NFL Week 4 is upon us. With many great matchups scheduled this week, including a goat returning to the house he built. Division rivals will face off, and many teams hope to improve their playoff chances after this week.
Here is a breakdown of the Week 4 matchups, including the point spread for each game per covers.com.
Jaguars at Bengals (-6)
The Bengals are coming off a dominating performance of long-time rival Pittsburgh. The Jaguars, on the other hand, are looking for their first win of the season, coming up short in their first three attempts. The Bengals are 2-1 against the spread (ATS) this season.
Texans at Bills (-16.5)
The Bills are heavy favorites as they welcome the Texans to Buffalo on Sunday. The Bills are 1-1 at home and are 2-1 ATS. The Texans are down to their third-string QB this season, and the team’s chances of losing less than 17 are not promising.
Chiefs (-6.5) at Eagles
The underachieving Chiefs are 6.5 point favorites as they travel to Philadelphia to take on an Eagles team who was embarrassed on Monday night. While the Chiefs are favored, the team has yet to cover the spread in each of its first three games this season.
Titans (-6.5) at Jets
The Titans not being a larger favorite here is a bit of a surprise. The Jets look like a team in a complete rebuild that won’t come easy for. The Titans are 2-1 ATS and have won their lone road game this season. This matchup is one that bettors should pay close attention to.
Lions at Bears (-3)
The Lions and the Bears are two teams still looking for an identity. The Lions are coming off a gut-wrenching loss in Week 3, and the Bears are unsure who will be their QB this week. The spread for this one shouldn’t move any. This could be a game that bettors may want to avoid.
Panthers at Cowboys (-5)
The Cowboys look to be the early favorites to take home the dumpster fire known as the NFC East. However, this week, the media and bettors don’t see the undefeated Panthers as a threat to Dallas boys. The spread has already gone up 2.5 points in favor of Dallas.
Browns (-2) at Vikings
The Browns are favorites as they hit the road this week to take on the Minnesota Vikings. Both teams are 2-1 ATS this season, and neither team has yet to win a game on the road. Many games this week have close point spreads, and this is another matchup that bettors should be wary of.
Washington Football Team (-1.5) at Falcons
By Sunday, this game could quickly become a pick em’. The Washington Football Team sits as the current favorites but has been 0-3 this season ATS. The Football Team is a part of a common theme in the young season as another team to have yet to win a road game. The Falcons, on the other hand, loss their lone home game this season.
Cardinals at Rams (-4.5)
Fans are expecting offensive fireworks between these two NFC West rivals on Sunday. The battle of two undefeated teams will decide who sits on the throne in the NFC West after Week 4. Who will take their first loss Sunday? The Rams spread has declined 2.5 points since becoming available.
Seahawks at 49ers (-2.5)
The 49ers were 37 seconds away from being undefeated heading into Week 4. That was until they gave the ball back to Aaron Rodgers and the rest is history. San Francisco is 2-1 ATS this season but has lost their lone home game this season. The Seahawks look to spoil another home celebration for the 49ers this week.
Ravens at Broncos (-1)
When the spread for this game was first announced, the Ravens were favored by one. Those odds have flipped over to the Broncos as they welcome Baltimore to Denver. The Broncos are a perfect 3-0 ATS, and if you’re feeling lucky, hammer down those undefeated Broncos.
Steelers at Packers (-6.5)
The Green Bay Packers have looked like a completely different team since their Week One disaster against the Saints. They welcome a Steelers team this week which looks to be on the decline after taking the AFC North last season. 6.5 points maybe a little too high for bettors who believe the Steelers could turn this around, but this could be the perfect line with the Packers clicking on offense.
Buccaneers (-7) at Patriots
We’ve all watched the Sunday Night Football promo with Adele singing in the background at least 50 times. The GOAT Tin Brady returns home with vengeance on his mind when the reigning Super Bowl champs take on Bill and the Patriots. The Bucs are 1-2 ATS, which could scare a few away from this one.
Raiders at Chargers (-3.5)
The undefeated Raiders are surprising underdogs in a game against AFC West rival the Los Angeles Chargers. This season, the Chargers lone loss was against the Chiefs, which isn’t a bad loss to have. The spread has moved a half-point in favor of the Chargers. Los Angeles is 2-1 ATS and will be looking for their first home win this season.
