NFL Football Betting Preseason Betting Guide Part 1 If you don’t dabble in the NFL football betting activities during preseason then you are definitely missing out on a potential gold mine that can build up bankrolls for the regular year. A lot of people have grown a taste to NFL Football Betting during preseason, as no other time in any other sport do head coaches reveal player rotations and game plans beforehand and then more or less stick to them. However, there are still a few people who refuse to bet on these exhibition games, not knowing that they are missing out on really great opportunities that do not present themselves during the NFL regular season, which has the sharpest lines of any sport. It is a very novice mindset to think that preseason games are very much like the regular season games. You will see that some coaches like to win these games and some like to work on what are perceived to be team’s weaknesses, and knowing which is which can help you bring in the fat bankroll in four weeks. We will run down the coaches who like to win and who are actually expected to do well again this season, and we will also tackle the week-specific trends from the last 12 pre-seasons since 2000, because each week has its own characteristics. There are four coaches that you should watch closely during the entire preseason and they are Mike Shanahan of the Washington Redskins, Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers, John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens and Jim Schwartz of the Detroit Lions. For the coach that has the most career preseason wins, it’s none other than Shanahan and he is 46-22 straight-up with the Denver Broncos and the Redskins combined. More importantly from an NFL football betting perspective, his teams are 28-16-1, 63.6 percent against the spread since 2000. His Redskins were 3-1 both straight up and ATS last preseason. Tomlin on the other hand is 16-5 straight up in preseason ever since he took over as head coach of the Steelers in 2007 while going 13-8, 61.9 percent ATS in those games. Something else that stands out about Tomlin is that he is a perfect 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in Pre-Week 4, a week when most coaches do not allow their starters to see the field.


Harbaugh is 11-5 SU and 9-7 ATS as the coach of the Ravens, including 10-2 on the field and 84, 66.7 percent at the betting windows the last three years. Schwartz wanted to install a winning attitude for his formerly hapless lions in preseason, so he is 10-2 SU and 9-3, 75.0 percent ATS ever since he took over in 2008, including a perfect 4-0 both SU an ATS with a good Lions’ team last year. Watch out for the part two of this NFL Football Betting Preseason Betting Guide for more tips on how to win a lot of cash on the preseason.
