With the MNF still to play, underdogs went 7-6 in Week 5.  Favorites still lead the way at 37-36-3 for the season. Overs went 7-6, and now 39-37 overall.

The Las Vegas Supercontest top five consensus picks are still looking for their first winning week, once again going 2-3 ATS, and only 6-18-1 on the year.

I started the NHL season hitting 67% in the first week, but my Week 5 NFL picks kicked me in the teeth. I knew the Detroit pick was in trouble when Calvin Johnson was a surprise game-time scratch. The spread got steamed 3 points, but he's probably worth more than that. Despite everyone betting down the Texans to -3.5, Schaub had other ideas. The Seahawks and Broncos were in control of their games, but credit to Indy and Dallas for not folding. Finally, the Chargers fell back down to earth, reminding us all that they are, well, the Chargers.

The silver lining is that both teasers cashed. That brings them to 10-1 on the year.

Refresh for all the Week 6 picks throughout the week.
