The fifth week of the 2023 NFL season is coming to a close, and it featured a pretty good overall slate with a few pleasant surprises. We witnessed the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2) continue their overseas dominance against the Buffalo Bills (3-2), our Atlanta Falcons (3-2) bouncing back against the rising Houston Texans (2-3), and an absolute dismantling of the Dallas Cowboys (3-2) by the San Francisco 49ers (5-0).
Let’s get right to tonight’s pick, which I’ll be making on a straight moneyline (aka picking the winner) basis. I’ll still provide the information on the spread and over/under, for those interested. At the bottom, I’ll show the rest of the staff’s picks for the game.
Monday Night Football: Green Bay Packers (2-2) at Las Vegas Raiders (1-3)
The pick: Packers (+110)
Spread: Raiders -2.5 | Over/Under: 46.5 | Moneyline: Raiders -130, Packers +110
This is definitely not the most inspiring Monday Night Football game of the season, but it’s an important game for both teams. The Packers need a road win to try to keep pace with the Detroit Lions in the NFC North, while the Raiders need a win to keep any chance of contending for a Wild Card spot alive. Green Bay is banged up, but I ultimately trust that coaching staff and defense a lot more than Las Vegas.
