NFL Week 5 and College Football Storylines

The big Sunday night NFL betting game in Week 5 features the Buffalo Bills against the Kansas City Chiefs. The AFC East-leading Bills are 3-1 this season, while the Chiefs are just 2-2 and sitting last in the AFC West.

Despite the Bills appearing to be the superior team so far this season, the Chiefs opened as 3.5-point favorites. However, the betting public has backed the Bills early on, and the line on the Chiefs has been bet down to -2.5.

The Chiefs are coming off a Super Bowl loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but two years ago they beat the San Francisco 49ers to win the title. They are expected to be a contender again this year, but they are off to just a 2-2 start despite QB Patrick Mahomes getting off to a hot start himself.

The superstar QB and former NFL MVP has already thrown for a league-leading 14 touchdowns, and he currently has career highs in QB rating and completion percentage. Despite that blazing-hot start, the team has struggled as a whole to win games due to poor defense.

The Bills, meanwhile, are led by QB Josh Allen, who has also had a strong start to the season. Fresh off his first Pro Bowl appearance and signing a new contract, Allen has the Bills off to a 3-1 start and leading the AFC East once again.

For many years, the Bills were bottom dwellers in their division, but not anymore. With Allen under center, the Bills have a chance to go far in the playoffs if the team stays healthy. In this matchup against Mahomes and the Chiefs, you have two of the best young quarterbacks in the league going against one another.

The oddsmakers have set the NFL line total at 56.5 points for this matchup, indicating a shootout between two of the best young QBs in football.

In college football betting, one of Saturday’s biggest games features the Georgia Bulldogs against the Auburn Tigers. The Bulldogs are 5-0 so far this season while the Tigers are 4-1.

In what should be a great game between two of the better college football teams, the Bulldogs opened up as -14.5 point favorites to win the game based on the latest college football lines.
