NFL 2023 Week 2 Odds And Lookahead Lines

FairwayJay chips in NFL Week 2 odds and lookahead lines with betting insight and information you can bet on.

Each week during the NFL season, select leading online sportsbooks release the advance betting lines for the following week’s games. These lines offer a glimpse at the projected betting lines up to 10 days in advance of the games. This week we provide and evaluate the 2023 NFL Week 2 lookahead lines from BetOnline and the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas. 

I'll chip-in and update these advance odds and NFL lookahead lines, and also add some insight on the market moves and betting data supporting the teams. 

You can follow some of my weekly NFL updates at Forbes, including Week 1. I also provide my weekly NFL underdog picks and look to continue our winning ways in NFL Week 1 following a 6-year-record posting underdog picks of 162-117 ATS (58.1%) including a 70% season in 2021 of 28-12 ATS with 21 outright winners.

NFL look ahead oddsThese ‘NFL Lookahead Lines’ or advance lines can be useful in not only projecting ahead to next week’s games and lines, but also to keep you from over-reacting to one game or the upcoming games results. That includes on the Detroit Lions (+6.5 down to +3.5) road win 21-20 over the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs Thursday night. The market has already reacted to the Chiefs Week 2 game at Jacksonville with the lookahead line KC -3 and now down to -2.5 before the Jaguars even play their Week 1 game against the Indianapolis Colts. 

Comparing the lookahead lines before games are played on Sunday to the actual opening numbers on Sunday following each weeks games should help you identify potential line value. Yet understand there are high levels of variance in games and through a short season. 

How to use Lookahead Lines

We’ll be updating the NFL advance lines each week to allow you a sneak peak at the projected lines for the following week’s games. This advance information from top online sportsbooks 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.
