The National Football League’s fourth week of regular season play will have mostly mild weather at the outdoor sites with no more than a 50% chance of rain in Chicago, where the Bears host the Detroit Lions, and in Foxboro, where the New England Patriots entertain the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tonight.
With three regular season weeks and Thursday night’s result in the books, the good and bad teams are establishing themselves. Still, some teams that are not playing like a top team, including both of last year’s Super Bowl participants, are still carrying point spreads as if they were still in top form.
The Kansas City Chiefs have lost two straight games and not covered a regular season point spread since last November 1. That is 11 games with a point spread record of 0-10-1. And yet, today they are favored on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles and the parlay cards in Nevada show a 20-1 ratio on Kansas City over Philadelphia.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have only beaten one point spread in three outings and lost decisively last Sunday at SoFi Stadium to the Los Angeles Rams. Tonight, they travel to Foxboro for Tom Brady’s reunion with his old fans and coach. The public has an even higher degree of confidence for the Buccaneers with parlay cards running at 30-1 on the visitors.
Do they take into consideration that only five teams in the league have allowed more points than the Buccaneers?
Doesn’t matter. They are betting on Brady to beat his old team.
If it is not the Chiefs or Buccaneers in the top spot in the NFL this year, who is?
The Los Angeles Rams have won three straight and quarterback Matthew Stafford is providing the leadership the team was looking for when they surrendered three draft choices and their starting quarterback to acquire him. But, while the Rams may be at the top of the heap, so too could their opponent in Los Angeles today be considered a top team in waiting.
The Arizona Cardinals have won all three of their games and come to Los Angeles today as an underdog in a perfect spot to beat the Rams who may have this week’s performance flattened by last week’s dominance over the defending Super Bowl Champions.
The public has checked in with their three favorite plays off the Week Four card, they are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-6½) over the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs (-6½) over the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers (-6) over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
As for the Qoxhi selections, those picks are now posted on this site and if a Bullet Play develops in the final hour before kickoff it will be added to the list of recommendations by 9:45 a.m. Pacific Time.
