Bet on 2019 NFL Week 5
Every team will have reached the quarter pole of the 2019 NFL regular season at the conclusion of Week 5 with the San Francisco 49ers and New York Jets coming off their bye. The league also heads across the pond for the start of a five-game NFL International Series. Four games will take place in London with another scheduled later in the season for Mexico City. There are tantalizing matchups on this side as well with four divisional contests on the slate. Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions and Miami Dolphins will take the week off.
NFL games in London have been a smashing success with 80,000 fans routinely packing Wembley Stadium. That won’t happen when the league visits on Sunday since the matchup between the Bears and Raiders takes place at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with a listed capacity of just over 60,000.
The assembled group will be treated to good one, though, with Chicago’s Khalil Mack facing the team that let him go for the first time. Some conflicting reports from the Raiders and Mack’s camp about why he was dealt should make for some interesting moments for Derek Carr. The Raiders likely cringed when they saw the schedule. They’ve travelled to London twice and were blasted both times, losing 38-14 to Miami in 2014 and 27-3 to Seattle last year.
The betting week opens with a NFC West battle between the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks. If everything goes according to plan these two will be at the top of the division most of the season. The Rams won their second straight division crown last season by sweeping the regular season set. They’ve won three in a row overall and haven’t had much difficulty against Seattle’s defense by scoring 111 points in those games.
Nine games are slated for Sunday’s early window with a matchup of rookie head coaches in Cincinnati. Kliff Kingsbury brings No. 1 overall draft pick Kyler Murray and his Cardinals to face Zac Taylor and the Bengals. The Cards’ franchise has been around since the beginning of the NFL and the Bengals were introduced in 1966, yet they will be facing each other for only the 11th time.
Two other games match division rivals against each other. After playing the Rams last week, Tampa Bay ends its two-game road trip against last year’s NFC Championship combatants with a tilt against the Saints. The Ravens and Steelers saw some major changes to their rosters this offseason but that doesn’t take away from the intensity of this rivalry. The two hook up for the first time this season at Heinz Field.
There are just two games in Sunday’s late afternoon window, but they should be good ones. After struggling against their division foes for a number of seasons, the Chargers turned things around in their first year in the LA area winning four times against AFC West opponents. However, one of those losses was to the Broncos, which proved costly in the Bolts quest for a division title, stretching their drought to nine seasons. Aaron Rodgers has had some magical moments in Dallas and he gets the opportunity to add to his collection of gems when the Packers visit the Cowboys.
The betting week ends with a nice inter conference tussle between the Browns and Niners on Monday Night Football. After years of just plain bad football, both clubs are looking to change that in 2019 and they get the primetime slot because of it.
