Let’s look at opening numbers in this cutting-edge College Football market and offer up some picks for the coming collegiate gridiron season

<p><strong>Renowned 2017 NCAA Football Games of the Year Point Spreads Now Out at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook</strong></p><p>Looking at some opening numbers from the 2017 NCAA College Football Games of the Year from Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook compared to the same matchups last season—even with the strength of the Home site built into these Futures Book Point Spreads—you can get a feel of what the astute oddsmakers at this sportsbooks think of the state of many Division I programs heading into the new season, which kicks off on in less than three weeks on Saturday, Aug. 26.</p><p>Four such games that reveal some of these numerical and power rating perceptions come on Saturday, Sept. 9 with Iowa at Iowa State fighting for the Cy-Hawk Trophy in Ames (Iowa 42-22 SU in series), Pitt in State College to face Penn State for the spalding Trophy (PSU 50-43-4), Utah in Provo to face rivals BYU for the Old Wagon Wheel in the Holy War (BYU 48-35-3) and Boise State heading to Pullman to face Washington State. Last year, Iowa was a big 15½-point favorite at Home in Iowa City while this year, the SuperBook have the Hawkeyes as just 2-point chalks against the Cyclones showing some perceived regression in Iowa—which rolled to a 42-3 victory in that game last year—with maybe some slight upgrade in the Big 12’s Iowa State. Another game with a double-digit Point Spread swing in this market compared to last year is Penn State-Pitt. In 2016, the Panthers were actually 3½-point Home favorites, while this season, we find the Nittany Lions big 16-point chalks at Home with Heisman candidates Trace McSorley (QB, 32/1 to win Heisman Trophy, 5Dimes) and Saquon Barkley (RB, +1425 to win Heisman Trophy, 5Dimes).</p><p> </p><p style="text-align:center"><strong><img src="" style="height:316px;width:624px" /></strong></p><p> </p><p>For the Holy War in the Beehive State last year—won by Utah, 20-19—the SuperBook opened the Pac 12’s Utah as 6-point Home favorites for the game which was played in Salt Lake City, while this Summer, we find Independents BYU listed as 3-point chalks—a 9-point swing—at Home in Provo. And last year at Home on the Blue Turf in Boise, Boise State were installed as 5½-point favorites over the Pac 12’s Cougars while this time, QB Luke Falk and Washington State are 6-point favorites over the Mountain West Conference’s Broncos. Boise State ended up winning (but not covering) last year, 31-28.</p><p>Here are all of the opening numbers for the 2017 College Football Games of the Year for select NCAA Division I FBS games posted
