Blazin' 5: Colin Cowherd Gives His Five Best NFL Bets For Week 11 (Nov. 15) (Full Segment at Bottom of Page)
Colin's 2019 Blazin' 5 Record Through 10 Weeks: 26-23-1 (Last week 2-3)
Texans at Ravens (SPREAD: BAL -4.0)
"I'll take Houston +4 in Baltimore. Deshaun Watson for his career in November is 4-0 and his completion percentage is in the mid-70's. It's been the best month of his career. Only Russell Wilson this year has accounted for more touchdowns than Deshaun. The Texans finally have a Pro Bowl left tackle and a real offensive line and they can really run the ball. Houston is a Top 5 team in total offense, rushing yards, and red zone percentage. I'm taking the number here and the upset, 28-26."
Colin's Pick: Texans (+4)
Broncos at Vikings (SPREAD: MIN -10.5)
"I'm betting the number and Denver +10.5 is the side to take here. Minnesota is coming off the big Sunday Night win versus Dallas and they don't win those games ever. The Vikings will pull back and this will be a low scoring game. Denver head coach Vic Fangio is one of the better defensive guys in the league and he knows Mike Zimmer well. The Broncos defense ranks Top 4 in fewest yards, fewest passing yards, and red zone touchdown percentage, which is amazing when you consider how bad their offense is and how much their defense is on the field all game. Denver is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games and 4 of their last 5 opponents they have held under 20 points. You don't like Denver's record (3-6) but they are NOT a terrible team. They are a REAL team and with a backup quarterback they beat Cleveland. They've lost three games as the clock expired and the Chicago loss was horrible officiating. This will be a very competitive game and Denver will ugly it up. I'll take the Vikings to win 26-20, but the Broncos to COVER."
Colin's Pick: Broncos (+10.5)
Jets at Redskins (SPREAD: WSH -2.0)
"I'll take the Jets +2. The Redskins might have the worst offense ever. They haven't scored a touchdown in a MONTH. They're last in the NFL in scoring and have scored 9 or fewer points in five games. They're now on a rookie quarterback, Dwayne Haskins, who probably shouldn't even be playing. What is their offense now without fired smart-minded offensive coach Jay Gruden keeping it afloat? They're last in almost every offensive category and are 0-4 at home. The Jets announced this week that Adam Gase will remain the coach for next year which means Jets players will want to put good stuff on tape for Gase. Gase isn't going anywhere so don't think you can screw off and get a new coach. Watch the players play hard. Jets win this football game 27-23."
Colin's Pick: Jets (+2)
Cardinals at 49ers (SPREAD: SF -10.0)
"Like it? I LOVE IT. I'll take Arizona +10. Is anyone else watching these Cardinals games besides people who live in Phoenix? You think the Raiders are the big shock of the league but the Cardinals are a REAL football team and they're getting ten. The 49ers are still banged up with some of their weapons on the perimeter, and the Cardinals are 5-1 against the spread their last 6 games. Arizona has won 8 of the last 9 meetings and always play San Francisco tough. Arizona is a lot better than we think and Jimmy Garoppolo is coming off a bad game and doesn't have a lot of his weapons -- George Kittle and Emmanuel Sanders are banged up. The first game they played was not a mirage. I think the 49ers win but the Cardinals cover, 27-20 San Francisco."
Colin's Pick: Cardinals (+10)
Chiefs vs. Chargers (SPREAD: SF KC -4) *Game being played in Mexico City*
“LOVE the Chargers getting 4 here. This game is being played in Mexico City, altitude 7,200 feet, and the Chargers went to Colorado to train... Kansas City didn't. They aren't happy with the league having to play this game and said they're going to stay in Kansas City. They're going to be sucking air by the second quarter. Philip Rivers is making mistakes a rookie makes in two minutes drills and drives me crazy, but he leads the NFL in passing yards and they have excellent weapons, a good tight end, and can really run the football. That Chiefs defense can't get people off the field. Kansas City can't stop the run and is allowing the most rushing yards in the NFL. The Chargers absolutely still believe they can make the playoffs and Anthony Lynn has to win games here -- jobs are on the line. I'm taking the Chargers to upset Kansas City 28-27."
Colin's Pick: Chargers (+4)
