A Boise Bump
Uh, oh - Vegas has shifted the point spread in the Georgia-Boise State game. It's gone from opening at six to one and a half in June and now to three. Ouch; three points is a tough spread to bet on. The Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic hasn't been the most mobile line, though. "The biggest game of the weekend is also all over the board. Oregon opened as a 3-point favorite over LSU earlier this year, but early betting turned LSU into a favorite at most places. This Hilton now lists the Ducks as a 1.5-point favorite although you can expect that line to move as we approach the actual game." I'm not really a betting man, but I have seen my record in picking games; if you really want to bet and win, just go with the opposite of what I pick. Always seems to work.
