2020 NFL Week 1 Predictions



Tom Brady faces Drew Brees. That's our game of the week in week 1 with Tampa Bay heading to New Orleans.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: September 9, 2020.



Houston Texans 0-0-0
Versus
Kansas City Chiefs 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


We're back for the 2020 NFL Season. You can follow our weekly predictions crew. Jesse Lucas won the first year in 2014-2015. Jason Bantle won the second year in 2015-2016 before winning again last year while leading every week of the season without any lead changes. This gives Jason 2 league titles after winning in 2019. I won the third year in 2016-2017. Oren Shiri won the fourth year in 2017-2018. Tanya Holmes won two years ago. Send me your predictions on Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn to be eligible for prizes should you have a perfect week.



Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Deshaun Watson should have success picking apart Kansas City's cornerbacks even without DeAndre Hopkins. Watson has weapons like Brandin Cooks, Randall Cobb, Will Fuller, and Kenny Stills. Even with Kansas City having three returning starters at cornerback, Watson has four weapons who pose an unfair advantage over Kansas City's receivers.


Houston's offensive line has Laremy Tunsil at left tackle, Max Scharping at left guard, Nick Martin at center, Zach Fulton at right guard, and Tytus Howard at right tackle. This offensive line will give Deshaun Watson time in the pocket to make the right decisions.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Patrick Mahomes has Eric Fisher at left tackle and Mitchell Schwartz at right tackle. Mahomes should have a clean pocket as well. Houston doesn't have a corner that can lock down Tyreek Hill or Sammy Watkins. Demarcus Robinson and MeCole Hardman provide quality depth options at wide receiver.


Tight end Travis Kelce went off in the Playoff victory over Houston when the Texans had Justin Reid and Tashaun Gipson at safety. With Gibson on Chicago, this may be an even easier matchup for Kelce.


Kansas City has a good defensive line with Frank Clark at 4-3 right end, Tanoh Kpassagnon at 4-3 left end, Chris Jones at 4-3 defensive tackle, and Derrick Nnadi at 4-3 defensive tackle. Kansas City's defensive line versus Houston's offensive line will be the chess matchup to watch in the trenches as both teams are fairly even this time around after the Chiefs had the edge with Suggs VS Chris Clark in the playoffs.


Andy Reid is a more disciplined coach than Bill O'Brien. Kansas City has their entire coaching staff from their Super Bowl 54 team back which should scare the Houston Texans.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 9 point favorite. The minimum bet is $340 dollars, the maximum bet is $440 dollars with the average gambler betting around $390 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 54.5. Right now 55% of the betting action is on Kansas City at -9. I like Kansas City to win and Houston to cover with the under.


Final Score Chiefs 30 Texans 24 OT

Philadelphia Eagles 0-0-0
Versus
Washington Football Team 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia airs on Talkshoe and Anchor now. We have a weekly show on Anchor that airs weekdays as well as our usual weekend show on Talkshoe. The Draft Utopia podcast just exceeded 222,300 listeners on Talkshoe while our podcast on Anchor is monetized. My first deposit from Anchor also arrives this week after starting my podcast over there in June.




Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Carson Wentz will be able to pick apart this secondary without Sean Davis at safety. Getting the ball to tight ends like Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert will be critical with both Alshon Jeffrey and Jalen Reagor injured.


Why the Washington Football Team Will Win: Washington's front 7 is the strength of their defense. This unit can do enough to stop Miles Sanders and limit the running game. Both teams have strong defensive lines and suspect pass defenses. I'd give Washington the edge at linebacker. Philadelphia does not have Andre Dillard at left tackle or Brandon Brooks at right guard due to injuries. Jason Peters was going to play right guard, but will move over to left tackle where he played last season.


In order for Washington to pull the upset second year quarterback Dwayne Haskins has to outplay Carson Wentz. The other thing that needs to happen is rookie running back Antonio Gibson has to step up in this game. J.D. McKissic is starting over Antonio Gibson which is why I'm on the fence. This honestly feels like the toughest game to call since both teams have so many holes on paper.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 6 point favorite. The minimum bet is $230 dollars, the maximum bet is $290 dollars with the average gambler betting around $260 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43. Right now 55% of the betting action is on Philadelphia at -6. I am taking the Washington Football Team to pull the upset and the over.

