Football betting on Thursday has a matchup of unbeaten teams in the preseason as the New Orleans Saints host the Miami Dolphins.
The Saints have been the best team in the NFL preseason leading the league in points scored. Those that bet on football may want to look at taking the Saints at home in this one.
Football betting has the Saints a 3-point favorite with a total of 36.5 on Thursday. Last week the Saints demolished the Raiders 45-7 in preseason football betting. Quarterback Drew Brees was fabulous again throwing for two more TDs as football betting statistics tell us. He will only play one series on Thursday so look for backups Mark Brunell and Joey Harrington to finish up football betting game. Football betting tells us that the Saints may be without both Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas on Thursday. Thomas is almost assuredly out as bet on football information indicates while New Orleans head coach Sean Payton would like to get Bush some work. “I don’t know. I’m hopeful and yet I want to be smart about it. We’ll see how it feels tomorrow. It’s progressing well with the rehab and everything, and what’s most important is the opening game, yet I’d like to get him some work if it’s possible.” Payton said. Look for backups Lynell Hamilton and P.J. Hill to get a lot of work in Thursday’s bet on football matchup.
Miami is also unbeaten in football betting this preseason but they have not been nearly as dominant. Quarterback Chad Pennington is ready for the start of the football betting season as he has thrown for 271 yards and 2 TDs. He won’t get much work on Thursday in football betting so look for Chad Henne and Pat White to see a lot of playing time.
Football betting stats have this as the 20th all-time preseason meeting between the two teams. Miami leads the pre-season series 12-7 including a 14-10 football betting win last year. You can almost guarantee this Thursday night game is going to be bland since the teams meet late next month in a regular season football betting matchup. Don’t look for anything fancy from either side on Thursday in this bet on football game. Taking the under is definitely worth a look as you bet on football with the Saints and Dolphins this week.
