Week 5 was long, but it came and went, with the majority of our futures attaining value as the week went by. Cleveland’s win against Indianapolis, along with Tennessee’s win against Buffalo, really helped our futures for those teams, and while Dak Prescott’s injury helped Philadelphia, this team is still a longshot to make the playoffs, and hence we found one futures bet with some real value post Week 5.  First, a rundown of where we are (all prices per FanDuel Sportbook):

AFTER WEEK 1

Kansas City to win the Super Bowl: +550 after Week 1, now +450

Seattle to win the NFC West and Super Bowl: +190 and +1400 after Week 1, now -185 and +750

Green Bay to win the Super Bowl: +2600 after Week 1, now +1000

Tennessee to win the AFC South: +125 after Week 1, now -200

 

AFTER WEEK 2

Green Bay to win the NFC North: -140 after Week 2, now -330

Philadelphia to miss the playoffs: -170 after Week 2, now -134

Cardinals to make the playoffs: +104 after Week 2, now +138

 

AFTER WEEK 3

Tampa Bay to win the NFC South: +100 after Week 3, now +145

New England to win the AFC East: +125 after Week 3, now +165

AFTER WEEK 4

Cleveland to make the playoffs: -182 after Week 4, now -245

AFTER WEEK 5

Dallas -125 to win the NFC East

Yes, Prescott is a great quarterback. Yes, Andy Dalton’s best days are behind him, and no Tyron Smith or La’el Collins being out is not the best-case scenario for him moving forward in taking over this offense. That said, the Cowboys may very well have the best trio of wide receivers in the league, Kellen Moore is a top-five play-caller and per our power rankings tool, Dallas has the second-easiest schedule remaining (Philadelphia has the 16th).
