NFL WEEK 5 EXPERT PICKS: HAMMERIN’ HANK GOLDBERG FEATURING TEXANS IN HIS BEST BETS!
NFL Week 5 Expert Picks: This is the same handicapper who enjoyed 15 winning seasons in his 17-year ESPN run.
NFL Week 5 Expert Picks: Legendary handicapper Hammerin’ Hank Goldberg enters Week 5 on a stunning run: Over the final 10 weeks of last season and through four weeks this season, he is 27-15 on his NFL best bets, an amazing 64 percent cash rate!
This is the same handicapper who enjoyed 15 winning seasons in his 17-year ESPN run. In 2017, Hammer competed against 10 top handicappers in the Las Vegas Review-Journal’s NFL Challenge and beat them all, finishing 50-29-6 in against-the-spread picks. Anyone who has followed him is WAY up.
Now, Hammer has locked in three confident best bets for Week 5. If you parlay his picks, you could be looking at a 6-1 payout!
We can tell you Hammer says the Texans (-6) will handle Jacksonville for their first win. “The Jaguars had three key defensive players get hurt last week,” Hammer told SportsLine. “Houston’s defense will play well. Deshaun Watson will have a big game against that Jags defense and he’s due for a big win. Lay it.”
Hammer, who has inside sources throughout the league, also jumped on the Colts vs. Browns matchup of surging 3-1 teams and the battle of Pennsylvania between the Steelers and Eagles. In one of those games, Hammer says, there is a complete mismatch, creating a spread that’s WAY OFF! You NEED to see his picks before getting down on NFL Week 5.
Here are Hammer’s picks, posted Wednesday:
INDIANAPOLIS @ CLEVELAND | 10/11 | 3:25 PM CDT
The Browns are playing great under their new coach. They beat Dallas more soundly than the final score indicates. The Cowboys got their points late against a cheap, safe defense. Even though they’re 3-1, the Browns are still kind of under the radar. Indy has a good defense but its top linebacker, Darius Leonard, is dealing with a groin injury.
PHILADELPHIA @ PITTSBURGH | 10/11 | 12:00 PM CDT
Look at their defensive stats: The Steelers are No. 1 in so many categories. And their running game is strong; they can play keepaway. And, they’re fresh after last week’s game with Tennessee was postponed. Lay it.
JACKSONVILLE @ HOUSTON | 10/11 | 12:00 PM CDT
The Jaguars had three key defensive players get hurt last week. Gardner Minshew throws for a lot of yards but he’s up and down. I think Houston’s defense will play well. And I bet the Texans had a party when Bill O’Brien got fired. Deshaun Watson will have a big game against that Jags defense and he’s due for a big win. Lay the points.
