The first game of the NFL season from jolly old London gets underway early on Sunday morning with the Vikings taking on the Saints.

New Orleans is listed as the "home team" for this game, but the way the Saints are playing right now I would tend to believe that would really need to be playing at home for them to have any kind of an advantage on the Vikings today.

Minnesota showed some major resolve in beating back the pesky Detroit Lions last week at home, as the Vikings twice rallied from double-digits down to win 28-24 in a game they were favored by -6 points. The price is a little lower today and I feel this is a number Minny will be able to get on top of, as they have won 2 of their first 3 games under new head coach Kevin O'Connell whose offense and defense have both shown improvements from a season ago.

As for New Orleans, after an opening week comeback win at Atlanta which they trailed 26-10, the Saints have really taken a step back on offense with just 10 points scored in a home loss to Tampa Bay, and 14 points scored in last Sunday's road loss at Carolina.

I am a fan of the direction Minnesota is moving in with O'Connell now at the helm. I say go ahead and lay the field goal with the Vikings in this London Week 4 matchup between a pair of NFC foes, especially with aging vet Andy Dalton expected to take the snaps for the Saints.

The New York Giants opened the season with wins over bad teams. In their first test of the season, they lost to the Dallas Cowboys. Well, back to playing beatable teams.

The Giants will have no trouble beating the struggling Chicago Bears to bounce back after the Monday night loss.

The Bears won't have an answer for running back Saquon Barkley, who had 126 scrimmage yards (81 rushing, 45 receiving) and his second rushing touchdown of the season. Barkley leads the NFL with 408 scrimmage yards (136 per game) and is one of two with 80+ scrimmage yards in each of the first three weeks, along with Cleveland's Nick Chubb.

Barkley comes into this one with 50+ scrimmage yards in five of his past six at home, and registered 102 rushing yards in the last meeting. He also had 146 scrimmage yards (125 rushing, 21 receiving) in his last home meeting with Chicago.

Why so much info on Barkley? Because the Bears have allowed the second-most rushing yards through three weeks, having given up 471 yards on the ground.

If they can't contain Barkley, the time of possession will favor the Giants and Chicago won't have an answer.

Play New York.

My free NFL winner for Sunday is the Houston Texans over the Los Angeles Chargers.

The Bolts are easily the better team here, but they also just lost at home to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and we're talking about a Texans team that has been competitve through three games, covering all three. Dating back, they're also on a 5-0 ATS roll during AFC battles.

Whether or not Justin Herbert is able to play, or will play, let me tell you that coach Brandon Staley didn't think wisely by playing his franchise quarterback once the Jags put the game out of reach. I don't care that Herbert said he wanted to play, rib injuries are no joke.

And now he goes on the road to face a Texans team that has won the last two meetings and will be hungry to get its first win before Las Vegas gets its first.

And in the Chargers' plethora of injuries to three essential postions - left tackle Rashawn Slater, wide receiver Keenan Allen and edge rusher Joey Bosa - and things are a mess with this team right now.

I'm much more confident in a healthy Davis Mills, who completed 21 of 27 attempts for a career-high 77.8% for 254 yards and two touchdowns vs. 0 interceptions for 130.6 rating in his last year's 41-29 win over the Bolts.

Mills has 1,916 passing yards (273.7 per game) with 14 TDs against an interception for a 111.3 rating in seven career home starts. He also has 300 or more passing yards in four of his past six home starts, and will aim for his eighth straight at home with a 90+ rating when he hosts the injury-plagued Chargers on Sunday.

Take the points and be active in buying the half point if for some reason the number gets back in the range of +6 and +7.

Cleveland at ATLANTA (48)

By Bryan Rosica, Featured Handicapper

I am not going to lie, it has been a really rough week, but I will keep on moving forward and keep on putting in the work.

It is Week Four of the NFL season, and I am set to hand you a winner.

Jaguars vs. Eagles - 1:00 ET

Just need one winner to get things going in the right direction, and today's Jacksonville-Philadelphia meeting in the wet City of Brotherly Love will be that winner I am looking for!

If you are a fan of points being scored in the NFL, then today's interconference meeting between the Browns and the Falcons at Mercedes Benz Stadium is the game for you!

Cleveland has been remarkably consistent on offense with 26,30, and 29 points tallied for an average of 28.3 points per game. All 3 of the Brownies games played this year have landed Over the total.

Atlanta has also been remarkably consistent on offense with 26, 27, and 27 points scored in their 3 games this year, all of which have landed Over the total.

Look for the teams to get to their numbers again today as they trade points all afternoon long in a game that heads Over the posted price.

New England at GREEN BAY (40)

By Jay McNeil, Featured Handicapper

It has been a little sluggish for me this week, and I am in need of a winner.

100 Dimer on West Virginia came out of the gate slow and could not come back in their game against Texas.

Let's get after it early on Week 4.

No Guts, No Glory - I'm All In!

Time for me to close out the weekend with a rock-solid winner.

With Mac Jones dealing with an ankle injury that will keep him sidelined for this contest at Lambeau Field, going to look for this Patriots-Packers clash to land Under the total.

New England has been Under the total in 2 of their 3 games this year, while host Green Bay has landed Under the total in ALL 3 of their games played thus far this season.

Aaron Rodgers and his offense are very much a work in progress this season, as the Pack is averaging only 16 points per game this year.

This year's Patriots and this year's Packers have shown that they are going to struggle to consistently move the chains and score the pigskin, so my call is to play the Under in this Pat-Pack late afternoon clash.