Miami Dolphins 0-0-0

New England Patriots 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


@CockyBelichick is my favorite Twitter user of all time. His twitter feed is that epic. He always inserts the #kisstherings hashtag and it is badass. I'm going to post his 5 best tweets on our site every week like David Letterman does with his top 10 jokes until the owner of this twitter feed requests I take them down because his tweets are that epic. Recently, @CockyBelichick, changed his username to @BelichickMethod. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets from the 2020 Offseason.



This feels like a reach. You'll have to scroll down all the way to the end of this page to find out how Drew Lock does against the clown. There's also a post on the Titans Instagram handle that says Happy Happy Joy Joy! Ren and Stimpy needs to sue the Tennessee Titans for copyright infringement.




Off the record. I hope all of these things happen.




I got some Super Bowl hats I could give away, but you already earned those. Maybe the NFL will award you to a spa with Rob Kraft. After all, the judges ruled that Kraft was exempt of all charges.




This is actually a legit question. I don't see Edelman in this tweet and I'm kind of pissed about that to be honest.




Apparently, I deserve to be smacked for comparing Harry to a young Randy Moss. Harry needs a big year 2 because Moss had an instant impact with Minnesota. New England needs Harry to play like Moss without Brady if they want to run this division again.



Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami is starting Durham Smythe over Mike Gesicki. Outside of DeVante Parker, Gesicki was the only target that I was sold on for Miami. Ryan Fitzpatrick beat Tom Brady in week 17 a year ago. For that reason, Miami has a shot to pull the upset again with Fitzpatrick as the starter.


Why the New England Patriots Will Win: Cam Newton has weapons like Julian Edelman, N'Keal Harry, and tight end Devin Asiasi. Newton has prepared these guys all offseason. Center David Andrews is back at full health and got voted team captain. Even if New England's defense struggles without some star players thanks to opt outs, I feel New England is too talented to lose this game and expect the Patriots to find a way to win.


Prediction: New England enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $240 dollars, the maximum bet is $300 dollars with the average gambler betting around $270 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43. Right now 52% of the betting action is on New England at -6.5. I like New England to win and cover with the over.

Green Bay Packers 0-0-0
Versus
Minnesota Vikings 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I've been uploading film to our Youtube Channel for the 2020 NFL Draft. We're even incorporating that film into our mock drafts. If you do film cut ups, add me on Twitter @DraftUtopia and message me. I'm also posting full College Games On Bitchute. I already got the South Alabama VS Southern Miss, Arkansas State VS Memphis, and BYU VS Navy games for 2020 up on Bitchute. I'll probably post ACC games there this weekend with College Gameday returning to Wake Forest.


Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Aaron Rodgers swept Minnesota last year. That's the only reason, I can even consider picking Green Bay to win.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: The right side of Green Bay's offensive line is weak. You have your former starting left guard Lane Johnson at right guard. Billy Turner beat out Rick Wagner for the right tackle job and now Turner is injured. Yannick Ngakoue is going to face David Bahktiari, but with Danielle Hunter out who knows who wins the matchup between Green Bay's right tackle and Minnesota's backup 4-3 left end. Both of Minnesota's rookie cornerbacks Jeff Gladney and Cameron Dantzler have stood out in Training Camp. I love the Vikings in this matchup and believe Dalvin Cook can get 100 rushing yards to begin the season with Blake Martinez in New York.


Prediction: Minnesota enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $120 dollars, the maximum bet is $140 dollars with the average gambler betting around $130 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45.5. Right now 61% of the betting action is on Green Bay at +2.5. Take Minnesota to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Vikings 28 Packers 17

Indianapolis Colts 0-0-0
Versus
Jacksonville Jaguars 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia now has an E-Commerce Store on Teespring. Click on the word Teespring to be redirected to our shop to buy Draft Utopia merchandise.


Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Indianapolis has a lethal offensive line with Anthony Costanzo at left tackle, Quinton Nelson at left guard, Ryan Kelly at center, Mark Glowinski at right guard, and Braden Smith at right tackle. With Philip Rivers at quarterback, I see Rivers having a clean pocket and a field day in Jacksonville.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Jacksonville dropped a lot of talent. It's pretty evident that they are tanking for Trevor Lawrence the same way many people thought Miami would tank for Tua Tagovailoa.


Prediction: Indianapolis enters as a 8 point favorite. The minimum bet is $280 dollars, the maximum bet is $360 dollars with the average gambler betting around $320 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45. Right now 59% of the betting action is on Indianapolis at -8. Take Indianapolis to win and cover with the over.

Chicago Bears 0-0-0

Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted my first 2021 NFL Mock Draft and this one is two rounds. I may try to update this weekly during the NFL season. I will also start a five round 2020 NHL Mock Draft after I do my predictions.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: MitchelL Trubisky is starting over Nick Foles. I'm not sure who in their right mind would pick the Bears.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Matthew Stafford should carve this defense. He has lots of weapons back and left tackle Taylor Decker got extended. Decker versus Khalil Mack will be a fun matchup. Kenny Golladay, Marvin Jones Jr., and Danny Amendola should carve the Chicago Bears cornerbacks. Tight end T.J. Hockenson should have a strong game.


Prediction: Detroit enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $160 dollars with the average gambler betting around $130 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44. Right now 50% of the betting action is on Detroit at -3. Take Detroit to win and cover with the over.

Las Vegas Raiders 0-0-0
Versus
Carolina Panthers 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I may make a 2021 NFL Draft Game at some point in the future. I am doing a lot of re-coding with content as well as film cuts for our site and our Youtube channel.


Why the Las Vegas Raiders Will Win: Derek Carr has tons of weapons. Guys like Henry Ruggs III, Hunter Renfrow, and tight end Darren Waller should pick apart this defense. Without Luke Kuechly, who recently retired, Josh Jacobs may end up getting 100 rushing yards on the ground.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Teddy Bridgewater may end up playing well too. The Las Vegas Raiders drafted Damon Arnette, but I'm not sold on him. I think D.J. Moore has an advantage over Arnette. Rookie nose tackle Derrick Brown has to get by center Rodney Hudson if the Panthers want to limit what Josh Jacobs does on the ground.


Prediction: Las Vegas enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $160 dollars with the average gambler betting around $130 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 59% of the betting action is on Las Vegas at -3. Take Las Vegas to win and cover with the over.

Chris Ransom's Pick


You can go to Fanpicks and enter the Promo Code draftutopia to win $20 dollars. We also have a Draft Kings advertisement on our home page so you can go there to sign up for Fantasy Football as well.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: No way the New York Jets can win this game. Unless Sam Darnold outplays Josh Allen, there is no way the Jets can win.


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Buffalo has the best defense in the AFC East Division. Buffalo has Devin Singletary, Zack Moss, and T.J. Yeldon at running back. C.J. Mosley was the only good 3-4 middle linebacker for the New York Jets and he opted out. Buffalo wins this game on the ground.


Prediction: Buffalo enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $230 dollars, the maximum bet is $290 dollars with the average gambler betting around $260 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 39.5. Right now 56% of the betting action is on Buffalo at -6.5. Take Buffalo to win and cover with the over.

Cleveland Browns 0-0-0
Versus
Baltimore Ravens 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.


Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Baker Mayfield and Cleveland beat Lamar Jackson and Baltimore Stadium in week 4 last year when running back Nick Chubb went off. The tight end depth with Austin Hooper, rookie Harrison Bryant as the second stringer, and David Njoku as the third string tight end is what Cleveland has to rely on if they want to win since Batlimore now has good rookies at 3-4 middle linebacker something they lacked last season.


