NFL Week 5 Who’s Hot and Who’s Not

The first quarter of the 2017 NFL regular season is in the books and to say that this year’s start has been a bit surprising would be a huge understatement. The only undefeated team left is Kansas City at 4-0 both SU and against the spread and the defending champion New England Patriots have already matched last season’s loss total at 2-2 SU with a 1-3 record ATS.

The Chiefs would have to be considered the league’s hottest team heading into a Week 5 showdown against the Houston Texans (2-2 SU, 3-1 ATS) this Sunday night as slight 1.5-point road favorites with BetAnySports. They could be in for a tough matchup with the Texans coming off an impressive 57-14 rout of Tennessee as 2.5-point underdogs at home.

One of the biggest surprises in the first quarter of the season is the Buffalo Bills atop the AFC East at 3-1 SU with a profitable 3-0-1 record ATS. They just knocked the Atlanta Falcons (3-1 SU, 2-2 ATS) from the ranks of the undefeated in Sunday’s 23-17 upset as eight-point underdogs on the road. This followed a 26-16 victory over Denver in Week 3 in which Buffalo closed as a three-point underdog at home. The Bills will stay on the road this week against Cincinnati (1-3 SU, 2-2 ATS) as three-point underdogs on BetAnySports’ current betting line.

Pittsburgh has taken the early lead in the AFC North at 3-1 SU (2-2 ATS) with last Sunday’s 26-9 victory against division rival Baltimore as a 3.5-point home favorite. The Steelers will play host to Jacksonville this Sunday as 8.5-point favorites against the 2-2 (SU and ATS) Jaguars. The Ravens will be back in action against the 2-2 (SU and ATS) Oakland Raiders this Sunday in a game that is still ‘off the board’ at BetAnySports.

Over in the NFC, Green Bay and Atlanta lead their respective division at 3-1 SU which is no big surprise. The other two division leaders after four games is a bit of a shock with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Los Angeles Rams leading the way at 3-1. All four of these teams are an even 2-2 ATS.

There are four teams still looking for their first SU victory of the year. The New York Giants and the San Francisco 49ers are off to a 0-4 start in the NFC, while the Cleveland Browns and the Los Angeles Chargers stand at 0-4 in the AFC. Of the four, only the 49ers have a winning record ATS at 3-1.
