Lorenzo’s Lock is a weekly series with our partner Gannett Media and part of Bet For the Win. It includes 3 picks for the upcoming NFL weekend.
NFL week 4 is here and so is Lorenzo with his picks, brought to you by Tipico Sportsbook! After an entertaining Week 3, Lorenzo is back to deliver his locks of the week.
BATTLE IN CALIFORNIA
Lorenzo’s first lock comes from a California battle between the 49ers and the Rams. The line in this game caught Lorenzo by surprise. The 49er’s opened up as favorites despite losing a Week 3 snooze fest and having a very poor start to the season. The reigning Super Bowl champs as underdogs against an underperforming team is bettors gold. San Francisco have some serious issues on offense with Jimmy G at the helm, and the loss of Trent Williams only makes things worse. There is a bit of a wildcard in this game with the fact that both coaches know each other so well, but the Ram’s offensive is just way too good to be getting points in the spread. The Ram's not only have the chance to cover, but the chance to win outright! For those reason Lorenzo is fading the 49ers.
Lorenzo is locking in Rams +1.5.
THE UNDER'S CLUB
Moving on to our next lock on a pick between a Titans vs Colts matchup. Under Total Points have been the popular pick this season and are also cashing out bet slips. This game has Under written all over it. The Colts offense has been abysmal and are the lowest scoring team in the league. On the other side, the Titians haven’t looked too good either, ranked 24th in the league for points scored. On top of their low scoring games so far, both teams like to run the ball. That usually chews up the clock keeping points off the board for a low scoring game. The Under TOtal Points line has hit in the Colts last eight games and six out of the last nine for the Titans. Is it a sign or a no brainer?
Lorenzo is locking in the Under at 43.5
HERE COME THE COWBOYS
Lastly, we go to the Battle of Americas teams where we see the hot Dallas Cowboys take on a cold Washington Commanders. Carson Wentz was sacked nine times against his former team in Week 2. Ouch! With Cooper Rush finding his form and the rest of the Cowboys team starting to heat up, we have a potential blowout on our hands! Look for Carson Wentz to have trouble in the pocket, with the Cowboys bringing pressure in the pocket early. Lorenzo see’s this one as an easy game for Dallas and for them to continue their streak.
We hope you fans are ready for Week 4's slate of games. Please enjoy the games and remember, Lorenzo's Locks are BOOSTED from +622 to +700 live in Tipico Sportsbook on desktop and in the mobile app on the App Store and Google Play store.
