Cowherd’s NFL Week 3 Blazing Five Picks and Analysis

 

Cowherd’s Week 3 picks are ready to go, and he isย very confident in these picks. In the first hour of “The Herd”, he said he is as confident in this week’s picks as any since the middle of last season. What makes Cowherd’s “Blazing 5” so popular is the statistics and passion behind each of his picks. Here is a look at Colin Cowherd’s picks for Week 3 in the NFL:

 

Buffalo Bills (-2.5) over Rams

Colin mentions “Like it? I love it” for this one. Here is why:

  • The Bills are 12-2 as a home favorite in their last 14.
  • Buffalo is the only team in the top 5 on offense and defense.
  • Only the Patriots allowed fewer PPG than Bills last season.

Cowherd’s Prediction: 27-21

 

New England Patriots (-5.5) over Raiders

Cowherd is all in on the Cam Newton train in Foxboro. Here is why he likes the Pats in Week 3:

  • Bill Belichick is 27-8 after a loss in the last decade.
  • Las Vegas is on a short week after Monday Night Footballย andย travels cross-country.

Cowherd’s Prediction: 34-27

 

Cincinnati Bengals (+5) over Eagles

This is Cowherd’s “upset of the week” in his Blazing 5. After discussing Wentz and the backwards-hat issue earlier in the Week, Cowherd doubles down. Here is why he likes the Bengals to win outright:

  • No fans in Philly, so it’s not a hostile environment for a rookie quarterback.
  • Cincy gets extra rest after playing on Thursday Night Football last week

Cowherd’s Prediction: 27-24

 

Houston Texans (+4.5) over Steelers

Cowherd is a fan of the Texans still, as Houston games continue to show in his Blazin’ 5. Here is why:

  • Judging Houston for losing for Mahomes and Lamar? Everyone loses to Lamar
  • Steelers have turnover issues, and Cowherd says they are a good team, but not a great team.

Cowherd’s Prediction: 27-26 Steelers, but Texans cover.

 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6) vs. Broncos

The last game in the Blazing 5 is one that Cowherd isย very confident about, and it could be a bad line. Here is why Cowherd is on Brady and the Bucs:

  • Broncos without Lock: 3-8
  • Broncos winning record with Lock, so they are a different team.
  • Jeff Driskel 1-7 as a starter, and will start for Denver.
  • Bucs have been really good defensively, and can shut down Jeff Driskel.

Cowherd’s Prediction: 27-17

 

 

2020 Cowherd Blazing Five Picks Record: 4-6

Entering Week 2 of the NFL season, Cowherd was 2-3 and was down on the season. In Week 2, Cowherd was 2-3 again bring his total to 4-6 on the season. His Week 2 picks were:

  • Cowboys (-5) – LOSS
  • Lions (+6.5) – LOSS
  • Dolphins (+5.5) – WIN

  • Jets (+6.5) at Bills โ€“ LOSS
  • Falcons (+2.5) vs. Seahawks โ€“ LOSS
  • Panthers (+3) vs. Raiders โ€“ LOSS
  • LA Rams (+3) vs. Cowboys โ€“ WIN

 

Cowherd Blazin’ Five Record Last Season (2019)

For last season’s NFL picks, Cowherd’s “Blazin’ 5” was one game over .500. In the playoffs, he was just under .500 as you can see below. We tracked both Cowherd’s regular season picks and his playoff picks, and will do the same this season. Here were Cowherd’s playoff records last year.

Given that Cowherd was just over .500 in 2019, he likely lost money given the juice on wins at most sportsbooks. So far through 2020, he is off to a slower start but he did say that his Week 3 picks are his most confident since the middle of last season.
