NFL Preseason Bitcoin Betting Tips
Is it August already? That can only mean one thing: NFL preseason games are ready for kickoff, and we have a huge selection of Bitcoin betting lines open at Nitrogen Sports. But don’t jump in quite yet … you’ll want to take notice of a few subtle differences between NFL preseason and the regular season. It’s more unpredictable than you think, since preseason includes games with teams still trying to perfect their systems. Some might try a few experimental plays, while others might not even play key players — giving reserves a chance to play. You can also expect a few roster changes midway through the football preseason.
Placing wagers during the preseason can be exciting, so we’ll attempt to break down important details you’ll need in order to maximize each week.
Training camp details
You’ll want to really understand the ins and outs of what happened during each team’s training camp. The general public are in the dark simply because coaches aren’t going to say much; preferring to focus on preparing their teams. Information is vital to get even the slightest edge, so read up on every training camp report you can find for possible preseason lineup changes or fringe player promotions, because these changes may form the basis of your wagers in the coming weeks.
Camp injuries are a possibility, so make sure you’re on top of it. Even a slight injury or a player hinting that they are not 100% healed from a previous injury is an important piece of information. A player’s health status will impact your future bets, so adjust accordingly.
New coaching staff, new plays
Players come and go during the offseason, and this is true for the coaching staff as well. You might see someone else leading a team’s defense, which can suggest a new approach and outlook. However, a drastic change in a team’s playbook is unlikely; just a few tweaks here and there to complement potential new roster additions.
But let’s say a new head coach comes in and is tempted to try a tad bit harder to win a preseason game in hopes of eliminating any doubts fans may have on him taking on such an important role. This is an example of an angle that can affect a team’s value, so it would be best to understand which teams care about the preseason and which teams do not.
Study the lineups each week
Expect dramatic lineup changes from preseason game to preseason game.
It should be no surprise to see star players playing less or missing a game entirely, giving newcomers more time to adjust. Week-in-week-out coaches will be making their final cuts and polishing up their roster. As playbooks slowly get finalized the final weeks will be interesting since clearer pictures emerge as to what to expect from each team once the regular season rolls out.
Don’t forget about the quarterbacks – the most important piece on a team’s offense. QB starters might get a few reps during the preseason, but you can expect that young players are going to get their feet wet before the regular season to shake off the nerves. Some teams might have veteran QB’s in their stable who may find some playtime during the preseason, so be sure to identify which team has a strong rotation of quarterbacks.
Treat this month as the time to get acquainted with the changes in each team. A warm up, if you will, before regular season gets into full swing in September.
