Football betting fans will see Todd Haley lead the new look Kansas City Chiefs in their NFL gambling exhibition opener against the Houston Texans. Both the Texans and Chiefs enter the football betting preseason with plenty of optimism.
The Texans are being touted as a potential NFL gambling playoff team while the Chiefs are simply thrilled to have a new front office, coach and quarterback after last year’s horrible season. Head coach Gary Kubiak has the Houston Texans on the brink of a playoff spot and a contender for the AFC south division title.
Kubiak has methodically built the Texans in his three previous football betting campaigns and led them to a strong and impressive stretch run in 2008. Houston got the cash in 6 out of their final 7 football betting appearances last year as they finished 8-8 overall and with momentum on their side.
Kubiak’s football betting expertise is on offense and that is the Texans strength. Quarterback Matt Schaub, a 6 year pro out of Virginia, finished with a quarterback rating of 92.7 with 15 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions.
Kansas City has a strong quarterback of their own as they traded for Matt Cassel, who had a solid 2008 football betting campaign last year with the New England Patriots where he played all 16 games in place of the injured Tom Brady. Cassel finished with an 89.4 football betting quarterback rating with 21 touchdown passes and 11 interceptions.
He is a 5 year pro out of USC. Haley was the offensive coordinator of the Arizona Cardinals and a major contributor to their football betting success in 2008 as they went all the way to the super bowl. Haley will be working on pepping up the Chiefs offense and getting his system in place.
Cassel may see more preseason playing time than what is normally the case for a starter. Backups Brodie Croyle and Tyler Thigpen will get plenty of snaps, however. Schaub will see limited action for Houston and is backed up by Dan Orlovsky and Rex Grossman.
