Did Colin Cowherd Win? Most Blazin’ 5 Picks Turn Out To Be Turkeys in Week 11

Colin Cowherd went a lousy 1-4 in his Week 11 Blazin’ 5 picks as his bird picks — the Eagles and Falcons — both turned out to be fowls.

After a 4-1 Week 10, Colin Cowherd warned that Week 11 was a “speed trap.”

His Blazin’ 5 picks deserve some sort of slap-on-the-wrist citation, since he only predicted one winner.

Cowherd swore off picking the Atlanta Falcons early in the season but chose them to cover (+4.5) against the New Orleans Saints. Also, he ripped the imploding Philadelphia Eagles but still saw them not only covering (+3.5) but winning outright. Picking both bird-named teams turned out to be a fowl.

Let’s hope he doesn’t burn his turkey as badly as his picks burned him.

Cowherd says Eagles are imploding

On Thursday, Colin Cowherd said “Philadelphia is imploding” amid multiple reports that the practices are “lousy.” He then ripped the Eagles for partying for a whole year after their Super Bowl win.

Listen, Colin. Boston has won a lot more titles than Philadelphia. We’ve been waiting a lifetime for it. If you ask anyone in the Philadelphia area about Super Bowl LII, they will say, “Aside from my wedding and the birth of my kids, this was the best moment of my life.”

Colin Cowherd’s 2020 Week 11 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.

Atlanta Falcons (+4.5) vs. New Orleans Saints

Cowherd’s pick: Falcons

Colin’s final score: Falcons 28, Saints 27

Cowherd said:

“The number is changing rapidly. Now I think the Saints with Taysom Hill are kind of experimenting at quarterback. I do not like that. The Falcons are coming off a bye. Raheem Morris isn’t only 3-1, he’s trying to win the head coaching job. In this division, he thinks he can get to a wild card spot. Atlanta since Week Six can move the ball. They have also allowed fewer than 30 ppg in five straight games. I’m going to take the Falcons with the upset win.”

Actual final score: Saints 24, Falcons 9 

Did Colin win? No

Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5) vs. Cleveland Browns

Colin’s pick: Eagles

Colin’s final score: Eagles 24, Browns 20

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love it. Philadelphia is absolutely the play here. Philadelphia’s head coach, their quarterback and their practice habits are all under question. They are getting pulverized. They lost to the Giants, but they didn’t commit a turnover, and their defense is way better than Cleveland. The Browns have scored 10 or fewer points in four games this year; only the Jets have fewer. Cleveland struggles when they face better defensive lines because Baker struggles under pressure.

*Last week, Colin correctly predicted a Giants (+3.5) upset over the Eagles.

Actual final score: Browns 22, Eagles 17

Did Colin win? No

Green Bay Packers vs. Indianapolis Colts (-2.5)

Colin’s pick: Colts

Colin’s final score: Colts 24, Packers 20

Cowherd said:

“Wise guys are split on this, but I get the Colts, who have extra prep time. The Packers defense has only created seven turnovers this year, the second fewest. Phillip Rivers is comfortable. He’s been sacked only eight times this year, the fewest in the league. The Colts defense will not make life comfortable for Aaron Rodgers. They are No. 1 in YPG allowed (290.4) and No. 1 OPP passer rating (78.9). Look at the numbers for Rivers. He’s not getting hit, he’s not getting rushed, he’s got a running game, the Packers don’t take the ball away.”

Actual final score: Colts 34, Packers 31

Did Colin win? Yes

Kansas City Chiefs (-8.5) vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Colin’s pick: Chiefs

Colin’s final score: Chiefs 36, Raiders 26

Cowherd said:

“Loved this number on Monday. It was Kansas City -6.5. I will still take it at -8.5. Andy Reid is 18-3 off a bye; it’s the best in the NFL by far. I get a team off a bye that got beat against the Raiders. The Raiders defense is below average. They have only sacked the QB 11 times this year. They have no pass rush. I get a healthy, well-coached team with extra time. There is a major COVID issue with the Raiders for the second time this year. It was my favorite play of the week on Monday.

