NFL Odds Released For Week 5; Cam Newton Injury Keeps MNF Off Board
Cam Newton’s injury status has the Monday Night Football game off the board for now, but odds are posted on all remaining week 5 contests. Already major sports services and pro bettors’ picks are revealed. Tom Brady returns for the New England Patriots against the lowly Cleveland Browns, triggering the first double-digit home underdog of the season.
It all kicks off Thursday night with the Arizona Cardinals at the San Francisco 49ers. While there was speculation the 49ers would turn to divisive QB Colin Kaepernick to replace struggling Blaine Gabbert, the latter is expected to start against Arizona backup QB Drew Stanton. Starting QB Carson Palmer is out.
Rookie QB Carson Wentz has finally gotten respect, as his Philadelphia Eagles are now a field goal road favorite at Detroit. All the remaining odds are posted.
