At last, I’m back on track. Two weeks ago, I went an awful 7-9 with my weekly picks, but bounced back in a big way last week going 14-2. The only wrong picks I made were backing the Jets over the Eagles and Ravens over the Bengals.

Here’s my picks for Week 4, and I’m hoping for a similar result to last week. All of the lines are provided by OddsShark.

Houston Texans at Atlanta Falcons (-7)

The Falcons offensive line will be challenged by J.J. Watt and the strong Texans front-seven, but teams have had success limiting Watt and being productive. With all the weapons on offense for Atlanta, it’s hard to see Ryan Mallett outscoring Matt Ryan, even if Arian Foster does return.

Pick: Atlanta 24, Houston 14

Baltimore Ravens (-2.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers

I’ve picked the Ravens all three weeks and they continue to let me down, but I have to pick them again. Without Ben Roethlisberger, the Steelers offense will be far less effective, even with Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. Steve Smith Sr. will have another good game against a weak defense and the Ravens finally get on the board.

Pick: Baltimore 21, Pittsburgh 13
