NFL Week 5 Tips

Friday 09/10/20

11:20am Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Chicago Bears @ Soldier Field

It didn’t look good for the Buccs last week but Tom Brady pulled a win out of a hat. The victory saw them advance to 3-1 on the season, which is also the record shared by Chicago.

The Bears could find it tough for the rest of the season and that’s reflected in the odds for this game. Tampa Bay are $1.44 favourites and they should be too good on the quick turnaround.

Betting tip: Buccaneers to win @ $1.44Bet @ Sportsbet

Monday 12/10/20

4:00am Carolina Panthers vs. Atlanta Falcons @ Mercerdez-Benz Stadium

The Falcons were only 6.5-point underdogs last week to the Packers, but we have no idea why. They are struggling at 4-0 and punters shouldn’t back them with any confidence.

The Panthers are 2-2 on the season and they have looked the better of the two sides. A close game is expected on Monday but we are sticking with the Panthers.

Betting tip: Panthers to win @ $2.12Bet @ Sportsbet

Panthers by 7

4:00am Buffalo Bills vs. Tennessee Titans @ Nissan Stadium

Two unbeaten teams do battle as the impressive 4-0 Bills head to Tennessee, who are 3-0 after a bye round.

The Bills have looked like one of the best sides in the NFL this season and we are expecting their dominance to continue this week.

Punters should get good odds for the Bills, who will be the slight favourites.

Bills by 7

4:00am Las Vegas Raiders vs. Kansas City Chiefs @ Arrowhead Stadium

The Chiefs played poorly against the New England Patriots last week but they still managed to win 26-10.

Patrick Mahomes wasn’t able to get much done through the air and their running game wasn’t great. However, they are better than the Raiders, whose defense isn’t up to scratch.

The Chiefs will have to cover 13.5 points but that’s easily doable for them.

Betting tip: Chiefs –13.5 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Chiefs by 16

4:00am Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Jets @ MetLife Stadium

The Jets are making a claim for worst team in the NFL and it would take a brave punter to back them this week.

At 0-4, they are struggling and the Cardinals have looked solid at 2-2. Arizona, with quality QB Kyler Murray at the helm, should prove too good.

Bookmakers have the line at one touchdown, which is a fair line for Arizona backers.

Betting tip: Cardinals -7 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Cardinals by 12

4:00am Philadelphia Eagles vs. Pittsburgh Steelers @ Heinz Field

The Eagles are coming off an upset win over the 49ers and although they got the win, it wasn’t overly convincing.

They have troubles at the quarterback position and they also picked up some injuries throughout that game.

Facing an unbeaten Steelers side won’t help and we are expecting the home side to come away with the victory.

Betting tip: Steelers -7 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Steelers by 10

4:00am LA Rams vs. Washington @ FedEx Field

The Rams are travelling well this season and although coming off a loss, they should be able to rebound against Washington.

Despite starting well this season, Washington is now 1-3 and they are odds-on to lose again. Bookmakers have them as the $3.90 underdogs, so a win seems unlikely.

Take Rams –7.5 for value.

Betting tip: Rams –7.5 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Rams by 12

4:00am Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens @ MT&T Bank Stadium

We like what the Bengals are doing this season with their rookie quarterback, and they should be better than 1-3. However, they are about to come up against a high-scoring Ravens team.

The Ravens suffered an embarrassing loss to the Chiefs two weeks ago but rebounded with a win over Washington.

They will need to cover 12.5 points with bookmakers, but Ravens’ backers should be confident in their ability.

Betting tip: Ravens –12.5 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Ravens by 18

4:00am Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans @ NRG Stadium

The Houston Texans fired their coach last week and that should spur them on against the Jaguars.

The 0-4 start isn’t what this talented Houston team wanted to start the season, but they have faced tough opposition to date. Facing Jacksonville is much easier and we are expecting a breakout performance.

Houston are only six-point favourites, which is a better line than we expected.

Betting tip: Texans -6 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Texans by 13

7:05am Miami Dolphins vs. San Francisco 49ers @ Levi’s Stadium

The 49ers are struggling with injuries and they showed up after losing to the Eagles last week.

It wasn’t a good offensive performance and we’re not sure where they are going to get points from. The same can be said for Miami, but they are good enough to cover the spread.

Look for Ryan Fitzpatrick to work his magic and Miami a chance at winning late in the game.

Betting tip: Dolphins +8.5 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Dolphins by 1

7:25am Indianapolis Colts vs. Cleveland Browns @ FirstEnergy Stadium

The Colts are getting better with every game this season and Phillip Rivers is having an improved season.

They are 3-1 and they now face a rampaging Browns team, who are also 3-1 after holding on to beat the Dallas Cowboys.

Both teams match up well but we give the slight edge to the Colts, who are less inconsistent compared to the wayward Browns.

Betting tip: Colts to win @ $1.77Bet @ Sportsbet

Colts by 6

7:25am New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys @ AT&T Stadium

Much like their fellow New York team, the Giants have yet to win a game this season. The Giants are 0-4 and although the Cowboys are only 1-3, they are the better side.

Most punters will be expecting the Cowboys to come away with an easy win this week, especially considering the top play from QB Dak Prescott.

The 9.5-point spread should be covered.

Betting tip: Cowboys –9.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)Bet @ Sportsbet

Cowboys by 20

7:25am Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots @ Gillette Stadium

The Patriots blew their chances to beat the Chiefs last Tuesday, as the game was there’s for the taking.

Playing without Cam Newton made all the difference and we’re unsure if he will be back for this game. Regardless, the Patriots rarely lose two on the bounce, so expect a better effort.

Bookmakers have the line at –7 for the Patriots, which is generous.

Betting tip: Patriots -7 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Patriots by 10

11:20am Minnesota Vikings vs. Seattle Seahawks @ CenturyLink Field

The Vikings haven’t shown up this season but the Seahawks are showing why we liked them to go deep this year.

Seattle is 4-0 and they have beaten some quality teams along the way. They look tough to beat this week and the line is only set at 7.

They don’t often win blowouts, but that could happen this week.

Betting tip: Seahawks -7 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Seahawks by 14

Tuesday 13/10/20

11:15am LA Chargers vs. New Orleans Saints @ Mercedez-Benz Superdome

The Saints will have benefitted from having a week off and they should return with a win over the Chargers.

LA is 1-3 on the season and playing away from home won’t do them any good. Especially against a Saints team that rarely loses in the dome.

There is currently 8.5 points between them, which might not be enough for Chargers backers.

Betting tip: Saints –8.5 @ $1.90Bet @ Sportsbet

Saints by 14
