NFL betting odds handicappers, coaches, commentators, and players all agree that week 3 is the most critical in preseason against the NFL betting lines. Teams that normally don’t play their starters much in the preseason against the NFL betting odds will often let them play an entire half, if not more, in order to get into sync and prepared for the regular season.
The regular season NFL betting lines won’t be set for 2 more weeks so there is still time for players to recover from bumps and bruises after week 3 preseason action.
Beyond that a team that has lost its first 2 games against the preseason NFL betting odds will often come with extra motivation in order to stave off the possibility of losing all of their preseason games. As meaningless as preseason may be it’s also a fact that few of the teams want to look bad against the NFL betting odds even in games that don’t count.
Week 4 of the preseason is often considered the most challenging to handicap against the NFL betting odds. The benches usually get emptied in week 4 exhibition play as starters are protected for the regular season opener in the following week.
This means that one of the keys to success against the NFL betting odds in week 4 preseason action is to bone up on teams backup players, especially the quarterbacks. Backup quarterbacks are often highly motivated to show well against the NFL betting odds as it’s likely that they won’t see a lot of regular season action.
Not only do they want to show the coaches what they can do against the preseason NFL betting odds but they would also like to improve their trade or free agent value as well.
Week 4 of the preseason is also the final chance for winless teams to get a “W” before the games count. Few teams want to have the negative aura of having lost all of the exhibitions.
