The first month of the NFL season is nearly in the books and there is a full state of action for week 4. There are numerous great matchups for this week with the Cardinals and Rams headlining the play.
Arizona Cardinals versus Los Angeles Rams
The Rams host the Cardinals in an NFC West showdown. Both teams are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator and the Cardinals have a +26 to +25 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator. The Rams are a 4.5-point favorite with odds of 1.410 to 2.868 and an over/under of 54.5. The Scores Predictor has the Rams winning by a 27-19 margin with 82.5 percent confidence. The Totals Predictor shows the teams are trending on opposite sides of the over/under line, so it’s best to avoid that bet. The Rams have a distinct edge at home and will win and cover.
Carolina Panthers versus Dallas Cowboys
Carolina is off to a 3-0 start but will be playing without running back Christian McCaffery. They head to Dallas at a 4.5-point underdog with odds in favor of Dallas 1.45 to 2.692. The Panthers have a +30 to +8 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator and “burning hot” versus “average up” on the Team Strength Oscillator. The Scores Predictor has the Panthers winning by a 33-27 margin with 78 percent confidence. This despite the fact that the Cowboys are a 4.5-point favorite with odds of 1.45 to 2.692. Avoid the over/under with the teams on opposite sides of the line. I see a road upset to improve Carolina to 4-0.
Pittsburgh Steelers versus Green Bay Packers
The Packers are coming off a last-second win over the 49ers and the Steelers look to bounce back from a loss. Pittsburgh has a +16 to +11 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator and the Packers are “average up” versus “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator. Green Bay is a 6.5-point favorite with odds of 1.34 to 3.22 and an over/under or 45.5. The Scores Predictor has the Packers winning by a large margin, 36-16, but with only 48 percent confidence. The Totals Predictor shows that the teams have been involved in games trending on opposite sides of the line. Avoid the over/under, but go with the Packers to win and cover.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers versus New England Patriots
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers take their 2-1 record into New England. The Buccaneers have a +30 to +17 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator and the Patriots are “average” versus “average down” on the Team Strength Oscillator. Tampa Bay is a huge 7.5-point road favorite with odds of 1.31 to 3.36 and an over/under of 49.5. The Scores Predictor has Tampa Bay winning in a 31-16 blowout, but with only 39 percent confidence. The best bet is “under” and the Buccaneers taking care of business and covering on the road.
Las Vegas Raiders versus Los Angeles Chargers
In this classic AFC West battle, the Chargers host the Raiders. Las Vegas has a +28 to +10 edge on the Power Ranking Indicator and “burning hot” versus “average” on the Team Strength Oscillator. The Chargers are a slight 2.5-point home favorite with an over/under of 52.5. The Scores Predictor has the Chargers in a 24-23 win with a confidence of 36 percent. I like the Raiders on the road to cover and perhaps win. The Totals Predictor shows the teams trending on opposite sides of the over/under line.
