NFL Preseason Betting: Minnesota starters to play a lot more vs. Buffalo

08.15.2013     12:41 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Minnesota at Buffalo -3.5 O/U 43

Under head coach Leslie Frazier, the Minnesota Vikings haven't put much effort into Week 1 of the preseason (0-3 SU/ATS, 7.3 ppg). They are however 2-0 SU/ATS in both Week 2 games under Frazier (super small sample but worth noting). According to quarterback Christian Ponder, who took only two snaps last week, the offense will be getting a lot more work Friday in Buffalo.

"These next two games are crucial for us as an offense and for everybody because we're going to get a lot of snaps," he said.

NFL Preseason Gambling: Jets' Sanchez to start vs. Jaguars

Jacksonville at New York Jets -2.5 O/U 38.5

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez will start again on Saturday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This on the heels of what Rex Ryan called a "brutal" performance by rookie Geno Smith during yesterday's practice.

"It was brutal," Ryan said. "That was Geno's worst day, obviously.The ankle is part of it. That's way too many picks. He didn't look comfortable today. It was a bad day. ... We've seen guys have bad days, but this was a really bad day."

"I think it went just about as well as it could," Sanchez said of the first phase of camp. "I felt good. I thought I threw the ball well. I was accurate. I did my best to take care of the ball. I moved the offense down the field. I think we did that in spurts."

NFL Preseason Betting Free Pick: Carolina Panthers at Philadelphia Eagles

Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Carolina at Philadelphia -3 O/U 44
Recommendation: Over

I could do this write-up in a single sentence.  The Eagles ran 86 offensive plays last week in their preseason opener.  86 plays!  Their game against the Patriots saw the total get steamed up, and it still went over by two scores.  The markets have pushed this total higher, but not high enough.  Chip Kelly’s ‘one play every twelve seconds’ offense merits totals in the high 40’s, even in preseason.

Carolina is going to play at the Eagles pace tonight.  The Panthers have practiced playing an uptempo style on both sides of the football all week.  Philadelphia’s defense couldn’t stop anybody last week – horrible tackling, a limited pass rush, poor play from their rebuilt secondary, along with concerns about both depth and conditioning.  A fast paced offense combined with a suspect defense is a strong recipe for Overs!

Both teams have Read more

NFL Preseason Gambling: Brady injures knee but could play Friday vs. Tampa Bay

08.15.2013     07:35 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Tampa Bay at New England -3 O/U 40

New England's Tom Brady went down with an apparent knee injury during yesterday's practice but the team downplayed the incident and claims that Brady could play during Friday's game against Tampa Bay. The Patriots opened 3.5-point favorites but after Brady left practice most sportsbooks took the game off the board. The Pats are currently -3 (even)/-2.5 (-120).

"He basically got kicked," a source said. "It isn't like his knee collapsed or somebody rolled up on him. Is there a chance he could be sore and they decide to hold him out of practice? Yeah. Could they decide he shouldn't play in the game? Probably. But they could also decide it's just soreness and he needs to work it out. It's really nothing."

NFL Preseason Betting: Buffalo's Kolb to start vs. Minnesota

Minnesota at Buffalo -3.5 O/U 43

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone announced that quarterback Kevin Kolb will start Friday's game against Minnesota.

"Kevin probably would have started the first game if he wasn't injured or hurt, and EJ would have come in and then EJ would have started this game," Marrone said. "But because of injury, obviously EJ started and I'm going to get Kevin his start. You can't call it a competition and then all of the sudden not have the quarterbacks getting those starts."

NFL Preseason Betting: Lions and Browns square off in preseason and regular season

Detroit at Cleveland pk O/U 41.5

Detroit talks about Thursday's game plan against Cleveland. Note that the two teams meet in Week 6 of the regular season.

“That does come up,” Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. “There’s things that you sort of feel like you like against a defensive scheme or an offensive scheme that you don’t want to show. But over the course of the season, you’re going to show all those things anyway. The main thing is execution. You want guys communicating well, executing, and you want to see — and I’ve said this a bunch of times in preseason games — you want to see players win not scheme win.”

“I think we’re going to sprinkle some stuff here and there and throughout the preseason,” Bush said. “But obviously, we’re not going to give away

NFL Preseason Handicapping: Bears still adjusting to Trestman

San Diego at Chicago -6 O/U 38

Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears offense continue to adjust on the fly to first-year head coach Marc Trestman.

‘‘We’re just trying to get plays in,’’ Cutler said. ‘‘We’re just trying to rep plays and see what they look like. We’re not really worried about the defense that we’re going against or trying to pair up a certain play with the defense.

‘‘There are some plays that we’re running that normally you wouldn’t want to run against that coverage, or that defense, or that front. There’s ups and downs. Some of the plays look good. Some of the plays not so good. It’s just dealing with those and coming back and bouncing back for the next play.’’

NFL Preseason Gambling: Eagles to play starters first half vs. Panthers

08.14.2013     11:38 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Carolina at Philadelphia -3 O/U 42.5

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly said the starters will play the entire first half of Thursday's game against Carolina. Quarterback Nick Foles will start and split time with Michael Vick.

"We'll see how that plays itself out," Kelly said. "Does that mean (the QBs will alternate) by series, or whatever? It depends on how many snaps and how long the series are ... if we get a lot of reps in the first quarter," Kelly might go to subs at some point in the second. 'Some of our 'ones' only played nine or 10 snaps the other night."

NFL Preseason Betting: Browns' Chudzinski talks playing time, quarterbacks

Detroit at Cleveland pk O/U 41.5

Cleveland Browns first-year head coach Rob Chudzinski said his starters will play into the second quarter and possibly the entire first half in Thursday's home tilt against Detroit. Chudzinski also said he's not ready to name the team's starting quarterback as Brandon Weeden and Jason Campbell vie for the job.

"I think it's still close," Chudzinski said. "We are finding out every game. These games are important opportunities for guys to show what they can do."
