Bet on the NFLFootball betting Thursday will feature an all-Florida preseason sports betting affair from Tampa Bay as the Buccaneers host the Miami Dolphins on FOX-TV. Football betting fans have a win and a push so far in the sports betting preseason with the Dolphins while the Bucs have split their first 2 games.
This will be the football betting preseason road opener for Miami while Tampa Bay will be playing their first home game of the sports betting preseason. Last week the Dolphins scored a 27-17 NFL betting win and cover over the Carolina Panthers as 2.5-point home chalks with the game soaring over the total of 33.5. Miami starting quarterback Chad Pennington has looked sharp so far this football betting preseason as he has a quarterback rating of 109.3 and a completion percentage of .667.
Backup Chad Henne has also looked good as he has a 89.9 quarterback rating so far in football betting exhibition action with 2 touchdown passes and 1 interception with a completion percentage of .630. Running back Lex Hilliard has gotten plenty of football betting work so far this summer and has responded with 94 yards on 18 carries and 1 touchdown with an average of 5.2 yards per attempt. Ricky Williams had 52 yards on 13 attempts. The Dolphins defense has held opponents to 3.5 yards per carry on the ground. The Dolphins rank 6th in points allowed so far this preseason.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been pleased with the play of Luke McCown at quarterback so far in the football betting preseason as he has a quarterback rating of 107.5 with 2 touchdown passes. The rest of the signal callers have been less than impressive, however, in their exhibition football betting action. Byron Leftwich had a quarterback rating of 73.2 while Josh Freeman had a rating of 46.2. Kareem Huggins had 74 yards rushing on 19 attempts. Defense has been a football betting cause of concern for the Bucs as they ranked 30 in points allowed and 29th in passing yards allowed. Both of Tampa Bay’s exhibitions went over the total.
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.