Actual final score: Chiefs 35, Raiders 31

Did Colin win? No

Los Angeles Rams vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4.5)

BOOM BET: Brady to throw for three+ TDs and Bucs win

Colin’s pick: Buccaneers

Colin’s final score: Buccaneers 28, Rams 23

Cowherd said:

“The number was better early in the week. I bet seven Rams games this year, and I’m 6-1. It’s the team I feel best about. When Jared Goff is uncomfortable, he’s not the same quarterback: 4-0 at home, only 2-3 on the road. Andrew Whitworth is on the IR. Watch out, because this Bucs defense has the second most sacks, and this Bucs defense will force Goff to throw with a backup left tackle. If the Saints lose on Sunday, the Bucs watch that game and have extra motivation on Monday to win and make up a game, as Drew Brees is out.”

Actual final score: Rams 27, Buccaneers 24

Did Colin win? No

Blazin’ 5 Week 10 record: 1-4

Colin Cowherd’s 2020 Blazin’ 5 season record: 25-29-1

Boom Bet record — Cowherd’s “hottest pick” boosted 4X at Fox Bet: 4-7

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

Blazin’ 5 Week 10 record: 4-1

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.

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 win? Yes

Blazin’ 5 Week 7 record: 4-1

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Picks Fall Flat Again With Broncos Upset, Eagles Rally and Buccaneers Rout

The Pittsburgh Steelers and SF 49ers were the lone bright spots for Colin Cowherd in his Week Six Blazin’ 5 picks, and one was his Boom Bet at Fox Bet.

Colin Cowherd said it was a weekend of clarity in the NFL. What seems clear so far with his Blazin 5′ picks is that they are unreliable. He followed up an awful 1-4 Week Five with a subpar 2-3 Week Six.

“Coming off a crappy week, it’s time to get my act together,” Cowherd said before revealing his Week Six picks.

Maybe next time, Colin.

Hot takes from Colin Cowherd this week

Maybe Tom Brady wasn’t in the mood to shake Nick Foles’ hand. No big deal.

Carson Wentz and Travis Fulgham, you’ve been warned.

Justin Herbert is the next star quarterback in the NFL.

The Bills offense is so much fun.

Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (-4)

BOOM BET: Steelers beat the Browns and Roethlisberger throws for 300 yards boosted from (+240) to +300.

Cowherd’s pick: Steelers

Colin’s final score: Steelers 28, Browns 21

Cowherd said:

“Baker Mayfield is not 100%, and that leads me to believe they will keep him out of the crosshairs and have a conservative game plan. Big Ben has owned the Browns. His career at home versus Cleveland, he’s 11-0 with a 103.5 passer rating. The Steelers lead the NFL with 20 sacks and 70 pressures. Their rush defense is great and will force Baker to play fast, and he doesn’t play well fast. “

Actual final score: Steelers 38, Browns 7

Did Colin win? Yes (but Roethlisberger did not throw for 300 yards). So the Boom Bet was a bust. 

Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots (-9.5)

Colin’s pick: Patriots

Colin’s final score: Patriots 32, Broncos 16

Cowherd said:

“Like New England, I love New England. Don’t fight it, young quarterbacks get annihilated by Belichick. Patrick Mahomes struggled with him. Drew Lock is not 100%, and he is going to struggle. Denver is awful at Foxboro. The Patriots average 39 points a game and are 5-0 since 2008, with a massive turnover differential. I love New England in a blowout.”

Actual final score: Broncos 18, Patriots 12

Did Colin win? No

Baltimore Ravens (-7.5) vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Colin’s pick: Ravens

Colin’s final score: Ravens 33, Eagles 23

Cowherd said:

“Baltimore is not as dynamic offensively as last year. But their defense has been great at creating turnovers (second in NFL). They are top 5 in sacks. Lane Johnson missed this week. The Eagles continue to struggle with help at o-line and wide receivers. The Ravens have won 13 games by 14 or more since the start of last season; don’t sell all your stock. The Eagles are feisty but remain turnover plagued on offense. John Harbaugh wants to get this offense back. If he leads, he will pile it on.”

