has allowed 8.5 ppg the past two weeks. Upset. Tua wins but won’t be the story. The Rams playing poorly will be the story.”

Actual final score: Dolphins 28, Rams 17

Did Colin win? Yes

Tennessee Titans (-6.5) vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Colin’s pick: Titans

Colin’s final score: Titans 38, Bengals 24

Cowherd said:

“The Bengals have some injuries this week and are kind of falling apart. A week ago, we thought Tennessee may be the best team in the league. Because they lost to the Steelers, they aren’t at least a touchdown better than Cincinnati? The Titans are the fourth-highest-scoring team in the league. Ryan Tannehill leads in passer rating. The Bengals defense is bad, getting worse and injured. I think the Titans win going away.”

Actual final score: Bengals 31, Titans 20

Did Colin win? No

Indianapolis Colts (-3) vs. Detroit Lions

Colin’s pick: Colts

Colin’s final score: Colts 27, Lions 20

Cowherd said:

“We like really good coaches off a bye. Frank Reich, twice in his career off a bye, is 2-0 and gets a Detroit team that got outplayed most of the game by Atlanta. The Colts have allowed six sacks all year. They run the ball and protect the quarterback. Their defense is excellent. Detroit’s lost six straight home games, and they are really bad against the run. That’s what the Colts want to do this weekend. I think this is a fairly low-scoring game.”

Actual final score: Colts 41, Lions 21

Did Colin win? Yes

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Denver Broncos (+3.5)

Colin’s pick: Broncos

Colin’s final score: Broncos 28, Chargers 27

Cowherd said:

“It’s the hook. Justin Herbert is really talented, but he has never played in that altitude. Vic Fangio is one of the best defensive minds, and Denver has got all sorts of talent. It feels like the season for the Broncos. Their defense since Week Four has been really good, top five in everything. The Chargers wins are over the Bengals and Jags. I like Herbert a lot, but this is a rookie quarterback without a preseason, a handful of starts, playing against a very good defense.”

Actual final score: Broncos 31, Chargers 30

Did Colin win? Yes

San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks (-3) 

Colin’s pick: Seahawks

Colin’s final score: Seahawks 28, 49ers 21

Cowherd said:

“I’m from Seattle and rarely pick Seattle to win. Jamal Adams comes back, and that’s really good for Seattle. The Niners are falling apart. Seattle’s offense is as good as it’s ever been. The offensive line is much better than people thought. Seattle does not want to lose two in a row in this division. I think they come back and play one of their games of the year.”

Actual final score: Seahawks 37, 49ers 27

Did Colin Cowherd Win? He’s Back In The Win Column, But Boom Bet Fizzles Again

Colin Cowherd is over the underdogs in Week Seven, putting four of his five Blazin’ 5 NFL picks on favorites to cover and the Steelers to upset the Titans.

Is Colin Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 heating up?

He posted his first winning record since Week Three.

Cowherd rode the favorites and the unbeaten Pittsburgh Steelers to a 3-2 Week Seven record. His “Boom Bet” fell short when the Arizona Cardinals upset the Seattle Seahawks in overtime.

When he made the picks, Cowherd said:

“I am generally not someone who takes favorites, but the league is changing and there is more offense. Gotta move around. The Rams pick, most of the wise guys in Vegas probably hate it, but I think Chicago lacks juice.”

His prognostication proved to be correct as the Chicago Bears fell flat on Monday Night Football.

Green Bay Packers (-3.5) vs. Houston Texans

Cowherd’s pick: Packers

Colin’s final score: Packers 40, Texans 23

Cowherd said:

“Favorite pick of the week. I like good teams who get humiliated on national TV games. They are focused, and they’ll play great this week. The Packers have two turnovers all year, both against Tampa’s defense. The Texans’ defense is horrific. They’ve given up more big plays than any NFL defense this year. Packers hammer the Texans. “

Actual final score: Packers 35, Texans 20

Did Colin win? Yes

Pittsburgh Steelers (+2) vs. Tennessee Titans

Colin’s pick: Steelers

Colin’s final score: Steelers 28, Titans 23

Cowherd said:

“I have a rule: Take a really good team getting points. I’m taking the Steelers to win. The Titans have two big issues. Their left tackle Taylor Lewan is out, and you do not want to be missing a Pro Bowl-level left tackle against the Steelers. The Titans are last in the NFL on third down defense. They don’t have a pass rush and teams extend drives. Big Ben is having an extraordinary season — his best completion percentage, passer rating and touchdown to INT ratio.”

Actual final score: Steelers 27, Titans 24

Did Colin win? Yes

Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints (-7.5)

Colin’s pick: Saints

Colin’s final score: Saints 30, Panthers 23

Cowherd said:

“That’s a hook number. Everybody usually likes the team getting 7.5. I like veteran quarterbacks and great coaches off a bye. They are 3-1 in those games. Drew Brees is completing 71% of this throws and leads the NFL. Carolina’s defense has five sacks, fewest in the NFL. The Saints have a had a couple of weeks to prepare for Teddy Bridgewater, a quarterback they practiced against for years. Carolina is getting better but is limited defensively.”

Actual final score: Saints 27, Panthers 24

Did Colin win? No

Seattle Seahawks (-3.5) vs. Arizona Cardinals

Boom Bet: $20 bet pays $50 — Russell Wilson has two or more passing TDs and Seahawks to win

Colin’s pick: Seahawks

Colin’s final score: Seahawks 34, Cardinals 24

Cowherd said:

“Seattle off a bye is 4-0. Arizona, a young inconsistent team, is on a short week. A young team who beat the Dallas Cowboys everyone is telling ‘You the man!’ Russell Wilson has owned no team in the NFL like Arizona. He’s played them eight times and only lost once, and it was his first NFL start.”

Actual final score: Cardinals 37, Seahawks 34

Did Colin win? No

Chicago Bears vs. Los Angeles Rams (-6)

Colin’s pick: Rams

Colin’s final score: Rams 28, Bears 20

Cowherd said:

“I’m the last living American who likes the Rams. Chicago is limited offensively. We thought when they got Nick Foles they would be better. The problem is he’s has one or more interception in five straight games. That’s the longest stretch in the NFL. The Bears’ offense is 27th in PPG and 28th in total YPG, yards per play and rush YPG. The Rams’ defense is better than people think. They’ve moved Jalen Ramsey all over the field. I know no one likes Jared Goff, but he has the highest passer rating of anyone in the fourth quarter. I think it’s a close, ugly game.”

Actual final score: Rams 24, Bears 10

Did Colin win? Yes

Blazin’ 5 Week 7 record: 3-2
