Preseason trends sway NFL odds this week
August 08, 2013
Tennessee has played 12 games at home in the preseason since 2007 and never lost.
Pittsburgh has played 11 times at home in August over the same period and never lost.
Who says NFL trends do not extend to the preseason?
Both teams are at home in Week 1 of the 2013 exhibition schedule. Both are favored by 2.5 points, according to Bodog sportsbook.
The trends don’t stop there. Thursday’s annual preseason tilt between the Eagles and Patriots carries plenty of off-field drama with it. The Aaron Hernandez story continues to unfold and Riley Cooper will hit the field a week after making racist threats.
And the Eagles have won six preseason games in a row (5-1 ATS) while the Patriots are 0-6 ATS in their past 6 preseason matches.
