5 Best Bets for Sunday’s NFL Week 4 Slate 

Latest News

Washington Commanders @ Dallas Cowboys

Spread: Cowboys -3 (-110) | Commanders +3 (-110)

Moneyline: Cowboys -155 | Commanders +125

Total: Over 41.5 (-105) | Under 41.5 (-115)

Game Preview & Pick:

I don’t know how many times I can scream that Carson Wentz is a pyramid scheme, but the Commanders are certainly at the bottom of it. Wentz is prone to boneheaded decisions even when he isn’t under pressure, so watching him look like Beaker from the Muppets while getting sacked nine times against the Eagles last week made me giggle – the fact he only fumbled twice and didn’t throw an interception is some sort of miracle. The Cowboys lead the NFL with 13 sacks, and Micah Parsons looks like the modern day Lawrence Taylor. The Cowboys have been giving Tony Pollard more touches, which is a smart move considering Zeke’s best days are behind him, and should also get Michael Gallup back for this game, so I’m jumping on the Cowboys even despite them coming into this game on a short week. 

Cowboys -3 (-110) 1 unit 

Bonus Pick:

DeMarcus Lawrence over .75 sacks (-105) 1 unit

New York Jets @ Pittsburgh Steelers 

Spread: Steelers -3.5 (-110) | Jets +3.5 (-110)

Moneyline: Steelers -190 | Jets +160

Total: Over 41.5 (-110) | Under 41.5 (-110)

Game Preview & Pick:

I grabbed the Steelers -3 earlier in the week, but I still like them at this number. Zach Wilson is slated to make his season debut in this one, but the Jets are down to their third string left tackle after placing George Fait on IR, and even without T.J. Watt on the field to wreak havoc for the Steelers, I think head coach Mike Tomlin and linebackers coach Brian Flores will be creative with their blitz packages, and force Wilson into some poor decisions. The Steelers also get the benefit of some additional time off coming into Sunday’s matchup, so I expect Najee Harris to be the healthiest he’s been all season. 

Steelers -3.5 (-110) 1 unit 

Bonus Pick:

Breece Hall over 61.5 rushing + receiving yards (-115) 1 unit

Najee Harris anytime touchdown scorer (-115) .5 unit

Jacksonville Jags @ Philadelphia Eagles

Spread: Eagles -6.5 (-110) | Jags +6.5 (-110)

Moneyline: Eagles -260 | Jags +220

Total: Over 45.5 (-110) | Under 45.5 (-110)

Game Preview & Pick:

The Jags made me look like a jackass on Sunday, to put it lightly. After rolling with them the first 2 weeks of the season, I put all my eggs into the Chargers basket on Sunday, and ended up with yoke all over my face. I was confident that the Chargers could cover 3 points at home against the Jags, even if Chase Daniels ended up being the starter, because I thought their defense would be the difference. Welp, the Jags embarrassed me, along with the Chargers apparently very overrated defense, moving the ball against them with ease. 

The Eagles defense looks to be firing on all cylinders after dominating performances against the Vikings and Commanders in consecutive weeks, and get the Jags at home in head coach Doug Pederson’s first return to the city where he served up the Philly Special. Being that they are Eagles fans, I can’t decide whether they will cheer him for delivering a Super Bowl to 
Philadelphia, while leading them to the playoffs the following two seasons before the wheels fell off in 2020, or boo him relentlessly, because well, it’s Philly…

The Eagles offense has been rolling, with Jalen Hurts emerging as an early MVP candidate, and while I don’t put too much credence in the Jags traveling to Philly after having just faced the Chargers in LA last week, I think this spot lines up favorably for the Eagles. 

Eagles -6.5 (-110) 1 unit

Bonus Pick:

Miles Sanders over 9.5 receiving yards (-115) 1 unit

Jalen Hurts anytime touchdown scorer (-105) .5 unit

Arizona Cardinals @ Carolina Panthers 

Spread: Panthers -1 (-105) | Cardinals +1 (-115)

Moneyline: Panthers -115 | Cardinals -105

Total: Over 43.5 (-110) | Under 43.5 (-110)

Game Preview & Pick:

Fortunately for the Cardinals, this isn’t a Call of Duty 2XP weekend. I actually think the Cardinals should be favored in this game, so I’ll gladly take the point, especially with CMC being questionable to play after missing practice all week with a thigh injury. While I expect McCaffrey to ultimately play, he’ll likely be limited, and putting more on the shoulders of Baker Mayfield certainly isn’t a recipe for success (thanks for ruining D.J. Moore, jackass). 

Cardinals +1 (-115) 1 unit

Bonus Pick:

Kyler Murray over 23.5 rushing yards (-110) .5 unit

Buffalo Bills @ Baltimore Ravens

Spread: Bills -3 (-110) | Ravens +3 (-110)

Moneyline: Bills -155 | Ravens +135

Total: Over 51 (-110) | Under 51 (-110)

Game Preview & Pick:

Make no mistake about it, when healthy the Bills are the best team in the NFL, and I still think they win this game, but I can’t pass up on the Ravens getting a field goal at home. Injuries continue to mount for the Bills, and it’s going to take a herculean effort from Josh Allen in this one to leave M&T Bank Stadium with a W. Baltimore has historically played with a chip on their shoulder as an underdog, and I expect them to keep this game close. 

Ravens +3 (-110) 1 unit

Bonus Pick:

Josh Allen over 287.5 passing yards (-115) 1 unit

Josh Allen over 41.5 rushing yards (-110) .5 unit
