How to use Lookahead Lines
Advance NFL lookahead lines provide a sneak peak at the projected lines for the following week’s games. This advance information from top online sportsbooks like BetOnline provides lessons in understanding lines and projections before the current week’s games are played.
The tendencies for many bettors is to over-react to previous weeks’ scores and results. The lookahead lines provide a sense of stability from the linemaker, who is unbiased in setting the lines in advance without the information from the current week’s contests.
Bettors can also gain an edge or find value in the lines once the current week’s lines are released. They do this based on not only a potential over-reaction to the recent week’s results, but by using information they have on teams including power rankings. Making adjustments is part of the process, along with formulating an opinion on certain teams. This can be based on personnel, injuries, situations and stats that come to light as the season progresses.
As you become more astute in your evaluations, betting and handicapping, you'll be able to use your skills to project and time the market better and make more +EV bets ahead of market moves.
