NFL betting has gotten off to a shaky start this preseason as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is facing a nasty sexual assault issue as preparations begin against the NFL odds. Roethlisberger didn’t expect to get a lot of NFL betting action in the pre season anyway.
What playing time he does get against the NFL odds in the preseason will be used to hopefully develop some better consistency. Despite the super bowl title last NFL betting season Roethlisberger was highly inconsistent and really didn’t start to click until the final playoff drive and through the NFL betting post season itself.
Charlie Batch is currently listed as the number two quarterback on the depth chart and he should see a fair amount of NFL betting snaps in the preseason. Batch, an 11 year pro out of Eastern Michigan is best remembered for his days as a starter with the Detroit Lions.
He has a career NFL betting quarterback rating of 78 with 57 touchdown passes and 44 interceptions. Batch has been with the Steelers since 2003. Hines Ward returns as the feature receiver. The 12 year pro out of Georgia had 81 catches last year for 1043 yards and 7 touchdowns.
Dennis Dixon enters the NFL betting preseason as number 3 on the Pittsburgh quarterback depth chart. Dixon is a 2 year pro out of Oregon that has thrown only 3 passes in his NFL betting career. He figures to see plenty of action during the exhibition campaign.
The Steel Curtain Defense re-emerged last year and ranked number one in all of pro football for yards per play allowed. Pittsburgh ranked 4th in sacks and 6th in interceptions. James Harrison was the ultimate sack master as he totaled 16 while LaMarr Woodley had 11.5.
Harrison is a 6 year pro out of Kent State while Woodley is a 3 year pro out of Michigan. Troy Polamalu had 7 interceptions to lead the team. Polamalu is a 7 year pro out of USC with 17 career picks.
