Games I Like:

Eagles -5.5 @ Arizona Cardinals

The Philadelphia Eagles continue to roll with a 4-0 record after rallying against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week at home. Now they will head west for a matchup with the Kyler Murray-led Cardinals, who are fresh off of a victory against the Carolina Panthers this week. 

While it’s still early in the season, the Eagles look like the best team in the NFC, and this matchup with the Cardinals is an opportunity to prove it. For whatever reason, the Cardinals have been much better on the road ATS than at home under coach Kliff Kingsbury. The Cards are 9-17 ATS at home compared to 19-7-2 ATS away from Arizona. 

Furthermore, undefeated squads entering Week 5 are 33-24-2 ATS in the last 20 years. The Cardinals escaped Carolina with a victory last week, and they look far from their best. The Eagles have shown no signs of slowing down after an early scare against the Jagas last week. Let’s stay the points with the birds here.

Sides I lean: 

Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens (first half ML)

I like the Ravens -3 in the full game as well, but the second half has plagued Baltimore all season. The Ravens’ offense is averaging 18 points per game in the first half of games, which ranks second in the NFL. The Bengals’ offense has sputtered this season, their recent wins are not against the best-quality of opponent.

The Bengals are averaging 10.8 points in the first half, which is 18th in the NFL, and the Ravens are primed to come out strong after losing last week while also looking for revenge against a division opponent.

Atlanta Falcons @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-9) 

The Falcons are perfect ATS this season, but look for that to come to an end today against a Brady-led team that has lost two games in a row. Via the Action Network, Brady vs. undefeated ATS teams in Week 3 or later last 20 years: 10-2 SU/ATS (5-0 SU last decade).

Brady has never lost to Atlanta and is 9-1 ATS in his career. Look for Tampa to right the ship here and win big.


That’s all for the betting primer! Be sure to check out the Football Friday Show above. What a great slate of games with plenty of different betting angles. I would like to note that in researching the games for this primer, stats, trends, and data were pulled from various outlets, including ESPN, Covers, and The Action Network, among others. These are all great resources for sports bettors, and I highly recommend you do your homework before placing a bet. Enjoy the games, everyone, and happy betting!
