Top NFL Week 5 Odds, Picks & Predictions

Written by on July 25, 2017

Week 5 of the NFL season is the first full weekend of October so we should know what teams are at that point. If you are two games under .500 by then, forget about the playoffs. If you are at least two over, then you are in good shape. Here are two interesting NFL Week 5 games with their latest betting odds from MyBookie.

Top NFL Week 5 Odds, Picks & Predictions

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins

When: Sunday, Oct. 8, 1 PM ET Where: Hard Rock Stadium, Miami TV: CBS Radio: WGFX 104.5 FM (Tennessee) / AM 560 WQAM (Miami) Opening NFL Week 5 Lines: Dolphins -3 This could have playoff implications – don’t laugh. The Dolphins have almost no chance of winning the AFC East because of course the Patriots are in that division. But Miami was a wild-card team in 2016 and could be again. Tennessee is on the rise after finishing 9-7 last year but losing a tiebreaker for the AFC South title with Houston. Titans QB Marcus Mariota has been limited throughout the offseason while recovering from a broken leg but he’s apparently back to 100 percent. Ten pounds lighter and equipped with the best receiving corps he’s ever had, Mariota should be in for a breakout season. Meanwhile, running back DeMarco Murray’s ring finger is fully healing following early-June surgery. The minor operation corrected a “nagging injury”Murray suffered last Week 2. Murray was enjoying a renaissance season in his first year with the Titans, totaling 1,664 yards from scrimmage and 12 touchdowns.

Will Pouncey Return to Miami on Time?

The Dolphins are awaiting word on the health of Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey. He is due to have his surgically repaired hip for examination this week. Pouncey is hoping to be cleared for training camp, but may be placed on active/PUP regardless. The Dolphins aren’t taking any chances after Pouncey misses all but five games last year. Pouncey is doubtful to get many preseason reps, but remains on track for Week 1. Safety T.J. McDonald T.J. McDonald is expecting to push for the starting job opposite Reshad Jones when he returns from suspension. McDonald can’t return until Week 9, but is likely to have an immediate role as the top safety behind Jones. Miami hosted Tennessee in Week 5 last year as well and lost 30-17. Mariota threw for three touchdowns and ran for another score. He went 20 for 29 for 163 yards with no interceptions, and ran seven times for 60 yards. Murray added 121 yards rushing for the Titans, who totaled 235 on the ground. The Titans were sacking Ryan Tannehill six times. Tannehill finished 12 for 18 for 191 yards with two interceptions.

Green Bay Packers at Dallas Cowboys

When: Sunday, Oct. 8, 4:25 PM ET Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington TV: Fox Radio: WTMJ-AM 620 (Green Bay) / 105.3 The FAN (Dallas) Stream Option: NFL Live Opening NFL Week 5 Lines: Cowboys This is one of the 10, maybe 5, biggest games of the year as it could definitely determine home-field advantage in a playoff matchup. Of course the Packers won the NFC North last year and Dallas took the East with the NFC’s best record at 13-3. But the Packers went to Big D in the divisional round, winning a thriller  34-31. Aaron Rodgers threw a 36-yard pass to a toe-dragging Jared Cook on the sideline, and Mason Crosby kicked a 51-yard field goal on the next play as time expired. The throw on the run from Rodgers to Cook came on third-and- 20 with 12 seconds left, and after the Cowboys tied the score twice in the final 4:08 after trailing by 18 in the first half and by 15 to start the fourth quarter. Crosby’s winner was the third field goal of more than 50 yards in the final 1:33 — two from Crosby and one from Dallas’ Dan Bailey.

How is Green Bay Looking This Season?

The Packers are losing No. 1 running back Eddie Lacy to free agency this offseason. But Packers RBs coach Ben Sirmans says fourth-round RB Jamaal Williams will open camp as the No. 2 running back. With former receiver Ty Montgomery atop the depth chart, the No. 2 job in Green Bay could end up being a valuable fantasy asset. Williams will get the nod entering camp, but Sirmans made it clear everyone will get their shot. “The biggest thing is just competition,” Sirmans said. “With so many different guys, somebody isgoing to have to rise to the top.” Montgomery has the potential to be a three-down running back if he learns to protect Rodgers, but could lose snaps to FB Aaron Ripkowski or rookies if not.

What Will Happen to Elliot?

Jerry Jones said he has seen “absolutely nothing” to substantiate domestic violence allegations against Ezekiel Elliott. Earlier in the same press conference, Jerry also said the Cowboys have no tolerance for off-field issues. They’re expecting that Elliott will have a suspension for a game or two. Elliott and his representatives have responded to the NFL’s investigation, answering any lingering questions that had previously been unanswered. The NFL has reportedly shared its findings with Elliott as well as the NFLPA. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett: “We have built this team over the last five or six years with great character guys. We believe very strongly in that. That is the kind of team we want to have.” The Cowboys have had several guys get into trouble this offseason. One of them, receiver Lucky Whitehead, was cut on Monday. Whitehead made news just last week for saying his XL Bully puppy had been stolen and was being held for ransom. On Tuesday he announced on Snapchat that he had been united with Blitz.

Green Bay at Dallas NFL Week 5 Prediction

Assuming Elliott is back from suspension by this point, I like Dallas to get a little payback. However, I do think the Packers will have a successful season in 2017. But for this upcoming matchup, I don’t see the odds in Green Bay’s favor. We will have to wait and see once October hits!
