NFL 2020 Week 5 O/U Picks & Expert Analysis
After 4 weeks of the NFL season, we have seen the number of undefeated teams reduced to 6. There are no real surprises to be found in that mix, but you do have to wonder how much longer those teams can continue to stay unbeaten with the injuries and movement of games because of COVID beginning to have an impact. All of that aside, we are seeing a lot of offensive football, with scoring at a level that we have not seen since the 70s. It’s no real surprise then that we have been looking at the OVER quite a bit when making our O/U picks, but like the undefeated teams, you wonder how long this pace can be maintained. Still, we are going to take into account the high level of offense that we have seen when making out O/U picks. Please remember that we will also have Week 5 SU and ATS picks coming your way. Let’s jump right into action so you can set down your bets against their NFL odds.
Week 5 O/U Picks for the 2020 Season | NFL Betting
Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens (OVER 51)
It’s not quite time to break out the champagne in Cincinnati just yet, but the Bengals are now on a 2-game unbeaten streak after a tie and a victory in their last 2 games. They do, though, look to have their franchise QB in place, as Joe Burrow has looked fantastic through the opening 4 weeks of his life in the NFL. It is still going to be a big job to build around him, but things are looking better for the Bengals. Those happy times may come to an end this weekend, though, as they will be on the road to face the high-flying Baltimore Ravens. The Bengals have seen the OVER hit in 6 of their last 8 games, and while it has been the UNDER that has been trending with the Ravens, I think we see this one sneak OVER the point total.
New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys (OVER 54)
There is still a lot of football to be played, but as it stands at the moment, the NFC East is far and away the worst division in football. After the first 4 weeks of the season, the 4 teams in the East are looking at a combined record of 3-12-1. Keep in mind that one of these teams will make it to the postseason, but who will it be. You still feel as though the Dallas Cowboys can come good, but they will need to find a way to bet better on the defensive side of the football. The Cowboys have been in shootout games all season long, and while the Giants offense is maybe not good enough to get sucked into that, I still think we see this one go OVER.
Indianapolis Colts at Cleveland Browns (OVER 47)
Both of these teams will come into this game on 3-game winning streaks, so something has to give this weekend. We are not looking at win and losses with these two, though, as this is all about the point total. After a poor showing in Week 1, the Browns offense is beginning to click, which is why they have seen each of their last 3 games go OVER the point total. The Colts, on the other hand, have been trending towards the UNDER, but that switches when they play conference opponents, with 4 of their last 6 in those matchups going OVER.
