Reasons to Wager on NFL Preseason Games

nfl preseason wager

As a sports bettor, you probably belong to the multitude of handicappers that try their hardest to stay away from wagering on the NFL preseason. Chances are your theory is based on this specific reason: You can’t bring yourself to wager on NFL games that are really just there to give the second and third string players playing time.


But if you take a look at it, this is the only time during the NFL season that important information is open to anyone (especially to handicappers). If you aren’t betting on the NFL preseason, you’re missing out on a great opportunity to increase your bankroll before the real football kicks off. All you need to do is take some time out of your busy schedules to find some useful information.


The NFL preseason is the time when coaches make their game plans public. They release information like how much game time the important players will see or who will be starting for each position. These are just little examples of information you can find at your local news sources. For example, Indianapolis’ Coach Jim Caldwell mentioning that “Manning is just going to play the first series of the game, same as the rest of the first string office.” Knowing that Manning isn’t going to play that much is a great advantage.


It’s always a good idea to check your local online news source or related blog sites for information like the coach’s game plans, injuries, and more. You’d be surprised at what kind of information you can find for free.


If you enjoy handicapping and you’re any good at it, there’s a $15,000 Handicapping Contest at SBG Global. For every week during the regular season they pay the winner a handsome sum of money for successful handicapping. It’s worth taking a look at, especially if you’re a good handicapper.
