We are reaching the quarter point of the regular season and we’ve had our first COVID problems. We lost the clash of two unbeaten teams earlier in the week as multiple Tennessee Titans players have tested positive meaning their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers was postponed to Week 7, then on Saturday New England’s meeting with Kansas City shifted to early next week provisionally following QB Cam Newton being ruled out for the game after a positive test.
The game could still be cancelled if more players follow suit.
But the rest of the games roll on in Week 4. The Bills, Seahawks, Packers, and Bears all put their unbeaten records on the line – teams that go 4-0 have an excellent record of reaching the playoffs, so there are plenty of crucial games to pass Sunday evening.
Our NFL trader Ian Dent looks at some of the big match-ups – and decent bets…
“Sky’s early game sees the Browns travel to Dallas take on the Cowboys, whose offence has been absolutely flying to start the season. I see that continuing here against the Browns. Cleveland like to run the ball and they’ve got two very good running backs, but I think if the running game doesn’t work too well for them, they might struggle to keep up and the Cowboys could pull away.”
“The Panthers have been fairly competitive in two of their three games so far and had a nice win last week against the Chargers. The Cardinals disappointed last week when heavily fancied against the Lions and they might be over-rated, I like the Panthers getting 3 points here.”
“Meanwhile, the Seahawks are a bit like the Cowboys; they look unstoppable on offence and Russell Wilson is playing at an MVP level. I just can’t see Miami keeping up with the Seahawks here, and I expect Seattle to cover this one.”
Monday night football sees two teams who have had differing starts to the season clash as the winless Atlanta Falcons head north to take on the unbeaten Green Bay Packers.
“I’m going for the Packers here, they are very strong at Lambeau Field, and they’re off to a flying start with Aaron Rodgers and Aaron Jones combining so well, the passing game and running game are working very well for the Packers and they should have too much for the Falcons. Atlanta have had two terrible collapses, they should have won both those games easily.”
“I like the Packers to run up the score against a Falcons D that should be completely demoralised.”
“In the TD markets, I like Calvin Ridley, he is starting to look like an elite receiver and he is really blossoming in his third season”
Plenty of intrigue in week 4, and as usual, Paddy will have the best in-play markets and prices available throughout the weekend.
