Hot Soup Picks Week 5

Screenshot (1)


Kansas City (-2.5) vs Tennessee

Andy Reid looks like he found himself a team.  The Chiefs have been rolling to start the season off.  They make no mistakes and have big playmakers all over the field.  The Giants found out the hard way that his team and score in bunches.  Ryan Fitzpatrick will get the start and KC will tee off.

New York Giants (-2.5) vs Philadelphia

Please win please win please win.  This a homer pick.  If the Gmen lose this game my fantasy team will be my sole football purpose and that never goes well.

Denver (-7.5) @ Dallas

It doesn’t look like anything can stop Peyton from breaking all kinds of records this season (certainly not a NFC East team).  Denver has shown no mercy this year so eat the points and hope it continues.

San Diego (-4.5) @ Oakland

Philip Rivers is clicking and looks like the PR of old.  Oakland does get Pryor back but that won’t help the defense.  San Diego does not have to travel far for this road win.

Arizona (+2.5) vs Carolina

Maybe it’s cause of HoneyBadger (sports Crush) but I like Arizona at home versus an East Coast team.  That usually doesn’t have the same effect of West going East but I think it will be a close game so take the points and hope Mathieu does something impactful near the end of the game.


Chicago (+1.5) vs New Orleans

New Orleans is a different team outside of the Superdome.  Jay Cutler is good for 3-4 horrendous games a year.  I like him to bounce back and for the Bears to win by 3.

San Diego (-4.5) at Oakland

The Chargers, and more specifically Philip Rivers, look like a new team under new coach Mike McCoy.  The Raiders will have a ton of trouble slowing down the Chargers.  Philip Rivers hits Antonio Gates for a 4th quarter TD that will be prove to be the difference.

Carolina (-2.5) at Arizona

Carolina has had two weeks to prepare for an average Arizona team that could barely beat the dysfunctional Bucs last weekend.  I like Cam to have a big game the Panthers by win by 7-10.

Denver (-7.5) at Dallas

Denver has covered their last 9 games against the spread and have covered 13 of their last 15.  I am riding this train until the wheels fall off (and they show no signs of falling).  They need to be treated like the 2007 Patriots who were also just demolishing opponents.

San Francisco (-6) vs Houston

Teams that played the previous Thursday night are 5-1 ATS the following week.  San Francisco re-established their identity against the Rams last week and will be more than prepared to play an overrated Houston team.



Detroit (+9.5) @ Green Bay

I think Detroit is a very, very good team this year and I talk about them every week.  Reggie Bush has looked electric this year.  Calvin Johnson is going to be out for this game, but I think Reggie Bush and Joique Bell will still put up big numbers.  Look for this game to be closer then most think.

New York Giants (-2.5) vs Philadelphia

The Giants’ backs are against the wall.  If the Giants come out and win this game then they will be back in the race for the NFC East.  Wild, I know.  Philadelphia turns the ball over too much and the defense is bad.  Giants can’t go 0-16 ATS, right?

New England (+1.5) @Cincinnati

New England showed last week NEVER to bet against them as underdogs.  No matter who Tom Brady has around him, he makes it work.  New England wins this game outright.

Baltimore (+3.5) @ Miami

I think the public thinks very highly of Miami.  To me, this game should have a 1-2 point spread.  If you’re going to give me more than a field goal on a game I can see going either way, then I’m going to take the value.

Dallas (+7.5) vs Denver

I’m taking the opposite side of my fellow blogger, SVDubs.  I think Dallas can win this game outright this week.  I think the offense will make plays and Tony Romo will be hitting Witten and Dez all day.  I’ll take the TD and the points and take Dallas.



Denver (-7.5) @ Dallas

Atlanta (-10.5) vs New York Jets

New Orleans (-1.5) @ Chicago

San Diego (-4.5) @ Oakland

Kansas City (-3.5) @ Tennessee
