Week 4 has come and gone and, as usual, the game results were wacky when considering the spread, and also straight up. Here are the spreads for Week 5:

Colts at Patriots -10.5
Packers -1.5 at Lions
Giants at Panthers -7
Broncos at Jets -1
Falcons at Steelers -3
Ravens -3 at Browns
Dolphins at Bengals -6.5
Jaguars at Chiefs -3
Titans -3.5 at Bills
Raiders at Chargers -6
Rams -7.5 at Seahawks
Vikings at Eagles -3
Cardinals at 49ers -4.5
Cowboys at Texans -3
Washington at Saints -6.5

Got some interesting spreads this week! The Jets are actually favored at home over the Broncos, and if the Jets win that game, we will know the fix is in. The Raiders are underdogs at the Chargers, and by God that’s free money. Here are this week’s staff picks:
