For those of you looking for more editorial coverage of the final week of the NFL preseason, let me try to answer that request in this blog.
Here at Covers.com, we try our best to supply information that will help average Joe’s and sharp bettors too. We aim to dish the goods on who’s hurt, why this line is going up, how the weather could drop that total and which games are getting hit hardest by wiseguys.
Essentially, we’re trying to do all the prep work so that you could hop onto Covers.com five minutes before kickoff and safely make an educated bet four minutes later.
That’s our goal.
We can’t do that in Week 4 of the preseason. How can I breakdown the Broncos-Cardinals game tonight, when Denver coach John Fox won’t even tell us who’s going to quarterback his team?
You’ve got coaches trying to make decisions on the lowest guys on the totem pole of their rosters, backup players afraid of getting hurt and bookmakers putting $100 to $500 limit bets. That’s what this week is all about.
We’ve done our best to supply our readers with as much helpful editorial content for the kickoff of the college football season. It doesn’t mean we’re hating on the NFL. Our coverage was balls to the wall on NFL preseason and future betting last month and it’ll only get better next week as we inch closer to Thursday’s season opener.
But for now, let’s go big on the college kiddies and ignore the NFL scrimmages tonight.
