Bet on the NFLFootball betting handicappers have much to be encouraged about with the Miami Dolphins as they have been sharp against the NFL odds this preseason. Football betting fans have seen the Dolphins go 3-0 straight up and 2-0-1 against the NFL odds so far in exhibition action as the Fish look poised to defend their AFC east title.
Miami opened the football betting preseason with a push when they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars 12-9 as 3-point home chalks. That was followed by a 27-17 home win and cover against the NFL odds as 2.5-point chalks against the Carolina Panthers. Miami then beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10-6 as 2-point NFL betting road dogs.
Defense has far and away been the football betting strength of the Dolphins so far in the preseason as Miami ranked 4th overall in the NFL for scoring and 5th in total yards allowed.
Lex Hilliard has led the Dolphins ground attack in the football betting preseason as he has 126 yards on 29 carries for a 4.3 yards per carry average. Hilliard has 1 year of experience out of Montana.
Receiver Brian Hartline has had a great football betting preseason as he has 5 catches for 107 yards and an average of 21.4 yards per catch. He is a rookie out of Ohio State and brings a game breaking element to the Dolphins attack that was sorely needed.If anyone though the Dolphins AFC east title last year was a fluke they are slowly coming around to the fact that Miami looks poised to make another playoff run for 2009!
Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
