NFL football gambling fans were impressed with the Vikings in their preseason opening win and cover against the NFL lines while the Chiefs failed to get the cash. The Minnesota Vikings have made their share of NFL football gambling headlines mostly regarding whether or not Brett Favre was going to join them as their quarterback against the NFL lines.
Once Favre finally decided to hang it up, (for now), the Vikings went to work at camp and immediately saw starting quarterback Tarvaris Jackson hurt himself in practice. Luckily for Minnesota, Jackson was not hurt seriously and, in fact, he saw plenty of NFL football gambling action in the Vikings preseason debut.
Minnesota was impressive in that 13-3 win and cover at Indianapolis over the Colts as 2.5-point NFL football gambling road chalks as the game went under the total of 35.5. Jackson was 7-15 passing for 39 yards.
Sage Rosenfels was the most impressive Viking quarterback in that NFL football gambling preseason opener as he was 10-13 for 91 yards. Ian Johnson had an impressive game out of the backfield as he ran for 50 yards on 9 carries.
Minnesota dominated the Colts in nearly ever aspect of the NFL football gambling matchup as they outgained Indianapolis 351-142. The Kansas City Chiefs had a disappointing NFL football gambling preseason debut as they were defeated at home by the Houston Texans 10-16 and failed to cover as 3-point home chalks.
Kansas City outgained Houston 307-280 but was -3 in turnover ratio. Quarterback Matt Cassel was a dud in his NFL football gambling debut with the Chiefs as he went 2-5 for just 15 yards. Brodie Croyle was effective as he was 12-18 for 145 yards passing.
Dwayne Bowe, who has been in head coach Todd Haley’s doghouse, came in after being benched at the start of the game and caught 5 passes for 70 yards. On the positive the Chiefs defense was not bad, especially against the run.
