The Cardinals got upset at home by the Rams to fall to 3-1. The Lions are the only team in the NFL without a win and they will be trying to change that this week as a home underdog but it’s hard to have any faith in them.
Patriots -8 at Dallas Cowboys (O/U is 49.5)
The Cowboys really miss Tony Romo and they find themselves eight point underdogs this week at home against the 3-0 Patriots. He’s yet to have a losing season. Matt Ryan is 70-44 as a NFL starter. The Texans got ripped by the Atlanta Falcons to drop to 1-3 on the season. Eight out of the 14 games being played this week have one team being favored by at least five points or more. This is a good chance for Derek Carr to emerge as a winner for the Raiders but is he up to the task?
49ers +7 at New York Giants (O/U is 43)
The Giants had not trouble last week going into Buffalo and upsetting the Bills as decent sized underdogs. The Packers are undefeated at 4-0. Rex Ryan has always liked QBs who can run because he’s said they are the hardest to defend. Philip Rivers is 90-58 as a starting QB in the NFL, all with the San Diego Chargers.
Week 5 in the NFL is shaping up as a week with many clear favorites and underdogs. The Bengals are 4-0 but the Seahawks are better than any of the teams they beat. If you have to bet this game take the Texans because even if Andrew Luck plays he’s probably not healthy.
Seattle +1 at Cincinnati (O/U is 44.5)
The Seahawks got lucky and beat the Lions on Monday night but did not look like a great team without Marshawn Lynch. Here is a list of the NFL betting odds and lines for Week 5 of the 2015 season. Tyrod Taylor for the Bills has completed 71.7% of his passes this season. Alex Smith is 58-50-1 but only 1-3 this season. Good luck to all the NFL teams and especially the bettors this week!
Indianapolis even at Houston (O/U is N/A)
The odds and lines for the Thursday night NFL game are really up in the air due to the uncertainty regarding Andrew Luck. You always have to give QBs like Cutler a shot because of his arm and you’re getting 9.5 points but betting the Bears is not for the faint of heart.
Washington +8 at Atlanta (O/U is 47.5)
Hard to read the 2-2 Redskins so far this season but the 4-0 Falcons have looked pretty good. Joe Flacco is only 1-3 this season but his career record in the NFL is 73-43.
Buffalo -3 at Tennessee (O/U is 42.5)
Do you believe in Marcus Mariota as a starting QB in the NFL? If you do then take the points against Rex Ryan and the Bills this week. He was only 10-22 over the last two seasons, though, but now he’s 4-0 this season. Chip Kelly needs to turn things around quickly but can he do it with Sam Bradford as his QB?
Chicago +9.5 at Kansas City (O/U is 45.5)
Jay Cutler came back from injury and led the Bears to a 22-20 home win over the Raiders. On paper this week, though, the Eagles are the better team. Cutler is 62-60 as a NFL starter. The Colts managed to scrape by the Jaguars last week 16-13 but needed OT to win the game with 40 year old Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback. He’s yet to lead his team to a winning season. The Bears would not have won the game with Jimmy Clausen playing. That game is not listed for the over/under due to the status of Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. This week, though, the Giants are favored by seven over the 49ers at home on Sunday night. The 49ers beat the Vikings at home in Week 1 but have lost their next three games by a combined score of 93-42.
Steelers +3 at Chargers (O/U is 45)
Michael Vick played well for the Steelers last week but they still lost in OT to the Ravens. All the over/unders are also listed except for the Thursday night game between the Indianapolis Colts and the Houston Texans. Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning are not the best coach and QB in the league but they’re not bad as underdogs. The Raiders are 2-2 this season and playing hard for new head coach Jack Del Rio. Brandon Weeden’s record as a starting QB in the NFL is now 5-18. How does that happen? Until there is answer for that you have to be leery of the Buccaneers. Russell Wilson is 38-14 and he’s never had a losing season either.
St. The Rams are up against it trying to win at Lambeau but 9.5 points is a lot of points to give in the NFL.
Saints +5 at Philadelphia (O/U is 48.5)
Sam Bradford is now 19-33-1 as a starter in the NFL. His career record as a starting NFL QB is 17-35 and he’s 36 years old. Five games have one team favored by at least one touchdown this week.. Where exactly do the Cleveland Browns think Josh McCown is going to lead them? McCown is now 1-13 in his last 14 NFL starts. Drew Brees is 118-86 as a starting quarterback in the NFL. Tim Tebow not withstanding.
Jacksonville +3 at Tampa Bay (O/U is 42.5)
After posting a 81-63 record as a head coach in Chicago and getting the Bears to a Super Bowl, Lovie Smith is now just 3-17 in Tampa Bay. On the other hand, Blake Bortles is now 4-13 as a NFL starting quarterback for the Jaguars including 1-3 this season.
Arizona -3 at Detroit (O/U is 43.5)
The Lions could have beaten Seattle on Monday night but they make mistake after mistake on the field. Vick has a 59-51-1 record as a starting QB in the NFL but he’s just 6-14 since 2012. Eight points is a lot to give up but if you like the Redskins you are relying on Kirk Cousins and his 4-9 record as a NFL starter.
Cleveland +6.5 at Baltimore (O/U is 43.5)
Josh McCown played well last week for the Browns but they still lost their game. This week he gets to face a coach who specializes in confusing great quarterbacks let alone bad ones.
Denver -5.5 at Oakland (O/U is 43)
Peyton Manning is clearly on the downside of his career but he’s got the Broncos at 4-0 this season. Louis +9.5 at Green Bay (O/U is 46.5)
The Rams have wins over Seattle and Arizona and losses vs the Redskins and Steelers. Andy Dalton is now 44-23-1 as a starter in the NFL
