Week 4 in the NFL and it's been a long season already! I've got the TAB odds sitting next to each of the games to prove I'm going my own way with these picks and not sticking with the favourites because I'm a grown man... and I make grown man decisions on the NF (Not a lot else though).

First London game this week folks so that will throw a spanner in the works for two pretty nasty teams.

Please like my Facebook page and join in the banter Mpeard Sports.

Dolphins ($3.70) at Bengals ($1.25)
Marc's pick: Bengals 33, Dolphins 10. Dolphins looked terrible in nudging past the Browns, Bengals are due a big win.

Colts ($1.70) at Jaguars ($2.05) (London)
Marc's pick: Jaguars 23, Colts 17. - Another London special. These games are so tough to pick as both teams have to travel across the Atlantic to play, so who travels better out of two pretty weak teams? I'm taking the Jaguars because they played the Bills there last season so the team is aware of what's about to happen.

Titans ($2.70) at Texans ($1.42)
Marc's pick: Texans 27, Titans 20. - The Loss of JJ Watt gives me the chills! I think they have enough in the tank to beat the Titan this week, Week 4 in the NFL and it's been a long season already! Ive got the TAB odds (Can change)sitting next to each of the games to prove im going my own way with these pick and not sticking with the favourites because im a grown man... and I make grown man decisions on the NFL! (Not a lot else thou) First London game this week folks... so that will throw a spoanner in the works for two pretty nasty team! Please like my Facebook page and join in the banter Mpeard Sports!

Dolphins ($3.70) at Bengals ($1.25)
Marc's pick: Bengals 33, Dolphins 10. Phins looked terrible in nudging past the Browns, Bengals are due a big win...

Colts ($1.70) at Jaguars ($2.05) (London)
Marc's pick: Jaguars 23, Colts 17. - Another London special...these games are so tough to pick as both teams have to travel to London to play.... So who travels better out of two pretty weak teams? Im taking the Jaguars because they played the Bills there last season... so the team is aware of what's about to happen?!?

Titans ($2.70) at Texans ($1.42)
Marc's pick: Texans 27, Titans 20. - The Loss of JJ Watt gives me the chills! I think they have enough in the tanks to beat the Titan this week... I'm not sure how many other teams they will beat without him though.

Browns ($3.70) at Washington ($1.25)
Marc's pick: Washington 23, Browns 10. - Or should I be backing the Browns after Terrelle Pryor has announced the will win the remainder of their games? Yikes! This was the game I had circled, RG3 comes back as a Brown and destroys the team that abandoned him! Yeah? Nah.

Seahawks ($1.70) at Jets ($2.05)
Marc's pick: Seahawks 17, Jets 13. - I don't trust the Seahawks are this good yet and I don't trust the Jets are this bad yet. My close score line suggests that.

Bills at Patriots (no TAB odds on offer)
Marc's pick: Patriots 22, Bills 9. The loud mouth Rex vs the Steely Belichick - The Patriots have the only "Bill" winning this week.

Panthers ($1.37) at Falcons ($2.30)
Marc's pick: Panthers 30, Falcons 23. - Come on man! The Panthers have faced a Broncos defence and a Vikings defence, other than the Eagles defence, that's as good as they get this season. Panthers put up better numbers vs the Falcons defence and win this one in front of the Atlanta faithful.

Raiders ($2.40) at Ravens ($1.52)
Marc's pick: Ravens 22, Raiders 20. - Such a tough one to pick, Ravens have a good defence and an average offence, Raiders have a good offence and an average defence, so I'm going with the Ravens to squeak out another "Just" win at home.

Lions ($1.62) at Bears ($2.20)
Marc's pick: Bears 17, Lions 13. - I'm sorry but these two teams have both been a massive let down three games into the season. Remember it's a divisional match up so expect it to be a close disappointment. But I'm backing the Bears. For no other reason than they have to be better than they have shown so far and Detroit just seem to wilt at the sign of any pressure.

Broncos ($1.57) at Buccaneers ($2.30)
Marc's pick: Broncos 30, Buccaneers 13. - I give the Bucs 13 points because they are playing at home, otherwise the Broncos defence gives them nothing.

Rams ($3.70) at Cardinals ($1.25)
Marc's pick: Cardinals 37, Rams 23. - This is a must win for the Cardinals if they want to live up to the preseason hype. The Rams after being so bad in the season opener, lead the division. The Cardinals know this and will be hell bent on beating them in front of the Bird Gang supporters in Arizona.

Saints ($2.55) at Chargers ($1.47)
Marc's pick: Saints 37, Chargers 35. - High scoring game that the Saints have just enough octane in the tank to outlast a charging Chargers team. Imagine how good the Daints would be if they had a defence.

Cowboys ($1.82) at 49ers ($1.92)
Marc's pick: Cowboys 27, 49ers 10. - The 49ers are going to catch me out again soon, I can just feel it. Here's hoping it's not this week. They play at home against a Cowboys team without Tony Romo or Dez Bryant, which would normally scare me off. However Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are a new breed of young talent who don't seem to be rattled by the big stage. A generation of player that wants it all and now so I give them the edge.

Chiefs ($2.60) at Steelers ($1.45)
Marc's pick: Steelers 30, Chiefs 21. -
Screw playing against the Steelers this week. 1 - They are at home, 2 - They were embarrassed by a rookie QB last week in a loss, 3 - Le'Veon Bell returns and will be playing like a fast moving freight train all game.

Giants ($2.70) at Vikings ($1.42)
Marc's pick: Vikings 23, Giants 17. -
This Vikings team is for real. Well the defence at least is. So long as Bradford stays healthy, this team can win. Can Bradford stay healthy though? He does for this game and they win.
I'm not sure how many other teams they will beat without him though...
