2023 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools Week 5 Recap

By Jeff Stinger

Week 4 gave most of our survivors plenty of breathing room. That was no longer the case in Week 5, as several key upsets led to a rather significant amount of eliminations. Exactly how much damage was dealt to our eight main Nitro NFL Survivor buy-in pools?

Nitrobetting is here to take your bets into the end zone this 2023 NFL season. This time, let’s take a closer look at what transpired in the intense Week 5 action of our Nitro NFL Survivor Pools campaign.

2023 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools: Week 5 Recap

Trying Hard to Stay Alive in Week 5

Nitrobetting continues to deliver the best NFL survivor experience on the web with its 2023 Nitro NFL Survivor Pool contests with a total prize purse worth over 5.9 BTC (~$163,000) across multiple public and private survivor pools.

The biggest upset of Week 5 happened bright and early on Sunday morning when the Bills lost to the Jaguars in London, and it was this Buffalo loss that resulted in the majority of our survivor eliminations this week. After that, we also had a good amount of Broncos backers who were stunned by the visiting Jets, and a few die-hard Cowboys fans who thought it would be wise to bank on America’s Team against the undefeated Niners.

All things considered, there were definitely more eliminations this week than in Week 4. Our top-prized Nitrogen Pool is now down to a single-digit population count from 12 survivors last week to eight this week, while the MVP and Hall of Fame Pools are also each down to the ‘teens in player count. On average, about 20 percent of the survivor population was eliminated in Week 5 across all eight of our main buy-in survivor pools.

Here’s how the 2023 Nitro NFL Survivor Pool landscape looks after Week 5:

NFL Survivor Picks for Week 6

At first glance, the Chiefs as (-10.5) home favorites to beat the Broncos on Thursday night football appears to be a surefire survivor winner in Week 6. However, Kansas City is still a high-value survivor lock that could pay off much later down the schedule with more meetings against the likes of Las Vegas and Denver (again) still on the calendar. 

That being said, perhaps now’s the best time to invest in one of the two current leaders of the AFC East. The Dolphins are heavy (-13.5) home faves to win over the winless Panthers, and so too are the Bills as (-14.0) home favorites to rout the Giants. 

With a 3-2 record to date and after having just undergone a massive upset in the UK, this could be the best moment to take Buffalo in survivor. The Bills are going up against a putrid Daniel Jones-led G-Men offense and would want nothing more than to take out their frustrations from the Week 5 loss to the Jags on their underperforming neighbors from New York. Well technically, the Giants play in Jersey but such is the miserable life of a Giants or Jets fan, and pardon our digression as the Bills do look like the best survivor pick of the week.
