Week 5 features a lot of intriguing match ups in the NFL. There is only one divisional game – the San Diego Chargers at the Oakland Raiders. This means that most teams will be facing an opponent that they are unfamiliar with. Week 5 could be more high scoring than most, as defenses will probably be slow to adjust. Week 5 could also produce several tough choices for bettors. However, there are a few games that stand out as sure bets this week.
Top 3 Week 5 NFL Bets Online
Kansas City Chiefs (+8) at Indianapolis Colts: The Chiefs are 3-0 and look like one of the best teams in the NFL. The Colts are coming off of a heartbreaking loss to the previously struggling Jacksonville Jaguars. While the Chiefs might not win the game, Matt Cassel and company should keep things closer than 8 points.
New Orleans Saints (-6.5) at Arizona Cardinals: Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have to be licking their chops in anticipation of their week 5 game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Cardinals are 2-1 but have only beaten the lowly St. Louis Rams and Oakland Raiders. They give up a lot of yardage through the air, which will be a problem when they face the high powered passing attack of the Saints. Derek Anderson and Larry Fitzgerald will have a hard time putting up enough points to keep this game closer than a 6.5 spread.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Buffalo Bills (-1): You have to believe that the Jaguars will be riding high after their last second win against the Indianapolis Colts in week 4. There is a good chance that the momentum they gained in that game will carry over to their week 5 matchup with the Bills. It can’t hurt that Buffalo has looked pathetic so far this season. They just aren’t a team that is in sync. The Bills will continue their nightmare season against the Jaguars.
