NFL Week 4 Matchups

Check out the tiny road favorites on the Week 4 slate. Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers are 3-0. But they’re only laying 2.5 points on the road against the Minnesota Vikings. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia Eagles are also expected at press time to be 2.5-point faves at the New York Giants.

The Vikings are not a very good football team: They just lost to the Chiefs, of all teams. But the Giants might be even worse. It took a botched drive from Washington at the goal line to hand New York its first win of the season, while the Eagles simply crushed Detroit.

Much tougher to call at –2.5 on the road are the Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco. Seattle barely survived a back-and-forth affair last week against the Bengals, and still failed to cover. The Niners are already suffering injuries, but they’ve still got a pretty good defense, unlike Cincinnati.
