NFL Week 1 Lines

After one of the worst summers in American history, everyone is ready for some football in September. The 2020 NFL season starts off with a bang as the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs unveil their banner and present their rings in Arrowhead Stadium against one of the few teams to beat them last season, the Houston Texans. There will be plenty of suspense between that banger and the other 15 games slated to take place on Sunday and Monday, and people will be overjoyed to bet on the NFL once more.

Houston went into Kansas City and beat the Chiefs last year, but this offense isn’t going to be the same without the explosive Deandre Hopkins. Hopkins was traded to Arizona for peanuts, and while Deshaun Watson still has capable playmakers in Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, and Kenny Stills, none of them have the same top-tier talent as the three-time First Team All-Pro.

The opener to the 2020 season is still expected to be the highest scoring game of the week according to the oddsmakers. The over/under in this game is currently five points higher than any other Week 1 tilt per the NFL betting odds, and that’s because of Patrick Mahomes and this Kansas City offense. Mahomes is already the best quarterback in the league, and he has a slew of weapons in Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and the recently drafted Clyde Edwards-Helaire.

It will be awkward to not see No. 12 under center for the New England Patriots when they open their season against the Miami Dolphins. Tom Brady left New England after spending 20 years with the Patriots, creating the greatest dynasty of the modern era with Bill Belichick. Jarrett Stidham is the probable quarterback for Week 1, and it will be tough for the untested second-year player to fill even one of Brady’s shoes.

Minnesota and Green Bay will square off in a battle between the two best teams in the NFC North, and the winner of that game will have an early leg up in the race for the division title.

Aaron Rodgers has expressed his displeasure with the Packers this offseason after the team drafted Jordan Love in the first round instead of adding another offensive weapon, so the relationship between he and Matt LaFleur will be something to watch.

Brady’s first game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is the marquee 4:00 p.m. clash. He will look to lead his new team to a win against the New Orleans Saints, but the Saints have gone 13-3 in each of the last two years. Brady and Drew Brees are the two leading passers in the history of the NFL, and they are still playing well into their 40s. It will be a long time before any other quarterback challenges those future first ballot Hall of Famers for supremacy atop the passing charts.

The Rams said goodbye to Todd Gurley and Cooks this offseason, and Sean McVay will look to reclaim his title as an offensive guru after a subpar season from this team in 2019.

Meanwhile, Dallas has a lot to prove too. The Cowboys finally parted ways with Jason Garrett in the offseason, and they made this offense even more dynamic by drafting CeeDee Lamb in the first round. Dak Prescott now has arguably the most skill position talent in the league at his disposal, and this offense is expected to be elite.

The Week 1 Monday night doubleheader has become a tradition, and both these games should be entertaining. Pittsburgh should be much better on offense with Ben Roethlisberger back in the lineup, but the strength of the Steelers is now their defense. T.J. Watt and Devin Bush will look to keep Saquon Barkley in check and force Daniel Jones to beat the secondary in the early game.

Denver will welcome Tennessee to Mile High Stadium in the late game. The Broncos may have improved more than any other team this offseason by adding Melvin Gordon III, Jerry Jeudy, and K.J. Hamler to this offense, and the defense received some serious upgrades too with the addition of Jurrell Casey and A.J. Bouye. A healthy Bradley Chubb will make this unit even scarier, making the Broncos one of the sleeper teams coming into 2020.
