Week 4 NFL Betting Lines

Week 4 NFL Betting Lines

The quarter pole of the 2015 NFL season is already here. And so are bye weeks. And so are games played in London (for some idiotic reason). While the dominant Patriots and surprisingly competitive Titans sip fruity drinks on the beach, the remaining 30 teams will get down to business in Week 4. Five home favorites lost in Week 3, while the Patriots and Seahawks easily covered double-digit spreads at home. This week, oddsmakers have installed seven teams as touchdown or more favorites, including the 0-3 ATS Colts giving 10 points to the visiting Jaguars. Also, the red hot Packers are giving 9.5 points to the downward spiraling 49ers, who have been outscored 90-25 in the last two games. Here’s a peek at the early betting lines for Week 4 of the 2015 NFL season.

NY Jets vs Dolphins +1.5 – The Jets faceplanted at home to Chip Kelly’s science experiment known as the Philadelphia Eagles, while the perpetually lifeless Dolphins were hammered by the Bills. Which quarterback named Ryan can deliver more turnovers, Fitzpatrick or Tannehill? These teams deserve a 9:30am kickoff (U.S. time) in jolly ol’ England. NY is 5-1 ATS in its last six overall. The Fish are 1-7 ATS in their last eight. This has a 9-5 final written all over it.

Oakland at Chicago +3 – Hold on a second. The Raiders are not only 2-1, but also favored on the road? In what parallel universe is this a reality? The end is definitely nigh. Even though Oakland has looked decent through three games, this line has more to do with the Jimmy Clausen led Bears, who were blanked 23-0 in Seattle last Sunday. Chicago is 1-4 ATS in its last five at Soldier Field. Da Raiders are 1-3-1 ATS in the last five meetings in the series.

Kansas City at Cincinnati -3.5 – The Chiefs’ reward for back-to-back crushing defeats to Denver and Green Bay is a date with the 3-0 Bengals. The supposedly stout KC defense has been smacked around by Peyton Manning and Aaron Rodgers. The good news for them is Andy Dalton isn’t in the same class, despite his 8/1 touchdown-interception ratio. Chiefs are 3-6 ATS in their last nine matchups. Cincy is 14-4-1 ATS in its last 19 home tilts.

St. Louis at Arizona -6.5 – The Cardinals are steamrolling opponents through three weeks, outscoring them 126-49. Carson Palmer, Larry Fitzgerald, and Chris Johnson are playing like they’re five years younger, and the opportunistic defense has already notched seven interceptions. On the other hand, the Rams are once again underachieving, or maybe they just aren’t very good. Heralded rookie running back Todd Gurley’s debut resulted in 6 carries for 9 yards. And their so-called “elite” defense isn’t getting the job done. Arizona is 8-1 ATS in its last nine home games.

Dallas at New Orleans -3.5 – Obviously Vegas wasn’t impressed with Brandon Weeden and the leaky Cowboys defense in their collapse against Atlanta. Because the Saints are downright dreadful. Even if Drew Brees suits up, it’s not like the offense is doing much of anything. And the defense is pathetic even for Rob Ryan. Dallas is 5-0 ATS in its last five road outings. Saints are 0-5 ATS in their last five at home. This should be a pick-em.
