NFL Week 4 lines and odds: Making a case for the favorites

The NFL Week 4 schedule throws up some mismatches. We make a case for all the favorites to cover in NFL Week 4.

Denver Broncos (-2) at New York Jets

Somebody has to win. Have you seen the Jets? It’s time for Denver to get into the win column.

Arizona Cardinals (-3.5) at Carolina Panthers

Arizona is coming off a loss to the moribund Lions, and it should have the Cardinals motivated to step up and avoid a repeat.

Baltimore Ravens (-13) at Washington Football Team

After what happened on Monday night, the Ravens are going to come out furious. And what do they find? An underwhelming Washington team.

Cleveland Browns at Dallas Cowboys (-4.5)

The Browns are wildly inconsistent and the defense has been spotty. The Cowboys have a terrific offense and, at home, dominate this matchup.

Indianapolis Colts (-2.5) at Chicago Bears

Nick Foles has the job in Chicago, but the Colts are a better team playing great defense with a solid offense. Covering a field goal at Soldier Field is more than realistic.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals (-3)

The Bengals have been so close to winning each week. This time, they get a lesser team at home.

Los Angeles Chargers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-7.5)

Tom Brady has improved by the week, the defense is excellent and the Chargers are getting the first start of Justin Herbert’s career on the road.

Minnesota Vikings at Houston Texans (-3.5)

Houston has played the Chiefs, Ravens and Steelers. Getting the Vikings on the docket has to feel like seeing a high school team by comparison.

New Orleans Saints (-4) at Detroit Lions

The Saints can’t afford to go to 1-3. Look for Sean Payton to pull out all the stops against an overmatched Lions squad.

Pittsburgh Steelers (-1.5) at Tennessee Titans

Assuming the game gets played, the Steelers are the better team on both sides of the ball. Tennessee is a quality team, but Pittsburgh is a legit contender.

Seattle Seahawks (-6.5) at Miami Dolphins

The Seahawks have the MVP through three weeks in Russell Wilson, and he’s facing a porous Miami defense. Mismatch.

New York Giants at Los Angeles Rams (-13)

The Giants are involved. Take the Rams.

Buffalo Bills (-3) at Las Vegas Raiders

Buffalo is playing terrific offensive ball behind Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs. The Raiders haven’t played much defense, and why change now?

New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs (-7)

Kansas City is the league’s best team, and now it comes home to fans at Arrowhead Stadium. The Patriots will have a tough time slowing down Patrick Mahomes, because everyone does.

Philadelphia Eagles at San Francisco 49ers (-7)

Carson Wentz.

Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers (-7.5)

Just imagine what the Falcons will lose by when they don’t start with a three-score lead.
