As expected, the Broncos routed the Raiders to close out week 3 of the 2013 NFL season. We now fast-forward to the present, as we study the upcoming action in the NFL week 4 picks 2013.
For starters, two teams will be enjoying bye weeks, which means there will be 15 games in this week’s schedule. Those teams are the Carolina Panthers and the Green Bay Packers.
Earlier in the week, we issued our picks for the Thursday night game between the San Francisco 49ers and St. Louis Rams. We now shift our focus to two 1 PM games happening on Sunday and their respective NFL odds and week 4 picks 2013.
First off, we’ve got a lopsided matchup happening at FirstEnergy Stadium, where the AFC North leading (2-1) Cincinnati Bengals take on the hosting (1-2) Cleveland Browns. NFL oddsmakers at Bovada list Cincy as only a -5.5-point favorite over Cleveland (+5.5).
If the last two weeks are any indication, the Bengals are beginning to hit their stride here in the early going. On paper, these teams are so unevenly matched that it’s hard to imagine the Browns will avoid losing this game by less than a touchdown.

Another NFL week 4 matchup ready for bettors to exploit is the one taking place at Ford Field, where the Chicago Bears (+3) are listed as three-point underdogs against the Detroit Lions (-3).
Jay Cutler and the Bears come into this game undefeated with wins over the Bengals, Vikings and Steelers. They possess one of the highest scoring offenses in the league and defensively, although they’ve struggled, they rank in the top 10 against the run.
The Lions, on the other hand, have wins over the Vikings and Redskins, but lost against the Cardinals in week 2. For my money, if you give me the Bears with a field-goal cushion against any other team in the NFC North I would take it every single free NFL picks time.
