2019-20 Season Preview

2019-20 Season Preview

Welcome to another season of thrilling National Football League betting. The 100th Anniversary Year is off and running as the Denver Broncos subs defeated the Atlanta Falcons subs 14-10 in the NFL Hall of Fame game.

Next up is four weeks of preseason prior to the start of the 17 week regular season on September 5, 2019. Watch for NFL Free Picks each step of the way.

After that, three rounds of playoffs precede Super Bowl 54 that will play out on February 2, 2020, at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, USA.

2019 NFC Championship Contenders

Tied as chalk, the Los Angeles Rams and New Orleans Saints open the NFL 2019-20 season as favorites to win the NFC Championship. The 2019 NFC finalists have (5.00) odds at SportsInteraction. We do not see a repeat.

Chicago (8.50) Philadelphia (9.00) sit alone as second tier chalk. Our expert handicapping crew is a much higher on the Bears than they are on the Eagles.

Green Bay (11.00) Dallas (12.00) and Minnesota (13.00) round out the top seven NFC contenders. Those three teams have question marks so be careful.

Super Bowl LIV Futures Betting Odds

Super Bowl LIV futures odds at Betway have the NFC and AFC teams mentioned above as top favorites to claim the 2020 NFL Championship. For the most part, each squad’s NFL title odds are double their Conference winning prices.

Somewhat surprising, AFC teams (Patriots, Chiefs, Browns and Colts) own four of six top chalk slots. The Rams and Saints sit third and fourth as NFC reps.

Updated weekly, Canuck ‘Cappers should check out our Super Bowl 54 futures prices. Preseason odds have had New England as favorites since February.
