September 10th, 2020 NFL Football, Sports Betting

Naturally, Sunday Night means NBC’s national showcase game of the week. This Sunday we get a tale of two coaches, Mike McCarthy led the 2010 Packers to a Super Bowl championship. Green Bay was a perpetual contender under McCarthy. However, the roof caved in on his relationship with Aaron Rodgers. Dallas hired McCarthy last January. His arrival marks the gravitas of a real and much-needed head coach. Rams coach Sean McVay was the toast of 2018 Pro Football betting. Now he is coming off a season of humility. Los Angeles missed the 2019 playoffs.
