2016 NFL Betting

Fresh off a 3-0 fill-up for our NFL betting tips last week, we look to add to our 9-3 start to the season with a cracking week of NFL action again on the cards.

Our best bets for 2016 NFL Week 5 are once again listed below!

Bengals @ Cowboys – Monday October 10th at 6:25am AEST

This should be a cracking contest! The Bengals are almost in a must win situation already and the Cowboys have started very well and now sit 3-1 despite dropping Week 1 to the New York Giants. The Cowboys form has been pretty hollow however and they face a genuine top level defense this week that should test the rookie duo of Prescott and Elliot out a fair bit.

Cincinnati is also coming in off a dominant Thursday Night Football win and get the coveted 10 days of preparation coming in which has proven to be a nice formula in the past to help road teams. The Bengals sit nine spots higher than the Cowboys on our power rankings and the home stadium advantage is only worth a couple of points to Dallas. This spread looks 1.5-2 points too low, happy to back the Bengals.

Suggested Tip: Bengals -1 ($1.98) at CrownBet
Confidence level: 75%

Giants @ Packers – Monday October 10th at 10:30am AEST

Two teams that have had some great tussles over the years and two teams that should be able to score points on each other. The Packers have been less than impressive in their two wins so far against bad teams (Detroit and Jacksonville) while both the Packers and Giants have already lost to the impressive Minnesota Vikings.

The Giants will be much more comfortable against the Packers middle of the road defense and on rankings are only five spots below the Packers. We’ll concede Lambeau Field is a nice advantage for the green army but this spread still feels way too high. We love that it’s fallen over a key number (seven points) and advise taking the points!

Suggested Tip: Giants +7.5 ($1.92) at CrownBet
Confidence level: 75%

Bears @ Colts – Monday October 10th at 3am AEST

Two pretty average teams in the Indianapolis dome. Chicago are fresh off a comfortable division win against the disappointing Lions while the Colts are fresh off a bad loss against Jacksonville in London. That’s not ideal preparation and at 1-3 their season is basically on the line. Their defense is too bad for them to win any great number of games in a row and they’ll find it difficult to go 1-4 and turn things around.

This is a classic game where the oddsmakers are predicting the wave of money to come for Andrew Luck (the best player on the field) and the Colts because the Bears are one of the most boring teams in the competition. They played feisty last week though and they’ll be confident they can put a nail in the Colts season. This game should be maximum three points and the extra juice is well worth a bet.

Suggested Tip: Bears +4.5 ($1.92) at CrownBet
Confidence level: 75%
