Week 1 (Hawaii Favored by 59.5 Points)

We are happy to welcome back Doc's Sports as one of our sponsors. To start each week, we take a look at that naughty business of oddsmaking. It's legal in Las Vegas and strictly against the law elsewhere, but for some odd reason, people you meet on the street can tell you that on Saturday, California is a 5.5 favorite against Tennessee, or that Oklahoma State is getting 6.5 points at Georgia.

Before we forget, you can get a copy of Doc's 2007 Sports Journal by going to this link.

This is certainly the biggest Thursday of the season, with 16 games scheduled, highlighted by Louisiana State (-18) at Mississippi State and Oregon State (-7) playing host to Utah.

On Friday, Navy (-21) is at Temple and Washington (-3) is at Syracuse.

Games of note Saturday: Nevada (+21) at Nebraska; Virginia (-4.5) at Wyoming; Washington State (+14) at Wisconsin; Georgia Tech (+2.5) at Notre Dame; Wake Forest (+6.5) at Boston College; Kansas State (+13.5) at Auburn and, last but not least Northern Colorado (+59.5) at Hawaii. Yes, you read that right. We can't ever recall seeing a line that high.

On Monday, Florida State (-3.5) is at Clemson. Numbers are in flux, so get all the data at Doc's by clicking here.

He said "games of note". That is not a game to note. Sorry.
