Equally as important, we saw closing line value (the line we bet in this article is better than the closing line with respect to the side we bet) on all our early bets except for the San Francisco 49ers, who ended up losing tight end George Kittle and didn't cover either the opening or closing lines.

Week 6 Best Early NFL Bets
Point (George Chahrouri): Justin Herbert is getting all the MVP love, and deservedly so, but the highest-graded quarterback this year is Tom Brady — and for good reason. The GOAT has 18 big-time throws (PFF’s highest-graded set of passes) and zero turnover-worthy plays, ranking second and first, respectively. More importantly, all the Bucs wide receivers are now healthy, as evidenced by Mike Evans and Antonio Brown both catching two touchdowns in Week 5.
The Eagles have only one player in the secondary with a top-35 grade at their position (Darius Slay), including a particularly weak interior that Brady will dice up. The Bucs also have the athletes on defense to keep Jalen Hurts from beating them with his legs (see: Devin White).
