NFL Preseason Betting

Once upon a time preseason games were used to get starters in shape for the regular season. Before the 1978 season pro football teams played an astounding six exhibition games each. Starters would often play into the second half and, more often than not, teams actually tried to win.

However now days each team plays four preseason games and key players are barely utilized. New players and reserves get most of the playing time as they compete for final roster spots. Concurrently in this era, the object of a preseason game is to simply make sure that key players are not injured for when the regular season opens. Teams with new head coaches or coordinators will use preseason to iron out new schemes and play calling systems. Additionally, NFL preseason games are known for having a lot of mistakes and penalty flags.

The NFL preseason is supposedly disliked by almost everyone for the poor-quality farce it has become. Yet even those who rip the exhibition matchups must be watching and wagering as these games draw higher TV ratings and betting handle than regular season games from any other sport.

Some sharps like betting on preseason games when they can get information on which teams will play their top players more or less in a game. Live betting has become quite popular in NFL preseason for that reason as well.
