NFL Week 5 picks, predictions:

The Arizona Republic: Eagles 38, Cardinals 35

Jeremy Cluff writes: "The Eagles have been the cream of the NFL crop so far this season, but the Cardinals did appear to find their footing in the second half against the Panthers. Philadelphia will win a thriller in Arizona."

Bookies.com: Take the over in Eagles vs. Cardinals game

Bill Speros writes: "Two offenses that could be moving toward opposite destinations. The Eagles have all the buzz while the Cardinals may have already peaked in this iteration. The 4-0 Eagles are the lone unbeaten team in the NFL heading into this Week 5 matchup. The remaining members of the 1972 Dolphins will have the champagne on ice. But there will be no cork popping on this Sunday. Given the size of this line, we're focused on the total. Philly has scored 24 or more points each week this season and is averaging 27.8 points per game. The Cardinals can be productive, too. We like the Over for our NFL Week 5 best bets."

It writes: "The Cardinals may have had a convincing win in Week 4, but it came against a clearly inferior Panthers team. Meanwhile, the Eagles are the only undefeated team and they rank in the top-10 in both points scored per game (28.7) and fewest points allowed (16.7). Philadelphia has a high-powered offense to compliment a stout defense, and they should remain undefeated in Week 5."

The site's formula predicts a big victory for the Eagles over the Cardinals on Sunday.

Fan Duel: Eagles 24, Cardinals 20

Larry Rupp writes: "This is the first true opportunity for the Eagles to prove they are one of the best teams in the NFC. So far, their first four games have come against opponents that did not make the playoffs last season. That is no longer the case. Kyler Murray is the first dual-threat quarterback they will take on as well. There's no reason to stop backing Philly now, though. The Eagles are averaging the second-most yards per game (435.5) and allowing the third-fewest yards per game (277.3) in the NFL. They have put together an elite balanced roster and will cause head coach Kliff Kingsbury a ton of frustration."
