WE’RE into week 5 of the 2018 NFL season and we’ve got another huge fixture of blockbuster encounters and fascinating NFL betting matches to sift through.
Before we take a look at our tips for result and spread on every game, let’s take a look at our comprehensive single match analysis and parlay tips for two of our key matches:
- Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Kansas City Chiefs betting tips
- Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns spread odds & tips
Indianapolis Colts vs. New England Patriots (-10) O/U 51.5
The Patriots snapped their two-game skid with a convincing win over the Miami Dolphins in their last game. The Colts have lost two straight and they lost a 37-34 overtime game to the Houston Texans in their last game. Going with the Pats in this one, as they are 2-0 at home and at 2-2 Brady and company knows a win is important in this AFC prime-time Thursday night affair.
Miami Dolphins vs. Cincinnati Bengals (-6.5) O/U 49.5
The Dolphins lost their first game of the season to the Patriots in their last game and face a 3-1 Bengals team that is coming off a blowout win. Cincy has not played the best defense this season, but they rank 4th in the league in points per game. At home Cincy will win and cover sending the Fish to their second straight loss.
Baltimore Ravens (-3) vs. Cleveland Browns O/U 47
The Ravens are a quite 3-1 and they have balance ranking fifth in the league in points per game and tied for third in points allowed. The Browns scored 42 points in their last game and lost by three points in overtime with Baker Mayfield committing four turnovers. The Rookie will atone for his mistakes in that game with a good game in this one and Cleveland will, at least, cover the spread.
New York Giants vs. Carolina Panthers (-7) O/U 44.5
The Giants have some major issues, as Eli Manning has struggled to put the ball in the end zone, the run game has not been consistent, and the offensive line has been pretty bad. The Panthers are coming off a bye and have a great run game, which is bad for New York since they rank 29th in the league in run defense. Take the Panthers to win and cover in this NFC matchup.
Tennessee Titans (-3.5) vs. Buffalo Bills O/U 39
The Titans are coming off a great overtime win over the Eagles in their last game while the Bills were shut out a week after shocking the Minnesota Vikings. Josh Allen showed rookie mistakes in the shutout loss to the Packers last week and he will show them again in this game facing a Tennessee defense that ranks sixth in the league in points allowed per game. The Titans will win this game at home and cover as well.
Green Bay Packers (-1) vs. Detroit Lions O/U 51
The Packers are coming off a shutout win while the Lions are coming off a tough one-point loss to the Cowboys. In this big rivalry game it will be close, but even in the Motor City you have to go with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers to win and cover.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) O/U 57.5
These are two of the most disappointing teams in the league so far with each sitting at -13. Both teams have gotten good quarterback player, but both defense have struggled and neither team has much of a running game. At home Pittsburgh will win and cover.
Denver Broncos vs. New York Jets (-1) O/U 42.5
The Broncos are coming off a Monday night loss to the Chiefs where they held a 10-point fourth quarter lead. After a solid NFL debut rookie quarterback Sam Darnold has fallen flat in the last three games where New York has only averaged 13.7 points per game. Look for the Broncos to have a great game on defense, as they will win and cover even on the road.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Kansas City Chiefs (-3) O/U 49
Big game in this AFC matchup with the Jags and their top-ranked defense facing the Chiefs, who are 4-0 and the highest scoring team in the league. Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes has gotten off to a scorching start and has 14 touchdowns and no interceptions. While the Chiefs rank dead last in the league in defense Mahomes, will carry them to another win and they will also cover the spread.

Oakland Raiders vs. L.A. Chargers (-5-5) O/U 53.5
The Raiders got their first win of the season in their last game beating the Browns 45-42 in overtime. The Chargers are at 2-2 coming off a win and Phillip Rivers will be facing an Oakland pass defense that ranks 17th in the league, but gave up some big plays in the win over the Browns. This game will be a close one, which is why the Raiders will cover.
Arizona Cardinals vs. San Francisco 49ers (-4.5) O/U 41
The Cardinals are the last winless team in the league and they rank dead last in the league in overall offense. At least they will be facing a San Francisco team that has struggled on defense and will start their backup quarterback. Rookie Josh Rosen will have his come-out game this Sunday and light up the San Fran defense, as the Cardinals will not only cover, but get the win.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Philadelphia Eagles (-3) O/U 44.5
Both of these teams were expected to vie for a trip to the Super Bowl, but the Vikings are 1-2-1 and the defending champion Eagles are 2-2. You have to go with the Eagles in this one, as the once great Minnesota defense has looked bad this season, especially their pass defense. Philly will win in their house and cover the spread.
LA Rams (-7) vs. Seattle Seahawks O/U 50.5
The Rams are one of only two unbeaten teams and they have the second highest scoring offense. The Seahawks have won two in a row after losing their first two games, but the wins came against the 2-2 Cowboys and the 0-4 Cardinals, who they only beat by three points in their last game. The Rams’ express will keep on rolling winning and covering in the Great Northwest.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Houston Texans (-3) O/U 45.5
The battle for the Lone Star State is this Sunday night with the 1-3 Texans hosting the 2-2 Cowboys. All of the Texans games have been close and they are coming off their first win of the season. The big matchup in this game is Ezekiel Elliot facing Houston and their 10th ranked run defense. Look for Zeke to have a big game and the Cowboys to, at least, cover the spread.
Washington Redskins vs. New Orleans Saints (-6.5) O/U 52.5
The 2-1 Redskins are coming off a bye and they head to the Big Easy on Monday night to face the 3-1 Saints. Same old song and dance for Drew Brees and the Saints, as they are a very high scoring team that has struggled on defense. The Redskins will take advantage of that with Alex Smith under center and Washington will cover.
