NFL capsules for Week 4

By William Hill  ( 


Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals

Week 4 starts Thursday night as the last two No. 1 overall picks square off in an otherwise unappealing matchup. The Jaguars (0-3 SU and ATS) are looking for the first win and first cover of Urban Meyer’s tenure. They let a nine-point third-quarter lead slip away last week against the Cardinals, failing to cover as big underdogs. The Jaguars led 19-10 but ultimately fell 31-19,

committing four turnovers, including one for a touchdown. The Bengals (2-1 SU and ATS) are coming off an impressive 24-10 win over the Steelers, holding Pittsburgh to just over 4 yards per play. The lookahead line was Bengals by 1.5, but their surprise start coupled with the Jaguars’ ineptitude have this line all the way up through the key number of 7 to 7.5. The total is 45.5.

Washington Football Team at Atlanta Falcons

Washington (1-2 SU, 0-3 ATS) is looking for its first cover of the season, facing the Falcons (1-2 SU and ATS) in a pick-’em game after neither team has done much to inspire confidence in bettors. The Falcons won 17-14 on the final play of their last game, coming back to defeat the Giants despite being outgained. After a disastrous opener and a misleading final score against the Bucs in Week 2, the Falcons have played respectably despite being 1-2 and having been outscored by 46 points. Washington has been one of the more disappointing teams so far, its only win coming after a controversial offsides call against the Giants extended the game. Washington will be looking to rebound after allowing 481 yards and 43 points to the Bills. Chase Young was a front-runner for Defensive Player of the Year coming into the season but has yet to record a sack. The total is 48.5.