Actual final score: Ravens 30, Eagles 28

Did Colin win? No

Green Bay Packers (-1) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Colin’s pick: Packers

Colin’s final score: Packers 27, Buccaneers 24

Cowherd said:

“I know a lot of wise guys like the Buccaneers, but I’ll take Green Bay. The Packers do multiple things, but one thing very well. You can’t get to Aaron Rodgers, and they get to your quarterback. He will be the more comfortable quarterback. The Packers are the most explosive offense yards per play in the league. Davante Adams is back. I still think this is an offense in Tampa that is growing, with Godwin and Evans still not 100%.”

Actual final score: Buccaneers 38, Packers 10

Did Colin win? No

Los Angeles Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers (+3.5)

Colin’s pick: 49ers

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

Cowherd said:

“What do I always say? Bet a well-coached team that was humiliated the week before. This division is the best in football. This is the season for the Niners. If they don’t win this weekend, they are in an uphill battle for a wild card spot. Their defense is still playing good football despite what you saw last week. They are top 5 in total YPG and pass TD allowed. They still run the football well, they are still well-coached, they still play really good defense. The Rams are a good football team, but the urgency here is on the Niners. It’s the game of the season and they have to win. I’m calling an upset.”

Actual final score: 49ers 24, Rams 16

Did Colin win? Yes

Blazin’ 5 Week 6 record: 2-3

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Blazin’ 5 Picks He Loves Turn Out to Be Duds in Week 4

Colin Cowherd whiffed most of his NFL Week Four Blazin’ 5 picks, with only the Bills coming through, but he’s still hitting around .500 so far this season.

Colin Cowherd’s Week Four Blazin 5′ picks were an ice-cold 1-3-1.

After going 4-1 last week, Cowherd said on Friday before making this week’s selections:

“I’ve always been very altruistic. I like to make America money. Daddy buy new kicks is the whole thing.”

Those who chose to follow Cowherd’s picks this week don’t even have enough for socks.

His “Boom Bet,” which allows Fox Bet users to quadruple their winnings, didn’t even win, let alone cover (Cowboys -5). Another pick he loved, the Bears +2.5, proved to be toothless. The Dolphins +6 were his “favorite pick of the week,” and they lost to the Seahawks 31-23.

Not sure what all these qualifiers mean, since Cowherd starts out almost every Blazin’ 5 segment on “The Herd” with “I love all my picks.”

The QB and the hat(e)

After a hoopla over calling out Carson Wentz for wearing his hat backward during a news conference last week, Cowherd predicted a Bengals upset.

“Carson Wentz has been all over the board in the last six games — eight sacks, four picks this year, both tied for the most of any quarterback. I don’t know if Philadelphia’s locker room is good.”

Wentz threw two interceptions and the Eagles tied the Bengals, 23-23. During his conference this week, Wentz turned his cap forward, and of course, Cowherd pointed it out, saying, “It’s almost like we have influence in America.”

The top three teams look very familiar. Where have we seen them before? Oh, yes. Before the season started at FanDuel (and most online sportsbooks), they were the top 3 three teams by handle in the Super Bowl futures market.

Colin Cowherd’s 2020 Week 4 NFL picks

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

“Something is happening in the NFL you have to keep your eye on. Everyone is going over. The overs and the favorites are covering. A lot of this is because there was no preseason. It’s easy for quarterbacks in July and August to call up their wide receivers to throw the ball around. You don’t call a middle linebacker about dropping into coverages. The offensives are way ahead of the defenses. I think they will be for about one more week.”

The first three weeks of the season, we pointed out Cowherd never mentioned his “Boom Bet” on his Blazin’ 5 segment on the air, and you had to go to Fox Bet‘s social channels to find out. This week,  he closed his segment by telling listeners to go there to find out more on his picks.

