Miami Dolphins (0-1) at Carolina Panthers (0-1)
Line: Panthers by 4.

Friday, 8:00 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.

I don't have much for you this week because there are too many unknowns with all of these damn new coaches. Joe Philbin may want to win his first game though. He should be able to do it against Ron Rivera, who is just 1-4 in the preseason. However, there's not much data here, so this is going to be a small play.

    I don't know what Chuck Pagano wants to do in the preseason, but Mike Tomlin loves winning these meaningless games. He's coming off a loss, so he's probably pissed off.

    I normally don't bet on Andy Reid in the preseason, but there's a caveat here. The Eagles will be playing their starters into the third quarter because they can't do that next week. Thanks to a schedule screw-up, Philadelphia takes on the Browns next weekend as well as Week 1 of the regular season. In other words, Reid will be treating this like Week 3 of the exhibition campaign, which is when he usually does very well.

    @passengers

    I want to thank all you guys for the kind words. All is back to 100% normal but it's getting there. I too hope everyone out there that has been affected by the storm is well.

    I also want to apologize as I couldn't get back on today to give you guys the under in the Lakers/Utah game (which is going quite well BTW) and the Warriors.

    Hope all did well tonight! Hopefully I will be able to go more in depth tomorrow!

    Walt rules.

    Where else can you get on someone's board and insult him unmercifully and not get blocked? He also embraces his hate-mail. I think he's pretty cool for that ..

    "The Broncos have two divisional battles coming up after this meaningless non-conference tilt. "

    There isn't any such thing as a meaningless game for a playoff-caliber team, Walt.

    But there is such a thing as a meaningless FG with 20 seconds left. F You, Falcons.

    I value your reasoning on SOME of your games, and I pay extra attention to the games you bet your units on. Stay strong my friend.

    Ok, here are the rest of my NBA plays for tonight...

    7:35; I like the Pacers, I do, but I like them a lot better with Granger in the line up then I do with him out. Atlanta lost their home opener and I don't see them going 0-2 at home to start the season. Not to mention that Orlando likes to beat up on the Pacers winning the last 3 games. I wouldn't have posted this with out Josh Smith but he slated to start so I'll lay the small 4 as the Hawks win by 10. 101-91.

    8:00; same concept in Houston as the Rockets host the Nuggets. Why is Vegas in love with the Nuggets? They've lost all three of the road games and where as the Nuggets are over rated the Rockets are under rated. Rockets have also lost their first home game and do not look ready to go 0-2 there. Small number and great value.

    I have to go now but I might have some more good plays tonight so stay tuned and as always good luck!

    Of course you picked against Atlanta. You are so biased your willing to continue losing even though you're 1-7 picking the Falcons. Dumbass.
