NFL Preseason Free Betting Pick: Denver Broncos at Seattle Seahawks

08.14.2015     10:25 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Denver +5 at Seattle O/U 36.5
Recommendation: Denver

The betting markets are infatuated with Pete Carroll’s preseason track record in Seattle; installing the Seahawks as five point favorites against the Broncos.  And it’s easy to understand why the markets love Carroll in August, particularly playing at home.  They won their two home preseason games last year by 41-14 and 34-6 margins, won 40-10 and 22-6 in home preseason games in 2013, and won 27-17 and 21-3 in home preseason games in 2012.

But that’s all in the rear view mirror now – the conditions that existed in Seattle in recent years just don’t exist this year.  That makes the Seahawks a poor favorite for their 2015 preseason debut on Friday.   What has changed?  A LOT!

Fresh off back-2-back Super Bowl appearances, the Seahawks have nothing to prove in August.  Seattle has been one of the deepest teams in the league in recent seasons, giving them great depth in the second half of these preseason games.   That’s not the case anymore, with the Seahawks up against the salary cap – this is NOT a Read more

Pete Carroll said those starters that will play will only see a few snaps including quarterback Russell Wilson. The Seahawks are currently -5 home favorites over the Broncos.

NFL Preseason Handicapping:Broncos' veterans to see limited action vs. Seahawks

The Denver Broncos are planning to sit a number of their veterans, including Peyton Manning, for tonight's preseason opener at Seattle. The Seahawks are currently -5 home chalk. 

"Obviously, we have some guys with some nicks that have missed some time that we have to make some decisions on. We have a few guys that we'll talked about that have a lot of birthdays, so we'll talk about them too," Kubiak said.

NFL Preseason Free Betting Pick: Washington Redskins at Cleveland Browns

08.13.2015     10:42 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly

Washington at Cleveland -2 O/U 37.5
Recommendation: Over

We’ve got all the makings of a relatively high scoring game in Cleveland tonight.  Last year’s preseason meeting was a 24-23 game that flew Over the total, and there’s no reason to expect a dramatically different result tonight.

There’s a legitimate battle for the Browns starting QB job between Josh McCown and Johnny Manziel, regardless of Mike Pettine’s comments to the contrary.  Expect both guys to get an extended look this evening, with McCown likely to play a full quarter while Manziel could get two full quarters worth of action.  Veteran backup (with solid preseason histories) Connor Shaw and Thaddeus Lewis round out the QB depth chart.

That’s bad news for Washington’s banged up secondary, with numerous key players expected to sit this evening.  By the second half of this game, Redskins head coach Jay Gruden won’t have many good options defensively against the Browns downfield passing game.

But Washington is primed to score a handful of touchdowns here themselves, with one of the better QB Read more

NFL Preseason Handicapping: Lions' starters to see limited action

08.13.2015     08:21 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Detroit head coach Jim Caldwell said his starters will see limited time during tonight's preseason opener vs. the NJ Jets. The Lions are -3.5/-4 home favorites.

"Typically, (players) know what to expect out here, after awhile," Caldwell said. "They know what the scheme looks like, they have an idea of what stunts they may get, they have an idea from, obviously, working through the entire spring against a guy that's lined up across from them, they have a pretty good idea of what his moves are, what his strengths are.

"This game is going to give us an opportunity to work against guys that we don't know that well, that we haven't taken an inordinate amount of time getting prepared for, so you'll see them adjust and adapt, and that's important in this game. So that's the great part about it."

NFL Gambling News: Kyle Shanahan takes over as Atlanta offensive coordinator

08.12.2015     08:19 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan is on his fourth gig in seven years as he takes over the Atlanta Falcons' offense. Of his seven seasons as OC, his offenses ranked in the top 10 in yards per game four times. Here's an article about Shanahan implementing his new scheme in Atlanta.

Kyle Shanahan - Offensive Coordinator
2014 - Cleveland, 324.6 ypg (23rd)
2013 - Washington, 369.7 ypg (9th)
2012 - Washington, 383.2 ypg (5th)
2011 - Washington, 336.7 ypg (16th)
2010 - Washington, 335.9 ypg (18th)
2009 - Houston, 383.1 ypg (4th)
2008 - Houston, 382.1 ypg (3rd)

“It’s always a work in progress,” Shanahan said. “You throw a lot at them. You do it in OTAs. You do it again in training camp.

“It’s a lot easier in training camp than it was in OTAs because it’s not their first time hearing it. We are not where we want to be yet and you always want to keep getting better.”
