Place Your Bets: Week 4



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

    1. Atlanta (-3) at Minnesota — Matt Ryan is coming off one of the best games of his career, and he's opposing a quarterback making his first career start without one of the best running backs in football. The Falcons have too many offensive weapons for the Vikings to keep up with.

    2. Carolina at Baltimore (-3.5) — The Ravens have been quietly good this year despite all of the Ray Rice/NFL controversy that the Ravens themselves have been brought into recently. The Panthers have struggled despite having one of the league's best defenses. Other than Kelvin Benjamin, who is Cam Newton going to throw the ball to? Oh, and who is he going to hand the ball to? The Panthers' offense is a mess.

    3. Green Bay (-1.5) at Chicago — Everything about this game points to the Bears winning, but it's really hard to imagine the Packers falling to 1-3 on the season, and a 1.5-point spread is barely anything. A win for the Packers basically means a win against the spread.

    4. Philadelphia at San Francisco (-5) — The 49ers have been a first-half juggernaut and a second-half slouch so far this season. The Niners defense has struggled by their lofty standards, and the Eagles aren't an offense you want to struggle against. But give me Colin Kaepernick for a huge bounce back week after a couple of pretty disappointing outings.

    5. New Orleans (-3) at Dallas — This game has all the makings of a shootout. Except there's one thing: The Saints' juggernaut offense hasn't been anything special through three games this year. But you know what, expect that to change in primetime. The Saints and Drew Brees have routinely torched the Cowboys' defense in recent years, and don't be shocked if it happens again. I expect a fun game between two elite offenses and two suspect defenses, but the Saints should pull it out in the end.
