The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Futures, Win Totals, and Week One Betting Odds Set for Action

Futures, Win Totals, and Week One Betting Odds Set for Action

Future win totals and more

โ€œAre You Ready for Some Football?โ€ Equally important, are you ready for some
NFL betting? COVID-19 may have sports fans knocked down but not out. Fortunately, the National Football League is providing the ultimate smelling salt. First was the highly successful NFL Draft. The 2020 NFL Draft set records for television viewership. Sports starved fans couldnโ€™t get enough of its content. Following the draft, the league released its entire 2020 schedule. Sportsbooks wasted no time posting odds on the week one games. Additionally, post-draft futures and win totals are available. Now is a great time to look at highlights!

Texans and Chiefs Kickoff the 2020 NFL Season

To begin with mark your calendars for Thursday, September 10, 2020. NBC will get its traditional NFL opening game with an AFC playoff rematch. Kansas Cityโ€™s Arrowhead Stadium is the venue for the Chiefs and Houston Texans. Certainly, there will be a ceremony commemorating KCโ€™s Super Bowl championship. And there is no doubt that betting sites for the NFL will have record handles.

Subsequently, the Texans return to the stadium where they blew a 24-0 second-quarter lead in the 2019 AFC divisional playoffs. Kansas City stormed back with 41 consecutive points in a ferocious comeback for the ages. The Chiefs 51-31 win sent them on the way to Super Bowl glory three weeks later. Meanwhile, Houston general manager and coach Bill Oโ€™Brien is on the hot seat. To illuminate Oโ€™Brien has blown up much of his roster with highly questionable moves. KC is a 10-point chalk for this one. Meanwhile, many gamblers are taking Houston under its win total of 7.5.

Dolphins and Patriots Turn the Page

It follows that one of the highest-profile games of week one involves the Patriots and Dolphins. New England opened as a 6.5-point home chalk. Of course, New England will officially turn the page with the post-Tom Brady era. While Miami could well be ushering in the Tua Tagovailoa era.

Miami has been getting some online sportsbook love for over the win total of six. Owing to their draft of Tagovailoa and solid finish to 2019 have bettors taken note. New England has an interesting win total of nine. Fashion the many true believers of Bill Belichick betting the over. โ€œThe Hoodieโ€ now has his chance to prove he can win just as well without Brady. Counter to that is some gamblers that believe the dynasty is a house of cards without the GOAT. In view of all, that and more betting action for this one should be heavy and split.

How โ€˜Bout Them, Cowboys!

Owing to their critically acclaimed 2020 NFL Draft have the Cowboys gotten respect. For that reason, the Dallas opener at the Rams is a focal point of week one. On this occasion, Los Angeles will be christening new SoFi Stadium as 3-point underdogs. Just one year ago Rams coach Sean McVay was touted as the guru that would reinvent the game. Los Angeles is now a team on the brink after missing the playoffs last year. And gamblers are split on how to read LA.

Consider the Rams win total of 8.5. To some handicappers that is seen as a bargain price on a beaten favorite. Others believe that McVay was exposed by Belichick in LAโ€™s Super Bowl loss in February 2019. Rams quarterback Jared Goff dropped significantly last year. For that reason, are there doubts about a Los Angeles resurgence.

Accordingly, the Cowboys win a total of 10 looks right on the money. Of major concern is that Dallas is one of the NFLโ€™s most public teams. Overlays on an overhyped Cowboys club are the norm with the NFL odds. However new coach Mike McCarthy adds considerable cache to Dallas. He won consistently and big as coach of the Packers. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones knew he needed a coach with gravitas. McCarthy has already raised the bar in Big D!
