NFL Week 5: Lions vs. Patriots & Seahawks vs Saints

NFL Regular Season Week 5 Betting Outlook

Week 4 of the regular NFL season has been one for the books. We started Thursday off with two undefeated teams left, and now only the Philadelphia Eagles hold that title.  In addition, the Miami Dolphins received their first lost to the Cincinnati Bengals on Thursday Night Football.

Through out the week, we have seen everything from players being taken off the field to teams emerging as still undefeated in going into week 5. In the end, there is no telling what we destined to see going into this next week. This is what makes sports betting so interesting- that you never know what the next game is going to bring.

As we head in to the fifth week of the NFL, we are predicting to see some great games. Today, we will take a look at each of the games coming up in week 5 and share our picks.

Detroit Lions vs. New England Patriots – October 9, 2022 12:00pm CST 

Averaging 35 points per game, the Detroit Lions have established themselves as a premiere offense. Heading into this game, however, they’ll need their defense to take a step forward. 

The New England Patriots nearly handed a loss to the Green Bay Packers. Still, their offense was unable to put the game away, which is why we’ll take Detroit over New England. 

Seattle Seahawks vs. New Orleans Saints  – October 9, 2022 12:00pm CST week 5 seattle seahawks vs new orleans saints nfl football betting

By putting up 48 points against the Detroit Lions last week, the Seattle Seahawks answered a few questions. The main question answered was that Geno Smith is the right pick at the quarterback spot. This week, he’ll be tested again when they face the New Orleans Saints. 

The Saints are one of the best defenses against the pass this season. Although they lost last week to the Vikings, expect them to bounce back at home here.
