The NFL is in the process of wrapping up Week 4, with a fun matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints on Sunday Night Football and then a less than stellar Monday Night Football matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers. We can find something to enjoy about both games, but SNF looks better than MNF at this point.
While we’re waiting for that to wrap, we’re starting to see opening point spreads for Week 5 matchups at DraftKings Sportsbook. We have four remaining undefeated teams (pending Dallas Cowboys outcome). The 4-0 Patriots are traveling to 0-4 Washington, and there is no line yet due to questions about whether or not Dwayne Haskins will get the start. Case Keenum started in Week 4 but was benched after an atrocious start. The 4-0 Chiefs are hosting the 2-2 Indianapolis Colts, and are closing in on double digit favorites. Finally, the 3-0 49ers host the 2-2 Browns on Monday Night Football. The Cowboys host the Packers, so we’ll see how that line shakes out after SNF.
The closest line right now is Thursday Night Football, where the Rams are a 1.5-point road favorite against their division rivals in Seattle. Considering how the Rams defense looked against the inconsistent Bucs, Russell Wilson has to be excited. There could be some value on this line.
I’m also intrigued by how the lines move for Ravens-Steelers. Baltimore is a 3.5-point road favorite, but coming off a bad outing against Cleveland. Pittsburgh has plenty of issues, and I’m curious to see how the line adjusts based on their coming MNF performance.
We’ll have plenty more on the point spreads, but for now, here is the list. We’ll add new ones as they arrive.
Los Angeles Rams (-1.5) at Seattle Seahawks
Minnesota Vikings (-5) at New York Giants
Baltimore Ravens (-3.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers
Atlanta Falcons at Houston Texans (-4.5)
Chicago Bears (-5) at Oakland Raiders
New England Patriots (no line) at Washington
Arizona Cardinals at Cincinnati Bengals (-4.5)
Jacksonville Jaguars at Carolina Panthers (-3)
Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5)
Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs (-9.5)
Cleveland Browns at San Francisco 49ers (-3)
