That’s the over/under on Georgia’s 2016 win total, per the Golden Nugget’s sports book.
Check out Tennessee at 10. That’s the top win total in the conference.
If the lines are to be believed, the SEC East looks like it’ll be tight: Tennessee-Georgia is a pick ’em and the Dawgs are a one-point favorite against the Gators.
Some other interesting spreads:
Georgia is an early favorite in the opener.
Evidently the betting public isn’t as worried about the quarterback situation as we are.
Oh, yeah – looking good, Gus.
Vegas now has Chubb at 20-1 to win the Heisman Trophy this season. As Seth Emerson puts it, “That may not sound like much, but consider that a) there’s still no timetable for Chubb’s return, and b) there are only nine players with better odds for the Heisman.”
I keep saying the most amazing thing about Chubb is the level of certainty out there that he’ll be a significant contributor this season.
Bovada’s updated its odds on college football’s 2017 national championship in the wake of signing day and the results in the SEC are all over the place: huge jumps for Auburn and Tennessee, a small one for Ole Miss and unchanged odds for Alabama, Georgia and LSU, the latter four all recognized as signing no worse than equal and in most places better than (hell, in Alabama’s case, much better than) the Tigers and Vols.
I get that this really isn’t that mysterious, that it’s simply a reflection of how the money’s flowed in over the past few days, much I would assume from fan bases that are excited over new blood. (If so, how jaded are Tide fans these days?) I can see why Tennessee’s odds moved, given the likely state of the East, but Auburn’s improved fortunes are a little harder to understand.
In any event, let’s see how Booch’s team deals with the pressure of heightened expectations.
I know this is about the NFL, but if you don’t think there’s a college conference commissioner out there who’s heard about its new live game data arrangement with an outfit called Sportradar and isn’t stoking his chin while deep in thought about “a lucrative new deal”, you are kidding yourself. Besides, aren’t we always being told how much the college game could improve by emulating the pro product?
If that doesn’t offend you, then you might enjoy a couple of pieces from the Las Vegas Sun:
