2017 NFL Week 5: Preview and Predictions (Beating the Spread)

NFL Week 5 Previews and Predictions


San Francisco 49ers at Indianapolis Colts(-1.5)

This is a matchup between two bad football teams. When it comes down, to it I will take the home team in this one.

Prediction: Colts 12  49ers 9

Los Angeles Chargers at New York Giants(-3.5)

This is a match up between two winless teams that came into the season with playoff aspirations. The Giants offensive line is just flat out bad and the Chargers defensive line will get constant pressure on QB Eli Manning, leading to a Chargers win.

Prediction: Chargers 23  Giants 20

Buffalo Bills at Cincinnati Bengals(-3)

The Bills are looking at a trap game here. They are coming off a huge win in Atlanta and I think this will be a tough one for them. The Bengals have played much better after letting Offensive Coordinator Ken Zampese go. Since that time QB Andy Dalton has done a complete turn around and is playing well. I expect the Bengals to win a close one here.

Prediction: Bengals 24  Bills 20

New York Jets at Cleveland Browns(Even)

Neither team is very good, but the Jets play very hard and that will get them the win here.

Prediction: Jets 17  Browns 14

Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers(-8.5)

The Steelers have not played up to there capabilities this year, while the Jaguars are up and down from one week to the next.

Prediction: Steelers 27  Jaguars 17

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins(No Line)

Hard to pick the Dolphins against anybody right now. They seem to be a team in turmoil. The Titans may be missing Marcus Mariota again. The running game, however, should be enough to lead the Titans to a victory.

Prediction: Titans 17  Dolphins 10

Arizona Cardinals at Philadelphia Eagles(-6.5)

The Cardinals aren’t very good and the Eagles look to be a contender. I look for the Eagles to handle business at home.

Prediction: Eagles 31  Cardinals 14

Carolina Panthers at Detroit Lions(-2.5)

The Detroit Lions are better than people realize and the Panthers are still going to struggle on offense in this game. Do not read too much into Cam Newton’s performance last week against a bad Patriots defense.

Prediction: Lions 24  Panthers 16

Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams(-1)

The Rams, lead by Aaron Donald, will harass Seahawks QB Russell Wilson all day and will take away the Seahawks ability to run the ball. The Rams will prove they are for real here.

Prediction: Rams 24  Seahawks 17

Baltimore Ravens at Oakland Raiders(-2)

The Ravens are bad and the Raiders are in disarray. Take the home team in this one.

Prediction: Raiders 16  Ravens 13

Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys(-2)

Playoff rematch and the Cowboys are having a tough season so far. On the other side, the Packers are once again decimated by injuries. I like the Cowboys in a close one.

Prediction: Cowboys 34  Packers 31 

Kansas City Chiefs(-1) at Houston Texans

This is a great matchup and I think it will come down to the Texans ability to slow down Kareem Hunt and force Alex Smith to beat them.

Prediction: Texans 28  Chiefs 24

Minnesota Vikings at Chicago Bears(No Line)

The Vikings defense wins them this game as the defense will own Bears rookie QB Mitchell Trubisky by the end of the game.

Prediction: Vikings 27  Bears 3
