The NFL returns to London on Sunday for the first of three games this season, as the Miami Dolphins take on the New York Jets in an AFC East divisional matchup as 2-point betting underdogs at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
The Dolphins head overseas still reeling from a 41-14 blowout loss at home to the Buffalo Bills in Week 3, recording their second straight outright loss while pegged as betting favorites.
The loss drops Miami to 2-5 straight up in their past seven entering Sunday morning’s Jets vs. Dolphins betting matchup at Wembley Stadium, and leaves them with just one against the spread victory in their past eight games.
The surprising Jets own the top defense in the NFL over the first three weeks of the season, surrendering just 13.7 points per game so far en route to a 2-1 SU record.
However, New York saw a five-game ATS win streak come to a halt last week in a 24-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles as 3-point chalk, dropping them to 2-4 SU and ATS in their last six as favorites.
New York has picked up SU wins in four of their last five road meetings with Miami, and are a perfect 3-0 ATS in their last three overall against the Dolphins with the point total playing UNDER in seven of their last nine clashes.
The Chicago Bears continue the search for their first win of the season when they welcome the Oakland Raiders to Soldier Field for a Week 3 showdown as fading 3-point underdogs.
The Bears opened as 1-point underdogs, but have since seen the line steadily move in Oakland’s favor.
Chicago was pummelled 26-0 in Seattle last weekend, extending their current SU losing streak to eight games, including five home contests.
The Raiders are coming off their second outright win as betting underdogs in as many weeks, topping the Browns 27-20 in Cleveland as 3.5-point underdogs, ending an 11-game SU road losing streak over which they went 5-6 ATS according to the OddsShark NFL Database.
Oakland has had limited success historically in the Windy City, going 1-3 SU, 0-3-1 ATS, in their last four visits to Chicago dating back to 1984.
In other NFL Week 4 betting action, the Baltimore Ravens will be gunning for their first SU win of the season when they battle the Pittsburgh Steelers minus Ben Roethlisberger on Thursday Night Football as 2.5-point road chalk, while the winless Detroit Lions take on the Seahawks in a Monday Night Football matchup as heavy 9.5-point underdogs.
