Bet on the NFLFootball betting Friday will feature a CBS-TV inter-conference sports betting matchup between the New England Patriots and home-standing Washington Redskins. Football betting fans have seen both teams break even in their first two sports betting matchups of the exhibition schedule.
The New England Patriots are coming off a 6-7 loss at Cincinnati last week as 6.5-point favorites as the game went under the football betting total of 36.5. The Washington Redskins scored a nice 17-13 home win last week over the Pittsburgh Steelers as 3.5-point favorites with the game staying under the sports betting total of 32.5. The New England Patriots have not been overly impressive on defense so far in the NFL betting preseason as they ranked 28th in passing yards allowed, 28th in rushing yards allowed, and 32nd in total yards allowed. On the bright side New England ranks 14th in preseason football betting for points allowed.
Tom Brady has looked solid so far at quarterback as he has a 92.1 quarterback rating with 2 touchdown passes, 1 interception, and a completion percentage of 61%. Backups Brian Hoyer, Kevin O’Connell, and Andrew Walter have been less than impressive in exhibition football betting action so far, however. Running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis has 75 yards on 14 carries for a 5.4 yards per rush average. He is a 2-year pro out of Ole Miss. Punt returner Julian Edelman has 1 touchdown and kicker Stephen Gostkowski was 4-4 in field goals for the football betting preseason.
The Washington Redskins went under the total in their first 2 football betting exhibitions and a big reason as to why was their offense. The Redskins rank 30th in the football betting preseason for points scored and 31st for passing yardage. One bright spot has been rookie Chase Daniel from Missouri who has a quarterback rating of 134.4 with 2 touchdown passes and a 75% completion percentage. Daniel was the star in Washington’s football betting payoff over Pittsburgh last week. He has far and away the best numbers of the Washington signal callers. Rock Cartwright has 50 yards on 12 rushing attempts while Marcus Mason has 57 yards on 17 rushes.
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.
