Drysdale’s NFL Week 5 picks against the spread

It is crazy to think that October is already here and Week 5 of the 2019 NFL season is already upon us!

Unfortunately, for Detroit Lions‘ fans, it's a bye week, which means we will not be able to watch our team take the field.

But that does not mean there will not be plenty of NFL football to watch on Thursday, Sunday and Monday.

After a 12-4 record against the spread in Week 3, I came crashing back down to earth in Week 4, going 5-9.

That being said, I have been doing a lot of thinking about Week 5 and I am confident I have a bead on quite a few of these games.
