In a little over 2 weeks, we are going to have the NFL back in business and the 2020 season officially underway. We all know who the favorites to win the Super Bowl are at the moment, but we also know that this season is going to be different than what we are used to. Based on what we have seen from other sports that have already started back, some teams do a better job of playing under the new conditions than others, which means that we might be ready to see some upsets happen and underdogs rise this coming season. Right now, all we can do is speculate, which is exactly what we are doing here. We are going to look at each week of the upcoming season and pick out the best games on the schedule. With that in mind, let’s jump ahead to Week 4 so you can plan ahead your bets against their NFL odds.
NFL Betting Preview for Games in Week 4
Indianapolis Colts at Chicago Bears
This is an absolutely fascinating matchup, as it features a pair of teams who have had their issues at the QB position. The Colts were stunned when Andrew Luck retired prior to the start of last season, but they ran with Jacoby Brissett and had some success, but not enough to stop them from going out and getting Phillip Rivers on the offseason. In Chicago, Mitch Trubisky took a massive backward step last season, and while he is still on the books, he will be battling Nick Foles for the #1 spot this season. it is going to be fun to see how both of these teams make out.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Tennessee Titans
While one bad season is disappointing for any fan base, it can often prove to be nothing more than a blip on the radar. The same is true for a team that had a great season. It can be a sign of a turning point or simply a year where a lot of things went right. An 8-8 season for the Steelers is always considered a disappointment, but when you consider the injuries that they had last year, it is actually not that bad. The Tennessee Titans went to the AFC Championship Game and will be looking to build on that, but was that season a one-off?
New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs
One of the biggest headlines this offseason was Tom Brady leaving the Patriots to head to Tampa Bay. The belief was that a major step backward was in the works for the Patriots, but the signing of Cam Newton and his performance in camp has some people questioning their demise. Still, the Patriots have had several key players opt out of the season, so we may be looking at offsetting moves. This will be a real test for them, as it’s always tough to win at Arrowhead, and especially against the defending champions.
Philadelphia Eagles at San Francisco 49ers
Last season the NFC was pretty wide open, and we are expecting more of the same this time around. The San Francisco 49ers are looking to erase the memory of their Super Bowl loss and get back to the top of the mountain, but there are some very good teams they need to get past in order for that to happen. The Philadelphia Eagles look to be a good bet to be one of the 7 teams to make the playoffs in the NFC and this game will serve as a good test as to where they stand.
