It is hard to believe that NFL game will be performed in China. But this is going to happen. It will be for the first time when the U. S. sports league will be played in the China. The game might not get much attention from the people. More importantly, the players will not be that comfortable to play a regular season in the China. As the result, you might not expect much from the NFL betting lines.
Now the teams are preparing for the game. They are focusing more on the work instead of discussing the playing environment. They are planning how they will come back from the China after the game and will prepare themselves for the next trip that might be more challenging. It will be difficult to play a more competitive game after coming back from China. Mark Waller, the vice president of the NFL, told in an interview, their focus is not more on the game in China.
Many speculations are coming up for this much-awaited game. As it will be arranged for the first time, the excitement will be natural. If you believe the media reports, then you can expect Los Angeles Ram will open the League in 2018 season in Beijing. According to the Sports Business Journal report, the San Francisco might be the opponent. There is no official confirmation of these reports either from the both sides or from the NLF itself. You might need to wait a little longer to get the official confirmation.
The NFL is still silent on this subject. If something has come from this site that is Waller’s comment only. You will have to trust it until no other report has come from the NFL.
The game will be challenging because of the distance between the U. S. A. and the China. The players will have to spend more than twelve hours in flight to travel from the Los Angeles and San Francisco. The last thing can be done to expect two teams in China. They will play the game, will meet the travel requirements. But you might not expect a good performance from both the teams as they are not familiar with the China conditions. Besides, they need to perform in the other games of that season.
One thing can be done to make some adjustments. They can offer some extra time to the two teams to return and prepare for the next game. That will also be challenging. The teams will have to leave the USA for the China and that might impact the departure date.
Whatever the implications might be, but it is decided that one game will be played in China. They just need to make it easy for the players so that they can perform well in the games and come back safely and positively to participate in the remaining games. As it will be arranged as an early game in the season, it might not influence the end result.
The game will not be easy for anyone. They will have to go the China, will have to play the game and will come back for the rest season. That will be hectic.