If Cleveland wants to pull the upset Baker must win the turnover battle against Lamar Jackson and these tight ends and running backs on Cleveland must step up with both Chubb and Kareem Hunt wearing down these rookies. Left tackle Jedrick Wills Jr. and right tackle Jack Conklin should give Mayfield the time he needs in the pocket. Myles Garrett must also win some one-on-ones against Baltimore Ravens left tackle Ronnie Stanley.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Baltimore has the cornerbacks to contain Cleveland's receivers and limit the total amount of damage these receivers do with guys like Jimmy Smith, Marcus Peters, Marlon Humphrey, and Tavon Young going up against Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins, and Donovan Peoples-Jones. Baltimore also has four receivers with Marques Brown, Miles Boykin, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche that match up well with Cleveland's four cornerbacks.


If Greedy Williams is out, Baltimore's receivers have a slight edge over these Browns cornerbacks. Tight end Mark Andrews will face Cleveland safeties Karl Joseph and Ronnie Harrison. The running back duo of Mark Ingram and J.K. Dobbins should wear down the Browns linebackers.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $250 dollars, the maximum bet is $300 dollars with the average gambler betting around $275 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 48.5. Right now 54% of the betting action is on Baltimore at -7.5. I like Baltimore to win and Cleveland to cover with the over.

Seattle Seahawks 0-0-0

Atlanta Falcons 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


BFFL league standings will be back next week. For now, Mitch is the three time champion winning Bantle Bowls III, IV, and V. Tune in during the coming weeks to find out who goes to Bantle Bowl VI.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Even though Atlanta has good defensive backs when healthy, Seattle has better weapons for quarterback Russell Wilson. Wilson has Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf, Philip Dorsett in the slot, Greg Olsen at tight end, Will Dissly as the backup tight end, and Luke Willson as the third string tight end. Sure Atlanta has A.J. Terrell and Isaiah Oliver as their top two cornerbacks along with Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen at safety and this is a strong secondary. The lack of depth on this secondary gives Russell Wilson an unfair advantage and Chris Carson can go off at running back too.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Matt Ryan will get wide receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley involved in this game early and often. Atlanta's offensive line which has left tackle Jake Matthews, left guard James Carpenter, center Alex Mack, right guard Chris Lindstrom, and right tackle Kaleb McGary should do enough to give Ryan a clean pocket allowing Ryan to make the necessary throws to keep this game close. Expect a shootout in Atlanta.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 2 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49. Right now 61% of the betting action is on Seattle at -2. Go with Seattle to win and cover with the over.

Versus
Cincinnati Bengals 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football. This is the third year Bill Clinton has posted his College Football Playoff.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Clemson Tigers

    Clemson defeated Alabama once again in the Championship game thanks to the man with a mullet Trevor Lawrence. Hillary is crazy about is hair Yahoo man. Dabo Sweeney has surpassed Nick Saban as the biggest pimp in College Football





  2. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama wants revenge on Clemson. Nick Saban is the second biggest pimp in College Football.





  3. Oklahoma

    Lincoln Riley has coached two Heisman winning quarterbacks. He may have a third consecutive quarterback in Jalen Hurts a former prostitute of Nick Saban. Coach Riley is keeping his pimp hand strong at the quarterback position.





  4. Florida

    Florida enters my top 4 for the Preseason. They have Kyle Trask back at quarterback and the Gators may have their best squad since those Legendary Spurrier Teams in the 90's when I was president.






Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: I'm still trying to figure out why the Chargers are favored. Mike Williams is out and while Cincinnati does not have Trae Waynes for the entire year, if the Bengals can stop Keenan Allen they can win this game. The Chargers also do not have a good left tackle and Tyrod Taylor is starting over Justin Herbert. If Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram get pressure on Burrow then maybe this defense can keep this game low scoring.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Joe Burrow should come out swinging with a strong rookie debut at quarterback after being named one of the team captains. Running back Joe Mixon may also go off in this game since Mixon has an advantage over any linebacker on the Chargers.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $150 dollars, the maximum bet is $190 dollars with the average gambler betting around $170 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43. Right now 51% of the betting action is on Cincinnati at +3. Go with Cincinnati to win and cover with the over.

