The NFL kicks off Week 4 with the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens opened as a 2-point favorite, marking the first time the road team has been favored in this rivalry since November 2012.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will miss the game with a knee injury, and the line has climbed a point at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
The only other line under a field goal is the Miami Dolphins vs. the New York Jets in London. The game opened as a pick ‘em, but the Jets have emerged as a 1.5-point favorite. The Dolphins are 1-7 ATS in their last eight games, while the Jets are 4-12 SU in their last 16 divisional games.
The biggest road favorite this week is the Green Bay Packers. The Packers travel to face the San Francisco 49ers, and are currently an 8.5-point favorite. The 49ers are 4-0 SU and ATS in their last four games against Green Bay, dating back to Week 1 of 2012. However, the 49ers are also 1-5 ATS in their last six home games, according to the OddsShark NFL Database.
The biggest home favorite is the Indianapolis Colts, currently sitting at -9 against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts are 5-0 SU and ATS in their last five against the Jaguars, and 14-0 SU and 12-1-1 ATS in their last 14 divisional games.
The line with the biggest early movement belongs to Broncos-Vikings. The Denver Broncos opened as a 4.5-point favorite. That line has climbed as high as seven points at the sportsbooks. The Broncos are 9-1 SU in their last 10 home games, but 6-4 ATS. Over the last six seasons, the Vikings are 6-0 SU and ATS the week before a bye, which arrives in Week 5.
The New Orleans Saints host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. The spread is not yet available because we do not know the status of Drew Brees. He did rehab work with Dr. James Andrews, and seems intent on playing. Until his status is known, though, this will be a significant question mark. The Saints are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games against the Cowboys.
The week wraps up with the Seattle Seahawks hosting the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football. These two teams have only faced off five times since 1984, but the Seahawks are 4-1 SU and ATS. The Seahawks are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games against the NFC North.
