NFL Week 3 Early Advanced ‘Look-Ahead’ Betting Lines: Pats 12 point favorites vs Texans

On Tuesday (when I was still without power in Florida) the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook published their NFL Regular Season Week 2 Advanced Betting Lines. Also known as Look-Ahead or Early Lines, these odds were released prior to any of the previous games – including Thursday night’s crap show between the Texans and Bengals. These Early Advanced Lines can and will differ substantially from odds posted by Vegas and offshore accounts by the time these games kick off next week. It will be interesting to see how the professional handicappers that set these lines react to Houston’s offensive ineptitude when the Week Three odds are initially set next week.

 

The one line that may raise eyebrows (and set pro football back eighty years) involves Cleveland and Indianapolis. Despite the fact that the baseball team in Cleveland has won more games in three weeks than their football team has since early 2011, the Browns are favored by three points – on the road – against the Colts.

 

The Patriots are the only double digit favorites, playing at home against the Texans. The only other game with a line of greater than seven points involves the other team in the TNF snoozefest. Green Bay is a nine point home favorite versus Cincinnati.

 

Week Three does not involve many particularly compelling matchups. The best of the lot is probably Sunday night’s Oakland (-4) at Washington. After that there are a couple of early games that may be worth watching: New Orleans at Carolina (-5½) and Atlanta (-3) at Detroit. To the surprise of nobody that follows the NFL, the Thursday night game will be another one worth avoiding.

Los Angeles Rams (-2½) at San Francisco 49ers
