Surprises were few among the ranks of the unbeaten football teams going into last weekends games, and of those three surprises, only the Packers and Cowboys survived, as the Steelers took their first loss of the year.

Green Bay and Dallas both came up with impressive victories on Sunday to run their records to 4-0 and stay as two of the four undefeated teams in the league.

The Cowboys again used a potent offense to defeat a lifeless St. Louis team while Green Bay ran their winning streak to eight, four from last year and four this season, with a win over Minnesota.

Indianapolis is last years Super Bowl winner and they have played very consistently so far this season as they spotted Denver a ten point lead and then outscored the Broncos 38-10 the rest of the way to secure the victory.

While all of those teams are strong, none of them looks prepared to challenge the New England Patriots who looked virtually unstoppable again on offense in their Monday night win over Cincinnati on the road 34-13.

Equally as impressive for the Pats was the way their defense handled one of the top offenses in the league in the Bengals. They only gave up 13 points and had Carson Palmer and Chad Johnson looking confused for most of the night.

The season is only four games in and many things can happen, but heading into week 5 there are only four teams that can claim to be perfect so far.…

Usually every season in the NFL, by this time of year odds makers have a strong grasp on all the teams and can accurately put out betting lines that have the public shaking their heads.

This year, however, several teams are making it difficult on the sports books.

The New England Patriots not only might be the best football team of all time by the end of the year, but they are taking gamblers along for the ride as sports books have not come up with a spread high enough this year that the Pats could not cover. Undefeated on the season, and undefeated against the spread, very unusual.

On the other side of the coin, there is the Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams, and while they have covered a spread or two between them, for the most part it has been easy money for gamblers who just pick against these two win less teams.

The Dallas Cowboys are another team that has been putting up so many points this year, that it is difficult for odds makers to make lines high enough for gamblers to get scared off and go the other way.

Unlike previous seasons, there seems to be a major distinction between the elite teams in the league and the bottom dwellers, not as many as usual fall into the mediocre category, and that is most of the time a deadly combination for sports books.

As long as the Patriots and Colts keep rolling, and the Dolphins and Rams stay miserable, it could be happy returns for gamblers for the first time in many recent NFL seasons.…
