Through the first four weeks of the 2022 NFL schedule, there are 15 teams that have 2-2 records. There's so much parity in the NFL that a .500 record is good enough for a share of first place in four of the league's eight divisions.

The Bills are 14-point favorites over the Steelers in the Week 5 NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook and could be a popular play in Week 5 NFL pool picks.

Top Week 5 NFL office pool predictions
One of the top Week 5 NFL predictions from the model: The Miami Dolphins win by nearly a touchdown against the New York Jets. Tua Tagovailoa's absence (concussion) is a major concern for the Dolphins, but having one of the more experienced backup quarterbacks in the NFL is a major plus.
The Jets rank 25th in scoring defense and Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill figure to be a tough matchup for a Jets defense that has already allowed multiple 50-plus-yard touchdowns this season. Meanwhile, the Jets have already turned the ball over nine times and the model is predicting Miami forces two more turnovers in Week 5. That's why the model predicts that the Dolphins win outright in well over 60 percent of simulations. See the rest of the model's Week 5 NFL pool picks here.
