2020 NFL Week 1 Lines: KC -10 in Opener

NFL Week 1 Lines from Las Vegas

The NFL has announced that all preseason games have been eliminated for the 2020 season, sending bettors and bookmakers to reevaluate their Week 1 numbers. Six teams are expected to introduce new starting quarterbacks this season, including Tom Brady in Tampa Bay, Philip Rivers in Indianapolis and Cam Newton in New England. There were five head coaching changes in the offseason, including three hires that have never been a head coach in the league before. Without a formal preseason, how will these new pieces assimilate and be ready for Week 1?

Bettors seem to think there will be less scoring. Since the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook posted its Week 1 lines in May, nine games have seen their point totals drop, five have remained the same and two have gone up (Carolina-Las Vegas and San Francisco-Arizona).
