Place Your Bets: Week 4



    If you live in Nevada, Oregon, Montana or Delaware, you're in luck. Otherwise, go to Canada or Europe, or those rogues in New Jersey and get your bet on for the NFL weekend! All games are Sunday unless otherwise noted.

    Miami at New Orleans (-6.5), Monday night — Miami is undefeated, one of the biggest surprises in the NFL — a league that is full of them around this time of every season. But they're going into a wasp nest on Monday night in a primetime game in the raucous environment in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Saints' offense is rolling, and the Saints' defense is playing pretty well too under Rob Ryan. The Dolphins' party comes to an end on Monday night.

    New England at Atlanta (-1.5) — The Patriots are undefeated, but they've played a bunch of cupcakes. The Falcons are at home, where they're hard to beat, and their high-flying passing game behind Matt Ryan and Julio Jones will be too much for the Patriots to handle.

    Chicago at Detroit (-3.5) — This will be a highly entertaining game. The Bears are playing well, and the Lions expect to have Reggie Bush back to give their offense its full complement. When Matthew Stafford has everything he needs, he can do damage, even against the Bears' opportunistic defense.

    Seattle at Houston (+3.5) — The Texans have had their moments this year, but they're still a good team with a good defense. The Seahawks are a completely different team on the road, not a bad one, just not an unbeatable one. Go with the home underdog here.

    Dallas (-2.5) at San Diego — The Chargers defense is one of the league's worst. It might be the worst this side of Philadelphia. Tony Romo is in a groove, and DeMarco Murray is coming off a game which saw him top 200 total yards and score a rushing touchdown. Philip Rivers is playing well through the first few weeks, but he won't have enough here. Cowboys win fairly easily.
