Bet The Over – NFL Week 5 High-Scoring GamesNoah Williams
Which teams are going to put up enough points to get over the totals in Week 5 of the NFL? A lot of times, like in Week 3’s game between Green Bay and Detroit, the over looks like a shoo-in, but it’s the under that takes the day.
See below for the high-scoring games that we think happen in NFL Week 5.
Bet The Over – NFL Week 5 High-Scoring Games
Minnesota at Green Bay, Total 47.5 – Thursday, Oct. 2
The total is 47.5. Green Bay’s defense is allowing 175.8 yards per game on the ground. That should set things up for running Minny QB Teddy Bridgewater to put some points on the board. We know that Rodgers is going to put points on the board.

St. Louis Rams at Philadelphia Eagles, Total 47.5
Philly should get tackle Lane Johnson back this Sunday. That will definitely help the Eagles protect QB Nick Foles. St. Louis has a decent enough offense to put up some points against a Philly defense that doesn’t always play all that strongly.
One thing to note is that the Rams had two weeks to prepare for this game. Expect the Rams’ offense to put up quite a few points in this one.

Buffalo Bills at Detroit Lions, Total 44
Sure, everybody is expecting the Detroit pass rush to dominate the Bills, but the QB switch from E.J. Manuel to Kyle Orton could really help the Bills use their primary weapons, WR Sammy Watkins and RB C.J. Spiller.
Detroit should score at will against a Buffalo defense that is allowing 266 yards per game through the air.
Houston Texans at Dallas Cowboys, Total 46
RB Arian Foster should be more effective for Houston in Week 5 and no matter what you may think after the Cowboys’ victory over New Orleans; Dallas’s defense is not that good.
The Texans should score 4 to 5 touchdowns in this one. Dallas should be good for at least 3 touchdowns. That’s an over.
No Calvin Johnson, Joique Bell, Cassius Vaughn, Travis Lewis, Theo Riddick or Joe Fauria at #Lions practice today.

Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts, Total 48.5
This should be one of those really fun shoot-out games. The last two Baltimore games have gone over with while the over is 4 and 0 in Indianapolis’ four contests. Don’t expect a lot of defense from either one of these teams on Sunday.
This could be a situation of who throws the most touchdowns, QB Joe Flaaco with the Ravens or QB Andrew Luck with the Colts. Each of those guys might get 3 to 4 a piece in this matchup.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Jacksonville Jaguars, Total 46.5
The Pittsburgh offense is averaging over 400 yards and 24 points a game. Le’Veon Bell, Antonio Brown and Markus Wheaton give QB Ben Roethlisberger plenty of weapons. Against Jacksonville, Pittsburgh should put up at least four touchdowns.
Is there any way for Jacksonville to counter and help with the total?
Yes, there is. The QB switch to Blake Bortles should help the Jags put more points on the board. That, and including running back Denard Robinson in the mix, will give the Jags plenty of chances to score because Pittsburgh’s defense is an absolute mess right now. Expect the Jags to put up at least 24 points in this game.
