NFL Predictions- Week 5: Thursday Night Football


I finished the week at 8-5 SU and 8-4-1 ATS, so not too bad for the week. The record on the season is 41-20 and 37-22-2 respectively. I’ll be back over the weekend with the rest of the picks.

PACKERS (-8.5) over Vikings– Did the Packers solve their problems last week with the big win in Chicago?  If they did then I would expect them to really beat up Minnesota, but if not I’d expect a close game. The points are a lot to give here, especially in a divisional game, but I think the Packers have much more experience to understand how to prepare for a fast turnaround game on Thursday. I think the quick turnaround plays a major role especially with the Vikings coming off such an emotional win last weekend. That’s probably too much to come down from right away for them. Packers 31 Vikings 17
