The Weekend Picks Panel returns for Week 5, ready to give you breakdowns and picks for all of the Top 25 games against the spread. Week 5 does not exactly produce a hefty share of marquee games, but the point spreads on the Top 25 slate are much more intriguing. We are back to some of our favorite topics on the podcast, including what favorites might be looking ahead to big games down the road, and could be content to finish the game with a win that falls short of Vegas' projected margin of victory.

Remember you can see all of the Top 25 picks from Bryan, Jerry, Tom and myself at the CBSSports.com Expert Picks page, along with Dennis Dodd, Bruce Feldman, and Matt Hinton.