Arizona Cardinals 0-0-0
Versus
San Francisco 49ers 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I'll begin designing 2020 NHL and 2020 NBA Draft Games. I'm aware that the NHL and NBA Drafts are next month in October.


Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Arizona has DeAndre Hopkins, Larry Fitzgerald, and Christian Kirk for quarterback Kyler Murray to throw to. Also Arizona is healthier than San Francisco so that may work in Arizona's favor.


Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: San Francisco has the NFL's best defense when fully healthy. This defense should be able to do enough to limit Arizona's offense which would allow Jimmy Garroppolo to manage this game effectively. Left tackle Trent Williams has looked amazing in practice. If he can play like the guy he was two years ago against Chandler Jones, then San Francisco should do just enough to win.


Prediction: San Francisco enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $260 dollars, the maximum bet is $320 dollars with the average gambler betting around $290 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 53% of the betting action is on Arizona at +7. I like San Francisco to win and Arizona to cover with the over.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0-0-0
Versus
New Orleans Saints 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Fantasy Hockey rankings will be coming to the site later this year following the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. I'll probably start working on this in late October after the 2020 NHL and 2020 NBA Drafts end.



Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Mike Evans is going to be a game time decision. That's one reason why I love New Orleans to win this game. The pass rusher tandem of Shaquille Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul can hold Brees to under 30 points. Especially if Devin White and Lavonte David at 3-4 middle linebacker can limit what Alvin Kamara does on the ground. Tom Brady needs to get tight ends like Rob Gronkowski, O.J. Howard, and Cameron Brate involved if Tampa Bay wants to pull the upset.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: Drew Brees should pick apart Tampa Bay's secondary. I love Michael Thomas in the one-on-one matchup against Carlton Davis who had 19 deflections from pass brekaups a year ago. With Terron Armstead at left tackle, Andrus Peat at left guard, Erik McCoy at center, Cesar Ruiz at right guard, and Ryan Ramczyk at right tackle this offensive line will give Brees a clean pocket.


Prediction: New Orleans enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $140 dollars, the maximum bet is $180 dollars with the average gambler betting around $160 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49. Right now 60% of the betting action is on Tampa Bay at +3.5. I like New Orleans to win and to cover with the under.

Dallas Cowboys 0-0-0
Versus
Los Angeles Rams 0-0-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys finally parted ways with fictional GM Bill Lumberg who went 1-2 in his career as GM in the playoffs. Hank Hill from King of the Hill takes over with Dale Gribble as the assistant GM and Director Of College Scouting working directly under Hank Hill.




Here is this weeks hot take from Hank Hill.

Hey Dak Prescott you need to kick Jared Goff's ass. You need to show the Rams why your ass should have been drafted ahead of Goff before we pay you.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: This game is going to be a shootout. Dak Prescott has Ezekiel Elliott at running back who he can hand the ball off to. Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb are a great receiving trio and whoever isn't being covered by Jalen Ramsey will be open. Just keep the ball away from Jalen Ramsey, get Elliott involved and manage this game effectively.


Dallas has five good cornerbacks in Anthony Brown, Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis, Trevon Diggs, and Reggie Robinson II. Dallas has a much improved front 7 that can stop the Rams three man back field with three running backs splitting carries.


Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: Jared Goff has weapons too. Guys like Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, and Josh Reynolds at wide receiver can make plays. Dallas is deeper at cornerback as stated earlier.


The Rams have three tight ends with Tyler Higbee, Gerald Everett, and Brycen Hopkins. Dallas released Ha Ha Clinton-Dix so if the Rams want to win they need to get their tight ends involved early and often. Jared Goff may be able to do enough to win this game if left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right tackle Bobby Evans hold their own against right end Everson Griffen and left end DeMarcus Lawrence.


Prediction: Dallas enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $150 dollars with the average gambler betting around $130 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51.5. Right now 51% of the betting action is on Los Angeles at +3. I like Los Angeles to win and to cover with the under.

Chris Ransom's Pick


I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, Andrew Filiponi, and newcommer Rich Walsh. Tonight the gang is in New York.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from New York. We also have a new anchor joining us up in the booth in Rich Walsh. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: Welcome to New York. Rich Walsh is KDKA's version of Andy Dalton. Big Ben Roethlisberger should destroy the Giants. This game will get so ugly that Odell Beckham Jr. will be feeding Golden Tate shit at halftime.

