As the NFL rounds the quarter pole on the season, we take a look at the best point spreads to bet in Week 5.
Green Bay Packers (-3) at Cincinnati Bengals
The Packers’ start to the season is a distant memory. From a blowout loss to New Orleans to three straight good wins and three wins in a row against the spread.
Aaron Rodgers is fine. His offseason is a non-factor. Aaron Jones, playing with his father’s ashes, looks like the star he is, and when he’s not finding running lanes, he’s catching passes. And as pass catchers go, no one is better than Davante Adams.
The Bengals are also 3-1 on the season, but injuries are becoming an issue, and they most recently played an uninspiring game against the Jaguars.
The Packers go into Cincinnati and win by a touchdown.
Miami Dolphins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-10)
The Dolphins are still a week away from getting Tua Tagovailoa back, which means it’s Jacoby Brissett under center for another game. And this time, it’s a game at the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers.
The Bucs have failed to cover the spread for two straight weeks and are just 1-3 on the season ATS. But those three losses have come against teams proving to be better than we thought they were. The Dolphins are failing to cover the spread against the likes of the then-winless Indianapolis Colts.
Miami is one of the biggest disappointments of the early season, and it will get worse this week with a loss at Tampa Bay by at least two touchdowns.
Philadelphia Eagles (+3.5) at Carolina Panthers
Carolina was the most unlikely of the undefeateds through three weeks, and now we’re wondering just how far the fall will be without Christian McCaffrey. Maybe not too far, but far enough that they shouldn’t be more than a field goal favorite against the Eagles.
Jalen Hurts is playing well, and the Eagles front-seven will keep Sam Darnold off-balance all afternoon. If the Panthers do manage to rebound for the win, it will be by less than three points. Take the points and the Eagles.
Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville Jaguars (+4.5)
The Titans defense is going to be a liability all season long and against all opponents – even the bad ones. The Jaguars are definitely a bad team, but Tennessee just got torched by Zach Wilson, and Trevor Lawrence will have a big game on Sunday.
The Jags may not pull off the upset, but the bad Titans’ defense keeps this game to within three points. You may not want to do it often, but this week take the Jags.
Pay Per Head Software
It’s Week 5 of the NFL season, but that means there are still 13 more weeks to go after this one. That is plenty of time to join forces with a top pay per head software provider and increase your profits.
