Brett Favre’s NFL Preseason Betting Impact

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

NFL preseason betting is going to feature Brett Favre after all.

The quarterback ended his retirement and signed with the Minnesota Vikings on Tuesday. The Vikings should get an instant boost and be a popular NFL preseason bet at the sportsbook.

NFL preseason betting at the sports book on the Vikings has them playing three more games. On Friday they are hosting the Kansas City Chiefs in NFL preseason betting and Favre is expected to get a little bit of work. The following week is normally when the starters go into the third quarter in NFL preseason betting so it will be interesting to see how the Vikings handle their game at Houston. ESPN will be televising the game and they have to be thrilled that Favre is back because interest in that NFL preseason betting game will be high. The final NFL preseason betting game for the Vikings is on September 4th as they host the Dallas Cowboys in a game that can be seen on the NFL Network. The Cowboys know just how much Favre can help a team. "With that team and how good their defense is, to get a guy who can make the plays he can make, it definitely helps their football team," Cowboys tight end Jason Witten said.

NFL preseason betting stats tell us that the Vikings won the NFC North a year ago and finished 10-6. NFL preseason bet facts show that they lost to Philadelphia in the playoffs though. This season the Vikings are again the favorites to win the division as those that make a NFL preseason bet see, and with Favre they are given a chance in NFL preseason betting to make it to Super Bowl XLIV. "If he was coming back just to come back, I’d say yeah [it’s a surprise]," quarterback Jon Kitna said. "But he’s coming back to a team with a legitimate shot to go to the Super Bowl. Aside from him being hurt the last six games of last year, the last few years he’s played at a high level as any quarterback. People forget that."

NFL preseason bet action on Favre and the Vikings begins this week as they host the Chiefs. Even people in Kansas City were talking about Favre. “One of the great players of all time,” Chiefs coach Todd Haley said. The Vikings are 3.5 point NFL preseason betting favorites against Kansas City with a total of 36 at the sportsbook. The Vikings are likely to be small underdogs next week in NFL preseason betting at Houston while they should be favored in their last NFL preseason betting game against Dallas.
