Week 4 in the NFL was highly entertaining, but a first look at the Week 5 odds and betting lines indicate some snoozers.
The Monday morning lines show eight games with spreads of at least a touchdown, and that includes the Buffalo Bills opening as massive 14-point favorites against a Pittsburgh Steelers team that could be bringing a rookie, Kenny Pickett, to Orchard Park to make his first career start. We also have another London game, as the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers will cross the pond where Aaron Rodgers and company open as 8-point chalk.
Here are the Week 5 lines and totals, per DraftKings Sportsbook.
