Pittsburgh -1.5 at Tennessee Total 47

Editor Alert: Several Titans staff tested positive for Covid-19 so this game is tentatively moved to Monday or Tuesday. If you wondered if any NFL game had ever been played on a Tuesday, the Dec. 28, 2010 game between the Eagles and Vikings is the only time. And if you are looking for a single-game ‘trend,’ the Eagles were home favorites of 14 points and lost outright 24-14, with a non-QB running the show for Minnesota (Joe Webb).

This is another spot where so many trends point to the OVER that you feel you should bet UNDER to avoid the set-up. Only Pittsburgh sturdy 20-5 UNDER angle in road games points that direction for totals bettors. On the spread, Tennessee has been good or lucky and we’ll figure out which it is on Sunday.

OVER is 12-1 Tennessee’s last 13 games played on a Sunday.

OVER is 11-1 Tennessee’s last 12 games played in Week 4 (18-4 going back 22 seasons)

LA Chargers +7.5 @ Tampa Bay Total 4

Just the 5th time since 2010 that Bucs are favored by at least a TD at home. And Tampa bettors hope Tom Brady can reverse this ugly October trend – 1-10-1 ATS in their last 12 games played in October and lost 19 of 24 overall.

LA Chargers are 2-11 ATS past 13 vs NFC South teams.

LA Chargers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at Tampa Bay

OVER is 15-6 Tampa Bay’s last 21 games.

Cleveland +4.5 at Dallas Total 56

Hey, it’s a positive ATS trend for Cleveland! They are 10-4 ATS in Week 4 games vs a Cowboys teams that is 2-9 ATS in Week 4 lately. Of course, there are a bunch of negative Cleveland trends too but Browns backers are hoping for a third straight win here. If you are betting Cleveland on the moneyline, you are predicting a road win for the Browns, something they have failed to achieve 34 of the last 38 tries.

Minnesota +3.5 at Houston Total 54.5

A pair of 0-3 teams makes for dangerous handicapping. Houston usually wins as a favorite (15-4 SU past 19) and they usually cover in Week 4 (14-4 ATS past 18 seasons).

Minnesota is all over the place, choking on 2-11 SU run in 13 games as the underdog but rewarding bettors with an 11-1 SU, 8-2-1 ATS run when the calendar flips to October.

OVER is 18-6 Houston’s last 24 games in October.

New Orleans -4 at Detroit Total 54

October has been like Christmas for New Orleans Saints bettors over the past two decades. If you bet the Saints to cover every October game since 2015, you would have won 20 of 22 bets! Yup, 20-2 ATS. They are also dynamite as a road team and have been awesome in Week 4 as well (12-2 ATS).

Detroit is 16-6 ATS in their last 22 Week 4 games

Philadelphia +6.5 at San Francisco Total 45

Finally, the Eagles get a few favorable trends. Now can they actually win a game and cover a spread? Since 2013, the 49ers have been regular-season home favorites of 6 or more points 13 times. They have never covered a spread (0-12-1 ATS). Mix in Philly’s 7-1 ATS streak against San Francisco, including 5 straight in SF, and this must be an Eagle cover?

This is the biggest home dog number of the year so far and just the 8th time since 1980 that Baltimore is double-digit road favorites. Its just the sixth time since 1980 that Washington is a double-digit home dogs (twice last season). The Ravens dominate spreads on the road.

Baltimore is 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games.

Baltimore covered 6 straight road games, 15-4-2 ATS past 21 road games.

Baltimore 7-0 SU, 6-0-1 ATS past 7 as road chalk

Seattle -6.5 at Miami Total 54.5

Not much to see here. Miami holds ATS edges against the Seahawks and they have played five straight OVERs when home dog, so maybe the total is the play.

Seattle 9-1 SU past 10 as road chalk

Miami is 5-1 ATS past 6 home games.

Miami is 3-12 ATS past 15 games played in Week 4.

Cincinnati is 1-5 ATS past 6 games as the favorite.

Buffalo -2.5 at Las Vegas Total 52.5

Its just the second time since 2014 that New England is a road dog twice in the same season. Of course, they have dominated the spread in this situation over the years.
