Where did you find those lines. I heard one show say that Fl St opened at -7 over NIU. That was hard to believe

The house is only interested in half betting one side and half taking the other side.....they get 10% from the losers.....that's why the line moves to adjust for over betting on one side trying to even up the sides. The house only has about a 2% advantage in blackjack, so getting 5% on the overall sportsbook action is more than twice blackjack.

FYI: Some of the other houses have got their lines out..

LSU (-3.5) over Clemson
USC (-4.5) over Michigan

You can see them all at www.madduxsports.com Just click on the college football lines (to the right of the page)

That LSU line is crazy! We beat the clemtaters in their house by 10 in a game we should have won by 14 plus points and they have LSU at only minus 3.5 on a neutral field??

A couple of things to remember. First, the transitive property does NOT apply to football games/matchups. Second, LSU has definitely underperformed this year against some teams they should have trounced (see Towson, Auburn, and Arkansas). And one of the biggest advantages LSU had when they played us was being at home, so the neutral field part is sort of an advantage to Clemson.
