The 2020 NFL season is on our doorstep and bettors are taking notice. The season will begin with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans in Week 1 and bettors are going all-in on the defending Super Bowl champions.

 

Public is Heavy on Chiefs & Under

Despite opening as a 9.5-point favorite, the Chiefs are bringing in 67% of the total handle on bets on the spread via DraftKings Sportsbook. Kansas City also accounts for 73% of the handle for moneyline bets as well. It’s no surprise that bettors are putting their faith in the Chiefs. There is some uncertainty entering this season without any preseason games, but the Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes should have no problem coming out and firing on all cylinders in Week 1.

 

 

Seahawks & Cowboys Big Action

Kansas City isn’t the only team that’s seeing some love from the public. The Seattle Seahawks (-1.5) are bringing in 95% of the total handle. They are just one of a few games that are completely one-sided when it comes to the public. The Cowboys are bringing in 87% of the handle on the spread. Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliot are looking to start off the season with a bang against the Los Angeles Rams. Bettors seem to think they will.
