New York Giants at New York Jets

NFL betting on Saturday, August 24th includes the battle of New York as the Jets host the defending Super Bowl champion Giants.

The game will be one of the most popular ones on the football betting board in Week #3 of the preseason. NFL betting will be focused on the quarterbacks in this New York matchup.

The Giants are led by Eli Manning while the Jets are led by Brett Favre. A lot is now expected out of the Jets so this will be an important preseason test against the World Champs. The Giants are not thought of as Super Bowl favorites in NFL betting this year as most people believe they just had a magical run a year ago. The Giants didn’t make many changes in the off-season although they are hoping draft choice Mario Manningham can make an impact at wide receiver according to NFL betting information.

The story for the Jets is all about Favre. He is expected to immediately make them a contender for the playoffs and impact NFL betting lines. He does have some talent to work with according to football betting experts. Thomas Jones is a solid running back that can impact NFL betting lines. The receivers can also make their mark in NFL betting as Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery have speed.

NFL betting numbers show that the Jets have been a pretty good team against the football betting pointspread in recent preseason history. The Giants have been up and down versus the NFL betting number, although they are a very poor favorite in preseason NFL betting.

Week 3 of NFL preseason football betting is as close to the regular season as you can get. Most teams play their starters about three quarters which means the games are a true test and very much like regular season NFL betting. A regular season NFL betting line on this game would be close to a pick since Favre is now leading the Jets. Before his arrival it is likely that the Giants would have been the football betting favorite in this game.
