Opening Line out on FAU vs UAB...

Today's College Football Odds & Points Spreads

Florida Atlantic +13
UAB -13

Sound about right?

We have a OLine with no carrer starts and a Defense ranked almost last in the NCAA.

UAB lost thier offense in Joe Webb (and I mean just that, he accounted for 70% of UAB's offense last year)

29 more days!

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

Wow, 2 TD's huh?  That doesn't sound right to me at all…I'll take FAU on that.

Lines have nothing to do with football games.  Lines have to do with how many people will bet on each side of the bet.  If equal numbers of people bet on each side, it does not matter what the line is.  It is all about stimulating betting.  If they suddenly change the line, it is not because one of the teams suddenly got more respect, it means they need the betting trends to change.  The losing bettors pay off the winning bettors, and vegas takes their cut from the winning bettors.  They cannot lose that way.  The myth that Vegas will take a bath on a bet is a joke.  They want an equal number of people to bet on each team, and it's that simple.

Sorry to rain on the parade.  :)  You can still have fun with it because you want to be on the right side of the bet.  It just won't be Vegas that is crying when you win, it will be some sucker on the losing side of the bet.

Yeah, if you have ever been you know that Vegas obviously doesn't lose.  I am suprised that the odds makers see us as a 13 point dog though.
