Taking a look at the Las Vegas Sports Book, betting lines and over/under, and decide what wagers you should make for every Week Five game in the NFL.
Each week, FanSided looks at the Vegas Odds for each NFL contest and gets you prepared to wager on each and every game.
Early in the season this is a difficult proposition, as teams are starting to get their feet under them and we’re really starting to figure out who they are in terms of identity.
Typically, by Week 5 we have a pretty good understand of where every team stands and can confidently say what the outcome of most games will be.
But this year, it is a completely different story.
Nearly half of the league is .500 and from week-to-week, we have games like Bucs shredding the Rams 55-40 just one week after falling to the Giants by a point. Or the Ravens running over the league for the first two weeks of the season, and then giving up 40 points and getting blown out to a Browns team that was average 17 points per game before that.
Nonetheless – we’ll go through each game and discuss the which way you should wager if you’re putting money down on the Week 5 contests both on the betting line, and the over/under, based on the numbers at the Westgate Superbook. We’ve broken them up in to three categories: the best games to bet on this week, the games we’re somewhat on the fence about, and the games we think you should only bet if you feel the need to do so (or you have some inside information that the rest of us don’t!).
