  • Using the Action Network's betting tools, we've broken down the key numbers, most lopsided spreads & totals and the biggest line moves of NFL Week 5.

Key Numbers

Bucs-Saints (-3): Are the Bucs, who could be 3-1 had someone not intentionally moved their kicker farther back, for real? Are Teddy B’s Saints, who looked like garbage initially but have won two straight games against two good teams, also for real?

Odds as of Wednesday at 10 a.m. ET. Check out via PointsBet, where Action Network users get an exclusive 200% deposit match (deposit $50, bet with $150).

The oddsmakers seem to believe that with Brees out of the equation, these two teams are essentially just as good as one another if they were to play at a neutral location. Some early lines for this game a week ago had the Saints favored by five or six points, but the Bucs’ dominant offensive display in LA changed that.

After reopening at +4.5, big bets (53% of bets, 68% of money) have come in on Tampa to move the line all the way down to the key number of three.

Browns-49ers (-3.5): We saw a similar line adjustment in San Fran following Cleveland’s dismantling of the Ravens’ defense. The Niners were around -5 on the lookahead line, but found themselves as just a three-point favorite on Sunday night.
