You move me.

Based on the current Golden Nugget lines posted here, Phil Steele’s prediction that Georgia may be favored in every game after its opener doesn’t look so far-fetched.  The trends clearly show that the lines on most of its games have moved pretty dramatically in Georgia’s favor since they opened.

Georgia is now a one-point underdog in its first two games and favored in every other game on the board, including (gasp!) against Florida.  The Dawgs are now a whopping nine-point favorite over Auburn.

    You know what, that damn optimist, he shows up every year this time, is starting to rear his ugly head.

    Gambling public likes UGA and hates Auburn and Florida. I feel the same way.

    I also note that folks appear to have been pushing a little money in Tennessee’s direction as well.

      Public hasn’t been moving the lines because they generally don’t bet till the week of…it’s the “sharps” in Vegas making a broad based value bet on our boys.

        Exactly right, not enough betting to move any lines at this point. Steele has enough credibility, the casinos moved them knowing some of the early games may have been off.

    I have the same problem with early predictions like this as I have with preseason polls. There really is no basis for either. That said, I am taking out a second mortgage and betting it all on UGA to beat Boise ( there is legalized gambling in Dawgtown at the Dawgbone Casino).
