We delivered again with our NFL preseason best betting play as the New Orleans Saints gain the pointspread cover getting +3 ½ points last night to the New England Patriots. Betting NFL preseason is all about getting information and we felt good with the nugget of info we had on this one. The Patriots and Saints were practicing and scrimmaging against one another meaning the defenses would dominate this game. That is what exactly happened last night as the Patriots push across just one touchdown and the Saints kick two field goals for all the scoring in this game. The best NFL pick from the Friday preseason card comes from the week one battle between the Cleveland Browns and Detroit Lions. These two NFL teams will begin from Detroit at 7:30PM Eastern Time. With our pro football best bet we will play on the Detroit Lions -3 points against the Cleveland Browns. The betting lines used for this NFL pick came courtesy of Top Bet sportsbook.
The Lions opened in the wagering as a -4 ½ point favorite with the total lined at 36 points. The early money came heavy on Cleveland as Detroit is now just a -3 point favorite. The over under moved up a bit to a current line of 36 ½ points. Money line bettors playing on the Detroit Lions side will lay -170 odds. Those who bet the Cleveland Browns on the money line will get back +160 odds for the team to win tonight with the points no factor in the wager.
The Detroit Lions have shown a passion to score points in the preseason when playing at home. Their quarterback rotation looks solid with Matthew Stafford seeing a series or two and then turning it over to veteran NFL quarterback Shaun Hill who has experience starting in the NFL. The Boise St rookie Kellen Moore was an accurate passer in college and that should translate some here in the preseason as he will throw against a third string Cleveland Browns defense in the second half. Rookie Brandon Weeden will get the start for Cleveland as they look to improve off an inept offense a season ago. He will be followed by Colt McCoy and veteran backup Seneca Wallace. Thaddeus Lewis will likely see work late in the fourth quarter and this signal caller is out of Duke. The difference on the field is the playmakers for the Lions are much better quality than those from Cleveland and that makes them the choice at the online sportsbooks.
