NFL tips: Our 7/1 four-fold for Week 5
The Saints and Cowboys are among the teams that feature in Jack Green's NFL tips for the fifth week of the season.
Back any NFL team to win and Betway will pay you out as a winner if they lead by 14 points or more at any time. Here are Jack Green's picks for Week 5.
Arizona Cardinals to beat Cincinnati Bengals
Expect the Cardinals to get their first win of the season against the Bengals, who lost 27-3 to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night to fall to 0-4.
Arizona have lost three successive games since tying 27-27 with the Detroit Lions in Week 1, but have been beaten by three good teams and now face a much weaker opponent.
The Bengals have scored the third-fewest points in the NFL while conceding the fifth-most. They struggled against the Steelers’ back-up quarterback Mason Rudolph, which doesn’t bode well for their chances of containing Kyler Murray, the Cardinals’ exciting rookie.
New Orleans Saints to beat Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Saints are 2-0 since star quarterback Drew Brees was injured in Week 2 after beating the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys, both of whom are among the best teams in the NFC.
New Orleans now face Tampa Bay, who scored 55 points in a win over the Los Angeles Rams but are still 2-2 thanks to defeats against the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants.
Quarterback Jameis Winston played well against the Rams but has struggled with turnovers this season, and the Saints defence – who were excellent last Sunday – should create enough pressure to force the 25-year-old into mistakes.
Chicago Bears to beat Oakland Raiders
The season’s first London game should be low-scoring and gritty. That suits the Bears, who are a suffocating defensive team that are yet to concede more than 15 points in a game.
They force enough turnovers to dominate field position and create easy scoring opportunities, and extended their winning streak to three games last week by beating the Minnesota Vikings 16-6.
The Raiders beat the Indianapolis Colts last week, but lost 34-14 to the Vikings in Week 3 and will struggle to score against another great defence on Sunday.
Dallas Cowboys to beat Green Bay Packers
The Cowboys should take advantage of a Green Bay team that are yet to find their stride this season.
The Packers should be one of the best offensive teams in the league with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, but they have struggled to implement Matt LaFleur’s scheme and rank just 17th in points per game.
Dallas have been far more impressive, ranking seventh in that category, and star running back Ezekiel Elliott should be in for a huge day against a Packers defence that ranks fourth-last in rushing yards per attempt.
