2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools Week 4 Recap

By Jeff Stinger

After a brutal three-week stretch to start things out, the 2022 NFL season was kinder to our Nitro Survivor Pools in Week 4. There weren’t as many shocking upsets compared to the last three weeks of the campaign, which is great news for those left standing in the aftermath of a challenging beginning. However, not everyone was spared from the axe of elimination this past week. How many survivors are left standing after four weeks of action?

Nitrobetting is ready to equip its bettors with the latest news, odds, and special features for the entire duration of the 2022 NFL season. This time, let’s take a closer look at what transpired in the intense Week 4 action of the 2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools campaign.

2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pools: Week 4 Recap


Not Entirely Safe from the Savagery


Nitrobetting continues its season-long quest of delivering the best NFL survivor experience on the web with its Nitro NFL Survivor Pool contests with a total purse worth over 10,730 mBTC (~$209,000) across eight unique survivor pools.

All things considered, Week 4 was relatively tame in the upset department. However, there still were several casualties in our survivor pools no thanks to losses by the three B’s that had identical 2-1 records heading into the week: the Browns, Broncos, and Buccaneers. 

The huge blowout home victory by the Niners on Monday Night Football also dealt the Rams’ backers in Week 4 an early elimination. The defending Super Bowl champs have lost four straight games on the Niners’ home turf, which is a fascinating stat to consider in future survivor seasons. Note to self: avoid taking the Rams at San Fran and the Colts at Jacksonville in 2023.

What’s concerning in terms of our survivor pools’ headcount, though, is that the high-rolling Nitro Pool might not even make it to the midway point of the season. There are only six survivors left in the Nitro Pool, which is exactly one-eighth of the population of 48 entries in that pool at the start of the season. Less than 20 percent of the next-highest-tiered MVP Pool’s survivors are still in the game as well, as the pool that began with 104 survivors is now whittled down to just 19 strong.

Perhaps the pool that’s had it the worst, meanwhile, is our lowest-tiered buy-in pool, the Prospect Pool. Close to 30 participants failed to make the cut in Week 4, as the Prospect Pool joins the rest of the Nitro NFL Survivor Pool population with double-digit survivors, down from 120 survivors in Week 3. It goes to show that nobody is safe even though Week 4 wasn’t as chaotic as the three weeks that preceded it.

Here’s how the 2022 Nitro NFL Survivor Pool landscape looks after Week 4:

NFL Survivor Picks for Week 5


One of the better survivor matchups on Week 5 Sunday is the London Game between the Giants and the Packers. The Packers are currently pegged as (-8.0) virtual home favorites to beat the surprisingly 3-1 Giants, who’ve been fortunate of having a relatively easy schedule to start the season. Do note that the game kicks off at 9:30 AM Eastern Time, so lock in the Packers ahead of time and only if Green Bay hasn’t been picked yet. 

Week 5’s early-afternoon slate also has a couple of tasty matchups to consider. Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are out for blood after a loss in Week 3 and will host the Falcons as (-9.0) favorites to beat an Atlanta team missing its starting running back, Cordarrelle Patterson. Meanwhile, and perhaps the best time to lock in Buffalo as a survivor pick, the Bills welcome the Steelers in Orchard Park. Buffalo is a heavy (-14.0) favorite to beat a 1-3 Pittsburgh squad that will likely have rookie quarterback Kenny Pickett make his first NFL start against the Bills’ league-best defense. 

The Packers, Buccaneers, and Bills are all prized survivor picks this season, as all three of them will likely be favored to win most of their matchups all season long. However, waiting to lock in either of these three standouts might not be the best strategy. That being said, it might be worth considering pulling the trigger on one of these silver bullets already especially considering how brutal the survivor campaigns across the board have already been.
