Bill Simmons Million Dollar Picks for NFL Week 5
Cardinals (+3) at Bengals
Simmons is going against the Bengals again, citing their lack of offensive production and injuries. He thinks the Cardinals are underrated and this line should favor them at home.
49ers (-3.5) vs Cowboys
Simmons is betting the 49ers at home as long as their key offensive weapons are healthy. He thinks the line should be at least -4 given Dallas’ unimpressive win over the Panthers.
Lions (-490) vs Panthers
Simmons sees the Lions as a legitimately good team, especially on offense, and expects them to beat the Panthers handily. He’s using the Lions moneyline in two parlays.
Jets (+2.5) at Broncos
Simmons sees this as a good matchup for the Jets against the league’s worst defense that makes every offense look good. With offensive improvements, he thinks the Jets can cover as underdogs.
Patriots/Saints under 47.5, Saints ML
Simmons thinks the Patriots’ season is over with key injuries, calling their offense the worst that makes him want to gouge his eyes out. He doesn’t see the Pats and Saints with banged up QBs scoring 48+ points.
