NFL Betting: Bills Aim For Fourth Win While AFC Gives Chase


NFL Betting PicksThe Buffalo Bills are alone at the top of the AFC at 3-0, but fans in and around Orchard Park aren’t taking anything for granted after watching their team fall behind by 21 points in each of their past two wins. The Bills will look to keep their run going this week with a short trip west to face the Cincinnati Bengals, while the rest of the NFL betting lines conference plays catch up early on.

Buffalo Bills (-3) @ Cincinnati Bengals

Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

While it is not as surprising as that they are 3-0, the fact that Buffalo is listed as only three-point favorites this week against a struggling Bengals’ team has to have turned at least a few heads, especially considering the Bills were able to overcome a powerful New England Patriots’ team a week ago. But after falling behind in each of their last two contests, there are question marks about how long Buffalo will be able to overcome those early struggles, and they will look to avoid another slow start this sports betting week against Cincinnati. The Bills’ rushing attack ranks fourth in the NFL with running back Fred Jackson setting the tone on the ground with 303 rushing yards and three touchdowns through three wins, and he and CJ Spiller are averaging 6.4 and 8.2 yards per carry respectively. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to produce but will need to do a better job with not turning the ball over.

NFL Betting Pick: Buffalo Bills - 3

Tennessee Titans @ Cleveland Browns (-1)

Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Titans are perfect through two home games, but they did lose to Jacksonville in their lone road game so far this season, and Cleveland has looked good in consecutive wins. The Browns have done a good job of bending but not breaking defensively, but they need to do a better job against the run after allowing an average of 128.7 yards per game through three contests. Tennessee hasn’t been able to get its running game going, with a league-worst average of 51.7 yards through three games, with Chris Johnson earning just 2.1 yards per carry. The Titans will need to get their rushing game going if they are going to have any chance at contending in the AFC this season, and it begins this NFL betting picks week against Cleveland.

NFL Betting Pick: Tennessee Titans +1

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Houston Texans (-4)

Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Steelers survived a close fishing games outing against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football even without Peyton Manning in the lineup, because they continued to struggle with turnovers. Pittsburgh has the weapons to keep this one close, but unless they can do a better job of securing the ball and not turning it over, they will have a hard price per head time getting a win on the road against a talented Texans’ team.

NFL Betting Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers + 4

NFL Betting Lines: Top Games to Watch in Week 4


NFL BettingIf you’re fishing for some games to wager on in the fourth week of the NFL’s regular season, you won’t have to look very far as all of the rust should be shaken off by now, and we’re going to really start to see what teams are made of. Here are the top three games of the week in pro football.

Panthers Bears Odds – Sunday, 1:00 PM ET

The Bears will be favored at home against the Panthers, who got their first win of the season against Jacksonville, and while No.1 overall NFL betting picks Cam Newton didn’t have a big game, Carolina was efficient and their defense did the rest. Chicago’s defense has come under fire this year, but you have to look at their competition: Atlanta, New Orleans and Green Bay, three of the top offenses in the NFC, and they should bounce back this week at home against Carolina, who will face former Panther Julius Peppers. The former North Carolina Tar Heel was huge against the Panthers last year, and Peppers should have a big game again; Chicago still has to protect Jay Cutler, though. Take Chicago to cover at home.

Patriots Raiders Odds – Sunday, 4:15 PM ET

The Patriots should be the NFL road favorites in Oakland, and they’ve scored 79 points in their last two meetings with the Raiders, who upset the New York Jets last week. New England’s defense let them down in losing a 21-0 lead in Buffalo, but it was also an uncharacteristically bad day for Tom Brady, who had four touchdown passes, but he was also picked off four times. Look for Brady to take out some frustrations on the Raiders, who managed to rush for 171 yards against a tough New York defense. They’ll need more of the same this week, but we’re rolling with the Patriots.

Jets Ravens Odds – Sunday, 8:20 PM ET

Finally, the Ravens should be a slight favorite according to NFL betting lines as Jets head coach Rex Ryan returns to Baltimore, where he spent 10 years as the architect of their defensive scheme. Ryan’s Jets will be hungry to bounce back from their loss to the Raiders, while the Ravens rebounded from a disappointing loss to Tennessee by blasting St. Louis at home. Ryan has some insights into how to beat the Baltimore defense, Mark Sanchez had a great game against the Raiders and you can expect the defense to step up after Oakland ran through them. Last year’s meeting was a 10-9 win for the Ravens on the road; look for the Jets to return the favor and come away with a victory in your online sports betting book.
