NFL football returns to Fox for another huge sports betting season that will begin with three preseason telecasts beginning August 20. NFL football fans will get another preseason Fox telecast the very next day on August 21 before the network makes its final exhibition sports betting broadcast on August 27.
Fox will open their preseason NFL football lineup on Thursday, August 20 with the Philadelphia Eagles at the Indianapolis Colts.

The Cowboys will be under considerable pressure to fill it, however, and with this being their first ever game on their new field, the possibility of a motivational intangible edge is likely.

Plus Dallas wants to generate positive momentum heading into the regular season after their disaster of a finish at the end of the 2008 NFL football campaign.The final Fox NFL football preseason telecast is Thursday, August 27 as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Miami Dolphins. Miami was a surprise playoff team last year and will now be known as an established contender while Tampa Bay will be playing for a new coach after firing Jon Gruden following their collapse at the end of last year in which the blew what seemed to be a certain playoff spot.
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.
