- Dolphins vs. Patriots spread betting and tips
- Ravens vs. Steelers winner tips, spread odds
- NFL Week 4 parlay tips
Minnesota Vikings vs. L.A. Rams (-6.5) O/U 49.5
The Vikings were embarrassed at home in their last game losing to the Buffalo Bills 27-6. They had the same number of yards as the Bills, but they did not run the ball to the tune of only 14 rushing yards and were outscored 27-0 in the first half. They have a tall task facing a 3-0 Rams’ team that has allowed the fewest points per game and has scored the third most per game. Take the Rams in this one in La La Land.
Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts (-1.5) O/U 47
The Texans are 0-3, but all three of their games have been close. At least their defense will be facing a Colts’ offense that only ranks 23rd in the league in passing yards per game and 29th in rushing yards per game. The road team is 5-1-2 ATS in the last eight games between these teams and look for that trend to continue, as Houston will win and cover.
Detroit Lions vs. Dallas Cowboys (-3) 43.5
After two poor games to start the season the Lions got into the win column in their last game with an impressive 26-10 win over the New England Patriots. They held the Pats to only 209 total yards and in this game face a Dallas team that is 1-2 and whose offense has not scored over 13 points in any of their three games. Hate to take them, but think Ezekiel Elliot will have a big game facing Detroit and their run defense that ranks dead last in the league. The Cowboys will win and cover at home.
Buffalo Bills vs. Green Bay Packers (-10) O/U 45.5
The Bills were bad in their first two games and then crushed the Vikings in Minnesota in their last game. They not face the Packers, who are 1-1-1 and lost pretty badly in their last game against the Washington Redskins. Aaron Rodgers will come up big in this game and even giving double-digits the Packers will win and cover in this non-conference game.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Chicago Bears (-3) O/U 46.5
The Bucs lost their first game of the season in their last game. They have lit up the scoreboard with Ryan Fitzpatrick, but with Jameis Winston back from suspension a starter has not been named. The 2-1 Bears have a solid defense and this game is all about them and their defense against Tampa Bay and their dynamic offense. Take the defense in this one, as Chicago will win and cover.
New York Jets vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (-7.5) O/U 38.5
The Jets have lost two in a row since winning their season opener where rookie QB Sam Darnold has made rookie mistakes. The Jags have a great defense and they only gave up nine points in their last game, but they lost. The defense of Jacksonville will shut down the Jets and the Jags will get the win and cover.
Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots (-7) 47.5
The Dolphins are 3-0 and the Patriots are 1-2 and have lost two games in a row. New England was held to 209 total yards in their last game where they only scored 10 points. However, the Patriots have covered in their last six home games facing the Dolphins and that betting trend will continue in this AFC East matchup.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Atlanta Falcons (-5) O/U 51
The Bengals lost their first game of the season in their last game and face the Falcons, who gave up 43 points in their last game in a 43-37 OT shootout loss to the Saints. At home Matt Ryan and the Falcons will get it done getting to .500 with a win and covering the spread.
Philadelphia Eagles (+4) vs. Tennessee Titans O/U 41
The Eagles have Carson Wentz back and he was solid in his debut last week. The Titans lost 9-6 to the Jacksonville Jaguars in their last game and their top two quarterbacks are banged up. Yeah, easy call in this one taking the Eagles to win and cover.
Seattle Seahawks (-3) vs. Arizona Cardinals O/U 38.5
The Seahawks got their first win of the season in their last game and are road favorites facing the 0-3 Cardinals. Touted rookie Josh Rosen makes his first career start in this game taking over an anemic Arizona offense that ranks dead last in the NFL averaging 6.7 points per game. Going out there on this one, as I think Rosen will have a good debut and the Cardinals will at least cover the spread.

Cleveland Browns vs. Oakland Raiders (-2.5) O/U 45
The Browns got their first win in forever in their last game behind rookie QB Baker Mayfield, who gets the start in this game. The Raiders have looked great in the first half, but have been killed in the second half of all three of their games, which have all been losses. Mayfield mania begins in Cleveland and the Browns will cover in this one.
New Orleans Saints (-3.5) vs. New York Giants O/U 50
The Saints are coming off a 43-37 overtime win over the Falcons in their last game and are in the Big Apple to take on a Giants team that won their first game of the season in their last game. Drew Brees will light up the G-Men and the Saints will win and cover in the Big Apple.
San Francisco 49ers vs. L.A. Chargers (-10.5) O/U 46.5
The 49ers lost their last game as well as quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the rest of the season. C.J. Beathard takes over, but San Francisco also has big issues on defense ranking 27th in the league in opponents’ points allowed. The Chargers have lost twice, those losses came against the L.A. Rams and Kansas City Chiefs. The 49ers will show grit in this game and while they may not win they will cover the double-digit spread.
Baltimore Ravens vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (-3) O/U 51
The Ravens are sitting at 2-1 and rank fifth in the league in both points per game and opponents’ points per game. However, they lost their only road game this season and face the Steelers, who got their first win of the season in their last game. Take Pittsburgh to win and cover in this AFC North battle.
Kansas City Chiefs (-5) vs. Denver Broncos O/U 56
The Chiefs are 3-0 and have the highest scoring team in the league behind the solid play of Patrick Mahomes. The KC defnese has not been good, ranking 30th in opponents’ points per game, but the offense has carried the load. The Broncos lost their first game of the season in their last game and their secondary has really struggled, which is not good with the Chiefs in town. Kansas City will show off their dynamic offense once again on Monday night and the Chiefs will win and cover in a high-scoring affair.
