NFL Games of the Year from Las Vegas
The NFL Games of the Year market has always been a popular one for Las Vegas locals, but it could be even more valuable for this topsy-turvy 2020 season. We know that NFL Week 1 will generate a huge betting handle, but let’s be real…We’re pretty much guessing, aren’t we? Without a formal offseason and zero preseason games, I have no idea how Tom Brady and the revamped Bucs will look in Week 1 against New Orleans in the opener. How quickly will that offense gel? I have no clue. We don’t know how they will look in Week 1, but we can project how they will look later in the season. If you’re willing to give Brady and Co. the benefit that they will have things figured out by November, there are plenty of opportunities to get ahead of the market.

One of my favorite preseason looks is Tampa Bay -3 at the New York Giants for Monday Night Football in Week 8. At FanDuel, the Giants are underdogs in six of their first seven games and getting at least six points in four of those contests. There is a very good chance that New York enters this contest 2-5, or maybe worse. If that is the case, do we really think Brady goes off at -3 on Monday Night Football against a first-year head coach and Daniel Jones?
