2020 NFL Preseason Week 1 Betting
Week one of the preseason can be quite a handicapping challenge, at least for the average gambler. Yet many sharps and veterans literally live for the Preseason because of what they consider to be unique wagering advantages that can’t be found once the regular season is underway. The main angle that the best of the best work on for the first week of preseason is to devour as much information as is possible to find out which teams will be playing what players and for how long during these games. Live, quarter, and half-time betting are among the favorite weapons of pros during the preseason. Additionally, there are intangible factors that might come into play such as the opening of a new stadium, star player debuts (albeit often briefly), and the christening of new stadiums.
The Giants and Jets are always a fun preseason game as they share MetLife Stadium. Additionally, Joe Judge will be making his head coaching debut for Big Blue.
Speaking of head coaching debuts Matt Rhule will lead the Panthers out of the tunnel for the first time against the Jaguars. Jacksonville is once again at rock bottom and will try and sort out its quarterback mess over the preseason. Rhule’s first order of business at Carolina was to send Cam Newton packing.
Los Angeles spent over a billion dollars on the new state of the art SoFi Stadium which will host both of its tenants as the Rams host the Saints and the Chargers host the Cowboys. Both visiting teams have large fan contingents which should help fill the stands and, most important of all, luxury suites. Dallas is a perpetual public betting favorite but this time it may be legitimate as they had a strong 2020 NFL Draft led by top pick CeeDee Lamb of Oklahoma. Just as important is the arrival of former Green Bay Packers Super Bowl-winning coach Mike McCarthy.
New England will begin its Tom Brady-less era at home against the Lions. While the Raiders will play their first game as “Las Vegas” against the Seahawks at Seattle. As for Brady he will be playing his first-ever game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Pittsburgh, where the GOAT had many a big game against the Steelers.
Speaking of rookie initiation how about Miami first-round pick Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins taking on the Falcons in Atlanta.
There is nothing like a football game at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, even in preseason, and the Arizona Cardinals will visit the Packers. Jordan Love was drafted by the Pack as their quarterback of the future and should make his debut for the green and gold in this matchup.
Kevin Stefanski will be the latest potential victim to coach the Browns as Cleveland visits the Bears in Chicago. Eagles Super Bowl hero Nick Foles arrives at the Windy City to compete for the starting quarterback job against Mitchell Trubisky.
Ron Rivera will make his Redskins coaching debut in a home game against the Tennessee Titans. Rivera is the latest man that will try to bash his head against owner Dan Snyder’s concrete wall of ineptitude.
The defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs will host the Bengals and the top pick of the 2020 NFL Draft, quarterback Joe Burrow.
The Broncos finished strong last year which has Denver fans excited and a sellout should be expected when the defending NFC champion 49ers come calling in the last game of week one preseason.
