- The Tennessee Titans spread has them as 4.5-point favorites.
- The Arizona Cardinals gained two points on the spread over the San Francisco 49ers.
- The New York Jets are 2.5-point underdogs against the Atlanta Falcons.
LAS VEGAS – Week 5 of the NFL Sunday slate is about to get underway and there has been plenty of drama that has caused several game lines to shift.
Legal online sportsbooks shifted lines tremendously for several teams including the Tennessee Titans, Arizona Cardinals, and the New York Jets. Each of these lines saw a 1.5-point shift or more since opening following Week 4.
Tennessee Titans Vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
- Opening: Titans -7
- Current: Titans -4.5
At the time of opening, the Titans were favored by 7 points. However, they saw a 2.5-point shift downwards following their latest injury report. After missing Week 4, Titans receiver AJ Brown was listed as questionable to play, while Julio Jones was downgraded to doubtful.
The Titans are coming off of a loss without their two receivers so this shift should not come as a surprise being that one if not both of them might not play.
Arizona Cardinals Vs. San Francisco 49ers
- Opening: Cardinals -6.5
- Current: Cardinals -4.5
The Arizona Cardinals saw a 2-point shift in their favor following the news that San Francisco 49ers starting QB, Jimmy Garoppolo, will not play in Week 5 leaving Trey Lance to start under center.
This is a sizeable yet expected NFL betting line shift being that Lance is a rookie QB going up against a top-ten defense in the NFL.
Atlanta Falcons Vs. New York Jets
- Opening: Falcons -4
- Current: Falcons -2.5
The Atlanta Falcons are currently listed as 2.5-point favorites over the New York Jets after opening the week as 4-point favorites.
There are two main reasons why the Falcons shifted in the wrong direction. The Falcons will be without both of their starting receivers, Calvin Ridley and Russell Gage.
Also, the New York Jets have all the momentum on their side going into the game as they are coming off of their first win of the season.
