I cannot wait to dive into my NFL week 4 picks next weekend and after watching a few surprises crammed into an action-packed Sunday, one can only expect the same from here on out. Week 3 of the NFL season saw the New England Patriots (2-1) get knocked off by the Buffalo Bills (3-0) in what was another thriller that saw Ryan Fitzpatrick step up for his team once again. At the moment, the Bills are all by themselves at the top of the AFC East and since they were the only team in that division to pick up a win on Sunday, they gained a game on everyone. The Bills are slowly becoming a great story and a solid showing in week 4 will show NFL betting picks experts that they might as well get used to Buffalo being in the picture this year.
The Bills have the easiest NFL week 4 picks matchup out of all of the teams in their division, which could prove to be a huge opportunity to create some breathing room between them and the rest of the AFC East group. Next Sunday at 1:00pm ET on CBS, the Bills will take on the Cincinnati Bengals and the early NFL week 4 point spreads have Buffalo listed as a 3-point road favorite over Andy Dalton and company. This should be an easy win for Buffalo, who could very possibly be 4-0 before the rest of their divisional rivals kick off their week 4 schedules. The Bills had not beaten the Patriots in almost 10 years, so we know they are feeling good about themselves heading into the heart of the 2011 NFL season and I think they will be feeling even better after they beat the Bengals on Sunday.
The New England Patriots will head west to face an Oakland Raiders (2-1) team that just beat the New York Jets (2-1) by two touchdowns, while running all over them in the process. The Pats are 5-point NFL week 4 picks favorites in this game and I believe that they will get back on track. Oakland does not have the tools to exploit New England’s secondary like Buffalo did and that will be obvious. The Miami Dolphins (0-3) will also be traveling to the West Coast to face the San Diego Chargers (2-1) at Qualcomm Stadium at 4:00pm ET on CBS, and after watching Miami collapse against Cleveland, it would be foolish to even expect the Dolphins to cover as 8-point NFL betting spreads underdogs at Bodog Sportsbook. The Jets will have the toughest matchup out of all the AFC East teams next week when they take on the Baltimore Ravens (2-1) on Sunday Night Football at 8:20pm ET on NBC. The Ravens are coming off a huge blowout win over the Rams and will be looking to hand the Jets their second straight loss next week. I believe that the Jets and Dolphins will lose their next game, but I expect the Patriots to bounce back in a big way.
