New coaches = NFL preseason cash


Many recreational players miss the fantastic profit opportunity presented by the NFL preseason. The sharp professional bettors recognize the enormous profit potential associated with the month of August and they use this time to build their bankroll for upcoming regular season.

Handicapping the NFL preseason has always relied on obtaining information and deciphering the gameplans of each team. Ten years ago was the golden age of preseason information as very few handicappers were using the internet and the online local newspapers provided a great look into a coach’s gameplan.

Things have since changed and now everyone is using cyberspace to access the same information as the professional bettors and the oddsmakers. While the times have changed, there is still one basic situation that continues to produce a profit year after year.

Situational handicapping is extremely important in the NFL preseason and focusing on the intention of the head coach is a crucial factor when analyzing an exhibition game. Certain coaches treat these games as scrimmages, while other coaches try harder to win.

New coaches have historically been a winning proposition in the preseason for different reasons. They are normally taking over a struggling team that is coming off a losing regular season. These organizations feel it necessary to establish a winning attitude, while successful teams with veteran coaching staffs often take a more conservative approach.

Young coaches bring new energy and optimism to a franchise which can translate to preseason success on the field. This has been evident over that past five years as new head coaches are 44-28 (61% ATS), including 8-3 ATS last year.

The most successful new coach last season was the Cleveland Brown’s Romeo Crennel who was 3-1 SU and a perfect 4-0 ATS, with all three straight-up wins coming outright as a pointspread underdog.

The San Francisco 49er’s Mike Nolan was also a perfect 4-0 ATS last year in his rookie season. Another successful young coach has been Jim Mora who is now 6-3 SU/ATS the past two seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, including 4-1 SU/ATS last year.

There is occasionally a coach that does not fare well in his rookie preseason. Last year the Miami Dolphin’s Nick Saban was just 1-4 SU and 0-3-2 ATS in his five preseason games as Saban’s high-profile status as a successful college coach hurt his team’s line value. The Dolphins were either favored or a dog of +3 or less in each of their five games, with three of those games being decided by exactly a three point margin.

This season there is an extremely high number of new coaches in the NFL. Below is a list of all ten new head coaches. Three are veteran coaches (Herman Edwards, Dick Jauron, and Art Shell), while the other seven are first-time rookie head coaches.

Herman Edwards – Kansas City Chiefs
Dick Jauron – Buffalo Bills
Art Shell – Oakland Raiders
Brad Childress – Minnesota Vikings
Gary Kubiak – Houston Texans
Scott Linehan – St. Louis Rams
Eric Mangini – New York Jets
Rod Marinelli – Detroit Lions
Mike McCarthy – Green Bay Packers
Sean Payton – New Orleans Saints

Keep an eye on these ten coaches and their teams as history indicates they should present solid value in this year’s NFL preseason.
