Bet on the NFLFootball betting continues with the first full weekend of preseason football action with a sports betting matchup of the Denver Broncos at San Francisco 49ers. Football betting fans will have plenty to evaluate and consider in this sports betting matchup that has plenty of handicapping angles.
This game will mark the football betting debut of Denver head coach Josh McDaniels, who had a rough and tumble start to his career this past off season. McDaniels immediately rubbed Denver’s star quarterback from last year, Jay Cutler, the wrong way and Cutler was traded to the Chicago Bears shortly thereafter for Kyle Orton. Orton entered the sports betting preseason as the number one starter.
The NFL betting line for this game opened with San Francisco as a 3-point favorite with an over/under of 34.
San Francisco head coach Mike Singletary wants to use the football betting preseason to maintain the momentum and positive vibes that were built up at the end of the 2008 season. San Francisco has had their share of recent football betting controversy as number one draft pick Michael Crabtree, an explosive wide receiver out of Texas Tech, is threatening to skip the 2009 football betting campaign and re-enter the draft next year. Singletary has said that he will simply concentrate and focus on whoever is currently participating in the football betting preseason.
49er quarterback Alex Smith has had a star crossed football betting career that has been unfulfilling and injury prone. Smith enters the 2009 football betting preseason as the number two quarterback behind Shaun Hill but with hopes of taking the number one job with a solid exhibition season. Smith is 100% healthy and the word from the 49ers camp is that he is looking sharp so far. Smith will get plenty of preseason snaps as the 49ers have a lot invested in him as the first player picked in the 2005 draft out of Utah.
Orton may get more snaps than normal for a starter in preseason but Denver also figures to give number two quarterback Chris Simms plenty of preseason work. McDaniels faces the challenge of schooling two new quarterbacks at Denver in his system and getting them acclimated with their Bronco teammates.
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.
