NFL Week 4 Opening Odds – By the Numbers


Get pumped for some great NFL betting action by taking a look at some of the more notable facts and figures for the Week 4 NFL betting odds.


The Numbers

10: The number of consecutive games in which the Jaguars have been lined as underdogs. All of that comes to an end on Sunday when they face the Jets at MetLife Stadium. The last time Jacksonville was favored on the road was in December 2015. The last time it actually won a road game in which it was a chalk was back in 2011 in Indianapolis (more on that team in a second). The Jaguars have lost three straight games as favorites SU.

14: The number of points the Colts are underdogs by in Week 4 at Seattle. This isn’t an overly surprising point spread, but what might surprise you is that this is the first time since the year Peyton Manning was out of the fold with his neck problems that Indy has been a double-digit underdog. Jacoby Brissett generated a win last week in the best game of his NFL career. That, though, was a game against the Browns at home, not against the Seahawks on the road on Sunday Night Football.

22: The number of years since the Raiders have been favored in Denver. Oakland has had some modest success at Mile High, including winning here two seasons ago when the Broncos went on to win the Super Bowl. In fact, the Raiders are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 trips to Denver. It’s no guarantee that Oakland will end up as a favorite in this game, as the line opened up as a pick ‘em. But if the Raiders do head into favored status, Derek Carr will be the first quarterback in the Silver and Black to be favored against the Broncos on the road since Jeff Hostetler.

40: The number representing the lowest total of Week 4. Not surprisingly, the Jets and Browns are prominently involved in these particularly low totals. New York, which has to play against Jacksonville at home in Week 4, and Cleveland, going against Cincinnati at home, both have played better defense than you might think this year, and it’s obvious that both of their offenses are horrid. The Jaguars and Bengals are both coming off of their best offensive showings of the season last week, but few believe that that’s going to continue into Week 4.

50: The number representing the highest total of Week 4. Jolly Old England is at the epicenter of what could be the highest-scoring game of the weekend. The Saints haven’t had any issues pushing the ball up and down the field this year, even without Brandin Cooks in the fold. Michael Thomas is once again having an outstanding year, and the additions of Adrian Peterson and Alvin Kamara have really rounded this offense out. That said, the Dolphins are coming off of a game against New York in which they were shut out until after the clock struck 0:00 in the fourth quarter. That isn’t a good feeling if you’re looking to play the over in the highest total of the week.
