NFL Odds Week 4
Last week wasn't good or bad, as we went 4-4 bringing out record to 9-6 on the season. The Broncos, Lions, and Colts hit for us, as well as the Cowboys in an exciting Sunday night game against the lowly Bears. We lost with the Jaguars, but only because got on it too late and missed the opener. The Dolphins, Niners, and especially Steelers did us in the rest of the way, but we are still in profit and will bounce back this week.
Week 4 NFL Predictions
We have another 8 games and predictions for you in Week 4. It begins with the Thursday night game with Miami facing Cincinnati, then Sunday's games: Oakland traveling to Baltimore, the Cowboys at Niners, the Redskins hosting the Browns, Drew Brees and the Saints finally returning to San Diego, the Titans at Texans, current champions Denver facing Tampa Bay, and closing off with the Monday night game where the Giants try to give the Vikings their first loss.
Oakland Raiders @ Baltimore Ravens Prediction
BET OAKLAND RAIDERS +3.5 AT BODOG. The Baltimore Ravens couldn't be any higher than they are now. Coming into this game at an undefeated 3-0, only the third time in franchise history they've achieved this, they will try to subdue the 2-1 Oakland Raiders. Are they reliable though? Joe Flacco is definitely mixing things up and hitting different targets, throwing to at least 9 distinct receivers in each of the Ravens' wins, but those wins weren't that convincing. They only won those games by a combined 13 points total. Not only that, but the teams they faced are the opposite of elite, with the three possessing an aggregate record of 1-8. The Ravens' offense is also sputtering, having only scored 4 TDs this season so far. Yes, the Ravens D is huge, ranked 2nd in the league (254.3 yrds allowed per game), but the Raiders are ranked 2nd in the league in offense (436 yrds per game). Trends state that Oakland could take it as well, having gone 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Ravens are too inept at home, having gone 2-9-1 ATS in their last 12 games in Baltimore. Look for Derek Carr to emulate last year's performance and steal this one. Take the Oakland Raiders +3.5.
Dallas Cowboys @ San Francisco 49ers Prediction
BET SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS +3 AT SPORTSINTERACTION. Momentum shifts quickly in the NFL. In Week 1, the Dallas Cowboys were devastated by a loss to NFC East rivals, the Giants, but have bounced back and have won their last two. The San Francisco 49ers however, started the season with a big win over NFC West rivals, the Rams, but have faltered the past two weeks. But like I said, momentum shifts quickly in the NFL. Playing at home, look for the 49ers to buckle down and cover this spread. Dallas QB Dak Prescott hasn't thrown an interception yet, but look for the 49er defense to step up and end his run. If Blaine Gabbert doesn't throw a pick himself, the 49ers should take this easily. The Cowboys are a very up and down team, never performing well for numerous weeks in a row. You can see this in their 1-6 ATS after an ATS win record. The Cowboys are also 5-11-1 ATS in their last 17 overall. On the other side though, we have the 49ers performing well at home, going 4-1 ATS in their last 5. Expect a low scoring game, with the home side covering. Take the San Francisco 49ers at +3.
Cleveland Browns @ Washington Redskins Prediction
BET CLEVELAND BROWNS +8 AT BODOG. This would usually be a bad play, as the Cleveland Browns shouldn't deserve any kind of legitimacy, but they showed some life in Week 3. Their pass protection was horrendous though, getting sacked 4 times. They are currently 30th in the league in sacks given up, and 29th in QB hits. No wonder they are already on their 3rd QB this season. With Robert Griffin III and Josh McCown both out, Cody Kessler will get the start again after facing the Dolphins last week. He played a solid game with no errors and will look to build on that. This Browns team has played competitively in all 3 of their first games and could easily have a winning record if not for a few misplays. With the Washington Redskins coming off a big division win against the Giants, and looking ahead to some of the tougher schedule, the Browns might be able to even take this one outright. The Redskins are also 1-4 ATS in their last 5 at home and 6-17 ATS in their last 23 coming off an ATS win. They are also 1-7 ATS as a favorite in the last 3 seasons. Take the Cleveland Browns +8.
New Orleans Saints @ San Diego Chargers Prediction
BET SAN DIEGO CHARGERS -3.5 AT BET365. In a battle of two last place teams, the 0-3 New Orleans Saints travel to San Diego. After just losing to the Atlanta Hawks on Monday, they will be playing on short rest. But the big story will be Drew Brees' return to San Diego. The last time he played there, he was on a pre-Philip Rivers Chargers team, and sustained an injury which prompted Chargers management to get rid of him and have him eventually replaced with mainstay Rivers. Going by the emotion of it, New Orleans would be the play. But they haven't shown anything to merit a play. They are ranked last in the league in rush defense, allowing an average of 149.3 yards per game, compared to the Chargers' 81.7. This makes San Diego, usually only a pass threat, a pass and rush threat. This is a team that covers, having gone 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 coming off an ATS loss, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 coming off a game where they scored at least 350 yards, and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 coming off a straight up loss. Hearts and emotions say Brees comes into San Diego and leads his team to a win, but he's already playing extremely well as a passer. It is the defense that is in trouble. So stay away from your heart, and go with your head. Take the San Diego Chargers at -3.5.
