The Golden Nugget has some early lines for the football season. Some observations on games of interest. Link

GEORGIA
OKLAHOMA ST. -3
Okie St is basically getting the home field points in the opener. I am assuming Vegas knows Richt's road record?!?!

VIRG. TECH @ATLANTA GA
ALABAMA -4
People are going to jump all over Alabama at -4. No one outside the ACC respects the ACC.

USC -6½
OHIO ST.
I like tOSU at +6.5 to USC with a new QB on the road for the first time. Not sure if that is enough to get the Buckeyes the outright win.

GEORGIA TECH
MIAMI (FL) -4
At first this one seems like a head scratcher, but lets investigate more. This will be GT's second Thurs game in a row and on the road. Tough to win back to back Thursday games.

TENNESSEE
FLORIDA -27
Depends on what mood Urban Meyer is in that day. He may wake up feeling great and sympathetic. He may not.

ARIZONA ST.
GEORGIA -14
I really like UGA on this line. The Sun Devils are annually overrated. Their women are not.

AUBURN
TENNESSEE -6
This may be the only game where the total and spread are the exact same.

ALABAMA
MISSISSIPPI -3
Ole Miss getting the home spread, but not any more.

FLORIDA -11
LSU
Florida -11 @ LSU..WOW that seems like a lot for Saturday night in Baton Rouge.

OKLAHOMA @DALLAS TX
TEXAS -3
Early edge to Texas in a neutral site game.

VIRGINIA TECH
GEORGIA TECH -6
Seems a little high right now, considering GT is underdog to Miami and FSU. GT getting 2-3 points besides the home field.

BOSTON COLLEGE
NOTRE DAME -7
Outside of USC and Pitt(huh?), looks like ND will be favored in every game. Here comes the national title talk. Meanwhile, Utah has had two undefeated seasons since ND's last national championship.

GEORGIA @JACKSONVL, FL
FLORIDA -16
I could see this one being -6 or -26. Again, depends on Meyer's motivation.

FLORIDA ST.
FLORIDA -20
That wouldn't be a very nice way to send Bobby out.  The Gators are double-digit favs in every contest.

GEORGIA
GEORGIA TECH -1
Basically saying on a neutral site that UGA wins.

CLEMSON PICK
SOUTH CAROLINA
Looks spot on to me.
