get good lines before they move.  some people wait if they think the line will move in their favor.

Take advantage of line movements.

Sometimes you can get a sweet line early, I figured out thats why my LOCAL opens up late because most of the time its in his favor. He starts taking action around 3/4ish, the sweet lines are gone by then.

Other than line movement, I live in California, where most of the night's games start before I'm off work for the day. Some days the only option I have is to bet them early; otherwise, I can't guarantee that I'll have time to do it later in the day.

i bet Super Bowl 2 weeks ahead right after Conferenece Championship games ended. It will drop the likelihood of over thinking on the games.

I played the over last night (bout 1:00 am actually) in the Detroit/Spurs gm today. Thought it was too low at 187....it's at 188.5 now. Probably reach 189 by tip. I'll take the free pts (imo) for my wager. Confidence in yourself will lead you to make plays regardless of what "others" are playing. GL tonight

Because I have to work later hours sometimes so I have to place it before

Depending what side of the line you are on, news like this can favor early betting.

a better question is, why are folks over-eager to wager at any point before tipoff?

Well it can be a SMART thing or a STUPID thing.....it just depends on what occurs throughout the day.....injuries, etc.

Your question is indicative of your user tag on this site.  Get real bro.

For example, I rolled the dice (As I am sure many others did) thinking that D Rose wouldn't play and took the Heat Money Line early....Now look at where it's at.
