Hi all. I'll have a diary later in the week, but its a boring Monday morning and I want to talk College Football right bleeping now.
I have a new post on the current bettting lines for Big 10 teams in Week 2 of the season. The post is light on Michigan as their game that week isnt on the betting board. Yet.
Over at the JCB, I am making my way chronologically through the Golden Nugget's Games Of The Year betting lines released earlier in the month. We're still looking at CFB Week 2.
The post focuses on the Iowa St-Iowa and Nebraska-UCLA games, which the Golden Nugget casino has already releases actuall betting lines on. The rest of the Big 10 will have to wait, but we do have possible spread projections. Lets talk all the action. Thoughts on these games, teams or anything related. Lets kill this Monday afternoon and get one day closer to kickoff together. We can do it
Iowa State +5 at Iowa (actual lines)
Nebraska -7.5 at UCLA (actual lines)
Those games are actual lines to bet on in Vegas. Who you got. The remaining Big 10 slate that day with projected lines. The Wolverines are kinda heavy chalk, yo!
Air Force +24 at Michigan
Wisconsin -14 at Oregon St
Vandy +1.5 at Northwestern
Penn St +2.5 at Virginia
Illinois pick 'em at Arizona St
IU -14 at Umass
New Hampshire +23 at Minny
UCF +16.5 at Ohio St
Mich St -23.5 at Central MICH
Purdue +11.5 at Notre Dame
If those projected lines are close to reality, I like UVA over Penn St--are we sure the Nits will even be in a bowl game this year? I am not. Losing this game will hurt.....and I'll take ASU, the home Pac-12 team in a coin flip against Illinois.
I like that Vandy/NW game a lot. Not to bet, but to watch. Vandy is really on the move. Loser probably wont be able to make a bowl game, however.
