NFL Sunday Best Bets (Week 5)

Hot take, Wilson may not play for the Seahawks past this season. Let's take a look at Sundays slate.

NFL Record: 14-15 (+1.87 units)

Unfortunately for the Seattle Seahawks, it looks as if their season may be over after the week 5 loss to the Rams. With it being expected that Russell Wilson will be out 6-8 weeks and the NFC West being the best division as is, don’t expect to see the Seahawks in the playoffs this year. Hot take, Wilson may not play for the Seahawks past this season. Let’s take a look at Sundays slate.

1u – Arizona Cardinals NFC Champs (+700)

Take this or don’t. Just too much value to ignore at +700 being the only 4-0 team left and looking the part. They are tied for the fifth best odds just to win the NFC. Pretty disrespectful if you ask me.

1u – Eagles +3 (-110)

Wanted to get this to y’all before the line moved from 3.5, but the model still loves it. The eagles are coming off a hard fought loss against a Chiefs team that absolutely needed a win to shut up the haters. The Hurts to Smith connection is getting stronger and stronger each week and don’t expect it to slow down yet. Even if CMC comes back for this game expect the Eagles defensive front to make him question taking off another week.

1u – Davis Mills under 189.5 Passing Yards

The Texans have turned into the laughing stock of the NFL deploying out the team they do each week. Giving Mills this many yards is asking for the books the lose and the model agrees. I don’t have much to say about this one except for the for the fact that when it rains, it pours and it is pouring in Houston right now.

Projection: 161.5

1.5u – Jameis Winston over 7.5 Rushing Yards

Last game was the lone exception he didn’t hit this line and the model expects that to stay the case. Winston has rushed for 3+ attempts in 3/4 games and more often than not looks to make a few plays with his feet. The Football Teams front 7 should apply plenty of pressure on Winston making him move out of the pocket on more than one occasion.

Projection: 16.5

.5u – Myles Gaskin over 21.5 Rushing Yards

Gaskin has looked like an afterthought on occasion this season which has brought his rush total down to a whopping 21 yards. The model likes this enough that we are going to throw half a unit on it. We’ll probably wish we put more come Monday Morning.

Projection: 30
