Survivor League Week 4

There are sixteen games being played this week, and thirteen have a spread under four points. The three heavy favorites this week are the Chargers, Packers, and Eagles. It’s a difficult week for survivors.

My Pick (2-1) – Los Angeles Chargers

Looking at the Chargers’ schedule, this is by far the best week to use them. While there are concerns about Justin Herbert, he practiced in full on Thursday, and it looks like he will be ready to play Sunday. However, I like this pick even with Chase Daniels.

The Texans are a decent team this year. While they are still at the bottom of the division, they’ve been competitive in every game so far this season. However, welcoming the Chargers to town this week, they will remain winless. LA is a much more formidable opponent than any of the other teams the Texans have faced thus far.

The Chargers have been underperforming, and after a tough loss against Jacksonville, LA has the perfect opportunity to get right in Houston. The Texans have the fourth worst offense in the NFL, and the Chargers should have a field day with them.

Alternative Pick (1-1) – Green Bay Packers

For those looking for a guaranteed play, the Packers are the way to go. I personally don’t want to burn them just yet, they have a very easy schedule, and there will be many more opportunities to use them.

However, if I haven’t convinced you that the Chargers are a good play, the ten-point favorite Packers hosting New England are a sure-fire pick.

Mac Jones is doubtful on Sunday, but even with him, they were only averaging 17 points a game. Averaging 17 a game, having faced the two worst defenses in the NFL. So while their own defense has been decent, the offense will be lucky to score.

Overrated Pick (2-0) – Philadelphia Eagles

I’ve warned bettors twice about chalky picks, and both times I was right — the underdog won.

This week, I’m telling bettors to use caution when betting against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Eagles are a great team, but the Jaguars are playing far better than anyone anticipated. I, nor anyone else, knows what to make of Jacksonville. They lost to the Commanders, shut out an Indianapolis team that just beat the Chiefs, and defeated an injured Justin Herbert. So they haven’t done anything impressive, but I’m excited to see what they can do against the first challenging opponent.
