The (point) spread spreads.

I don’t think this constitutes an “easy win”, but it’s worth noting that the Las Vegas Hilton has moved the line on the Boise State-Georgia game back out to Georgia +3.

    I can never figure out this stuff. Increasing the spread means too much money is bet on the favorite and they want more bet on the underdog?

      They want the exact same amount o money bet on both teams. Thy way there is zero risk but the house wins the “juice” (10%). The only true risk is when people middle, which is when they bet on one team at one spread and then on the other after the spread moves. This creates a situation where the could won both bets, so the casino’s strategy if moving the spread backfires because the money wagered on both sides is a loss.

      Back to the beginning, the reason theymove the line is because bettors are loading up on one team, which creates a risk of a loss for the house. Thus they try to entice bettors to go the other way to even the bets back to 50/50. When people said the bookies cleaned house on a particular game they don’t really know what they are talking about.

    The change in spread is likely due to the ONBUG article yesterday. 🙂

    I know it is totally irrelevant to this year’s game, but does anyone remember the line when we played them in ’05? Just curious.

    The line moved the way it did simply because more people started betting on Boise, undoubtedly after reading/hearing about the “thin” O-line and RB corps at UGA. They did not, however, consider that the players in UGA’s “thin” areas are actually better than the comparable Boise players. They also apparently completely forgot about the improved UGA D.
