The first Sunday of the college football season features just a pair of games on the schedule. We talk to sportsbooks about the action from the first Sunday of NCAAF action.
Ohio Bobcats at Louisville Cardinals - Open: -21, Move: -20.5, Move: -21.5
Expectations are high for the Cardinals, both for their season, and for Heisman-hopeful quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Since early money came in on the dog, Louisville money has been steadily flooding in.
"We opened Louisville -21 and the first initial money was on the dog so we went to -20.5 about two weeks ago," Peter Childs of Sportsbook.ag told Covers. "Since going to 20.5, we’ve seen a ton of Louisville money come in. We eventually went to -21 on Wednesday and just this morning we came off that key number of 21 to 21.5, hoping to get some buy back at +21.5."
Colorado Buffaloes at Colorado State Rams - Open: -2.5, Move: -3
The "Rocky Mountain Showdown" saw early action primarily on the home squad to get the line moving and could move even further closer to kick off as the Rams keep seeing steady money.
"We eventually went to CSU -3 and we’ve seen real good two-way action at that number," says Childs. "But we’re definitely writing more tickets on the favorite so just this morning we hung a -115 on CSU. Nearly 65% of the action is on CSU. If we continue to book money on the favorite, we’ll come off -3 and go to -3.5"
