Obviously, the NFL is getting a little choppy with how many games are getting moved around, but even before that, Week 5’s board wasn’t setting up as the strongest one. It should be a light week for me, but there are some spots that stand out. Here are some bets that jump out in Week 5 on DraftKings Sportsbook.
Let’s start with the most square spot on the board. Betting the Cardinals will probably be the most public play in Week 5, but you can’t talk me out of fading the Jets. Sam Darnold, Joe Flacco, whatever. As long as Adam Gase is the head coach, I’ll continue fading. The Jets are 0-4 ATS, failing to cover by more than 10 points per game. Maybe the Cardinals aren’t the breakout team we thought they’d be after the 2-0 start, but they’re in a spectacular position to bounce back from consecutive losses, both as slight favorites.
The Panthers are a pretty sharp play this week, already getting bet past the key number of +3. If that becomes available, that’s the play I’d
