Week 4 NFL action is underway, but FanDuel Sportsbook has already released NFL odds and lines for Week 5, giving us an early preview of next week's slate.

Week 5's 1 p.m. slate sets up an exciting matchup between the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints.

Total: N/A — Over: (N/A) | Under: (N/A)

The Saints return home as a clear favorite against the Seahawks in Week 5. New Orleans is an early -275 moneyline favorite and is favored by 6.5 points on the spread.

Seahawks vs Saints Prediction Week 5

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Seahawks: 21.8% to win
Saints: 77.9% to win

This Saints could pull away in the second half of this battle, according to the opening betting lines. ESPN's FPI also doesn't see the game being too close, but I'm siding with the Seahawks here. The Saints were without quarterback Jameis Winston, running back Alvin Kamara and wide receiver Michael Thomas in Week 4. The absence of any of those guys in Week 5 could cause some issues on offense. Quarterback Geno Smith is avoiding risks and making plays, so bet Seahawks +6.5 (-108).
