Looking for insight on who to pick in the Week 5 games? We’ve got the answers.

This week the oddsmakers see a strong weekend for the home teams, as 10 of the 14 Week 5 games have the home teams as favorites. Our panel of BTB writers is not quite as optimistic for the home teams, only picking them in eight of the 14 games.

“Of course they will,” say 10 of 11 BTB writers. And without further ado, here are our picks for Week 5, 2017.
