NFL football gambling handicappers were very impressed with the Patriots in their opening preseason win and cover against the NFL lines while the Bengals were sluggish. New England saw the return of Tom Brady as starting quarterback after missing all but the first quarter of the first game of the 2008 NFL football gambling season due to an injury.
Brady was the big story in New England’s 27-25 win and cover at Philadelphia as 3-point dogs against the NFL lines. Brady saw more NFL football gambling action than was expected in the preseason opener and went 10-15 passing for 100 yards for 2 touchdowns and 1 interception.
The Patriots were actually outgained by the Eagles in their NFL football gambling preseason opener 257-420. Andrew Walter had a solid game at quarterback when he took over for Brady as he went 5-9 for 62 yards.
Randy Moss had 3 catches for a team best 54 yards and Chris Baker had an impressive NFL football gambling preseason opener with 2 touchdown receptions. The Cincinnati Bengals lost their NFL football gambling exhibition opener at New Orleans by a score of 7-17 as 3-point dogs.
The Bengals actually outgained the Saints 379-316 but had 7 penalties for 62 yards and 3 turnovers. The Bengals pass defense was a NFL football gambling weakness as both New Orleans quarterbacks Mark Brunell and Drew Brees finished the game with quarterback ratings of over 125.
Bengals signal caller Carson Palmer was off and on in his NFL football gambling preseason debut as he was 7-11 for 133 yards with an interception. Chris Henry had an excellent game for the Bengals as he caught 7 passes for 100 yards and a TD. Chad Ochocinco had 2 catches for 73 yards.
Backup quarterback JT O’Sullivan was impressive against the Saints as he was 9-11 for 100 yards and a TD. The Bengals would figure to be highly motivated for this exhibition home opener, especially with the Patriots coming off a win and perhaps not as focused for this one.
