Six road teams are favored by a field goal or less as the NFL enters Week 4. Surprisingly, the Baltimore Ravens are one of those squads, listed as 2.5-point favorites over the Pittsburgh Steelers when they clash on “Thursday Night Football” at Heinz Field.
The Ravens are still seeking their first win of the season, going 0-3 and losing by an average of just 4.6 points through the first three weeks of the season, but odds makers have them beating a Steelers squad that will miss All-Pro quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Roethlisberger sustained a serious knee injury last week, and now the 2-1 Steelers will start veteran Michael Vick at home.
Along with that highly-competitive AFC North clash, office pool players have some very difficult decisions to make in Week 4. Picking a road team is risky, but squads like the Carolina Panthers, Oakland Raiders, and Green Bay Packers are riding hot streaks and might be worth a circle on your pool sheet.
The pool game is simple. Circle each team you believe will win, and tally up all of your correct answers. The player who picks the most games correctly wins Week 4.
In the event of a tie, e.g. two pool players have the same number of correct picks, the total combined score for the “Monday Night Football” matchup will serve as the tiebreaker. This week's game features the Seattle Seahawks and Detroit Lions.
