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.

Cleveland Browns (+5.5) vs. Tennessee Titans

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 win? No

Blazin’ 5 Week 13 record: 3-2

Colin Cowherd’s 2020 Blazin’ 5 season record: 30-32-2

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

Colin Cowherd’s 2020 Blazin’ 5 season record: 12-17-1

Boom Bet record — Cowherd’s “hottest pick” boosted 4X at Fox Bet: 2-4.
