Colin Cowherd fancies himself a betting expert, sharing his “Blazin’ 5” NFL picks at the end of each week. Hopefully you haven’t been taking his advice. The Fox Sports personality hasn’t had a winning week yet, falling to 12-19-1 on the year after a dreadful Week 6, going 1-4 against the spread with his lone victory coming in Baltimore’s win over the Chargers (the Ravens easily covered as 2.5-point home favorites).
As documented by Twitter user Chris Hanes, Cowherd’s picks have gotten progressively worse through the years, culminating in his disastrous 2021. Cowherd’s slump has been a running joke on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, where celebrity prognosticator Chris Jericho continues to wipe the floor with Cowherd, beating him on a weekly basis while picking teams seemingly at random with no research whatsoever. Followers on social media are demanding accountability from Cowherd, whose cold streak dates back to last season, when he limped to a 3-7 record over his final two weeks.
