Week 5 of the 2019 season is upon us, and we’ve got all of the NFL picks and score predictions you need to get through the upcoming slate of games.

The madness level continues to climb as we head into Week 5 of the 2019 NFL campaign. The upsets keep coming, while a number of clubs have had no trouble distancing themselves from the pack. As the weeks roll by, these games will only get more and more difficult to predict.

That’s why we’ve got you covered yet again with another round of NFL picks and score predictions. Now I’ll never claim that these are going to be 100 percent correct. In fact, there’s a very good chance at least a few of my picks will be way off the mark. I will, however, make my selections based on research, experience and careful consideration.

Things weren’t as smooth as I would have liked in Week 4. Although it wasn’t my darkest hour, I wasn’t too happy with the 9-6 record I walked away with. That moves my overall record on the year to 41-21-1. It could certainly be worse, but I would be lying if I said I was completely satisfied with it.

But enough about the past — let’s dive into this week’s slate of games. Not all matchups are marquee, but there are a couple of games any football fan (regardless of allegiances) will want to tune in to.

So without further ado, here are my NFL picks and score predictions for the 15 games scheduled to take place in Week 5. Just keep in mind that I assume no responsibility if you choose to place wagers based on my picks — that’s your decision, not mine.

Week 5 Byes: Detroit Lions (2-1-1), Miami Dolphins (0-4)
