NFL Week 4 2022: A case for each favorite
It’s time for the NFL Week 4 lines, and we look at how each favorite not only wins but covers their respective spreads this weekend.
Miami Dolphins at Cincinnati Bengals (-3.5)
The Dolphins are 3-0, but they’ve won in unsustainable ways. The Bengals should be able to take advantage of a porous Miami secondary.
Minnesota Vikings (-2.5) at New Orleans Saints
The first London game of the year, and it gives the Vikings a good chance to beat a Saints team that hasn’t been able to generate offense most of the season.
Cleveland Browns (-1.5) at Atlanta Falcons
The Browns are coming off a long rest, and get a Falcons team that doesn’t have much up front in either trench.
Washington Commanders at Dallas Cowboys (-3)
The Cowboy are the better team, at home, and with momentum after winning two games with Cooper Rush under center.
Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions (-6)
Seattle isn’t good, and the Lions actually have an offense that can put points up in a hurry. Could be a blowout.
Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts (-3)
No team scored a bigger win in Week 3 than the Colts, who now get a wounded Titans team in their own building.
Chicago Bears at New York Giants (-3.5)
The Giants are going to be looking for a rebound after losing a close one to the Cowboys on Monday night. The Bears are a perfect rebound team.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Philadelphia Eagles (-6.5)
Philadelphia is playing the best football of any team in the league. The Eagles are lights out, and while Jacksonville is better, it isn’t on Philly’s level.
New York Jets at Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5)
Both teams aren’t good, but the Steelers are at home, with the better coach, on longer rest.
Buffalo Bills (-3.5) at Baltimore Ravens
Buffalo has been dominant this season, even in last week’s loss. The Ravens won’t be able to stop the high-powered attack.
Los Angeles Chargers (-5) at Houston Texans
Even with the injuries, Los Angeles has a much better roster on both sides of the ball.
Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers (-1.5)
How can you believe in the Cardinals to go across the country and win? They’ve largely been awful.
New England Patriots at Green Bay Packers (-10.5)
The Packers are getting the Patriots in their building, without Mac Jones. Should be a runaway.
Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders (-2)
This is it for the Raiders, who at 0-3 either win or their season ends. Also, the Broncos might be 2-1, but they’ve looked awful.
Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers have been a mess offensively, and can’t block. Kansas City had issues on Sunday in Indy, but the Chiefs are clicking on a few more cylinders.
Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers (-2.5)
The Niners have given the Rams fits for years, and they have the same roster once again.
