2019 NFL Week 5 Betting
Four weeks are in the books and NFL bettors have even more data to make informed decisions on how the games could play out moving forward. Week 4 saw the Philadelphia Eagles kick it off by going into Lambeau Field and defeating the Green Bay Packers as well as the Pittsburgh Steelers logging its first win of the season by dusting off the “Wildcat” formation. A pair of starting quarterbacks were also banged up with both Mitchell Trubisky and Josh Allen likely no-gos this Sunday. Week 4 only finds two teams on bye; them being the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins. All of the 30 other teams will be in live action so let’s dig into the prime time games and see what they offer up!

Week 5 kicks off in front of the 12th Man where the Seattle Seahawks will attempt to put an end to a three-game losing streak against the division rival Los Angeles Rams. Sean McVay’s squad enters the tilt off incurring their first defeat of the season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who went into the Coliseum and hung 55 points on their heads. Jared Goff was brutal even though he threw for over 500 yards and a couple of touchdowns. On the flipside, Seattle continued to enjoy paying the desert a visit after going into Glendale and handing the Arizona Cardinals yet another defeat. Chris Carson procured his first 100+ yard rushing effort of the season and didn’t fumble the pigskin away in the dominant 27-10 victory.
Though the Seahawks got swept in the season rivalry a season ago, Pete Carroll’s troops still went on to cover both matchups as 7.5 and 9.5-point underdogs. Both matchups went on to cruise past the closing total moving the over to a perfect 3-0 in the last three meetings. Though it opened up as underdogs, the Seahawks now find themselves short favorites to defeat the Rams on Thursday Night Football.
A rematch of the AFC divisional playoffs is set to go down in Kansas City on Sunday Night Football when Andy Reid’s Chiefs welcome the Indianapolis Colts into Arrowhead. Patrick Mahomes and company toyed with the then Andrew Luck led Colts a season ago in winning 31-13 as 4.5-point favorites in a game that wasn’t even as close as the 18-point final margin of victory indicates. The betting markets remember that one all too well and have bet heavily into the home team because of it. The Chiefs are now lofty 11-point chalk after initially opening up as 9-point favorites on the lookahead lines before Week 4’s slate even kicked off. After being held relatively in check in Detroit last week, total bettors have gone all in on the over with it currently 1.5-points higher than it originally opened up at.
Kansas City ended up covering the closing NFL odds in its lone home game played to date against Baltimore, but those that bought into the Ravens early on also cashed a ticket. The Chiefs have come out on top in eight of their nine played home games with Mahomes under center and went on to cover those games at a 5-4 ATS clip with the under holding a slim 5-4 advantage.
For the third time this season, Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns will grace the airwaves in prime time when they close Week 5 out on Monday Night Football against the NFC West leading San Francisco 49ers. Freddie Kitchens’ squad seemingly just turned its season around after going into Baltimore and taking it to the Ravens to even up their record at 2-2 both SU and ATS. The 49ers went into their bye week undefeated at 3-0 after knocking off the likes of Tampa Bay and Cincinnati on the road before pulling out an exhilarating come-from-behind win against Pittsburgh. This is one of the most evenly bet games of the week with both squads garnering even attention from NFL bettors.
In defeating both the Bengals and Steelers, San Francisco stands 5-5 SU and 4-6 ATS in its last 10 run-ins against AFC North opposition; they’ve failed to cover at home in each of their last two tries. Cleveland has covered its last four road games dating back to last season with the only outright defeat coming in the form of a 26-24 loss to the Ravens. The under has cashed in each of the last four skirmishes between these franchises with the last coming back in 2015.
