If you do a little research and make some educated guesses based on current comments by coaches and players as to their intentions for any of their preseason games, you may have a chance to build that bankroll even before the season officially starts.

Saturday Leans:

1. Detroit (+2.5) vs Pittsburgh: Even w/o Big Ben Pitt is still the better team.  However, Detroit has won more games in the past two preseasons than they have in either season combined.  Therefore, I still look for the Detroit coaches to push for a win here, just to help the overall morale of this team.  So look for Detroit to come out and play harder as this game may mean more to Detroit than Pittsburgh. Lean towards Det.

2. Minnesota (+2.5) vs St. Louis: Without Favre confirmed to be the starter look for the QBs from Minnesota to take the field focused on earning a starting QB role.  Therefore, you may see some more passing from the Vikings, plus their running game will be solid even when they get pretty deep on their bench.  St. Louis still has a long way to go to be considered a professional football team.  Lean towards Minny.

These are not blockbuster picks, this is the presason so anything could happen.  Just some insight I have gained through some interviews with coaches and players that I have heard this year.

    one out of two. not a bad way to ease into the new betting season. Mr. Bookie you can have my juice this nice fine Aug Saterday for only a single bet. Was a blast to sweat these games again. Iam so glad football is back.

    Thanks again to you Brandon And Vegas for doing your write ups, really appreciate it.

    Glad to see you are back Moose. I’m getting pretty jacked up about another year of football as well. Thanks for joining the pick ’em league as well. Good luck.

    The Vikings game went as planned and you really saw the Viking QBs trying to earn a spot. There has been a lot of talk about Detroit being competitive this year. From what I saw, they have a long way to go to be ocmpetive every Sunday. For me they are going to remain a bet against until they show they can play like a pro team on more than a couple drives per game.

    Thanks for the comments Moose. It was fun to be back at the grind again.

    I don’ have time to do a write up, but am taking a chance with Cincy -3.5 tonight. They didn’t play well first out. I think starters may play a little longer tonight and try to improve on a lack luster performance last out verse Dallas. Again only playing small. It is actually part of 3team parlay I put together with a couple other baseball bets. Here is my ticket:

    Nationals -1.5 (at time of posting Nats won 5-3)
    Texas to win (at time of post 2-0 Tx bottom 7)
    Cincy -3.5
