NFL football is finally back! The 2020 season officially kicks off with a match-up between the Houston Texans and the Kansas City Chiefs. The last time we saw the Chiefs, they were Super Bowl Champions in Miami. Now those same Chiefs look to knock off the newly paid DeShaun Watson, and the Texans on Thursday Night Football. The battle between the 2 richest quarterbacks in the NFL looks to be a blockbuster. But who will win? The Flagrant Foul is on top of everything in the NFL, and this is our betting tips for week 1.
Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs: The Super Bowl Champs are home at Arrowhead for the first game of the 2020 season. But with limited fans, home field advantage might not prove to be a big deal though. The Chiefs are returning most of all their starters this year. Patrick Mahomes leads the way with their high powered offense, against a Houston Texans team that is a little depleted of talent. After trading away DeAndre Hopkins, Houston looks to attack teams by committee. In most situations, betting the under on a Kansas City game would be foolish, but in this case it makes sense. The Super Bowl hangover is real. Not only for the teams that wins, but also for the ones that win. Especially the first game. Trying to duplicate the offense they had last year, wont be hard. But to do it with minimal fans, and after a whole summer of partying will be. Take the UNDER 53.5 points in the game.
New York Jets vs Buffalo Bills: This game screams boring. NO OFFENSE at all. Trust me I wouldn’t watch this if I had to. But what I will do is bet on it. Everyone is already crowing the Buffalo Bills as the new division winner now that the Patriots lost Tom Brady. I’m not. They have a great defense, but until they can prove that their offense can perform week end and week out, I’m not taking them to win anything. The Jets are no better. They haven’t proven anything, but I do believe their quarterback is better than people give him credit for. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the Jets cover the spread. BET JETS +6.5.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs New Orleans: TOMpa Bay is officially a thing. Brady’s first game as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer is finally here and its against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. This game screams excitement. Everyone in America will be tuned in on Sunday to see what Brady has left. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Rob Gronkowski and Leonard Fournette are just a few a his weapons, and hes gonna need all of them against the Saints offense. The Voodoo Dome used to be a hard place to play, but with no fans, can they generate the same electricity? This is a no brainier. BET OVER 48.5 points.
