Unless you find a line that you absolutely love early on...Opinions and information change all week long.

I rarely finalize a pick until either the night before or within an hour or two before gametime. Betting serious cash on a game days before when things like injuries/illnesses happen is foolish in my opinion. Again, except when perceived value in the line is there.

Anyway, to each their own..... "bet with your head, not over it"

Good example was everyone on the Broncos mid week and how did that turn out?

Agreed

I normally would wait.  That's the best way

Waiting doesnt help unless there is an injury, and the books usually know before the public. If you like SF you should have played super early, and if you like Atl, you might as well take the 4.5 because even if it goes to 5 or 5.5, they are dead numbers.....

This game has hit +6 at some books.

I hope that answers the OP's question.

This is absolutely right. Well, except for a small disagreement with 5 being a dead number. With two point conversions, and teams missing them when down by 5 or up by 5, it does come up more than it used to, so it's not totally dead.

Totally disagree.  I'd rather get a better line (once you see where the money is going) and risk the chances of an injury.

I bet Niners EARLY -3

 

 

 

They closed -4.5

 

 

 

If I DIDN"T bet the early line....I Would've lost today.

 

Maybe NOW you know

Maybe you should read more than just the title

If that in fact is possible for you
