Why Bet On The Cleveland Browns

The Browns finally won a game. But should you bet on Cleveland to win two in a row? On the road? On the West Coast three time zones away?

Baker Mayfield is the 30th starting quarterback in Cleveland since 1999. Only two have won their first start, 26 lost and one tied. Mayfield is better than his predecessors by a high margin. He is also surrounded with immense talent including Jarvis Landry, David Njoku, Carlos Hyde, Nick Chubb, and a game-changing defense.

Speaking of the Browns’ defense. Opponents have scored 15.1 fewer points against Cleveland versus other all other opponents. This week the Browns D face a Raiders team that has been outscored 37-3 in the fourth quarter play through three weeks. David Carr’s five interceptions are tied for most in the league.

Why Bet On The Oakland Raiders

The Raiders are sixth in the NFL in total offense. But let’s break the numbers down. Oakland is outscoring opponents by a combined 35-17 in the first half so far this season. Then after half-time, the Raiders are being outscored 64-17. That makes the equally error-prone Browns a perfect opponent.

The last time a first overall pick QB to win his first start was David Carr in 2013. It’s a 0-10 SU and ATS run since.

Cleveland vs. Oakland Betting Predictions

The lack of a Raiders pass rush is the difference maker in this game. Cleveland’s defense will limit Carr and company. Oakland’s 18th-ranked combined defense won’t stop Mayfield, Landry, Njoku, Hyde…et al.

Bet the Browns and the over.

Are the Jacksonville Jaguars a smart NFL bet?

Jets vs Jaguars Spread, Moneyline, Over/Under Odds Week 4

Rookie Sam Darnold and the New York Jets head south to face the Jalen Ramsey and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The NFL Week 4 betting spread favors the Jags by 7.5-points. The moneyline pays $310 on a $100 Jets’ bet and the Jags pay out $100 on a $370 bet. The game total is a lowly 38.5-points for over/under bets.

Spread: Jags -7½
Moneyline: NYJ +310/Jax -370
Total: 38½

Why Bet On The New York Jets

The New York Jets are on a four-game win streak against the Jags. Can they keep that streak going with their rookie franchise QB? Sam Darnold has thrown for 701 yards, 3 TDs, and 5 INTs. Now he faces a stingy Jaguars defense, led by All-Pro cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.

That means the Jets will have to establish the run game with Isaiah Crowell. He leads the league with four rushing TDs along with Carlos Hyde and Todd Gurley. Crowell also averages 4.5 yards per carry. Will a stout rush game be enough to cover the NFL Week 4 spread as 7.5-point dogs?

Why Bet On The Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville lost their first game of the season last week at the hands of the Titans by a 9-6 score. That points towards a Jacksonville win this week. Head coach Doug Marrone’s Jags are 7-1 following a loss. But the question is should you bet on Jacksonville’s NFL Week 4 spread at -7.5.

Jets vs. Jaguars Betting Predictions Week 4

Can Sam Darnold pull of a Josh Allen-esque upset of the Jags?

The short answer is no.

The long answer is: The Jets are 6-0 ATS in its last six when failing to cover the spread in consecutive games. This will be a low scoring affair in Florida’s swampy heat. Blake Bortles has his moments but can’t win games on his own. Leonard Fournette and TJ Yeldon are both day-to-day in Jacksonville’s backfield. Even if Fournette returns, the Jags will be careful not to re-aggravate his bum hammy.

Bet the Jets to cover the spread at +7.5 and the Under.

Miami vs New England Spread & ATS Pick Week 4

Miami vs New England Spread & ATS Pick Week 4

The undefeated Miami Dolphins are on the road to face the struggling New England Patriots who losers of two straight. The NFL Week 4 spread favors the Patriots by 7.5-points.

Should you bet the NFL Week 4 spread on the notoriously bad road Dolphins? Or is Tom Brady, who hasn’t lost three in a row since prohibition, the smart bet? Let’s find out which AFC East team could get the W this Sunday.

Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots Spread & ATS Pick NFL Week 4

What: NFL Week 4
Who: Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots
Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro
When: 1 PM ET, Sunday, September 30
Watch: CBS
Stream: CBS Sports
Spread: Pats -7½
Moneyline: Dolphins +245/Patriots -290
Total: 48

Why Bet on the Miami Dolphins

Miami is gunning for their its first 4-0 season since 1995 and first win at New England since 2008. That last win came on Sept. 21, 2008. That day the Dolphins debuted the Wildcat offense.

A Wildcat offense won’t get the better of the Patriots this weekend. But Detroit proved that a strong run game will when the Lions racked up 159 yards last week. The question is can Miami duplicate that formula to cover the 7.5-point betting spread or even win.

Top Dolphin running back Kenyan Drake had a career-high 193 scrimmage yards the last time he faced New England. The ageless Frank Gore recorded 289 scrimmage yards in three career games against the Patriots. Both will see a lot of carries this weekend.

Why Bet On The New England Patriots

New England has won 14 of its last 16 matchups against Miami heading into Sunday’s tilt. Moreover, the Patriots have won by an average of 19-points the previous five times the Dolphins have visited. Plus I don’t see Tom Brady losing three times in a row. The only question that remains is will New England cover the 7.5-point spread as NFL Week 4 betting favorites.

Miami vs. New England ATS Pick Week 4

Miami’s 3-0 record is deceptive. The Dolphins have beaten the Titans, Jets, and Raiders who have a combined 3-6 record through three weeks.

And do you honestly think Brady and Belichick will lose three in a row? Bet the Patriots to cover the 7.5-point NFL Week 4 spread.
