Steelers vs Giants

Steelers vs Giants Week 1 picks, odds: Point spread, total, player props and betting trends for 2020 opener

Welcome to the 2020 regular season and welcome to Monday Night Football. The New York Giants will be the first team to host the primetime spectacle this year when they welcome in the Pittsburgh Steelers to MetLife Stadium. Both these historic franchises are looking to end playoff droughts this season after the Steelers have failed to reach the postseason the past two years, while the Giants last made it past December back in 2016.

For the Steelers, their playoff hopes rest on the return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who missed essentially all of last season due to an elbow injury. In his absence, Pittsburgh was able to go 8-8 and was sniffing around a playoff berth, but ultimately wasn’t able to get over the hump. With Big Ben back under center, however, that breathes new life into a potentially potent offense and pairs it with a defense that was a top-five unit throughout 2019. As for the Giants, they hired former Patriots special teams coordinator Joe Judge to be their new head coach and are now looking to see how quarterback Daniel Jones progresses as he enters his second season in the league and is the clear-cut starter.

In this space, we’ll be taking a deep dive into all the betting angles for this game and help you focus in on some of the juicer wagers that can be found here. All odds via William Hill Sportsbook.

Steelers (-6) at Giants

The line originally opened up at Steelers -3 in early May and held steady much of the offseason at Steelers -3.5 despite positive reports continuing to come out around quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. It ballooned up to Steelers -6 once the calendar turned to September but has since jockeyed around a bit as the game draws closer. In the later afternoon on Sunday, the line was cut in half to Steelers -3, but has since jumped back up to Steelers -6 as of Monday morning.

The pick: Steelers -6. Pittsburgh’s offense is just too potent and their defense is elite, which is a recipe to win by double digits. New York has been a home underdog 11 times over the last two seasons and is 1-10 ATS, including 0-5 ATS last season. Road favorites also went 6-1 ATS on Monday Night Football last season, which is another reason to lean heavily on Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense to have a strong game in his return to the field.

Over/Under 45 points

This number has seen a noticeable drop since it opened at 48 back in May. It hung at that number throughout the summer months, but there has been considerable movement on game week. Wednesday was the initial drop — rolling down from 48 to 47 — and it ahs continued to trickle down to where we stand on Monday morning at 45.

The pick: Over 45. The Under went 7-1 in Pittsburgh’s road games last season, but it’s really hard to use that as a true barometer due to Big Ben’s injury. This offense will be much improved now that Mason Rudolph and Devlin Hodges aren’t under center, so I don’t mind taking the Over here, especially if I think that Daniel Jones will be able to put up points with his full complement of weapons now healthy.

First half: Steelers -3, O/U 22.5

The pick: Giants +3. As much as I love the Steelers this season, it wouldn’t shock me if they were a bit clunky out of the gate. Roethlisberger missed the bulk of last season and has had zero preseason games to really shake off some rust. I like them to win this game and blow it open in the second half thanks to New York’s depleted secondary, but I also think the Giants offense is being slept on a bit. I’ll take the Giants and hope Big Ben is a bit sluggish to start.

Player props

Saquon Barkley anytime touchdown score (+100): Predicting touchdowns for skill position players isn’t the best way to wager, in my opinion, due to its erratic nature. That said, Barkley is clearly the best weapon in New York’s offense and they’ll use him heavily whenever they get into the red zone. He’s also a home run hitter that has the ability to break one off from anywhere on the field. He’s facing a very tough run defense but should be able to cross the end zone once.

Saquon Barkley rushing yards: Under 70.5 (+105). While I see Barkley scoring in this one, I do have some trepidation about whether or not he’ll be able to put up a ton of yards on the ground. I expect Pittsburgh to eventually blow this game wide open, and if that happens out of the gate, the Giants may be forced to scrap the run game.

James Conner receptions: Over 3.5 (-115). Big Ben returning is a huge factor for Conner’s overall production. The back averaged 4.2 receptions per game when Roethlisberger was fully healthy in 2018 and even averaged 3.4 catches a game last season with unstable quarterback play. He’s a key piece to their passing game.

Ben Roethlisberger passing yards: Over 285.5 (-110). I see Roethlisberger having a strong night through the air against a Giants secondary that doesn’t strike fear into any quarterback’s eyes. He make have to shake some rust off to start, but he has receiving weapons at every turn (backfield, tight end, receivers) and should have no problem eventually letting loose on Monday night.

JuJu Smith-Schuster receiving yards: Over 65.5 (-110). If you think that Roethlisberger is going to light it up through the air, you might as well hit the Over on his No. 1 receiver, who averaged 89.1 receiving yards per game with him in 2018.

Darius Slayton total receptions: Over 3.5 (+140). If Golden Tate (hamstring) is either ruled out or hobbled in this game, that opens up even more opportunity for Slatyon, who had a strong rapport with Daniel Jones during their rookie seasons. In 2019, Slayton went over that 3.5 catch mark six times and it wouldn’t shock me if he comes out of the gate strong in 2020. Taking the Over on his total receiving yards at 40.5 (-110) also intrigues me. He has the talent to get most of that on a single play.

