The latest Week 5 NFL odds from William Hill show several potentially tight matchups as teams begin to show whether they're contenders or pretenders. The Browns are off to a surprising 3-1 start, but they're only one-point favorites in the latest NFL Vegas lines at home against the Colts. The Falcons are trying to overcome a slow start to the season, and they're going off as 2.5-point favorites over the Carolina Panthers, one of the slimmest NFL betting lines of the week.

Top NFL predictions for Week 5
One of the top Week 5 NFL predictions the model recommends: The Steelers (-7 at William Hill) cover the spread at home against the Eagles. Pittsburgh got an unexpected bye in Week 4 when its game against the Titans was postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests for Tennessee. Philadelphia, meanwhile, limps into this game with a lengthy injury list and just one win in 2020.
The Eagles are just 1-3 against the spread thus far in 2020, while Pittsburgh has covered twice in three games. The Steelers piled up 169 yards on the ground in Week 6 against the Texans, and that success bodes well for their chances in this matchup since Pittsburgh is 13-3-1 against the number in its last 17 games after it had 150-plus rushing yards in the prior matchup. The model is calling for the Steelers to win by double-digits as they cover in almost 60 percent of simulations.
Another one of the top Week 5 NFL picks from the model: The Rams (-7.5) cover as road favorites against Washington. Head coach Ron Rivera announced that Washington will bench Dwayne Haskins Jr. and start Kyle Allen against the Rams. Haskins threw for a season-high 314 yards last week against the Ravens, but that wasn't enough to keep his starting job.
The Rams, meanwhile, struggled to find consistency on offense in their 17-9 victory over the winless New York Giants last week, gaining just 240 total yards on offense. Despite their subdued performance against New York last week, Sean McVay's team will enter Sunday's contest full of confidence. That's because the Rams are averaging 397.3 yards on offense, which ranks seventh in the NFL. Washington's defense, meanwhile, is giving up 28.0 points per game, which ranks in the bottom half of the league.
SportsLine's model projects Jared Goff will throw for 275 yards, while Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp combine for almost 150 receiving yards against Washington, resulting in Los Angeles covering the spread in well over 50 percent of simulations.
