LOS ANGELES – Week 5 of the NFL season starts Thursday and teams are looking to win their games and advance their records on the year. Sportsbooks are providing great odds on each of the matchups this week but some bets may be better than others.
Dallas Cowboys (-7.5) Vs. New York Giants
The New York Giants are 0-4 ATS in their last four games following an ATS win and have only covered the spread twice this season.
The Dallas Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games and 4-0 ATS this season. Based on this recent trend, the Cowboys (-7.5) should be able to cover the spread.
UNDER 46.5 – Cleveland Browns Vs. Los Angeles Chargers
The Los Angeles Chargers have covered the UNDER in five of their last seven games against the AFC and have covered the UNDER in all 4 games this season led by a defense that is allowing an average of 18.5 points per game.
The Cleveland Browns have covered the UNDER in back-to-back games, including last week’s game against the Minnesota Vikings where both teams combined for 21 points. The numbers indicate that the UNDER (46.5) could cover for this game.
OVER 48 – Miami Dolphins Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The OVER has covered in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers‘ last six home games against a team with a losing road record and the team covered in three of their last four matchups this season.
The OVER has covered in the Miami Dolphins last four games against a team with a winning record and they have covered in back-to-back games this season. If everything goes according to the numbers by sportsbooks, the OVER (48) looks to be the way to go on this wager.
Denver Broncos (+1) Vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Denver Broncos are 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 3-1 ATS this season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are 1-5 ATS in their last six home games and have failed to cover the spread in each of their last three games. If recent trends continue, the Broncos (+1) should cover the spread in this matchup.
New York Jets (+3) Vs. Atlanta Falcons
The Atlanta Falcons are 1-4 ATS in their last five games and 1-3 ATS this season. Meanwhile, the New York Jets covered the spread last week in a 27-24 upset win over the Tennessee Titans. The numbers suggest that the Jets (+3) can cover the spread in this game.
Green Bay Packers (-3.5) Vs. Cincinnati Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals are 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a straight-up win where they failed to cover the spread last week as 7-point favorites against the Jacksonville Jaguars in a 24-21 win.
The Green Bay Packers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games and have covered the spread in each of the last three games. The Packers (-3.5) could be the way to go in Week 5 on this bet.
