NFL Coaches vs. Spread in Preseason

Some National Football League head coaches care more about their preseason results than others, with some of them liking their offense to get used to piling up the points and others instead playing their exhibition schedule close to the vest. And knowing how specific National Football League head coaches approach the preseason slate is crucial for NFL bettors at this time of year.

Here is a chart of the current National Football League head coaches and their betting records both Against The Spread (ATS) and OVER/UNDER on the NFL totals heading into the 2014 preseason action.

Lovie Smith is back after many years in Chicago, manning the sidelines for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, his preseason record is split almost perfectly down the middle on sides and totals. Ken Whisenhunt is back with a new gig as the boss of the Tennessee Titans and he had a losing record in exhibition play over many years as the Arizona Cardinals' head coach.
