Welcome to our preseason NFL football picks page where you will find winning selections on NFL pre-season games ABSOLUTELY FREE!
Many people will tell you that betting on preseason games is a crap shoot and has no value. They couldn't be more wrong! Let us explain....
There's a few very strong variables that make betting on the pre-season games more valuable than betting regular season games:
1: The coaches basically TELL you what the're going to do in their pre-game interview.
2. SOME teams already have their starting lineups figured out. Others don't. If you find a situation where a team has guys fighting for positions vs. an already established team, you're in luck. The guys fighting for positions are going to give more effort and this is an advantage to you the bettor.
3. Even though it's pre-season, SOME coaches make winning a priority. Others don't. This too is a huge advantage when betting. How do you find out which coaches care? Previous years preseason records!
4. Quarterbacks! If a team has good veteran backup QB's going 2 or 3 deep and is going vs. a team that's 2nd and 3rd stringers are rookies or "not so good", this can be a nice angle to play as well.
Preseason NFL Betting Tip: You might want to consider betting the first half only, as the result might be tad more predictable due to starters and second stringers usually getting all of the playing time during the first two quarters. For more NFL preseason betting strategies, check out Jeff's article: How to Handicap Preseason NFL Games.
Note: The best info comes out LATE so you'll need to check in here up to ten minutes before gametime on gamedays for plays.
