We got it all in our Week 5 Tips! Take some of Wade & Ryan’s betting advice, then meet us on Sunday at the Sports Bar Old Street!
NY Jets (1-3) vs Falcons (1-3) -3 +46
US fans might bemoan the level of the teams playing at Tottenham on Sunday, but UK fans are just happy to have a live game to watch again.
Technically the Falcons are the ‘home team’ in this one, as they look to right the ship and get out of the losing doldrums.
It’s been a rough season thus far for Atlanta, as injuries and O line have made Matty Ice quite luke warm in the 2021 season.
For the Jets, this was supposed to be a rebirth year with Wilson and Saleh.
Sadly, the Jets look like the same old Jets, as they haven’t really found what makes the team unique, instead waiting to see if Zach is going to develop in time.
Ryan is big on the Jets in this one, as he vowed to never back the Falcons ever again after they let him down again in week 4.
He thinks that they will grind out a victory and thwart the home town birds.
Wade likes the veterans on the Falcons to deliver a victory on Sunday. Matt Ryan should have some time to deliver the ball against a stiffening Jets D.
The game will likely start slow, and end on a zip, with the Falcons causing to an easy victory.
Ryan-Jets 24 Falcons 23
Wade-Falcons 24 Jets 20
-4 Titans (2-2) vs Jaguars (0-4) +48.5
Urban Meyer is a dead man walking. With 4 bad losses in a row, and a grinding session with a college girl on the internet, the fat lady must be warming up her pipes in Jacksonville.
This must be a do or die game for Urban, as an 0-5 start with Trevor Lawrence at the helm is truly unacceptable given the resources allocated to this rebirth.
The Titans too are in difficult situation given their slow start. Key wide receivers are down, the O line is a mess, and Tannehill looks like he is tumbling from his 2020 numbers.
Ryan likes the Titans to turn this one around, pegging the Jags in a blowout.
Wade too thinks that the Titans and the legs of Derek Henry will gash the Jaguars all day long.
He also predicts that Urban Meyer will be fired Monday, and won’t make the trip to London.
Ryan-Titans 33 Jags 21
Wade-Titans 31 Jags 20
-3 Packers (3-1) vs Bengals (3-1) +49.5
Aaron Rodgers is coming down from a flirty filled victory over the Steelers last week, as he showboated for his potential new coach Mike Tomlin in an easy victory.
The Packers are 3-1, but with injuries to Alexander last week, plus a weak secondary, make them a bit more accessible to teams that can chuck the ball.
Joe Burrow and the Bengals are off to a wicked start. Cincy has added more protection to Burrow, allowing him to find his speedy receivers down field, as well as open up more holes for their running game.
Ryan thinks that A-A-Ron will come into the cat house and kick the litter all over the floor en route to tight victory over the Bengals. He thinks Rodgers and Adams will have a big game.
Wade likes the hometown Bengals for an upset here. With Tee Higgins returning, the Bengals have enough tools to keep tossing it to the backfield to give the cheese heads trouble.
Ryan-Packers 30 Bengals 23
Wade-Bengals 30 Packers 28
