It was a brutal week for the NFL Handicappers as a whole in Week 5 with an overall record of 77-105-5 (43.3%). They went 66-91-4 (42.0%) on ATS and 11-10-1 (52.4%) on Totals. The top handicapper of the week with more than one pick was the ActionNetwork with its Sharp Report – Reverse Line Movement (RLM) which went 6-1, followed closely by Walter Cherepinsky at WalterFootball who went 5-1-1. With the poor overall showing by the handicappers, the Consensus Picks also had a poor week as a result with a 1-7 record. Overall, we have a new leader with Sportline’s Jacob Gibbs (4-1), who is closely followed by the aforementioned Action Network Sharp Report – RLM (15-4-2).

Consensus Picks Recap

The Consensus picks finished Week 5 with a 1-7 (12.5%) record. Ugh! It might be time to try to build a system that more heavily weights the picks from the top handicappers.
