NFL Week 5 odds: Making a case for each favorite

Looking at the NFL Week 5 odds, we think about how each favorite can cover their respective spreads come the weekend.

Los Angeles Rams (-2.5) at Seattle Seahawks

After losing to the Cardinals, Los Angeles will be focused to avoid a second straight divisional loss. The Seahawks will have a tough time slowing down Matthew Stafford.

New York Jets at Atlanta Falcons (-3)

The Falcons are giving up home field to play in London, but the Jets are extremely limited offensively. Atlanta should be able to score enough here.

Denver Broncos at Pittsburgh Steelers (-1)

The Steelers are 1-3 and desperate to get a win. Denver may need to start Drew Lock under center. Bad recipe for the Broncos.

Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings (-7.5)

If the Vikings fall to 1-4, it’s over. Minnesota can’t lose to the only winless team in the NFC.

Green Bay Packers (-3) at Cincinnati Bengals

Why are the Packers only laying three points here? Green Bay is superior on both sides of the ball.

Miami Dolphins at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-10)

The Dolphins have no quarterback. Enough said against Tom Brady.

New England Patriots (-9) at Houston Texans

Have you seen the Texans?

New Orleans Saints (-2) at Washington Football Team

After losing to the Giants, New Orleans will have ample motivation to beat a lesser team this weekend.

Philadephia Eagles at Carolina Panthers (-3.5)

The Panthers are a bit banged up, but are better than Philadephia on both sides of the ball.

Tennessee Titans (-4) at Jacksonville Jaguars

If the Titans lose to the Jets and Jaguars in consecutive weeks, they should be contracted.

Chicago Bears at Las Vegas Raiders (-5.5)

The Bears have Allen Robinson and virtually no other offensive weapons. If the Raiders can limit him, the offense has a light lift to get a win.

Cleveland Browns at Los Angeles Chargers (-1.5)

Los Angeles has a case as a Super Bowl contender. The Chargers are 3-1 and rolling, while the Browns are a good team with a struggling quarterback in Baker Mayfield.

San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals (-5.5)

The Cardinals are the league’s only remaining unbeaten team and the 49ers don’t now whether Trey Lance or Jimmy Garoppolo is making the start.

New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (-7)

Dallas has one of the league’s best offenses and a defense that is suddenly becoming one of the league’s most-improved units.

Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5)

The Chiefs have the best offense in football, home field in primetime and a defense that literally has to get better. Plus, at 2-2, Kansas City is desperate.

Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens (-7)

The Ravens typically crush teams they’re better than, and the Colts certainly fall into that category.
