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.


Bears vs Cowboys Monday Night Pick

It could be a defensive battle when the Dallas Cowboys host the Chicago Bears this Monday night at Cowboys Stadium.

The total has gone UNDER in seven of the last 10 meetings between these two teams. Usually known for its prolific offense, Dallas is actually 14-6 on the UNDER in its last 20 games including UNDERs in six straight.

But the Monday Night trends seems to favor the Bears. The Cowboys are just 1-6 ATS in their past 7 Monday Nighters, while the Bears are 6-2 ATS in 8 MNF battles. On the road and going back to the 1990s, they are 8-3 ATS in 11 MNF games. [ BET ON MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL NOW AND POCKET A 50% BONUS AT Bovada ]


Eagles vs Giants Betting Prediction

The Philadelphia Eagles will try to stay hot against the New York Giants when they host the defending Super Bowl Champions this Sunday night.

The Eagles are 7-1 both SU and ATS in their last eight games against the New York Giants. The total has gone UNDER in four of the last five games for both Philadelphia and New York and in three of the last four meetings between the two teams as well.

But beware the Giants, who have dominated lately as a road team and as an underdog. They are 7-0 ATS past 7 as an underdog and 9-2 ATS in their past 11 road games. Counting the Super Bowl, they won six straight away from Giants Stadium.


Cardinals Dolphins Betting Preview

The surprisingly undefeated Arizona Cardinals hope to stay hot this Sunday when they host the Miami Dolphins at the University of Phoenix Stadium.

Arizona is 8-1 SU and 7-2 ATS over its last nine games. Miami is just 7-15 SU in its last 22 games overall and 2-8 SU in its last 10 games on the road.

The Cards have won 7 straight SU at home and are 10-2 in their past 12, a main reason why the point spread at was holding through mid-week at -7.


Spread Climbs in Pats vs Bills Odds

After losing two straight games, the New England Patriots will try to get back on track against a team they always have success against when they visit the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium Sunday.

New England is 18-2 SU and 13-6-1 ATS against the Buffalo Bills since 2002 and 10-2 in their past 12 visits there. The Patriots are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games on the road and 8-2-1 ATS in their past 11 games as a road favorite.

And they didn't lay a lot of points on the Week 4 opening lines. Most books had them as 3.5-point road favorites but it had been bet up to -4.5 at Bovada by mid-week.


Packers Saints Betting Preview for Week 4

Look for plenty of offense Sunday when the winless New Orleans Saints visit the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

Since 1995, all six meetings between these two teams have gone OVER the total, including last season's 42-34 Green Bay victory. The total has gone OVER in four of New Orleans' last six road games and in seven of Green Bay's last eight home games.

The total was sitting around 54, high by NFL standards, but these teams have played six straight head-to-head OVERs. The desperate Saints are just 1-4 ATS in five trips to Lambeau since 1985 and in four games since 2005 when they were dogs of 9 points, they have never won.


Broncos vs Raiders Betting Matchup Report

Fresh off of an upset win over the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Oakland Raiders will try to continue their success at Mile High with another upset win over the Denver Broncos.

Oakland is 4-0 SU and ATS in its last four games in Denver and is 6-0 ATS in its last six trips to Colorado. The total has gone OVER in five straight meetings between these two teams and in eight of the last 10.

Denver struggles as a favorite and Oakland thrives in the dog role. An interesting bye-week angle has Oakland at 6-1 ATS the past 7 times that their pre-bye week is on road. That is the situation here in Week 4.


49ers Jets Week 4 Betting Preview

The New York Jets will have to take on the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday at MetLife Stadium without their best player, cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Revis tore his ACL in New York's 23-20 win over Miami last week.

San Francisco is 15-4 straight up and 13-6 ATS in its last 19 games. The 49ers had moved to 4-point road favorite status at 5Dimes by mid-week.

But beware the 49ers and their lame road chalk trend.  They are just 3-13-1 ATS in their past 17 games in this situation, but this feels like a rebound game after last week's effort in Minnesota. [ Get Twitter updates on line moves and injury updates ]


NFL Odds: Week 4 NFL Line Moves

After opening as a slight home favorite Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles are now in a pick'em situation with the rival New York Giants as we look at the current line moves for Week 4 of the NFL season.

The only other line move of a full point over the first four days of the week was in the Cleveland at Baltimore game, where the Ravens have gone from -14.5 to -13.5 on the NFL betting lines at 5Dimes.


Browns vs Ravens: Week 4 Betting

The Baltimore Ravens will try to extend their winning streak over the Cleveland Browns to nine games Thursday night when they host their division rival at M&T Bank Stadium.

Baltimore is 8-0 SU and 6-2 ATS in its last eight games against Cleveland. The total has gone UNDER in five of the last six meetings between these two teams.

The Ravens are 8-1 SU in their past 9 as a double-digit favorite, but just 1-8 ATS. Contrast that with Cleveland's 8-3 ATS in 11 recent games as a dog of 9 or more points and you have a possible cover situation.
