Going out to dinner with friends, watching a live concert, seeing our grandparents, all things that we took for granted before the pandemic. We have been thrilled to get some of these things back. This fall, fans in the stands of our favorite sports will be a welcome sight. Another return that I am very excited about is the return of NFL Preseason football.
Preseason Betting Strategies
While there was no preseason in 2020, long-term KrackWins members know that we historically do very well betting on these “games that don’t matter”. This year’s slate starts next week as the Steelers and the Cowboys kick off the Hall of Fame Game in Canton. No game has more people tune in at the start – to feel the joy of seeing football on their TV screens – only to tune out a short time later, once it becomes clear that the teams just started training camp. It undeniably is bad football. But we don’t need instant classics to build our bankrolls.
Preseason games may not count in the standings, but they pay like the regular season. Estimates show that professional bettors frequently account for 50-70% of the money bet on a preseason game. The bookmakers are vulnerable – that is why. Here are a few bedrock principles, as we salivate over a short, lucrative opportunity to feed.
1. Preseason = Looser Lines. Preseason games often have massive line moves as information is revealed during the week. Playing time plans, injuries, stars resting…all are revealed as the week goes on. Over my 30 years, I have developed my insider’s edge with superior information sources and handicapping market knowledge. Get on the right side early with KrackWins before the line moves.
2. Study the Coaches. While some coaches could care less about the results of these games, others are trying to set a tone and build a winning attitude. We look at the team and coaches historically in preseason.
3. Study the QBs. Is the team’s backup QB a veteran who will be going against a backup? Or is he a rookie getting his first action as a pro? What units (1st, 2nd, 3rd string) will be matching up later in the game make all the difference on where the result falls.
Betting the three weeks of NFL Preseason is a great way to start building your bankroll early BEFORE the regular season starts. The action begins this week, so sign up or up-level your package to ride into the regular season with extra profits!
Sports Betting Picks Recap
Let’s dive into my sports betting picks recap from last week. It was a winning week for KrackWins Nation, going 6-4-2 (+1.1 units) in MLB and 1-1 (even) on our PGA matchup. As I said last week, the volume will start picking up quickly. So be ready for the app notifications. This week, we started out 3-1 in Olympic basketball and have already sent out two NCAA Football bets, which you will surely want to grab before those lines move, and they will. More plays will be coming soon, including football futures for Premium members. Enjoy the last of the Dog Days, but stayed tuned in not only for plays but also my football primers, an exciting sweepstakes, and more.
