If last week taught us anything, it’s that anything can happen on any given Sunday. Most of the betting favorites took care of business, posting a combined record of 9-5 against the spread (ATS), but there were several underdogs who were able to push back. The Houston Texans (+310 at Jacksonville), Indianapolis Colts (+300 at Baltimore) and Arizona Cardinals (+530 at Dallas) were all major underdogs playing on the road, yet all three teams not only covered the spread but managed to win their respective games outright.
Taking a look at the Week 4 betting odds at Bovada Sportsbook, there are a couple of intriguing underdogs that may be worth a moneyline wager. The New England Patriots (+250 at Dallas) are coming off their first win of the season and face a Cowboys squad that just got pushed around by the lowly Cardinals. You also have the Washington Commanders (+250 at Philadelphia) playing in an NFC East divisional battle, so you know they’ll give it their best effort. Underdog moneyline wagers are never easy but offer some potentially massive returns!
Carr Out, Jameis Takes the Wheel
If you’re thinking about betting on this week’s matchup between the New Orleans and Tampa Bay, you should know that there will be a different quarterback under center for the Saints. Already off to a 2-0 start to the season, Derek Carr helped New Orleans jump out to a 17-0 lead last week against the Packers before getting forced out of the game with a shoulder injury. Backup quarterback Jameis Winston filled in for Carr but was ineffective and the Saints ended up losing the game in heartbreaking fashion, 18-17.

New Orleans now prepares to take on Tampa Bay, but Carr is week-to-week and already ruled out for Week 4 versus the Buccaneers. Winston may be excited to get the start against his old team, but this change at the quarterback position could make things tough for New Orleans to put up points – something that was already a challenge for this offense. The Saints are three-point betting favorites in this matchup, which may be difficult to cover without their starting signal-caller under center.
The most anticipated matchup in Week 4 is an AFC East showdown between the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins have been the talk of the football world since hanging 70 points on the Broncos last Sunday. The offensive explosion was the most points scored by an NFL team since 1966 and has Miami as the top scoring offense in the league at an astounding 43.3 points per game (PPG). Sitting just behind them in the rankings are the Bills, who boosted their PPG average to 30.3 following last week’s blowout win over the Commanders.
Playing on the road in Buffalo, the Dolphins are currently +2.5 underdogs at Bovada Sportsbook. The public seems to love Miami in Week 4, with 90% of public money bet against the spread coming in on the Dolphins. It’s not hard to see why after last week’s performance, which also improved their record ATS to 3-0. If you’re worried about betting on Miami away from home, it’s worth noting that the Dolphins are a perfect 5-0 in their last five games on the road.
‘Under’ the Microscope
With all 3 of their games this season reaching a combined score of 51+ points, the Chargers are no stranger to high-scoring football. A potent offensive attack combined with a leaky defense is the perfect pairing for NFL fans looking to bet the over, but you may want to reconsider that strategy ahead of the team’s divisional matchup with the Raiders in Week 4.

The game’s total is currently set at 48 points, but there are a variety of reasons for this seemingly low number. For starters, the Raiders are averaging a measly 15 PPG this year, which ranks them 30th in the NFL. Raiders’ games have also stayed below the total in two of three opportunities this season, with the only over coming as a result of getting beat down 38-10 by the Bills. To make matters worse, Las Vegas starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo is currently in the NFL’s Concussion Protocol. If he’s unable to play, it’ll either be 37-year-old Brian Hoyer or rookie Aidan O’Connell under center for the Raiders.
Las Vegas isn’t the only team dealing with injuries, as the Chargers just lost WR Mike Williams for the season with a torn ACL. The 6’4” receiver is a major end zone threat for Los Angeles and the team will certainly miss his presence on offense. If all of this is still not enough for you to bet the under, consider this: the total has gone under in six of the last seven Chargers home games versus the Raiders. Consider taking the under in this one and hold on tight in this Week 4 battle out west.
