The Redskins should be a small football betting favorite in NFL odds week 4 numbers. That could indicate a play on the Jaguars since Jacksonville came into this preseason with strong NFL betting results as an underdog. Let’s take a look at this NFL betting matchup in Week 4 preseason action.
NFL betting action on this game will probably see many gamblers taking the game under the total. Neither team will want to risk an injury so starting quarterbacks David Garrard and Jason Campbell probably won’t play long according to NFL betting information. That means the game will be a battle of the backups according to NFL betting information with Cleo Lemon getting a lot of time for the Jaguars while Todd Collins and Colt Brennan see the time for the Redskins.
Don’t expect to see running backs Fred Taylor or Maurice Jones-Drew for long according to NFL betting information. Clinton Portis also probably will see limited or no action in this game according to NFL betting information. Starting receivers also won’t see much time and neither team’s first string defense is expected to play more than a series or two.
Many times with NFL odds week 4 action the football betting results are unpredictable because starters don’t play long. Even some of the second stringers don’t play that long according to football betting information. It becomes a battle between the third string players and those results are tough to predict in NFL betting.
Jacksonville has been a strong underdog in the preseason according to NFL betting numbers. They were 15-7-1 as an underdog in preseason football betting numbers before this year began. The Redskins have a new head coach this season in Jim Zorn so his preseason NFL betting tendencies are not known. Jack Del Rio has always been a coach that likes to win in the preseason and the underdog success the Jaguars have had in NFL betting numbers backs that up.
