MINTY BETS: We're entering week 4 of the NFL. I'm Minty Bets, here with Pam Maldonado and Jared Quay. And we're here to give you our best bets on the board. Let's start with you, Pam. What's your bet?

PAM MALDONADO: I'm looking to take Vikings +105 on the moneyline at home. This is a situation where you can't just look at the score line, you have to look at the details. And the details say that Cleveland was tied at the half with Houston. In came Davis Mills, who replaced Tyrod Taylor from injury. Well, they allowed Tyrone Taylor to throw for 90% completion, 125 yards, one passing touchdown, and one rushing score. And then the other quarterbacks that they faced was a rookie quarterback in Chicago under a Matt Nagy offense, which does say a lot, and they lost to Kansas City, where they allowed 8.5 yards per pass, 324 yards.

Well, now, you're getting Kirk Cousins at home, in a dome, in a place where he is unbelievable as an underdog. 6-1 against the spread as a home dog. And Baker last week, Baker Mayfield, he was sacked five times on 43 touches to Chicago. Too bad Chicago didn't have an offense to capitalize on that, but the Vikings do their fourth-best in quarterback sacks and have a great passing quarterback in Cousins. Gave me the home dog who has a better quarterback and the better pass rush.

MINTY BETS: Wow, I love that pick, and that's the trickiest game on the board for me. So I'm going to look to the Texans-Bills over 47 as my best bet this week. Now, we know the Texans defense is poor, and the Bills can definitely score. I mean, they scored 43 points alone against Washington last week. But as stout as the Bills defense is, I think that the Texans can contribute to this total here. But I think Buffalo will be doing all the work. So I like the over, 47. Jared, what do you have for us?

JARED QUAY: Pam's taking Kirk Cousins, which we know can mess us up. And you're betting on Davis Mills? I mean, I'm worried about this, because I'm taking the Cowboys. And every time I take the Cowboys, they just don't cover. They're undefeated against the spread this year, and their offense looks amazing, so I have to take them here, OK? They're playing against a Carolina Panthers team that doesn't have Christian McCaffrey. I think their defense is really the strength of their team.

But in the modern-day NFL, I think a good offense beats a good defense because of all the penalties and the system plays. And so I really think Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, I mean, they're loaded on offense. So this could be a high-scoring game. But I also like the Cowboys to cover -4 and 1/2.
