College Football’s Biggest Games Get Early Point Spreads

By Adam Kramer   Jun. 10, 2011

The Golden Nugget released college football lines for the top games for the 2011 season meaning you can now wager actual dollars on actual games months in advance. As ridiculous as this may seem, this tradition has caught on of late and created quite a buzz in Vegas and online. Plus, the thought of football gets us all giddy and it’s never too early to examine what odds makers think of these matchups heading into the season.

We’ll have plenty of thoughts on all these games in the future, but for now just grab a cold one and handicap these games for yourself. Also, these lines have and will continue to move throughout the weekend, so look for early action to cause big odds shakeups.

And here they are.

      Not a single Ohio State game?

    3. Bamagirl

      Someone obviously hates Bama and is also (obviously) a moron if they think Bama will lose every single game. It’s Sept 28, 2011 and they’ve been wrong on every pick so far.

    4. 10/7/11

      Bamagirl, those numbers next to Bama indicate the points Bama is giving away to the other team, meaning that they are favored. It would be +7 if we were getting 7 points. The analysis obviously thinks very highly of Bama, but you can see what values for certain teams have changed. We will not be 9 point favorites against LSU (more like 3-6 pt. favs at home), and we will be more than 7 point favorites against a weaker than expected Miss St. team on the road.
