A very interesting week for NFL betting fans is ahead, as the football odds for Week 5 are out. Ironically, the biggest underdog on the board this week is the league’s last undefeated team, the Kansas City Chiefs. They’re coming off of their bye week and are clearly getting thoroughly disrespected in this duel with the Indianapolis Colts, as they are eight point pups. Indianapolis has plenty of reasons to be upset after losing to a 59 yard field goal at the end of last week’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and we all saw what this team did when it was angry the last time it was playing a game off of a defeat… QB Eli Manning doesn’t want to see his big brother, QB Peyton Manning again.

Once again, road favorites seem to be the norm for the week, as there are a slew of so called “better teams” that have to go on the road to try to snare wins against “lesser teams.”

The Cleveland Browns are one of the disrespected home underdogs on the NFL odds for Week Five, as they are three point pups to the Atlanta Falcons. Does this situation look familiar? Last week, the Brownies were three point dogs to open up against the Cincinnati Bengals as well, as they came away with the outright victory.

The biggest road favorites are the New Orleans Saints. The oddsmakers are taking a big chance on New Orleans, as this crew really doesn’t have much in the way of a running game right now with RB Pierre Thomas out of the lineup. The Saints struggled mightily with the Carolina defense last week. Arizona’s biggest problems have come on the road, where it has gotten crushed by both the Atlanta Falcons and the San Diego Chargers. This is at home though, and it seems like there are favorable NFL trends point towards the hosts as seven point underdogs on Sunday afternoon.

Last week, the NFL oddsmakers were burned by making the Tennessee Titans nearly full touchdown favorites at home against the Denver Broncos. HC Josh McDaniels’ crew came away with the outright upset by the count of 26-20, and now Tennessee has to head to “Big D” to fight with the Dallas Cowboys, who are still trying to salvage their season after an 0-2 start. Owner Jerry Jones’ men are favored by 6.5 points on the opening NFL lines.

The highest ‘total’ on the board this week is in the clash between the New York Giants and Houston Texans at 48. Neither team has had much success on defense in recent weeks, and the Texans offense is putting points on the board left and right against everyone that it faces.

The lowest ‘total’ of all the week 5 NFL lines used to be the Monday Night Football tussle between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Jets, but after the news that the Chicago Bears were going to be without QB Jay Cutler, the ‘total’ between the Bears and the Carolina Panthers is only 33.
