NFL 2017 Regular Season - Week 4 Picks

Sunday's NFL action kicks off at Wembley at 2:30 (BST), with the New Orleans Saints taking on the Miami Dolphins, before the full slate of games gets underway at 6pm. The London game is the first of our weekly bets, together with two bets from the late kick-offs at 9pm, with the combined treble paying just shy of 7/1.

New Orleans (-3) v Miami Dolphins @ Evens

New Orleans had a tough start to the season, losing back-to-back games against Minnesota and New England, before finally finding their winning form on the road in Carolina, 34-13, last weekend.

Miami missed the first week of the season due to Hurricane Irma, before winning on the road against the LA Chargers in week two, before flopping to the New York Jets, in week three. That result, against a very poor Jets team, should set the alarm bells ringing for would-be Dolphins backers. Whether Miami is just a poor-team, remains in question, but one thing is for sure, their recent travel schedule will be taking its toll. In the past two weeks, they have travelled over 10,000 miles, a gruelling sequence of trips that can only be more of a hinderance to this game, than advantage.

As such, the New Orleans Saints are taken to make it back-to-back victories, covering the -3 points in the process.

Denver Broncos (-3) v Oakland Raiders @ Evens

This AFC West clash could go a long way in determining the outcome of the division and it is the Denver who are taken to make home advanatge count in this one.

The Broncos started with back-to-back wins at home to begin the season, before coming unstuck at Buffalo, last week. However, they look much improved under second season quarterback, Trevor Siemian, whilst the defense is performing at an elite level and should be able to contain the Raiders, who only managed to score 10 points on the road in Washington, last Sunday.

Oakland are capable of playing against anyone in the NFL on their day but this is a tricky road trip and with just a spread of -3 to cover, the home team are taken to pick up the win.

San Francisco (+6.5) @ Arizona Cardinals @ 20/21

This game sees the 0-3, 49ers, take on the 1-2, Cardinals, in a game that is a must-win for both teams.

It does look like a clash between two of the NFL's more poor sides and the Cardinals are understandably favourites, given they are at home. However, it shouldn't be overlook that their only win of the season came against another very poor team, in the way of the Idianapolis Colts. Quarterback, Carson Palmer, has been a shadow of his former self and it could be that age and recnt injuries have caught up on 37-year-old, add to this the season ending injury to running back, David Johnson, and the Cardinals struggles on offense don't look set to be remedied anytime soon.

In contrast, the 49ers are three games in to a new regime under head coach, Kyle Shanahan, and despite a 41-39 defeat to the LA Rams, last week, they put in an offensive performance that suggested that the first win of the seaso can't be too far away.

Add to the dynamic of this game that San Francisco played on Thursday, compared to the Cardinals, who played on Monday night, and the impact that the difference between 10 and six days rest and preparation could have on the outcome of this game, should not be underestimated. As such, the 49ers getting +6.5 points here looks too big and they are the pick to cover.