Filiponi: I'm not sure what was worse, you disrespecting Rich Walsh or making a bad poop joke.

Walsh: One fan thought I was New York Giants offensive coordinator and former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. Speaking of Cowboys they were the team that picked up Dalton.

Pompieni: That's a good point Rich Walsh. If the Giants have any hopes of winning with young offensive talent like quarterback Daniel Jones, running back Saquon Barkley, and tight end Evan Engram, then Jason Garrett will need to step up at offensive coordinator.

Madden: I brought Little Giants the movie on VHS up to the booth. I expect Pittsburgh to clobber this team now that DeAndre Baker got cut.

Pompieni: Tonights game is brought to you by Dancing With the Stars. Dancing With The Stars won't air until 1:06 AM thanks to us calling this game on WTAE which is one of our rival stations.

Madden: No tonights game is brought to you by the CDC. They made sure no fans would be allowed in this game.

Filiponi: No local and state governments make rules on the fans in the stadium.

Walsh: Everyone is taking the Steelers Bob, so let's get to tonights sponsors.

Pompieni: We'll be back with kickoff after these messages from Dancing With The Stars and the CDC.



Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Without DeAndre Baker, Pittsburgh will clobber this defense even without David DeCastro at right guard due to an injury. Ben Roethlisberger has JuJu Smith-Schuster, Diontae Johnson, James Washington, and Chase Claypool to throw to. Expect Pittsburgh's offense to put on a clinic. Pass rushers T.J. Watt at 3-4 right outside linebacker and Bud Dupree at 3-4 left outside linebacker get rookie offensive tackles with left tackle Andrew Thomas and right tackle Matt Peart.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: Blake Martinez can stop James Conner. New York's rookie offensive tackles need to buy Daniel Jones time in order for the New York Giants to keep this game competitive.


Prediction: Pittsburgh enters as a 6 point favorite. The minimum bet is $180 dollars, the maximum bet is $240 dollars with the average gambler betting around $210 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 66% of the betting action is on Pittsburgh at -6. Go with Pittsburgh to win and cover with the over.

I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, Andrew Filiponi, and newcommer Rich Walsh. Tonight the gang is in Denver.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden, Andrew Filiponi, and Rich Walsh covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: Na Na Na. Na Na Na. Hey hey hey. Goodbye.

Walsh: Why are you singing that?

Madden: Pittsburgh doesn't have to face Von Miller in week 2. Also Bradley Chubb hasn't been cleared from injuries.

Filiponi: Why are you singing that song? You should never celebrate a players injury Madden.

Pompieni: That comment is completely inappropriate. Mark Madden you need to apologize to Denver's fans.

Madden: No, I got breaking news about Antonio Brown going to Denver.

Filiponi: Why would Denver sign Brown when they just drafted Jerry Jeudy and K.J. Hamler? Making up news just to get attention.

Walsh: Put this COVID-19 mask on Mark. It will help you relax.

Madden: Stop! I can't breathe Walsh.

Filiponi: I can't believe that mask put Mark Madden to sleep. What did you put in the mask.

Walsh: No comment.

Pompieni: That was refreshing now I can finally get through a game without any interuptions. Tonights game is brought to you buy the Denver Nuggets. It's still September in the NBA Playoffs and the Nuggets are still in it. We'll be back with kickoff after Nuggets advertisements from both the Denver Nuggets and McDonalds.



Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Tennessee does not have to worry about Von Miller or Bradley Chubb. Ryan Tannehill just needs to play smart by getting running back Derrick Henry and wide receiver A.J. Brown the ball.


Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Former Titan Jurrell Casey has to step up here. With no Von Miller, Denver will be dependant on Casey to step up if the Broncos have any hope of winning.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 41. Right now 55% of the betting action is on Tennessee at -2.5. I like Tennessee to win and to cover with the under.


Final Score Titans 27 Broncos 13
