SuperContest: Arizona Top Week 4 Pick

The unbeaten Arizona Cardinals are not only 3-0 straight-up this season but also a perfect 3-0 against the spread.


UNDER 8-1 in Last 9 Between KC and Cin

Up until this season, the Cincinnati Bengals were rarely mentioned in the same category of upper echelon NFL teams. But after a 3-0 SU and ATS start to the 2015 campaign, Andy Dalton and company are turning some heads.

The Bengals have rattled off wins over Oakland, San Diego, and division rival Baltimore heading into Week 4’s meeting with the Kansas City Chiefs while averaging 418 total offensive yards per game – the second highest in the league.

The friendly confines of Paul Brown Stadium have resulted in big profits for Bengals backers as of late. In their last 19 home games, Cincy is 14-4-1 ATS and 15-3-1 SU.

Over is at 6-0 in Raiders Last Six Games

Don’t look now, but the Oakland Raiders are 2-1 after three weeks of play and are seemingly full of confidence ahead of Week 4’s tilt with the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.

One reason the Raiders can feel good about themselves stems from their 27-20 win over the Browns in Ohio on Sunday. Oakland effectively ended a road losing streak that stretched back to November of 2013 while picking up back to back wins for the first time since October, 2012.

The Bears (0-3 SU, ATS) failed to register a single point in a dispirited 26-20 loss to the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Week 3. John Fox’s squad is allowing an ugly 35 points per game to opposing offenses so far while mustering up a mere 15.3 of their own.

Starting quarterback Jay Cutler was sidelined in the losing effort due to a strained hamstring, meaning Jimmy Clausen was forced to fill in under center. Cutler’s return date is up in the air, which could force Clausen to start once again versus Oakland. 

The Notre Dame product fell to 1-11 lifetime in a starter in the loss.

Falcons at 3-0 SU and ATS This Season

The Atlanta Falcons will attempt their fourth cover in a row opposite the Houston Texans in Week 4 NFL action at the Georgia Dome Sunday.

Atlanta had no issue covering the closing -1 spread on Sunday in the form of a 39-28 win over the Tony Romo-less Dallas Cowboys, while Houston topped the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19-9 and cashed -6 tickets in the process.

Through three weeks, both teams are sitting with identical 1-2 Over/Under records. Books opened the total for the clash at 46.5.

Ryan Mallett has gotten the job done since relieving Brian Hoyer as the starting quarterback, notching his second career NFL victory on Sunday while throwing for one touchdown and 228 yards.

Atlanta’s offense has been a well-oiled machine through the opening three weeks of the season. The Falcons rank third in total yards (411.7), second in passing yards (305.3) and fourth in points scored (29.7).

UFC 192: Cormier Big Fave vs Gustafsson

UFC 192 will see Daniel Cormier defend his light heavyweight title against Alexander Gustafsson, with DC as a sizable -340 favorite to retain the strap according to 5Dimes.

“Jon Jones' run notwithstanding, historically, the 205-lbs. belt has been a very difficult one to defend. So on the surface, it may seem that the price on Cormier is inflated here,” says UFC commentator Jon Anik. “But I don't necessarily see it that way.”


Arizona State 0-5 ATS in Their Past Five

The Arizona State Sun Devils have proven to be a money pit so far this season as they have gone 0-4 against the spread this season and 0-5 ATS in their past five. Arizona State will look change that trend when they visit the UCLA Bruins Saturday.

The Sun Devils are coming off an embarrassing 42-14 loss at the hands of USC, a game that saw Arizona State’s defense allow 19.7 yards per catch and five receiving touchdowns. 

UCLA is coming off back-to-back wins against opponents ranked inside the top 25, with a dominant 56-30 win over Arizona last week. Freshman quarterback Josh Rosen continues to be inconsistent but did throw two touchdowns and no interceptions against Arizona.

Stanford 6-1 SU, ATS in Their Past Seven

After opening the season with a painful loss against Northwestern, Stanford has gone back to their winning ways and are back to old habits with a 6-1 SU and ATS record in their past seven. The Cardinals will try to continue their dominance when they host the high-powered Arizona Wildcats Saturday.

With quarterback Kevin Hogan nursing an injured ankle, Stanford has been leaning on running back Christian McCaffery. The sophomore rusher has averaged 5.1 yards per carry and 20.1 yards receiving on the season.

The legend of Anu Soloman continues to grow in Arizona as the quarterback has thrown for 11 touchdowns and no interceptions so far this season. However, the sophomore signal caller left last week's loss to UCLA in the second quarter after suffering an injury.

Clemson 11-0 SU in its Last 11 at Home

Clemson have been unbeatable at home going 11-0 SU and 8-3 ATS in their past 11 contests at Memorial Stadium. The Tigers will have a difficult task extending that streak when they host the Notre Dame Fighting Irish Saturday.

Though the offense may sport some big names, it was Clemson’s defense that proved dominant last week as they registered five sacks and allowed a mere 19 rushing yards.

Notre Dame has been ridiculously resilient this season after suffering a staggering amount of injuries. The Irish put up 62 points last week, which was the most points the squad has scored since a 62-0 win over Rutgers in 1996.
