Who’s ready for some Thursday Night Football? The Week 4 NFL live TV and online coverage will start in the Steel City as the struggling Baltimore Ravens take on the Ben Roethlisberger-less Pittsburgh Steelers in a key AFC North battle. If there has ever been a “do or die” or “must win” situation so early in a season, it is Thursday for the Ravens. Coaches and fans can say what they like, but if your team falls to 0-4 on the season, you can pack it in!
While nothing is ever etched in stone, the odds of a team making the playoffs in the NFL after starting a season 0-4 is slim to none. Of course the optimistic fan will say “If we lost 4 in a row, we can win 4 in a row!” That’s true, but when you start 0-4 you almost take your fate out of your own hands because now not only does your favorite team need to go on a long win-streak, you have to hope that everyone else in your division goes on a losing streak.
Starting 0-4 may happen to all four teams winless teams this weekend. The 0-3 Detroit Lions face the Seattle Seahawks on ESPN’s Monday Night Football and odds makers believe that Seattle will roll to an easy win as they are listed as a 10 point favorite. If the Lions can’t win this weekend, the risk of starting 0-5 is very realistic as they square off against Arizona next week.
It’s hard to believe fellow gamblers but we are already at the end of the first quarter of the NFL season. It has been a profitable one so far here at Sports Odds Daily and hopefully it has been for you as well. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out our quick tips guide on Amazon.
