What did we learn from the first week of NFL preseason betting action?
NFL preseason betting in the first week saw a number of important developments. A team to watch this season could be the Green Bay Packers. They have a new defensive coordinator in Dom Capers and the team looked great in a sports betting shutout of Cleveland. That shutout in NFL preseason betting for Green Bay happened even though they were missing five starters on defense.
While it is still early in NFL preseason betting, those that support the Denver Broncos have to be concerned. Quarterback Kyle Orton was terrible, star wide receiver Brandon Marshall is unhappy again and running back Knowshon Moreno doesn’t look ready yet. There is some early concern in Washington as well after the Redskins were routed 23-0 by Baltimore in NFL preseason betting. The Redskins could bounce back though and head coach Jim Zorn didn’t seem too concerned. Anytime you have Jason Campbell as your starting quarterback though you should be worried.
If you are looking for a team to not suffer a fall this season in online sports betting then look at the Tennessee Titans. This team was great last year but lost in the playoffs. They could be even better in sports betting in 2009. They are unbeaten in NFL preseason betting and look like they could have an impact receiver in rookie Kenny Britt. The Vikings also added Nate Washington in the off-season so look for the Titans to be very good this year in online sports betting.
This week in NFL preseason odds could hold a few more clues. Brett Favre gets his first playing time with the Vikings. The Rams will have to do without starting quarterback Marc Bulger in NFL preseason odds so it will be interesting to see if Kyle Boller is ready to step in when needed. The Bengals will be without starting quarterback Carson Palmer so questions will be answered about their backup. Quarterback battles are still going on in San Francisco, Cleveland and Tampa Bay. All three teams need some sort of an idea who is going to lead them this season and this week’s NFL preseason odds results could give them an idea.
