NFL preseason odds will be on the board at the online sportsbook soon with the first game being played on August 9th as Buffalo and Tennessee meet in the annual Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio.
NFL preseason betting should be exciting on this matchup since it is a Sunday night game televised on NBC.
NFL preseason odds for Week 1 include a few marquee matchups not the least of which is a Super Bowl rematch between Arizona and Pittsburgh that will be televised on ESPN. The other ESPN televised game for Week 1 of NFL preseason odds has Carolina at the New York Giants. One of the other key games for Week 1 in NFL preseason betting has New England at Philadelphia. That will be the first chance that sports betting gamblers get to see Tom Brady in action since he was injured early last year.
Week 2 begins on Thursday, August 20th and includes a Fox televised game between Philadelphia and Indianapolis. Fox also has Tennessee at Dallas on Friday in Week 2 of NFL preseason betting. ESPN has the Monday night game as the Jets are at Baltimore.
NFL preseason odds at the online sportsbook for Week three have a number of great games. Miami is at Tampa Bay in a Fox televised game on Thursday while New England is at Washington on Friday in a game televised by CBS. Saturday has San Diego at Atlanta in a CBS televised game while Chicago is at Denver on Sunday in a game shown on NBC. ESPN’s Monday night game has Minnesota at Houston in NFL preseason odds.
NFL preseason betting for Week 4 is probably the slowest time of the entire preseason since it is hard to know what teams will do. Some teams will rest most of their starters while others will want more work. It is just hard to get a handle on the final week of NFL preseason odds. There are also no nationally televised games so that doesn’t help the sports betting interest level. Another factor is that college football is getting underway and the focus is not as much on the NFL preseason. A couple of games that could be interesting in Week 4 NFL preseason odds though include the Giants at New England and Dallas at Minnesota. The latter of those two games would definitely be interesting if Brett Favre is quarterbacking the Vikings.
