NFL Coaches: Preseason ATS Records

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 NFL head coaches approach the preseason slate is crucial for bettors at this time of year.

There are four new head coaches for 2016 who have no previous head coaching experience with the Miami Dolphins (Adam Gase), New York Giants (Ben McAdoo), Philadelphia Eagles (Doug Pederson) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Dirk Koetter). Mike Mularkey, who took over head coaching duties for the Tennessee Titans last November, will coach in the preseason for the first time.

A few preseason records pop off the page, starting with Pete Carroll of the Seahawks who has a career 27-13 ATS record in preseason games. One coach to side against when betting the spread in the preseason is Jason Garrett of the Cowboys who's gone just 6-14 ATS.

Looking at totals, it shouldn't come as a shock to see that new 49ers coach Chip Kelly has gone OVER in 10 of 12 preseason games, while Mike McCarthy of the Packers has also hit the OVER more often than not with a 27-13 O/U record.

Here is a list of the current NFL head coaches and their betting records both Against The Spread (ATS) and OVER/UNDER (O/U) heading into this year's preseason action. Head coaches with an asterisk beside their name are new to their team for this season.
