HOUSTONWeek 5 of the NFL season is set to have both the highest and lowest totals of the entire season, as well as another double-digit favorite.

New England Patriots Vs. Houston Texans: Lowest Total Of Season

The New England Patriots and Houston Texans are set to play each other on Sunday in what is lining up to be the lowest-scoring game of the season, at least according to the NFL betting sites.

Texans Vs. Patriots Total Odds

  • OVER 40.0 -110
  • UNDER 40.0 -110

There has not been a game that has had this low of a total this season but there are trends that point in the UNDER’s direction. In the 15 games this season with a point total lower than 45.0, the UNDER is 12-3. Considering both teams are among the six worst in scoring in the NFL, this low total seems more than fair

The game will begin at 1 p.m. EST on Sunday and can be seen on CBS.

Kansas City Chiefs Vs. Buffalo Bills: Highest Total Of The Season

Along with having the lowest total of the year, online sportsbooks have a game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills as the projected highest-scoring game of the season.

Chiefs Vs. Bills Total Odds

  • OVER 56.5 -110
  • UNDER 56.5 -110

No game this season has closed with a total greater than 55.0 points, which puts this game in uncharted territory. Last season, games with a total of 55.0 or more points combined for a 16-8 record in favor of the Under. Since the Bills have the best scoring defense in the NFL and allow just 11.0 points per game, this trend may continue.

The kick-off is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. EST on Sunday night and will air on NBC.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs. Miami Dolphins: Only Week 5 Double-Digit Spread

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the only double-digit favorites of the week in their game against the Miami Dolphins. This season, teams favored by 10.0 or more points are 4-1 against the spread.

Buccaneers Vs. Dolphins Spread Odds

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers -10.0 -110
  • Miami Dolphins +10.0 -110

With that said, Tampa Bay is just 1-3 ATS this season. One of these trends will have to give. For what it’s worth, Miami’s average point differential is -11.8 points per game.

CBS will air this game starting at 1 p.m. EST on Sunday.
