It’s needless to say that the start of a new sports season is cause for a celebration of sorts. With the NFL preseason arriving in a hurry this week, I was nearly overwhelmed at the idea that the first games of the National Football league season were within a month away! Now don’t get me wrong. I love keeping close tabs on Major League Baseball, and as luck would have it the MLB season overall has been fairly good to me, but knowing that the NFL season is just around the corner makes the prospect of betting on sports in our featured online sports betting sites that much more exciting. While not being a proponent of wagering on preseason games, it is fun to see new talent, new offenses or even new coaching staffs display their assets and potential weaknesses. All this will undoubtedly come in handy when betting at our top sportsbooks either now, or at the start of the NFL season when the New Orleans Saints take on the Indianapolis Colts on September 6th. That date, is written on my calendar my friends, because that is a game that may not want to be missed.
For week 2 of the NFL preseason this week, a couple interesting games took place yesterday afternoon as the Cincinnati Bengals matched up against the Detroit Lions, and the Indianapolis Colts faced the Dallas Cowboys, who start the year sans one Bill Parcels and plus one Wade Phillips at the helm. It is true that preseason rarely predicts regular season performance by most teams, but I like the Cincinnati Bengals this year, as last year was a disappointment with a very good, but still inexperienced Bengals team. Meanwhile, the Detroit Lions have made their moves with key acquisitions in the Wide Receiver position with the #2 pick in Calvin Johnson; however time will only tell if QB Jon Kitna will be up to the task of leading a team plagued by disappointment in the last few years. I can’t keep restating how exciting the prospect of new online sports betting choices there are to choose from.
Even though I didn’t take part in betting on the NFL preseason games Thursday, I’m throwing five bucks on Buffalo to beat the Saints at Sportsbetting.com. I like the New Orleans Saints to lose in the preseason, as there seems to be some correlation of teams with poor preseason records going on to do very well come regular season. We’ll see if a potentially very shaky theory holds out today, however it’s only five bucks, and the idea of betting on football is too strong to pass up. There’s plenty of time for more online sports betting today, as Major League Baseball continues to chug along, and three other NFL games are scheduled for today. Head on over to one of our best online sportsbooks featured on our site, even if you don’t follow my foolish lead and bet on preseason football�until tomorrow, thanks for stopping by and good luck with your wagers!
