NFL Week 4 gives sports bettors the chance to bet on the Patriots as a big underdog – something we very rarely see.
In the early odds for Week 4, the New England Patriots have opened as a seven-point underdog to the Kansas City Chiefs, which marks just the third time in the last 18 seasons that New England has been an underdog of at least a touchdown.
Broncos (0-3) at Jets (0-3), Thursday
Opening line: Broncos, -2.5 points
Both come into this game 0-3. It seems like there’s no good team to bet here.
Colts (2-1) at Bears (3-0)
Opening line: Colts, -3 points
Both have started the season strong, with the Bears coming into this one on the back of an epic fourth-quarter comeback against the Falcons.
Jaguars (1-2) at Bengals (0-2-1)
Opening line: Bengals, -3 points
The Jaguars always seem to struggle when they leave the state of Florida, which isn’t great news for them this week. The Bengals are just 3-12 ATS in their past 15 home games overall.
Browns (2-1) at Cowboys (1-2)
Opening line: Cowboys, -5 points
The Browns have struggled on the road for quite some time now. In fact, they haven’t won a road game against an NFC team since November 2014.
Saints (1-2) at Lions (1-2)
Opening line: Saints, -3.5 points
This one is tough to call, but the Saints open up as 3.5-point favorites.
Steelers (3-0) at Titans (3-0)
Opening line: Titans, -1.5 points
The Titans are the most perplexing team to bet on in the NFL this year. Although they’re 3-0 straight-up, they’re 0-3 ATS on the season and if that pattern holds, that means they’re going win by exactly one point in Week 4. The Steelers are looking strong this season, it could go either way really.
Seahawks (3-0) at Dolphins (1-2)
Opening line: Seahawks, -7 points
The Seahawks are definitely the strongest in this matchup and are currently 7-point favorites as a result.
Chargers (1-2) at Buccaneers (2-1)
Opening line: Buccaneers, -7 points
Although most west coast teams tend to struggle when they travel east, that doesn’t seem to apply to the Chargers. In their past eight games played in the eastern time zone, the Chargers have gone 7-1 both straight-up and ATS. The Bucs will be hoping that Brady can lead them to a big win here.
Ravens (2-0) at Washington (1-2)
Opening line: Ravens, -14 points
After Monday’s game against Kansas City, the Ravens have gone 11-2 ATS in their last 13. A disappointing defeat to the Chiefs means they will be eager to bounce back with a big win here.
Cardinals (2-1) at Panthers (1-2)
Opening line: Cardinals, -3.5

Opening line: Rams, -12 points
This game will mark the ninth time under Sean McVay that the Rams have been favored by double digits. As for the Giants, they haven’t been winning on the road, but they have been covering (13-3).
Patriots (2-1) at Chiefs (2-0)
Opening line: Chiefs, -7 points
The Chiefs are 3-0-1 ATS in their past four home games when favored by a touchdown or more and, if they carry Monday Night’s performance into Week 4 then they’ll be expected to make that 4-0-1.
Bills (3-0) at Raiders (2-1)
Opening line: Bills, -2.5 points
The Bills don’t play out west often, which is probably for the best, because they rarely seem to win out there. Since 2010, the Bills have gone 1-6 both straight-up and ATS when playing in the pacific time zone. However, they do open up as 2.5-point favorites.
Eagles (0-2-1) at 49ers (2-1)
Opening line: 49ers, -6 points
Since the start of the 2014 season, the 49ers are 2-13-1 ATS when favored by six or more. As for the Eagles, they’re one of just two NFC teams that has yet to cover the spread in a game this year. San Francisco should win and it will probably be just a case of how many by.
Falcons (0-3) at Packers (3-0), Monday
Opening line: Packers, -7 points
The Falcons have blown two big leads over the past two weeks, which will worry their fans coming into this one. Green Bay is 16-3 straight-up and 13-6 ATS since the start of the 2019 season. As for the Falcons, they’ve actually won five straight Monday games (3-2 ATS). This will be an interesting Monday Night Football matchup to end Week 4.