Tennessee Titans @ Houston Texans Prediction
BET TENNESSEE TITANS +5 AT SPORTSINTERACTION. The top two teams in the AFC South face off in Houston on Sunday, but the 2-1 Houston Texans won't be with three-time Defensive Player of the Year defensive end J.J. Watt due to injury. Missing the preseason, but returning in time for the regular season, Watt failed to impress and was placed on injury reserve. Even with Watt's meager performances, the Texans are still tied for 3rd place in sacks in the league, with 10, and first in passing yards allowed, with 151.3. The Tennessee Titans are already stumbling offensively, with QB Marcus Mariota only throwing for 214 yards for no TDs and 2 INTs in last week's loss to the Raiders. They are ranked 24th in passing yards with 229.3 per game. This is an interesting matchup though, as all of the Texans strengths are already weaknesses for the Titans, so do not make much of a difference. The key in this game will be DeMarco Murray. Netting 241 yards on 41 attempts, the Titans as a whole are running 5.1 yards per rush on average. This is the Texans weak spot, as they are an elite pass rush team, but can't stop the run, letting an average of 4.8 yards per run. The road team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these two teams, and this looks like a fishy enough line to covers again. Take the Tennessee Titans +5.
Denver Broncos @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers Prediction
BET TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS +3.5 AT SPORTSINTERACTION. The 3-0 defending champions are small favorites as they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Florida on Sunday afternoon. QB Trevor Siemian has been great, throwing for four TD passes in last week's game against the Bengals. The defense came up big in that game as well, sacking Andy Dalton 4 times. On paper, the Denver Broncos should dominate this game, as their passing game is their forte, and a major weakness for the Bucs, who are allowing 8.2 passing yards per throw and 273.3 passing yards per game. They are actually allowing the most points per game at 33.7. Tampa Bay isn't a terrible team though, and I see Tampa Bay more likely to go 1-3 over Denver going 4-0. They should have won their game last week against the Rams, and will be fired up to avenge that loss. Jameis Winston threw a career high 405 yards last week in their loss, so this team's offense isn't the problem. The trends favor TB also, as the Broncos are 0-3-2 ATS in the last 5 meetings and the underdog is 3-0-2 ATS in the last 5 meetings between the two teams. Look for a shootout in Tampa, with the Bucs either covering or just edging out the champions. Take the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +3.5
Miami Dolphins @ Cincinnati Bengals Prediction
BET CINCINNATI BENGALS -7 AT SPORTSINTERACTION. The Cincinnati Bengals come into this game at 1-2, the first time they've gone below .500 since 2014, and are poised to get back to an even record against the likewise 1-2 Miami Dolphins. The Bengals O-Line needs to be strong in this, as QB Andy Dalton got sacked 4 times in their Week 3 loss to the title-holding Broncos. This has them tied for last with the Panthers with 12 sacks allowed in their first 3 games. The run seems to be the key for the Dolphins, rushing for 115 yards in their only win, but failing get above 70 yards on the run in their first two games. Look for the Bengals to lock down their rush defense and immediately leave Miami without options. They are ranked 25th in rushing in the league, so this should be no hard feat. Linebacker Vontaze Burfict might also be making his return for the Bengals after serving a suspension, and could have a positive impact. The penalties are what killed this team last week, but look for a more effective and disciplined defense. With a depleted offensive line, Tannehill will be vulnerable to elite defensive tackles like Geno Atkins. While recent matchups favor the Dolphins, let's not forget that the Dolphins are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games, and 6-18 ATS in their last 24. They barely beat the Browns last week, and until they can show more potential, Tannehill and the Dolphins don't have my confidence. Take the Cincinnati Bengals -7.
New York Giants @ Minnesota Vikings Prediction
BET MINNESOTA VIKINGS -4.5 AT BODOG. Monday Night Football is looking to be exciting this week. Week 3 closes out with the Minnesota Vikings hosting another primetime game, this time against the lucky to be 2-1 New York Giants. There is really only one way to go in this game. The Vikings haven't lost a hoe game in over 8 months. They are 3-0 after defeating potentially top teams in Green Bay and Carolina. With a QB who hastily joined the team after the preseason already ended, and after losing elite running back Adrian Peterson, the Vikings have been winning games with defense. They sacked speedy Cam Newton 8 times in their win over the Panthers last week, and lead the league in sacks with 15. Their offense is shaky, as they are only averaging 51 rushing yards per game, but Bradford could let the ball loose a bit more this week as the Giants are allowing a dismal 262.3 passing yards per game. The trends overwhelmingly favor the Vikings, as the favorite is 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings between these two teams. They are also 27-9 ATS in the last 3 seasons, and 21-8 ATS at home in their last 29. This game could be high scoring, and that makes it easier for Minnesota to covers. Take the Minnesota Vikings at -4.5.
