The pre-season concludes this weekend, and football betting fans will get one final chance to bolster their bankrolls before the upcoming regular season commences. On Thursday night, the Tennessee Titans (2-1) will march into Lambeau Field in hopes of knocking off the Green Bay Packers (1-2); kickoff is set for 8:00 PM.
After picking up back-to-back home victories in their first two pre-season contests, the Titans hit the road last week to the Georgia Dome to take on the Falcons. The football betting line closed at Tennessee +3 with a ‘total’ of 35.5. The only time the Titans were in line to cover for their NFL betting fans was when they took a 3-0 lead.
From there, Atlanta embarrassed Tennessee, holding them scoreless for the remainder of the game. The Falcons knocked off the Titans 17-3, easily covering the spread and never threatening the ‘total’. QB Vince Young struggled, only completing 50% of his passes, and the offense only accounted for 215 total yards on the night.
The opposite can be said about the Packers, who notched their first victory of the Aaron Rodgers era by beating the Broncos 27-24 in Denver as road underdogs. Rodgers was a sparkling 18/22 for 193 yards and a touchdown through the air, and added another score on the ground in his two and a half quarters of action.
Denver closed as three-point choices on the NFL betting line, but pro football betting fans who have backed the Pack all pre-season finally got their first taste of victory after two disappointing efforts to start the year. The ‘total’ of 38 went over with ease. Oddsmakers have tagged the Packers as five-point favorites in this showdown between two playoff teams from a year ago.
The ‘total’ now sits at 36, a combined score which has been eclipsed in all three Packers pre-season games.
