Sports Betting Football - NFL Week 4 Picks

4-3 so far this year betting the NFL... A few games that I like this week are:

Denver Broncos -9½ (-105) over Kansas City Chiefs - See my last post for reasons.

Minnesota Vikings +3 (EVEN) over Tennessee Titans

Minny finally had their first win last week, and I expect them to keep them coming. This will be the hardest team that Tennessee has faced this year.

Philadelphia Eagles -3 (-115) over Chicago Bears

Da Bears upset Indy in week 1, then lost their last 2. They should lose this one as well to a very tough Philly team with or without Brian Westbrook.

Atlanta Falcons +7 (-120) over Carolina Panthers

Atlanta has value here. They aren't getting much respect because they're 2 wins have come against KC and Detriot, but a full TD is too many points.

NFL Week 4 Sports Betting (and Fantasy Football) - Early thoughts...

After a pretty crazy weekend behind me, I’m now back and settled in the rest of the NFL season. If you follow my picks, I don’t plan on taking any weekends off of the remainder of the year. I did miss a few good bets last weekend, but the good news is there are good bets every week :O)

A couple of early thoughts…

Kansas City is bad. I mean really bad. They lost by more than 9 to both Oakland and Atlanta, and those aren’t very strong teams. I know that 9 is a lot of points, but I expect to have some action on Denver this week.

Playing against Kansas City might also be a good move for your fantasy football team. Last week I started Atlanta’s defense in my big money league and they had 3 interceptions and a TD. This week, I’ve already dropped the Falcons D in favor of the Broncos. Yeah, KC is that bad.

The St. Louis Rams aren’t very good either, but I have less confidence giving 8 or more points to a Buffalo Bills team that barely beat Oakland. I’ll probably lay off that game.

That’s all for now…

Good Luck.
