Posted by Derrick Harper on October 1, 2019 in

Week 4 of the NFL season brought us some surprising results. Will we see more of the same, or will normalcy reign supreme in NFL Week 5? Let’s preview the NFL Betting matchups and make predictions on this week’s games.

2019 NFL Week 5 Odds, Overview & Predictions for Each Game

Los Angeles Rams @ Seattle Seahawks (Pick Em)

The Rams were stunned by Tampa Bay at home, while the Seahawks defeated the Cardinals. Both teams enter this game at 3-1, so this will be huge for both teams in the NFC West divisional race. Seattle is always tough to beat with the 12th man on their side. It’s hard to pick against Seattle at home. They win a close one.

New England Patriots (-16) @ Washington Redskins

The Patriots defense is dominant. In their last 20 games, the Patriots are 15-5 against NFC teams. The Redskins have no direction right now. The Patriots roll.

Buffalo Bills @ Tennessee Titans (No Line)

Until the status of Josh Allen is known, there’ll be no line on this game. If Matt Barkley is in charge, it’ll be tough for the Bills to go in to Tennessee and come out on top. In their last 20 home games, Tennessee is 15-5. Tennessee wins a close one.

Arizona Cardinals @ Cincinnati Bengals (-4.5)

Neither team has had a great start. The Bengals at home in October are money. In their last 12 October home games, the Bengals are 10-1-1. The Bengals are due for something good to happen to them. They win the game, but only by a field goal.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ New Orleans Saints (-5.5)

Tampa bay stunned the Rams and put up a ton of points. The Saints won a defensive battle over the Cowboys. When going ATS, the Saints have covered 13 straight times in the month of October. Tampa Bay won’t be able to withstand the Saints and their home crowd. The Saints win by 10.

Chicago Bears (-5.5) @ Oakland Raiders (London)

Even though the Bears lost Mitch Trubisky to injury, the offense looked better under backup Chase Daniel. Khalil Mack and the Bears’ defense has been a force this season. Mack is especially looking forward to the matchup with the team that got rid of him. The Raiders are 0-2 in London. The Bears defense will overwhelm the Raiders. Bear down!

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Carolina Panthers (-3)

Two rookie quarterbacks will be squaring off in this one as Minshew Magic will take on Kyle Allen. Minshew is 3-0 as the starter, while Allen is 2-0, so something’s gotta give. We’re not sure if we’ll see Jalen Ramsey or not. Jacksonville will go into Charlotte and beat the Panthers.

New York Jets @ Philadelphia Eagles (No Line)

With the status of Sam Darnold uncertain, there is no line. Philadelphia has been up and down this season. They lose at home to the Lions, and then go into Green Bay and defeat the Packers. In their last 12 games against NFC teams, the Jets are 2-10. The Jets are winless this season, and they’ll remain that way after Sunday’s game in Philly.

Minnesota Vikings (-4.5) @ New York Giants

Since Daniel Jones has taken over, the Giants have looked like a different team. Offensively, they have looked good, even without Saquon Barkley. The Vikings have a phenomenal defense, but their offense has been shaky. Other than Dalvin Cook, the Vikings haven’t had much spark to their offense. Look for Kirk Cousins to play well on Sunday and lead the Vikings to victory. However, they won’t cover the spread.

Atlanta Falcons @ Houston Texans (-5)

Atlanta can’t seem to beat AFC teams. In their last 12, they’re 1-11 straight up, and 0-12 ATS. Houston hasn’t looked good as of late. They struggle to protect Deshaun Watson, so their offense hasn’t been able to put up many points. But numbers don’t lie. Take the Texans here.

Baltimore Ravens(-3.5) @ Pittsburgh Steelers

The Browns took it to the Ravens on Sunday. At the time of this writing, Pittsburgh whipped the Bengals. If the Steelers of old were hosting this game, they would have a big advantage. However, this isn’t the Killer B Steelers. The Ravens need this game. They win by 7.

Denver Broncos @ Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5)

The Chargers dominated the Dolphins, while Denver lost a heartbreaker to the Jags. Denver comes into this one winless on the season. Many thought that the Broncos would be a defensive force under Vic Fangio, but that hasn’t happened. We could see Melvin Gordon in action for the first time this season. Chargers win 24-17.

Green Bay Packers @ Dallas Cowboys (-4.5)

Aaron Rodgers loves to play the Cowboys. Over the past 10 years, he’s 5-1 against Dallas. The Cowboys are hard to beat at home. Coming off of a tough loss at New Orleans, the Cowboys will be ready. Dallas wins, but doesn’t cover.

Indianapolis Colts @ Kansas City Chiefs (-9.5)

It’s nearly impossible to beat the Chiefs in Kansas City. The Colts struggle on the road. The Chiefs are going to roll over the Colts in this one. Chiefs win big!

Cleveland Browns @ San Francisco 49ers (-4)

The Browns will be making their second appearance of the season on Monday Night Football. The Browns seem to have righted the ship after a slow start. We’ll get to see if the Niners are for real, and how Jimmy Garoppolo handles the prime time spotlight. Browns win this one outright.
