Overall Standings

1. English – 42-21

2. Papson – 41-22

3. Wendell 39-24

Papson with a huuuuge week going 13-3 (rumor has it he went 9-0 ATS last week as well)! English with a very solid 11-5 himself and Wendell bringing up the rear with a very mediocre 9-7, dropping him to last in the standings (a familiar spot in his fantasy leagues as well). Papson went on a limb with a few games and was rewarded with the big week. Some very interesting games are on the slate for this week with the Thursday Night Football game pitting a couple two-win teams against each other in the Pats and the Bucs. If the Bucs defend home turf, the Pats will be sub .500 through five games for the first time since 2002 (that is 15 years if you are counting at home). Meanwhile, Matt and Stephen’s beloved Eagles are heavy favorites to move to 4-1 and be well atop the NFC East. The Rams host the Seahawks and we will see how good this new look Jared Goff offense really is, and DeShaun Watson and the new look Texans will try to knock off the league’s last unbeaten team, the Chiefs, on Sunday Night Football. Here are our picks for Week 5:
