The 2014 NFL Preseason is Here!

2014 NFL Preseason BettingAugust 7, 2014 - It's finally here… The NFL preseason with a full sixteen game slate stretched out over a three day period.

This means three days of 2014 NFL Preseason betting to get you warmed up for the regular NFL season which starts on Thursday, September 4, 2014!

There could be some interesting matchups with position battles in all the games.

Starters as a rule play sparingly with most teams not going past the first quarter. The offense play calling and defensive sets are usually pretty vanilla.


But it’s a time for the fans also to round into regular season shape, with their favorite lounge chair, their favorite beer and snacks and time to log into their online sportsbook.

Seattle travels to Denver for a Super Bowl XLVIII rematch. They also meet in the regular season on September 21st in Seattle. Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll wouldn't give specifics but he said his starters would play some in Thursday night's preseason opener against Denver.

Carroll said after a walkthrough practice Wednesday that he wants his starters to get a little time but the bulk of the game will be played by younger players. Carroll specifically said rookie linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (oblique) will not play.

Denver will be missing two starters, RB Montee Ball out with an appendectomy and WR Emmanuel Sanders out with a right quad strain.

There will be a ton of battles but probably none bigger than with Cleveland where QB's Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer. Manziel will start the Cleveland Browns’ exhibition opener — on the sideline. Browns coach Mike Pettine chose Brian Hoyer (Michigan State) as the starting quarterback for Saturday’s game in Detroit, giving the veteran the first chance to impress before Manziel takes the field. Pettine said the decision to start Hoyer was based on his performance in training camp.

In Minnesota another QB battle is brewing between veteran Matt Cassell battling first round draft pick Teddy Bridgewater. Bridgewater will get some extensive time with the first team offense.

So grab a cold one and tell the wife or girlfriend you will see her in February.
