Pete Prisco’s NFL Week 4 odds, picks: Cowboys rout Browns, Chiefs roll past Patriots, 49ers edge Eagles

Picking NFL games so far in the early season hasn’t been as challenging for me as in years past. I went 9-7 against the spread last week for a season record of 29-18-1, which is good by any standards. My straight-up record is 33-14-1.

On the Pick-Six Podcast, where we pick our best bets every week, I went 4-2 this past week and I am a sizzling 13-3 with my best bets. That includes a loss with the over in the Ravens-Chiefs game by a half a point in a game that had no business going under.

Let’s keep up the hot start and I offer one big tip as we head to Week 4: Play the overs. Until they can show me otherwise, the NFL defenses stink this year.

Week 3 notes: Eagles running out of excuses for Carson Wentz, Dave Gettleman’s hot seat, Josh Alllen MVP, more

After a week of questions about whether Carson Wentz has regressed in Year 5 as the Philadelphia Eagles franchise quarterback, there weren’t many answers in the Week 3 tie to the Cincinnati Bengals. Sure, he scampered for the game-tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter. He also missed a wide-open touchdown pass earlier in the frame that probably would have won the contest. And three overtime possessions—which is nearly impossible with a 10-minute OT period—all ended in punts.

At the end of three weeks, the Eagles are still winless. Wentz is better now than he was in the first two weeks, but still not good. And the City of Brotherly Love just did all the sister-kissing it could against a Bengals team that’s miserable in close games.

“You’re going to miss a couple and you’re gonna make some plays and things happen,” an even-keeled Wentz told reporters after the game.

NFL picks, predictions for Week 3: Packers handle Saints; Bengals bury Eagles; Steelers top Texans

NFL game picks and predictions for Week 3 of the 2020 season are tricky now that desperation is setting in for the remaining winless teams.

Of the 11 teams that enter Week 3 with 0-2 records, all but two are underdogs this week based on the point spreads. They’ll be fighting against those odds knowing an 0-3 start to the season is all but a fork in what a few weeks ago was the promise of a fresh start.

The pair of winless teams entering Week 3 as favorites to win are the Eagles and Falcons against the Bengals and Bears, respectively. Both have the advantage of playing at home. The odds also suggest the Dolphins and Vikings have strong chances to pick up their first wins of the season based on the tight lines for their games against the Jaguars and Titans, respectively.

With that as the background, below

Carson Wentz discusses the challenge of remaining confident after Eagles’ start

Wentz discusses the challenge of remaining confident originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

Carson Wentz pronounced his confidence intact Wednesday coming off two of the worst games of his life.

Keeping it intact may be the next challenge.

“This business, this game, confidence can turn on people real quickly,” he said. “And for us, it’s going back to what you know. It’s believing in yourself. It’s the entire body of work ever since you were a kid and how you train, how you work, how you prepare. There’s going to be rough times, there’s going to be rough patches. But guys just gotta lean in. I think we have a really good group of guys in this locker room that lean in on each other and trust each other and encourage each other no matter what the outside world’s saying or feeling. We trust each other, we stay together and

Analyst: American Eagle’s Aerie Could Be a $3 Billion Business

It’s been clear for some time that American Eagle Outfitters(NYSE: AEO) best-performing business is its Aerie lingerie chain, and though revenue for the brand was down slightly in the first quarter due to store closures necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, demand remained strong and far outstripped that for the American Eagle brand itself.

That sort of dynamic has persuaded at least one analyst that Aerie could become a $3 billion business over the next five years for the apparel retailer.
