DraftKings is going big for Week 1 of the 2020 NFL season with massive contests on Opening Night and the first Sunday of the season. The NFL betting season is fast approaching and DraftKings users will have tons of ways to win when Week 1 arrives.

The season will kick off with a massive Opening Night contest when the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans meet for the first game of the season. The action will continue on Sunday when the rest of the NFL kicks off.

Sign up with DraftKings HERE in time for Week 1 of the NFL season and claim up to $1,000 in free bets with your first deposit.

The Opening Night DFS contest will feature $2.5 million in prizes with $1 million going to first place. The entry fee is only $10 which means that bettors don’t have to risk much to get in on this huge prize pool.

DraftKings’ Opening Sunday Fantasy Football Millionaire will put $5 million in prizes on the table. And you guessed it, first place will take home a whopping $1 million. Just like the Opening Night contest, this entry fee is affordable at a reasonable $5.

NFL Week 1 Is Almost Here

The Chiefs will accept their Super Bowl rings on Thursday, Sept, 10. in the first game of the 2020 season. They’ll do so against the Texans, a team they beat in a ridiculous comeback during their Super Bowl run. Although Chiefs-Texans headlines the Week 1 slate of games, there are tons of intriguing matchups on the docket.

NFL Week 1 Schedule:

Thursday, Sept. 10:
Texans @ Chiefs, 8:20 p.m. ET

This jam-packed weekend is filled with intriguing matchups and tons of options for DraftKings users. Week 1 is always tough because we have no idea who will come into the season firing on all cylinders. In fact, it will be even tougher this year with no preseason games. With that said, there are opportunities to take advantage of this uncertainty by cashing in early and winning some contests.
