For those of you who know, I apologize and for those of you that know my Survivor Pool Guide in Week 3 had a loser. I apologize to all and will attempt to close out this year strong for those of you still in Survivor Pools. For those that are buying back in or joining a new one, come on back every week, because this is usually a solid winning spot.
Last week I picked the Atlanta Falcons for a reason that I thought they were prouder than they showed and would jump back off that disgraceful comeback loss they had to Dallas. If you can remember the Super Bowl Odds -implosion Atlanta experienced against the New England Patriots, then you can take that times three because they just did that two weeks in a row.
It appeared the Falcons would be solid enough to make up for that embarrassment, but for my Survivor Pool Week 3 guide, I was wrong. So let’s move on to this week’s advice for moving on in your Survivor entries.
Week 4’s Rundown
For this week, I am going to give you a high-percentage chance to win straight up. This double-digit betting favorite at BetUS.com is the Los Angeles Rams playing at home and hosting the lame, depleted and soon to have another loss, New York Giants
Jared Goff for the Rams has been a pleasant surprise, and the Rams obviously figured out how to protect him long enough to complete a pass. He isn’t someone that would be high on the list to bet the sportsbook odds for NFL MVP, but he is doing a respectable job in the offense set up for him. He has to do a lot more to earn all that cash the Rams paid him.
Last week was tough after having a win close to locked up against the Buffalo Bills. A late, and marginal, pass interference call gave the Bills just enough to get in and steal a win from Los Angeles. It should be more of a game about confidence than a downer this week.

The Giants are powerless and will be looking to score more than 16 points for the 1st time this year, but it will not happen. The Rams’ D will be clamping down so this is the wrong week to expect this Giants team to show anything but how to lose.
The Giants are on quite a roll, having lost 13 of their last 15 games, and are currently the NFL’s second-worst in total offense. The only thing the Giants have going for them is that they get big points in the weekly pointspreads for the online bet. There are multiple ways to cover that, but it is still a loss straight up.
The Rams have scored at least 32 points in each of the last two weeks, and you can bet they aren’t slowing down long enough to recognize who they are pummeling all day,
It isn’t just a passing game that is getting the Rams through either as they are averaging 170 yards a game on the ground. They have a three-headed backfield that trades off between injury, hot hand, and coach’s preference. Rookie Cam Akers was the favorite to become a bell cow in this offense but was unimpressive early and then was injured.
Malcolm Brown stepped in for a week to look like he was the man that would stand as the No. 1 in the Los Angeles backfield. Well, that didn’t happen either and when he got hurt Darrell Henderson Jr. came in and looks to have a stronghold on it. Henderson has been fruitful and consistent over the last weeks, but as history shows, it can change at any time.
Take the Rams
The only thing that is a tougher call in this NFL game is which team to bet on the Week 4 betting lines. It is probably a stay-away game, but since BetUS has the Rams favored by 13 points in NFL odds the smart bet if you play would be the Giants. They will probably cover the spread, but it will probably be a back-door cover in garbage time. It still counts.
