Last week, for the second week in a row, my Colossus Bets syndicate for NFL Week Three went 4 for 7 meaning all involved took away a consolation. Happy days! Now it’s time for my Colossus Bets syndicate for NFL Week Four – the games are upon us and below are my selected picks.
I’m in it to win £50,000 so if you think these picks sound like a win-win situation, and you want to get involved, join my syndicate here.
CIN Bengals (1-6) @ ATL Falcons (1-6)
This game sees the two top 10 offenses VS the two bottom 12 defenses. It’s likely to be high scoring on both sides of the ball in the dome, and therefore will be close. It really could come down to which team has the ball on the final drive of the game.
PHI Eagles (1-6) @ TEN Titans (1-6)
Vrabel’s team isn’t pretty, but is ugly and scrappy, and has done well to win the last two. The Eagles are struggling to reach the heights of last season on both sides of the ball too. This could be quite an ugly game to watch, but neither team has shown this will be a blow out so I’m expecting it to be low scoring and close.
DET Lions (1-6) @ DAL Cowboys (1-6, 7-12)
Three games in to the season and I’ve still no idea who either of these teams are. Pressure is on Prescott to deliver with the Cowboys needing to make a decision on his contract at the end of the year. The Lions will be on a high after the Patriots win, but could come crashing back to earth against a much better defense. I imagine the game could be close, but that the Cowboys could win this by a touchdown.
BUF Bills (1-6) @ GB Packers (1-6, 7-12)
Was the Bills performance a freak result last week? Can Rodgers keep the Packers in contention on one knee? One thing we do know is that the Packers defense is yet to show the improvement many were expecting under Mike Pettine. There are a lot of unknowns in this game, meaning it could go either way but you worry about the support around Rodgers. Still it’s a Lambeau…
NO Saints @ NY Giants (1-6, 7-12)
The Giants offensive weaponry must be licking their lips at the prospect of facing the porous Saints. I’d suspect this could be the breakout game for Beckham after returning from injury. Another thing to note is Drew Brees outdoors in a windy New York is not the same as he is, in a dome. It’s likely to be a close affair but I can see the G-Men edging this.
SF 49ers @ LA Chargers (13-18)
The 49ers hadn’t started as well as some expected before Jimmy G went down with his knee injury. Now CJ Beathard steps in, and it’s the defense that’ll need to start showing more than they have up until now. The Chargers are always going to score points, and the 49ers won’t be able to keep up. I see this being a blow out for Chargers.
BAL Ravens (1-6, 7-12) @ PIT Steelers (1-6)
The Steelers won on Monday Night Football but it was still a scrappy affair, and the defense is still giving up 5.9 yards a play. Both offenses have no problem moving the ball but this will come down to which defense can come up with more stops. I’m going to favour Baltimore on this one.
