NFL Spreads for Week 5

The "Thursday Night Football" matchup features a heated NFC West Division rivalry that has given us some great contests in the past. The Los Angeles Rams head to Seattle to take on the Seahawks and the 12th Man. The game is projecting to be a tight one, with the Seahawks sitting as 1-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and the over/under for this one is sitting at 49 points.

This week's "Sunday Night Football" features a rematch from last season's AFC Playoffs with the Indianapolis Colts heading to Arrowhead Stadium to play the Kansas City Chiefs. The spread on this game would have likely been closer had Colts' franchise quarterback Andrew Luck not retired unexpectedly before the start of the season, but with Jacoby Brissett now under center full time, the Chiefs are 9.5-point favorites. This game also features the highest total of the week, by a wide margin, with an over/under of 57 points.

Week 5 closes it out on "Monday Night Football" with a matchup between the Cleveland Browns and San Francisco 49ers. The Niners are 3.5-point home favorites and the game has an over/under of 47.5 points.

Outside of those games, we have a couple of good division games. The Baltimore Ravens visit the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore is a 4-point favorite and the game's total sits at 42.5 points. Next, the Denver Broncos head to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers in an AFC West matchup. The Chargers are 6-point home favorites and the total is 43.5 points.

America's game of the week is between the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys, in what could turn out to be an NFC Playoff matchup. Dallas is a 4-point home favorite and the over/under is 47 points.
