2014-15 NFL Picks: Week 4 Against the Spread

Welcome to Week 4 of the NFL. Hard to believe after Monday, 25% of the NFL season will be over already. It seems like the preseason was just last week. Several teams (Colts, 49ers, Saints) that were expected to have strong seasons have struggled out of the gate during the first three weeks, but all is not lost for fans of those teams – wins this week will bring them even with plenty of season to play. The 49ers should especially know they are far from out of it. After starting 1-2 last season, including back-to-back blowout losses, they were able to rebound and finish 12-4 and barely miss the Super Bowl.

During Week 3, Teddy Bridgewater (Vikings) and Blake Bortles (Jaguars) both saw their first extended action in a real game and both will be starting this week. Unfortunately, I don’t see either of their first starts going well. Check out below for those and all of my Week 4 picks.

The Best Bet is the team I believe has the best chance to win and cover the spread. Home teams are in CAPS.
