NFL Odds, Lines, Point Spreads – Week 5 Betting Update to Pick Each Game



For the first time in the 2021 NFL season, the favorites were able to win the week. The underdogs were 7-9 against differential after going 30-18 combined in the first three weeks of the season. There were still some big surprises, particularly the Jets and Giants, and the Patriots just missed out on being in that category as well, but the favorites played much better in Week 4 after a difficult start to the season.

Heading into Week 5, both bettors and bookmakers have one month of data to analyze with each team. There are major changes within the NFL every week thanks to quarterback changes and injuries, so the advantages may not be clear at first. That said, those who are watching things closely will find themselves making winning choices most of the time.

Injuries continue to be the biggest talking point affecting the best bets and spreads before Week 5. Most importantly, there are a pair of hit quarterbacks in Andy Dalton and Jimmy Garoppolo that could make way for rookies. .

Dalton (knee) has missed the last two games, but Matt Nagy says he will start if he is healthy. Garoppolo is a question mark; thought he would be out in Week 5, but Kyle Shanahan has yet to make a decision on that front. If they can’t go, Justin Fields (Bears) and Trey Lance (49ers) will be chosen to start. That will have an impact on spreads in each of the team’s games, as Fields has started twice while Lance played on a limited basis in Garoppolo’s place last week.

Knowing the latest news on injuries is essential for bettors. So is knowing the latest odds and trends for each team. By looking at each aspect of those three aspects, they will help you find a winning formula, except for the occasional week when chaos reigns. We hope that is not the case in week 5.

The best NFL bets for week 5

Invoices (+3) at Chiefs

The Bills have shaken off the rust after a slow start to the year on offense. Now, they will have the opportunity to continue their dominance against a weak defense.

The Chiefs stopped their two-game losing streak against the Eagles last week, but still surrendered 30 points in that game. They are allowing an average of 31.3 points per game on the season.

Meanwhile, the Bills have been excellent on offense in recent weeks and are scoring an average of 39.3 points per game during that span. That includes two shutout wins over the Dolphins (35-0) and the Texans (40-0).

Buffalo isn’t likely to keep that up against Patrick Mahomes, but at least they have the manpower to make stops on defense. They’re forcing an average of 2.5 punts for every offensive score they allow. That ranks first in the NFL. The Chiefs rank last in that category with 0.3 forced punts per offensive score.

If the Chiefs and their 22nd-down third-down defense can’t get the Bills off the field, Buffalo will have a good chance to stay close and possibly win. As such, having them as the field goal losers is a good value. They have the talent to keep up with the Chiefs even in the face of a hostile crowd at Arrowhead Stadium.

Patriots (-9) at Texans

The Texans played well in two games to start the 2021 NFL season. However, without Tyrod Taylor, they have been completely lost.

Houston hasn’t been able to cover the spread in any of the games Taylor hasn’t started after covering in each of the first two. Davis Mills has proven to be an ineffective substitute for Taylor and the Texans’ offense has failed badly as a result of his performance.

Texans per game averages with Davis Mills starting

Points 4.5
Total yards 151
Rotations 2.5

The Texans face a Patriots defense that has allowed the fourth fewest passing yards per game (185) and the sixth fewest points per game (17.5) this season. They just held Tom Brady to zero touchdown passes and the Buccaneers offense scored just 19 points.

Mac Jones has proven to be a solid starting quarterback thus far and the Patriots are better than their 1-3 record would indicate. They would have beaten the Dolphins in Week 1 if it weren’t for a late fumble from Damien Harris and nearly beat the Bucs last week in a game few gave them a chance to compete in. Therefore, they are far superior to this shaky Texans team.

The Patriots should be able to win and cover against Houston. They are 10-3 against Houston all-time, but have lost the last two games. It’s safe to say that Bill Belichick will want revenge for those losses and will want his team to bounce back after a tough loss to the Brady Bucs.

Broncos (+1.5) at Steelers

This game appears to be an intense defensive fight. The Broncos are coming off a 16-point loss to the Ravens during which they lost their starting quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater. He may not be able to play in Week 5, but Denver can still be a solid bet.

The Steelers have struggled immensely so far this year on offense. They haven’t been able to score much and are averaging just 16.8 points per game this year. That’s tied for fourth-worst in the NFL.

The Broncos have a strong defense. They’re allowing just 12.3 points per game, the second-fewest in the NFL, and they should be able to give Ben Roethlisberger some trouble this week.

Roethlisberger is dealing with an injured pectoral and now has an injured hip as well. He is 39, so those injuries could hamper his ability to pitch on the field. His offensive line has not played well this season either, so he will limit his time to make decisions and play in the pocket.

Pittsburgh’s offense should fight Denver. Even if Drew Lock starts out at quarterback and has problems of his own, the Broncos should be positioned to win this one, especially if they get back one or two of the offensive linemen who missed their last game (Graham Glasgow and Dalton Risner). Feel free to trust them and keep fading the Steelers.
