Football betting for the third week of the NFL preseason concludes on Monday, August 25th with the game between the Seattle Seahawks and San Diego Chargers.
It should be a great way to end the week as the game is televised on ESPN. The Chargers are a small NFL betting favorite in the game. Football betting on the San Diego Chargers is usually popular when the Chargers are at home.
NFL betting gamblers know that the Chargers have a powerful offense led by quarterback Phillip Rivers and running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The Chargers are also thought of as a very good defensive squad that can impact the football betting lines.
Football betting on the Seattle Seahawks is oftentimes popular since the Seahawks have Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback. Seattle will be without receiver Bobby Engram who is out for the next couple of months due to injury according to the football betting injury report. The Seahawks will be relying upon Nate Burleson and Courtney Taylor according to football betting information. The Seattle running game should also be better this season according to football betting experts with the additions of Julius Jones and T. J. Duckett.
Last year in the preseason the two teams met in the first week of the preseason and the Seahawks took the 24-16 football betting victory. That result may mean little though as last season very few starters played according to football betting stats while most starters will play in this Week three NFL betting matchup. If you are looking at playing the total in this football betting matchup you may want to know that Mike Holmgren was 37-25 to the over in the preseason entering this season.
The third week of the preseason is normally the time when teams really concentrate on playing like they would in the regular season according to football betting information. NFL betting experts know that this means that starters usually go about three quarters and teams put in some normal game plans. That should be the case with this Monday night football betting matchup and that should make for an exciting game.
