Kansas City Chiefs at Miami Dolphins

NFL betting for Week #3 of the preseason includes the Kansas City Chiefs at the Miami Dolphins on Saturday, August 23rd.

This game should be competitive on the football betting board since both are thought of as marginal contenders for the 2008 season. Here is a look at this NFL betting matchup.

NFL betting is likely to have the Dolphins as a small home favorite in this matchup. Miami is now led by quarterback Chad Pennington who they picked up just a few weeks ago after he was released by the Jets. Pennington is expected to solidify the quarterback position for Miami according to football betting information. The Dolphins do have some talent surrounding him including running backs Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams. Miami will need to run the ball since the receiving corps is weak according to NFL betting stats.

The Chiefs also will be looking to run the ball according to NFL betting experts. They have Larry Johnson at full strength and he can impact the football betting lines at anytime. The Chiefs have a similar problem to Miami at wide receiver as only Dwayne Bowe looks to be capable of making an impact according to NFL betting experts. The good news for Kansas City is that they still have tight end Tony Gonazlez who is thought of by many NFL betting experts as one of the best in the league.

If you are looking at NFL betting trends for this game you might want to keep a couple of things in mind. The Chiefs have been rotten in NFL betting during the preseason over the last 18 years. They had a record of 28-44-2 before this season began according to football betting stats. If you like Miami you may want to know they are 15-23-2 as an NFL betting favorite in recent preseason NFL action.
