2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools Week 5 Recap

By Jeff Stinger

It was another fantastic week of football; one that delivered with a shocking upset bright and early on Sunday morning. The thrilling game in London ended up being the most pivotal matchup over in our Nitro NFL Survivor Pools and we’re here to break down the scene following the developments from Week 5.

Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, odds, and special features for the entire duration of the 2022 NFL season. This time, let’s take a closer look at what transpired in the intense Week 5 action of the 2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools campaign.

2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools: Week 5 Recap


Packers Backers Sent Packing


Nitrobetting continues its season-long quest of delivering the best NFL survivor experience on the web with its Nitro NFL Survivor Pool contests with a total purse worth over 10,730 mBTC (~$204,000) across eight unique survivor pools.

Not many had predicted the New York Giants to stage an upset of the Green Bay Packers during Week 5’s London game. And yet here we are, with the Giants standing tall after a phenomenal 27-20 upset of the Packers and the G-Men having the second-best record in the NFC at 4-1.

Green Bay’s loss was felt by the survivor realm, as a good number of survivors had locked in Aaron Rodgers and Co. to win this particular matchup. Another rather stunning result came in the late-afternoon window of games as the Dallas Cowboys took apart the defending Super Bowl champions Los Angeles Rams, 22-10. These two outcomes played huge roles in shaking up survivor pools across the board.

In turn, there are only four remaining survivors in Nitrobetting’s big-money Nitro Survivor Pool down from six the previous week. There are also fewer survivors in our Rookie Pool now compared to the Captain Pool that’s one tier higher in terms of stakes. The Rookie Pool is now down to 34 survivors from 48 in Week 4, whereas the Captain Pool has 35 left standing despite entering the previous week with just 44 survivors.

Suffering a huge blow as well is the Prospect Pool, which saw 20 percent of its population evaporate from 93 survivors to just 74 remaining to date. All things considered, the 2022 Nitro NFL Survivor campaign has been extremely challenging and we commend all of those who’ve made it this far in their respective pools.

Here’s how the 2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pool landscape looks after Week 5:

NFL Survivor Picks for Week 6


Is it correct to double down on the Packers this week after their disappointing performance in Week 5? Green Bay will host the unpredictable New York Jets, who are coming off a huge 40-17 route of Miami with the Dolphins down to their third-string quarterback. The Packers are currently (-7) favorites to right the ship in the friendly confines of Lambeau Field, but survivors may be speculative of Cheesehead Nation’s credibility after the upset at the hands of the Giants.

Other intriguing matchups warrant survivor success for those still hesitant about picking Green Bay. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers travel to Pittsburgh to take on the struggling Steelers with a rookie QB at the helm, with Tom Brady and the gang currently set as (+8.5) road favorites. The Rams are also looking for a bounce-back effort in SoFi as huge (-11) favorites against a Carolina Panthers squad that had just fired head coach Matt Rhule. 

Lastly, the San Francisco 49ers pay a visit to the Atlanta Falcons, with the Niners slated as (-5.5) road favorites. Although those odds don’t necessarily suggest massive confidence in San Fran as an outright victor, there’s no denying that the Niners’ defense has been lights out and will likely have its way against a Falcons team still operating with a depleted backfield.
