Records as of 1995.
Best NFL preseason Week 4 over bets
Dallas Cowboys (11-5 SU, 13-4 O/U in Week 4)
Points for in 2013 preseason: 18 ppg
Points allowed in 2013 preseason: 17.25 ppg
The Cowboys looked pretty good in their Week 3 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Dallas prevailed 24-18 with Tony Romo going 13-for-18 with 137 passing yards and a pair of touchdown passes. The game finished just under the 43.5-point total and moved Dallas to 2-2 O/U in the preseason. The Cowboys are the No. 1 'over' team since 1995 posting a record of 13-4 O/U in the final game of the preseason schedule, including a Week 4 victory for 'over' bettors one season ago. Dallas closes out its preseason against the Houston Texans Thursday.
Philadelphia Eagles (5-12 SU, 12-5 O/U in Week 4)
Points for in 2013 preseason: 22.33 ppg
Points allowed in 2013 preseason: 21.33 ppg
The Eagles are 5-0 O/U in Week 4 of the past five preseasons and played over the total in Week 3 versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. Philly was victorious by a count of 31-24 and racked up 452 yards of offense in the process. Michael Vick has been named the Eagles starting QB, but backup Nick Foles was a very efficient 10-of-11 for 112 yards in relief against the Jags. The New York Jets host the Eagles in each teams' final preseason tilt.
Best NFL preseason Week 4 under bets
Detroit Lions (10-7 SU, 5-12 O/U in Week 4)
Points for in 2013 preseason: 24 ppg
Points allowed in 2013 preseason: 16.66 ppg
Quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Kellen Moore led the Lions to a big 40-9 Week 3 victory over the New England Patriots and improved to 2-1 O/U through their first three preseason games. The pair combined to go 21-for-37 and 316 yards passing and three TDs as they picked apart a hapless Pats secondary. The Lions are on the road versus the Buffalo Bills in Week 4. Their only 'under' thus far this preseason has also been away from Ford Field.
Kansas City Chiefs (7-10 SU, 6-11 O/U in week 4)
Points for in 2013 preseason: 17.33 ppg
Points allowed in 2013 preseason: 17.33 ppg
The new-look Chiefs played over the total in Week 3, but played in a pair of low-scoring games in their first two times out this preseason. New QB Alex Smith played very well and looks to be settling in nicely with new head coach Andy Reid. The defense has kept the Chiefs in each of their preseason games and has only given up four TDs thus far. The Chiefs are home to face the Green Bay Packers in their final tune-up for the regular season.
