College Football 2013: Some Early Las Vegas Lines

New, 19 comments

Some in Las Vegas, namely the Golden Nugget, are already setting lines for college football games.

The Golden Nugget has over 200 game lines already out, and Jason Kirk of SB Nation is on the case.

Let's look at a few choice Kentucky lines:

If these games are all this noncompetitive, Stoops & Co. will surely suffer to some degree, even in the honeymoon period. Could this be the toughest schedule ever for a Kentucky team in the 12-game era? I think it's likely.

There are lots of other great lines out there. Consider that the USC Gamecocks are 4.5 point favorites over a really good Clemson team albeit in Columbia, and that Louisville is only a 3 point favorite at the Cincinnati Bearcats. The Texas Longhorns as an 8-point dog to the Baylor Bears is probably causing some consternation among a Burnt Orange Nation already feeling ever-decreasing love toward Mack Brown.

I get the impression that the Vegas line-setters are not as sold on Louisville as many college football prognosticators. The thing is, though, Louisville has such a weak schedule that an undefeated season is not out of the question.

Check them all out and leave your comments below.
