    FanDuel had the lines as Uconn +900/USU -1600
    Pinnacle had the lines as Uconn +1700/USU -3300

    Weird game even pregame, decided not to pull the trigger but I was close on that USU -1600 line

    3-0. Good start. I’m sure I’ll got 3-15 over the next three weeks.

    if anyone sees good promos for existing customers for the upcoming Week 1 CFB and Week 1 NFL, post it in here. For example, DK often does something like (bet 50 dollars to win 50 dollars for Josh Allen to complete one pass) or something like that.

    Fellas, I found the honey hole. A casino two hours from me had college football win totals for teams that had already played still posted. I had to drive over and hammer some extremely stale lines. Nebraska under 7.5, Northwestern over 3.5, Vanderbilt over 2.5. (I couldn’t resist Vandy since it was +130.)

    Then, I grabbed Wake Forest under at 8.5 and Notre Dame under 9.5. That sportsbook is so, so bad.

    I played one hand of blackjack on my way out and won $50. Great start to the week.

    I was able to get $1,500 down. They told me the manager didn’t come in until 2 p.m., so I wonder if I could’ve gotten more on each one.

    How do we feel about week 1?

    Honestly, the lines are incredibly sharp for Week 1 since we’ve had an entire summer to bet them. A lot of the numbers I bet aren’t there anymore, so I can’t recommend them.

    However, I have NC State -10 and it’s up to -11.5 now, but I think that still might be a play if you’re looking. NC State’s defense, which allowed 19 ppg last season, returns seven staters. Plus, they get back a really good LB in Payton Wilson and a few others who missed a lot of last season due to injury. I don’t think East Carolina can score enough to keep up.

    The Ohio State and UGA lines are very inflated.

    Pretty intrigued with Cincinnati. I feel like getting a touchdown is a lot against a team that primarily runs the ball.

    when it comes to Pac 12 games, I think Utah can beat Florida. But I cannot envision a top flight SEC team like UGA losing to any Pac 12 team

    What do we think about Penn State and Purdue? Looks like Purdue's QB is returning and they had an awesome passing game last year. +9 in a teaser seems fantastic.

    The total dropping 7 points is the worrying part of a double digit favorite

    I wonder if that’s from the public realizing ECU is going to be more run-based this year instead of slinging it around. I agree with you, though.

    it very well could be. it's not weather. I have the same thesis you do but a favorite giving more points with a total dropping by a TD is just a red flag to me

    I think it is an especially well thought promo for DK because there is a good chance one side never leads by 7.

    They've done this promo three times (NBA Finals and last weekends NW/Neb and ILL/WYO games) and they've paid out both side 2 of 3 times

    Then you should bet first points of the game are a FG. I'd be curious what % of games start out 7-0. I'd guess its in the 35% range.

    bro Hey Hermano

    well, you could still lose if you bet first points is a FG and Bills ML and the Rams score a TD first and the Bills never lead by 7
