NFL betting on Thursday includes a matchup of two potential playoff teams as the Tennessee Titans host the Green Bay Packers.
The Packers have looked great for those making a football bet this preseason, winning by 17, 10 and 7 points respectively.
NFL betting has Tennessee as a 3.5 point favorite with a total of 36. The Packers have been superb in the first half of their NFL betting contests but this week could be different since the starters won’t be playing for more than a series or two. Aaron Rodgers has been one of the best quarterbacks in the preseason, throwing for 458 yards and six touchdowns as NFL betting stats tell us. Following Rodgers in this NFL betting game will be backups Matt Flynn and Brian Brohm who are battling for the backup job.
Tennessee is just trying to get this NFL betting preseason over with. Playing five games is simply too many in NFL betting in the preseason. Some people say four games are too many. It seems like a long time ago when the Titans opened the preseason with a win over the Bills in the Hall of Fame game. Tennessee has lost two straight in preseason NFL betting. The first string played well last week though and quarterback Kerry Collins looks ready for the NFL betting regular season. Backup Vince Young has been inconsistent but has had his moments in NFL betting. Third string quarterback Patrick Ramsey will also see a lot of time in this NFL betting matchup.
The Titans are happy to be matching up against another team that plays the 3-4 defense since they play Pittsburgh in their regular season football bet opener and the Steelers use that defense. "A lot of the schemes are similar to what we’ll do against Pittsburgh. They do a couple different things you know so you have got to have a few wrinkles in there for things they do. For the most part, it’s going to be a lot of the same type schemes." Quarterback Kerry Collins said. The Packers have 13 takeaways and have allowed 10 points through three preseason games as football bet stats show. "It’s going to be a good test," head coach Jeff Fisher said.
The Packers and Titans have met nine times in football bet preseason history with the Titans holding the 6-3 lead in the series.