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

Cleveland Browns vs. Dallas Cowboys (-5.5)

Cowherd’s BOOM BET

Cowherd’s pick: Cowboys

Colin’s final score: Cowboys 33, Browns 26

Cowherd said:

“Dak Prescott against really good competition has always been a good quarterback. His QB rating since last year is 108.8, and their offense right now is No. 1 in the league. But this is about the Browns defense that has allowed 7 TDs passing of 10+ air yards this year, most in the NFL. I think there is a lot of points in this game, and I don’t think Cleveland can keep up, because they are more of a running team. Cleveland’s back end worries me. They beat Cincinnati with a rookie quarterback and Washington with kind of a rookie quarterback. How good are they?”

Actual final score: Browns 49, Cowboys 38

Did Colin win? No

Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears (+2.5)

Colin’s pick: Bears

Colin’s final score: Bears 24, Colts 23

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love it. Bears getting points at home. I think they are a better team, and I think Matt Nagy wanted to start Nick Foles three weeks ago but the GM wouldn’t let him. Nick Foles lets it rip, big arm, big games. This is the coach’s kid, and he went out and got him in the offseason. How good are the Colts? They lost to the Jaguars and beat the crappy Vikings and the really crappy Jets. The Bears defense is No. 2 in the league in getting offenses off the field on third down.”

Actual final score: Colts 19, Bears 11

Did Colin win? No

Seattle Seahawks vs. Miami Dolphins (+6)

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Seahawks 27, Dolphins 26

Cowherd said:

“Favorite pick of the week. Miami gets three days of extra prep time because they were on Thursday Night Football. That is huge, because they have a very good coaching staff and staffs that are good take advantage of it. Seattle has the furthest trip you can make after dramatic wins. Fitzpatrick is very good when he’s comfortable, and Seattle makes every quarterback comfortable, because they have no pass rush. The Dolphins are playing clean football. They are one of two teams that have not had a turnover in two weeks. I think Russell Wilson may come in and save the day late.”

FYI, Colin is fading the public here big time. At DraftKings, 95% of the handle is going to the Seahawks to cover the spread.

Actual final score: Seahawks 31, Dolphins 23

Did Colin win? No

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-7)

Colin’s pick: Buccaneers

Colin’s final score: Buccaneers 33, Chargers 23

Cowherd said:

“This is a lot of points. I’ll take Tom Brady and the Bucs. This game is about comfort vs. discomfort, Tom Brady vs. a Chargers defense without an injured Derwin James. Justin Herbert will face a pass rush, and you can’t run on the Bucs D. They are No. 2 for yards per play. Herbert has struggled in the red zone, and the Chargers have settled for field goals. He’ll be uncomfortable all day. I believe Todd Bowles is the best current coordinator in the NFL and Tampa has the best or second-best linebacking corps. It’s the defense of Tampa that will decide the game.”

Actual final score: Buccaneers 38, Chargers 31

Did Colin win? Push

Buffalo Bills (-3) vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Colin’s pick: Bills

Colin’s final score: Bills 32, Raiders 27

Cowherd said:

“This is an easy one. There is no home field anymore, so it’s basically a neutral field. I get the better quarterback, coach and defense. There are a lot of people who think Buffalo is a top four team in this league. A lot of coaches are really on Buffalo. They rank second in pass ypg and third is points per game the last two seasons. This Buffalo team will force the Raiders to play real defense because they press the ball down the field.”

*Colin bet against the Bills during Weeks One and Two. He quickly changed his tune on Josh Allen and the Bills and backed them with his Boom Bet.

Actual final score: Bills 30, Raiders 23

Did Colin win? Yes

Blazin’ 5 Week 1 record: 1-3-1

Colin Cowherd’s 2020 Blazin’ 5 season record: 9-10-1

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Boom Bet Wins, But It’s Another Subpar Week

Colin Cowherd went 2-3 again in his Week 2 Blazin’ 5 picks, but this time his “Boom Bet” on Brady and the Bucs won for bettors at Fox Bet sportsbook PA.

Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season wasn’t particularly kind to Colin Cowherd.

His Blazin 5 picks went 2-3, and his favorite bets (the Falcons and the Jets) lost. He was so upset about it, he put them on a list.

“I will not bet FOR the Jets or the Falcons.”

This year, the Fox Bet online sportsbook app promotion with Cowherd is different. Instead of having to pick three winners out of five to boost odds for users, Cowherd is choosing a “Boom Bet” each week. His “hottest pick” gets boosted at 4x.

Also, it doesn’t appear that he is making his college football Marquee 3 selections.

However, the more things change with Cowherd, the more things stay the same. He still has a penchant for posting foot pics on Twitter.

Cowherd cackles about Baker and Burrow

Before Thursday Night Football’s Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns game, Cowherd said that Baker Mayfield is “three more crappy Sundays from the Browns moving on.”

(Mayfield was drafted No. 1 in 2018. The other quarterback on the Browns active roster is 32-year-old Case Keenum).

The Browns won 35-30, and Cowherd commented that Mayfield played one of his best games but the losing quarterback (Joe Burrow) was way better. He called Mayfield the fourth-best quarterback in the AFC North.

After spending most of the offseason ripping No. 1 pick Burrow, Cowherd went total Burrow fanboy on Friday, praising his play on Thursday night.

Colin Cowherd’s 2020 Week 2 NFL picks

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

Atlanta Falcons vs. Dallas Cowboys (-5)

Colin’s pick: Cowboys

Colin’s final score: Cowboys 30, Falcons 20

Cowherd said:

“Dak Prescott is one of those guys who plays well at home. Last year at home, he was first in passing TDs, fifth in passer rating. Doesn’t it worry you if you are Atlanta and you outgain Seattle and get crushed? It’s a cotton candy offense with a lot of phony yards. Dallas loses their opener a lot. Mike McCarthy, all eyes on him, a lot of heat on him. Now they come home against an inferior team.”

Actual final score: Cowboys 40, Falcons 39

Did Colin win? No

Detroit Lions (+6.5) vs. Green Bay Packers

Colin’s pick: Lions

Colin’s final score: Lions 26, Packers 24

Cowherd said:

“This is all about the value of the number, Detroit +6.5. Detroit completely outplayed Chicago for all but eight minutes. Everyone fell in love with Aaron Rodgers. You do realize seven of his last nine games, he’s had declining numbers? Last year, the Lions played Green Bay close. They lost both games by a total of four points. I’m dead serious here: I think Matt Patricia, the next two weeks, is coaching for his job and to not lose the locker room. This is my upset of the week. Six-and-a-half is a ton of points here for an urgent team that needs to win.”

Actual final score: Packers 42, Lions 21

Did Colin win? No

Buffalo Bills vs. Miami Dolphins (+5.5)

Colin’s pick: Miami 

Colin’s final score: Dolphins 24, Bills 23

Cowherd said:

“So, timeout, Miami gets +5.5 at home? I thought we liked Miami last year; now we suddenly think they stink because Belichick gave a quarterback trouble? Maybe Miami is OK, and maybe New England’s defense is fantastic. Ryan Fitzpatrick has faced Buffalo many times and has been fine. This is not a rookie quarterback. The Bills averaged 19 points last year. They are still babysitting Josh Allen. Did you see what they did in the second half against the awful Jets? Very uninspiring.”

Actual final score: Bills 31, Dolphins 28

Did Colin win? Yes

Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-7.5)

COLIN’S BOOM BET (But he doesn’t say it’s his Boom Bet or “Here comes the boom.” Instead, we found it in the app and promoted on Twitter.

