Week 3 was one of the most profitable NFL weeks in recent memory as multiple upsets happened including the Lions, Texans, and Saints all won on the road as underdogs. Week 4 is going to be much more difficult as there are multiple divisional matchups with low spreads.
To help you along the way, here are my ten best bets for Week 4 of the 2019 season:
One of the most critical games of Week 4 is an AFC North matchup between the Ravens and the Browns. Cleveland needs to win this matchup to avoid falling 2.5 games behind Baltimore for the division lead. But with the Browns missing much of their secondary, take the Ravens to win and cover.
One of the strangest lines of the weeks is the Kansas City Chiefs being favored by only six points over the Lions in Detroit. With this game being Patrick Mahomes' first career game in a dome, look for fireworks from the Kansas City as they cover the spread quickly in Week 4.
Panthers' quarterback Kyle Allen will make his third start in replacement of Cam Newton against the Texans. This matchup features two of the best defenses in the NFL, and this will likely turn into a low-scoring contest, as Allen probably won't have the same type of success on the road. Take the under.
For the first time this season, the New York Giants are favored in a football game. But should we trust them to cover the spread? These two teams aren't particularly good and star running back Saquon Barkley will miss this contest. Give me the Redskins and the points.
The two undefeated teams in the AFC East will face off in Week 4 as the Bills will host the Patriots. While Buffalo has one of the best defenses in the NFL, New England's is better. They've also had a lot of success in Buffalo as of late, covering the spread in five straight contests. Take the Patriots to cover.
The Seahawks are 5-point favorites over the Cardinals at Arizona in Week 4. But at SugarHouse, they offer alternative lines on each matchup. This week, one of my favorite bets is taking Seattle -9 at +155. Seattle has too much talent on offense and should be able to move the ball easily against the Cardinals' soft defense.
After a tough loss in Week 3, the Falcons will return home to take on the Titans. Atlanta is the better team here and should have no problem winning this game. I like the Falcons to cover the spread, but for the total to go under 45.5. Combing those two bets will get you odds of +260.
Coming off an impressive road win on Monday Night Football, the Bears will host the Vikings in Week 4. However, this could be a difficult matchup for Chicago at home as Minnesota is one of the most balanced teams in the NFL. With the Bears coming off a short week, I like the Vikings to pull off the upset in Chicago. Take the Vikings at +120.
While the Rams haven't looked like the same powerhouse we saw in 2018, they are still 3-0 and one of the best teams in the NFL. In Week 4, they will face Tampa Bay, which lost to Daniel Jones in his first start. Los Angeles should have no problem covering the 10-point spread.
When is the last time the Saints have been an underdog at home, especially in primetime? Despite not having Drew Brees, the Saints were able to beat the Seahawks in Seattle in Week 3. Dallas is one of the best teams in the league, but expect New Orleans to find a way to win at home on Sunday Night Football.
