Complete NFL Week 4 Betting Guide & Predictions

Posted by Aaron . on July 14, 2016 in

Let’s see. When Week 4 rolls around, the leaves will be turning from green to that majestic red, yellow and brown that means that crisp, cool nights are on the way — what coaches like to call “good hittin’ weather.” We’ll start to see some of the pretenders in the NFL starting to fade, and some others who had gotten off to a slow start may start shaking off the early NFL odds losses.

Here are the matchups that I would consider getting some action on now before the lines shift, because I think there are some factors that the o oddsmakers (and a lot of bettors) are missing, or underestimating.

Jaguars vs. Colts

First of all, stay away from the Colts-Jags game. Why? It’s in London. Teams go over there, they turn into tourists. Jacksonville is not as terrible as they used to be, thanks to a burgeoning defense, and the Colts still don’t know what they’re going to get when Andrew Luck returns to the field. This far out, I just have no handle on this. You might think, sure, the Colts will win by a touchdown easily, but strange things happen in situations like this.

Cleveland at Washington

The return of RGIII to the home field of the team that wrung him out like a washcloth that first season, made him play in his first postseason game until his knee exploded will feature all kinds of hype. I’m a huge fan of the RGIII revival (full disclosure), and I think his athleticism and focus on improvement will galvanize a Browns team that has a solid defense but has had a pu pu platter at the quarterback position. I like Cleveland to cover.

Denver at Tampa Bay

Hello? Vegas? Don’t you guys know that the Broncos are going to be starting MARK SANCHEZ at quarterback this year? When he’s not turning the ball over, he’s sailing it over receivers’ heads on third-and-long. Sure, the Denver defense will still be stout, but Jameis Winston made some big strides in his rookie campaign and developed a lot of confidence. Plus — that Buccaneer defense isn’t bad. I like Tampa Bay to win (and cover).

Dallas at San Francisco

Tony Romo vs Blaine Gabbert? And the Niners are only three-point underdogs? Did you see the Cowboys defense keep the team in games, even though the only people Jerry Jones could find to back up Tony Romo were Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel? The Cowboys might win this by 30, which means I definitely like Dallas to win (and cover).
