Now 7-3 ATS selecting underdogs this season and 58-30 ATS (66%) the past 2+ seasons on these pages, we hold nothing back in Week 4 and fire on at least five underdogs. With 39 outright underdog winners on these pages and picks, you should consider a portion of your bet on the money line.

Here is my weekly ‘recency report’ with current week market moves and the NFL Week 5 look ahead lines. I hope this information helps you in your pursuit of profit, as I try to provide added insights beyond just the picks.

NFL Week 5 Underdog Picks

253 Cleveland (+7) at Baltimore – Browns Money Line +260
258 Miami (+16) vs LA Chargers – Dolphins Money Line +750
262 Detroit (+6.5) vs Kansas City – Lions Money Line +260
264 Buffalo (+7) vs New England – Bills Money Line +280
271 Minnesota (+2.5) at Chicago – Vikings Money Line +120

Analysis to follow as able, and still evaluating more including the Saints (+2.5) at home vs. Dallas. More injury reports to sort through as well, along with stats. For the record, teams that out-rushed their opponent by at least 30 yards had a rare losing week ATS in Week 3 going 4-7 ATS to run the record to 19-15 ATS this season.

I also analyze some of the Week 4 games and cover more sports betting industry news as a co-host in a weekly podcast at The Lines with time stamps on selected coverage. I chip in more with a NFL weekly trends article, noting why they are mostly meaningless.

I’ll sort through more stats and provide a breakdown of the stats and information to use in the weeks ahead on handicapping point of attack play. The Bills (175-67 outrushed Bengals) was a very tough loser for us as a favorite last week when you factor in the number or rushing attempts and domination overall. Buffalo should have absolutely won by a bigger margin completely dominating at halftime but only up 14-0.
