NFL football linesInstead of just giving you our NFL Week 5 Picks, we have added a spin: we now have a power ranking of our weekly picks from the strongest to the weakest. Online betting cappers should find this a little more useful as they make their weekly picks:

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 1
New York Jets @ Miami Dolphins

The Jets get a big boost this week with Braylon Edwards on the way. On top of that, they get to face Chad Henne, a very inexperienced quarterback. After facing Drew Brees last week, this week should feel like they are playing a high school team.

Pick: Jets -1

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 2
Minnesota Vikings @ St. Louis Rams

Don’t call this a play on the Vikings; call it a play against the Rams. The Vikings will be hungover from their big win on Monday Night Football, but the Rams don’t score points nowadays. They have scored a total of 24 points this year.

Pick: Vikings -9.5

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 3
Atlanta Falcons @ San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers got away with a win without Frank Gore last week, but they won’t win without him this week. The Falcons, rested off their bye week, will get the job done.

Pick: Falcons +2.5

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 4
Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens are probably the best team in the AFC North right now, but don’t underrate the Bengals. The Ravens defense has not been the same stifling unit this year so NFL betting fans should bet against them until we see it return.

Pick: Bengals +9.5

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 5
New England Patriots @ Denver Broncos

Broncos are still a fraud. The Cowboys handed them a win last week, just like the Bengals handed them a win in Week 1. They were on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week and the curse is on.

Pick: Patriots -3

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 6
Oakland Raiders @ New York Giants

Tough call to lay 15 points with anyone in this league, but the Raiders are in fact that bad. You can’t trust JaMarcus Russell or this defense on the road, especially when facing one of the best teams in the league.

Pick: Giants -15

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 7
Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles are typically money off of a bye week and the Bucs are starting a quarterback that has one career start. Good luck, Tampa.

Pick: Eagles -15

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 8
Dallas Cowboys @ Kansas City Chiefs

Seriously? Laying points with the Cowboys? No thanks. The Cowboys are in disarray right now and while they’ll probably win this week, we can’t advise laying nearly double digits with them.

Pick: Chiefs +9

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 9
Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans

The Titans are beyond desperate at this point while the Colts just keep on rolling. Hard to bet against Indy but this is a hard game to pick. We’ll go with the underdog Titans in a tight contest.

Pick: Titans +3.5

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 10
Cleveland Browns @ Buffalo Bills

The sportsbook odds makers should just remove this game completely. Flip a coin and don’t even think about it.

Pick: Browns +6

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 11
Houston Texans @ Arizona Cardinals

This is a tough game to pick, but who really wants to lay points with Arizona? This is the type of pressure-free game that the Texans are capable of winning.

Pick: Texans +5

Week 5 NFL Picks Power Ranking: 12
Washington Redskins @ Carolina Panthers

The Redskins beat the St. Louis Rams by two, then lost outright to the Lions, then beat the Buccaneers by three. Sports betting fans should know that the Redskins are awful. We’ll stick with the Panthers who are off a bye week.

Pick: Panthers -3.5
