    I personally can't bring myself to pick a side here, but if I could bet using Bodog's square lineset, I'd be all over +3 (-120). Unfortunately, Bodog will switch you off of that lineset very quickly if you sign up there.

    I have a Bodog account, and they're giving me +3 (-135), which isn't nearly as enticing. Made a small play anyway.

    Lean towards under.

    This is insane. There's no way Vegas would allow scalping like this. No way.

    Don't care either way because I won't play the game, but if your so confident why aren't you playing it? I just can't see someone coming on here telling people matter of factly and not even play the game!

    Colts bettors were also in denial when Saints got hit hard from 6.5 to 4.5. Same will happen here

    I agree Bodog sucks when it comes to ML's. I may swap books. But on the line movement: The line movement either way doesn't determine the outcome of a game! The game hasn't even started yet and already people are saying Oregon has won simply based on line movement. Sure line movement, stats, etc play into making a decision but I'm a firm believer if you feel confident in a play, play it. Don't second guess it because money is being thrown around one or another

    I see your point. But there is more than one way to look at it...

    Do you think they opened the lines as they did to get the action they wanted and received?

    Its going to move as the money rolls in regardless. The scalping is just a byproduct of this. The question is which side did it roll in on and which side did they want it to roll in on?

    Anything can happen tonight, should be a great game!

    Ah, the infamous 'line movement' thread. No Coin, all bigtime games are going to have line movement since they are so heavily bet. I have watched both teams play at least six games this season & Auburn is the more complete team. It is really that simple.

    how do you ever look at the altered vig ATS? i do all the time and it seems to hit a lot if you take the increased vig.
    im not playing the game but if i had money on it i would have to lean Auburn but i bet way to much to endure this freak show thats going on with the line.

    [COLOR=#000000 !important]this line movement is officially insane.
    at my book its now offering Auburn -2 ( -130 ) or you can take them ML at +105 and they have the Ducks at +2 ( +110 ) or you can take them ML -125

    you guys freak out way too much about 3 points in line movement....if Auburn goes up 14-0 in the first quarter, I will bet my house you can get Oregon +7 in live betting. In a game like this its best to wait

    I don't know about my house. But I too believe this is the best route to go.

    im not saying i bet my house on Oregon, I'm saying if that scenario happens, you will get a very favorable line, and i will bet my house on that probability

    the line movement was caused by sharps middleing their early bets the score did not reflect the TOTAL DOMINATION OF AUBURN OVER OREGON............................

    I disagree. Sharps don't middle until much later in the day. The line movement was due to squares betting the Ducks. They saw the line going down sharply, there was no reason to middle early in the day.

    Squares lose this one. A great middle was betting Oregon -1 -105 for the second half.

    But, this is still a game that could have gone either way. Nobody should brag that they were "so smart" because they won. Another day, another outcome.

    This game was a coin flip. That's all.

    The erratic line reflected as much.
