We propose a platform to realize nodal topological superconductors in a superconducting monolayer of MoX2(X=S,Se,Te) using an in-plane magnetic field. The bulk nodal points appear where the spin splitting due to spin-orbit coupling vanishes near the ±K valleys of the Brillouin zone and are six or twelve per valley in total. In the nodal topological superconducting phase, the nodal points are connected by flat bands of zero-energy Andreev edge states. These flat bands, which are protected by chiral symmetry, are present for all lattice-termination boundaries except zigzag.
