TNF Best Bets (Week 5)

NFL Record: 14-15 (+1.87 units)

Season is off to a hot start as we already find ourselves in week 5. With arguably the best Thursday night game we have been blessed with so far this season, expect another classic between the Rams and Seahawks. Russell Wilson has been relatively quiet throughout the first 5 weeks, but that doesn’t mean he hasn’t been putting up the numbers we know Russ by. On the flip side, the Rams are coming off of a somewhat surprising blowout loss at home at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals. Expect the Rams to be pissed off, but will it be enough?

1u – Seahawks +2.5 (-110)

The Seahawks are coming off a clean win against the 49ers on the road. America must not think the Rams are capable of struggling in back to back weeks judging by the fact that 75% of America is betting on the Rams to cover -2.5 on the road. Give me Prime-Time Russ and a pair of Lockett TDs on any given Thursday Night.

1u – Chris Carson over 44 Rushing Yards (+100)

This is juicy baby. Not only does the model project him to go over this by 5 yards. Carson has seen 12+ touches in each of the first 4 games and has surpassed this yardage total twice. On the weeks he did not pass it we saw his day end early due to injury. As long as Chris Carson is healthy in this matchup he’ll be the head back in this one, and expect a heavy load.

1u – Arizona Cardinals to Win the NFC (+700)

This play is purely off of feeling. Cardinals are the only 4-0 team and have the 5th best odds to win the NFC…Lot’s of value there that cannot be ignored. Play at your discretion (I personally threw $250 on this)
