And just like that, it's Week 5 of the 2023 NFL season and we're ready to start making our picks and predictions for our betting pools and confidence pick em contests. It all starts with Thursday Night Football as Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears head to our nation's capital to take on Sam Howell and the Washington Commanders. This should be an interesting battle as the Bears are looking to bounce back from their collapse against the Denver Broncos while the Commanders are supposed to be enjoying a much softer schedule than having to face the Buffalo Bills and Philadelphia Eagles over these last two weeks. Fortunately for us, we don't need to worry about point spreads as we are looking to just pick a winner for each game, so let's get to it!



In an effort to help you with your pools, I will provide you with my picks each week. In addition to full game breakdowns I do for my own research, I will also use money lines which at least show you how Vegas and the books are leaning. Sometimes the lines offer you a clear-cut decision, but you also need to explore some of the intangibles of each match-up and maybe have more of a gut-feel as to what may happen in a particular game. That’s where ranking your predictions becomes so important.

  • Season Standings: 40-24
  • Season Points: 356
