NFL Week 14 Opening Line and Analysis – Early Picks

December 7, 2020
Opening Lines week 14 NFL

Catching early lines can really be a benefit. The point spreads tighten up as the week goes on. Two points really can make all the difference in the long run.

Last week our early line analysis and picks went about .500. Let’s see if we can do better this week. There is one disadvantage to betting lines early. And that is not knowing the full injury report. But there is an equal chance a player from the opposing team will be injured (or covid) as well. So, this too is a gamble.
