On the latest episode of Bet the Edge, Jay Croucher and Drew Dinsick dish out their thoughts regarding the best way to capitalize on the surrounding injury reports at the QB position ahead of some meaningful Week 4 tilts.

Bet the Edge kicks off the program by watching a preseason angel’s fall from grace in the Los Angeles Chargers (-5.5) as they travel to face the dreadful Houston Texans. With LAC battling several key injuries on both sides of the ball, Drew decides that the Bolts are still a worthy play with a favorable matchup against the winless Texans. The pitiful New York Jets welcome back the man, the myth, the legend in QB Zach Wilson to face the Pittsburgh Steelers (-3.5). Jay estimates this as a lower scoring game with neither offense averaging 20 points per game in the 2022 campaign, and sees value in the under (40.5). The pair take a look at the New England Patriots marching up to Lambeau Field to duel against the Green Bay Packers (-9.5) with Brian Hoyer potentially as the QB1 while Mac Jones deals with an ankle injury. They find it difficult for New England to hang with the Pack should Hoyer be the starter in this one.

Bet the Edge will highlighting several more pivotal matchups throughout the week!
