The Kansas City Chiefs’ offense dominated the best defense in the NFL while the Packers, Falcons, and Eagles laid eggs in a raucous NFL Week 5 Sunday. Check out bookie insights for everything that happened in NFL Week 5!
Atlanta Falcons 17 at Pittsburgh Steelers 41 – Pittsburgh finally put it all together in a stunning beat down victory over the Atlanta Falcons. The Steelers had their offense rolling while their defense shut down a high-scoring team with a good quarterback. What’s up with Atlanta’s defense? Suddenly it’s become one of the worst in the league.
New York Giants 31 at Carolina Panthers 33 – The Panthers appeared to have the game under control. Then, the Giants furiously rallied to only fall short. After the game, Odell Beckham Jr. said that he believed the Giants had come together as a team. Hard to doubt that after watching the almost comeback on Sunday.
Jacksonville Jaguars 14 at Kansas City Chiefs 30 – Jaguars’ cornerback Jalen Ramsey should know that if you talk trash in the NFL, you’re likely to get burned. KC dominated the Jaguars’ defense. Part of that could be because Jacksonville plays ultra-aggressive. When you play aggressive against the Chiefs, quarterback Patrick Mahomes takes advantage.
Miami Dolphins 17 at Cincinnati Bengals 27 – The Fins took a 7-0 lead. Things fell apart soon after that. Cincinnati’s a real AFC North Division contender while the Dolphins should, again, make wholesale changes after the season.
Tennessee Titans 12 at Buffalo Bills 13 – You’re not going to beat every team with your defense, Tennessee. Unless the Titans unleash quarterback Marcus Mariota, disappointing losses like the one they suffered against Buffalo should continue.
Baltimore Ravens 9 at Cleveland Browns 12 – Most NFL handicappers were all over the Ravens at -3. This proved to be an excellent game for price per head agents to shelve their layoff accounts. It’s hard to see if any sportsbook owner had a liability on the Browns at +3.
Green Bay Packers 23 at Detroit Lions 31 – The richest player in the history of the NFL, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, called out his coach’s in-game play calling about 3 days before the Packers lost to the Lions. Looks like Aaron was right.
Denver Broncos 16 at New York Jets 34 – Oh, man, the wheels are off Denver’s usually competitive football team. The Broncos gave up 21 points in the 2nd quarter to a team most everyone thought they’d beat. What happened? NYJ rushed for 323 yards.
Minnesota Vikings 23 at Philadelphia Eagles 21 – – Hopefully, most bookies had set max betting limits on the Minnesota Vikings to beat the Philadelphia Eagles straight up in NFL Week 5. The line went from Philly -2.5 to Philly -3.5. How did the Eagles lose? Philly’s averaging between 20 to 21 points per game. It’s difficult to know what’s wrong with the offense. Maybe, the fact the Eagles have looked like they’re playing in quicksand when they have the ball has something to do with it.
Oakland Raiders 10 at L.A. Chargers 26 – The Raiders are 1-4 SU and 2-3 ATS after the Bolts dominated them in Week 5. Here’s a pay per head tip: promote bets on the Raiders.
Arizona Cardinals 28 at San Francisco 49ers 18 – Arizona won its first game of the season by leaning on its defense. The Cards forced 4 fumbles, recovered 3, and also picked off San Francisco quarterback C.J. Beathard twice.
L.A. Rams 33 at Seattle Seahawks 31 – Seattle had the Rams on the ropes. Los Angeles outscored Seattle 9-0 in the 4th to roar back for the win. The Seahawks exposed a few chinks in the Rams’ undefeated armor, though.
Dallas Cowboys 16 at Houston Texans 19 – Cowboys at Texans turned into a classic defensive struggle with the Texans coming out ahead only because the Cowboys’ offense can’t score touchdowns against anybody.
Online bookies should have used their layoff accounts on: Pittsburgh Steelers, Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, Detroit Lions, L.A. Chargers,
Bookie agents should have set max money line betting limits on: Buffalo Bills, Cleveland Browns, New York Jets, Minnesota Vikings, Arizona Cardinals
Things to Keep in Mind to Manage NFL Week 6 Betting
The Cardinals have gone 3-0 ATS in their last 3 games. Minnesota’s a big -10.5 favorite over Arizona. Consider shelving the layoff account in that game.
73% favor Philly to take down the Giants on Thursday. The Eagles are 1-4 against the spread this season, though.
Pittsburgh’s a +2.5 dog against the Bengals on Sunday. Based on the action already on the Steelers, bookies might want to set max betting limits on the Pittsburgh moneyline.
Bettors have already wagered the total on Kansas City at New England up from 57.5 to 59. Patriots’ coach Bill Belichick might try to slow the game down, though. Don’t head to your layoff account before handicapping the game yourself.
