Football betting action for the 2008 preseason ends on Friday with three games including the Denver Broncos at the Arizona Cardinals.
Football betting stats have some interesting numbers for this game. Entering preseason play this year the Broncos were a powerful 31-16 against the football betting pointspread vs. NFC teams in the preseason. The Broncos have also been excellent in Week 4 of the preseason of late according to football betting stats. Denver has covered the NFL betting pointspread in eight straight week 4 preseason games. That could make the Broncos the choice in this game even though the Cardinals have the home field advantage.
Both teams have solid quarterback rotations according to football betting information. The Cardinals have seen Matt Leinart and Kurt Warner get the bulk of the playing time with Brian St. Pierre getting a little action. The Broncos have Jay Cutler as the starter and Patrick Ramsey as a quality backup according to football betting information. The Broncos don’t have quite the quality at running back but they do have Selvin Young and Michael Pittman according to NFL betting information. The receivers for Denver are good although how long starters Brandon Marshall and Darrell Jackson will play is a question mark according to football betting information.
The Cardinals have Edgerrin James at running back but it is unlikely he will see more than a series according to NFL betting information. That should mean increased time for J.J. Arrington and Terrelle Smith according to football betting information. Also look for rookie Tim Hightower to get some playing time according to football betting information.
Week 4 NFL odds usually have small football betting favorites and low totals. Underdogs and unders have ruled the day in Week 4 of preseason football betting action. That could be the case in this matchup as well as neither team wants to risk injury according to football betting experts. Last season was a bonanza for unders in the final week of the preseason as games averaged only 30 points.
