NFL betting on the New York Jets vs. Philadelphia Eagles would normally be a battle between quarterbacks Brett Favre and Donovan McNabb.
Since this is the final preseason game for both teams it is unlikely either Favre or McNabb will make more than a token appearance according to NFL betting experts. Football betting odds for this game will likely have the Eagles as small favorites in NFL odds week 4 action.
NFL betting this season will be popular on the Jets since Favre is at the helm. In this NFL betting preseason matchup it is likely that backup quarterback Kellen Clemens will get the majority of the playing time. Backups will be playing across the board for the Jets according to NFL betting information which means running back Thomas Jones and starting receivers Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery will see limited time.
The Eagles will be even more cautious with their starters in this NFL betting matchup. It is possible that McNabb and running back Brian Westbrook may not play more than a series, if it all according to NFL betting information. That should mean that quarterback Kevin Kolb and running back Correll Buckhalter see a lot of action and influence the NFL betting outcome. It could also be a showcase game for rookie DeSean Jackson at receiver according to football betting experts.
NFL odds week 4 action is full of unpredictable games since starters rarely go more than a quarter and some do not play at all. Many in the NFL betting community could do without the final week of the preseason altogether. Football betting action from this final week of the preseason is usually light since gamblers are looking forward to the start of the NFL betting regular season next week.
The best choice for football betting during this final week of the preseason is to exercise caution. Second and third stringers will play most of the game and their play is oftentimes difficult to predict in NFL betting. Normally you might be able to take the Eagles at home but head coach Andy Reid has shown in his tenure as head coach that he doesn’t care much about the preseason according to NFL betting information.
