Here Are the Top NFL Preseason Week 4 Betting Predictions
— Jacksonville Jaguars (@Jaguars) August 31, 2016
Jacksonville at Atlanta (-3.5)
When: Thursday, September 1, 2016 at 7:00 PM
Where: Georgia Dome
Analysis: The Jacksonville Jaguars will look to record consecutive preseason wins after beating Cincinnati 26-21 in Week 3 behind Chad Henne’s 75 passing yards and one touchdown. Henne will once again get the majority of snaps with the starters out in this matchup.
The Atlanta Falcons will look to get their third win of the preseason after getting smacked around by Miami in their humbling 17-6 Week 3 loss. Matt Ryan passed for 129 yards with one interception in the loss. Veteran backup Matt Schaub will get the start in this preseason finale. Simply put, I’m going with the Falcons to get the SU win and ATS cover as Matt Schaub outplays Jacksonville’s Chad Henne. The Falcons are playing at home and have a bunch of backups that are still looking to make the regular season roster.
My Pick: Atlanta 27 Jacksonville 21
L.A. Rams at Minnesota (-4.5)
When: Thursday, September 1, 2016 at 8:00 PM
Where: U.S. Bank Stadium
Analysis: The Los Angeles Rams will look to win their third game of the preseason following their 17-9 loss to Denver in Week 3. Veteran Case Keenum passed for 77 yard in the loss. Backups, Sean Mannion and Jared Goff will split time under center in this contest.
The Minnesota Vikings will look to finish the preseason unbeaten after beating San Diego 23-10 in Week 3 behind Teddy Bridgewater’s 161 passing yards and one touchdown. Backups, Joel Stave and Shaun Hill will split time under center. With Bridgewater suffering a serious injury this week, I suspect all head coach Mike Zimmer wants to accomplish in this affair is to escape unscathed, making the Los Angeles Rams the pick to get their first preseason win and cover the spread in the process.
My Pick: Los Angeles 21 Minnesota 20
San Francisco at San Diego (-3)
When: Thursday, September 1, 2016 at 10:00 PM
Where: Qualcomm Stadium
Analysis: The San Francisco 49ers will look to rebound from their humbling 21-10 Week 3 loss to Green Bay that saw backup Driskel limited to just 43 passing yards on four completions. Driskel and Christian Ponder will split time under center in this affair. The San Diego Chargers will look to rebound from their 23-10 Week 3 preseason loss to Minnesota that saw Kellen Clemens pass for just 77 yards on nine completions. Clemens and Mike Bercovici will split time under center in this preseason finale.
I think the best pick for this preseason finale is to simply play the Over. Neither one of these teams plays much, if any, defense. With a ton of backups playing for both sides, I like this contest to turn into a sloppy, fairly high-scoring affair that easily tops the 40- point O/U total.
My Pick: San Diego 28 San Francisco 27
