Best Preseason Sportsbook Bets to make This Friday

AFC Divisional Playoffs Odds - Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Kansas City Chiefs Picks

There’s still a good chunk of August before online NFL betting fans can hit up the best sportsbooks to cash in on another appealing season. However, that doesn’t mean that players can’t cash in on a little football wagering action right now.

The NFL preseason may not be the most popular spectacle, but it gives fans an undeniable look at their team – especially the youngest and newest additions. And, most importantly, it gives US sportsbook players the opportunity to bet on the sport they love.

The NFL preseason kicked off last week with the annual Hall of Fame game. A week after, the action continued with a flurry of contests on Thursday. The action will continue this Friday with a total of three games for fans to wager on: perhaps setting up the perfect parlay. Let’s take a look at what kind of odds – one of the best sportsbooks on the planet, has put together for this contest.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New York Giants – Friday, August 11th

When: 7:00 pm ET

Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford

TV: NFL Game Pass

Stream: NFL Game Pass

Online NFL Betting Odds:

Pittsburgh Steelers +3 ½ (-110)      37 (-105)

New York Giants -3 ½ (-110)           37 (-115)

Both the Steelers and the Giants have been dealing with tumultuous offseasons. Pittsburgh’s best running back Le’Veon Bell – who might actually be the best back in the league, is currently holding out for more money. Likewise, Eli Manning, the Giants’ quarterback who is notoriously better in the postseason, has got caught up in a memorabilia scandal that question’s the Super Bowl winning quarterback’s integrity.

This game gives both teams an opportunity to bury those storylines and focus on the most important thing of all: winning some football games. Interestingly enough, the Giants come into this game as the favorites. However, New York is usually slow out of the gate, which makes a bet on Pittsburgh seem like the better, and more profitable, option.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Cincinnati Bengals – Friday, August 11th

When: 7:30 pm ET

Where: Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati

TV: Local Broadcasts

Stream: NFL Game Pass

Online NFL Betting Odds:

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +2 (-110)   37 (-110)

Cincinnati Bengals -2 (-110)          37 (-110)

US sportsbooks are going with the Bengals over the Bucs, but online NFL betting players shouldn’t share that sentiment. Cincinnati struggled to win 6 games last season, while the Bucs were on the verge of making a postseason appearance. Sure, both teams have had an offseason to improve, but it just feels like Tampa Bay is the better team heading into this contest.

San Francisco 49ers vs. Kansas City Chiefs – Friday, August 11th

When: 9:00 pm ET

Where: Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City

TV: Local Broadcasts

Stream: NFL Game Pass

Online NFL Betting Odds:

San Francisco 49ers +4 (-115)         38 (-105)

Kansas City Chiefs -4 (-105)           38 (-115)

This seems like a fairly easy bet, especially for the preseason. The Chiefs are a much better team and should have no problem covering the 4 point spread, beating the totals line, and usurping San Fran as well. The only thing that could hold back Kansas City is poor play from their subs, but there’s a good chance Andy Reid will have them ready to go out of the gate. Bottom line, a sportsbook bet on the Chiefs can’t go wrong.
