ESPN.com offered up what it believes to be the NFL’s 10 biggest surprises so far this season.  Some of these are no-brainers.  Gambling911.com also has the latest updated odds that should be locked in here as they are bound to change following Week 5.   

Buffalo Bills – A solid defense that helped the Bills beat the reigning NFC champs, on the road no less.  Buffalo has allowed a league-low 13.5 points per game through four weeks.

The Bills are 4-0 Against The Spread.  They still pay $450 for every $100 bet to win the AFC East.

New York Jets – Many had them winning zero games this season and already they have two more wins than that other New York team (2-2 vs. 0-4). If you have them winning OVER 3.5 regular season games, your pay day will be here shortly.  

New York Giants – Speaking of that other New York team, nobody expected this offense to be so bad. 

Bill Barnwell writes:

The entire team is playing worse -- the New York defense has regressed toward the mean in terms of health and red zone performance, with young contributors such as Eli Apple and Landon Collins slipping so far -- but the offense has come in for particular scrutiny. General manager Jerry Reese loaded up his cart with weapons this offseason, signing Brandon Marshall and using a first-round pick on athletic tight end Evan Engram, giving Eli Manning a bevy of options alongside Odell Beckham Jr. and Sterling Shepard.  Through four games, the extra weapons haven't helped.

Denver Broncos – A stifling defense has helped this team advance to a 3-1 start while going 2-1-1 Against The Spread.

This is a tightly contested division with AFC West division odds to be updated later on Tuesday.

Houston Texans – They finally might have a franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson.   This is another tightly contested division with three teams playing better than many had anticipated.  Houston has the best ATS record at 3-1, so this speaks volumes.  The Texans will pay $160 on a $100 bet should they win the AFC South.

LA Rams – 3-1, nuff said.  Oddsmakers still have Seattle winning the division so you can get the Rams at 3.5/1 for a potential $350 payout on every $100 bet.

Other Surprises – The Miami Dolphins horrid offense, New England appears to have the worst defense in the NFL, the Detroit Lions are better than expected thanks to takeaways and Kansas City as the last undefeated team of the season.

Honorable Mention From Gambling911 – An obvious one, the Washington Redskins are looking really good this season.
