The 2019 NFL season has been anything but predictable, except for the surging Patriots and whatever is going on with the Dolphins. NFL oddsmakers have released the opening betting spreads for Week 5 and here are the most intriguing matchups!
NFL Spread Betting Outlook Week 5
Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans -2
The Bills had the Patriots on the ropes as much as any team has had in a couple of seasons. Unfortunately, Josh Allen got hurt and Buffalo came up short in the 10-16 loss. Tennessee went into the ATL and dominated the Falcons 24-10. On paper, this looks like a defensive struggle. It might not be. If the Bills get Devin Singletary back, they’ll have a chance to move the football the way the Titans will.
There’s no guarantee that will happen. More importantly, it’s hard to see the Bills picking all the broken pieces up after the heartbreaking loss to NE. Titans make it 2 in row SU and ATS.
Chicago Bears -6 at Oakland Raiders
Man, the Oakland Raiders looked good in Week 4! As a 7-point dog, the Raiders jumped all over the home fave Indianapolis Colts in a rousing 31-24 win. Oakland faces a much more difficult task at home in Week 5.
The Bears beat Minnesota 16-6 even though quarterback Mitch Trubisky got hurt. Trubisky is listed as day-to-day. If he doesn’t play, backup Daniel Chase is more than capable of running the offense. Chicago covers.
New York Jets at Philadelphia Eagles -14
The Jets head into this game off a bye while the Eagles get some extra days of rest after they upset the Green Bay Packers this past Thursday night. Philadelphia is finally back on track after a couple of losses in their first 3 games to start the season. The Jets average 11 points per. That’s 31st in the NFL. Two touchdowns feels like a lot. It’s not in this matchup. Eagles roll.
New England Patriots -15 at Washington Redskins
Case Keenum was so awful against the New York Giants in Week 4 that Jay Gruden pulled him in favor of rookie Dwayne Haskins. The Ohio State product had a tough go of it when throwing 3 picks and only completing 10-of-17.
New England struggled against Buffalo. Still, they beat an undefeated team. On Sunday, they face one of the worst teams in the NFL. This should be a blowout of massive proportions. New England wins by at least 20.
Cleveland Browns at San Francisco 49ers -3
Before their bye, the 49ers had gone 3-0 and 2-1 against the spread. Cleveland might be without Jarvis Landry. Also, just because they managed to score 40 against the Ravens, it doesn’t mean they’ll do that versus a well-rested, 49ers’ defense. Go with SF to cover.
