    Week 1 Betting Lines

    Anyone see any lines that look really good? This year I'm going to try and pick 4 games each week and wager from 1 to 3 units on each. Here is what I have so far:

    Michigan State (-7) over Boise State - 2 units
    Clemson (-3) over Auburn - 1 unit
    ISU (+1.5) over Tulsa - 3 units

    Looking for a 4th game. Or others I should be looking at?

    I can't ever get myself to bet on my own team. Too much personal bias in there.

    Re: Week 1 Betting Lines

    Michigan +13.5.........not a B1G, but Alabama lost a lot of players and i think Michigan might be the best team in that other conference. I think they will keep it within 7-10 points and could pull a shocker.

    Not much of a bettor, but I am a Mike Leach fan. He's getting 12 pts at BYU.

    I would also bet Ohio St. pounds Miami Oh by more than the 24 they're giving.

    Re: Week 1 Betting Lines

    I love, love, love Vanderbilt +7 tonight.

    At Vandy, lot of guys back off a decent team. SC not as much back.

    I loved LA Tech +7 against A and M which was supposed to be played in Shreveport but unfortunately got cancelled. Actually thought LT could win the game.

    Big money coming on Vandy...something like 80% of bettors are taking SC but the line moved from -7 to -6.5 meaning some BIG money going with Vandy.

    Yeah I only bet on ISU once(2006 KU game) and that is because I thought the line was really ridiculous. I didn't wager too much so I wasn't too mad when KU covered the spread.

    Re: Week 1 Betting Lines

    Does anyone ever look at the huge spread games like:

    LSU (-43) vs North Texas
    USC (-42) vs Hawaii
    Oklahoma (-30 1/2) vs UTEP
    Texas (-31 1/2) vs Wyoming

    I do. If I think the dog can put up 14-20 points, I may take a look. It's much easier to beat a team 49-3 to cover a 40+ point spread than to win 66-20. Of those games, I'd take Hawaii to cover over the others.

    SC is running it down the throat of Vandy.

    I agree. Either way too. Sometimes you don't give your team enough credit and sometimes you give them too much credit.
