Free Week 4 NFL Predictions


Everything is back to normal for our Sportsbook.com writers. After a week in which they agreed on all four games, they are back to disagreeing this week.

Despite their disagreements, they have both had a decent start to the season with each guy picking seven winners to just five losers through three weeks.

Here’s how they breakdown Week 4.

Arizona Cardinals @ New York Jets

Mike: Jets fans are getting anxious after an ugly home loss to New England and a road loss at San Diego in the last two weeks. Coach Eric Mangini needs to right the ship this week heading into a bye, but that means Brett Favre is going to have start limiting his turnovers.

Arizona has stayed on the East Coast this past week after losing at Washington 24-17. The Cardinals have the more explosive offense with veteran Kurt Warner throwing the ball well, but I think the desperate Jets even up their record at 2-2 in front of the home crowd.

Prediction: NY Jets -1.5

Cras: I loved the Arizona Cardinals for this matchup before I saw the debacle the Jets were involved in last Monday night. With the exception of the first defensive play of the game when they returned an interception for a touchdown, the Jets looked bad.

Now they return home to play the Cards and legendary quarterback Brett Favre, who has looked every bit as bad as the rest of the team, is limping around the practice facility with a sprained ankle. That’s all the news I need to back the Cardinals offense in this one.

Predicition: Arizona +1.5

Cleveland Browns @ Cincinnati Bengals

Mike: Backers of the Cleveland Browns are wondering how this preseason Cinderella pick is 0-3 straight up and 1-2 ATS. This is a big game for both teams, but it’s most important for Browns’ quarterback Derek Anderson who will likely lose his starting job with another loss.

Cincinnati almost beat the New York Giants last week and that is factoring into this spread. A big key in that game was quarterback Carson Palmer, and he should have another very good game against this Browns secondary. Cincy is 6-1 in this matchup straight up and 5-2 ATS. They get the job done again.

Prediction: Cincinnati -3.5

Cras: Neither team seems worthy of your money but if you’re a Cincinnati fan, at least the offense showed signs of life last weekend. Palmer passed for 286 yards with receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh catching for 146 of those yards.

The story picture in Cleveland isn’t any prettier but this matchup might be exactly what the Browns need. Anderson is fighting for a job and threw for 578 yards against the Bengals last season. If the Browns can’t get the passing game going this week, they may not get it going this season.

Prediction: Cleveland +3.5

Green Bay Packers @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Mike: Green Bay is coming off a tough loss versus Dallas and now they know that cornerback Al Harris is likely lost for the season. Good thing that quarterback Aaron Rodgers has played well even in defeat, and that gives the team confidence playing in a hostile environment.

 Tampa Bay is historically a very good home team, 7-2 ATS in their last nine regular season game. The Bucs would like to play their game this week which is running the ball and solid defense, but Brian Griese will be forced to throw often if Green Bay starts scoring early. I’m taking the Pack to bounce back.

Prediction: Green Bay +1

Cras: No-one expects Tampa Bay to do anything, yet they just keep winning. And this could be another game where the money keeps being piled on the opposition but the Buccaneers spoil the party.

It has the makings of a great game with the Tampa defense going against the Green Bay offense. I like everything Rodgers has done for the Packers so far in his tenure but I think this game just might be won by the Bucs defense.

Prediction: Tampa Bay -1

Washington Redskins @ Dallas Cowboys

Mike: Washington is coming off two solid home wins over New Orleans and Arizona. Quarterback Jason Campbell has been very steady this year with 4 TDs, no picks and a 100 quarterback rating, and he needs to stay calm against the Dallas pass rush.

Dallas is coming off that big Sunday night win at Green Bay and the team hopes there isn’t a letdown, even a small one. The Cowboys have had trouble in this matchup the last three years, just 2-4 straight up and 1-5 ATS. The Skins can keep this one within double digits.

Prediction: Washington +11

Cras: The Cowboys are putting up a lot of points and now oddsmakers expect them to blow out the Redskins. If this were a Week 2 line, with the Redskins coming off a horrible showing in New York, I could understand the big spread but the Redskins have played good football the last two weeks.

Washington always seems to play the Cowboys tough, losing 28-23 in Dallas last season and beating them in the final game of the regular season in what was a meaningless game for Dallas. With the way the Redskins play the Cowboys, it’s hard to ignore the points.

Prediction: Washington +11
