Cowherd NFL picks this week


There are just eight teams left in the NFL, as we head into the NFL Divisional Round. This means, for the first time all season, there will only be four games to choose from for the “Blazin’ 5” from Colin Cowherd. Each week on his “The Herd” podcast, the FOX Sports host discusses his favorite NFL picks against the spread. With the playoffs starting, Cowherd is likely to give his thoughts on each and every game with a pick against the spread.

While the NFL season was not kind to Cowherd as his record was under .500 at 40-41-2, he has a chance to reset in the NFL playoffs. Last week, he struggled going 1-3-1 but this is a new week. If you play or fade his picks, the “Blazin’ 5” segment provides entertainment and information on the weekend’s games.

Last week was the first time there were 14 teams in the playoffs, with just two teams having bye weeks. This weekend, there are four games in the NFL. Let’s take a look at who Colin Cowherd likes for this week, with betting odds provided by FOX Bet Sportsbook.
