The NFL season has reached the quarter mark and there are several great matchups in store for week 5. Although relatively early, the game between the Browns and Chargers could have playoff implications. We’ll take a look at that matchup and four others.
Cleveland Browns versus Los Angeles Chargers
Both teams enter the game with records of 3-1. This game is very evenly matched and both +17 on the Power Ranking Indicator and “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator. The Score Predictor gives the Browns an edge of 20-17 with 76 percent confidence. The Chargers are 1.5-point home favorites with an over/under of 50.5. Better “under” is a smart play with both teams involved in games under the line. I like the Chargers to win by a field goal.
Denver Broncos versus Pittsburgh Steelers
Denver is one of the surprise teams in the league at 3-1, while the Steelers have stumbled out of the gate at 1-3. The Broncos have a +31 to +14 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator and “burning hot down” versus “ice cold down” on the Team Strength Oscillator. Denver is a 1/2-point favorite with an over/under of 39.5 The Score Predictor has the Broncos winning in a 37-18 blowout with 63 percent confidence. The Totals Predictor shows that the teams have been trending in games “under” the line. I like the Broncos to win but avoid the over/under.
Buffalo Bills versus Kansas City Chiefs
The Bills are off to a 3-1 start but face their toughest test so far against the 2-2 Chiefs. Buffalo has a +23 to +15 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator and “burning hot” versus “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator. The Chiefs are a 2 1/2 – point favorite with odds of 1.67 to 2.180 with an over/under of 56.5. The Score Predictor has the Bills winning a tight game, 30-29 with 68 percent confidence. This coincides with the Totals Predictor showing that both teams have been trending in games “over” the line. Go with the over and the Chiefs at home by a Harrison Butker field goal late.
Indianapolis Colts versus Baltimore Ravens
The Colts earned their first win of the season last week and the Ravens enter play at 3-1. The Ravens are “burning hot” and +22 on the Power Ranking Indicator, while the Colts are “average” and +3. Baltimore is nearly a full touchdown and extra point favorite at -6.5 with odds of 1.31 to 3.36 with an over/under of 45.5. The Score Predictor has the Ravens winning by a 41-20 score with 68 percent confidence. The teams have been trending on opposite sides of the line, so it’s best to avoid the over/under. Go with the Ravens to win and cover.
Green Bay Packers versus Cincinnati Bengals
The Packers and Bengals enter with identical 3-1 records. Green Bay has a +26 to +16 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator and both teams are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator. Green Bay is a 3.5-point road favorite with odds of 1.59 to 2.352 with an over/under of 50.5. Defenses have been tough with both teams involved in games trending “under” the line. The Score Predictor has the Packers winning by the score of 27-18 with 65 percent confidence. I like betting “under” with the Packers winning and covering.
