The NFL Preseason Might Just Be Practice, But You’re Gonna Need It

If you’re betting against the Jacksonville Jaguars in their Hall of Fame Game matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders, congratulations: your 2022 NFL season is off to a great start.

And if you went the other way, well, consider it a learning experience: never bet on the Jags.

But hey, learning experiences like this are valuable in their own way. Not as valuable as a win, but valuable enough to convert past future losses (ha!) into big payouts.

For bettors, the NFL preseason is here to do just that.

And while this preseason lasts just three games instead of four like previous years (that rule was introduced when the 2021 regular season expanded from 16 to 17 games), it’s still long enough to see what’s what.

If you’re an NFL player – even a veteran one – preseason betting brings the same benefits to your bottom line that the games themselves bring to the teams involved.

It’s an opportunity to see what you have.

After all, big stars and established players are a familiar commodity, and most teams aren’t too willing to risk injuring their anchors. Preseason is for the top talent only insofar as they can shake off any offseason rust.

It’s the other players – the ones fighting for a job or, in many cases, just a spot on the bench – that pre-season really matters to them.

And as a sports player, you have a huge advantage by rating these guys.

Remember that the NFL is a brutal, frenzied contact sport, and every team – from the strongest contenders to the Miami Dolphins – will lose starters by significant stretches. Knowing a thing or two about the players waiting in the wings can give you a real boost on the betting site.

For players new to the NFL, the preseason is important for other reasons.

Since the gaming limits are much lower, there is less risk for those with big bucks to burn. But even if you’re not a high roller (and most bettors – especially most new bettors – definitely aren’t), these NFL exhibition games will help you understand the odds, their presentation and any reasons why they might change, etc.

NFL Live Betting also lets you practice your bet-placing strategy in real-time and capture those dynamic odds at their highest values.

TL;DR: The preseason is for training, not just for the players. Weather also need exercise.

With that out of the way, here are all of the main game lines for you to practice next week (and no, we’re not posting recruiters yet because we need to practice too):
