It's hard to understand why the Colts aren't getting more love. Different teams have been named at the top of different power rankings as the games have gone on - Baltimore, New Orleans, Minnesota - but nobody seems to break out in a cold sweat thinking about having to play the Colts.

It's time they started. The Colts are 4-0, show no letdown from Tony Dungy's retirement and have their offense run by a future Hall of Fame quarterback who may be the best there's ever been. The Colts don't get the love because they should have more than one Super Bowl to show for the level of talent they've enjoyed since Manning was drafted eleven years ago. The Colts tend to let themselves down in the playoffs, and that means that bettors never fully trust them. But in the regular season Indianapolis is a consistent winner and will have far too much for Tennessee on Sunday night.

Tennessee is hurting in all kinds of ways at the moment but the biggest worry the Colts have is in the secondary. If there is one man put on this earth to victimize defense backs it's Peyton Manning. Indianapolis -4.5 with Sports Interaction is one of my NFL Week 5 picks.

The lowest total Sports Interaction is  has on the board this weekend is 37.5 total points scored between Washington and Carolina. It's horrifying to contemplate, but I think this game will finish under that very low number. Washington hasn't scored more than sixteen points so far this season, and with the way Carolina is struggling nobody is going to tell Jake Delhomme to put it up there unless he absolutely has to. Nobody scores very much on Washington either - this one could be grim. Under 37.5 total points scored between Washington and Carolina with Sports Interaction is  the second pick of the week.

On the other side of the football world, it'll be a shootout in Arizona when Houston visits the Cardinals. The Cardinals seem a little over-favoritized at -5.5 to me but if you back Houston you are then relying on one of the most inconsistent teams in the league to deliver your dough. You need something more solid than that when you're putting money down.

In this case, it's then best to rely on each team to play to its strengths of big offense and token defense. They can both run up scores, but they both get scores run up against them too. The total is 49 and high though it is, I think it can go higher. Over 49 total points scored between Houston and Arizona with Sports Interaction is  the third and final of my Week 5 NFL picks.
