Week 5 NFL Betting Highlights

The NFL has had some exciting games through the first four weeks, and has a lot of exciting games to look forward to this weekend. Some of the teams who were expected to make the playoffs started slow, but seem to be back on track, and will be facing tough challenges this weekend that can affect their positioning at the end of the season. Here is a preview of some of the games to look out for this week.

Baltimore Ravens (3-1) vs. Indianapolis Colts (2-2), Sunday, October 5, 1 PM. ET. CBS.

Baltimore is on a three game winning streak, and will be going up against a team that has won two straight games. They will try to continue running the ball well, which is a big reason they have won their three games.

Andrew Luck has been on fire lately, throwing 8 touchdowns and 1 interception in his last two games, the Colts are hoping his great play continues against the Ravens, who allow opponents to throw for an average of 260.3 yards per game.

Game Line: The Colts are favored to win by 3.5 points, the Over/Under is 48.5 points.

Personal Pick: The Colts have played well at home, and will find a way to win this game.

Kansas City Chiefs (2-2) vs. San Francisco 49ers (2-2), Sunday October 5, 4:25 PM. ET. CBS.

This has the potential of being the best game of the week, the Chiefs played very well on Monday night against the Patriots, they got a lot of pressure on Tom Brady, forcing him to force some throws, and turn the ball over, and will try to do the same against Colin Kaepernick, who turned the ball over a lot when he got pressured by the Chicago Bears.

The 49ers defense showed flashes of their recent dominance last week against the Eagles, and thoroughly dominated the best offense in the league last week. They will have their hands full against the two headed running attack the Chiefs have, but they should be up to the task, since they have the second best run defense in the league.

Game line: The 49ers are favored to win the game by 6 points, the Over/Under is 44 points.

Personal Pick: Alex Smith will get payback against his former team, and the Chiefs will defeat the 49ers, which have been inconsistent this season.

Cincinnati Bengals (3-0) vs. New England Patriots (2-2), Sunday, October 5, 8:30 PM. ET. NBC.

The Bengals will try to kick the Patriots while they are down when they play on Sunday night, they will follow Kansas City’s game plan, and try to run the ball against the Patriots, who gave up 207 yards on the ground last week. Running the ball well will allow them to take some shots through the air against New England’s stingy pass defense.

The Patriots offense hasn’t been very effective this season, but they also had a slow start last year, and were able to fix it as the season went on. They are hoping they can fix it again this year, or else they could miss out on making the playoffs entirely.

Game Line: The Bengals are favored to win by 1 point, the Over/Under is 46 points.

Personal Pick: The Patriots are a veteran team that knows how to handle adversity, and will bounce back from their disastrous game in Kansas City with a win.

Seattle Seahawks (2-1) vs. Washington Redskins (1-3), Monday, October 6, 8:30 PM. ET. ESPN.

The defending champions will try to win their first road game of the year when they visit the Redskins, they won a close game at home in overtime against the Denver Broncos, and allowed Peyton Manning to throw for over 300 yards, they have had over a week to work on the mistakes they made in that game, and will be ready for Kirk Cousins and the Redskins.

The Redskins shot themselves in the foot against the New York Giants with six turnovers in their last game, with Kirk Cousins accounting for five of them, their defense also couldn’t stop Eli Manning, who had four touchdowns against them. They will need to avoid turnovers and play better defense against Seattle if they want to win this game.

Game Line: The Seahawks are favored to win by 7.5 points, the Over/Under is 45.5 points.

Personal Pick: The Redskins were embarrassed by the Giants last week, and will bounce back from the loss with a surprise win against the defending champions.
