Six teams are 4-1 or better, and eight others are 3-2. As the NFL passes the quarter pole and heads toward the halfway point, parity reigns supreme. Anything can happen on any given Sunday, like the highest-scoring offense in the league being shut out. Or the league’s last winless team getting a win.
Or the defending Super Bowl champions getting embarrassed for a second week in a row. The Rams’ offense is bad, and the AFC champion Bengals also lost again. And it looks more and more like two new NFL teams are going to rise to the top.
New York Jets (+7) at Green Bay Packers
For the first time since they won in NFL Week 1 of the 2018 season, the New York Jets are over .500. That’s no small feat, considering that they began the season with their starting quarterback injured and with many other key spots occupied by rookies.
But this Jets team has the ability, it has heart, and it now has a running game that can keep games close, especially against an offense that is sputtering like the Packers. The Jets getting a win at Lambeau Field is highly unlikely, but they are good enough to stay competitive and cover the touchdown spread.
Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks (Over 50.5)
In Week 1, Geno Smith was feeling out the Seattle offense, and Pete Carroll was feeling out Smith. In NFL Week 2, they were facing the 49ers, which kept the scoring low. But since that game and over the last three weeks, the Seattle offense has exploded, and the OVER has been hitting.
They cleared the over by 6.5 in Week 3, by 44.5 in Week 4, and by 26 points last week.
Seattle’s defense is not good, giving Kyler Murray a chance to have a big day, and that is why betting OVER 50.5 total points for this NFL game is one of the best bets of the day.
Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (-6)
Last week it was the Arizona Cardinals that covered the spread against the Eagles and held them to their lowest point total of the NFL season. And it is true that the Dallas defense is considerably better than anything the Cardinals have.
But this game is in Philadelphia, it’s under the lights, and the Linc will be rocking. That means the Eagles’ defense will get after a slower-than-normal offensive line, and Cooper Rush will suffer the first loss of his Cowboys career.
Dallas will generate very little on offense, and Jalen Hurts is just too good to struggle against the Dallas defense. Philly wins by more than a touchdown.
