Check out our NFL Picks: Week 4 Betting Odds Report for up-to-date info on line movements.

Jason Lake

Jason took three underdogs and three favorites with his NFL picks this past weekend. He was on the Giants (+1.5), Lions (+2.5) and Buccaneers (+9), with only Detroit coming through at the betting window.

The Cowboys (-3.5), Texans (-2), and Dolphins (-2.5) were his three chalk picks and Jason went 2-1 there, as Dallas smoked St. Louis at home and Miami came from behind to overcome Atlanta. 

Season ATS Record: 8-6-1

Season O/U Record: 0-0

Jordan Sharp 

Make that two straight Monday Night games that Jordan has correctly picked. He backed the Broncos to get the job done at home against the Raiders and they obliged with ease.

In the end, buying a half point didn't even matter. Jordan got a good jump on the NFL odds early, and Denver cruised to a 37-21 victory behind another monster day out of Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense. 

Season ATS Record: 2-2

Season O/U Record: 0-1

Joe Freda

The three plays that Joe recommended were the Titans (-3) and Bills (+2.5) on the spread as well as the UNDER 48 in the Cincinnati/Green Bay matchup. 

Tennessee pushed thanks to a last-minute touchdown from Justin Hunter, but Buffalo was disappointing in a seven-point loss to the Jets in New York. That UNDER play didn't work out either, with the Bengals and Packers involving themselves in a shootout, which the home team eventually won. 

Season ATS Record: 1-2-2

Season O/U Record: 0-1

David Lawrence

David was on three favorites for his Week 3 sports picks. That included the Vikings (-5.5), 49ers (-11.5), and Bears (-2.5).

In the two biggest surprises of the weekend, Minnesota and San Francisco both lost straight up at home and therefore obviously didn't cover the NFL odds. Chicago, however, looked very impressive in their 40-23 victory over Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers on Sunday night. 

Season ATS Record: 2-5

Season O/U Record: 0-0  

Steven Suarez 

Maybe I should just stick to picks on the spread. I fell victim to falling into another OVER trap with a Saints game and it came back to bite me.

To be fair, New Orleans did come through on their side of things, scoring 31 points, but Arizona only mustered up one touchdown in their crushing loss. You've really got to like what Rob Ryan has been able to do with this Saints defense so far this season.

Season ATS Record: 1-0

Season O/U Record: 0-2

Doug Upstone

Whenever you can get 19 points in the NFL, it's hard to pass up. That was the case in Week 3 when the Jaguars played in Seattle as monster underdogs in what was easily the largest football betting spread of the season up until this point.

But, the Seahawks didn't suffer any kind of letdown after the prior week's demolishing of San Francisco. They crushed Jacksonville 45-17 and ended up easily covering that humungous chalk.

Season ATS Record: 2-2

Season O/U Record: 0-0
