NFL Week 4 Sports Betting Bonus
Vikings vs Saints (Early start)
The Saints got to London earlier than the Vikings, but they are dealing with more injuries. Jameis Winston, Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas will not play in this game. This is not good for a Saints team that has failed to cover the spread this season (0-3 ATS) and who are 1-5 ATS as an underdog. The Vikings win and cover the early game.
Browns at Falcons
When this point spread first came out, there was something stinky about it. The Browns are a much better team, so why the small betting line? Maybe it’s because the Browns are just 8-15 ATS as a favorite and Atlanta is a perfect 3-0 against the number this season. The Browns will be shorthanded on defense after losing Myles Garrett to an injury that he sustained in a car accident. The Falcons will move the ball on offense and beat the Browns.
Bills at Ravens
Thismay be a preview of the AFC Championship game as two talented teams face off in Baltimore. Lamar Jackson will be able to torch a depleted Buffalo secondary and the Ravens are one of the best teams to bet on as an underdog. The Ravens are 14-2 ATS as an underdog and a perfect 5-0 ATS as a home underdog.
Washington at Cowboys
The Cowboys are on upset alert. Everyone loves Cooper Rush for winning ballgames while Dak Prescott gets healthy and they look incredible on defense. However, they will be in trouble today against a Washington team that has struggled up to this point. The Cowboys are off a short week and Wentz can beat this secondary if given time to throw. Washington was crushed last year in Dallas and will be out for revenge.
Seahawks at Lions
The Lions are limping into this game and will not have Swift or St Brown on offense and that will be a big problem. Seattle is starting to produce on offense and Geno Smith knows how to cash tickets with a 22-15 ATS record in his career. The Seahawks take down the Lions.
Chargers at Texans
The Texans may not be winning but they are keeping games close and today they face a Chargers team that is crushed by injuries. LA is 0-3 straight up as road favorites under Brandon Staley who will be on the hot seat when they lose in Houston today. Don’t take the Chargers as your survivor pick. The Texans are 2-0-1 ATS this season and will remain perfect after cashing in today.
Titans at Colts
The Colts got back on track with a big win against the Chiefs last week. With a win against the Titans, they can get right back into the race for the division. The Titans are -33 which is the worst in the league and are having a tough season. Derrick Henry is the only threat on a team that looks lost offensively. The favorite has covered 14 of 19 games in this series.
Bears at Giants
Well, something has to give in to what might be the ugliest game of the day. Both the Bears and the Giants are winning but it ain’t pretty. The Bears are 9-17 ATS on the road and 4-11 ATS as an underdog. The Giants have the better offense and they will take down the Bears at home. This may be tough to watch, but Big Blue wins at home.
Jaguars at Eagles
Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are having an incredible start to the season but will get a test against Jacksonville on Sunday. This will be the best defense that Philly has faced this year. Jacksonville is a new team under Doug Pederson who makes his return to Philadelphia and would love to beat his former team. The Eagles are 4-11-1 ATS after a win against the spread and will be involved in a clash that comes down to the final minutes.
Jets at Steelers
I am not ready to bet on Pittsburgh laying points with all of the problems they have had on offense. They are also just 1-5 ATS as a favorite and face a Jets team that actually looks pretty good on offense and will get Zach Wilson back under center. The Steeler’s poor play today will finally lead to the benching of Mitch Trubisky.
Arizona at Carolina
This is the kind of game that Arizona has to win if they have hopes of making the playoffs. The Cardinals thrive as a road underdog and have won seven straight games in that spot. The Panthers have injuries, and quarterback problems and have lost seven straight games outright as a favorite. Kyler Murray leads the Cards to an easy road victory over Carolina.
Patriots at Packers
Bill Belichick is one of the best coaches ever, but he won’t have any answers today. Brian Hoyer starts at QB and he does not have the arm strength to stretch the field. That will allow the Packer’s defense to compress the field and shorten drives for New England. That leaves Aaron Rodgers all day to expose a tired Patriots defense. Green Bay is 4-0 ATS as a double-digit favorite and 17-7 ATS when favored at home.
Broncos vs Raiders
This AFC West matchup features two of the biggest disappointments of the young season. Las Vegas has yet to cover a game this season but will love to see Denver coming to town since they have covered eight of the last nine meetings. The Broncos commit too many penalties and they have yet to get the offense on track. The Raiders finally get a win.
