Vegas odds have installed the Packers as -2½(-110) point road NFL pciks week 5 favorite. The Packers have won the last four NFL picks contests between the two teams.
The Redskins (2-2) are atop the NFC East after two close NFL predictions victories over divisional foes Dallas and Philadelphia. Offensively, they have struggled to score points and that could be a problem in Sunday's week 5 NFL picks contest against one of the better offensive-teams in the NFL. Running back Clinton Portis is out this week, meaning ex-Bronco Ryan Torrain will get the bulk of the carries. Santana Moss and Chris Cooley continue to be the only reliable targets for quarterback Donovan McNabb who made a triumphant return to Philadelphia last week. The Redskins need another player, maybe Anthony Armstrong or veteran Joey Galloway, to make plays in the passing game.
The Packers continue to be an aggressive and attacking defense heading into this NFL picks week 5 battle, with 16 sacks and 7 turnovers. Linebacker Clay Matthews Jr. has 7 of those sacks and is playing like an All-Pro in his second year. Charles Woodson is still playing at a high level at cornerback this NFL picks season and his touchdown return was the difference in last week’s NFL preedictions victory against Detroit. Green Bay has had trouble stopping the run but that shouldn’t be a factor against the Portis-less Redskins.
Both of these teams have been involved in a number of tight NFL picks contests but Green Bay figures to have enough offense to cover the Vegas spread and continue their winning ways against the Redskins.
