NFL betting action heads to Landover on Sunday afternoon for a crucial clash between NFC rivals, as the Atlanta Falcons hit the road to battle it out with the Washington Redskins.
And then there were two. With the Arizona Cardinals losing on Thursday, Atlanta is now the only team in the NFC and one of the two in football (joining the Houston Texans) to still have a donut in the loss column.
The Baltimore Ravens look like one of the best teams in the NFL through the first four games of the season. Some expected a big bounce back season from Kansas City, but it hasn’t happened thus far. The Chiefs are still looking for their first win at home. Kansas City always has a nice home field advantage. Can Baltimore go on the road and win or will it be Kansas City getting their first home win of the season?
Here at Bang the Book, we have all of the top matchups of the 2012 NFL betting campaign covered! Today, we’re taking a look at the best matchups for Week 5!
It’s not all that often that these two teams from the state of Pennsylvania hook up, but normally when they do, the battle is a big one. This is no exception. Steelers fans have to be excited about the fact that LB James Harrison, S Troy Polamalu, and RB Rashard Mendenhall are going to be back in the fold, and this is the first time that the team is going to feel relatively complete. That’s why this one is so important for the men in black and gold.
NFC West rivals that are hoping to get into the playoffs this year are going to battle it out in a crucial tilt at the Edward Jones Dome for Thursday Night Football betting action this week, as the St. Louis Rams face the Arizona Cardinals.
Arizona’s defense had its first atrocious game last week, as the yardage just kept piling up against the Miami Dolphins. QB Ryan Tannehill, a rookie playing in just his fourth ever game, threw for over 400 yards, and the secondary just had no answers whatsoever.
The NFL heads into Week 5 with several teams starting to separate from the pack as contenders and one of those teams is the San Francisco 49ers. After losing to the Minnesota Vikings, the 49ers traveled to the east coast to completely dismantle the New York Jets.
Now the San Francisco 49ers head home to host the Bills. The Bills were ambushed by a non-stop, high-octane New England offense that exploded in the second half on the way to a blowout of the Bills. The Bills have to regroup and attempt to lift their heads and spirits as the head to the west coast to battle San Francisco.
The Houston Texans successfully navigated their way past Tennessee this past Sunday to remain the only undefeated team in the AFC. New England climbed back to .500 at 2-2 and Cleveland is still looking for its first win of the year. The following is a handicapping report for the top three matchups in the AFC this week with lines provided by UcaBet.

Chicago bounced-back from a poor performance on the road against Green Bay in Week 2 with a solid 23-6 thrashing of St. Louis last Sunday as a seven-point favorite at home. The net result is a 2-1 start both straight-up and against the spread. The total stayed UNDER in both of these games.
Much was made about quarterback Jay Cutler’s sideline antics in the loss to Green Bay, but Bears’ fans should be much more concerned about his performance on the field with six interceptions against just three touchdowns and a completion percentage of 58.6 through his first three games.
If there was ever any question of head coach Sean Payton’s value to his team before, it is surely been answered in the Saints shocking 0-3 start to the season. They have now lost to Washington, Carolina, and Kansas City as favorites in each game while getting outscored by a total of 19 points.
It has been a mess so far on both sides of the ball. All-Pro quarterback Drew Brees has completed less than 55 percent of his passes and has been picked off five times after throwing just 14 interceptions all last season.
