Week 5 NFL Betting: 5 Games’ Football Odds You Have To Bet On

NFL Week 5 “Insider Betting”

Well we’re starting to see a trend in the NFL as far as Thursday night games go. The Packers kept the streak going of Thursday night blowouts with a beat down of NFC North foes the Minnesota Vikings. I may have to start putting this feature out a few days earlier to include these games as they seem to be easy money on the spread as well as the over/under.

That being said, we’ve got some Sunday games to look at to help you get your bankroll up.

Moving on to the weekend games now, and I’m hoping to do a bit better than my 2-3 record a week ago, bringing my season record to 12-8 in this feature. Hopefully this week turns out a bit better, and if there’s some silver lining, I went 2-3 in week two and responded with a 4-1 picks record in week 3.

Some interesting games on the NFL sched this week that I’m excited to sink my teeth into so let’s get to it, shall we?

St. Louis vs Philadelphia

Week 5 NFL Odds Eagles -7

The Eagles suffered their first loss of the season a week ago in San Franciso by a narrow margin of 26-21. Don’t let that scoreline fool you though, this game really wasn’t close.

Philly struggled horribly on offense and didn’t run a play in the Niners’ half until very late in the game. Special teams and defense came up huge for the Eagles in just keeping them in the game. The Eagles’ O-line is still decimated by injuries but will get Lane Johnson back from suspension this week.

No run game to speak of lately for Philly and QB Nick Foles looked very unsure of himself last week with the lack of protection and inability to lean on LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles.

Week 5 NFL Pick: St. Louis is rested and coming off their bye in week 4. Their 1-2 record is a bit deceiving, they could’ve and by all accounts should have beat Dallas and sit at 2-1. The Eagles’ last two wins have come by a combined six points. I don’t think Philly covers that touchdown spread, go with the Rams.

Arizona vs Denver

Week 5 NFL Odds Broncos -7.5 (O/U 47.5)

This is the match up I’m most looking forward to this week (maybe tied with Cinci vs New England – more on that below).

The Arizona Cardinals are a very legitimate 3-0 team. These guys are flat out good, and are terrifying on defense. The Cards have yet to give up more than 17 points in a game this season. Both teams are coming out of bye weeks so expect them both to be at the top of their games.

Denver is a machine at home however and there doesn’t seem to be any defense that can really silence them. They went into Seattle and hung 20 points on a defense that many consider to be the best in the league and nearly invincible at home.


Week 5 NFL Pick: That 7.5 point spread is not at all enticing and I won’t go near it. The Cardinals don’t have the offense to get into a track meet with Denver and the D is going to need to step up in a big way. Look for Arizona to slow the pace on offense to keep Peyton Manning on the sidelines and try to win a grind ’em out game. Take the under in this one.

Baltimore vs Indianapolis

Week 5 NFL Odds Colts -3.5

Well it looks as if the Colts have found their rhythm on offense. Granted in their last two games they have faced some weak opposition in the Jaguars and Titans but racking up 44 and 41 points against those two respectively has the Colts at 35 points per game and first in the NFL for points per game.

Baltimore won’t keel over and let the Colts walk on them but Baltimore is a 3-1 team who I don’t think is anywhere near that good. They squeaked out a win over the Browns two weeks ago and beat up on a hapless Panthers team last week. Indy is going to bring it to the Ravens and really test their mettle this week.

Week 5 NFL Pick: When the Ravens faced a strong Cinci offense in week one, the Bengals had their way with them. Baltimore’s lone road game this season was a narrow win over the Browns. Look for Indy’s offense to continue rolling this week and win this one while covering the 3.5 points.

Cincinnati vs New England

Week 5 NFL Odds Bengals -1 

A prime time home game for the Patriots and they aren’t the favourite? Getting blown out in the Monday nighter against the Chiefs probably didn’t help their cause with the odds makers this week, but still, -1 is essentially a pick’em.

The Bengals are a very good team, and they’re rested after their week 4 bye. New England is in trouble this week and though I’ve said earlier this year to always go with Tom Brady after a loss, this time it’s really hard to get behind the Patriots.

New England just doesn’t have enough weapons on offense and Brady has struggled because of it. As has long been the case with the Pats, the team wins and loses with Tom Brady.

Cinci has been dominant this season, their offense is very good, and their defense is good enough for what their offense is capable of. This is a statement game for the Bengals, as beating the Pats in New England in prime time will go a long way to cementing themselves as a legitimate AFC powerhouse.

Week 5 NFL Pick: Cinci gets it done this week, thus creating a huge downward spiral for the Pats. Cinci is just a better team in all facets, and all that the Pats really have going for them is that Tom Brady is still their QB. Take Cinci to win this one.

Pittsburgh vs Jacksonville

Week 5 NFL Odds Steelers -6

This is a game that I would’ve been dreading as a trap game for the Steelers this week, had they actually been able to beat the Bucs last week.

A win in convincing fashion last week for Pittsburgh would’ve had them as a much larger favourite (somewhere in the 10 to 11 point range), instead they come in favoured by less than a touchdown.

That should be all the motivation the Steelers will need to blow out the Jags who are downright terrible. Getting away from home will be good for Pittsburgh this week who have not been convincing at Heinz field, earning a narrow last minute field goal victory over the Browns in week one, and a disappointing loss to Tampa a week ago.

At 0-4 the Jags rank dead last on defense in points per game allowed (38), total yards allowed per game (451) and pass yards per game (321). It doesn’t get much better on offense where they’ve managed just 14.5 points per game (31st in the NFL) and 279 total yards per game (also 31st).

Week 5 NFL Pick: A six point spread should be treated like a slap in the face for the Steelers who will be looking to right the ship after last week’s catastrophe against Tampa. Pittsburgh wins this one big.
