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 instil 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 Pete Carroll of the Seahawks, who has a career 30-14-1 ATS record in preseason games. A smaller sample size has Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer at 11-2 ATS, while one coach to fade when betting the spread in the preseason is Hue Jackson of the Browns, who’s a brutal 0-8 ATS.

There are five new head coaches for 2017 who have no previous preseason head coaching experience: Vance Joseph (Denver Broncos), Sean McVay (Los Angeles Rams), Sean McDermott (Buffalo Bills), Anthony Lynn (Los Angeles Chargers) and Kyle Shanahan (San Francisco 49ers).

Here is a list of the 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 have never coached in the preseason.
