I have a friend going home to British Columbia for the holidays. I'm sending her back with some money on Michigan to cover, especially at 1.5. That line seems way too low.

Each place is going to open at different places, but I'm surprised to find a 4.5 point spread between two books. Curious where it'll settle


"The Wynn also posted opening pointspreads on each of the four other BCS bowls, with the Sugar Bowl matchup between Michigan and Virginia Tech garnering the most early buzz. The Hokies opened as 3-point favorites over the Wolverines, but Michigan was the early favorite offshore. The Wolverines were favored by 1.5 at BetCris.com."

Looking at the videos that DG posted on Twitter, I feel good about our chances. I'd definitely cap us as a few point favorite. Minimum. That's not even factoring that we played a harder schedule in a harder conference.

I am visiting Las Vegas next weekend.  I will find the best point-spread I can, but I will bet heavily on Michigan if I find Michigan at -3 or less against VT.  If I find VT the favorite, I will bet the damn farm!!!

Apparently, Vegas is not sold on the idea of a Michigan win in  this one. This seems way too low. I feel less irritation at the -3 coming from Wynn (I think that's where I saw that), but still...low
