Picks against the spread for Week 4 NFL games
The 2018 NFL season is officially in full swing San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt , which means regular season betting is back. I’m back for another year of picks in the Westgate SuperContest. SB Nation’s partners over at Odds Shark are sponsoring my entry again. The contest requires selecting 5 games each week and picking them against the spread. After a disastrous 0-5 Week 2, I bounced back with a 4-1 performance, and now sit at 8-6-1 for the season. I was 11-5 on my overall picks against the spread, which were helped by taking some underdogs.This week, I’ve decided to take the points with the San Francisco 49ers. After losing Jimmy Garoppolo, the 49ers dropped from expected 4.5 point underdogs to the Los Angeles Chargers to actual 10.5 point underdogs. In some places you can get 11.5, although for the SuperContest, I could only get 10. I am rolling the dice on Matt Breida being available for the game, as I think that is slightly pertinent to the proceedings. However, I think this offense can still do enough against an awful Chargers defense that this remains competitive. The 49ers defense has its share of holes, particularly with Richard Sherman and Jaquiski Tartt sidelined San Francisco 49ers Hats , but I still think the team can stay in this. Feel free to laugh when this blows up in my face.Here are my five SuperContest picks for Week 4.COWBOYS (-3) over LionsPACKERS (-9.5) over BillsEagles (-4) over TITANS49ers (+10) over CHARGERSRavens (+3) over STEELERSThe Lions are getting a lot of love, but I think their win over the Patriots is leading to a bit of an overreaction. The Cowboys offense is a mess, but I think we see them get it done. The Packers are coming off a tough loss to Washington, but Aaron Rodgers is 23-11 against the spread coming off a loss, and 9-5 ATS when favored by more than a touchdown in this spot. I’ll take my chances.The 49ers are one of three road teams. Philadelphia gets Alshon Jeffery back, while Marcus Mariota remains shaky at this point. And I think people are thinking Pittsburgh is better than they are following that win over Tampa Bay. Baltimore is proving a live one, so I’m taking the points with the Ravens.I went 11-5 overall in Week 3. Here are all my picks for Week 4:RAMS vs. Vikings (+7): Vikings — PUSHPATRIOTS vs. Dolphins (+6.5): PatriotsCOLTS vs. Texans (+1): TexansFALCONS vs. Bengals (+5): BengalsPACKERS vs. Bills (+9.5): PackersCOWBOYS vs. Lions (+3): CowboysJAGUARS vs. Jets (+7.5): JaguarsBEARS vs. Buccaneers (+3): BearsTITANS vs. Eagles (-4): EaglesCARDINALS vs. Seahawks (-3): CardinalsRAIDERS vs. Browns (+2.5): RaidersCHARGERS vs. 49ers (+10): 49ersGIANTS vs. Saints (-3.5): SaintsSTEELERS vs. Ravens (+3): RavensBRONCOS vs. Chiefs (-5): BroncosRavens-Bengals game thread to kick off Week 2 It’s time for some Week 2 football! The Cincinnati Bengals host the Baltimore Ravens to get the second week of the season underway. The game kicks off at 5:20 p.m. PT on NBC, with Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth in the booth, and Michele Tafoya on the sideline. Both teams won their opener, making this a modestly important Week 2 matchup of NFC North rivals. The Ravens pounded the Buffalo Bills, while the Bengals held off the Indianapolis Colts.The Ravens opened as a three-point favorite for this game San Francisco 49ers Womens Hoodie , but the line has narrowed down, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. You can find the line either -1 for the Ravens, a pick ‘em, or -1 for the Bengals. This morning, I picked the Bengals, and I’m sticking with it. 59 percent of the online money is on the Ravens, according to OddsShark, and 78 percent of the money at William Hill establishments is on the Ravens. I think people are putting too much into their win over an awful Bills team.Ravens vs. Bengals, SNFTime: 5:20 p.m. PTLocation: Lincoln Financial FieldChannel: NFL NetworkOdds: -1 for either side
