Injuries Can Impact Preseason NFL Odds

NFL odds are on the board at the online sportsbook for the first week of the preseason and the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday, August 9th.

You definitely want to keep an eye on injuries this preseason as you wager on NFL betting odds at the sports book.

NFL odds at the online sportsbook on the Carolina Panthers could be interesting to watch in their first preseason game since they already have some injuries. Starting defensive tackle Maake Kemoeatu suffered an ankle injury and linebacker Jon Beaston has a hamstring injury. Kemoeatu rolled his right ankle while Beason injured his left hamstring as NFL odds indicate. The Panthers have a lack of depth at defensive tackle so Kemoeatu’s injury could be a problem in NFL odds. Undrafted rookie Marlon Favorite was even seen practicing with the starters as NFL betting odds indicate. Beason was the team’s top tackler last season as NFL odds stats show and his absence would be a major problem for Carolina.

The Bengals should be an interesting team in preseason NFL odds at the sports book. They just got Carson Palmer back on the field after he had missed two practices with bronchitis. Tight end Reggie Kelly hurt his foot and was seen on crutches.

An injury that could impact NFL odds happened in Denver as wide receiver Brandon Marshall suffered a hamstring injury. It has been a rough off-season for Marshall since he has demanded a trade but reported to camp anyway. An injury would be a huge blow to Marshall and to the Broncos in NFL odds. NFL betting odds stats tell us that Marshall has had two straight 100+ catch seasons. "If I had a team, I would definitely want him on it," Broncos cornerback Andre' Goodman said. "He's a big guy that runs great routes. He's a competitor -- any team wants a receiver like that. We want him healthy."

Another unhappy star receiver is also hurt and he could impact NFL odds. Cleveland’s Braylon Edwards had an ankle injury and his loss would be huge for the Browns in terms of NFL betting odds. Edwards wants a new contract and threatened to hold out. Some NFL odds experts have said that Edwards could be faking the injury hoping that the Browns will trade him or extend his contract. The Browns have a number of issues that could impact their NFL odds so they don’t need Edwards missing time with an injury.
