NFL Coaches: Preseason Betting Records

Knowing how specific NFL head coaches approach the preseason slate is crucial for bettors at this time of year. Some coaches go with the confidence-building approach of attempting to instill a winning attitude prior to the regular season beginning, while others use the exhibition games simply to evaluate talent and test different schemes. In other words, some care more about actually winning than others.

A few preseason records pop off the page, starting with John Harbaugh of the Ravens, who has a career 34-15 ATS record in preseason games. A smaller sample size has Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer at 17-8 ATS, while Brian Flores of the Miami Dolphins is off to a perfect 4-0 ATS start.

Because there was no preseason in 2020, a grand total of 10 head coaches enter the 2021 season having never coached a preseason game. This group is highlighted by legendary college coach Urban Meyer of the Jaguars. Expect Jacksonville to be one of the more intriguing teams during the preseason as No. 1 overall draft pick Trevor Lawrence gets his career underway.

Here is a list of the NFL head coaches, dating back to 1995, and their betting records both against the spread (ATS) and OVER/UNDER (O/U) in preseason action.