Ben Roethlisberger longest passing completion: Over 37.5 (-105). He has burners all around him in this Pittsburgh offense and is facing a Giants secondary that is asking to be lit up. Could easily find anyone of his pass catchers for a bomb or it wouldn’t even be surprising to see a guy like James Connor take a swing pass the length of the field.

Cowboys vs Rams Preview

After a disappointing 8-8 campaign, the Cowboys are seeking a big bounce back season and have the talent to do it. The team added explosive wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with the No. 17 pick in the draft to a unit that already includes Pro Bowler running back Ezekiel Elliott, pass-catchers Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper, and quarterback Dak Prescott.

Dallas also saw a shift in leadership following the .500 finish, sending long-time head coach Jason Garrett packing. The matchup with the Rams will mark the debut of Mike McCarthy, who engineered eight double-digit win seasons and a Super Bowl in Green Bay previously. McCarthy is embracing the expectations that come with being the head coach for “America’s Team.”

“I embrace that,” McCarthy told The Athletic. “I think it’s a blessing to be able to line up and have an opportunity to go out and win, especially when you’re expected to win. … That is the only way you can go about the game of football. That is the only way I have every approached it. I have never lined up in any contest when I didn’t expect to win. There is a path to victory every single time you line up as a team.”

The Rams finished 9-7 a year ago in the tough NFC West, missing the playoffs after making the Super Bowl. LA has some questions heading into Week 1, starting at the running back position. Former Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley is now in Atlanta, and the Rams are still looking for who will emerge as the lead back. Veteran Malcolm Brown, second-year pro Darrell Henderson and rookie Cam Akers will attempt to fill the void.

“What we got now is kind of a three-headed monster back there,” Rams QB Jared Goff said.

The game will be the inaugural matchup at SoFi Stadium — the Rams new home confines.

“Jerry has told us all about the stadium,” McCarthy joked this week while speaking with reporters. “I know he’s excited for the Rams organization and what’s gone into this stadium. I think it’s just a little smaller than AT&T (Stadium). That’s a fact that I’m saying as I’m winking my eye, but we’re excited to be part of that, no question. It’s supposed to be an unbelievable venue.”

The Cowboys are a 2-point road favorite for the opener. The total for the matchup is set at 51.5 — the highest figure of the weekend.

Cowboys vs Rams Preview

After a disappointing 8-8 campaign, the Cowboys are seeking a big bounce back season and have the talent to do it. The team added explosive wide receiver CeeDee Lamb with the No. 17 pick in the draft to a unit that already includes Pro Bowler running back Ezekiel Elliott, pass-catchers Michael Gallup and Amari Cooper, and quarterback Dak Prescott.

Dallas also saw a shift in leadership following the .500 finish, sending long-time head coach Jason Garrett packing. The matchup with the Rams will mark the debut of Mike McCarthy, who engineered eight double-digit win seasons and a Super Bowl in Green Bay previously. McCarthy is embracing the expectations that come with being the head coach for “America’s Team.”

“I embrace that,” McCarthy told The Athletic. “I think it’s a blessing to be able to line up and have an opportunity to go out and win, especially when you’re expected to win. … That is the only way you can go about the game of football. That is the only way I have every approached it. I have never lined up in any contest when I didn’t expect to win. There is a path to victory every single time you line up as a team.”

The Rams finished 9-7 a year ago in the tough NFC West, missing the playoffs after making the Super Bowl. LA has some questions heading into Week 1, starting at the running back position. Former Offensive Player of the Year Todd Gurley is now in Atlanta, and the Rams are still looking for who will emerge as the lead back. Veteran Malcolm Brown, second-year pro Darrell Henderson and rookie Cam Akers will attempt to fill the void.

“What we got now is kind of a three-headed monster back there,” Rams QB Jared Goff said.

The game will be the inaugural matchup at SoFi Stadium — the Rams new home confines.

“Jerry has told us all about the stadium,” McCarthy joked this week while speaking with reporters. “I know he’s excited for the Rams organization and what’s gone into this stadium. I think it’s just a little smaller than AT&T (Stadium). That’s a fact that I’m saying as I’m winking my eye, but we’re excited to be part of that, no question. It’s supposed to be an unbelievable venue.”

The Cowboys are a 2-point road favorite for the opener. The total for the matchup is set at 51.5 — the highest figure of the weekend.

US Open Tennis Finals 2020 Live

US Open Tennis 2020: Women’s, Men’s Finals TV, Live-Stream Schedule It’s championship weekend at the 2020 U.S. Open, the tennis season’s second Grand Slam tournament, at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City.

The women’s final Saturday will feature a pair of two-time major champions. Fourth-seeded Naomi Osaka takes on unseeded Victoria Azarenka, who’s showcased a return to form over the past month.

Dominic Thiem and Alexander Zverev, two of the bracket’s top-five seeds, will each be seeking their first major title in the men’s final Sunday.

Men’s Final

When: Sunday, Sept. 13 at 4 p.m. ET

Watch: ESPN

Live Stream: WatchESPN

Osaka and Azarenka were scheduled to face off in the final of the Western & Southern Open two weeks ago in the final warm-up event before the U.S. Open. Osaka was forced to withdraw with a hamstring injury, handing the title to Azarenka, but that event proved a strong predictor for the U.S. Open.

