Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

Week 5 of the 2022 NFL season is getting underway with Thursday Night Football between the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos, but right now it’s time to look ahead toward the Sunday schedule. The London series continues this weekend, as the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers square off across the pond. Meanwhile, Sunday Night Football features a huge AFC North showdown between the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens, while the Philadelphia Eagles are taking to the road to put their undefeated record on the line against the Arizona Cardinals.

Each week we’ll be doing a millionaire parlay, picking every Sunday game on the money line for the chance at a massive payday. Sure, it’s a longshot; but you can’t score if you don’t shoot.

Without further ado, here is our 14-leg Week 5 millionaire parlay. It would pay out at +169932 odds!

Make sure to check out our NFL Week 5 picks for EVERY matchup!

Green Bay Packers (-360) over New York Giants

I doubt this London game will be as wild as Vikings-Saints was last weekend. The Giants’ entire QB corps is injured and even at 100% it’s nothing special.

Buffalo Bills (-950) over Pittsburgh Steelers

This is the biggest spread of the week by a country mile and there’s no need to overthink it. Buffalo should beat up on rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett.

Minnesota Vikings (-340) over Chicago Bears

This is not a very fun or interesting matchup aside from the fact that it’s a division rivalry game. Whatever the case, give me Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook over anything Chicago’s offense has to offer.

Detroit Lions (+135) over New England Patriots

Mac Jones…Bailey Zappe…. Bailey Zappe…Mac Jones. As if it matters! I don’t see the Patiots being able to keep up with the Lions’ offense.

New Orleans Saints (-225) over Seattle Seahawks

The bad news for the Saints is that they aren’t good. The good news for the Saints is that the Seahawks are bad. In fact, the Seahawks are even worse.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-390) over Atlanta Falcons

Tampa Bay probably didn’t expect its Week 5 date with Atlanta to be for first place in the NFC South. It’s still early, but the Bucs will be playing with a sense of urgency.

Los Angeles Chargers (-135) over Cleveland Browns

Justin Herbert should be getting better and better as he recovers from a rib injury – and he was already looking good in last week’s win over Houston.

Miami Dolphins (-175) over New York Jets

I don’t care if Tua Tagovailoa isn’t playing. The Dolphins are a far superior team to the Jets and it will show on Sunday afternoon.

Washington Commanders (+110) over Tennessee Titans

There aren’t a whole lot of teams that the Commanders can beat. Fortunately for them, they can beat anyone in the AFC South – including the Titans.

Jacksonville Jaguars (-305) over Houston Texans

Houston is the only winless team in the NFL. Victory #1 probably isn’t going to come at the expense of a rejuvenated Jacksonville squad.

San Francisco 49ers (-260) over Carolina Panthers

The 49ers put the absolute clamps down on the Rams on Monday Night Football. If they did that, just think what they can do to a team being quarterbacked by Baker Mayfield.

Check out our San Francisco 49ers vs Carolina Panthers predictions

Los Angeles Rams (-230) over Dallas Cowboys

Dallas has won three in a row with Cooper Rush under center, but the competition level has been unspectacular. Let’s see how he fares going up against Aaron Donald….

Philadelphia Eagles (-230) over Arizona Cardinals

The Eagles probably aren’t going to go undefeated. However, the Cardinals probably aren’t the team that’s going to hand Philly its first loss. Arizona is struggling in a big way.

Check out our Philadelphia Eagles vs Arizona Cardinals predictions

Baltimore Ravens (-170) over Cincinnati Bengals

Baltimore played in Week 4’s marquee matchup and squandered a 20-3 lead against Buffalo. Now the Ravens have another blockbuster battle on their hands and I don’t think they’ll make the same mistake twice.
