NFL Week 5 Betting Odds

A critical matchup between top AFC teams took place in Week 4 with the Buffalo Bills sending a message that they are still alive and well in the conference. The top two scoring teams in the NFL didn’t disappoint combining for 68 points to easily cash the OVER on the NFL betting line when Josh Allen threw for 320 yards and four touchdowns and added another on the ground in Buffalo’s 48-20 victory over Miami forging a tie at the top of the AFC East.

Now it’s time for the NFC to showcase two of its best with the undefeated San Francisco 49ers hosting the Dallas Cowboys in primetime on Sunday night. The Niners overcame a slow start to cover the 16.5-point spread against the Cardinals thanks to Christian McCaffrey’s five total touchdowns. He ran for four scores with another TD reception. The Niners put an end to Dallas’s last two seasons with playoff wins and covers, renewing a rivalry that started when both clubs were the best in football in the early 1990s. San Francisco opened as a 3-point favorite in Sunday’s final game.

The betting week opens with the Chicago Bears looking to end a 14-game losing streak when they visit Washington’s football team on Thursday night. No loss during the slide was as painful as Sunday’s. It appeared as though Chicago was on its way bursting out to a 28-7 lead, however, when you stink things just happen. Justin Fields had his best game of the season throwing for 335 yards, but a pair of gaffes proved fatal. Denver had a TD return after Fields was stripped sacked, and the QB tossed a pick to end the game. The Bears are getting 6-points on the early line with the total at 44.5.

We’ve also reached the point where bye weeks start coming into play. Four teams – Browns, Chargers, Seahawks and Buccaneers – are off in Week 5 leaving fewer betting options on the table. I guess it’s a good thing that certain menus have expanded so we can quench our betting thirst. We also have an early game on Sunday morning with the Jacksonville Jaguars staying in the UK to tangle with the Bills in London. The Jags enjoyed the early part of their trip stopping a two-game losing strike with a win and payout over the Falcons. After opening with an upset loss to the Jets, the Bills obliterated their last three opponents by a combined score of 123-33. The Jags have won two of the last three games in the series holding Buffalo to a total of 30 points.

With Miami’s loss in Week 4, the Philadelphia Eagles are the other remaining unbeaten team. Philly needed overtime to beat Washington 34-31. The offense is rounding into form but the Eagles defense has to be concerned after allowing the game-tying TD on the final play of regulation. The Eagles have played over the closing total in three of four games.

In a scheduling oddity the four winless teams played each other in Week 4 guaranteeing at least two teams would enter Week 5 without a win. The Broncos rallied to beat Chicago while the Vikings held on to beat Carolina. The return of Bryce Young didn’t help the Panthers as the No. 1 overall pick threw for only 202 yards and was sacked five times. Picking up that first win isn’t going to be easy with a visit to NFC North-leader Detroit. I guess the Lions have arrived opening as a 9.5-point favorite, the first time since the 2017 campaign they’re laying that many points.

After a wacky Week 3 that saw three dogs of at least 9.5 points win outright, there was little excitement on the Week 4 spreads. The Niners had the biggest line at -16.5 against Arizona and covered in their 35-16 romp. Getting 9.5 points in their games, the Commanders and Jets stayed within the closing line to earn payouts for their backers. The biggest opening line on the Week 5 board has the Dolphins positioned as a 10.5-point favorite against the New York Giants.
