2021 NFL Week 5: Best Bet Winners

Josh Allen best bets W5

There weren’t a lot of major upsets in Week 5 of the 2021 NFL season. However, there were still some rather unexpected outcomes that had a huge impact on the betting scene, especially with wagers made against the spread. As such, let’s break down the key matchups that made or broke many bettors’ bet slips this past week.  

Read on as we break down the three best bet winners from Week 5 of the 2021 NFL regular season below. And to be on top of all the developments from the NFL offseason and beyond, head on over to Nitrogen Sports Blog after this.

Bills blast the Chiefs as (-3) road underdogs

Josh Allen’s third meeting against the Patrick Mahomes-led Chiefs would end up being a charming 38-20 road victory for the Buffalo play-caller. Allen simply outplayed Mahomes in Arrowhead on Sunday night, throwing for 315 passing yards and three touchdowns. Meanwhile, Mahomes arguably had his worst game of the season with a pair of picks and just 33 of 54 passes completed for 272 yards and two TDs.

The Bills look to win their fifth straight with a trip to the Music City as (-5.5) road favorites against the Titans. As for the Chiefs, they’ll look to get back to the .500 mark with a favorable matchup in the nation’s capital when they take on the Washington Football Team as (-6.5) favorites.

Lions cover as (+10) dogs against Minnesota

Another game, another loss for the bumbling Lions. Detroit is on a nine-game losing streak dating back to the previous season but has somewhat been a tricky team to gauge against the spread.

The Lions have managed to cover the spread in three of the five games this season and are a respectable 5-4 ATS during the aforementioned losing streak. They’re given a relatively slim spread to cover (+3) home dogs in Week 6 versus the Bengals. On the other hand, Cincy has won two of its last three games and nearly pulled an upset in overtime against the mighty Packers this past Sunday.

Cardinals edge past Niners as (-5.5) favorites

The undefeated Cardinals continue to impress in the first quarter of the 2021 season. And while their offense cooled off a bit, they still secured a 17-10 victory over division rivals the 49ers to keep their blemish-free record intact.

Not only are the Cards the biggest surprise of the season, but they’ve also covered the spread in four of their five wins. Another tough test approaches for Kyler Murray and crew as they pay a visit to the Dawg Pound in Week 6 to take on a Browns team that is hot off a shootout defeat versus the Chargers. Cleveland is currently pegged as a (-2.5) home favorite to beat Arizona next Sunday, and the team is 8-2 at home since the start of the previous season. However, the Browns have a mere 4-6 ATS record during that stretch.
