  • The New York Jets won at Pittsburgh for the second time ever and QB Zach Wilson caught a TD pass

  • For the second time in three weeks, the Baltimore Ravens were squandering a double-digit point lead

  • These and other unusual outcomes highlight the NFL Week 4 betting roundup

The NFL Week 4 betting roundup is showing that it might be time to go against tradition when it comes to wagering on certain teams.

For one thing, the Baltimore Ravens are no longer safe as houses with a fourth-quarter lead. And speaking of unsafe, Mike Tomlin’s long run without a losing season as coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers is in serious jeopardy.

So could be the starting positions of quarterbacks Baker Mayfield (Carolina Panthers) and Carson Wentz (Washington Commanders) if they aren’t soon engineering a change in fortune for their teams. Especially when you consider that third-stringer Bailey Zappe played for New England and the Patriots covered against the Packers in a 27-24 loss to Green Bay at Lambeau Field. Not to mention the fact that Dallas Cowboys backup Cooper Rush is 3-0 straight up and against the spread since taking over for the injured Dak Prescott.

Time Running Out for Tomlin?

Since he took over as coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2007, Mike Tomlin has never endured a losing season. Neither of Pittsburgh’s other Super Bowl-winning coaches, Chuck Noll and Bill Cowher, could make such a boast.

There were back-to-back 8-8 campaigns for Tomlin in 2012-13 and another 8-8 season in 2019. However, it’s looking more and more likely each week that this season, Tomlin’s good fortune could be running out. Oddsmakers seem in favor of this development. Pittsburgh’s number in the NFL win total odds in set at 6.5 games. The under provides a betting line of -120.
