College Football Early Betting Line Moves


With a week under our belts and now a chance to get into a routine, it is Week 2 in college football and here are the largest early line moves.

CFB – Friday (305) UTAH STATE at (306) UTAH 9:00 ET ESPN2

Utah has a chance to move up in Pac-12 South based on how both Arizona schools started and off the win over Michigan, the money is following them early in state rivalry matchup, up from -10 to -13.5. Utes have better athletes, but Aggies always prepared and the visitor is solid 8-3-1 ATS of late. Latest Trend – 77% backing Utah

CFB – (315) EAST CAROLINA at (316) FLORIDA 7:00 ET  ESPN2

East Carolina lost a couple of very key performers from its offense and only defeated Towson 28-20 as four-touchdown favorites in opener. Bettors are thinking a more offensive-minded Florida team will swamp the Pirates in -The Swamp – and elevated the Gators four points to -20. This could be right with Florida 12-0 ATS as double digit nonconference faves off a 10+ point win. Latest Trend – 92% backing Florida

CFB – (323) LSU at (324) MISSISSIPPI STATE  9:15 ET  ESPN

Mississippi State BulldogsThough LSU will travel to Starksville without having a game under their belt, they have still been lifted from -2 to -4.5. While Mississippi State still has QB Dak Prescott, he only has six other returning starters which is why the Bulldogs are a rising underdog. Though this game blew by the key number of three, it is hard for football bettors to overlook the Tigers are 10-1 SU and ATS as visitors. Latest Trend – 85% backing LSU

CFB – (327) KANSAS STATE at (328) UTSA  12:00 ET   FS1

With UTSA having scored 32 points and posting 525 yards at Arizona, those placing bets are taking a second look at the Roadrunners in spite of their inexperience. Kansas State’s rebuilding is not as monumental, yet still brought back only 10 starters and has fallen from -20 to -17. UTSA is only 4-12 ATS off a road loss, however, the score margin is only 4.2 PPG. Latest Trend – 80% backing UTSA


No doubt, Clemson has suffered some losses on the offensive side of the ball, yet one would not think off hand the Tigers would be a sinking home favorite to Appalachian State, yet they are. Clemson is down two points to -17 against a Mountaineers offense that can move the ball and the Tigers have a game at Louisville on Thursday. Latest Trend – Interesting, 80% backing Clemson

CFB – (363) MID. TENN. STATE at (364) ALABAMA  4:00 ET  SECN

Nick Saban has not been one to run up points for the sake of it, believing his teams are ultimately more than good enough on the field. With a 2-8 ATS record since 2011 when favored by 30 or more points, Alabama went from -36 to -34 playing host to Middle Tennessee State. Latest Trend – Interesting, 80% backing Alabama


When I saw South Carolina released as either -9 or -9.5 point favorites, my immediate reaction was this team does not look good enough to be favored by that much against any halfway decent clubs like Kentucky. Clearly, other agreed and the Gamecocks have settled back to -7.5. Expect the spread winner to come down to which quarterback makes the fewer mistakes. Latest Trend – 63% backing Kentucky
