There were a few intriguing storylines last week in Week 4 of the NFL schedule. But still, NFL betting odds this week are holding usual lines.

For example, the Buffalo Bills put up big numbers shutting out the Texans. Yet, betting odds NFL Week 5 have them as underdogs to the 2-2 Kansas City Chiefs.

And don’t look now, but both the New York Jets and the New York Giants got their first wins of the season.

The Jets look to have a better chance of continuing the streak against the Falcons. The Giants get rewarded with a trip to Dallas.

So, which games present the best NFL betting odds in Week 5? Keep reading for a few predictions.

Tennessee at Jacksonville (+4.5)

Last week, the Titans accumulated 400 yards and held possession for 40 minutes. Yet, somehow, they still lost the game. Tennessee couldn’t finish in the red zone.

Ryan Tannehill was under attack the whole game, getting sacked seven times. That’s because receivers couldn’t get open, leaving Tannehill holding the ball for too long. The banged-up Titans are also missing A.J. Brown and Julio Jones.

Jacksonville lost their fourth straight in a tight contest against an improved Bengals squad. They may go 0-5, but I believe that the Jaguars will cover the 4 points.

Green Bay at Cincinnati (+3.5)

The jury is still out on whether the Bengals are for real. This game is their first test against a top contender.

Green Bay looks like they’ve got their swagger back, and Aaron Rogers and his coaching staff seem to be pulling in the same direction again.

The Packers are just getting started, and I believe they will win by at least two scores.

NY Giants at Dallas (-7)

Who passed for the most yards in the NFL last week? Daniel Jones had his coming-out party in Week 4 with a monster performance in New Orleans.

Two touchdowns and 402 yards passing have, at last, given New York football fans a reason to feel excited. But is that enough to take on the surging Cowboys?

Unfortunately, I don’t think Daniel Jones can repeat that type of performance in Arlington. I believe that Dallas will cover with ease.

Buffalo at Kansas City (-2.5)

This game could be the best of the week. The Kansas City Chiefs are now moving in the right direction after a big win in Philadelphia. Now, Mahomes and company are right back in the race for the AFC West.

The Buffalo Bills seem to be scoring at will after their season-opening loss to Pittsburgh. They have put up 118 points in their last three games.

Yes, the Texans are the worst team in the league right now, but Buffalo shut them out, with the defense creating five turnovers. They also lead the league in 11 defensive categories.

Kansas City gets the home side favorite here, but the Josh Allen juggernaut is hard to ignore. Until they prove me wrong, I think the Bills will keep on rolling.

There Are More Great NFL Betting Odds

Opportunities are plentiful in Week 5 NFL betting odds. Injuries may play a key role in how games work out.

Denver could be without Teddy Bridgewater when they visit Pittsburgh, and the Steelers are in strange territory at 1-3 so far.

Also, can Arizona stay undefeated after an early run through the division? Kyler Murray continues to find new ways to win games.
