NFL Week 4 Picks

NFL Week 4 Picks

We get an NFC West rivalry to open the Week 4 action in the National Football League. The Thursday Night Football prime time battle has the St. Louis Rams hosting the San Francisco 49ers at 8:25 PM ET, on September 26, 2013, from the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, MO.

NFC top chalk 49ers off to a rocky start

Posted at most online sportsbooks as the preseason chalk to win the National Football Conference Championship, the San Francisco 49ers have opened the season with a 1-2 record. After a break out 34-28 win over the Packers on opening day, the 49ers were blown out in their next two games. The Niners traveled to Seattle and were scorched 29-3 by the Seahawks in Week 2 action and then got blasted 27-7 by the Colts at home last weekend. This is still a very solid football team.

St. Louis Rams: Also riding a two game losing streak

With a maturing Sam Bradford under center, and a defense that was expected to be one of the better units in the NFL, a winning season was forecast in St. Louis. A close 27-24 road win over the Cardinals in Arizona bolstered the optimism. It’s been downhill since then though as the Rams have lost two straight on the road. The Falcons defeated St. Louis 31-24 at the Georgia Dome back in Week 2 and the Cowboys busted up the Rams 31-7 last week. The Rams need some D here!

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
