Bet on the NFLFootball betting continues with the second full week of preseason sports betting action as the Seattle Seahawks host the Denver Broncos. Football betting handicappers will get the chance to evaluate two sports betting commodities that look to be in rebuilding mode for this year.
This football betting matchup will be telecast by the NFL Network as Jim Mora Jr. will make his sports betting debut at home as coach of the Seahawks. Last week Mora led Seattle to a NFL betting win and cover at San Diego over the Chargers by a score of 20-14 as Seattle covered the spread as 3.5-point dogs with the game going under the football betting total of 36.5.
Seneca Wallace, who had an impressive 2008 football betting season at quarterback for Seattle, again caught the attention of everyone with a solid performance in which he went 8-12 for 40 yards with 1 touchdown pass. Number one quarterback Matt Hasselbeck saw limited action in that football betting preseason opener as he was 3-5 for 27 yards. Fourth string quarterback Mike Teel got a good long look as he went 7-15 for 75 yards with 1 touchdown and 1 interception. One point of concern for the Seahawks was their pass defense as they allowed 329 yards in their air against San Diego.
Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels also had his football betting debut last week as the Broncos lost at San Francisco 15-16 but covered the spread as 1.5-point dogs. Denver scored a touchdown with under 2 minutes to go but failed to convert the 2-point conversion. A potentially interesting quarterback controversy is brewing in Denver as number two signal caller Chris Simms clearly out-performed number one QB Kyle Orton in that preseason football betting opener.
Simms was 11-17 for 142 yards with 2 touchdown passes while Orton was 9-16 for 89 yards with 3 interceptions. Both should again see plenty of football betting action at Seattle in this matchup. Denver’s rush defense was horrible in that opener as the 49ers ran for 136 yards on 30 attempts. The defense failed to come up with a turnover.
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.
