It’s the start of a new NFL season! The entire year of 2020 has thrown most of us off course in some way, and the NFL is no different. Fans may think they have an idea of how their favorite teams should perform, but until the players get on the field and play games it’s difficult to tell exactly how the season will progress. Every team is 0-0 and hope springs eternal throughout almost every fan base.
Week 1 of the NFL season can also be make or break those placing wagers on the games. Lines will be difficult due to no preseason games, so the most attractive bet may not be the safest one.
For the 2020 NFL season, several of the BTSC staff will be picking every game against the spread and the over/under point totals. We are doing things a little different this year and including the Thursday games. Please remember we are not experts on betting or any kind of sports gamblers. We are just a group of Steelers’ fans saying who we think will come through each week.
We are using a new program called Tallysight this season. It will allow us to show picks in a much more “friendly to the eye” manner. To understand how it works, the default tab is for our picks against the spread. To see the over/under picks, click the “O/U” tab in the upper right.
So here are the picks for the games for Week 1 of the NFL season. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
