The 2020 NFL regular season kicks off Thursday night in Kansas City, and if you’re a bettor we’ve got you covered for picks against the spread for every Week 1 game and season win total over/under predictions for every team.
The game of the week in the NFL’s opening weekend will happen in New Orleans, where Drew Brees and the Super Bowl-ready Saints will take on NFC South rival Tampa Bay and new Bucs quarterback Tom Brady. The Bucs have been a popular preseason Super Bowl choice for bettors at +1400, but according to our NFL expert Steven Ruiz, you should avoid putting money on the Bucs to cover in Week 1.
Here are our locks of the week for Week 1:
Steven Ruiz: Saints -3.5 over Buccaneers
Continuity is going to be a big thing following a weird offseason. I think the Saints have it. They’re bringing basically everybody back from last year’s NFC South championship team. The Bucs, on the other hand, are working in a new quarterback with a new offense.
Charles Curtis: Steelers -5.5 over Giants
The Giants defense isn’t good enough to contain a now-healthy Big Ben, and I don’t see how Daniel Jones can operate against a stifling Steelers defense that will pick off at least one of his passes.
Nick Schwartz: Eagles -5.5 over Redskins
Washington Wide receiver Terry McLaurin had 255 receiving yards against the Eagles in 2019, but Darius Slay is now in the Eagles backfield to lock him down. The Football Team doesn’t have any other established offensive weapons for Dwayne Haskins, and I’m going to need to see Antonio Gibson produce before I believe the fantasy hype.
