As you get ready to make your NFL betting online wager on the Saints and Titans on Thursday don’t expect to see many star players on the field.
The Saints have nothing to prove and their starters won’t play much if at all. Tennessee is not likely to risk their star players either so the NFL betting outcome of this contest will come down to the backups.
NFL betting online odds at the Sbg global sportsbook will probably favor the Titans when this game gets underway. The Titans are at home and they have a solid backup quarterback in Kerry Collins. The Saints have an interesting backup quarterback situation as well with Patrick Ramsey and Chase Daniel getting playing time.
Who Comes to Play? – When you look at the fourth preseason game you really have to ask which team is going to come to play. The Saints have no incentive to win this game. They are on the road with the Vikings up next week in the season opener. The Titans may want to put on a show for their home fans so they may have a little more incentive.
If the Saints didn’t have such a good competition going on for the backup quarterback position between Ramsey and Daniel this would be an easy play on Tennessee. The problem with taking Tennessee is that New Orleans can score points with Ramsey and Daniel. The Titans are still going to get some action in this game though since they are at home and because the Saints aren’t playing their starters.
The Titans would like to get the win so they finish the season at .500. The Saints are already 2-1 so getting a win is not that important. Staying healthy is what is paramount for the Saints in this game.
Parlay: The Titans and the Over might be the way to go with an NFL betting parlay in this game. Tennessee has a little more incentive to win the game and both teams have quality backup quarterbacks who can put points on the board. The public will probably take the Saints simply because they want to see them getting points, but the value is likely with the Titans at home.
