NFL betting action on the game between the Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots should get a lot of attention on Friday.
The Patriots are thought of as the Super Bowl favorite while the Eagles are expected to be a force in the NFC according to many football betting experts. Here is a look at this NFL betting matchup.
NFL betting in the third week of the preseason is always great since the third week is the only real test of the preseason. Most teams treat the game as they would a regular season matchup and that makes for exciting NFL betting. NFL betting stats show that the Eagles are led by quarterback Donovan McNabb and running back Brian Westbrook. They form a nice one-two punch that can always impact a game from an NFL betting standpoint. The Eagles are still looking for receivers although Kevin Curtis has shown signs of being a number one receiver and rookie DeSean Jackson could make an impact according to football betting experts.
New England has the best offense in NFL history according to football betting stats. NFL betting stats show that they are led by quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Randy Moss. Unlike previous preseason games, Brady and Moss should see substantial playing time in this game according to NFL betting information. Football betting stats show that the Patriots also have a solid running game led by Laurence Maroney and Lamont Jordan.
The Patriots will draw a good deal of action in this NFL betting matchup simply for the fact they are at home and will play their starters for the majority of the game. The Patriots are a popular play every week, especially when they play at home.
Traditionally in NFL betting, the Eagles have not been a good bet under head coach Andy Reid. He doesn’t worry too much about the preseason and the Eagles have been terrible against the NFL betting pointspread since he has been the head coach. That could make the Patriots a solid NFL betting choice in this matchup on Friday.
