The NFL season is set to kick off and for many it’s not a minute too soon. Here are some of the reasons sports betting fans are cheering the return of gridiron action.


A Glorious Distraction

You cannot talk about sport in 2020 without mentioning the C word. There’s no getting around it, coronavirus has had a big impact on everyone’s lives. For many, the NFL is a glorious distraction.

Whether you are a sports bettor or just a fan of your childhood team it will be great to simply sit back, relax and watch a game on a Sunday. Or Monday. Or Thursday.

Big Offseason Moves

There have been some interesting player trades in the offseason. Some standout players such as Jamal Adams, Stefon Diggs, DeForest Buckner, Deandre Hopkins and Calais Campbell have been on the move. Not to mention the big one. All-time great quarterback Tom Brady has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after 20 years with the New England Patriots.

These moves will shake up the NFL landscape for the better. Kansas City and Baltimore still look like being the teams to beat but the personnel shake-ups make the league more unpredictable.

Exciting Rookies

Joe Burrow is looking like a legit number one pick. He has the potential to turn one of the worst franchises around. The Cincinnati Bengals are in a tough division but after some years of rebuilding the Bengals can become a powerhouse team.

Another potential franchise-changing rookie is Chase Young. He is considered to have the same potential as Aaron Donald. The impact he will make on a struggling Washington team can help them compete in a weak NFC East.

Coaching Changes

Some teams have struggled a long time to find the right coach. The Dallas Cowboys have finally made a change and hired Mike McCarthy to help a talented team fulfill its potential. Some other notable coaching hires are Matt Rhule to the Carolina Panthers, Kevin Stefanski to the Cleveland Browns, Joe Judge to the New York Giants and Ron Rivera to Washington.
