NFL Week 4 Betting Picks
Injuries have taken a toll on a few contenders after two weeks. Could that shake up some of the expectations going forward? As Week 3 plays out and we get more answers from surprise teams, it’s not too early to take a first look at some of the Week 4 lines.
Let’s take a look at the early Week 4 odds and which bets to place early.
Baltimore Ravens Moneyline (-120) vs. Cleveland Browns
The Browns have a solid defense, but they just didn’t look the part against the Steelers in Week 2. Pittsburgh’s offense gave Deshaun Watson every opportunity to win the game at home, and he just couldn’t do it.
With Nick Chubb out, the state of the offense is concerning. If the Browns get into a dogfight with an underwhelming Titans offense this week, it’s only going to continue to instill the idea that Watson isn’t ready to become the player he once was.
With the Ravens staring down what should be a comfortable win over the Colts, we could certainly see this line shift a little more in the Ravens’ direction. Baltimore is favored by 1.5 points, so there’s value on both the spread and the moneyline before the odds shift.
Minnesota Vikings (-3) vs. Carolina Panthers
The Vikings didn’t look so bad in their Week 2 loss to the Eagles. The passing game was terrific, and the pass defense wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been. There were problems, including a brutal run defense and a lack of a running game. Minnesota still looks like it’s in a different class than Carolina.
The Panthers have no intimidating weapons around Bryce Young, who isn’t certain to return in time for this game, and that’s been a bigger issue than any of Young’s poor decisions. The running game hasn’t been enough to give the offense an identity. While the Panthers’ defense has looked solid under Ejiro Evero, a secondary missing Jaycee Horn could be in for a long day against Justin Jefferson.
If the Vikings assert themselves against the Chargers this week and remind oddsmakers that their offense is dangerous, this line should stretch to four or five points – even on the road.
Houston Texans (+4.5) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers have an excellent pass-rush. So far, that’s about it. Kenny Pickett has not made the strides many expected, and Brock Purdy showed in Week 1 that there are real concerns with Pittsburgh’s cornerback room. Could this be a game where the Texans have a quarterback advantage?
C.J. Stroud has looked pretty solid early in his career, and at a certain point that’s going to translate to competitive games at the very least. If Pickett doesn’t look the part against the Raiders in Las Vegas and the Steelers continue to play close games, we might see this line tighten closer to a field goal – even if the Texans come up short in Week 3.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3.5) vs. New Orleans Saints
Are you a believer in the Buccaneers yet? Oddsmakers aren’t quite yet. Tampa is close to a touchdown underdog at home against the Eagles and a little more than a field goal underdog against the Saints in Week 4. So far, it doesn’t look like that kind of separation between the Saints and Bucs is there.
New Orleans’ offense just hasn’t looked good enough through two weeks, aside from one quarter in a game against the sluggish Panthers. They’ve played solid defenses, but it’s hard to be sold on this unit. A tough day against the Packers could pour some cold water on the Saints.
On the other side, the Bucs don’t have much to lose against the Eagles. If they keep the game competitive at home against a Philadelphia team that hasn’t looked as dominant as last season, we might see this line narrow to less than a field goal. If Baker Mayfield’s strong start isn’t a total fluke, Tampa can absolutely win a game in New Orleans.
