NFL Week 5 odds: Best bets on favorites

The NFL Week 5 slate throws up some intriguing matchups. We take a look at five of the best underdogs bets in NFL Week 5.

5. San Francisco 49ers (-3.5)

The 49ers are coming off a whopping 15 days rest before hosting the Cleveland Browns on Monday night. Meanwhile, the Browns are coming off an emotional win over a division rival in the Baltimore Ravens. Now, Cleveland is coming across the country to take on an undefeated team. It’s a tough ask for anybody, let alone a Browns team that doesn’t have a ton of experience.

4. Baltimore Ravens (-3.5)

Speaking of the Ravens, they now head to Pittsburgh for a Sunday afternoon date with the Steelers. Baltimore was pummeled at home by the Browns to drop its record to 2-2, making this somewhat of a must win. While the season is early, a loss would put the Ravens in third place of the AFC North, only ahead of the Cincinnati Bengals. Ultimately, Baltimore should win considering its roster is stronger on both sides of the ball. If Lamar Jackson took the leap we all believed he did after two weeks, the Ravens win this game by a few scores.

3. New England Patriots (-15)

This is a huge line. Who cares? The Patriots have a fantastic defense and the Washington Redskins are forcing rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins to make his first start against it. Lunacy. New England should be able to cover this spread without trying, even with the offense attempting to find itself somewhat. Tom Brady also had one of the worst games of his career last weekend against the Buffalo Bills. He’ll be out to prove a point in the nation’s capital.

2. Minnesota Vikings (-5.5)

It’s time for the Vikings to get going. Nobody should ever bet on a gut feel alone, though, so here are a few more reasons why Minnesota will cover against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. For starters, the Vikings are far more talented on both sides of the ball. They also have a pair of top-end receivers in Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. New York struggles to cover anybody. The Vikings defense is also terrific, and easily the biggest test rookie quarterback Daniel Jones has faced to this point. Tough spot for Jones and the Giants.

1. Chicago Bears (-5.5)

This is simple. Chicago has the best defense in football. The Oakland Raiders, despite being listed as the home team this week, have to travel from the west coast all the way to London. Not a short trip. Also, Khalil Mack. He’s a bit motivated. The Bears are playing with their backup quarterback, but that’s actually an upgrade with this team. If the Raiders don’t hold Chicago under 14 points, the Bears will cover.
