College football betting odds 2014: Opening weekend lines released


The month of June is quickly soaring by, meaning that very soon we’ll be at the two-month mark of the 2014 college football season finally getting underway.

This year, there are some tremendous opening weekend match ups, although if you were to look at the early betting lines that Las Vegas has thrown out, you really wouldn’t considered the match ups all that intriguing.

This past week, the Golden Nugget released their lines for that opening weekend, and despite the big-name pairings, there are some heavy, HEAVY favorites.

THURSDAY 8/28

Texas A&M Aggies at South Carolina Gamecocks -9
Boise State Broncos vs. Mississippi Rebels -9 (Atlanta)

FRIDAY 8/29

UNLV Rebels at Arizona Wildcats -23.5
BYU Cougars -16.5 at Connecticut Huskies

SATURDAY 8/30

Arkansas Razorbacks at Auburn Tigers -24
Colorado State Rams at Colorado Buffaloes -4 (Denver)
Clemson Tigers at Georgia Bulldogs -9
California Golden Bears at Northwestern Wildcats -9.5
UCLA Bruins -21.5 at Virginia Cavaliers
Ohio State Buckeyes -14 at Navy Midshipmen
Penn State Nittany Lions -2.5 at Central Florida Knights (Ireland)
West Virginia Mountaineers at Alabama Crimson Tide -27.5 (Atlanta)
Florida State Seminoles -17 vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys (Arlington)
LSU Tigers -7 vs. Wisconsin Badgers (Houston)

MONDAY 9/1

Miami Hurricanes PICK at Louisville Cardinals

Of course, especially given what Oklahoma State lost from last year, it’s not much of a shock that the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles are that big of a favorite.

    Arkansas @ Auburn!!!

    I’m sure Bielema will find something trivial to complain about between now and August 30th, meanwhile, Malzahn will be busy getting his players prepared to play at a tempo so fast in the late August Alabama heat that those pigs will be begging for a mudhole well b4 halftime!!!
