NFL Week 4 Odds: Early betting favorites include Jets, Seahawks
Week 3 of the NFL season saw 11 games decided by a touchdown or more, and subsequently oddsmakers at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com have been forced to adjust the Week 4 betting lines accordingly.
The Dolphins were on the wrong end of a lopsided blowout against the Bills and now fly out to London to battle the 2-1 Jets. Miami was a favorite in the look-ahead line, but now find themselves as a 2.5-point underdog.
Meanwhile, the aforementioned Bills, who are now 7-2 against the spread over their last nine games, have been installed as six-point home chalk against the Giants, who are coming off of a big divisional victory over the Redskins last Thursday.
Four teams are favored by a touchdown or more this week. The Seahawks, fresh off a beatdown of the lowly Bears, are the biggest favorites on the board, laying 10 points at home to the winless Lions on Monday Night Football.
It’s no surprise to see the Colts favored by 8.5 as they host the Jaguars, especially since Indianapolis is 12-1-1 against the spread in its last 14 divisional games. Other big spreads on the board see the Chargers as eight-point favorites at home to the Browns, and the red-hot Cardinals laying a touchdown at home to the Rams.
In a pivotal divisional matchup on Thursday Night Football, Michael Vick takes the reigns for the Steelers as they battle the 0-3 Ravens. Despite their winless record, Baltimore is 2.5-point road chalk in the Steel City.
Sticking with divisional matchups, the Eagles look to ride the momentum of their upset victory over the Jets into Washington, where they’re laying 3.5 points. Meanwhile, the Bucs, who are just 2-8 against the spread in their last 10 home games, will look to reverse that trend as they host the Panthers as a three-point home dog.
The undefeated Broncos are expected to remain perfect as they’ve been installed as a 6.5-point home favorite to the Vikings. Minnesota is just 2-10 straight up in their last 12 games on the road in October, although many of those games were without Teddy Bridgewater under center.
And finally, the Raiders find themselves in an extremely rare road favorite role as they’re laying 2.5 points in Chicago.
