NFL Betting – Preseason Week One Friday Night Previews

Friday Night Football – NFL Week One Pre-Season Matchups

As we head into the first full week of the 2010 NFL preseason there are some interesting position battles heating up on all 32 NFL teams.

Sunday’s Hall of Fame Game signalled the start of the 2010 preseason.

We’ve covered the Thursday games for Week 1 of the 2010 NFL preseason. Next up: the Friday games.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Philadelphia Eagles

Friday, August 13, 7:30 p.m. ET
NFL betting favorite: Eagles -3

Rapid Eagles fans want to see what Kevin Kolb can do but they’ll probably get their appetites only slightly wetted this Friday. Kolb is working hard in practice but Andy Reid will want to keep his crown jewel safe and limit his reps in the preseason.

That means Friday night could be the Michael Vick show. He’ll have some capable backups working with him in the offense – probably Jason Avant out wide and maybe Mike Bell at halfback.

David Garrard, Maurice Jones-Drew and Mike Sims-Walker all have job security but plenty of other Jaguars don’t. Troy Williamson should see some action as he tries to push Mike Thomas for the No.2 receiving job. Don Carey may even push Rashean Mathis at corner. And what about Tyson Alualu? We could see a revolving door of different Jags in action this Friday.

Buffalo Bills @ Washington Redskins

Friday, August 13, 7:30 p.m. ET
NFL betting favorite: Redskins -3

Believe it or not, this is one of the preseason games I’m most excited to see. The Bills are a nightmare but they’re deep at one position: running back. Dynamic rookie and first-round pick C.J. Spiller could get an extended look as the Bills assess what kind of workload he’s ready for. Their quarterback situation is also cloudy; Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm will battle for jobs this preseason.

Washington has some exciting questions to answer on offense as well. Who will emerge from the stable of veteran running backs that includes Clinton Portis, Larry Johnson, Ryan Torain and Willie Parker?

You can bet they’ll all run with purpose this preseason as they try to climb the depth chart.

Kansas City Chiefs @ Atlanta Falcons

Friday, August 13, 8:00 p.m. ET
NFL betting favorite: Falcons -3

Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons have high expectations for 2010 but most of their key position battles are solved; a few defensive spots are up for grabs and Sean Weatherspoon is working to win a starting linebacker job, but not a whole lot else is happening.

Kansas City, on the other hand, has plenty of questions to answer, largely because coach Todd Haley likes to play mind games with his “starters.” Even though Jamaal Charles was football’s best running back in the second half last season, he’s spent most of training camp behind Thomas Jones at tailback. Is the demotion simply a motivational tactic?

Friday will tell us a lot. If Charles doesn’t play much or at all, Haley was bluffing.

Look for rookie free safety Eric Berry to hit everything in sight and try to make a name for himself whenever he’s on the field against Atlanta.
