Baltimore Ravens (0-0) at Philadelphia Eagles (0-0)
Line: Eagles by 3.

Thursday, 7:30 ET

The Game. Edge: None.
Outcomes of preseason games rarely have anything to do with the talent on the respective teams, since the majority of the games are played by second-, third- and fourth-stringers.

Some coaches care about winning preseason games, while others do not. Thus, betting on coaches with great preseason records is an easy way to make money.

Here are recent NFL Betting Trends: Preseason Records for every coach in the NFL.

***

John Harbaugh has the record advantage over Andy Reid, especially in Week 1 of preseason tilts. Harbaugh has never lost, while Reid is just 5-8. I went against the Eagles last year in Week 1, and came away with $300, as Jacksonville covered as three-point dogs.

MAJOR UPDATE: I'm going to scale back the Ravens pick and remove the Dolphins selection because of this article. This isn't a normal preseason, so I'd advise caution.

    The correct straight play for last nights game was Chiefs plus the points and the UNDER. In fact the Under was the BEST play. Two days ago this game was forecast- ed with TONS of Rain and temperatures in the low 40's. This forecast stayed the same all the way to opening kickoff. The Total line started at 42 three days ago and as the game got closer the line dropped and dropped and dropped until in some houses it was 37.5. This game had RUN, RUN, RUN written all over it. I of course played the Steelers in a ten point teaser -2.5 and did not include the Total. Escaped with a first spot win, but really messed up not teasing the Total up and going Under. On another matter, won another basketball teaser last night teasing the Thunder to +1.5 for my third spot win. Back in a while, Congrats to all winners.
