Dolphins at Pats -5.5 

This will be the Patriots SB. So much to prove by both coach and players with Brady gone, and the NFL was kind enough to give us the Dolphins as the patsy in this one—the very team that humiliated the Pats in the last game of the season and dashed their hopes of reaching another SB. This line should be -10. BB will pull out all the stops for this one, even if it’s only the first game.

tough bet as these games seem to always be very close and they've split the season series every year but 1 since 2013......I also see the Pats schedule as arguably the toughest in the NFL so there is always going to be the argument that Bill could tank for Trevor or lose for Lawrence.  He's always the smartest guy in the room and could already be looking ahead to 2021.    GL on your bet

that was the only other game I thought about. I think Rams win straight  up. They may not have the horses they used to but they were humiliated in Dallas last year and Cowboys have a new, unproven coach. The best teaser on the board might be 49ers and Pats. I think Niners come out strong in the opener. They’ve heard all the talk of a hangover and they’ll be out to prove the critics wrong. But who knows when or if these games will be played.

Mike McCarthy unproven? Dallas killed the draft.

Can't argue the Pats bet. Bill with a whole off season to game plan a revenge game is usually a good bet. He smoked Pitt last year. But without Brady we are looking at a different can of worms for the Pats this year. In the Belichick era, Bledsoe and Brady have been gold. Stidham is an unknown as of now

If killing a draft moved this line from pick-em to -2.5... I'll buy the +3 every single time...  Kids in first taste of NFL game speed.. umm sign me up

McCarthy is a 'nice' coach... not a difference maker...

That is my feeling.

Less than 1% of the population has contracted COVID-19 which means that 99% of the country remains at risk.

We are just in the infancy of this catastrophe.  A vaccine is the only thing that will stop it.

How about 99.9% of the population is unaffected by the virus? Right now this is a psychological and economic catastrophe and nothing more.

In three months we'll be back to normal...

Some will insist on hiding under their beds for a while but the people that wish to live - WILL... 55% of deaths are from 3 states, 25% in nursing homes. 'Guess they have a problem. I don't live in any of them, may we have our society back please? The problem is under control. Glad I live in the state I live in.

Seriously, a vaccine? How about be careful where you go, stay away from people, wash your hands more - a lot more... Wear a mask if you have to feel better. 

Pats are a good bet opening day.

SB feel like it was 2 years ago.

There are nearly 80,000 dead just in the United States alone.  Someone has to have little regard for human life to say, "The problem is under control."

As controls are eased, the death toll willl climb and it will accelerate.  I would expect even more deaths during Biden's Presidency because COVID-19 will have infected so much more of the country by then.

We need a vaccine.

I predict that if the 2020 NFL season begins as expected, it will not conclude as planned.

Fact: 2.8M people die in US every year, that's 7,700 daily... Start a scoreboard on deaths and the number just appears and we're all supposed to shiver and believe the number.

Majority are elderly and people with conditions. If we're so concerned why don't we have a counter that gets us to the 2.8M every year?

Make it daily news, "Today's the 37th day of the year and the nation has lost 283,827 people this year, an improvement over last year it was 285,994 at this time last year."

Good luck with the Biden presidency. He should play Leslie Nielsen's role in The Naked Gun movies, he's a natural.

I like the phins catching the points personally. But gl if you choose to play it. I'm going on record right now stating we most certainly will see the NFL starting on time. Now whether or not there will be fans in the stands is another question. Let's face it covid is here to stay. A vaccine is a long way away if at all. We're gonna have to deal with it like a regular bad flu season but life has to go on. 99.5 percent of people will be unaffected by it anyway. It sucks that the elderly are the most at risk but that's always the case. I've lost 2 grandparents to the regular flu it turned into pneumonia and that was it. It's the circle of life. The world has to start up again. 25,000 people die every day in the world from starvation mostly children who haven't even had a chance to start their lives and you dont hear one word about it on any newscast or in any newspapers. The negative media porn about covid is absolutely ridiculous you would think that there's nothing else going on in the world. Nothing but shock and hysteria.

Let's say the games are played as scheduled but without the fans. The home field advantage, typically 3 points, is basically gone. Other than one team having to travel, without the fans we are reduced to it being a neutral field. How will the oddsmakers adjust the lines? The game changes as we know it. Should be interesting nonetheless.

Sad stat about 25,000 people a day die of starvation...for sure..BUT I live in  the USA where LESS then 7000 die A YEAR FROM STARVATION..  Unless you live in Chad or Yemen ( where most of that number occurs)..  it has meaning to me..  In ONE week in the USA Corona kills more people then all year by starvation.. As for  the absurd notion of comparing it to regular flu which is downright  uneducated in its premise.. Corona kills at a rate of TWENTY times more then a high flu season death rate..  TWENTY TIMES...  And these numbers are with a shut down of the country.. With  out the shut down who knows what that number would  be.. and we are nowhere near the end ...  Regular flue lie not much worse..

Art, yes, without the shutdown the exponential factor could have been off the charts. 86,000 now, that number could easily have been 2-3 times higher, maybe more. The ability for it to spread so quickly and easily, and kill, is what separates it from other illnesses/tragedies in life at this time.

You do realize that starvation has been around a lot longer than covid right? 7,000 a year for the past couple decades dwarfs covid numbers. How about smoking 480,000 a year in the states die. Now I know its apples and oranges because starvation and smoking aren't contagious. My real problem is with the media and their one way narrative. If you want to start counters on newscasts with daily death numbers how about we start counting all these other numbers. It seems a lot of people's fears are dictated by the media these days and they have a job to start reporting accurately about everything that's happening on this hell on earth that we all call home. But I guess as long as its happening half way around the world and not in your own backyard it doesnt matter. And mark my words when it's all said and done and covid goes the same way as mers and H1N1 ( The same type of coronavirus as covid) and slowly starts infecting less and less people the good old regular flu will continue to kill people in larger quantities and more importantly for a lot longer period. In my eyes making much more potent and deadly simply because of its longevity ( and that's with a vaccine)

Exactly. Start a score board on that..lets take a look at the FLU death #'s etc..and lets not hear Covid-19 is worse..its the same in prevalence  and death rate.. Lets talk recovery rate for Covid is 99%. Most are unaffected / 70 and over with pre-existing conditions are at risk ie nursing homes..The death #'s  we have flashed in front of our face everyday on the news  every state every county are exaggerated . I have relatives ( Dr/NP  on the front lines.) Someone set dog-straight..less that 1% is the death rate ..not 1% contracted .99% is the recovery rate..not 99% at risk. Please stop. Games will be here and be there in January
