Week 4 NFL Betting Trends

The upsets came fast and furious in Week 3, with nine underdogs winning outright and online sportsbooks enjoying a huge payday as dogs went 11-5 ATS.

It was capped on Monday night with the controversial TD/INT that cost the Packers a victory and cost Green Bay bettors a payday.

It was estimated that the referee decision – and resulting swing in the point spread results - resulted in $1 billion globally changing hands on that final play. A Packer cover at -3 if the score stayed 12-7 turned into a Seattle win (including moneyline bets) at 14-12.

So after three straight weeks of crazy results and smiling bookies, can Week 4 swing back to the players? There are some big point spreads and some big trends, starting on Thursday when the Ravens lay two TDs at home to a team they have beaten eight straight.

And it ends Monday with the Dallas Cowboys hosting the Chicago Bears. Dallas bettors know that their team has been no moneymaker on MNF, losing six of its past seven against the spread. [ Monday Night betting and poker specials – check out Sportsbook.ag and follow us on Twitter for updates ]
