Bet on 2019 NFL Week 4
We hit the one-quarter mark in the 2019 NFL regular season and all but two teams will have played four games at the conclusion of the week. Less than a month into the campaign and the New York Jets and San Francisco 49ers will have their bye week. At least two teams will be off every week until the league returns to a full schedule of games in Week 13. Does having an off week so early in the season hurt teams? It’s hard to say, but the Redskins and Panthers were first to sit last year and they both missed the playoffs with a 7-9 record.
Only one team in NFL history has advanced to the playoffs after starting a season 0-4, so it’s important for clubs to have at least one victory by the end of this week. The San Diego Chargers did the trick back in 1992, winning 11 of their final 12 games to win the AFC West by a game over the Chiefs. It’s hard to win in the NFL and it’s harder to win a bunch of games in a row. And if a team hasn’t won a game through four weeks, they probably aren’t that good anyway.
The betting week gets underway on Thursday night with an NFC matchup between Green Bay and Philadelphia featuring quarterbacks with plenty to prove this season. With Nick Foles out of the picture, it falls on Carson Wentz to not only play well but to also play an entire season. Wentz was having an MVP year in 2017 until a knee injury allowed Foles to emerge as Super Bowl MVP. A back injury put Wentz on the shelf after 11 games last season.
Rodgers returned from a broken collarbone that cost him more than half the previous season and played in every contest last year, but the Pack missed the postseason for the second straight time. Now, at age 35, Rodgers will have to break in a new head coach who’s just a few years older than he is.
The New England Patriots have owned the AFC East by owning the AFC East. They added to their record of consecutive division titles by winning their 10th in a row in 2018. And they finish off a stretch of three straight against division foes with a trip to Buffalo on Sunday. The Pats entered 2019 with a 15-3 record against their division counterparts over the last three seasons. They’ll try and extended their winning streak over the Bills in Buffalo to eight straight.
The Sunday night game has the potential to be a good one with a pair of division winners squaring off. The New Orleans Saints saw their 10-game winning streak come to an end with a visit to Jerry’s World last season. They also managed a season-low point total in the 13-10 loss to the Cowboys. With both clubs expected to be hanging around the playoff picture, the outcome of this one will have repercussions come playoff tie-break time.
If everything goes according to plan in Cleveland, there will be a new player in the AFC North. The Browns didn’t finish in last place last season and they are looking to improve more this season. They’ll get their first chance in Week 4 when the division plays against each other. The Browns ended a five-game losing streak to the Ravens last year with a Week 5 overtime win, one of four Cleveland games that went past regulation time.
The betting week concludes with a Monday night clash between the Bengals and Steelers. Now that Vontaze Burfict and Antonio Brown are no longer around, will this matchup be as intense? My guess is that it will be since the North always seems to produce some heated contests.
