Bet on the NFLFootball betting will resume with the second full week of preseason sports betting action from Indianapolis as the Colts host the Philadelphia Eagles. Football betting fans will get a look at two top sports betting playoff contenders and perennial powers in pro football on the FOX-TV network.
Both teams lost their football betting preseason openers last week. Philadelphia has made significant sports betting news, however, with the signing of former Atlanta Falcon quarterback Michael Vick, who has entered camp and has begun practicing.
The Eagles were defeated by the New England Patriots in their preseason NFL betting debut last week 25-27 as they failed to cover the football betting line as 3-point home favorites. The game went well over the football betting over/under of 33. The Eagles actually outplayed the Patriots in many football betting aspects of the matchup as they held a 25-16 first down advantage and out-gained the Patriots in yards 420-257.
The Eagles harmed themselves, however, with costly penalties as they had 8 infractions for 98 yards. AJ Feely was solid at quarterback for the Eagles as he went 18-24 for 211 yards and 1 touchdown. Donovan McNabb saw more action than expected and was 11/18 for 103 yards. LeSean McCoy was impressive on the ground as he had 55 yards on 10 attempts. Jason Babin and Rashad Baker each had 4 tackles to lead the Eagles.
Donald Brown, a first round pick out of Connecticut, rushed for 58 yards on 5 carries with a long of 38 yards to impress everyone. Curtis Painter was 10-17 for 77 yards at quarterback for the Colts as Peyton Manning threw only 2 passes and is not expected to see a lot of preseason action.
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.
