Week 5 NFL: Best bets on every game

By VSiN Staff  ( 


The fifth weekend of the unique 2020 NFL season is here. 

With games currently scheduled for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, there are plenty of betting opportunities. Our experts Drew Dinsick, Dave Tuley and Matt Youmans combine to give their opinions on every game.

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons (-2, 54)

Tuley: The Panthers are coming off back-to-back upsets of the Chargers and Cardinals, so they’re tempting underdogs against the 0-4 Falcons. However Atlanta is another team taking a step down in class after a rough opening schedule. The best bet here is to tease the Panthers up over a touchdown and mix and match with other teasers that give us the key numbers of 3 and 7: Rams down to -1, Cardinals down to -1, Steelers down to -1, 49ers down to -2, Browns up to + 7.5, Seahawks down to -1 and Saints down to -7.5 (I say mix & match as you’ll see I like some of the opposite sides of those teasers, so not playing them all but just pointing out the “advantageous” teasers on this week’s card).

Pick: Tease Panthers up over a touchdown

Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs (-13, 56.5)

Dinsick: Divisional games return in Week 5, giving us an opportunity to use a broader sample of historical matchup data between teams and coaches that have familiarity with game-planning and facing each other in past seasons.  Sunday will mark the 10th head-to-head between Jon Gruden and Andy Reid, as Gruden’s 2-2 Raiders head to Kansas City to face the undefeated Chiefs. In their past nine contests, Reid holds the straight-up edge with a 5-4 win-loss record, while Gruden has managed five covers out of the nine games; totals have gone 3-6 to the under, including the last three, by an average of nearly five points.
