Bet on football has the Atlanta Falcons hosting the San Diego Chargers in preseason action on Saturday in a game that will be televised on CBS.
It should be a good NFL betting matchup in the first half as the starters get a lot of work for both sides. Here is a look at this bet on football game between the San Diego Chargers and Atlanta Falcons.
Bet on football odds have the Falcons a 2.5 point favorite with a total of 42. The first half in bet on football action could see a lot of scoring since both teams have potent offenses. The Falcons have looked good in NFL betting preseason action with Matt Ryan and running back Michael Turner and the same thing can be said of the Chargers with quarterback Philip Rivers and running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The Chargers are hoping that their first round draft pick, Larry English will make his debut in bet on football action on Saturday. The Falcons haven’t played a preseason game at home yet this season so they may want to make a good impression in this bet on football matchup.
The third bet on football preseason game is normally when the starters play into the third quarter and that will be the case this NFL betting week. “We’ll play our starters, or the guys that we feel will be major contributors, a lot longer.” Atlanta head coach Mike Smith said, “They’ll go through halftime and we’ll determine how long they will go in the second half. Right now, we are planning on getting those guys through halftime so they will have the opportunity to make adjustments with the coaching staff and get out and participate in the second half.” One Atlanta player that will have a little extra motivation in this bet on football matchup is running back Michael Turner since he is a former Charger.
The Chargers and Falcons have met five times in bet on football preseason history and the Chargers have won four of the five games. The teams have not met in the bet on football preseason since 2000 when the Chargers won 28-14. They did play in the NFL betting regular season last year though as the Falcons won 22-16 at San Diego.
This bet on football game should be entertaining to watch on CBS on Saturday night.
