The 2020 NFL season has been one of the most unique ever. With the global Covid-19 Pandemic gripping the sports world for much of 2020, the NFL has had to adopt some very strict guidelines and protocols in order to mitigate the risk of infection for both its players and their fans. This has made the 2020 NFL season like no other in history.
Games are played in front of silent, empty stadiums as opposed to roaring crowds. Team meetings and events have been shortened and compromised as an extra step of precaution, and teams are tested almost daily to help ensure the safety of the players.
All of these precautionary measures seem to be working as planned, but one thing many didn’t account for was the effect that these changes would have on the actual games, themselves.
One famous sports bettor and professional tipster, Jon price, the founder of Sports Information Traders, has been one of the world’s hottest handicappers on the forefront of the unique betting trends that have developed during this unique football season. Jon is no stranger to the limelight. He’s been published in numerous major publications such as Yahoo Finance, Forbes, and the Huffington Post, among many others. He’s also grabbed national headlines with a few million dollar wagers on big games, and he’s featured on nationally syndicated radio stations across the country during football season where he breaks down all of the weekly football betting action from both College and the NFL.
This year in particular, Jon has loaded up his clients on the totals of games, as opposed to wagering on the side of a play. More specifically, the OVERs in the total of games have made Jon and his clients a lot of money this year.
Before the season even began, Jon Price was on ESPN radio discussing the possible influences that this unique season could have on the games being played. He strongly believed that the lack of fans in the stadiums would greatly favor the road team and drastically increase the scoring for both sides. So far Jon has been right on the money as he’s off to a perfect 4-0 start on all of his 4 National radio picks this year on ESPN radio.
His latest segment came last week where he went on the radio and told everyone to hammer the OVER 55 points in the Cowboys-Seahawks game. He gave his pick out for free on national radio, and not only did the game go just as Jon said it would, but the OVER 55 points covered in the middle of the 3rd quarter, and Jon and his clients, as well as the listeners to his radio program, were counting their wager profits by the start of the 4th quarter.
While there have obviously been some exceptions to this trend, for the most part Jon and his team have made a killing this year on the OVERs in games. Jon went on his radio program recently and mentioned that Vegas is also onto the developing trend and has started to adjust their lines accordingly. But when you’re a sharp bettor like Jon Price is, you always try to stay one step ahead of Vegas and their oddsmakers. Jon expects for the advantageous wagering lines to continue throughout the season, for as long as the unique circumstances surrounding this 2020 NFL season continue.
