Week 4 of the NFL is upon us and we can only hope it lives up to the hype of week 3. There are a number of stat and data-based tools to helps us untangle every match-up; who to choose and who to avoid. Last week his picks went 0-3, not good at all, but we’re giving him a chance to redeem himself; our go-to guy to get the picks is RJ Bell(@RJinVegas on Twitter).
Underdog: Jacksonville Jags +2.5 vs. Indianapolis Colts (in London)
Off the bat RJ is giving the advantage to Jacksonville. This game has a spread less than a field goal so it’s pretty much pick the winner although they are 2 pretty even teams. But the special factor that gives us betters the edge, Jacksonville plays in London every year and its the first time for the Colts ever playing there. On top of that, they’re not a very good road team.
Best Bet: Detroit Lions -2.5 at Chicago Bears
In the bears last 25 home games, they have only covered the spread 5 times which isnt good at all because numbers don’t lie. It’s important to realize these trends when making bets, you just need to learn how to recognize them. Since the Lions new offensive coordinator was hired, Jim Bob Cooter (awesome name), Matt Stafford has thrown 26 touchdowns and only 4 interceptions! Those numbers are great and no one is talking it. Best bet is the Lions for this game.
Big Game Pick: Minnesota Vikings -5 hosting NY Giants (Monday Night Football)
We’ve started 0-3 on Monday Night Football. RJ is stubborn and he’s still picking this game for some reason. Both the public and professionals are undervaluing the Vikings at this point. With the brand new stadium built for the crowd noise, they’ll be rocking and it’ll play into favor of the Vikings. Even though they’ve lost their starting quarterback and running-back, RJ is still picking Minnesota for this game.
