Cardinals vs. Broncos Week 5 Odds Pick

Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos are still looking for their first ATS victory of the season, and the betting trends are with them for this weekend as they play host to the Arizona Cardinals.

The Broncos are a lucrative 13-3 ATS in their last 16 home games after a bye week, and they're also 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the Cardinals - who head into the matchup with a perfect 3-0 SU record on the season. The UNDER has gone 4-1 in the Cardinals' last five games as road underdogs on the NFL betting lines, and the UNDER has also gone 4-1 in the Broncos' last five games as home favorites. However, the OVER is 6-0 in the last six meetings between these two teams.

The Denver Broncos are 2-1 so far on the season, and 0-3 ATS vs the point spread. The Arizona Cardinals, meanwhile, are 3-0 and 2-1 ATS. Those over under betting have seen Denver go 1-2 and the Arizona Cardinals go 0-3 on the totals.

Texans vs Cowboys Week 5 Betting Odds

The Dallas Cowboys play host to the Houston Texans in a battle of surprising 3-1 squads. Little was expected this season from a Cowboys team that finished a mediocre 8-8 and out of the playoffs in 2013. Indeed, coach Jason Garrett was pegged as the preseason NFL props betting favorite to be the first NFL coach fired this season.

But Dallas has impressed, twice posting SU wins as underdogs including last Sunday's 38-17 thrashing of nemesis New Orleans. The Cowboys face a Houston squad that has quickly bounced back from the 14-game losing streak that scarred their 2013 campaign. The defensive-minded Texans are 4-1 ATS in their last five with the UNDER going 5-2 in their last seven.

The Houston Texans will look to cover ATS vs their hosts on Sunday, as they are 3-1 ATS versus the spread this season, while the Dallas Cowboys are 3-1 ATS. Houston is 2-2 against the over under total, while Dallas is 2-2 versus the number.

Super Contest Week 5 Computer Picks

Maybe we will stop calling it the Odds Shark Super Computer and just call it the Odds Shark Computer.

Because after a 6-7 ATS week overall and 1-4 ATS in our Superbook SuperContest picks, the computer is mired in the bottom third of all contestants.

The same guy who chose the five SuperContest picks also benched Jamaal Charles for his fantasy team, so maybe we just need a new guy making the picks.


NFL Trend: Patriots over rested Bengals

As if the New England Patriots needed more problems after getting lashed by the Chiefs on Monday, they play a rested Cincinnati team in Week 5.

But while the Pats are on a short week and facing a 3-0 Bengals team that is coming off a bye and has extra rest on its side, history says the rested team is not a lock to win.

It’s an interesting scenario and handicappers may jump to the conclusion that the rested team enjoying two weeks of healing and practice should handle the team coming off a Monday Nighter with just six days to get ready. But look before you leap.

Stanford vs Notre Dame Week 6 Odds

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are off to a 4-0 start to this season, 3-1 ATS, and are now 14-1 SU, 9-5-1 ATS in games Everett Golson has started at quarterback. But this week the Golden Domers run into a program in Stanford that's given them trouble recently, beating them four of the last five times they've met.

Everett completed 25 passes in a row at one point in a 31-15 victory over Syracuse last week, helping Notre Dame cover as a 10-point favorite. Stanford, meanwhile, just won a big Pac-12 road game at Washington 20-13 but couldn't quite cover the spread at -8.

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are 4-0 so far on the season, and 3-1 ATS vs the point spread. The Stanford Cardinal, meanwhile, are 3-1 and 2-2 ATS. Those over under betting have seen Notre Dame go 1-3 and the Stanford Cardinal go 1-3 on the totals.