Colin’s pick: Buccaneers

Colin’s final score: Buccaneers 30, Panthers 20

Cowherd said:

“When Tom Brady loses in Week 1, have you seen what he does in the next game? Yeah, he never loses. The Panthers are a bad team that have lost nine consecutive games with a college coaching staff. The Panthers allowed 30 points a game last year. This defense is younger and potentially worse. Last week, Brady faced the best defense in the division … Tom Brady had a pick-6; it won’t happen again. The thing about Tampa to watch here, their defense was actually really good. Drew Brees threw for 160 yards. The running defense was good last year; it’s good again. Don’t get caught up losing the first week to the Saints; they should have.”

Actual final score: Buccaneers 31, Panthers 17

Did Colin win? Yes

New England Patriots (+4) vs. Seattle Seahawks

Colin’s pick: Patriots

Colin’s final score: Seahawks 23, Patriots 20

Cowherd said:

“I get over a field goal with Belichick. Since 2019, the Patriots defense is first in almost everything. Seattle’s O-lines and D-lines are bad. They were outgained by Atlanta. The Seahawks allowed the most passing yards last week (434). I think Seattle is the better team in this spot. This is going to be a short, quick game. New England’s going to run and eat the clock up. What’s Seattle going to do? They know New England’s defense is great on the back end, so they are going to run the football.”

Actual final score: Seahawks 35, Patriots 30

Did Colin win? No

Blazin’ 5 Week 1 record: 2-3

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Jets and Falcons ‘Hot Picks’ Go Down in Flames NFL Week 1

Colin Cowherd is back with his Blazin’ 5 and Boom Bet boost at Fox Bet Sportsbook PA for the 2020 NFL season. We bring you his Week 1 picks and results.

“Fire it up!”

Football is back, and so is our stalking of Colin Cowherd’s picks. Last year, we tracked Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 and Marquee 3 Super Boost college football picks each week.

Cowherd is much better handicapping the pros.

He finished the NFL season with an overall record of 42-41-3. Fox Bet PA’s promo at the time gave PA bettors the chance to double their money with the sportsbooks odds when three of his five picks covered.

Cowherd flunked when it came to college football. In 2019, his overall record was 18-27. If all three of his Marquee 3 Super Boost college football picks hit, sports bettors cashed in at +800 instead of +600.

Cowherd only correctly picked all three games once over the course of 15 weeks.

2020 Colin Cowherd promos at Fox Bet Sportsbook

“The Herd with Colin Cowherd” airs his Blazin 5′ picks every Friday around noon. This year, the promo with Fox Bet is different. It’s now “Colin Cowherd’s Blazin 5′ Boom Bet.” Each week, the sportsbook app will boost Cowherd’s “hottest pick” for 4x your money.

Now, he gets to cherry-pick from a full slate of NFL games and go 1-1 each week instead of 3-for-5.

The Marquee 3 Super Boost is missing from “The Herd” and Fox Bet promos. We don’t have any official word where it went, but we have some guesses.

Colin Cowherd’s 2020 Week 1 NFL picks

A bearded Cowherd is back with his picks and bravado.

“I gotta be honest with you. Every week, I think I’m going to go 5-0. Every dang week, I think I’m going to go 5-0. “

Colin did not go 5-0.

Cowherd’s Week 1 picks went 2-3.

His “Boom Bet,” the Jets +6.5, was a dud. His other “pick of the weekend,” the Falcons +2.5, turned out to be a trashed ticket, too.

Cleveland Browns vs. Baltimore Ravens (-7.5)

Colin’s pick: Ravens

Colin’s final score: Ravens 33, Browns 20

Cowherd said:

“I rarely swallow more than a touchdown, but I’m going to take Baltimore. Nobody is worse than the Browns the last 15 years during opening games. Why? Cause they are always changing stuff. Oh, wait. They changed stuff again with a new coaching staff. Cleveland beat Baltimore last year. Baltimore is not overlooking Cleveland. The Browns haven’t won during Week 1 since 2005. The Ravens led the NFL in rushing, and I believe their rushing game will be better. This is a testament to John Harbaugh and coaching. The Ravens have held their opponents to 10 points or fewer in the last four season openers.”

