Every fall during football season, I am constantly asked what NFL games I like against the spread. I am a prominent college football prognosticator but I typically avoid picking NFL games like the plague. Well, this season I am changing that. Because of the covid-reduced college season, I thought it would be a good time for me to spend some more time analyzing NFL games. Therefore, I will be posting my top 5 NFL spreads this week. These are in order from my most confident pick to least confident. Lines are based on the current consensus spreads on espn.com.
