Week 1 is here! We’ve got a look at where lines closed for Sunday and we’ll be tracking how the games finish. Keep an eye out for bad beats, upsets, and more.
The 2020 NFL season is underway, and people have likely locked in most of their early wagering for Week 1. There is plenty of football into Monday, and in-game betting is only growing in popularity, but your basic point spread, moneyline, and point total bets are or will soon be finalized for much of the schedule.
We’re here to offer a basic recap of what the gambling gods have in store for us to open the NFL season. On Thursday, if you were wagering on the Chiefs 34-20 win over the Texans, the Chiefs covered the 9.5-point spread and the point total went over for anybody who got 53.5 or less. If you bet the Texans to cover the spread or moneyline, well, Sunday is a new opportunity!
Below we’ve listed out closing point spread, point total, and moneyline odds for Week 1’s Sunday slate. We’ll be tracking the results and make sure to note any bad beats, significant upsets, or any other points of note as we all look to cash some winning tickets!
