NFL Football Picks
Both teams should be in the thick of their divisional races deep into the season, so we expect them to keep it simple tonight with lots of running plays. That said, when they do pass the ball the Titans have the better depth at the QB position with Mariota and Tannehill. Read on to see Zank’s research and against the spread selection.
The Seahawks travel to Carson, California to take on the Chargers at the Dignity Health Sports Park. Philip Rivers should see some action on Saturday and Pete Carroll usually has the starters play at the first half of the Week 3 game. The backups are decent on both clubs so does that suggest an OVER play? Our prognosticator weighs in on the game and gives out his betting prediction.
In the battle of Texas, we have the Houston Texans visiting the Dallas Cowboys. Jason Garrett has a large enough sample size for us to say that he doesn’t care about winning preseason games based on his 13-22. Bill O’Brien on the other hand does with a career 13-8 mark. Is that enough to back the visitor? Read our handicapper’s take on the game and get his free NFL pick.
The Bills have won their two preseason games and looked going doing so while the Lions have dropped both of theirs and haven’t. Stafford has yet to play and he would be a difference maker if he does get his first action, but HC Matt Patricia won’t say either way. Is that enough to take the Bills? Zank weighs it all out and gives out his prediction.
The Jags have yet to win straight up or cover a spread in their two preseason contests and find themselves in the underdog role this week on the road in Miami. The Dolphins have gotten the money in both of their matches and will look to keep their backers happy with a win and a cover on Thursday. Our capper is staying away from a spread play and instead has an O/U prediction.
Both coaches possess winning records in the preseason but the Seahawks on paper have much more depth at the QB position. That may be enough to take them plus the three points. Our handicapper has other ideas for where his money is going to land. Get his point spread pick>>>
Sunday NFL Preseason action has the Saints visiting the Chargers. Last preseason these two squads met with New Orleans walloping San Diego 36-7. Will we see a repeat again this season or will the Chargers exact some revenge and get the win and the point spread cover?
In Saturday night preseason NFL action, we have the Cowboys taking on the Rams in Hawaii. Neither squad put up much yardage or points in their openers with Dallas tallying nine points and the Rams three. Preston played just one series and Goff didn’t take the field. While we expect the starting QBs to see more action this week is either team worthy of a point spread bet? Read on to see how Zank is playing this game and get his free pick.
The Bears are the healthier of the two teams, but how much time are the first stringers going to play? You’d have to figure that the motivational factor would lie with the Giants after last season’s debacle and this is their last home game of the preseason. Will our NFL prognosticator be on the same side of the point spread? Read on to get Dan’s free NFL pick.
Early betting action has driven the spread on this game up to Cards -4, but should they even be favored? The Raiders looked much better in their preseason opener out gaining the Rams both on the ground and through the air. NFL handicapper Zank gives his opinion on how the game will unfold and his free pick against the spread.
Football prognosticator Loot Levinson examines the player moves and scheduling of the Colts and more. Detailed analysis of the team season O/U win lines plus his best bet.
If this game was played in the regular season the Cowboy’s would likely be a small road favorite at Levis Stadium, but it’s not. This is the preseason where depth and motivation are typically the key angles to use when handicapping the game. The ‘Boys QB Prescott may see a series or two max and there isn’t much behind him and there certainly isn’t a plethora of talent in the backfield with Zeke Elliott holding out. This looks like an easy 49ers win and cover. Let’s see if our NFL capper is on the same page with his ATS pick.
The Bucs with a new head coach Bruce Arians may be looking to build some confidence after last season’s dismal 5-11 record. The key skill players on offense remain and potentially have two starters to use in preseason games. The Steelers traded troublemaker Antonio Brown to the Raiders in the offseason and head into this game banged up in the receiving corp. Tomlin was 3-1 in the preseason in each of the last two seasons. Get Zank’s take and predicted point spread winner.
Carson Wentz health and Zekiel Elloitt’s hold out are two big factors in making future bets for the NFC East, Charles Jay takes into consideration a few other factors in making his predictions.
With Chargers QB sitting and RB Melvin Gordon holding out Los Angeles will look to give their reserves the lion’s share of the minutes on Thursday night in Arizona. The Cards are going to give rookie QB Kyler Murray some playing time, but we don’t expect him to run anything but a vanilla offense in his first pro action. Predictem handicapper Zank weighs out the lineups and the motivational factors to arrive at his preseason pick.
The Giants and the Jets take to the field of the MetLife Stadium on Thursday night for each club’s first preseason game of the 2019 season.
