NFL Preseason Betting Tips

NFL preseason games are certainly meaningless from a won/loss standpoint, but you wouldn’t know if from some of the coaches records. Did you know Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh is on a 18-0 SU and 17-1 ATS (plus a push) run in preseason games? Perhaps that’s why the Ravens are taking more than 70% of the bets and money on the road at Carolina in Saturday’s Week 2 preseason game, according to betting data and odds from Sports Insights.

I posted some betting tips and winning angles for NFL Week 2 preseason in an article at osga.com earlier this week. There have been some line moves, as some of the data and situations from Dr. Bob Sports can have that impact.

Betting TipsCheck out the NFL lines at leading online sportsbooks like DraftKings and FanDuel as you compare lines and determine your bets and strategy.

There are four remaining Week 2 games on Saturday and Sunday that offer betting tips with some positive profiles and situations. One Week 1 situation is 104-65 ATS (plus pushes), or 61.5% since 1994. The bet on teams below are bold, and those teams lost their first preseason game and are playing a team that won their first preseason game. Seems like more motivation for the team off a loss, even though the games don’t actually count. There is a subset angle that is 62-16 ATS, and since 2014 it’s 17-6 ATS.

Packers (+2.5) vs Jets
Seahawks (+5) vs Broncos
Rams (+6.5) vs Raiders
49ers (-5.5) at LA Chargers

Note the line moves, and also that underdogs of 3 points or more are 23-3 ATS and 17-9 straight-up when qualifying in this angle.
