2020 NFL Monday Night Football Betting
Since its inception in 1970 Monday Night Football has been a sports programming institution that has often been emulated but rarely equaled. Although NBC Sunday Night Football has now emerged as the dominant and marquee pro football presentation each week, Monday Night Football still carries the cache of being a 50-year tradition and franchise in its own right. Due to the expanded prime time schedule of Thursday and Sunday night games, Monday Night Football has seen its schedule become less appealing than in its glory years. However, the NFL has worked with ESPN to provide a more attractive lineup befitting its status. For 2020 the schedule is vastly improved over more recent editions.
Monday Night Football Betting Schedule
Since 2006, week one features a Monday Night Football doubleheader and this year’s twin bill of the Steelers at Giants and Titans at Broncos is appointment viewing. Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is likely down to his last season and shot at a second Super Bowl title while Joe Judge begins his Giants coaching career. The Titans and quarterback Ryan Tannehill will try to prove that last year’s stunning playoff run was no fluke while Denver will be looking to maintain the momentum of a strong 2019 finish.
Week two wastes no time in welcoming Las Vegas to the NFL with the Saints and Raiders matching up from Sin City. Can anyone say party time?
Week three features what most expect to be an AFC championship game preview between futures board co-favorites Kansas City and Baltimore.
The Packers will host the Falcons in a week 4 matchup of NFC playoff contenders. Lambeau Field is always a draw and Green Bay’s home field is a true advantage.
No team moves the ratings needle like the Cowboys and they will be hosting the Cardinals in week six as a bona fide contender and NFC East favorite.
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers will invade MetLife Stadium in a winnable but important game at the Giants in week eight. MetLife Stadium is the venue again the following week as the Jets host the Tom Brady-less Patriots.
The Bears will host the Vikings in a week ten showdown of NFC North rivals with potentially high stakes and first place on the line in week 10.
Brady and his Bucs will host the Rams in week 11 as NFC playoff spots could well be on the line. Can the Rams get back to their 2018 NFC championship level after falling back last year?
Week 12 is a strong matchup of NFC playoff contenders with the Seahawks at the Eagles. Seattle’s suspect defense is a question that should be answered by the time this game is played.
The Bills will make two road appearances in the final four weeks of the season with a week 13 matchup at San Francisco and a week 16 showdown at New England in what could be for the AFC East division title.
