Note: 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. Records of respective coaches are displayed under "The Trends."

Nick Saban notched his first victory of the preseason this year, so he may not be as motivated to win this game as John Fox will be; Fox is now 13-5 in the preseason, which includes a 3-1 record in preseason Week 3. This line is high, so I'd probably tease it with the Steelers or Ravens.

Note: The line moved down to 4, so I've made this a Double Money Pick. I still think you should tease it down, however.


The Trends. Edge: Panthers.
  • Nick Saban is 2-5 in preseason games.
  • John Fox is 13-5 in preseason games.
  • John Fox is 3-1 in Preseason Week 3.
  • Opening Line: Panthers -3.

I made a huge mistake by picking the Chiefs over the Giants last week. I simply underestimated Tom Coughlin's desire to win in the preseason. Coughlin is only 6-4 with the Giants, but he was 3-1 last year, beating exhibition-powerhouses Carolina, New England and the Jets. Eric Mangini won last week, so the Giants should be able to improve to 3-0 in this neutral-field game. Like the Panthers contest, I'd tease this with an underdog.


The Trends. Edge: Giants.
  • Tom Coughlin is 6-4 in preseason games.
  • Eric Mangini is 1-1 in preseason games.
  • Opening Line: Giants -3
  • Total Movement: None.

Minnesota is coming off a victory at Pittsburgh, so the team could be in let-down mode against the Ravens, who have a knack for winning in the preseason.


The Trends. Edge: Ravens.
  • Brian Billick is 18-11 in preseason games.
  • Brad Childress is 1-1 in preseason games.
  • Opening Line: Vikings -2
  • Total Movement: None.

The Steelers are 0-2, and I know Bill Cowher would like to avoid an 0-3 start. And it's not like Andy Reid cares about winning in the preseason anyway.


The Trends. Edge: Steelers.
  • Bill Cowher is 28-29 in preseason games.
  • Andy Reid is 11-19 in preseason games.
  • Opening Line: Eagles -3
  • Total Movement: None.
  • Weather: TBA.

Bill Parcells loves winning in the preseason. I can't say the same about Mike Nolan, who is an even 3-3 in his two exhibition campaigns.


The Trends. Edge: Cowboys.
  • Mike Nolan is 3-3 in preseason games.
  • Bill Parcells is 19-7 in preseason games.
  • Opening Line: No Line

The Game. Edge: N/A.

I hate betting against teams that are 0-2 in the preseason, but I'll make an exception in this spot. While both teams are coming off blowout losses, the Falcons have outscored their opponents 60-17 in Preseason Week 3 under Jim Mora Jr.


The Trends. Edge: Patriots.
  • Jim Mora Jr. is 7-4 in preseason games.
  • Jim Mora Jr. is 2-0 in Preseason Week 3.
  • Jeff Fisher is 20-18 in preseason games.
  • Jeff Fisher is 3-6 in Preseason Week 3.
  • Opening Line: Titans -2
  • Total Movement: None.

Herman Edwards is 0-2, and is probably feeling some heat from anxious Chiefs fans who want to see their team win. I expect Kansas City to win big at home.


The Trends. Edge: Patriots.
  • Scott Linehan is 1-1 in preseason games.
  • Herman Edwards is 15-8 in preseason games.
  • Opening Line: Chiefs -4
  • Total Movement: None.
  • Weather: TBA.

Mike Holmgren takes his third preseason game seriously, so the Seahawks should be able to beat the Chargers and Marty Schottenheimer, who is 9-13 in the preseason.


The Trends. Edge: Seahawks.
  • Mike Holmgren is 14-16 in preseason games.
  • Mike Holmgren is 3-0 in Preseason Week 3 w/Seahawks.
  • Marty Schottenheimer is 9-13 in preseason games.
  • Opening Line: Chargers -3