Actual final score: Ravens 38, Browns  6

Did Colin win? Yes

New York Jets (+6.5) vs. Buffalo Bills

COLIN’S BOOM BET (But he doesn’t say it’s his Boom Bet or “Boom goes the dynamite.” Instead, we found it in the app and promoted on Twitter.)

Colin’s pick: Jets

Colin’s final score: Bills 24, Jets 20

Cowherd said:

“Josh Allen was bad last year. He was pretty good against Dallas, and that’s the game you watched. Josh Allen was last in passing yards, passing touchdowns, completion percentage and passer rating the last two years. The coaching staff is great, he’s bad. He wasn’t good his last year at Wyoming. The Bills have scored fewer than 20 points in each of their last five games last year, including the playoff loss. 6.5 points when I get the better quarterback … there is no question the Jets upgraded at wide receiver, tight end and offensive line. Buffalo may win, but 6.5 points is way too many points to give the Jets. Buffalo weather won’t be an issue, LOVE the Jets +6.5.”

Actual final score: Bills 27, Jets 17

Did Colin win? No

Seattle Seahawks vs. Atlanta Falcons (+2.5)

Colin’s pick: Falcons

Colin’s final score: Falcons 24, Seahawks 23

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love it. Atlanta is my pick of the weekend. The Falcons played really well last year and won their last four and six of their last eight to support their coach. Matt Ryan has figured out Pete Carroll. They’ve faced each other seven times, and Ryan is 5-2 with a passer rating over 100 and 16 TDs. He’s done really well against Pete Carroll defenses, and this is not one of his great defenses. For all their issues, Ryan and the offense isn’t the problem. As much as I love Russell Wilson, it’s really hard in the NFL to go on the road cross-country against a Pro-Bowl-level quarterback when you have a significantly worse offensive and defensive line.”

(Hmmm. So if the Falcons are Cowherd’s “pick of the weekend,” why is it not his Boom Bet? We couldn’t tell ya.)

Actual final score: Seahawks 38, Falcons 25

Did Colin win? No

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Carolina Panthers (+3.5)

Colin’s pick: Panthers

Colin’s final score: Panthers 28, Raiders 27

Cowherd said:

“I know, I know … a bunch of new stuff for Carolina. But can I just say something? … Of course I can, it’s my show. Teddy Bridgewater is good. Best winning percentage as a starting quarterback in the last five years. He’s 16-6, and he also has a history of walking into a playbook and figuring it out. He does not make mistakes, and he’s got a world-class running back. I’ve always thought their wide receivers are underrated. The O-line is good enough. Defensively, they are in a rebuild. The Raiders were a bad team last year, not just on defense. Week 12 on, the Raiders were bad offensively with all those weapons. It’s a Gruden-Derek Carr issue. The Raiders were a bad road team, 2-6, and were outscored by 90 points. Worst road point differential in the NFL.”

Actual final score: Raiders 34, Panthers 30

Did Colin win? No

Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams (+3)

Colin’s pick: Rams

Colin’s final score: Rams 28, Cowboys 27

Cowherd said:

“I think the Rams are the better team, and they are getting points at home. The Cowboys only had seven defensive interceptions last year. They don’t make offenses uncomfortable. The Rams O-line is healthy, same quarterback, same coach, same system … this is a good Rams team with a super-hypercreative head coach. Sean McVay in season openers, this is what creative head coaches do, he’s 3-0, averages 36 points, and two of the three wins came by 20+ points. Jared Goff, for all the heat he gets, in the last four weeks, averaged 330 yards passing, second-best in the NFL. Cam Akers, rookie running back, has been the talk of the camp, as has Van Jefferson. I like the Rams to win in their new stadium. A lot of points here.”

Actual final score: Rams 20, Cowboys 17

Did Colin win? Yes

Blazin’ 5 Week 1 record: 2-3

Boom Bet record – Cowherd’s “hottest pick” boosted 4x at Fox Bet: 0-1
