Football betting for the first week of the preseason has the Washington Redskins hosting the Buffalo Bills.
It is the second preseason game for the Redskins while it is the opener for the Bills. NFL week 1 odds have the Redskins as a 5.5 point NFL betting favorite with a total of 36. Here is a look at this football betting matchup.
Football betting results saw the Redskins win and cover the NFL betting spread against the Indianapolis Colts in last week’s Hall of Fame game. Football betting stats showed that the quarterbacks for Washington were excellent, led by starting quarterback Jason Campbell. "I am very pleased with Jason," head coach Jim Zorn said. "I think he had poise in the pocket. I thought his tempo was good and his accuracy was pretty good." All of the Washington quarterbacks played well. Overall, Campbell, Todd Collins, Colt Brennan and Derek Devine were a combined 19-of-22 for 216 yards and three touchdowns according to football betting stats. Defensive ends Jason Taylor and Andre Carter both sat out the Hall of Fame game but could play on Saturday according to NFL betting experts.
The Bills are in a quarterback quandary again this season according to football betting experts. The team is looking at Trent Edwards as the probable starter but J.P. Losman is still in the mix according to football betting experts. Running back Marshawn Lynch probably won’t see more than a series or two on Saturday according to football betting information. Although the Bills have publicly given the quarterback job to Edwards the preseason will be a good test according to football betting experts. Other battles for the Bills according to football betting experts include the wide receiver contest between Josh Reed, Roscoe Parrish and James Hardy.
The Redskins will remain focused on their own quarterback battle according to football betting information as Colt Brennan and Todd Collins battle for the backup spot behind Campbell. With three quality quarterbacks on the roster it makes the Redskins an attractive football betting choice. Washington is the biggest favorite in NFL week 1 odds.
