Week 4 NFL Preseason Odds
We are only a little over a week away from the start of the 2010 NFL season and coaches only have one more chance to get a look at their prospects before they finalize their team rosters on Saturday.
Week 4 of the NFL preseason is an opportunity to take advantage of any edge that may have emerged out of the first three games before the bookmakers adjust the odds to compensate. This week offers a few games that look like safe bets, but as we all know preseason NFL game outcomes are sometimes tougher to predict than regular season matchups.

The Green Bay Packers have been an offensive machine this preseason, scoring 110 points in three games thus far. Even at a 41-point total (Bovada) this game has OVER written all over it. The Packers will have to cover 5.5 points against Kansas City, which has yet to post a victory in this year’s preseason. Once the starters leave the field the Green Bay second-stringers should be able to control the pace and tempo of the game while still maintaining possession of the ball for most of the play. The San Francisco 49ers are attempting to go undefeated in the preseason with a win Thursday night over the San Diego Chargers. In their three games so far this preseason the Niners have scored 80 points and allowed 51, making a good argument for betting OVER the 35-point total. The Niners are also 3-0 ATS and should be able to cover the 3.5 points at Bovada against the Chargers this Thursday. In a classic battle of rivals, the New York Giants and New England Patriots both look like good teams this year. The Giants will have 3 point to cover but will have their hands full if Tom Brady and Randy Moss see a lot of time on the field. Both defenses have been giving up a lot of points so far this year, so the 37.5-point total could be a good OVER bet in this one at Bovada.
Another interesting bet is the Redskins/Cardinals game. Arizona will come into the fight having to cover 6 points, but their stellar defense will make that possible if they show how to play in a meaningless final preseason game. Washington will likely be more interested in clearing up their backfield issues as Willie Parker and Ryan Torain will be looking to prove they can perform behind Clinton Portis and Larry Johnson. The Arizona defense could be enough to keep the total score UNDER the 37 at Bovada. The New Orleans/Tennessee game is a lopsided affair on the books with New Orleans having to cover a 7-point spread. Despite the 41-point total, an OVER bet would be your best chance to cash in on this one. The Saints are already firing on most cylinders and should roll over the Titans for most of the game.
