2016 Week 5 ATS Betting Picks

Posted by Eric Williams on August 1, 2016 in

If you’re fired up about the quickly approaching 2016 NFL betting season and you’re in need of some early online against the spread betting picks, then you’re in for a real treat as I offer up an expert prediction for every matchup on the Week 5 schedule. Okay, let’s get started.

Taking a Closer Look at the 2016 Week 5 ATS Betting Picks

Thursday, October 6, 2016

Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers (+6)

I like Carson Palmer and the Cardinals for the road win, but I like Chip Kelly’s explosive offensive system to help the Niners narrowly cover the NFL betting line.

Sunday, October 9, 2016

New England Patriots at Cleveland Browns (+7)

The Browns are going down, like really, really hard in Tom Brady’s 2016 debut!

Philadelphia Eagles at Detroit Lions (-1)

Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions win and easily cover the spread at home against the rebuilding Birds.

Chicago Bears at Indianapolis Colts (-3.5)

Andrew Luck and the Colts are the pick to get the home win and narrowly cover the spread against Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears.

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins (-5.5)

While I expect Miami to get the home win in this Week 5 matchup, I like Tennessee to get the ATS cover since the Titans have the better quarterback in this AFC clash.

Washington Redskins at Baltimore Ravens (-2.5)

I’m going with Joe Flacco and the Ravens to get the home win and ATS cover over a Redskins team that I don’t think is going to be much better than a .500 team in 2016.

Houston Texans at Minnesota Vikings (-6)

I like Minnesota to get the win in this Week 5 matchup, but I’m going with the Houston Texans to cover the spread in a defensive battle.

New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers (-6)

The Steelers will finally have running back Le’Veon Bell back on the field, but with Ryan Fitzpatrick back and a great defense, I like the Jets to narrowly cover the spread.

Atlanta Falcons at Denver Broncos (-6.5)

I smell an upset brewing in this Week 5 Inter-conference matchup. The Falcons went 5-2 ATS as a dog last season and will have the edge at quarterback in this matchup.

Cincinnati Bengals at Dallas Cowboys (PK)

The Cowboys may be playing at home, but the Bengals have the edge at head coach, quarterback and defense. Cincy wins outright!

Buffalo Bills at Los Angeles Rams (-1)

This a matchup that Buffalo should win on the road, but one they won’t mostly because Rex Ryan team underachieve at the most inexplicable time.

San Diego Chargers at Oakland Raiders (-4.5)

Derek Carr and the Raiders are the pick to get the win at home against their AFC West division rivals, but I don’t like the 4.5-point spread and believe Philip Rivers and the Bolts will cover for the third straight meeting.

New York Giants at Green Bay Packers (-8)

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will win this Week 5 NFC matchup, but Green Bay isn’t a defensive juggernaut, leading me to believe Eli Manning and the G-Men will find a way to cover the high spread.

Monday, October 10, 2016

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers (-10)

The Panthers pounded the Bucs by at least 14 points in both regular season meetings a year ago and will do so again in 2016.
