The College Football Lines for Week One of the 2008-2009 College Football season have been posted. The first sportsbook to post odds on most events first, is 5dimes.com. Betting action is extremely light at this point, early August, with most line moves so far being in the 1/2 point range, or not moving at all. One significant move was Miami Ohio opening at -1 and moving to -2.5 over Vanderbilt. With the lines being posted a month in advaNCe for week one, it’s best to sit back and wait before betting. So much can happen in a month. The lines can also be easily manipulated right now. It doesn’t take much money to move them and the sharps will do just that to set up the board to where they can step in later at favorable lines.

Week One matchups of interest? How about Utah visiting the Big House to play Michigan? Michigan opened up -5.5 but the light early action is on Utah. Remember what happened last year in week one when Michigan was upset by App State? Think the Wolverines will be ready this year? How about USC visiting Virginia as huge 20.5 point favorites. Seems like a lot of points to me. Perhaps the Game of the week is Alabama at Clemson where that line has the Tigers favored by 6.

Week one ends with the Tennessee Vols visiting the UCLA Bruins and the oddsmakers have the visiting Vols favored by 7. While we mentioned at the top of this page that most of these lines will bouNCe around and it’s best to wait, this Game may be an exception. With UCLA getting a touchdown, playing at home, on a Monday Night with the Nation watching, this line figured to close at less than 7. Can’t see it going higher so if you like UCLA, now might be the time to buy.
