FoxSports’ Colin Cowherd has turned into quite the handicapper, for better or for worse. In what is called the “Blazing 5” segment on “The Herd”, Cowherd breaks down his favorite five games and makes five picks each week of the NFL season.

After starting out hot, Cowherd’s picks have come back to Earth. Entering Week 10, his record was 24-20-1.

Last week, Cowherd’s Blazing 5:

Carolina at Green Bay – Carolina (+4.5) – LOSS

NY Giants at NY Jets – NY Jets (+3) – WIN

Arizona at Tampa Bay – Arizona (+5) – WIN

LA Rams at Pittsburgh – LA Rams (-4) – LOSS

Seattle at San Francisco – San Francisco (-6.5) – LOSS

 

Cowherd went 2-3 last week, and is now inching towards .500. Cowherd nailed the Jets over the Giants call, discussing the Giants losing five in a row and the Jets being able to move the ball. The Jets won 34-27.

26-23-1

 

NFL Week 11 Colin Cowherd Blazing 5 Picks

Cowherd’s five NFL picks are:

 

  • Houston (+4) @ Baltimore – HOUSTON
  • Denver (+10.5) @ Minnesota – DENVER
  • New York Jets (+2) @ Washington – JETS
  • Arizona (+10) @ San Francisco – ARIZONA
  • Kansas City Chiefs @ Los Angeles Chargers (+4) – CHARGERS

 

Cowherd likes five underdogs in Week 11, which is a serious “fade the public” move. Colin likes four road teams, with just one home team in the Chargers.

 This is the second straight week that Cowherd has picked the Cardinals, Jets, and a 49ers game. Last week, he picked the Niners to cover 6.5 against Seattle, but this week he likes the Cardinals +10.

 

Cowherd Blazin’ 5 Pick by Pick Analysis

 

  • Houston (+4) @ Baltimore – HOUSTON

 

      • In the battle of two of the best young quarterbacks in the NFL, Cowherd likes Deshaun Watson to prevail over the dual-threat star Lamar Jackson.
      • The Ravens are coming off a 49-13 shellacking of the Bengals, but the Texans are coming off a bye.

  • Denver (+10.5) @ Minnesota – DENVER

 

      • 10.5 points is a lot of points, and given the Vikings’ obvious game plan of running the football it seems Cowherd likes a relatively low-scoring game.
      • Picking the Broncos in Minnesota is a bold one, but again…10.5 points is a lot.

  • New York Jets (+2) @ Washington – JETS

 

      • Cowherd likes the Jets AGAIN, after picking them successfully against a bad Giants team.
      • The Redskins are starting Dwayne Haskins, but do get Derrius Guice back.

  • Arizona (+10) @ San Francisco – ARIZONA

 

      • 10 points is a lot, but the 49ers roster is vastly superior in terms of talent.
      • The ARI offensive line will have their hands full with the Niners front, and that will decide the game straight up and against the spread.

  • Kansas City Chiefs @ Los Angeles Chargers (+4) – CHARGERS

 

    • This is a bit of a shocker, after the struggles the Chargers have had with consistency.
    • The Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes back after a full week of practice, as he’s getting healthier after the Chiefs loss to the Titans.
    • Kansas City has lost four of their last six games.
