Saturday’s Week 2 NFL Preseason Trifecta


After checking out the NFL odds board, I noticed that the line on this game had tumbled from Patriots -3 to where it now stands, at the Friday morning writing, to Patriots -1. Most of us know how crucial the number three is in soccer and anytime the number moves from it, I get suspicious, especially in preseason play. The Pats destroyed the Lions 31-3 last week in their preseason opener and it wouldn’t surprise me one little bit to see Belichick tinker with the game plan to understand how his troops perform under unique conditions. There is nothing that the training legend enjoys over a hybridvehicle, a player who can be called on to execute a variety of jobs and assume unique roles. This sport smacks of the ideal time for New England to start experimenting which means financing a team like the Titans in our NFL selections is the smart move ahead. Grab the number.

Betting preseason football is always a small roll of the dice but there are a couple of trends we could sniff out that may give us a lean one way or another. Perhaps chief among these are the coaching records that may indicate how significant a head coach views losses and wins in the exhibition season. Look no farther than Detroit’s Matt Patricia who possesses a 1-4 preseason album versus Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien who seems to put great import on Week 2 of the preseason slate with a 4-1 mark in these competitions. Moreover, Detroit will have to rely on former San Jose State, and also sixth-round select of this 2014 draft, David Fales as well as signed journeyman Josh Johnson to direct the attack with No. 1 backup Tom Savage in the sidelines courtesy of a potential concussion suffered in last week’s loss to New England. This doesn’t bode well for Detroit and consequently we’ll place our dough on the Texans.
Final rating: Texans 27 — Lions 17
Dallas (0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS) vs. LA Rams (0-1 SU, 0-1 ATS)

Both of these clubs failed to get the endzone last week as Dallas dropped 17-9 into the 49ers while the Rams fell 14-3 to the Raiders. But once again, something smells a little fishy in this as the Rams started as three-point home favorites but now the Cowboys are derived from two to 2 1/2 point road chalk. The big names on either side won’t find much if any actions in this meaningless preseason lean but that I would not be surprised to see that the Cowboys emerging victorious, or at least covering the amount in what is shaping up to be a close competition. The Rams are 1-5 ATS in their last six Saturday games and the Cowboys are seeking to put emphasis in their running attack now that it seems like Ezekiel Elliot is intent on withdrawing out a Le’Veon Bell this year and sit out until he gets exactly what he wants. This looks like a ground-and-pound matchup and because Dallas needs to understand what they need in the backfield, expect them to use their key backs more than the Rams. Todd Gurley won’t observe the area and that is good news to the Boys.
Final rating: Cowboys 17 — Rams 14
