    Cantor Gaming has released their point spreads for the 2013 NFL season. Below we look at some of the notable games from Week 5 through Week 8. Click here for Week 1 to Week 4.

    Cantor Gaming released their lines for Week 1 through Week 16 (lines are not posted for Week 17 because there is uncertainty in player participation) and as such we look at some of the notable games in this year’s NFL schedule. Below we review Week 5 through Week 8 with the rest of the schedule coming in succession.

    Week 5

    Houston Texans (+5.5) @ San Francisco 49ers

    Quarterbacks beware; this matchup features two of the best rushers in the league. The 49ers’ Aldon Smith used his speed to rack up 19.5 sacks last year while J.J. Watt used power to accumulate 20.5 sacks for the Texans.

    New York Jets (+7) @ Atlanta Falcons

    The Falcons won 13 games last season, if they hope to replicate that same success they will need to handle a Jets team that went 3-5 last year on the road. Atlanta had a point differential of +60 at home while New York had a point differential of -40 on the road last season. 

    Buffalo Bills (+1.5) @ Cleveland Browns

    Not every game is notable and this game will not be seen in Prime Time, it may not even be seen locally. The Browns and Bills participated in three games last season that were blacked out. No game hosted by Cleveland was blacked out but the chance remains for a team that has not won more than five games since 2007. 

    Rest of the lines for Week 5.

    Visiting Team Visiting Line Home Team Home Line
    Bills 1.5 Browns -1.5
    Saints 1 Bears -1
    Patriots -1.5 Bengals 1.5
    Jaguars 6.5 Rams -6.5
    Ravens -1 Dolphins 1
    Eagles 4 Giants -4
    Lions 4.5 Packers -4.5
    Chiefs PK Titans PK
    Seahawks -4 Colts 4
    Panthers -1.5 Cardinals 1.5
    Broncos -2.5 Cowboys 2.5
    Chargers -2.5 Raiders 2.5
    Texans 5.5 49ers -5.5
    Jets 7 Falcons -7

    Week 6

    Washington Redskins (+1.5) @ Dallas Cowboys

    A rematch of last year’s do-or-die finale, Tony Romo will look to redeem himself after throwing 3 interceptions helping to knock the Cowboys out of the playoff race. Jerry Jones must have forgot about this performance when he signed Romo to a six-year $108 million extension.

    New York Giants (+2.5) @ Chicago Bears

    This game has potential early-season playoff implications. Both the Giants and the Bears missed last year’s playoffs after each team finished the season 2-3 in their last five games. It’s important to start strong if you cannot finish late.

    Indianapolis Colts (+2.5) @ San Diego Chargers

    Andrew Luck will get a tough road game against Philip Rivers on Monday Night Football. Four of the Colts’ five losses last year came on the road. Luck threw 13 of his 18 interceptions when playing away from Indianapolis.

    Rest of the lines for Week 6.

    Visiting Team Visiting Line Home Team Home Line
    Giants 2.5 Bears -2.5
    Bengals -2.5 Bills 2.5
    Lions -1 Browns 1
    Raiders 4.5 Chiefs -4.5
    Panthers 2.5 Vikings -2.5
    Eagles 1.5 Buccaneers -1.5
    Packers 1 Ravens -1
    Rams 4.5 Texans -4.5
    Steelers -1.5 Jets 1.5
    Jaguars 14 Broncos -14
    Titans 11 Seahawks -11
    Saints 4 Patriots -4
    Cardinals 10 49ers -10
    Redskins 1.5 Cowboys -1.5
    Colts 2.5 Chargers -2.5

    Week 7

    Denver Broncos (-3.5) @ Indianapolis Colts

    Peyton Manning makes his return to Indianapolis and hopes to remind Colts fans what they are missing. Peyton in his 13-year tenure in Indianapolis, threw for 54,828 yards and 399 touchdowns.

    Minnesota Vikings (+3) @ New York Giants

    AP averaged 131 yards rushing per game. The Giants last year had the 8th worst rush defense allowing 129 yards per game. “All Day” may run all day on the Giants if they do not load the box against the Purple Jesus.

    Seattle Seahawks (-6) @ Arizona Cardinals

    Seattle routed Arizona 58-0 last year forcing eight turnovers. The shutout was the fourth largest in the NFL since 1940. Cardinals’ quarterbacks were 1 for 11 with 3 INTs when targeting Larry Fitzgerald in this game; Carson Palmer should improve upon those numbers.

    Rest of the lines for Week 7.

    Visiting Team Visiting Line Home Team Home Line
    Seahawks -6 Cardinals 6
    Buccaneers 6 Falcons -6
    Bengals 1.5 Lions -1.5
    Texans -2.5 Chiefs 2.5
    Bills 4 Dolphins -4
    Patriots -4 Jets 4
    Cowboys PK Eagles PK
    Bears 1.5 Redskins -1.5
    Rams 3.5 Panthers -3.5
    Chargers -3.5 Jaguars 3.5
    49ers -7 Titans 7
    Ravens 1.5 Steelers -1.5
    Browns 7.5 Packers -7.5
    Broncos -3.5 Colts 3.5
    Vikings 3 Giants -3

    Week 8

    New York Giants (PK) @ Philadelphia Eagles

    Chip Kelly gets his first chance to host the Giants in one of the most intense rivalries in the NFL. The teams split their meetings last year and the loser of this contest will not have to wait long for redemption as they play again three weeks later.

    Green Bay Packers (-1) @ Minnesota Vikings

    Greg Jennings gets to play host to his former team for the first time after signing a five-year $47.5 million deal with the Vikings in the offseason. Jennings was either first or second in receiving yards in each of his first six seasons with Green Bay. Injuries limited Jennings to just eight games last season.

    Seattle Seahawks (-4) @ St. Louis Rams

    Once considered the worst division in football, the NFC West features two of the best teams (Seahawks and 49ers) in the NFC and a Rams team that went 4-1-1 in the division last season. St. Louis gets a chance to make a statement in what suddenly looks to be a tough division.

    Rest of the lines for Week 8.

    Panthers 1.5 Buccaneers -1.5
    Cowboys 1 Lions -1
    Browns 2.5 Chiefs -2.5
