Seattle vs. Oakland NFL Preseason Point Spread & Pick from Ben Burns: September 1st 2016

NFL Preseason Pick: Oakland -1 (September 1st 2016)

Playing at home, Seattle beat Oakland 31-21 in the final week of last preseason, the 10th straight year that they closed out their exhibition seasons against each other. On Thursday, hosting the Hawks for just the fourth time in the last 11 preseason meetings, I expect the Raiders to return the favor.

When the teams met here in Week 4 of the 2014 preseason, Oakland won by double-digits. That game set up similarily to this one as Seattle came in at 2-1 while Oakland was 1-2 and off a Week 3 loss. After losing their only other home game, a 27-14 loss vs Tennessee last week, I expect the Raiders to be a little more motivated to win this one than their guests.

NFL Preseason: Heath Mac betting the Atlanta Falcons +2 points on August 25th 2016

FALCONS VS. DOLPHINS PRESEASON BETTING PICKAtlanta Falcons vs. Miami Dolphins
NFL Preseason Point Spread Pick: Falcons +2 (August 25th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR HEATH MAC’S EXPERT NFL PRESEASON PICKS

We like the way the Falcons have been playing this preseason and they look like they have solid depth at QB with Schaub and Simms both looking good, though we’ll reserve full judgement until the real stuff begins. the Dolphins were awful last week (though they did help us land our 4* play of the week on the Cowboys). Atlanta’s secondary has been pretty good and we’re not sure the Dolphins are going to do any better than they did last week. They’ll need to if they are going to be competitive though – the Dolphin’s secondary put up 0 sacks, 0 interceptions, 0 forced fumbles last week….

Miami is 5-16 ATS in their last 21 games and 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games at home. Atlanta is 4-1-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

Not sure why we are getting the points here, but a good rule to follow in preseason football betting is to take the better team when they are getting points and that is exactly what is happening here.

For our free pick, take the Falcons +2 points.

Chiefs vs. Bears NFL Preseason Pick from Carlo Campanella: August 27th 2016

chiefs vs. bears preseason picksKansas City Chiefs vs. Chicago Bears
NFL Preseason Prediction: Chiefs -1 (August 27th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR CARLO CAMPANELLA’S EXPERT NFL PRESEASON PICKS

The KC Chiefs have started this Preseason off at 0-2, but they’re playing much better than their record indicates. They lost their opener to Seattle, 17-16, after allowing a “Hail Mary” TD on the last play of the game. They followed that with a road loss in Los Angeles, 21-20, despite out-gaining the Rams 382 offensive yards to 264 total yards! Chiefs HC Andy Reid knows that you MUST build a “winning culture” during the exhibition season if you want to win during the Regular season, which is why these Chiefs went 4-0 during the 2015 NFL-X, scoring 24 points or more in 3 of those 4 games. The Bears offensive line is terrible and they have no talent at the RB position after losing All-Pro RB Matt Forte in the off-season. Expect the Chiefs to shut down this Bear’s offense and get their 1st victory of the season on Saturday.

Chicago Bears vs. New England Patriots NFL Preseason Pick: August 18th 2016

5* Free Play on New England (-3). This isn’t so much of a play “on” New England as it is “against” Chicago, who dropped a goose egg last week in a 22-0 shutout loss against the Denver Broncos. It wasn’t so much about the score as the play on the field, as the Bears failed to reach 50 yards rushing on the ground and 100 yards through the air. We don’t expect the Bears to be held scoreless again or put up such embarrassing offensive numbers this week, but we also don’t expect Chicago to suddenly fix all of their offensive problems. On defense, the Bears are extremely young and susceptible in their secondary, and we do expect to see a Brady-less Pats offense see what their quarterbacks can do through the air. Bears inept offense combined with a bad defensive matchup leads to an easy Pats win and cover! 5* Free Play on New England.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Seattle Seahawks
NFL Preseason Pick: Vikings +3 points (August 18th 2016)
CLICK HERE FOR ROB VINCILETTI’S EXPERT NFL PRESEASON PICKS

The NFLX comp play is on Minnesota +3 Game 411 at 10:00 eastern. The Vikings are taking 3 points here and were solid in a road win at Cincinnati last week in a game where they were solid on defense. The game appeared close as the Vikings allowed an 80 yard punt return. They have Playoff revenge for a 10-9 loss and also for a blowout regular season loss, so they will be motivated here. Seattle came from behind with a big 4th Quarter to win in Kansas City. With Minnesota having covered 8 of the last 10 in week 2 we will look their way here tonight. On Thursday night there are a pair of powerful Week 2 NLFX Super system sides up and one is a top 5* play. In MLB Action and fresh off a top play sweep last night we have the 18-0 MLB Game of the week. Jump on now and cash out with the most powerful data available. For the NFL Free pick.

Cowboys vs. Rams NFL Preseason Point Spread Pick from Teddy Covers: August 13th 2016

NFL Preseason Pick: LA Rams -4.5 points (August 13th 2016)

If you’ve watched preseason games at the Edward Jones Dome in St Louis in recent years, you’ve noticed the lethargic crowds in a half-filled stadium. That won’t be the case on Saturday in LA, where 90,000 fans are expected to watch their home debut; a rare preseason setting where the energy for the home team is very real.

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher isn’t taking this preseason home opener lightly. After becoming the first NFL coach in 20 years to keep his job following four consecutive losing seasons, Fisher knows that there’s a ton of pressure to achieve in his first year in LA. His quote: “(We’re not going) 7-9 or 8-8 or 9-7, OK? Or 10-6 for that matter. This team’s too talented. I am not going to settle for that, OK? I know what I am doing.”

Of course, coach-speak can be overrated in August, but there’s no question that LA has expectations this August. Dallas does not. The Cowboys lost their first two preseason games last year by a combined 40-13 margin. They lost all four preseason games in 2014 by five points or more, including an ugly 27-7 Week 1 blowout loss. In fact, their last Week 1 preseason win came back in 2012, with a 3-0 victory over Oakland. I’m confident that three points won’t be enough for Dallas to win or cover this one, and head coach Jason Garrett sure doesn’t seem as if he’s treating this year’s preseason opener any differently!

The Cowboys have a ‘top-heavy’ roster. They’ve paid their superstars well, but those stars have been injury prone, and the quality depth behind them has been extremely limited. That’s been most obvious at the quarterback position, where it’s going to be Dak Prescott and Jameil Showers for the full 60 minutes on Saturday Night in an effort to keep Tony Romo from taking hits, with backup Kellen Moore already hurt. Prescott will be facing NFL competition for the first time; Showers was in training camp last year but he’s notched just 125 total yards of preseason passing under his belt.

St Louis will be giving a rookie QB ample playing time as well, but that rookie QB was #1 overall draft pick Jared Goff, not a 4th rounder like Prescott. LA will also have Case Keenum starting and Sean Mannion coming off the bench; two veterans who are primed to move the offense. Even with the pointspread creeping higher as we approach kickoff, this is a classic preseason contest where one team gives a sh** and the other team just wants to get out of town healthy….. Take the Rams.
