Sports-Odds.com is pleased to announce the latest NFL Point Spreads for the Week 5 games set to kick off later today. Earlier in the week, saw the St. Louis Rams (3-2) upset the undefeated Arizona Cardinals (4-1) by the score of 17-3 as 2 point home dogs. One of the biggest questions the football betting expert’s minds this whether the home dogs will make a stand today or will the road favorites dominate like they did in Week 4.
There are five more potential Week 5 NFL Picks on home dogs available today. The Kansas City Chiefs +7 taking on the Baltimore Ravens. The opening line in this game saw the Ravens -4.5 but as you can see Baltimore has been getting almost all of the betting action. Indianapolis Colts +7 taking on the Green Bay Packers which has received even betting action all week. The Washington Redskins +3 taking on the Atlanta Falcons which has seen even betting action as well. The Jacksonville Jaguars +6 taking on the Chicago Bears which opened at Chicago -5 with betting action coming in on the Bears. And finally the New York Jets +8 taking on the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football which has seen steady betting action on Houston which should continue right up until kick off and it would not surprise us if we see the Texans -9 at some point.
There are a few potential Week 5 NFL Picks on the home favorites that might struggle to cover the line. Some of the ones that stand out the most include the Pittsburgh Steelers are -3.5 against the Philadelphia Eagles which has seen even betting action all week. The Cincinnati Bengals are -3 against the Miami Dolphins which opened at Miami +5 but the betting action has poured in on the Dolphins. And finally the Minnesota Vikings are -6 against the Tennessee Titans which saw the line open with Tennessee +5.5 but the early money has backed Minnesota driving the line up.
Let’s not overlook one of the biggest match ups of the day when the San Diego Chargers (3-1) head to the Big Easy to take on the winless New Orleans Saints (0-4) on the NBC Sunday Night Football Game. Drew Brees and company have not struggled to score, unfortunately the Saints defense is porous. The line in this game opened up with New Orleans -3 points but the Chargers have been getting lopsided betting action. We expect this game to be a shoot out but it would be really hard to take the home favorite in this one, New Orleans is -3.5 points.
