NFL WEEK 4 AGAINST THE SPREAD PICKS
Baltimore -2.5 Steelers
Baltimore has started of 0-3 for the first time in their history. The Steelers lost Big Ben and that is a big lost. I do not know which Mike Vick we will see. The Vick with the Jets was not good because the talent level sucked. Vick is prone to turnovers but he still has some speed and a big arm. I just feel ravens are more desperate and a few days is too little for Vick to be ready.
Jets -1.5 Dolphins
My team the Dolphin sucks despite all of the talent. Their big problem of course is the coach. The Jets are not as great as people thought the first two weeks. In typical Joe Philbin style he will win this game to save his job and probably go back to the same old boring Joe next week.
Colts -9 Jags
The Colts have been horrible so far and the Jags have been better than last year and that does not say much. The Colts will not be a serious contender unless Gore and Johnson play a bigger role. I say they barely cover here.
Falcons -6.5 Texans
Texans have 2 backups as QB and the only way they can beat a team is with defense. Falcons offense has looked great so far this year and Texans can’t score enough.
Panthers -3 Bucs
The bucs have shown they are not as bad as they were week 1. They also show they do have a long way to go. The panthers are not an offense machine but they will muster enough to beat the Bucs.
Bills -5.5 Giants
Bills looked great beating the dolphins but they have not gotten to the level of the Patriots. The Giants are better than their record and could easily be 3-0. I think the two teams match up pretty tight and Bills may win but Giants will cover.
Raiders -3 Bears
Raiders have been playing great. Carr has them putting up points on offense and the D look decent. I do not think they are a playoff team but could easily win 7 or 8. The bears are without Culter just when he started off good. Clausen will be a turnover machine.
Eagles -3 Redskins
Redskins are an OK team not as bad as some thought they would be. The Eagles showed a little sign of life last week against the Jets. Eagles have a slight advantage here and they will win.
Bengals -4 Chiefs
Bengals have looked good so far and so has KC but KC had some tough opponents that they lost to. It should be a good matchup and I give Cincy the edge because they are at home.
Chargers -7.5 Browns
Josh Mcown sucks and look Manziel is not the saviour now but he gives a better chance to win than Mcown. The chargers have not lived up to expectation but they do cover here.
Packers -8.5 49ers
49ers finally are who we thought they were. that first week against the Vikings was a farce. Packers have been clicking on offense and it will continue here.
Denver -6.5 Vikings
Broncos D has been doing a great job this year and for once a Peyton team does not have to fully rely on him. Vikings have been playing good ball especially with Peterson back. At home though I think the Broncos will still roll probably only by a TD but enough to cover.
Arizona -7 Rams
Rams have been an up and down team and really only showed they can score against the seahawks. I dont believe Foles is that good and thats a big problem. Cards look good on offence and defense and they should cover 7.
Saints -4 Cowboys
I am rolling Cowboys all day. They almost beat Atlanta with a backup QB in his first week taking over for Romo. The Saints got beat with Brees at home by Tampa bay so they are not the Saints of old.
Seattle -10 Lions
Seattle does not have what they had last year at least not yet. The Lions are not as bad as their 0-3 record shows. They put up a fight in the last game and while I am sure Seattle will win I think the Lions can cover.
