2018 NFL Preseason Free Expert’s Betting Picks – Week 4
NFL Preseason Week 4 is the true dress rehearsal for the preseason, as starters, in many cases will play the entire first half and some into the third quarter. The betting odds in tonight’s and this weekend’s games will be closer to regular season matchup. About half the league plays tonight and the other half throughout Saturday, with two games coming on Sunday, including an 8 PM EST game between the Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys. All our odds below are from SportsBetting.ag. They have some of the most substantial wagering limits online for NFL betting and offer new players a 50% Bonus up to $1,000.
New York Giants Vs. New York Jets -2.5 Total: 41
The crosstown rivals face off in the preseason, in a matchup we only get to see in every four years in the NFL regular season. I expect to see the Jets taking this game more seriously with No. 4 overall pick, Sam Darnold, dominating reps.
I wouldn’t expect to see Manning much in this one, but even if that’s the case, Giants’ offensive line has looked woeful so far. They will be facing a more than capable Jets’ front seven and will also be without a first-round draft pick, Saquon Barkley. This one could be -3 or better as we get closer to game time. I’m rolling with the J-E-T-S.
San Francisco 49ers Vs. Indianapolis Colts pk Total: 43.5
The odds on this one seems like a total overreaction from Indy’s performance in primetime in the last week of the preseason. 49ers is a good football team, but the Colts, with a healthy Luck, could easily be a better team.
Luck and his offense will get plenty of first-team reps in this one. There is no way they shouldn’t be at least a small favorite in this game. I suspect this one will get closer to -3 in favor of the Colts as we get closer to kickoff.
Arizona Cardinals Vs. Dallas Cowboys +2 Total: 40.5
This is the Sunday Night Football game which will be broadcasted nationally on NBC. There is a lot of question marks regarding this game from the Cardinals’ side, due to head coach, Steve Wilks, still not addressing how long his starters will play.
Offensively, both teams are not only slow tempo but are dealing with all kinds of issues regarding the offensive line play. With Dallas not playing their starters much this preseason and the Cardinals in sort of offensive limbo, with playing times of first-stringers, also unknown – this total seems a bit high. I like the under in a contest with no real playing time assigned to starters and two teams dealing with make-shift offensive lines.
