NFL Picks, Week 5: Green Bay Packers A Lock Over Atlanta

Once again, we are here to share you wisdom and NFL picks insight with you. Our experts have racked up an impressive 31-29 record of picks against the spread for the NFL season so far. We've already laid out our picks for the Sunday early games for NFL Week 5, here's the afternoon, evening and Monday Night Football Hank Williams Jr. Memorial picks.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at San Francisco 49ers (-3): The 49ers defense is for real and the Bucs have been struggling to put points on the board. We also love to pick against San Francisco with our hearts but the mind says the spread's not enough. Pick: 49ers

San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos (+4): Will this be the week that Phillip Rivers finally goes into beast mode or will the injuries to his top targets still limited what they can do. The Bronco's like to give up passing yards so we're going with the former. Pick: Chargers

New York Jets at New England Patriots (-9): The Patriots for all their Brady still aren't defending very well. Unfortunately for the Jets, Sanchez is reverting to poor form and Rex Ryan is still...feet!. Pick: Patriots

Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons (+6): Why on earth is Green Bay only getting six points to the Falcons? Yes, it's a road game but it's not like Atlanta is a tough place to play and it's not like Atlanta is all that good. Pick: Packers

Chicago Bears at Detroit Loins (-6): The Bears continue to thrive in mediocrity while the Lions get a first look at Nick Fairley joining that already tough defense. Pick: Lions
