NFL Betting: Week 4 Opening Lines

One of the biggest surprises early on in NFL betting is how wide open the AFC now appears to be. The Buffalo Bills are the conference’s only 3-0 team, with nine teams trailing close behind at 2-1.

Two of those 2-1 teams will meet for NBC’s Sunday Night Football when the Baltimore Ravens host the New York Jets. Baltimore is coming off of a blowout win over St. Louis last week, while New York had a disappointing loss to the Oakland Raiders.

Betting line favors Chargers vs Dolphins

San Diego gets another big point spread to cover against another winless team in Week 4, after barely beating KC last Sunday.

The Chargers' history of winning as a big favorite is spotty as they seldom cover big spreads and often lose straight up (they are 6-4 SU in the past 10 as double-digit chalk).

The teams have met eight times since 1995 and the Dolphins have won seven times (6-2 ATS) but the real money for bettors has been the total - all 8 meetings have gone UNDER the total.

Miami is hungry to win after starting the season 0-3.

Week 4 odds - Falcons vs. Seahawks

Atlanta couldn't run the ball against Tampa Bay and they face another stout run-stop unit as they visit Seattle in Week 4 action.

The Falcons will be favored against a Seahawks team that upset Arizona last week to break its 0-2 start. And they need a good effort to avoid falling to 1-3 after an 0-4 preseason.

The Falcons are 6-1 ATS past 7 games as road favorite but Seattle has been a good NFL bet at home, goijng 14-6 ATS there since 2008.

UNDER projected in Giants vs Cards match

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of the New York Giants last 9 games against Arizona and it's 5-1 favoring the UNDER in six recent games in the desert.

Does that trend point bettors away from the spread and towards the total as the Giants visit the Cardinals in Week 4 NFL odds action? The Giants have pulverized NFC West teams lately, going 11-2 ATS in the past 13 games.

And they are favored by just a single point at online shop BetOnline this week.

Eagles battle 49ers in Week 4 odds

The Eagles and 49ers have played seven times since 2002 and San Francisco bettors only came out smiling once.

But with the QB situation flighty in Philly, is this the week the 2-1 49ers can win on the road? If history repeats itself, the Eagles will have no problem scoring, as they have averaged 35 PPG in those seven games against SF.

Winless Chiefs and Vikings Battle in Week 4

There are five winless teams heading into Week 4 of the NFL season, but only four will remain that way as the winless Vikings face the winless Chiefs.

Bettors quickly swung early behind the Vikes, turning a -3 open to a +1 number by midday Monday (watch line moves here at Odds Shark). The Vikings blew a lead for the third straight week in allowing the Lions to beat them at home, while the Chiefs were easily covering last week's biggest point spread (15 points) in a 20-17 loss at San Diego.

Steelers underdogs at Houston

A pair of teams coming off disappointing games lock up in Houston in Week 4 NFL betting action as the Texans host the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Texans gave up 40 points against the Saints while the Steelers were favored big at Indy and eked out a victory.

So the Texans Steelers spread opened at -3 for the home team, but this may move quickly during the week, especially if Arian Foster is declared fit to play. If you like the Steelers, you can get them at +4, -110 at 5Dimes earlier this week, check the latest Steelers Texans point spread.

Cowboys battle Lions in Week 4 odds

Five of the past six meetings between the Cowboys and Lions have gone UNDER the total, but this is a rare occasion where the Lions have a chance to win.

Detroit was crushed here in 2010, but comes in riding a 7-0-1 ATS mark in its past 8 games overall - a rare positive streak from one of the league's doormats in recent years.

Dallas meanwhile crept past Washington in the Week 3 Monday Nighter and Tony Romo's sore ribs bear watching again this week after the opening lines are posted.

League: 

Browns battle Titans in Week 4 odds

Expect the line to hover around PK all week as the Tennessee Titans visit Cleveland to take on the Browns in Week 4 NFL odds action.

Minus injured WR Kenny Britt, the Titans offense will have to look to Nate Washington and others to make plays against a 2-1 Browns team. Both teams have surprisingly won two straight after opening-game losses.

League: 

Bills face Bengals in Week 4 odds

The Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals have played eight times since 1996 and the Bills are a perfect 8-0 and a near-perfect 7-1 ATS against the Bengals.

So when the line opened at just -3 for the surprising 3-0 Bills, many bettors jumped on the line. But is this a letdown spot for Buffalo, a week after a huge home win over the division-rival Patriots and looking ahead to a Week 5 date with Philadelphia?

Of note, the Bills are currently the league's top-rated offense at 37.1 PPG and they averaged more than 33 PPG in those eight games vs Cincinnati.
