Once again it's my favorite day of the week during my favorite time of the year, Saturday during College Football season.
It's been a great season so far, both in the quality of games we're watching, and of course in the all important game picking department. This weekend should be no different.
As in most seasons and as the mass media coverage gets bigger and bigger, many more "experts" are watching highlight shows instead of the actual games. Public perception then becomes skewed enough so the lines move enormously just by certain announcers saying one thing or another regardless of the relevance to the point spread.
Wild movements have been the norm this year and even though we're heading into the 7th inning we still can find those gifts once in a while.
Let's take a look at this weeks line movers and see if we can come up with anything.
It looks like the public may believe in West Virginia again as the line in their game at UConn has gone from the Mountaineers -2 to WVU -4. Is this love for WVU or distaste for the Huskies? Maybe both.
The line in Miami's game at Virginia has gone from the Hurricanes -1 to the Cavaliers -2. Maybe the 45 point whooping from last year is having an affect?
Army was initially getting nine points for their game at Air Force but it's down to seven-and-a-half. Army has been hot as of late, felt weird to even type that.
The line in the Auburn at Ole Miss game has gone from the Rebels giving four to the Rebels laying six-and-a-half. I guess people are thinking that Houston Nutt's squad is going to scare and we all know Auburn hasn't shown any ability to get the ball in the end zone consistently.
Kansas State is now only +8 1/2 after opening at +10 1/2 for their game at Kansas. Maybe people think the Jayhawks are still hurting from the beat down they took last week?
Bowling Green is now just a 6 point favorite over Kent State after opening at -8 1/2. We never know what to expect from either of these teams week to week.
