Biggest Line Movers of Week 1 College Football

Steam Games or Weak Lines?

Below we will isolate some of college football of the biggest line moves in Week 1, focusing exclusively on FBS matchups. Let’s try to determine whether the school football odds on such games are moving because the wise guys”know something” or because it was a terrible line to begin with and has been manipulated from the sharps.
We’ve identified three line shifts that were significant because the vapor is blowing in that direction and it’s your responsibility to determine whether to grab the group or move the opposite way in your college football selections, and choose a poor number. Without further ado, let’s go!
South Alabama vs Nebraska (Saturday, August 31st, 12:00 PM ET)
The Cornhuskers opened as a whopping 32-point home preferred from the South Alabama Jaguars that were considered, however that number has shrunk to as high as 36.
Nebraska attracted a whole lot of attention after completing strong season by winning four of their past six contests, such as a solid victory over Michigan State. Much is expected of the Huskers and year mentor Scott Frost, as his team is currently ranked 24th to begin the year this past year.
Much of this hype has sent online as by stomping a tin can like South Alabama Nebraska will look to show worthy of their charging, spiraling upward.
South Carolina vs North Carolina (Saturday, August 31st, 3:30 PM ET)
The Gamecocks opened as 7 1/2 point favorites but that amount has spiked to as high as 11 at many of the foreign books. This game is not being played at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill but at a neutral Website, the Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers.
Just because a group is right of this”vs” does not necessarily mean they’re at home and oftentimes it requires the people a few days to figure that out. Additionally, this rivalry has been possessed by South Carolina winning six of the past seven encounters against the Tar Heels, as well as going 6-1 ATS in their last seven neutral site matches.
This document is in stark contrast to North Carolina’s 1-5 ATS mark in neutral-site events. The sharps has a whiff of the Heels 0-4 ATS record over the past four games from August so it’s little wonder the’Cocks are currently becoming heavy play here.
Duke vs Alabama (Saturday, August 31st, 3:30 PM ET)
Expectations for the team of Nick Saban are always through the roof and this season is the same. The Crimson Tide embarks about what must be another national championship voyage this season and the very first casualty is going to be the Duke Blue Devils.
The oddsmakers know the hype train that follows Tide football that’s the reason why they set up them final year since a 30-point house favorite from a group in Duke that travelled 8-5 and conquered Temple in the Independence Bowl.
Sure, Duke was no national contender, nor will they be this season, but winning it and becoming a bowl game has to account for something, right? But not in the squares that never watched a number large enough to keep them from getting down on the Tide’s world.
As of the writing, Alabama has become a 33 1/2 stage favorite despite the fact that their celebrity junior linebacker hurt his knee and will probably be out for the season. The reduction of the defensive captain of these Tide did not make a whit of difference to the general public, who will throw their money to the fire!
