In the grand scheme of things, wins and losses don’t mean anything in the preseason. I certainly wouldn’t mention that to the guys fighting for a roster spot heading into the final week of the preseason schedule. There are going to be a number of players who are on the bubble at the moment and who are fighting to stay with the starters. That alone tends to make the final batch of preseason games a little more intense, plus we will probably get to see more of the starters as they get ready for the start of the regular season. All of that said, it is still difficult to routinely pick winners in the preseason, but we are going to give it one more shot as we prepare for the bigger games to come. For the purposes of this piece, we are going to look at 3 teams who we believe will lose this weekend so you can bet against their NFL Preseason Odds.
Sure Losers Preseason Week 4 | 2022 NFL Betting Analysis
Houston Texans Vs San Francisco 49ers
In San Francisco, the 49ers are preparing to start the season with Trey Lance under center. Like it or not, this is his team now, with Jimmy G still looking for a place to land as opposed to holding a clipboard on the sidelines. The 49ers have been solid in their first 2 preseason games, winning both and looking stout on the defensive side of the football. That could prove to be a problem for a Houston Texans team that is probably going to have a rather miserable season. They have, though, won both of their preseason games, and while I shouldn’t totally write them off in this one, especially since they are playing at home, I still think they are going to be outmatched versus a very good 49ers team.
Seattle Seahawks Vs Dallas Cowboys
Speaking of Jimmy Garoppolo, there is still a belief that he might make his way to Seattle, especially when you consider that the Seahawks are 0-2 in the preseason and have managed just 36 points in those 2 outings. The fans are growing restless in Seattle and a move for a proven QB might just help alleviate some of the stress that they are currently feeling. Their final game will take them to Dallas to face the Cowboys, who have split their 2 games to this point. They did not look good in Week 1, taking a ton of penalties, but they were more disciplined in their 2nd game and should be ready to take another step forward this week. I am all over the Cowboys in this one.
Minnesota Vikings Vs Denver Broncos
We have always said that it’s not a good idea to put too much stock in what happens in the preseason, but there has to be some cause for concern for fans of the Vikings. Not only are they 0-2 through the opening 2 games, they have also seen their offense fail to deliver the goods. Minnesota has managed just 27 points in those 2 losses and now need to go on the road to a stadium that is always tough to play in. The Broncos haven’t exactly been setting the world on fire, but I expect more out of them in their final preseason outing.
I have read enough, I need to place my bet now. What to do?
