The NFL’s four-game preseason schedule finally comes to an end this Thursday night with all 32 teams in action. While none of these exhibition games count in the actual standings, they still count with the books if you are placing any bets on them.

While most sports bettors may have already moved on to handicapping the opening round of action in Week 1 of the NFL regular season, there is still some betting value on the board for this final round of preseason contests.

The first thing to keep in mind is that these games will be filled with backups trying to make one last impression on their current team or possibly a different NFL team if they end up getting cut from the final roster. This makes it hard to focus on any kind of spread that may be posted at your favorite online sportsbook. You are more interested in which team will actually win the game straight-up. This automatically adds a certain amount of value to any teams getting points for this final exhibition.

A quick look at the standings for the first three weeks of preseason games is a good starting point for Week 4. Starting in the AFC, the New England Patriots, Buffalo Bills, Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens and the Oakland Raiders are all 3-0.

Right off the bat, you should take a closer look at New England at home against the New York Giants regardless of the spread. The Patriots’ second and third-team players are probably better than most of the Giants’ starters. This is a clear case where the better team should win by simply showing up.

Another solid play would be Baltimore on the road against the Washington Redskins. Ravens’ head coach John Harbaugh might have a bonus built into his contract for winning preseason games. His teams have gone a perfect 4-0 in the preseason straight-up the past three seasons. Baltimore is 13-2 against the spread in its last 15 exhibition games counting three wins and three covers this time around. It also helps that Washington (1-2 SU and ATS) has scored a grand total of 42 points combined in its first three preseason contests.

Over in the NFC, the Giants along with the Minnesota Vikings and San Francisco 49ers are three teams with a perfect 3-0 SU mark in the preseason. I am already going against New York against New England, but the 49ers could be a solid play at home against the Los Angeles Chargers.

San Francisco slid to just four wins in 2018 behind some very high expectations. Early injuries helped to derail that season, so this team is looking for a fast start in 2019. Everyone knows that going 4-0 in the preseason has little to no bearing on how a team will play when the games start counting for real, but it can still be a motivating factor heading into a Week 1 road game against Tampa Bay.

On the other side of the coin are the teams that have already lost their first three preseason games. That group is made up of the Indianapolis Colts, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFC. Of those three teams, I would take a closer look at the Colts on the road against Cincinnati. They just had their starting quarterback, Andrew Luck retire. A win on Thursday night is not going to solve that problem, but a decent effort by any of the quarterbacks on the roster looking to his place will help the cause.

The teams in the NFC still looking for their first preseason win include the Detroit Lions and the Atlanta Falcons, who have actually lost four times counting the Hall of Fame Game. I would take the Falcons over the Jaguars in a battle of two teams that have lost all of their exhibitions so far.