Azarenka dominated their first head-to-head meeting in the 2016 Australian Open (6-1, 6-1) but Osaka bounced back to win the last two matchups in the 2018 Italian Open (6-0, 6-3) and the 2019 French Open (4-6, 7-5, 6-3).

The key question Saturday will likely be which version of Azarenka shows up.

She struggled mightily during the first set against Serena Williams in the semifinals, racking up 10 unforced errors and four double faults. She stormed back over the next two sets with 21 winners and just seven unforced errors to eliminate the 23-time Grand Slam singles champion.

If the 31-year-old Belarus native plays like she did in the middle set of that match (12 winners, one error), she’s definitely capable of pulling off the upset.

That said, Osaka has been terrific since the WTA Tour restarted amid the coronavirus pandemic with a 10-0 record (not counting the walkover loss to Azarenka). She was efficient in her semifinal win over Jennifer Brady with 35 winners and nine aces against 17 unforced errors.

The 2018 U.S. Open champion is the pick to add another trophy to her collection in a hard-fought final that goes the distance.

Zverev looked completely lost for the first two sets of his semifinal against Pablo Carreno Busta. Whether it was the nerves from playing in his first major semifinal, the craftiness of his Spanish opponent or a combination of factors, it appeared he was heading for a massively disappointing exit.

The 23-year-old German rising star came alive in the third set, though. He won 83 percent of the points on his first serve while racking up 11 winners and four aces to completely turn the match around before going on to win in five sets.

He won’t have nearly as much margin for error against Thiem, however, so it will be important for him to get off to a much better start Sunday.

Thiem, 27, is making the fourth Grand Slam final appearance of his career. He lost to Roland-Garros legend Rafael Nadal in the French Open each of the past two years and came up short against Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open championship match earlier this year.

The Austrian wasn’t terribly efficient in his straight-sets triumph over third-seeded Daniil Medvedev in the semifinals. He got just 59 percent of his first serves in and finished with more errors than winners (33-22) and more double faults than aces (3-2).

He overcame those struggles by winning 55 percent of the points on his second serve and taking care of business at the net (22 of 29 points won). The latter area is also a strength for Zverev, who converted 74 percent of his net approaches against Carreno Busta, which makes that a key stat to watch Sunday.

Thiem, who holds a 7-2 edge in their prior meetings, has more experience on the championship stage and faced a far more difficult road to the final, yet he still managed to only drop a single set in the process. He should find a way to finally claim his long-awaited first major title.

Cardinals vs 49ers Preview

The San Francisco 49ers (8-1) will look to get back on track after suffering their first loss of the season when they take on their NFC West foe, the Arizona Cardinals (3-6-1) for the second time in three weeks on Sunday.

The 49ers are coming off of a short week after losing to the Seattle Seahawks in an overtime thriller, 27-24, this past Monday night.

The highly-anticipated duel lived up to the hype and then some, with the game coming down to the final play in OT – a 42-yard game-winning field goal by the Seahawks’ Jason Myers as time expired.

The defenses were the stars of the show, forcing three turnovers apiece and each scoring a touchdown.

The 49ers were locked down by the Seahawks’ defense for the majority of the game. San Francisco’s running game was held to a season-low 87 yards on the ground, with an average of just 3.2 yards per carry.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 24 of 48 passes for 248 yards, one TD and one INT in the loss. San Francisco was down their top two receiving threats for most of the contest, as WR Emmanuel Sanders was forced to leave in the first quarter with injured ribs and TE George Kittle missed the game due to an injury.

Despite the offensive struggles, the 49ers had their opportunities to take the game on Monday night.

Chase McLaughlin, who was signed earlier in the week after the 49ers’ starting kicker Robbie Gould went down with a quadriceps injury, missed a would-be game-winning 47-yard field goal in overtime. McLaughlin had made three field goals in regulation, including a 47-yard bomb with one second left in the fourth quarter to send the game to OT.

Meanwhile, after righting the ship this season behind rookie QB Kyler Murray and first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury, the Cardinals have come crashing back to Earth, having lost their last three games.

Arizona gave up a 92-yard go-ahead touchdown drive late in the fourth quarter last week and fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road, 30-27.

Murray, who was drafted first overall by the Cardinals, had his NFL rookie record of consecutive passes thrown without an interception (211) snapped in the fourth quarter. It was his first INT since Sept. 29.

The 22-year-old Murray did throw for 324 yards and three touchdowns. All three TD passes were caught by WR Christian Kirk.

If the Cardinals are going to contend on the road against the first-place 49ers on Sunday, they are going to have to tighten things up on defense.

Arizona’s defense ranks 31st out of 32 teams in points allowed (281), having given up at least 21 points in all ten games this season.

Sunday’s game will be the second meeting of the two NFC West rivals in the last three weeks.

The 49ers edged by the Cardinals 28-25 on the road on Halloween night.

The Cardinals kept it close throughout but couldn’t overcome one of the best games of Garoppolo’s career, as the 49ers QB threw for 317 yards and four TDs.
