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.

    I'd be concerned takin the steelers tonight as "easy money." Vegas slaughtered the public this weekend so you know everyone is gonna try and make up for their loses on tonight's game. don't be surprised with a 21-10 final and a narrow chiefs cover

    I think I'm gonna play a Steeler slaughter and the under (31-3).

    Any of you NBA experts have a game or 2 to recommend to help a degenerate gambler fill out a parlay? Any help would be appreciated and I won't hold it against you if you miss it.

    Good luck tonight.

    I understand Todd Haley maybe wanting to crush his former team. However, Romeo Crennel was Haley's Defensive Coordinator for a season and will more than likely know his tendencies also. I wouldn't put too much stock in it, seems like a wash to me.

    Keep it up Walt.............love the 3/4 unit plays this season.

    Also pretty solid in NCAA

    Looking toward PIT and under play. Maybe UNDER KC total. In Yeras past it was a no brainer taking double digits in KC....such a solid home field advantage...NOT THIS SEASON though

    Good afternoon passengers, I have a few minutes so I'll just do this now before it gets busy. 34-27-3 and we're inching towards 10 over. Let's get to 8 tonight shall we?

    Let's start by saying that as you know, I'm a Steelers fan but believe it or not that helps me handicap them. I am gonna use that tonight as I feel this is a perfect spot for a Steelers blow out. Listen, the Steelers don't play blow out football but tonight I feel that one factor will play a huge factor. That factor is Todd Haley. He was fired by the Chiefs and has a team now that can do some major damage. Not to mention their playing well AND the love playing on Monday Night Football. He is gonna want to crush this team. The Chiefs offense is horrible and I don't see them scoring much. This will probably be a close game early but the Steelers should eventually pull away. This is how I see this game in a short perspective, if the Chiefs score first or lead for the first time all season they might cover but if the Steelers score early and often like 10-0 or 14-0 the Chiefs will go right to sleep. I think the latter is more likely to happen, 33-7 final.

    This line is currently down to 12 1/2, but even at 13 I like it. If you can get that half a point get it.

    Good Luck everyone, tickets please.

    Walturd, you ugly dog. Keep up the good picks. Riding on your back has given me 2 winning weekends in a row. I refuse to bet on Chiefs tonight so I'm taking the winnings from from a great Sunday morning and regrouping for next week. Don't gloat like a pig when you win and don't cry like a baby when you lose. Oh, by the way you should make Thursdays a no play cuz that is where you really stink as bad as Andy Reid or Rex Ryan. Seriously you need to tighten your Thursdays up a bit.
