Here comes the Gus Bus.

Welp, there’s a lot to like in this paragraph.

Auburn opened as a 13 1/2-point underdog for the latest installment of The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry against No. 5 Georgia, according to VegasInsider.com. The Tigers, who were favored in each of their first nine games this season, travel to Sanford Stadium on Saturday…

Quantity and quality.  I’m impressed.

Of course, that can only mean one thing.  Georgia is about to get Auburn’s best shot.

Vegas still believes.

Georgia, believe it or not, sits fifth in Phil Steele’s College Football Bettor Ranks.

Eh, what do they know?

Vegas works in mysterious ways.

Not sure which line makes me more nervous, Georgia getting giving 8.5 on the road against LSU (although as the article points out, that’s actually down from the preseason line), or Alabama favored by 29.5 at home against Missouri.

Thoughts on those, or any of the other lines?  Personally, I kind of wonder if Jeremy Pruitt has a shot of dragging Auburn down to the Vols’ level.

The anchor has definitely been down.

This is probably not the kind of momentum you want to be riding if you’re Vandy getting ready to face Georgia.

Got ’em right where they want ’em.

You don’t have to tell a Georgia fan that the Dawgs always get Vandy’s best shot when the ‘Dores are big underdogs.

Embrace the sports book.

Give ESPN credit.  As this “Week 2 college football betting nuggets” piece demonstrates, Mickey’s all over the brave new world of betting.

Note the story from Columbia:

Georgia Bulldogs (-10, 56.5) at South Carolina Gamecocks — 3:30 p.m. ET

  • South Carolina went 6-1 ATS with four outright wins as an underdog last season.
  • The under is 11-4 in South Carolina’s 15 games against teams with a winning record under Will Muschamp.

Boom led something of a charmed life last year.  We’ll see if that narrative holds up today.

Feel free to use this as a general game day thread for today’s CFB action.
