HOU Texans Houston Texans at Los Angeles Rams LAR Rams

LAR L.A. Rams +2.5 (-113)

In a preseason game, I generally tend to start my handicapping with the underdog. Volatility is to be expected in these games with an odd allotment of backup players, some of whom are fighting for a roster spot. Therefore, I’m inclined to take the points with the underdog unless there’s a strong reason not to.

DET Lions Detroit Lions at Indianapolis Colts IND Colts
PickMONEYLINE
IND Indianapolis (+130)

The line might have moved a tad too much with the news that most Colts starters wouldn't be playing and I don't expect many entrenched Lions starters to be in there long either. With the proven Foles at the helm for the first quarter and Ehlinger able to make plays with his arm and feet after that, Indy has value on the moneyline.
