APC Week 4 NFL Picks: Faith in Packers to beat Bills remains despite weird week 3

New, comments

It seems like most people are treating last week’s results as a fluke when picking Packers-Bills.

The Green Bay Packers lost a game in which they were favored last week in Washington, while the Buffalo Bills beat the Minnesota Vikings on the road despite being a 17-point underdog. With those results in mind, one might expect that a decent number of fans and writers for both teams would expect a Bills victory, right?

This week, that’s not what we’re seeing. Although APC and Buffalo Rumblings readers’ picks are closer than the Las Vegas point spread — a ten-point edge in favor of Green Bay — they’re still in favor of the Packers. Furthermore, we have another unanimous pick for the Packers to win this Sunday from the APC staff, with all 13 writers choosing Green Bay as the straight-up winner.

Here’s a look at our picks for this week’s games, which also feature unanimous selections of the Jaguars over the Jets, Eagles over Titans, Chargers over 49ers, and Chiefs over Broncos.

FanPulse Survey Results

As mentioned earlier, APC’s Fanpulse group feels good about a Packers win, but they’re not as confident as bettors in Vegas with an average margin of victory being just half the point spread. Bills fans are also predicting a Packers win, by an average of a field goal.

APC picks: Packers win by 5 points
Buffalo Rumblings picks: Packers win by 3 points
