After a bunch of shootouts and blow outs in Week 3, should NFL betting fans expect games to go over the totals this week? Let’s explore the early games for week 4 NFL odds.
Lions (0-3) vs Packers (2-1)
We can expect the Pack to romp both straight-up and against the spread in this sports betting matchup. They’ve beaten the spread in seven of their last eight against the Lions and woeful Detroit is 3-9-1 ATS over its last 13 trips to Lambeau Field. The OVER seems tempting as the Pack should score a ton but it’s important to remember that the Lions may not. The UNDER is 6-1 over Detroit’s last seven against NFC North opponents.
Broncos (1-2) vs Titans (2-1)
Could we have a high-octane affair on our hands? The Broncos have gone OVER the total in seven of their last eight games overall. Should the Titans also worry about Kyle Orton’s surprising play? He threw for 476 yards last week and Tennessee is also 2-9 ATS over their last 11 when allowing 250-plus passing yards the previous game.
49ers (0-3) vs Falcons (2-1)
Though the underdog is 9-4 ATS over the last 13 meetings in the series, this sports betting blog wonders if the Falcons aren’t getting enough credit. Why else would they be 6-1 ATS over their last seven games? Maybe oddsmakers are undervaluing them. Could San Francisco bottle up Michael Turner this week? The UNDER is 9-0 in San Fran’s last nine after allowing 150 or more rushing yards the previous game.
Seahawks (2-1) vs Rams (1-2)
Both teams’ spread trends look ice-cold. Seattle is 1-9 ATS over its last nine road games whereas the Rams are 10-21 ATS over their last 31 at home. Maybe the divisional rivalry is the best trend to follow at your sportsbook. Seattle has beaten the spread six straight times against St. Louis. But will Sam Bradford’s presence change things? This may be a game to avoid altogether.
Ravens (2-1) vs Steelers (3-0)
We always expect a smashmouth affair when these teams meet – but do books overcompensate? Surprisingly, this series has gone OVER the total in six of the last eight meetings. The Steelers are 4-0-1 ATS over their last five overall.
