Why Bet The NY Giants To Beat The Buccaneers

The Giants, after putting up just one TD in their first 11 quarters of play this season, scored 24 points in the fourth quarter of the 27-24 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last week. Despite the loss, the offensive outburst is a bright spot.

New York racked up 415 total yards versus Philly. Most of those yards came through the air. QB Eli Manning threw for 366 yards, 3 TDs, and 2 picks. Odell Beckham Jr. caught nine passes for 79 yards and 2 TDs. WR Sterling Shepard had a stellar game with seven receptions, 133 yards, and a score.

It looks like the Giants offense is back and they have a favorable matchup this week. The Bucs gave up 369 yards and 3 passing TDs to Vikings backup QB Case Keenum last week.

Why Bet The Tampa Bay Buccaneers To Beat The Giants

QB Jameis Winston will have to have a better game than he did last week if the Bucs have a shot at winning this game. Last week, Winston had an awful game but still passed for 328 yards and two touchdowns on a top-tier Vikings defense. Winston has thrown for nine touchdowns in five games against NFC East teams.

“I think we just need to get in and stay in, a rhythm,” coach Koetter said. “Offense is a rhythm. Sometimes you’ve got to get a break or you’ve got to get an exceptional play — and we’ve got some exceptional players who are capable of doing that — but a consistent offense is in a rhythm, everybody is doing their job.”

Why Bet The Los Angeles Rams To Beat The Cowboys

HC Sean McVay is well on his way to transforming the Rams into an offensive juggernaut. After three weeks, the Rams are averaging 35.7 points and 381.0 total yards per game. McVay has pumped second-year QB Jared Goff with confidence. Goff threw five TDs and seven picks while starting the final seven games last season. This season, he enters Sunday’s game completing 70.4% of his passes for 817 passing yards and five TDs to one interception.

Goff has a couple of deadly weapons in WR Sammy Watkins (13 rec, 194 yards, 2 TDs) and RB Todd Gurley (13 rec, 140 yards, 2 TDs). Currently, Watkins and Tavon Austin are in the concussion protocol and their availability for Sunday is unknown.

Why Bet The Los Dallas Cowboys To Beat The Rams

The Cowboys finally hit mid-season form in the second half of their 28-17 win over the Cardinals last week. They are hoping they can find the same groove that won them eleven games in a row last season.

Last week, QB Dak Prescott threw for 183 yards and two touchdowns while adding another rushing score. It was the same magic that earned him Offensive ROY honors and a trip to the Pro-Bowl last season.

While RB Ezekiel Elliott will be available for this game, the cloud of a six-game suspension still hangs over the defending rushing champ.

Good thing for the Cowboys offense, the Rams have the 29th ranked defense against the pass and they give up 139.0 rushing yards per game.

Rams Vs. Cowboys Week 4 Betting Analysis

Los Angeles surrendered 421 yards of total offense against San Francisco. The Cowboys are firing on all cylinders. Bet Dallas and the over big.

Carolina Vs New England Spread & ATS Pick

Carolina Vs New England Spread & ATS Pick

The struggling Panthers offense is getting just what the doctor ordered when they face the porous Patriots’ defense this weekend.

The Week 4 NFL betting spread favors New England by 9-points over Carolina. The over/under is 18.5-points. Kick-off is this Sunday, October 1st at 1:00 PM ET on FOX from Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts.

Why Bet The Carolina Panthers To Beat The Patriots

The Panthers offense needs a shot in the arm, especially with TE Greg Olen out with a broken foot. WR Kelvin Benjamin practiced fully Thursday and is expected to play after exiting last week’s game with a knee injury.

Cam Newton tossed three picks last week and has yet to find his accuracy, therefore, the Panthers must establish the run game. The Panthers rush attack ranks 13th with an average of 108.3 yards per game. The rushing duo of Jonathan Stewart (45 car, 162 yards, 0 TDs) and rookie Christian McCaffrey (25 car, 73 yards, 0 TDs) can be the difference makers against a Patriot defense that is allowing 130.3 rushing yards against per game.

The Patriots are allowing 331.0 passing yards per game. They also give up 31.7 points per game; the worst in the league.

Why Bet The New England Patriots To Beat The Panthers

The Patriots have the best quarterback in the NFL. Tom Brady sputtered in the season opener but has played lights out since then. Brady was named AFC offensive player two weeks in a row, both wins. He threw for five touchdowns against Houston, including the winner (and a subsequent 2-point conversion) with 23 seconds left. Heading into Week 4, he leads the NFL in passing yards with 1092 yards. He has passed for eight touchdowns and zero picks.

With Julian Edelman out for the season, Brady’s chemistry with new WR Brandin Cooks has blossomed. Cooks leads the team with 256 receiving yards. He posted 131 yards and two touchdowns against the Texans last weekend.

If You Still Can’t Decide Who To Bet On

  • Patriots are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games as a favorite.
  • Patriots are 13-5-2 ATS in their last 20 home games.
  • Panthers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss.
  • Panthers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog.

Panthers Vs. Patriots Week 4 Betting Analysis

The Patriots defense couldn’t stop a team coached by Rick Moranis, but with Brady under center New England will win, but I am betting on Carolina to cover.
