Week 5 NFL Predictions: Will bye trends play a role?

As The Director readies his Week 5 picks, our resident experts check in with their outlooks and predictions.

As you go to do so you may want to consider the following information I just received via e-mail:

Week 5: Sunday, October 5th

OVER – Indianapolis at Houston
Prior to last year’s 29-7 win at Jacksonville, Indianapolis had gone OVER in eight straight post-bye week games. The Colts are scoring 33.7 PPG on their own in that span.

ARIZONA SU & ATS vs. Buffalo
The Bills are on the longest pre-bye week losing streak, dropping nine straight games, while going 2-6-1 ATS.

Since 2001, the Chiefs have proven a good bet both before and after the bye week, going 10-4 ATS combined (5-2 ATS each) in those scenarios.

TENNESSEE ATS at Baltimore
Since ’02, in games surrounding the bye week, Jeff Fisher’s Titans are a combined 9-2-1 ATS.
