Follow all major NFL and college football line moves from the past 24 hours on our Daily Line Move Log.

NFL
301 Colts/302 Texans- This game was put up at pick em yesterday, now up to -4.5 with Matt Hasselbeck starting. It jumped quickly once Hasselbeck was announced as the starter. I don’t usually question opening lines, but I thought at the time that line was nuts. Andrew Luck is obviously not right and will miss the game with a bad shoulder. Hasselbeck has his own problems being in the hospital with a severe virus. I’m involved in a small contest and I was asked to make a line for the game on Tuesday and I made it -5.5. Too many of today’s bookmakers just play follow the leader.

 

College Football
305 Washington/306 USC- A little bump on USC from -16.5 to -17.

 

379 California/380 Utah- Some sharp money along with public, showing on Utah. From -7 to -7.5
