NFL Preseason Quarterback Matchups
This will be updated before every slate of preseason games.
Joe Flacco is expected to get the night off as the team prepares for him to be the team’s starter until Zach Wilson returns from his knee injury. Therefore, we should see Mike White play the entire first half and may even start the second half before turning the offense over to Chris Streveler to close out the game.
The Falcons are expected to start Marcus Mariota, who will play for a couple of series before turning it over to rookie Desmond Ridder for the rest of the game. There is a chance the Falcons let QB/TE Feleipe Franks play under center in the fourth quarter.
I’m not sure there is an angle to take advantage of here as the spread/total seems about right. Both Ridder and Streveler have a ton of rushing upside, which means they could use their legs to bail them out against soft/vanilla preseason defenses.
I may be looking to come in on the over for the second half when the time comes. Be sure to follow me in the Action app to get notified if/when I make a move on any pre-game, in-game bet.
