NFL Week 5 Lines

A major litmus test opens Week 5 NFL betting up at online sportsbooks with Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers invading Soldier Field for a date with a Chicago Bears squad coming off its first defeat of the season; at home no less. Tampa Bay battled back from a 24-7 second quarter hole to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers in a game the GOAT had his best showing for his new team in throwing for 369 yards and 5 TD. Chicago’s defense rates out favorably against the pass and the run, but it’s played to one of the easier schedule strengths through the first four weeks of the season. The Bears dropped each of its last five matchups with the then Brady-led Patriots, and failed to cover the last three losing by an average of over 21 points per game. While the early money came in on the Bucs minus the points, some Bears money showed up on Monday dropping the betting line to +4.5 and the total to 44.

Provided the Titans have resolved their COVID-19 issue from last week, Mike Vrabel’s squad will return to its home gridiron for a crucial AFC tilt with Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Betting lines for the matchup are yet to hit the board due to the uncertainty as to whether the game will even take place. Should it be cleared for takeoff, NFL bettors will be in for a treat as the Titans look to hand the Bills their first defeat of the season. Easier said than done with Allen vastly improving his overall game to rank No. 2 in QB rating behind Russell Wilson and No. 2 in passing yards behind Dak Prescott. Buffalo has been stout against the run early on in allowing an average of 101 yards per game (No. 8), so it won’t be a walk in the park for Derrick Henry.

Derek Carr went on record after last week’s loss to the Bills and stated he was tired of losing. Unfortunately, he and his teammates will be dogged once again this Sunday when they venture into Arrowhead Stadium looking to snap a five-game losing streak to the division rival Kansas City Chiefs. Dating back to the 2013 season, the Raiders have only enjoyed the thrill of victory twice against the Chiefs who’ve dominated the rivalry by winning each of the last five (4-1 ATS) as well as 12 of the last 14 (10-4 ATS). Oddsmakers initially lined KC as 11.5-point favorites to rattle off a fifth straight win, but the number to beat is already up a full point to -12.5! Online sportsbooks will no doubt be rooting for Las Vegas to at the very least cover the number.

Fresh off earning their first win of the season in San Francisco, the injury ravaged Philadelphia Eagles will close their two-game road trip out in the Steel City where the Steelers will be waiting refreshed and reinvigorated after being forced into an early bye last week due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the Titans’ camp. The Eagles just put forth a gritty effort to knock the 49ers off last week, but they’ll need some of the walking wounded to get healthy if they’re to build a winning streak against an unforgiving Pittsburgh defense. T.J. Watt and company will no doubt be licking their chops to get a crack at the Eagles’ patch worked O-Line that had major issues keeping San Fran’s depleted front seven from wreaking havoc last Sunday night. The 7-point betting line hasn’t budged since hitting the board, but the O/U is down a full point to 44 with the betting markets of the belief both defenses dictate the game’s final outcome.

Joe Burrow just logged the first win of his NFL career after leading the Bengals to the 33-25 win and cover against the Jacksonville Jaguars. While the rookie has only logged an 89.7 QB rating and been sacked a whopping 15 times, he still ranks No. 7 in the NFL in passing yards with 1,121 overall. Pass defense has been the Achilles Heel of the Baltimore Ravens defense early on, but Burrow is going to feel the heat all game long regardless with defensive coordinator Don Martindale likely to dial up a multitude of blitz packages over the course of the game’s entirety. As bad Cincy’s front wall has been, Burrow is going to feel the pain. Linemakers don’t expect the Bengals to compete in this one evidenced by the near two touchdown pointspread. The Ravens swept last year’s rivalry but only split against the NFL odds as 10.5-point favorites in both matchups. The Bengals have however covered each of their last three visits to M&T Bank Stadium.

Though it won’t get the accolades and coverage it deserves, the Week 5 clash between the Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns might just end up being the most important AFC clash of the early season. Both teams opened their respective 2020-21 campaigns with horrific losses to the Jaguars and Ravens respectively, but each has turned it around in a big way by rattling off three straight victories. With the league’s No. 1 ranked overall defense making up for the shortcomings of its injury ravaged offense, Indianapolis has been tough to beat. That stop unit did however suffer a major casualty last week when Darius Leonard went down with an groin injury; he’s listed as questionable to go this Sunday. Cleveland’s backfield also enters this tilt in flux with Nick Chubb out for the foreseeable future due to an MCL sprain and Kareem Hunt battling through a groin injury. Indy will be out to log a second straight road win and cover in this spot as 3-point favorites with the total set at an inflated 47 due to both defenses being bit by the injury bug.

After the Chiefs and Packers took care of business in the chalk role last week, online sportsbooks will be bracing themselves as the Seattle Seahawks -7 and New Orleans Saints -7.5 partake in the prime time games as decided favorites on Sunday and Monday. Both squads will without a doubt be inserted into numerous legs of parlays and teasers, so both games will play a big role in determining how the books make out in Week 5. Early betting results find both favorites logging a majority of the action much to the chagrin of those setting the lines. Needless to say, but the books will be big fans of Kirk Cousins and Justin Herbert to close Week 5 out!
