NFL Week 5 Team Totals Predictions

NFL Week 5 Team Totals Predictions

It has been an interesting start to the 2022 NFL season, as upsets have been the theme through four weeks. There is a full slate of games on tap for week 5 and that means another solid betting opportunity.

Betting the over/under remains one of the three biggest betting options out there, but you can also bet on total points for each team. Here are five of the best team total picks to make.

Green Bay Packers Over 24.5 Points (-110)

Giants vs. Packers Prediction

The Green Bay Packers are in London this week to face the New York Giants in a match-up of 3-1 NFC teams. This is a chance for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to put on a show for the fans in London and this is a match-up that should suit him well.

New York has some weaknesses on the defensive side of the football and that secondary will get exploited. Look for Rodgers to have a massive game as the Packers blow out the Giants in London.

Pittsburgh Steelers Under 15.5 Total Points (-105)

Steelers vs. Bills Prediction

The Pittsburgh Steelers are making a change at the quarterback position as it will be rookie Kenny Pickett taking the snaps. Pickett looks like he could be a future star in the NFL, but he is facing the Buffalo Bills in week 5.

Buffalo typically gets viewed as having one of the best offenses in the league, but that defense has been solid as well. The Bills are going to make it a long start for Pickett as the Steelers go under the 15.5-point total.

Minnesota Vikings Under 25.5 Total Points (-110)

Bears vs. Vikings Prediction

The Vikings host the Chicago Bears in an NFC North showdown on Sunday in what is an interesting game. Minnesota has been putting up some points this season, while the Bears will try to win this game with defense.

That Vikings offense has been hard to ignore, but they are facing a Bears team that will be trying to slow things down in this one. Take the under 25.5 total points, as Chicago will be able to get stops to keep this game close.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Over 28.5 Total Points (-115)

Falcons vs. Buccaneers Prediction

The Buccaneers host the Falcons in a key match-up in the NFC South Division. This NFL game has the potential to be a shootout, as that is the type of game that the Atlanta Falcons have been playing all season long.

It has been a slow start for Tom Brady and the Buccaneers offense in 2022, but that's going to turn around at some point. Bet on the Bucs to go over the 28.5-point total with a huge explosion on offense.

Arizona Cardinals Over 21.5 Total Points (-110)

Eagles vs. Cardinals Prediction

The Arizona Cardinals are 5.5-point underdogs in week 5 as they host the 4-0 Philadelphia Eagles. Philadelphia has been winning games with the offense, but their defense has struggled at times.

This feels like the perfect time for the Cardinals to remind the rest of the league that they can put points on the board as well. Take the over 21.5 points for Arizona, as this will be a game with a ton of touchdowns.
