Opening Lines Are Posted

While you've been goofing off and having fun, offshore oddsmakers have been busy over the holiday weekend with designs on your pocketbook. The first lines are out for the opening week of the season, and not much is thought of Phillip Fulmer's Tennessee Volunteers. California opened as a 3-point favorite over Tennessee in Knoxville, according to Betmill. Some other lines of note: UCLA is a 5.5 favorite over Utah; USC is a 10-point choice at Arkansas; Pittsburgh is a 2.5 favorite over Virginia; Alabama is favored by 14 over Hawaii; Wisconsin is a 2.5 favorite at Bowling Green; Arizona is a 7-point choice over Brigham Young; Miami is 3.5 over Florida State and Notre Dame is a 7.5 favorite at Georgia Tech. Of course, the lines are in flux, so you will have to go to Betmill's main site and click on College Game on the left-hand side to get the latest and greatest numbers.
