NFL Week 5 odds, over/under: Bills open as underdog to Bengals

Atlanta — Despite back-to-back wins against the Denver Broncos and Atlanta Falcons, the Buffalo Bills are again opening up as an underdog in Week 5.

The Bills are a three-point underdog to the Cincinnati Bengals this week. With the game being in Cincinnati, that helps explain the spread. The Bengals got their first win of the season in Week 4 to improve to 1-3. However, that win came against the Cleveland Browns.

Buffalo, meanwhile, is fresh off a 23-17 win on the road over the Atlanta Falcons. The Bills have not allowed more than 17 points in a single game this season, and their lone loss came by just six points on the road against the Carolina Panthers.

The Bills are also 4-0 against the spread this season. They’ve performed well in the underdog role, but it’s safe to say they won’t be sneaking up on the Bengals. The Bills may be underdogs in Vegas, but the 1-3 Bengals won’t view them that way.
