Cowherd NFL picks this week


This weekend is what we have all been waiting for. It is Super Bowl Sunday, and the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 55th Super Bowl, and the first that a team will be playing in their home stadium as Tampa hosts. With that in mind, it’s the biggest football game of the year which means it’s the most talked about game by Colin Cowherd.

Each week during the 2020-2021 NFL season, including most weeks during the playoffs, Colin Cowherd has provided analysis and picks against the spread. This segment has been called his “Blazin’ 5” as it has featured five picks. Of course during the playoffs, the number of games dwindles. This week of course, there’s just one pick. During the year, Cowherd’s record was 40-41-2, and his playoff record is 2-4-1 so far. Will his pick be right or wrong for the Super Bowl? Time will tell.

This weekend is the Super Bowl, which means it is the final game of the NFL season. Cowherd has been talking about this game for the last two weeks, and it is time to see who his pick against the spread could be. Let’s take a look at Cowherd’s pick and more information, with odds courtesy of FOX Bet Sportsbook.
