Football betting action for Week 4 of the preseason concludes on Friday as the Oakland Raiders visit Seattle to play the Seahawks.
Football betting has seen the Raiders and Seahawks meet during the preseason in previous seasons since they are geographical rivals, if not divisional rivals. The Raiders are counting heavily on rookie running back Darren McFadden to make an impact this season and he may see limited action in this game according to football betting information. Quarterback JaMarcus Russell may also go longer than normal for a fourth preseason game according to NFL betting experts since he is still learning the Raiders’ system. He will be followed by two quality backups according to football betting information in Andrew Walter and Marques Tuiasosopo.
The quarterback rotation for Seattle is even better than the one Oakland has according to NFL betting information. The Seahawks probably won’t play Matt Hasselbeck for long but Seneca Wallace has looked superb in the preseason according to football betting experts and Charlie Frye is a former starting quarterback in the NFL.
The Raiders will be looking at backup running backs Michael Bush and Adimchinobe Echemandu in this game according to football betting information while the Seahawks have a trio of backs that all could get time including Julius Jones, T.J. Duckett and Maurice Morris. Rookie Justin Forsett has also impressed football betting experts this preseason. Wide receiver Bobby Engram is still injured according to football betting information and won’t play so look for the Seahawks to be careful with Nate Burleson and limit his minutes. Look for Courtney Taylor and Ben Obomanu to get playing time according to NFL betting information.
Many times in the final week of the preseason there won’t be a lot of scoring according to football betting trends. This game might be low scoring and continue that trend but the quality of backup quarterbacks might make football betting gamblers a little nervous betting the under in this game.
