NFL gambling expectations are sky high on both the New York Giants and New England Patriots as both will be consistent favorites this year against the NFL lines. The New York Giants are 1-2 both straight up and against the NFL gambling lines so far in the preseason as 2 out of their 3 exhibition games have gone over the NFL lines total.
Last week the Giants lost at home to the New York Jets 25-27 as 3.5-point chalks as the game went over the total of 36. The New England Patriots are 2-1 straight up but just 1-2 against the NFL gambling board so far in the preseason. The Patriots have gone over the NFL gambling total in 2 out of 3 preseason games this year.
Last week the Patriots won at Washington 27-24 but failed to cover the NFL gambling line as 3.5 point chalks as the game went over the total of 37.5.
The biggest news out of New England this NFL gambling preseason was when quarterback Tom Brady left last week’s game in the 2nd quarter after a strong hit in which he landed hard on his throwing shoulder. While the Patriots deny that anything was wrong not everyone is buying the “company line”.
Brady should see limited action, if any action at all, in this preseason NFL gambling matchup. Backups Kevin O’Connell and Andrew Walter have quarterback ratings in the mid 70’s compared to Brady’s 106.0 for the preseason.
One positive for the Patriots in the NFL gambling preseason has been running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis as he had 124 yards on 20 carries for a 6.2 yards per rush average. Receiver Randy Moss looks to be in mid season form with 9 catches for 144 yards and 2 touchdowns this preseason.
David Carr and Andre Woodson have gotten the majority of play at quarterback for the Giants in the preseason. Carr has looked great with a 116 QB rating while Woodson has been dreadful with a 45.3 QB rating.
The Giants are +4 for turnover ratio in exhibition action. Ahmad Bradshaw has been strong out of the backfield with 136 yards on 19 carries and a TD.
