Buffalo Bills (0-3) at Detroit Lions (1-2)
Line: Lions by 3.

Thursday, 7:00 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.

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

As I discussed last week, Chan Gailey doesn't care about winning preseason games. Jim Schwartz does, so he may want to finish strong with a victory after losing at Oakland this past weekend.

    Mike McCarthy doesn't give a damn about Week 4 preseason games. I'm not sure if Romeo Crennel does, but he may want to end the exhibition on a high note after getting blown out against Seattle.

    I cannot believe the Eagles are favored by this much. Andy Reid completely mails in the last preseason game every year, so there's no reason the spread should be this high. Rex Ryan, meanwhile, will want his team to get into the end zone. This is my August NFL Pick of the Month because this line is so ridiculous.

    Mike Tomlin is insane and loves to win these meaningless preseason games. Ron Rivera doesn't seem to care one way or the other. I wish this spread weren't larger than a field goal, but Pittsburgh is still worth a moderately sized wager; Tomlin has won all five of his Week 4 preseason games by 16, 16, 11, 3 and 16 ponts, so odds say that he's going to cover.

    Again, I only lost one game out of four on Sunday. And it cost me a lot. Because the Mighty Kittens, I mean, the Bears, had ZERO offense. What a joke. How has this team won seven games. I haven't watched them at all this season, except for the highlights. And they looked really tough. Every bet going forward is going to be against the Mighty Kittens. Good defense, but the offense is junior varsity. Bye, bye Kittens, no Super Bowl this year.

    "Bills are 13-8 ATS after playing the New England Patriots since 1999."

    I like to review the stats that might help me make an informed decision. But what the hell is this stat?? How could this possibly have any affect on the next game for the Bills?? It's like, "The Bills are 13-8 after at least 10 players had colonoscopies the week before." (That reminds me, I need to have one.)

    It's good to dig deep, but not this deep! (Pun intended)

    @BD/V: Again agree completely. On Walts NBA site, I posted the Pacers as well for a eight point teaser -1.5. Also put in that same teaser New York +1.5, with one open spot at the moment. Leaning real heavy towards teasing the Total in that Knicks game Up and going Under..for that final third spot. GLTA.

    Been traveling a bit lately, and haven't had time to post over here... Finally back this week for about a week or so, and taking off to cancun for a long deserved vacation.

    In any case, i have an NBA game that realyl stands out today.. Paceers -8 vs Toronto. Toronto is banged up as is, with lowry, fields, and anderson missing the game, and they just played a triple over time game last night. I doubt they'll have the legs to keep up with Pacers in the 2nd half of the game. Hate taking big favorites, but I think this is a great play.

    Pacers -8

    Good luck to everyone,
    BDV

    @GB Paul: (laugh out loud), could not agree more with your post. These QB posers that the Media have "told" us are fantastic QB s is a MYTH. From way back QBDK, Cutler, Romo, are a but a shadow of the "Super six"...or seven if you include Eli Manning. The others (of course) are: in no particular order: Rogers, Brady, Peyton Manning, Brees, Big Ben, Rivers. To be fair there are some promising QB s on the horizon, but for now that's where they are..the horizon. If you have not been "Playing" the above Greats consistently, you are missing out long term. WORSE, if you are consistently "FADING" these quarterbacks you are getting HURT long term. GLTA.

    Rodgers to Cutler, "so...you scored 6 points against the Texans...that's cute. We scored 6 touchdowns!"
