NFL Week 4 picks, predictions:

Draft Kings: Go with the Giants to cover vs. Bears

It writes: "The Bears offense has been incredibly unproductive, and the Giants haven’t allowed a team to score more than 20 points, a combination that points to a low-scoring game for Chicago. The Giants are finding their groove and should be able to cover the spread easily, particularly with the home advantage."

FanDuel: Bet the Giants to cover in Week 4 game vs. Bears

Adam Taylor McKillop writes: "Both the opening betting lines and ESPN's FPI metric agree this will be a close game, but one that finishes in favor of the Giants at home. The Bears' defense is the only hope Chicago has of sticking around in this game. Unfortunately, Chicago struggles mightily against the run and ranks 27th in Football Outsiders' rush-defense DVOA. Saquon Barkley will keep the Giants offense in rhythm." Take the Giants to cover against Bears

Bill Speros writes: "Another game featuring two coaches with their new teams. Both Brian Daboll (Giants) and Matt Eberflus (Bears) are rookies in their new gigs. This would have been the game of the year in 1986. Saquon Barkley has taken some of the pressure off Daniel Jones, who is in the midst of a make-or-break season. Take the Giants for your NFL Week 4 picks. They have started the season well."

Will Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears beat the New York Giants in their NFL Week 4 game?

BJ Rudell writes: "Meanwhile, Justin Fields has completed no more than eight pass attempts in each of his three contests this season, while Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet are largely afterthoughts. David Montgomery’s knee/ankle injuries could be addition by subtraction, assuming Khalil Herbert maintains the dynamism he’s shown since breaking onto the scene last year. Still, this remains a mostly one-dimensional offense."

CBS Sports: Bears have not fared well against the spread on the road

Tyler Sullivan writes: "Not much change here at all between when the line opened in the spring until now. There was a point on Sunday night where you could have laid the points with New York at +100, but now it's -110 on both sides of the line. Of course, more movement could come following the Giants' matchup with the Cowboys on Monday night, but for now, it's a pretty standard home-field line. Chicago pulled out a home win over the Texans in Week 3 but did fail to cover and are now 1-1-1 ATS on the year. They are also 1-4 ATS in their last five road games."

ESPN: Giants have a 65.1% chance to win the game

The site's Football Power Index gives the Bears a 34.5% shot at picking up the victory.
