Week 4 of the 2019 NFL season goes on with 13 games on Sunday. The bettors will have quite a homework to do, and it’s another interesting day for those who like to take NFL teasers. Hereof, we bring you all-important betting tips and trends for the matchups that look like the best choice on Sunday schedule.
Patrick Mahomes and Kansas City Chiefs are 3-0 SU and ATS on the season. Now, they visit the unbeaten Detroit Lions as 7-point favorites. It could be a tricky task for the Chiefs, but I cannot wager on the Lions to stay undefeated. Instead, I would tease the Chiefs by seven points.
Kansas City won eight of its last 11 games on the road including the victories at Jacksonville 40-26 and Oakland 28-10 in the first two weeks of the 2019 season. Patrick Mahomes has tossed for 1195 yards (1st in the league), ten touchdowns, and zero interceptions while completing 71.4% of his passing attempts.
Mahomes looks completely unstoppable, while the Chiefs’ receiving corps is doing a great job even though Tyreek Hill is sidelined due to an injury. RB Damien Williams is also injured, so LeSean McCoy will get a heavy workload. Still, the Chiefs’ O-line protects Mahomes well so the reigning MVP can find his targets.

The Lions opened with a 27-27 tie at Arizona and defeated the LA Chargers 13-10 and Philadelphia Eagles 27-24 over the last two weeks. Matthew Stafford has thrown for 831 yards, six touchdowns, and two interceptions, while Kerryon Johnson has 48 carries for 126 yards and a TD.
However, the Lions are allowing 269.3 passing yards per game (22nd in the league). Also, they don’t have enough weapons on the ground to take advantage of the Chiefs’ run defense that allows 6.2 yards per carry which are the most in the NFL. Detroit lost four of its last six games at home and is 3-6 in the last nine home contests as a dog.
The NFC North showdown at Soldier Field in Chicago will see the Minnesota Vikings going against the Chicago Bears. The hosts are listed as slight 1.5 favorites and I would tease them to 5.5-point underdogs. I think the Bears will win this game, and I’m pretty sure they won’t lose it by more than a field goal.
The Bears opened a season with a 10-3 loss to Green Bay. It was their third loss in the last 11 outings at home and the second that came by six or more points. The Patriots defeated the Bears 38-31 last season, but the Vikings are not the six-time Super Bowl champs.
Minnesota is just 1-4 SU and ATS in its last five outings on the road. Likewise, the Vikings are 1-5 ATS in their previous six meetings with the Bears. Last year, they lost both encounters with Chicago.
Furthermore, the Vikings rely on their ground game a lot, tallying 193.7 rushing yards per game (2nd in the NFL). They will have a tall task on this one, as the Bears’ run defense is the 5th-best in the NFL, surrendering just 68.7 yards per contest.
The struggling Denver Broncos are still winless in 2019, covering the spread just once in the process. They opened as 3-point favorites against the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2; 2-1 ATS), but the action on the visitors shortened it to 2.5 points.
The Broncos were terrible on both sides of the ball through the first three weeks. While it was quite expected offensively, nobody could say the Broncos will enter Week 4 without a single sack. Also, they haven’t forced a turnover yet.
Von Miller and Bradley Chubb will be after the Jags’ blood. Rookie QB Gardner Minshew could be in big trouble at Mile High Stadium on Sunday. Miller had 14.5 sacks last season, while Chubb added 12. Likewise, Miller has 98 sacks in his career, so the Broncos’ defense will have to bounce back at some point.
Furthermore, the Broncos lost six of their last seven games at home, but only one of those losses came by more than four points. Likewise, the Jaguars won just one of their last eight contests on the road. Therefore, I would tease the Broncos and take them as 4.5-point underdogs.
