NFL 2023 Week 8These 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’s especially the case with game totals this week off a historically low-scoring Week 7 that saw games average just 36.7 points per game and over/unders went 2-13. Week 8 followed with 43.4 points per game – right at the season average of 43.15 PPG. Home underdogs barked loud in Week 8 going 5-1 SU and 6-0 ATS and just 4 of 9 favorites won and covered.
