The Vikings, widely regarded as genuine Super Bowl contenders, went down to a humiliating 27-6 loss at home to the Buffalo Bills last week, in what was probably the shock result of the season so far. They haven’t lost back-to-back regular season games since December of 2016, but that run faces a severe examination away to the Super Bowl favourites.
Kirk Cousins is completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 965 yards, seven touchdowns and two interceptions. He also has two or more touchdown passes in seven of his last 10 games.
The Vikings will surely rally after last week, so they might be worth backing with a Point Spread of +7.
Pick: Point Spread – Minnesota Vikings +7.5 @ 17/20 with Coral
Baltimore Ravens @ Pittsburgh Steelers (Sunday)
The Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1-1) host the Baltimore Ravens (2-1) at Heinz Field on Sunday night.
The Steelers started the season with a 21-21 tie with a spirited Cleveland Browns, then were just edged out 42-37 by the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2. Pittsburgh secured their first win on Monday in scraping past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30-27, although they very nearly blew a 20-point lead in doing so.
Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger threw for 353 yards, three scores and a pick against the Buccaneers.

It has to be noted that the Ravens two victories this season to date consisted of a 47-3 drubbing of the hapless Buffalo Bills and a 27-14 win over a less than impressive Denver Broncos. That said, you can only beat what’s in front of you. Their one reversal was sandwiched between the two victories, when they went down to the Cincinnati Bengals 34-23.
In that last game against the Broncos, Ravens QB Joe Flacco managed 277 yards and a score.
This might not be a game to stake the family fortune on, but we’ll take the Steelers to cover the Point Spread of -3.5.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Denver Broncos (Monday Night Football)
The Denver Broncos (2-1) take on the Kansas City Chiefs (3-0) at the Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Monday evening local time.
There’s a vast gulf in the scoring records of these teams, with the Chiefs having registered at least 38 points in all three of their games this season to date. By contrast, the Broncos haven’t scored 30 or more points in a game in just over a year (17 September 2017 to be precise), which means they’ve gone 17 straight regular season games without reaching that total.
The key factor in the Chiefs excellent start to their campaign is Patrick Mahomes, who has completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 896 yards, 13 touchdowns and zero interceptions. Mahomes is averaging a touchdown pass every 7.1 pass attempts to date this season.
The momentum all looks to be with the Chiefs here, so unless the Broncos can find their scoring touch then there’s a strong case to be made for the Chiefs to cover the Point Spread of -4.5 and will be the last of our NFL Week 4 betting picks.
