NFL PRESEASON INFORMATION

The NFL preseason can present some nice betting opportunities. I never load up on one of these games because of all the substitutions in the second half, but I will make some small plays.


Here are some angles I'm looking at this week.

The Patriots were upset by Detroit last season 26-10 and Belichick is 39-37-6. Detroit's Patricia is 1-3 in the NFL preseason.


The Eagles were upset 26-23 by Tennessee last season. Tennessee's Vrable was 0-4 last NFL preseason.


Seattle was beat by Denver 24-27 in week 1 of the regular season. Carroll is 33-16 in the preseason.


Minnesota lost 30-20 to the Saints last season. Zimmer is 14-7 in the NFL preseason.


The Ravens Harbaugh is 30-15 in the preseason. The Colts used to lose consistently in the preseason, but since Reich took over he is 4-0 in the NFL preseason.


If your looking for quarterback depth, the Bears have a lot of experience behind Trubisky. Some others to mention are Houston, Detroit, Seattle, and Oakland.


My plays are all money lines for NFL preseason week one.

255 Patriots+120 Won 31-3

272 Seahawks+150 Won 22-14

275 Vikings+120 Won 34-25

Week 2 Plays 2-1 ATS

413 Chicago Bears at 414 New York Giants-2 Final NYG 32-13

I'm taking the Bears moneyline+115 as they are 6-1 straight up against New York and Chicago lost 30-27 to New York last season. Coaching records favor the Bears.

The Bears decided to not suit up one starter as the line moves to NYG-3 about an hour before the game. The Bears money line went to +140, so I got to watch Eli Manning and Daniel Jones chop up the Bears backups on defense. New York kept the first team defense on the field through the second quarter. The Giants up 19-3 before Bears get a late FG to make it 19-6 at the half. The Bears cut the score to 19-13 in the third, but a fiasco of plays  by the Bears let the Giants pull away.


My second pick is 419 New England Moneyline-110 against 420 Tennessee. Belichick won't play Tennessee in the regular season so this is a good time for payback of a 34-10 loss last year. This line has moved down, but have not seen a good reason for the move other than the home team getting points. The only other reasons look to be HC Vrabel's birthday on Wednesday, but that doesn't seem valid in the preseason and his birthday is on Wednesday and they don't play until Saturday. He is an ex-Patriot, but I do not see Belichick letting up here.

Patriots take care of business 22-17.


My third pick is 430 Minnesota moneyline-190 and the line is moving from -4 to -5. Minnesota lost 21-7 last season to Seattle and with Zimmer's preseason record, I have to back the Vikings at home here. Line has dropped to Vikings-3 and money line is -160 Sunday morning. I'm still staying money line. Minnesota 25-19
