The COVID-19 pandemic may be altering the entire sports landscape, but it’s not stopping the NFL from “business as usual.” According to a league spokesman for the NFL, ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reports that the regular season schedule will be released on May 9th. Consequently, the regular season opener will kickoff on September 10th, with the Super Bowl set to air on February 7th,

Previous reports had indicated that the NFL had backup plans for the schedule release, including the possibility of the season not opening until mid-October and the Super Bowl being pushed back as late as February 28th. The NFL also intends to proceed with fans attending games and remaining in the stands.

 

NFL Regular Season Betting

With no plans for the NFL to postpone, move back, or cancel their regular season, legal online sportsbooks continue to take plenty of action on football bets. NFL team win totals and futures odds for Super Bowl LV remain the most bet on outcomes for the 2020 season.

For those in the Colorado area where sports betting just recently became legal, sites like DraftKings Sportsbook are offering adjusted odds on local teams, including the Denver Broncos’ win total for the 2020 season.
