Updated Golden Nugget Game of the Year Lines

I posted the Golden Nugget game of the year opening lines earlier this morning. Since that time I found an updated version at Betting Moves and there has been some significant line movement.  As a Pac 12 aficionado the opening line that really jumped out at me as a  was Colorado -1.5 vs Colorado State. That one has since been bet up to -5. Here are the updated lines and betting moves.  DATE TEAMS NEUTRAL LOCATION OPEN...

Handicapping the 2015 National Championship Future...

I’ll be the first to admit that when it comes to National Championship futures, there hasn’t been much money to be made in the last 10 years or so. The big upsets just haven’t been there because of the way the old BCS system worked. The biggest long shot of the past 10 years was probably Auburn. But if you were paying attention to a certain trend, maybe they weren’t really that big of a long shot...

2015 National Championship Future Bets

With National Signing Day and Spring Games officially in the books, college football enters the dog days of summer until fall camps begin in August. However, from a wagering perspective, this is the time of year that Las Vegas offers yet another sector of moneymaking.  Future bets. More specifically, 2015 National Championship future bets. Not for the faint-hearted, these betting tickets require insurmountable patience for...

Tennessee & LSU Football 2015 – Better, ...

TENNESSEE OFFENSE This was a sore spot for the Vols last season starting a TON of underclassmen – but 2015’s offense should reap the rewards of 2014’s struggles. UT scored 23 points or less 5 times last season and went 0-5 SU & 1-4 ATS in those games; they scored 24 points or more 7 times vs FBS foes and went 7-1 SU (only losing by 3 points in Athens) & 4-2 ATS.  This year all but one starter returns and we should...

Ole Miss & South Carolina Football 2015 –...

OLE MISS OFFENSE The Rebels offense slowed what could have been a very special 2014 season in Oxford – besides the 35-31 loss to Auburn where they did their part  – they scored just 10 COMBINED points in their other 3 losses! This could be a classic case of “addition by subtraction” by losing starting QB Bo Wallace, while 9 starters return to the offense.  How well Jr. QB Chad Kelly, the likely starter, equates to SEC...

2015 SEC East Season Win Totals

Upon diving into our initial piece regarding college football win totals a week prior, I provided my input with regard to the SEC West. A keen soft spot for some, I nudged bettors to perhaps glance at the over for Alabama, Arkansas, and both the Tigers of LSU and Auburn, while I recommended the opposite for Ole Miss, Texas A&M and Mississippi State. In essence, many recreational wagerers base calculations and numbers off...

2015 Nebraska Season Win Totals

Here is my breakdown of the 2015 Nebraska season win totals.  When talking stats I like to refer to Football Study Hall and Football Outsiders; Their stat breakdowns are more in-depth than game stats; they take into account many factors. Vegas Sports Stat (@VegasSportsStat) takes into account many factors when trying to look for value for a season long win total bet. There are many unknowns when you place a bet and have to...

Duke & Maryland Football 2015 – Better, ...

DUKE OFFENSE The Blue Devils lose a ton of offensive firepower heading into the 2015 campaign which is of concern considering they were just 1-3 last season when scoring 20 points or less. QB Anthony Boone has moved on & Head Coach David Cutcliffe will likely turn to Jr. Thomas Sirk to take over – although he lacks experience which could be an issue in this QB critical offense.  He does have some nice playmakers on the...

Nebraska Football 2015 – Better, worse or ab...

NEBRASKA OFFENSE I actually think the Nebraska offense will be better in 2015. Granted, all world Ameer Abudullah is gone as well as two starting OL, but Nebraska is returning a QB in Tommy Armstrong who will be in his third year of starting. There is a brand new OC, but at the same time he’ll be very familiar with people like Jordan Westerkamp, Jamal Turner and Demornay Pierson-El, who will be out in patterns. Plus, OC...
